I read the info on Magnesium Stearate not long ago, and FINALLY felt like I got the real info on what it's about!! WOW. I do have a question for Dr. Ben, though:
Is vegetable magnesium stearate the same animal as the synthetic form, please? It seems there may be a difference, but I'm not sure. I would love to know, if possible...
Great to hear you are receiving great assistance and products from www.HealthEGoods.com – always great to hear ;)
Regarding vegetable stearates, there are various forms of magnesium stearates, which are:
- Magnesium stearate
- Vegetable stearate
- Stearic acid
- Potentially others
The stearates and stearic acid encircle the powdered nutrients allowing them to slide.
To me, the issue is that magnesium stearate, in any of its forms, is used simply to lubricate the manufacturer’s machines. A fat is a fat is a fat. Magnesium stearate = vegetable stearate = stearic acid.
Magnesium stearate, again, in any form, is a fat and may potentially impede absorption of the nutrien...
