Magnesium Sterate and Steric Acid are used as a flow agent when companies put powders into capsules, and also in making solid tablets. Magnesium Sterate and Steric Acid are bad for us, but the big companies pretend that the "badness" is negligible,..."so small or unimportant as to be not worth considering; insignificant." They are lying. They can run their machines faster by using Magnesium Sterate or Steric Acid. This helps them make more more money than they could make by running their machines slower and/or using other, harmless ingredients (such as possibly rice hulls in filling capsules). ribus.com/nu-flow/
Since we SCI people are already fighting for our lives, the last thing we need is to be fed "supplemens" that contain Magnesium Sterate or Steric Acid. I am going through my supplements one by one and throwing away the ones with these contaminants. My life is too precious to waste on overcoming these anti-life ingredients. Such greed and disregard for human life on the part of the makers of these so-called "health products"! Please read the labels before buying your next vitamins, herbs, or other supplements.
