Overview of Magnesium stearate

What exactly is Magnesium Stearate ?

Magnesium , also known as magnesium octadecanoic a metal derivative synthesized from sodium stearate and magnesium. It is a white, fine powder that is free of sand. it has a distinctive smell; it has a slippery sensation when it comes in contact with skin. This powder is insoluble in water and ether or ethanol, and is mostly used as an anti-adhesive lubricant and glider. It is ideal for the preparation of oils and extracts and the granules that are prepared possess excellent fluidity and compressibility. It is used as a flow aid for direct compression. It can also be utilized as filters, a clarifying agent, as well as a foaming agent, in addition to an agent for suspending and as a thickening agent for liquid preparations.

Aspects for application of Magnesium stearate:

1. Magnesium Stearate is used in healthcare and pharmaceutical products

3. Magnesium stearate can be found in food

Magnesium Stearate is mostly used for pressed foods (tablet candy dairy tablets, nut chips as well as dietary fibre tablets, honey tablets and so on. ) which may increase liquidity, anti-stickiness, and lubricity of the material as well as enhance how the tablet's surface appears. The gloss makes the pressed tablets smooth and complete, and needs to be processed in addition.

Also, magnesium Stearate is also widely used in coatings, plastics, rubber, textiles, as well as other industrial areas.

Magnesium Stearate It is harmful for the human body

Magnesium stearate can be found insoluble in water and organic solutions but is soluble in hot acidic ethanol and. When the body ingests magnesium Stearate, magnesium has a chemical reaction that reacts to gastric acid to form magnesium chloride and stearic acid. Magnesium chloride dissolves in the water and can be excreted by sweat and urine. Moreover, it is absorb by the body. Therefore, magnesium is a good choice to not cause any harm to the human body.
