Avoiding excipients

Avoiding  excipients

When deciding on the composition of your product, please keep in mind that recent marketing research (Health Focus International) shows that consumers like simple ingredient lists that only contain ingredients they understand. We have invested in specialized equipment to make supplements without manufacturing agents. After mixing the raw materials we decide on which unique encapsulation machine we will use. This depends on how easily the mixed raw material flows. Powders that are not free flowing go on a slow auger driven encapsulation machine. Free flowing powders go on a higher speed machine.

More and more label owners want to accommodate their potential customers that feel excipients compromise the quality, absorption, and integrity of supplements, and have come to us because they know of our core competency in manufacturing without excipients. This indeed has been the foundation of our business since 1993 and is the reason we have developed methods that allow us to manufacture without binders, release agents, flow agents, and the like.

“Other Ingredients” often contain ingredients people don’t understand fully: Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium, Polyethylene Glycol, Croscarmellose Sodium.. Those are all ingredients that many people DISLIKE.
