Magnesium Stearate Free Encapsulation Process

AgeImmune is partnering with a certified GMP laboratory in New Brunswick, NJ to offer flow-agents and

lubricants free supplements to its customers.

According to recent reports, the demand for supplements free of flow agents and lubricants is on the

rise. The reason behind this boils down to the high incidence of digestive problems of unknown origin

and other vague symptoms after taking supplements with magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide. This

rise of demand is constant despite the relatively higher price of flow agent-free supplements compared

to conventional products. It is important to note that some of these side effects are only significant

when consumption exceeds certain amounts; however, since these flow agents are used as a part of

processed foods, the overall consumption might be larger than we think.

Together with its encapsulation partners AgeImmune has worked out a strategy to offer clean

supplements at affordable pricing. Traditionally, the speed of encapsulating is higher when flow agents

are present, thus laboratories prefer to use them. But Ageimmune is proud to announce that the

company has found partners that share the vision and are willing to work on creating vitamins and

supplements that contain no magnesium stearate or silica.

“Specific challenge lies in encapsulation of herbs like turmeric, boswellia or berberine,” says Natalie

Weinberg, the owner of Age Immune LLC and AgeImmune brand, “the raw material is extremely sticky

and thick, and laboratories must stop the encapsulation process to clean the machinery rather often.

This adds time and cost of manpower to the manufacturing process.”

AgeImmune interviewed multiple labs before they found the one that was able to work on company’s

specific terms. “Together we are very proud to offer products of a rare kind that contain no ingredients

that have nothing to do with supplementation. We are offering berberine with inulin for better

absorption, one of the cleanest products on the market, as well as turmeric and boswellia complex with

black pepper. Both formulas are a challenge to encapsulate. But why offer just another herbal

supplement with magnesium stearate to the already saturated market of supplements when there is a

possibility of inception of a clean encapsulation practice and positioning AgeImmune Brand as a

magnesium stearate free brand,” Weinberg continues.

When asked about supply chain difficulties, Natalie admits a challenge however confirms that the

company has not raised prices and is planning to keep them stable at least this year.
