Is ook niet heel ernstig hoor, no worries! In feite is magnesiumstearaat gewoon krijt. Als je het maar niet te veel binnen krijgt, dus onderzoek ik waar ik het kan vermijden. Maar het zit in veel supplementen als anti-klonter en glansmiddel valt me op.

Dit is wat Mercola schreef, tegelijkertijd merkt hij terecht op dat we beter volwaardige voeding kunnen eten dan dagelijks een handvol supplementen te nemen:

In the U.S., many supplement makers add so-called ‘flowing agents’ into their capsules. Two common additives are:

– Magnesium stearate

– Titanium dioxide

Now, neither of these will cause any major harm in small doses. But they do add up over time, and magnesium stearate can cause a biofilm to be created in your intestine, which will prevent the absorption of nutrients. The only purpose of it in the supplement is to help the raw materials become more slippery and easily flow through the machines that create the supplements.

Magnesium stearate is not a supplemental source of magnesium but rather a form of stearic acid. It’s essentially chalk, and previous research has shown that it suppresses your natural killer cells, which are a key component of your immune system. Unfortunately, this chalk filler stimulates your gut to form a biofilm – a sort of sludge lining – that acts as an effective barrier to the absorption of not only that particular vitamin but all the nutrients you’d normally get from food sources as well. This is a major reason for focusing on nutritional foods rather than taking handfuls of vitamins each day.

Fortunately, once I became aware of this issue, I was able to get my personal brand multi-vitamins reformulated, so they do not contain magnesium stearate any longer. Titanium dioxide is another absolutely unnecessary color agent you don’t want to see in your supplements, as it has been shown to cause autoimmune disorders.
