These categories are broken into Simple, Moderate, and Complex compounding. Simple compounding involves preparing compounds from USP monographs and peer-reviewed journals or even just reconstituting and manipulating commercial products within manufacturer guidelines. Required procedures and equipment are well documented. Moderate compounding requires special calculations and procedures and is generally not as well documented as Simple compounding. Complex compounding requires special training, environment, facilities, equipment, and procedures.
Important Disclosure: I get a small referral fee from Amazon if you purchase the three supplements I recommend. I provide this website, the forum, and my videos completely free of charge, these sales help support my continued fitness work. You know I only rarely recommend the purchase of anything. If you are not 100% convinced you need something, don’t buy it! If you find better prices on any of these items anywhere, please buy the cheapest product and send me the link! Just check out the store carefully, ‘cheaper’ is not always less expensive – only deal with places that have good customer service and 100% satisfaction guarantees. I have always used amazon for my own purchases because I find them to be a great combination of good prices and top notch customer satisfaction which is why I use them here.
