Magnesium Stearate Overview

Magnesium stearate, a magnesium stearate salt, is an additive, a flowable agent used in drug or supplement capsules and tablets. Stearic acid is a saturated fat, while magnesium is an essential mineral. Both are nutrients that occur naturally in a variety of foods. Far from being harmful, they are actually beneficial to human health. Vegetable magnesium stearate is mainly made from palm oil and is the standard for tablets. However, it can also be extracted from purified cottonseed oil.

 Magnesium stearate in supplement tablets is used as a "flow agent." This means it prevents different complementary components from sticking to each other as well as mixing and punching equipment. The addition of a flowable agent, such as vegetable-based magnesium stearate, is essential to ensure an even blend of ingredients and a consistent dosage in each capsule or tablet.

 Although supplements contain notorious additives such as vegetable magnesium stearate, they are required and play different key roles in the manufacture of supplements. Not adding magnesium stearate or substitutes may even be harmful to human health, as capsules or tablets may not always contain the prescribed dose.

 The main focus of magnesium stearate was a 1990 study that found that stearic acid suppressed the immune function of T cells in mice. But let's not forget that what differentiates human T cells from mice is their ability to desaturate fatty acids. Human T cells possess the delta-9 desaturase enzyme required to convert stearic acid to oleic acid to avoid toxic accumulation. Another factor to consider is that the study was conducted by soaking mouse T cells in stearic acid. It is impossible to get such large amounts of stearic acid through supplements.

 The second issue behind vegetable magnesium stearate in supplement manufacturing concerns the bioavailability of active ingredients in supplements containing vegetable magnesium stearate. Some people worry that magnesium stearate might inhibit the absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream. It has been found that while magnesium stearate may slow dissolution and absorption in some cases, it does not affect the overall bioavailability of the nutrient.

 Another myth that often worries consumers is that magnesium stearate can form biofilms in the gut, just as soaps containing calcium and magnesium stearate form soap scum in sinks and tubs. Needless to say, the gut environment is nothing like a bathroom. The human gut contains acids and enzymes, so soap scum is not allowed to build up. Soap residue is not like a biofilm. If anything, magnesium stearate actually prevents biofilm formation.

 Finally, some consumers may be concerned about an allergy to magnesium stearate. This may be extremely rare, as magnesium stearate is abundant in a variety of everyday foods. People allergic to it should be more cautious about foods high in magnesium stearate, such as eggs, beef, chicken, and coconut oil.

 Magnesium Stearate Application

Magnesium stearate is used in food, medicine, paint, plastic, rubber, textile and other industries.

Used as emulsifier, mold release agent, lubricant, stabilizer, accelerator, cosmetic base material, etc. Polyvinyl chloride, cellulose acetate, ABS resin, etc. are used in non-toxic products in combination with calcium soap and zinc soap.

Magnesium stearate is used in the tablet and the vegan magnesium stearate in the tablet is used as a "flow agent". This means it prevents different complementary components from sticking to each other as well as mixing and punching equipment. The addition of a flowable agent (such as vegetable magnesium stearate) is essential to ensure that the ingredients are mixed well and that the dosage in each capsule or tablet is consistent.

Although supplements contain notorious additives such as vegetable magnesium stearate, they are required and play different key roles in the manufacture of supplements. Not adding magnesium stearate or substitutes may even be harmful to human health, as capsules or tablets may not always contain the prescribed dose.
