As you can see illustrated in the diagram to the right, using OrganiFlow™ eliminates the following artificial excipients:
- Magnesium Stearate
- Silicon Dioxide
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Stearic Acid
- Dicalcium Phosphate
Consumers are trending to be much more aware of nutrition & supplement facts. There is no more need for these potentially harmful artificial ingredients.
What is the Purpose of Excipients?
Excipients have many functions in nutraceutical manufacturing processes. Without them, a supplement cannot be produced.
Most people don’t realize that ingesting artificial excipients can potentially be harmful to consumers
Excipients are used ubiquitously in the majority of the solid dosage formulations to improve the formulation processability.
Flow agents are used to reducing the interparticle friction, allowing powders to flow through the rotary hoppers. Reducing the die wall friction.
Artificial Excipients allow mixing of various ingredients to be possible
These are considered to be “flow agents”.Flow agents prevent powders from clumping up and sticking together.
Without flow agents, the proportions would not be correct when producing a supplement or vitamin.
Artificial Excipients act as a filler in capsules
Fillers are mainly used to increase the look appeal of a capsule.
Consumers believe that they are getting a better product if it is full.
Artificial Excipients create a custom color for the formula
Consumers might want a pure white filler or a yellow filler depending on what the supplement is directed to achieve.
Artificial excipients are used to give a supplement a color.
Are There Any Substitutes To Artificial Excipients?
Ingredient Evolution has identified this potentially harmful ingredient that millions of people are ingesting in their body every day. We made it a mission goal to remove the need for magnesium stearate and other harmful artificial excipients in the production of supplements and vitamins.
Our team of scientists discovered a brilliant solution through in-depth research. We have created the first all organic excipient, capable of replacing all artificial excipients.
First, we take a proprietary blend of organic brown rice and grind it into a fine powder. Then through an extensive 3 step conduction oven drying process. We achieved in creating the first all organic excipient.
Whether or not you believe artificial excipients are harmful to consumers or not, there is no reason to take that risk when there is an all organic excipient replacement.
Realistically if a brand has magnesium stearate, stearic acid, dicalcium phosphate, or silicon dioxide they don’t have any real concern for your health or well-being. They decided to take the cheap route and make their pockets heavier with no consideration how this will affect their customers in any way.
Dried organic brown rice powder is superior to artificial excipients because it performs all necessary functions and has zero side effects. It can be used as a flow agent which prevents clumping, sticking, and enables the supplement to have a smooth and fast manufacturing process.
What are the Most Common Artificial Excipients?
How Are They Potentially Harmful To Ingest?
Magnesium Stearate / Steric Acid:
Magnesium stearate is synthesized mainly from genetically modified (GMO) plant sources for nutraceutical manufacturing. Coming from:
- Cottonseed oil – A high-risk genetically modified crop and one of the heaviest residual pesticide sprayed crop.
- Canola oil – Known as rapeseed oil, also from a high-risk genetically modified crop.
- Palm oil – Palm oil contains Palmitic Acid, a saturated fatty acid the World Health Organization has identified as a significant contributor to cardiovascular disease.
Poor Absorption Of Nutrients
A major concern of mixing magnesium stearate with vitamins is reduced nutrient absorption. This is especially concerning because consumers purchase supplements & vitamins strictly to absorb those nutrients. A study conducted in 2007 showed that tablets with magnesium stearate dissolved slower than ones without magnesium stearate after being placed in gastric juices. (1)
Suppression Of Immune System
There is evidence that ingesting magnesium stearate weakens your immune system. A study conducted in 1990 shows evidence that T cells absorb the magnesium stearate into their cell membranes before eventually killing the T cells. Your T cells are a primary factor in your immune system. (2)
Pesticides & Contamination From Manufacturing
A report was done in 2011 by the World Health Organization that batches of magnesium stearate became contaminated with several toxic chemicals. These chemicals included bisphenol A, calcium hydroxide, dibenzoyl methane, Irganox 1010 and zeolite (sodium aluminum silicate) (5)
A study in 2012 reported that a 28-year-old woman had a severe allergic reaction to magnesium stearate. The woman broke out in hives. (6)
Many people also reported on Treato.com that they believe their hives breakout was caused by magnesium stearate. (7)
According to Material Safety Data Sheet, skin contact to dicalcium phosphate may lead to a dry or chapped skin. (8)
According to Material Safety Data Sheet, people with allergic reactions to dicalcium phosphate develop dermatitis, an allergic reaction that causes redness, swelling or itching on skin areas that came in direct contact with the irritating substance. In severe cases, the allergic reaction spread to areas of the skin that weren’t in direct contact with the skin. (8)
Negative Inhalation Effects
According to Material Safety Data Sheet, inhalation of dicalcium phosphate powder dust can irritate lungs & nasal passages. Leading to chronic coughing and sneezing. (8)
Negative Gastrointestinal Effects
Evidence gathered from the National Library of Medication & National Institutes of Health showed that high levels could upset the gastrointestinal system. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach pain, thirst, dry mouth, and increased urination. (9)
Worsening of Pre-Existing Conditions
Evidence gathered from the National Library of Medication & National Institutes of Health showed ingestion of dicalcium phosphate can increase the severity of people with problems like diarrhea, parathyroid disease, lung disease, kidney stones, & other stomach related problems. People who have any of these problems should consult a physician before taking a supplement with dicalcium phosphate. (9)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency placed silicon dioxide in Toxicity Category III
Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling tiny bits of silica over a period of time.
Increased Risk of Chronic Kidney Disease
A 2012 study published in the journal Renal Failure found a connection between silica exposure and chronic kidney disease. (10)
