Safe? Most likely.
Useful? No, not at all, not even a little bit.Source(s): White Oak Bark, Lungwort Herb, Marshmallow Root, Mullein Leaf, Black Walnut Leaf, Gravel Root, Slippery Elm Bark, Wormwood Herb, Plantain Leaf, Lobelia Herb, Skullcap Herb & Aloe Vera 100:1 will do nothing for your "bone and tissue". Nevermind that it is unlikely to contain much of any of them.
