"Magnesium Silicate" - what's that all about? Oct. Fri 13th


Okay . . . so we spoke about "magnesium stearate" the other day . . .


But . . . what's up with the "magnesium silicate" that's in our supplements???


Well . . . "magnesium silicate" is just a fancy name for . . . "talc" . . . or . . . "talcum powder".


And as we know . . . "talc" . . . is connected to an increased risk of . . .

Ovarian cancer

Lung cancer

And Endometrial cancer


And in a large enough dose . . . "magnesium silicate" and its "carcinogenic" affects can also lead to "stomach cancer"


Okay . . . so "talc" . . . or "talcum powder" . . . is a clay mineral composed of "hydrated "magnesium silicate".


Meaning . . . when "magnesium silicate" is "hydrated it's known as "talc".


And this "talc" in the pharmaceutical industry . . . is primarily used as a "glidant" to improve powder "flow" in tablet compression.


This means . . . "talc" or "magnesium silicate" . . . is added to our supplements to "prevent" ingredients from clumping and sticking to machinery when forming the tablets.


And when "talc" is added to our food . . . it's generally recognized as safe by . . .


You guessed it . . . the FDA . . .


Now . . . another issue with "talc" is this . . . many times "talc" contains the known "carcinogen" called . . . "ASBESTOS".


So . . . HOW CAN ANY OF THIS BE GOOD FOR US???


READ YOUR LABELS PEOPLE!!!!


NOTE TO REMEMBER . . . even though you've bought a "compliant, clean" supplement in the past . . . READ the label EVERY TIME you purchase that supplement . . .


Why you ask???


Well . . . manufacturers are changing their "OTHER INGREDIENTS" all the time for the bottom line of making more money . . .


SO WHAT MAY HAVE BEEN "COMPLIANT" YESTERDAY . . . MAY "NOT" BE TODAY.


Stay safe on this Friday the 13th


And next week, I'll give you an update on my Halloween Spooktacular decorations AND continue with some more devastating supplements
