Safety & Efficacy
Although Biolane® is extracted from a widely consumed seafood it has been subjected to both toxicity and teratogenic studies to confirm its safety for general consumption. These studies were conducted to the standard protocol for pharmaceutical products. Such a high degree of quality control is put into the manufacturing process to ensure that every capsule of Biolane® – Active Green Lipped Mussel Extract (GLME) is not only safe but efficacious too.
Routine monitoring of the mussel farm waters, the mussels and the processing of the extract ensures that every batch of the product is free from environmentally induced pathogenic contaminants.
In addition, the product has been used extensively for over 30 years without any reports of significant adverse events.
