Pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide

Pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide is a high purity magnesium hydroxide that is specifically used in the pharmaceutical field. It has strict production and quality control standards to ensure that the product contains very low levels of heavy metals and other impurities, and is often required to meet specific pharmaceutical standards, such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards. The main features and applications of pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide include:


1. Composition and purity: with a molecular formula of Mg(OH)2 and a molecular weight of 58.32, it exhibits a white crystal or powder form with an alkaline aqueous solution. Its purity is very high, ensuring safety and efficacy in medical use.

2. Antacid effect: In medicine, magnesium hydroxide, as an antacid and laxative, can neutralize gastric acid and reduce symptoms caused by excessive stomach acid, such as stomach pain, heartburn and acid reflux, and at the same time, it has a protective effect on the gastric mucosa.

3. Low impurity content: Heavy metals and other impurities that may affect the safety of medicines are removed through a special process, making it suitable for human intake.

4. Multi-field application: besides being used directly as drugs, pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide is also used as neutralizer, heavy metal adsorbent, anti-caking agent, filtering aid, desulfurization agent, etc. in the process of biopharmaceuticals, as well as a stabilizer or auxiliary material in the preparation of drugs.

5. Quality standard: Follow the State Drug Administration or other international pharmaceutical standards (such as WS1-XG-2002) to ensure that the product meets the requirements of pharmaceutical grade.

6. Manufacturers: There are many companies in the market that produce pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide, such as Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. which will provide products that meet the pharmaceutical standards, and can provide detailed specifications and test reports upon customer request.

In summary, pharmaceutical grade magnesium hydroxide is a high purity product manufactured under strict control and designed to meet the high standards required by the pharmaceutical industry to ensure its safety and efficacy in therapeutic and pharmaceutical processes.
