You may have heard the terms "filler," "binder" or "flow agent" and perhaps even been cautioned against them. However, these are important agents to supplement manufacturing as they produce quality products in an effective manner. Here's what they really are.

Hear from Shane Durkee, Chief Innovation Officer at Swanson Health Products, about why we use magnesium stearate in some of our supplements.
Despite rumors that the dietary supplement industry is unregulated, we do comply with both FDA and FTC standards. These ensure that consumers can trust the label information and safety of all our products.
