Only active, pure ingredients go into all our complexes.
Backed by what science has to offer and a great manufacturer right here in the UK, we only use the most bioavailable forms of vitamins, minerals and botanicals.
Free from Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Flavourings, Coating agents, Glycerin, waxing agents, Palm Oil, Gelatin or any other animal products.
You must have seen the above additives in so many of your previous supplements.
These excipients are the ingredients commonly found in typical products.
These are not added for health reasons, but only to make the manufacturing process cheaper, lubricate machines or unnecessarily fill capsules!
So why do we make capsules only and never tablets?
Consumers are now very savvy, and they don’t like the mention of additives or synthetic excipients.
There are no natural excipients by the way, they are all chemicals.
Let’s first talk about, what’s a tablet and what’s a capsule.
A tablet is a solid, flat pill.
A capsule is a cylindrical-shaped shell that you can split open and this is what we use.
Without a doubt, tablets, AND gummies by the way, contain additives.
When we say additives, we mean any ingredient that does not provide benefits to your body, that you didn’t mean to pay for.
Active ingredients come in powder form and to get that compressed, glued-together shape of a tablet, manufacturers have to add bulking agents like maltodextrin to bind and seal the formula, to basically stick all the powdery ingredients together.
Something like silicon dioxide is an anti-caking agent to avoid clumping powders.
Why do manufacturers use magnesium stearate? to coat the ingredients so they flow smoothly through the machines without sticking.
That way, machines don’t jam up which increases the speed of production and maximizes profits.
So making tablets requires glue, binders, fillers and coating.
BUT... with a capsule, we simply fill it with just the active ingredients and we don’t have to add anything else.
I have to add that even capsules can sometimes contain flowing agents because if the capsule is not totally full, ingredients will sink at the bottom and consumers will think that there’s something wrong, so to avoid this assumption, some factories add flowing agents to make the ingredients flow inside the capsule.
This is something we never do because we always fill the capsule to the brim!
We at Dietapplements believe that consumers have the right to know exactly what they’re putting in their bodies.
For that, we have a zero-compromise approach to clean-label and we pride ourselves on formulas made with capsules with ZERO additives.
We absolutely don't compromise with quality or purity. No risky additives. While most products contain nasty bulking agents and fillers, our formula works for you, not against you.
