Biotivia Bio Span+ Longevity Trans-Resveratrol Bio Enhanced 500 mg. - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Biotivia Bio Span+ Bio Enhanced is the supreme resveratrol longevity supplement. Bio Span+ is the only scientifically formulated resveratrol-based supplement which provides a truly synergistic blend of longevity compounds in one capsule. Bio Span+ contains a full array of SirT-1 activators, telomerase precursors, and neurotropic agents, the three major anti-aging bioceuticals. The objective of their scientists was to create a totally natural product which attacks aging at the metabolic, epigenetic, and neural levels. This translates into slower physical, cellular and mental aging.
Bio Span+ is the most economical way to obtain the longevity-enhancement benefits of bio-enhanced Resveratrol, Silymarin, Curcumin and the two rare astragalosides of Astragalus in one convenient capsule. With Bio Span+ you can be assured you will receive Biotivia quality and potency.
Bio Span+ is the only scientifically formulated resveratrol-based supplement which provides a truly synergist blend of longevity compounds in one capsule.
Bio Span+ contains SirT-1 activators, telomerase enhancers, and neurotropic agents, the three major life span related bioceuticals.
Bio Span + contains more of the telemerase enhancing compound than a well known competing product that sells for over $400 per bottle.
The objective of their scientists was to create a totally natural product which attacks aging at the cellular, epigenetic, mitochondrial and telemere sites.
This translates into slower physical, cellular, and neurological aging. It also translates into a higher level of energy, improved concentration and mood, and improved general health, as well as a much lower risk of contracting the usual serious medical conditions associated with the aging process.
Each of the ingredients contained in Bio Span+ have been found to support increased health and longevity in published, peer-reviewed clinical studies.
Packed in advanced all vegetable Pfizer V Licaps – which, unlike traditional gelatin capsules, keep out oxygen, light and other contaminants that destroy the potency of fish oil products -- often while they are still on the shelves.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and all faiths.
Why Bio Span+ is Unique
The Trans-Resveratrol contained in Bio Span + is a 50/50 blend of the same bio-enhanced proprietary full-spectrum found in Bioforte and the pure Trans-resveratrol they put in Transmax. This provides all of the important glucosides of the Polygonum Cuspidatum plant, including Polydatin and an extra helping of the pure Trans-Resveratrol isomer.
They combine the Resveratrol with concentrated extract of Curcumin, a compound shown to stimulate the growth of new neurons, as well as Silymarin, an extract of the Blessed Milk Thistle plant that, like Trans-Resveratrol, is a SirT-1 activator, and the two Astragalosides which researchers have found to have telomerase stimulation properties. One other company is selling a therapy based upon Astragalosides IV, one of the compounds in Bio Span+, for around $25,000 for a one year program of supplementation and telomere length testing.
Bio Span+ Supreme Longevity Supplement Ingredients
Regenerate, Rejuvenate and Restore
Trans-Resveratrol 75%, 200mg* -- This ingredient alone would make an extraordinary product. Bio-enhanced natural Resveratrolmodulates the benefits of the other polyphenols contained in this complex and activates the SirT longevity genes.
Silymarin 200mg* -- A second SirT gene activator that complements Trans-Resveratrol. Extracted from blessed milk thistle, Silymarin supports healthy liver function and modulates blood glucose levels. Chosen over Quercetin, which actually suppresses SirT activation and interferes with the important Resveratrol metabolites.
Astragalus 300mg* -- Considered to be the most promising longevity compound after Resveratrol. Some studies indicate that this extract may have telomere protective properties. Also supports immune system, and may increase the body's resistance to common viruses. Bio Span+ contains the two essential Astragalosides of this compound including the rare Astragaloside IV molecule.
Curcumin 300mg* -- A uniquely effective polyphenol that acts as a free radical scavenger and antioxidant, inhibiting lipid peroxidation and oxidative DNA damage. Curcumin's beneficial properties are well established and supported by a wealth of peer-reviewed published data. Standardized to minimum 96% active curcumins.
* Per serving of 2 Vcaps.
Frequent Questions Relating to Bio Span Longevity Supplement
Why Bio Span Trans-Resveratrol Longevity? Although resveratrol is the most publicized new longevity compound, it alone will not address your entire need for advanced nutrition; hence Bio Span+ was developed.
Bio Span+ was designed to complement the life extension properties of resveratrol by adding concentrated polyphenols and the Sirt 1 Activator silymarin, along with curcumin, and the two critical astragalosides of Astralagus which are believed by many scientists to have telomere protective properties. No other product currently being manufactured compares to Bio Span+ in its potential for enhancement of longevity.
Why did Biotivia Choose Not to Include Quercetin? They have devoted quite a bit of study and research to quercetin's effect on resveratrol and resveratrol's metabolites and the issue of Sirt 1 activation. Their conclusion is that the most recent and best designed studies, including a study by one company that actually puts quercetin in their product, conclude that quercetin strongly inhibits the metabolites of resveratrol and suppresses SirT1 activation. Quercetin has been shown in numerous studies to interfere with the beneficial metabolites of resveratrol. These metabolites, particularly resveratrol glucuronide, resveratrol sulphate and picead possess important health properties. Studies also confirm that enterohepatic recirculation (recirculation by the liver) of these metabolites contributes significantly to the enhanced exposure of resveratrol in the tissues of mammals. Furthermore, quercetin's undesirable Sirt 1 suppression clearly rules it out as an ingredient in any longevity product.
If Biotivia scientists believed that quercetin would improve their products in a substantive way it would be in their interest to add it to their products. From an economic standpoint this would also benefit us, as quercetin is far less costly than the high-grade resveratrol they use in their supplements. A recent study by the makers of Longevinex strongly confirms their conclusion that quercetin inhibits SirT1 and possibly the other sirtuins as well. In this study a combination of resveratrol and quercetin along with the filler oat bran actually reduced SirT1 activation by a factor of 1.7 times; precisely the opposite effect one is looking for in a product designed to increase longevity.
How Should I Store the Products? Their products are very stable at room temperature but it will not hurt to refrigerate them. Either way they will last for at least 2 years on the shelf after opening.
How Many Capsules Should I Take? Bio Span dosage is a very individual choice and depends on your weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry and your primary reasons for taking the product. In general the amount you take should be in proportion to your weight. For example a 200 pound man should take roughly twice as much as a 100 pound woman, all other things being the same. If you are taking the product for a pre-existing condition then the dosage would be significantly higher than if you were taking resveratrol as part of a preventative regimen. As part of a daily preventative regimen the average adult (i.e. 150 lbs.) should take 2 Bioforte or 1 Transmax per day. This equates to about $1 per day for a supplement which has an extraordinarily wide range of benefits. If, however, you are treating a pre-existing condition many specialists would recommend a much higher dosage, say at least 4 times the preventative dose, or 4 Transmax a day.
When and How Should I Take the Product? Resveratrol is not very water soluble therefore your body needs to produce enzymes such as bile from the liver and gall bladder to assimilate it. Therefore they recommend that you take their products along with or shortly after taking small amounts of an oily food. This stimulates the production of the necessary enzymes and facilitates absorption. Since their products are natural they can be taken on an empty stomach and will be absorbed more easily if taken at least one hour before or after consuming a substantial meal. Their products may be taken at any time however early morning is when your body best absorbs most nutrients. To prevent intracellular oxidation of the resveratrol, and this applies to many other polyphenols as well, one should take an antioxidant with one's daily resveratrol dose. Although something as simple as one gram of Vitamin C will help prevent oxidation they naturally recommend that you consider Biotivia's super fruit extract formulation, Bio Quench, as your choice of antioxidant. Bio Quench tested at an ORAC rating per gram of over 13,500. This is the highest rating for any dry compound ever tested by Brunswick Laboratories, the inventor of the ORAC test.
