How To Make Antibiotic Capsules

How To Make Antibiotic Capsules

Antibiotics are one of our biggest medical needs for fighting infection and disease. There are a number of herbs that are effective antibiotics and have been used for centuries.

You Will Need: ¼ chopped onion, 2 hot jalapeño peppers, 2 tbsp. grated horseradish, ¼ cup grated ginger, 2 tbsp turmeric powder, ¼ cup chopped garlic, 1/4 cup Moringa leaves, 1/4 cup Echinacea, 700 ml apple cider vinegar and empty gelatin capsules (size 0 or 00 are fairly typical).

Directions:

  1. Chop all the ingredients and put them in a blender, pouring the apple cider vinegar in the last.
  2. Blend ingredients on high until a smooth, consistent liquid, about the consistency of a smoothie.
  3. Pour liquid into jars and store in a cool, dark place for two weeks.
  4. Pour the liquid into a metal baking dish and put it in the oven at low heat, allowing the moisture to evaporate and the liquid to thicken. You want it to be thicker than cake batter so that you can spread it on parchment and it won’t run.
  5. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment and spread the thickened mixture out in an even layer.
  6. Return the mixture to the oven, again on low heat, and dry the mixture thoroughly, but don’t burn it. When dry, it will turn brown.
  7. Break up the now dry mixture and place it in a jar blender (or regular blender if you don’t have a jar blender). Chop it up at high speed into a fine powder.
  8. Using a spoon or scoop, fill the inner part of the gelatin capsules to the point where the powder is flush with the edge. Cap it with the outer part of the capsule.

Keep your finished antibiotic capsules in a sealed, moisture-proof jar. If you have a silica desiccant package available, put it in the jar to protect the capsules from moisture. The capsules last up to a year or even more if kept in the right condition. You should start with one capsule a day and increase your dosage depending on how you feel. 

Note: If you are going to make capsules like this on a fairly regular basis, you might want to buy a capsule filling tray to make the job easier.

    following, to get Nicole’s recommended dosages. When I have a colon infection, I take 2-4 small pills every hours of something I’ve made in the past: dried and powdered rue, wormwood, garlic, st john’s wort, etc which i roll with honey into pills. i alternate that with charcoal each hour until I feel like i’ve beat it.

  • Kathleen Posted May 10, 2020 7:12 AM

    I have a home freeze dryer. Would this be acceptable to dry the ingredients while keeping the integrity of the ingredients strong?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted May 12, 2020 10:38 AM

      Hi Kathleen,

      Thank you for your comment. In theory, freeze drying preserves all the flavor and necessary vitamins in the food item as there is no heat damage to final product, so it should be alright for you to do this, but I have never done it so I can never be 100% sure.

      If you do it, please let us know how it went.
      God bless!

  • Kevin J Ward Posted May 11, 2020 10:58 PM

    Nicole, Thank you. How much Miranga leaves and echinacea should go here.

    • The Lost Herbs Posted May 12, 2020 10:34 AM

      Hi Kevin,

        God bless you!

  • Nicole Posted May 14, 2020 6:23 PM

    Hi Nicole, is there a minimum age of the ingredients can be taken? I know not everybody can swallow pills, but I could open a capsule and put it into a yogurt or smoothie for a child? Also, does the same dosage goes for kids(one per day and see how it goes?)?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted June 30, 2020 11:15 AM

      Hi Nicole,

      Thank you so much for your interest in our work.
      If you are willing to give antibiotic capsules to a child, you should give him half of the adult dosage.

      God bless!

  • RoseAnne Cargile Posted May 17, 2020 12:39 PM

    Where can you get Echinacea and Moringa leaves?

  • Lisa Miller Posted June 7, 2020 1:32 PM

    Thank you, Dr. Nicole, I have started using herbs and making medicine from nature and I feel so much healthier. I have more energy, less pain, better concentration, and overall feel pretty good. I’m currently working on a way to stop taking Rx acid reducer.

    • The Lost Herbs Posted June 30, 2020 11:17 AM

      Hi Lisa,

      Thank you so much for your comment.
      We are so happy that your nature path is going well!

      God bless!

  • Mary Jean Posted June 22, 2020 5:05 PM

    Lisa I do NOT believe that Nicole is a doctor.

    • The Lost Herbs Posted June 30, 2020 11:17 AM

      Hi Mary Jean,

  • Lora Partain Posted December 3, 2020 3:09 PM

  • L.A. Posted December 7, 2020 7:27 PM

    Why do you want it to sit for 2 weeks in a fridge before you dry it?

    • Jen Posted September 20, 2021 4:53 PM

      I wish to know the same thing. Is it fermenting?

  • Tamara Posted January 7, 2021 1:09 AM

    Will this antibiotic work for an E.coli infection?

  • Cam Posted March 23, 2021 8:25 AM

    Fresh or dried leaves?

  • kat Posted May 20, 2021 2:58 PM

    hi nicole, love these articles! just starting in herbs etc. so with current situation way it is, what would you suggest the first things I do, to build my emergency “stash” of medicinals for SHTF? need to do now, but dont want to get overwhelmed, spend too much and not do it right. can you help please? thanks!

  • Stephen M Posted July 29, 2021 12:58 PM

    Hello! I really appreciate you Nicole! I have a condition of the skin on my face called “pseudo-folliculitis”. If I shave, the skin heals closed over the hair follicles on my face causing severe inflammation. My dermatologist prescribed antibiotics to manage the inflammation which I stopped taking several years ago. Is this the most potent antibiotic? Thank you so much!

  • Yiny Posted August 13, 2021 7:03 PM

    Can children take this also?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted March 4, 2022 1:49 PM

      Hi Yiny,

      Side effects from natural remedies are rare but can occur. It is best to check with your children’s doctor before adding or changing any natural remedies or supplements to their diet.

      Many blessings and good health!

  • Marletta Posted September 21, 2021 6:42 PM

    I am wanting to make some of these, I do have a couple of questions. What size capsule should be used if there is a specific size? Can already ground ingredients be mixed together and used?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted March 4, 2022 1:53 PM

      Hi Marletta,

      Size 0 or 00 are fairly typical.

      You should start with one capsule a day and increase your dosage depending on how you feel.

      As with any natural remedy, always ask your doctor or another medical professional when taking herbs. Many herbs interact with prescription drugs and are not recommended for use by someone pregnant or nursing.

  • Pam Posted May 15, 2022 9:21 PM

    Are the moringa leaves and echinacea dried or fresh?
    Thank you
