I bought this product thinking that it had only aloe vera phytogel in a gelatin capsule, and nothing else. It turned out to have magnesium stearate included. After researching m. s., a highly refined trans type fat used to make the factory machinery work better, I have decided to avoid purchasing any vitamin products containing stearates, or those which use an alternative name for stearates, such as 'vegetable emulsifiers.' iherb would do well to purchase products from companies like Pure Encapsulations. Also, you can check organicpharmacy.org's list of brands that they recommend. Some of them include stearates, while other's don't. Thank you.
