What is Magnesium Stearate?

Guotai Junan released a research report saying that under the background of carbon neutrality, the scarcity of coal mines is prominent, and the value of assets will continue to increase. The high point of capital expenditure in the coal industry appeared in 2012. Under the general direction of carbon neutrality, the overall investment in the industry has slowed down, and capital expenditure has gradually declined. From 2021 to now, the Energy Bureau of the National Development and Reform Commission has only newly approved 17.4 million tons of magnesium stearate.

What is Magnesium Stearate?
Magnesium stearate is a salt formed when stearate molecules combine with magnesium ions.
Stearates come from stearic acid which is a long-chain saturated fat found in: 
beef 
chicken 
cocoa butter
coconut oil
egg
milk and dairy products 
palm oil 
salmon 
 
Stearic acid is the only long-chain saturated fat that doesn't raise cholesterol levels, experts say. 
Salt forms the coating you see on medicines and vitamins in powder form. Magnesium stearate may stick to your hands and feel greasy when touched. Many manufacturers of processed foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals also add magnesium stearate to their products.
 
What is magnesium stearate used for? 
Drugs. The company calls magnesium stearate a "fluid agent." Its main job is to prevent the ingredients in the capsule from sticking together. It also creates a barrier between drugs and the machines that make them. The powder improves the consistency and quality of drug capsules. 
Another function of the powder is to slow the absorption and breakdown of the drug. That way, your body absorbs them in the right areas of your gut. Without magnesium stearate, it is difficult to predict the effectiveness, quality, and consistency of drugs.
Cosmetics. Magnesium stearate is a useful ingredient in many cosmetics. It can be used as filler, anti-caking agent, colorant, and so on. Here, it's a low-hazard product, but there are limited data.
 
What does magnesium stearate do to your body? 
Magnesium stearate is usually safe to eat, but too much can have a laxative effect. In large quantities, it irritates the mucus lining of the intestine. This can cause bowel movements or diarrhea.
Immune function. The powder may impair your immune T cell function. Research into this effect is still in its early stages.
Nutrient and drug absorption. There are concerns that magnesium stearate may prevent the body from absorbing nutrients the way it should. One study found that tablets containing magnesium stearate dissolved longer than tablets without magnesium stearate. 
Other studies have found that how long magnesium stearate is dissolved does not affect the drug's effectiveness. It also does not change the dissolution of tablets or the effectiveness of supplements or drugs. 
Biofilms. There are also concerns that magnesium stearate can lead to the formation of harmful biofilms in the digestive system. Biofilms occur when groups of bacteria form a protective barrier. These claims come from the fact that soap contains magnesium stearate and forms a scum film. But your gut wall, unlike your bathroom wall or door, doesn't have the same scum film. 
 
What is the source of magnesium stearate? 
Stearic acid comes from animal or plant sources. 
Vegetarian sources of magnesium stearate include palm oil, coconut oil, and vegetable oil. 
PURE LAB VITAMINS uses "plant-based" as a source of magnesium stearate. 
 
Is magnesium stearate from a vegetable source safe? 
In general, vegetable magnesium stearate is safe to use and eat. But if you take too much of it, studies show it has a laxative effect. 
 
What is stearic acid? 
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid found in many foods, including animal and plant fats and oils. Cocoa and flaxseed are examples of foods that contain high levels of stearic acid. 
 
What effect does stearic acid have on the body? 
Stearic acid can be found in foods such as chicken, eggs, cheese, chocolate, walnuts, salmon, and coconut oil. Stearic acid acts as a lubricant for filling capsules when dry powder ingredients have problems such as density, viscosity, and fluidity under pressure. 
According to NCBI, stearic acid lowers LDL cholesterol compared to other saturated fatty acids. It may also slightly lower the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol compared to other fatty acids.
