BIO-CHELATION PROCESS

BioBotanical’s extracts are processed using a proprietary Bio-Chelated® extraction method which produces a Holistically Balanced™ standardized extract, which means that extracts retain as many of the natural constituents and their relative proportions as the original plant has in nature. This ‘holistic authentication™’ expands upon tradition to capture the entire phytochemical spectrum of a plant. We obtain a ‘botanical fingerprint’ using state of the art LC/MS-MS along with other proprietary analytical techniques. The data is analyzed using advanced chemometric approaches which can detect minor deviations from the natural balance.
