Business Background

The growing health and wellness trends among consumers toward natural approaches and the shift to chemical-free products have made herbs one of the most important natural products in the health and wellness industries.

This has put Thailand at the forefront of these trends with competitive advantages in raw materials, body of knowledge, and excellent herbal properties complemented by the elevation of the herbal medicines into the modern dosage forms of capsules or tablets. These enhance the potential of the Thai herbal medicine industry to grow even further.

Still, the use of herbal medicines has not been as widely accepted as modern medicines due to the lack of research and development to determine a standardized quantity of active ingredients in herbal medicine formulations, as well as clinical evidence of their effectiveness and safety.

Outstanding Product Features

Innovative Herbal Medicines

The Company has set up BLC Research Center to employ advanced technologies and innovations in support of the research and development efforts to add value to Thai herbal medicines, enabling them to be useful alternative treatment alongside modern medicines. The endeavors include the following

1. Collaborate with universities and local research and development agencies to study several types of Thai herbs and their pharmacological activity.

2. Extract medicinal plants to obtain standardized bioactive constituents to ensure the same level of an essential active ingredient in every unit of medicine for maximum effectiveness and safety.

3. Develop a manufacturing process in compliance with the GMP-PIC/S standard for modern medicines and issue a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that outlines the tests performed on raw materials and finished products.

4. Conduct clinical research studies to provide evidence on the effectiveness and safety of the medicines. The findings which were published in multiple medical journals were used as a basis for developing a variety of innovative herbal medicines with properties that address customer needs, gaining the products wide acceptance from leading medical professionals nationwide.

Innovative medicines from natural herbs provide useful alternative treatment, reduce use and import of modern medicines from overseas, and create wealth and economic stability throughout the value chain from upstream to downstream, encompassing the agricultural sector, research and development, production, marketing, and distribution in the domestic and overseas markets.
