U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the magnesium stearate will also increase.
What is magnesium stearate?
Magnesium stearate is a simple salt composed of two common nutrients, mineral magnesium and saturated fatty stearic acid. It is produced by combining magnesium with stearic acid by high temperature process.
In the production of many nutritional supplements and medicines, it is used as a flow agent, lubricant, binder or anti-caking agent.
Why do supplements have magnesium stearate?
Magnesium stearate is found in many supplements because it makes it easier to use certain ingredients to make them flow more evenly and prevent them and tablets from sticking to the machine during production. The amount used in supplements is very small, usually accounting for less than 1%-less than 20 mg of the total formula. If it is in the product, you will see it in the "other ingredients" section of the supplement label.
Magnesium stearate sources
Stearic acid comes from animal or plant sources.
Vegetarian sources of magnesium stearate include palm oil, coconut oil and vegetable oil.
Would magnesium stearate raise cholesterol levels?
People worry that stearic acid in magnesium stearate will raise cholesterol levels because stearic acid is a kind of saturated fat. This should not be a problem because even normal dietary intake of stearic acid has been shown to have no significant effect on total cholesterol low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels. In addition, the stearic acid content of magnesium stearate in the supplement is very small. According to the USDA nutrition survey, American adults consume an average of 5900 to 8800 milligrams of stearic acid a day, usually from food sources such as beef, poultry, cocoa butter, milk and cheese. A chocolate bar contains about 5000 milligrams of stearic acid. At the same time, the content of stearic acid in magnesium stearate in dietary supplements is generally less than 20 mg.
Would magnesium stearate suppress the immune system?
This seems to be based on laboratory studies of mouse immune cells that show that large amounts of stearic acid can damage the cell membrane of T lymphocytes. However, these laboratory conditions do not mean what happens to you when you eat a normal amount of stearic acid, let alone a smaller amount of magnesium stearate. A small amount of magnesium stearate in supplements is highly unlikely to cause immunosuppression, and this effect has not been reported.
Would magnesium stearate affect nutrition and drug absorption?
Information indicates that although magnesium stearate may affect the dissolution of tablets in some cases, it does not affect the overall bioavailability of drugs or supplements.

Gas supplies have been in short supply because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Combined with the situation that other renewable sources cannot produce enough electricity, electricity prices have soared in many parts all over the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the magnesium stearate would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
