For over 25 years, Bio Minerals NV has invested in clinical research to support the body's powerful natural mechanisms for producing and protecting three key proteins: collagen, elastin, and keratin. We work with the processes and nutrients of human physiology, rather than introducing foreign products. Your body knows how to repair and rejuvenate itself, and our patented compound ch-OSA®activates and nourishes that ability, so you can feel and look your best.†
A medical microbiologist at the University of Antwerp discovered that choline is the ideal partner for stabilizing orthosilicic acid for optimal biological activity in the human body.
Bio Minerals NV was founded to develop choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA®) for use in dietary supplements, and further explore the potential health benefits of the complex.
