Vegetable Capsule (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose)
Stearic Acid (vegetable)
Stearic acid is a waxy oil fraction that acts as a lubricant to fill capsules present in many foods in far greater quantities than in our supplements and is both safe and natural.
Silicon dioxide is found naturally in many plants, such as leafy green vegetables, beets, bell peppers, brown rice, and oats.
Silicon dioxide is also added to many foods and supplements. As a food additive, it serves as an anti-caking agent to prevent clumping. In supplements, it’s used to prevent powdered ingredients from sticking together.
As with many food additives, consumers often have concerns about silicon dioxide as an additive. However, numerous studies suggest there’s no cause for these concerns.
Magnesium stearate is a fine white powder that sticks to your skin and is greasy to the touch. It’s a simple salt made up of two substances, a saturated fat called stearic acid and the mineral magnesium. Stearic acid can also be found in many foods, such as chicken, eggs, cheese, chocolate, walnuts, salmon, cottonseed oil, palm oil, and coconut oil.
Magnesium stearate is commonly added to many foods, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. In medications and vitamins, its primary purpose is to act as a lubricant.
