Benefits of PRL Products

Excipient-Free

 

What Are Excipients?

Excipients are binders, fillers and “glues” that are typically non-nutritive substances in nutritional products.

 

Would you want to consume anything that is not nutritive?

We believe it is unnecessary to take nutritional products 
that have questionable, potentially harmful, non-nutritive excipients.

 

Please note: Tablets ALWAYS contain excipients (that is how they are made; they cannot be made without them); therefore, we believe the best choice is to avoid nutritional products as tablets.

 

Just a few examples of questionable excipients
commonly found in nutritional products
:

 

Magnesium stearate – a cheap lubricating agent; research shows it to be immune-compromising

Methyl paraben – a benzoate family member; a known cancer-causing agent

Microcrystalline cellulose – a cheap filler

Silicon dioxide – a cheap flowing agent (common sand)

Methacrylic copolymer – methacrylic acid, a component of the methacrylic acid copolymer

Triethyl citrate – a plasticizer

Titanium dioxide – used for color

Corn starch – typically made from cheap genetically modified corn; can invoke allergic responses

Talcum powder – a common excipient rarely listed on product labels; a suspected carcinogen
