Resveratrol and its proven anti-aging properties
Bio Span contains a compound that has been shown to support increased telemere viability in humans. The deterioration of cell telemeres may be one of the fundamental processes of aging. In several studies it has been shown that the actual vs chronological age, of a person can be determined by the length of his or her telemeres, the cap at the end of the chromosomes.
As we age the telemere becomes shorter but an enzyme called telemerase prevents the shortening of the telemere thereby extending the life span of the cell.
Scientists have found that if they can slow or stop the shortening of telemeres then they can slow cell aging and extend the cells’ life span. This accomplishment is the basis for the Noble Prize in medicine.
In 2007 Biotivia scientists were also looking at a way to extend Telemeres and came across evidence that the rare Astragaloside IV molecule could increase production of telemerase. Since that time other studies have shown that purified Resveratrol also has a telemere protective quality and may increase both the production and survival of stem cells as well.
Another critical factor in reducing aging are the sirtuins, a class of proteins which are closely associated with the aging process in organisms ranging from bacteria to humans. Dr David Sinclair of Harvard, and later Sirtris Pharmaceuticals, published a landmark study in the journal Nature in 2006 which concluded that Resveratrol activated these enzymes resulting in a 31% extension of the life span of obese mice in his study. Other studies have shown even more dramatic results in fish and other animals.
Bio Span, the longevity supplement created by Biotivia, combines telemerase precursors with sirtuin activators and neurotropic agents to attack the aging processes and promote extended life span.
James Betz, founder of Biotivia says: “Bio Span is the only scientifically formulated Resveratrol-based supplement which provides a truly synergist blend of longevity compounds in one capsule. It contains SirT-1 activators, telemerase precursors, and neurotropic agents, the three major anti-aging bioceuticals.”
Bio Span combines Resveratrol, Silymarin, Astragulas and Curcumin which are all well documented ingredients proved to have anti-aging and disease resistant properties, as well as being potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.
Individually all the ingredients boast medicinal qualities and benefits that have used in traditional Chinese medicine but only recently embraced by western scientists.
Betz continues: “Our scientists’ objective was to create a totally natural product which attacks aging at the metabolic, epigenetic, mitochondrial and neural levels. The end result is slower physical, cellular and mental aging. It also helps to raise energy levels, lower inflammation and improve general health.”

Transmax and Bioforte in particular are being tested 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’s Resveratrol products, Transmax and Bioforte, have been independently assessed by Consumer Labs, the leading American quality watchdog, and were deemed both ‘most potent’ and ‘best value’ resveratrol supplements.
