Anxietin - Ingredients
- Copovidone is used as a tablet binder in controlled-release formulas, and crospovidone is used to improve absorption of active ingredients. Copovidone and crospovidone are both generally derived from a process starting with an organic compound called “butyrolactone,” which has been found naturally occurring in some varieties of wine. FDA-approved as inactive ingredients, they are considered non-toxic and simply pass through the body when taken orally.
- Silicon Dioxide – also known as silica – is most commonly found in quartz crystal and sand. It is a common ingredient in food production where it is used to prevent caking, and in pill manufacture where it is used to aid consistent powder flow in processing machines. It is also the primary component in diatomaceous earth – a powder which is sometimes used as a supplement.
- Sorbitol is a type of sugar alcohol which the human body metabolizes slowly. It occurs naturally in many stone fruits.
I have issues with lactose – can I still take Anxietin? Anxietin utilizes lactose for its naturally superior tableting properties. If you are able to tolerate very small amounts of lactose (under 0.18 grams per tablet), you are unlikely to have any lactose-related effects due to as-directed use of Anxietin.
What is Magnesium Stearate? Magnesium stearate is a combination of the mineral magnesium and stearate, the salt of stearic acid (a type of fatty acid). Magnesium stearate is commonly used to prevent ingredients from sticking to equipment in the manufacture of medicinal tablets, capsules, and powders; but it is also used frequently as an ingredient in hard candies, mints, and baby formula. Magnesium stearate received a “GRAS” (generally recognized as safe) rating with the US FDA.
What is Mannitol? Mannitol is a type of sugar alcohol commonly used as a diabetic sweetener because of its sweet taste and low glycemic index.
What is Microcrystalline Cellulose? Microcrystalline cellulose is a refined plant-based fiber used to help stabilize the tablet formula.
