Pharma & Nutraceutical Applications for NutrapHix by Garrison Minerals


NutrapHix Logo

including Personal Hygiene

Since the historical introduction of magnesium as an elemental compound, it has been used for medicinal and pharmaceutical applications.  With the discovery of magnesium hydroxide in the early nineteenth century, Mg(OH)2 has continued to be used in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and more recently, personal hygiene applications. 


An ultra-pure Mg(OH)2 with purity standards that meet requirements for the FCC and USP, as well as the EU directives, are required for pharma, nutraceutical, and personal hygiene applications.  These include antacids and laxatives, as well as food additives and dietary supplements. The FDA determined that Mg(OH)2 is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS)  in the Code of Federal Regulations for human consumption and absorption.  As always, this is per product guidelines, and always under the supervision of one’s health care provider.


The ever-growing personal hygiene market has made magnesium hydroxide a popular alternative in natural deodorants, replacing allegedly harmful aluminum and irritating baking soda, to help rid the skin of odors without penetrating the dermis or clogging pores and sweat ducts.  

The team at Garrison Minerals continues to serve on the front lines of this innovative work with this unique solution.
