I am a bit concerned with the silicon dioxide. Where did it derive from (it mentioned in the ingredients that the stearic acid is derived from vegetable sources, but not for this ingredient)? How much % of silicon dioxide does this product contain? Is it safe for the human body?

I take these tablets and I agree.....why does silicon dioxide need to be on the ingredient list?? Silicon Dioxide is a proven carcinogen and studies have proven that it can cause severe respiratory disorders....do these manufacturers not research their ingredients?? Why put a carcinogen into a natural or herbal product?? The reason for Silicon Dioxide's use, is for it's anti-caking properties, so why not use something natural like corn starch???

Hi, I'm not a nutritionist so would recommend asking your doctor for input. I just know it works for me.
