So, what is magnesium trisilicate?

Magnesium trisilicate is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder with a chemical formula of Mg2Si3O8. It is commonly used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid, alleviate heartburn, and treat indigestion. Magnesium trisilicate works by raising the pH level in the stomach, reducing the acidity that causes discomfort. It is also used in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics due to its absorbent properties. However, excessive use of magnesium trisilicate may lead to unwanted side effects such as diarrhea and constipation. Therefore, it should be consumed only under medical supervision.
