Our Position on Stearic Acid & Magnesium Stearate

Ultra Laboratories is absolutely committed to making products that are the highest quality that we are able to produce; it is with this philosophy in mind that we have chosen to ONLY put “active” ingredients in our products with NO fillers, NO binders, NO lubricants, NO flow agents and NO disintegrants – these ingredients are not in the products for YOUR benefit! One of the primary reasons that we have chosen to do this is because stearic acid (one of the two major components found in magnesium stearate) has been shown in preliminary in vitro studies to inhibit T-cell function. In addition, magnesium stearate has been shown to cause allergic symptomology in certain individuals.
