Temporary Capsule Color Change for Transmax!
The signature Biotivia dark green capsules are no longer being manufactured. After diligently seeking alternative sources, rather than inconvenience customers with intermitted supply, they will temporarily be using a simple white, opaque, vegetable capsule for Transmax. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Please rest assured, each vegetable capsule still contains 500mg of the high quality 98% Trans-Resveratrol that you have come to count on from Biotivia.
Why Choose Transmax Trans-Resveratrol Supplements
Transmax is the world's original and still best selling 500mg Resveratrol supplement, for good reasons.
Most other Resveratrol suppliers did not exist even two years ago. These new comers have sprung up to take advantage of the popularity of Resveratrol. Unlike Biotivia they have no experience processing critical botanicals such as resveratrol, no scientists, no in-house laboratory or quality control system and they simply buy raw material from the lowest price broker or middleman and fill generic capsules. One wonders what they are actually selling. Biotivia is a manufacturer of herbal products not simply a reseller. They have over 18 years as an international manufacturer and processor of quality rare botanical materials. They have the expertise, quality control systems, staff and experience to insure that their products meet rigid quality, quantity and potency standards. This is why they are the first choice of the medical and research communities when they require resveratrol for human studies and trials.
Sirt1-4 longevity genes activation is highly dose dependent. This is another example of their committment to product improvement through science. Bioforte is now being processed using a proprietary system which dramatically boosts Trans-Resveratrol Bio Availability. The result is a substantially more effective dietary supplement and a much better value.
Their products are the purest, highest-potency, best value and freshest quality-validated Resveratrol supplements available anywhere. It is that simple.

A Company is Known by the Customers it Keeps.
Biotivia is not only the world's best selling Resveratrol product line, it is also the first and often only choice of major universities, research facilities and medical schools who buy their purified Resveratrol in the form of Transmax to conduct human studies and trials of Resveratrol's disease fighting and anti-aging properties. Their clients include such prestigious organizations as the Albert Einstein Medical School, Harvard University scientists and researchers, the US National Institutes of Health and the Health Ministries of Canada, the UK and many other countries. There are more human trials underway at major universities and medical schools using Transmax resveratrol than all other competitors' products together. Transmax is the only resveratrol supplement chosen by the US National Institutes of health and the Ministry of Health in Canada to certify as an investigational drug, IND. This is a tribute to the quality, integrity and potency of their Resveratrol health products.
The Transmax Trans-Resveratrol supplement provides the full daily dosage of the scientific trials in a single capsule.

Bioforte is 100% pure natural full-spectrum bio-enhanced Resveratrol. It contains no synthetic or genetically modified ingredients, no fillers and no Quercetin, Polysorbate, silica or other chemical
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Biotivia Achieve a Two Fold Increase in Bio-availability?
Biotivia scientists have extensively researched the pharmacokinetics of Resveratrol and have developed a first in class product. Other companies formulate Resveratrol with fillers and excipients or reduce particle size to support a claim of increased bio-availability. These suppliers have no scientific staff or laboratories and often base their formulations upon speculation by non scientists or data that are not relevant to Resveratrol. Biotivia tackles the root problem of the bio-availability of Resveratrol through research by their own scientists in their own research facilities and collaboration with respected university pharmacy schools.
How do they achieve enhanced bio-activity? Resveratrol goes through a step called phase I metabolism. Phase I metabolism takes place in your gut and actively attaches enzymes to Resveratrol to make it non-active. In the biotech industry companies combat this type of issue in two ways. The first is to use a pro-drug. A pro-drug, which can and often is a natural plant extract, is not active itself but gets degraded into the active drug, in their case Resveratrol. In essence this helps Resveratrol bypass phase I metabolism and increases the potency and efficacy of their products. Another common practice among biotech companies is to use a pharmacokinetic enhancer. A pharmacokinetic enhancer will allow more Resveratrol to enter your body and is an effective means of increasing Resveratrol's benefits.
The SirT1 activation properties of their resveratrol-based supplements are to a great extent a function of this enhancement process. The precise method and modifications to standard resveratrol used by Biotivia are trade secrets however in response to a challenge by one of their competitors, their claim of superior bio-avialability was upheld by the National Advertising Division of the National BBB after an extensive review of their evidence by their experts. Furthermore, an internationally recognized and respected independent testing lab found Transmax and Bioforte to be the two most potent supplements that passed their recent evaluation of Resveratrol brands. This is a test that most suppliers chose not to participate in. In their clinical research they have done a one to one human study of Transmax versus pure reference standard Resveratrol. They are confident that Biotivia offers truly unique and superior Resveratrol-based products in terms of effective potency and bio-availability.
What is the Difference Between Bioforte and Transmax?
Based on studies done to date virtually all of the benefits of Resveratrol derive from the Trans-Resveratrol isomer. Their Bioforte resveratrol supplement has 250mg of bio-enhanced "Trans-Resveratrol" per all vegetable Pfizer capsule. The remaining 250mg consists of the other forms of Resveratrol including glucosides of Resveratrol, polydatin, emodin and other beneficial compounds naturally found in the Polygonum Cuspidatum plant. That is why they call Bioforte their full spectrum Resveratrol product. Transmax resveratrol supplement contains 500mg of purified "Trans-Resveratrol" making it laboratory grade. None of their products contain fillers, inert ingredients, or extraneous chemicals which might interfere with the purity and effectiveness of their formulations. This is an important reason why Transmax and Bioforte are used by scientists, physicians and university researchers when trying to isolate and quantify the effects of Trans-Resveratrol in various trials and studies. Their buyers include the top research professionals from virtually all of the respected medical schools and research institutions in the US, including Harvard, MIT, Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, University of Pittsburg and many others in Europe and the Asia.
How Many Capsules Should I Take?
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 dosage per day. This equates to about $1 per day for a Resveratrol 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 our supplements 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 supplements 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 Bio Quench super fruit extract formulation, 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.
How Does Biotivia Protect against Oxidation and 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. Only Biotivia utilizes a patented Active Packaging technology which captures the free oxygen which enters a bottle when a capsule is retrieved. This system prevent oxidation of the sensitive resveratrol isomer and insures that your product will be just as bio active two years from the purchase date as it is the day you buy it.
Biotivia Bioceuticals LLC Company Information
After 18 years of manufacturing raw materials and botanical extracts for the food, medical and supplement industries Biotivia entered the finished products arena for one reason. To design products that fit the space between generic vitamins and nutrients which are safe but only marginally effective, and prescription pharmaceuticals which are often effective but come with frequently serious adverse effects and high cost.
Unlike most supplement companies Biotivia was founded by and is staffed with scientists, pharmacists and specialists in nutraceuticals and botanical extract manufacturing. Their obsession is with quality, safety and effectiveness, not on compromising quality for the sake of a lower cost or on clever marketing gimmicks.
Their products are based upon intensive research and collaboration with the scientific and academic communities. They are safe, free of adverse side effects but uniquely potent and efficacious.
When they decide to create a new product they are guided by two overriding principals. First, there must exist a preponderance of definitive scientific evidence which demonstrates that a natural compound or combination of compounds has important health effects or efficacy against a medical condition, or can contribute to a significant improvement in a person's quality of life. Secondly, once their scientists have made this conclusion they identify the best product currently serving this application, if one exists, and they formulate their product to be at least one order of magnitude better.
The fact that they utilize only very high quality natural extracts, and they manufacture their products in sterile, regulated pharmaceutical facilities, and they take great care to preserve the integrity of the finished product means that their supplements will not always be the least expensive of their category. However they assure you that they will be ethical, efficacious, safe and based upon sound and rational design and formulation principals. We believe that good value is more than simply low price. Good value to us means a high quality, safe, effective product which is priced as low as they are able based upon their costs plus a profit sufficient to insure Biotivia remains economically viable.
Biotivia was established in 1992 in Vienna Austria as a supplier of natural raw materials and botanicals to the supplement and functional food industries and to researchers and scientific institutions worldwide. The company presently has US offices in New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City and international offices in the UK, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Singapore, Xi'an China and Mumbai India.
Biotivia pioneered the science of supplement design and development based upon evidence of efficacy and safety drawn from the company's own studies and trials and in collaboration with world renowned research organizations. The company presently supplies researchers, physicians and scientists employed at Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Georgetown, The Albert Einstein Medical Center, University of Texas, the University of California, and many others with research-grade bioceuticals. Transmax and Bioforte are being studied by several major universities as a possible treatment for a variety of conditions that seriously impair the health and well being of millions of people around the world.
Biotivia is the first supplement manufacturer in the world to apply advanced "Active Packaging" technologies to its products to insure the highest level of freshness and potency even after the container is opened. It is also the first company to dramatically improve the bio availability of its products, especially its Resveratrol and polyphenol-based products. Low bioavailability of many antioxidants is a common problem which the company's scientists have succeeded in overcoming without resorting to synthetic additives or lowering the product dosage.
Biotivia's products are unique in their use of synergistic ingredient formulations which deliver outstanding potency and therefore greater efficacy and a better value to their customers. Bio Quench is an example of how evidence-based design works to increase product strength. The combination of trans-resveratrol and super fruit extracts in Bio Quench has resulted in achieving an ORAC value of over 13,500 units per gram, a new benchmark for super antioxidants.
