The excipients or inert ingredients listed in the Other ingredients is common to almost all tablets and caplets that are manufactured in both the dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries. Any tablet that is made from a powder to be compacted, even if its a whole food organic plant-based supplement, it still uses those ingredients to bind the tablet and also prevent the tablet from breaking apart in the manufacturing process. This is so the tablet can slide down the machines into bottles and not break into powder when you open the bottle and place it in your hands. Thus, when you look at all of the supplement markets, tablets/caplets are all made using these “inert” ingredients. That is how tablets/caplets are manufactured. Unfortunately, most companies white label (private label) products so they do not know anything about manufacturing and only provide information that is given by sales reps and marketers. Any company that claims tablets and/or caplets do not use those or other types of ingredients to do so for making them is not telling you the truth.
Inert ingredients are used in all manufacturing of tablets/caplets of supplements and pharmaceutical drugs. Being an inert ingredient basically means that it has come in contact with the caplet (i.e. sliding down a machine), but cannot be measured since it is so small and not a major or minor ingredient. Many people, unfortunately, think that just because something is wildcrafted, organic, and Non-GMO doesn’t use such ingredients to make a tablet/caplet but they do – it just has not been disclosed to consumers.
