HEAVY METAL FREE

GLIACINTM IS HEAVY METAL FREE (<0.01 mcg)- Heavy metal toxicity is a real concern when it comes to the use of herbal preparations. A recent Harvard study showed that up to 20-45% of Ayurvedic medicine-based herbs, such as Boswellia serrata, contain dangerous levels of arsenic, lead and mercury. Heavy metal toxicity can lead to numerous medical problems including, but not limited to, neurotoxicity.

 

PYRROLIZIDINE ALKALOID FREE

GLIACINTM IS COMPLETELY FREE OF PYRROLIZIDINE ALKALOIDS- Certain herbal preparations, namely butterbur-derived products, may contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids (P.A.’s). Pyrrolizidine alkaloids have been linked to liver toxicity and certain cancers; therefore, they must be always be avoided.  

                                                                                                                  

NEVER IRRADIATED

GLIACINTM IS NEVER IRRADIATED- Other companies routinely use ionizing radiation (generated by electronic and/or radioactive sources) to rid their herbal preparations of microorganisms. In fact, some studies estimate that ~40-50% of herbal products on the market have been irradiated. Excessive irradiation can lead to health concerns and alter the chemical composition, and thus the effectiveness and safety, of herbs.

 

MICROBIAL & FUNGAL FREE

GLIACINTM IS FREE OF HARMFUL BACTERIA, YEAST & MOLD- All plant-derived products designed for consumption are at risk of microbial contamination. Strict manufacturing and sanitary standards must be maintained throughout the formulation process to guarantee no risk of product-related infection. Likewise, GliacinTM undergoes extensive microbiological testing to assure the final product is free of bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella.

 

PESTICIDE FREE

GLIACINTM IS PESTICIDE FREE- Pesticides are any substance intended to prevent, destroy or repel any pest during the herbal production process. Other herbal products may contain dangerous levels of pesticides such as DDT, DDE, isomers of HCH and alpha-endosulfan to name a few. During the production of GliacinTM , Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) for plant materials are strictly followed, assuring the final product has non-detectable levels of even the safest pesticides.
