We believe in results
At Bio Minerals NV, we want to create the world's most effective anti-aging supplement. We see results in the lab, validate results in human clinical trials, and you see results in real life.
Bio Minerals NV is, at our core, a research and development company. We spend our time investigating new molecules and complexes, and investing in pre-clinical and clinical trials.
We're guided by our customers.
The people who use BioSil® are the ones who inspire our research and innovation. Customer feedback is what helps us develop new galenics, formulations, and indications.
We're a cGMP production company.
Bio Minerals is one of a very small number of dietary supplement companies that manufacture all of our active ingredients and products in-house. That means we control all aspects of production and can offer complete assurance of the highest quality.
We take care of our community.
Bio Minerals is the largest employer in our hometown of Destelbergen, Belgium. We've implemented solar power, water conservation, and youth mentorship initiatives at our facilities. To help meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we manufactured and distributed hand sanitizer to our local schools, fire stations, and hospitals.
We work with internationally renowned universities and specialized private labs to research new directions for our products.
QUALITY CONTROL LABS
Our expert analysts check raw materials and outgoing product for purity and potency. We validate our manufacturing practices (cGMP) with our laboratory practices (cGLP) all down the line.
