I’ve been asked before if some of the ingredients in CanXida such as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), dicalcium phosphate and magnesium stearate can be removed or replaced by alternative ingredients.
My answer is that they could but there is no point. To explain further about the excipient (inactive) ingredients in CanXida, dicalcium phosphate is very commonly used in the production of all sorts of dietary supplements. Basically, it’s an odor remover so it sanitizes the product and gives the container a nice, fresh smell. It is not going to cause you any harm. Chances are that you already eat some dicalcium phosphate in the foods that you eat. It is interesting to me that people will get so concerned about excipients but won’t think twice about being on their mobile phones for ½ an hour at a time. They aren’t bothered by the fumes from their car as they drive with the windows closed. Other people will readily drink water with fluoride and chlorine in it, or down a can of soda pop, but then get worried about magnesium stearate. To me, it’s a matter of focusing on tiny details while missing the bigger picture. My suggestion is to not get preoccupied with a few ingredients in a supplement.
With regards to magnesium stearate, there has been a lot of misinformation about this ingredient. It is not true that magnesium stearate is toxic or indigestible. Magnesium stearate is stearic acid, a fat commonly found in coconut oil. It’s also found in chocolate and cocoa. It’s found in many different meats like beef and chicken. It’s likely that you already have magnesium stearate in your diet. Magnesium stearate helps to hold a tablet together. A normal healthy person will have no problems breaking down this long-chain fatty acid. However, if you have serious hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer or pancreatic cancer, or if you drink a lot of alcohol, you may have a problem with magnesium stearate.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is also very harmless. HPMC is a plant fiber, usually derived from pine trees, that is easily broken down in the gut. We use HPMC to make sure the CanXida products don’t break down too quickly in the body. In other words, HPMC sustains the delivery of the CanXida product.
CanXida has been used by many people and there have been no reported deaths or suicides. I am confident that all the ingredients in the CanXida range of products are safe.
