Introduction of product:
It is a sodium carboxymethylcellulose cross-linked internally for use as a super disintegrant in pharmaceutical formulations. Crosslinked sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, used in food as an emulsifier, is E468. Croscarmellose sodium, also known as sodium CMC, is a polymer of carboxymethylcellulose sodium, which is cross-linked. The powder is white, fibrous, freely flowing, and is commonly used in pharmaceuticals as an FDA-approved disintegrant. A disintegrant allows the tablet to break up in the gut following oral administration. Cross-linking increases the bioavailability of a drug through improved dissolution. The amount of active ingredient that is absorbed may be reduced if tablets do not dissolve properly without a disintegrant.
How does it work:
CMC or carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is a major ingredient in pharmaceuticals, and is widely used as a disintegrant in oral pharmaceutical formulations for capsules, tablets, and granules.
Applications Or where it is used:
It is a U.S. FDA-approved pharmaceutical additive commonly used. Food and Drug Administration. Its function in most tablets, including dietary supplements, is to promote rapid digestion of the tablets through the digestive tract.
You cannot experience any "side effects" from croscarmellose sodium unless your body directly reacts to it. It has only been approved for use in small amounts by the Food and Drug Administration. It is not very likely to cause allergies. It can also cause adverse side effects in some, such as dyspepsia, hepatotoxicity, pancreatitis, interstitial nephritis, fever, headache, rash, nausea, vomiting, pneumonitis, pericarditis and so on.
