Overview of Magnesium stearate

What is Magnesium Stearate ?

Magnesium Stearate, also referred to as magnesium octadecanoic a chemical derivative of sodium stearate and magnesium. It is a white, fine substance that does not contain sand. it has a distinct smell and has a slick feeling when it comes into contact with the skin. It is insoluble in water either ethanol or ether and is mainly used as the lubricant, anti-adhesive and glider. It is especially suitable for the preparation of oils and extracts and the granules formulated have exceptional fluidity and strength. Useful as a flow aid for direct compression. It can also be utilized as the aid for filtering, a clarifying agent and foaming agent, in addition to the suspension agent and thickening agent for liquid preparations.

An application area of Magnesium Stearate:

1. Magnesium-stearate is commonly used in medical and health products

Magnesium is a unique alternative material that could be used as a film-forming substance suitable for preparations of solids as a thickener for liquid suspension preparations or suspensions, and other similar applications. Magnesium-stearate is neither toxic nor edible. It is also widely utilized as an additive to healthcare products. It is usually used in the form of a film coating for tablets, as it is able to help allow the health products to be released with precise timings when required as well as lubrication. Active ingredient.

3. Magnesium stearate can be found in food products.

Magnesium stearate is used primarily on pressed food items (tablet candy or milk tablets, nuts chips, dietary fiber tablets, honey tablets, etc. ) which may increase liquidity, antistickiness, and lubricity and also improve its surface. The gloss can make the pressed tablets complete and smooth and needs to be processed in addition.

Also, magnesium stearate is frequently used in coatings, plastics, rubber, textiles, as well as other industrial areas.

It's an excellent lubricant and dispersion stabilizing accessory. It can also be utilized as for a filter aid, clarifying agent, foaming agent, as well as a thickener and suspending agent in preparations for liquids.

Magnesium stearate It is harmful to the human body

Magnesium stearate can be found insoluble in organic solutions and water however it is readily soluble in hot acidic and ethanol. When the body consumes magnesium stearate, magnesium stearate undergoes chemical reactions with gastric acid . This results in magnesium chloride and stearic acid. Magnesium Chloride is soluble water . Therefore, it will be able to flush it out via sweat and urine. Additionally, stearic acid can be absorption and digested by the body. This means that magnesium stearate will not cause harm to human beings.
