Safety is of top priority when it comes to consumption of placenta extract. Several studies have found that placentas were contaminated with infectious agents, as well as heavy metals, such as selenium, cadmium, mercury and lead.
Since the placenta is not sterile, there is a potential for transmitting infectious agents, including bacteria and viruses, to be present within the placenta. These could cause infection and hence, pose a risk for illness if consumed. In addition, the preparation of placenta extract may inadvertently introduce infectious agents.
Heating to a high temperature helps eliminate any potentially infectious pathogens. However, heating would also probably eliminate any potential benefits which come from bioactive compounds (most of them are heat-sensitive). Hence, practising the highest safety standard while preserving bioactive compounds is of utmost important. Besides infections, there is also a potential risk from other toxic substances. In view of these, it is crucial to look for placenta extracts that are approved by authorities.
Approved by Japan Health & Nutrition Food Association Authority, Le Ageless is developed under stringent quality control and safety standards. Besides, Le Ageless is manufactured in a facility in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP) standards. Furthermore, the placenta used for extraction of bioactive peptides is the first mammal placenta approved for use in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, in accordance to the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act, Japan. Supported by more than 40 years in placenta research, Le Ageless has no known side effects. It is trusted by leading anti-ageing clinics in Japan and consumers can rest assured that Le Ageless is totally safe and highly effective with high concentration of bioactive compounds.
