Magnesium stearate uses in tablets:
Magnesium stearate vegan
in tablets is used as a "flow agent". This means that it can prevent different complementary components from adhering to each other as well as mixing and punching equipment. The addition of mobile agents (such as vegetable magnesium stearate) is essential to ensure that the ingredients are evenly mixed and the dose in each capsule or tablet is consistent.

Although supplements contain disreputable additives such as vegetable magnesium stearate, they are necessary and play different key roles in the manufacture of supplements. Not adding magnesium stearate or substitutes may even be harmful to human health because capsules or tablets may not always contain the prescribed dose.
