Comment on Is this potentially harmful substance lurking in YOUR nutritional supplements? by Anon.
Most supplement companies use plant-derived magnesium stearate so not sure what you’re talking about when you say “synethetic magnesium stearate”. It’s literally the same thing that’s in a ton of foods already, only it’s like less than 1mg per capsule whereas it’s 1000mg+ in certain foods.
The overwhelming evidence suggests it’s completely safe. The only parties who try to tell us magnesium stearate is harmful are the companies who sell supplements without magnesium stearate. It’s a marketing ploy.
