What is the Purpose of Excipients?
Excipients have many functions in nutraceutical manufacturing processes. Without them, a supplement cannot be produced.
Most people don’t realize that ingesting artificial excipients can potentially be harmful to consumers
Excipients are used ubiquitously in the majority of the solid dosage formulations to improve the formulation processability.
Flow agents are used to reducing the interparticle friction, allowing powders to flow through the rotary hoppers. Reducing the die wall friction.
Artificial Excipients allow mixing of various ingredients to be possible
These are considered to be “flow agents”. Flow agents prevent powders from clumping up and sticking together.
Without flow agents, the proportions would not be correct when producing a supplement or vitamin.
Artificial Excipients act as a filler in capsules
Fillers are mainly used to increase the look appeal of a capsule.
Consumers believe that they are getting a better product if it is full.
Artificial Excipients create a custom color for the formula
Consumers might want a pure white filler or a yellow filler depending on what the supplement is directed to achieve.
Artificial excipients are used to give a supplement a color.
Are There Any Substitutes To Artificial Excipients?
ABH Pharma has identified this potentially harmful ingredient that millions of people are ingesting in their body every day. We made it a mission goal to remove the need for magnesium stearate and other harmful artificial excipients in the production of supplements and vitamins.
Our team of scientists discovered a brilliant solution through in-depth research. We have created the first all organic excipient, capable of replacing all artificial excipients. This allows products to be completely all organic using an organic flow agent.
First, we take a proprietary blend of organic brown rice and grind it into a fine powder. Then through an extensive 3 step conduction oven drying process. We achieved in creating the first all organic excipient.
Whether or not you believe artificial excipients are harmful to consumers or not, there is no reason to take that risk when there is an all organic excipient replacement.
Realistically if a brand has magnesium stearate, stearic acid, dicalcium phosphate, or silicon dioxide they don’t have any real concern for your health or well-being. They decided to take the cheap route and make their pockets heavier with no consideration how this will affect their customers in any way.
Dried organic brown rice powder is superior to artificial excipients because it performs all necessary functions and has zero side effects. It can be used as a flow agent which prevents clumping, sticking, and enables the supplement to have a smooth and fast manufacturing process.
As you can see illustrated in the diagram below, using OrganiFlow™ eliminates the following artificial excipients:
- Magnesium Stearate
- Silicon Dioxide
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Stearic Acid
- Dicalcium Phosphate
Consumers are trending to be much more aware of nutrition & supplement facts. There is no more need for these potentially harmful artificial ingredients.
