This rare resveratrol analog can ease stomach pain
The researchers were studying how Nuclear factor- B (NF- B) plays a critical role in the regulation of immune and inflammatory responses. When polydatin was added to infected cells, it was found to contain pharmacological factors that greatly inhibited the production of inflammatory mediators. Polydatin was also found to induce the production of antioxidants and better regulated the immune system.
The results showed that polydatin treatment down regulated NF- B p65 activity and expression, blocked the expression of TNF- , IL-6 and IL-1 at both mRNA and protein levels, decreased myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, and alleviated inflammatory damage of colitis in mice with Ulcertative Colitis (p<0.05), suggesting that the anti-inflammation effects of polydatin can be attributed, at least partially, to the blocking of the NF- B pathway.
James Betz, founder and CEO of Biotivia, a polydatin specialist, welcomed these results saying: “Its great to see that more research is being done by prestigious institutions investigating resveratrol and its analogs, including polydatin. The body of scientific evidence elucidating the beneficial properties of these compounds is growing almost daily with more and more animal and human studies confirming the results of earlier in vitro studies. We have been studying polydatin and other stilbenes for almost ten years. Our observations led us to include polydatin in PteroMax, the world’s first polydatin supplement. PteroMax is an extremely potent and efficacious polydatin, resveratrol and pterostilbene supplement.”
PteroMax is the latest innovation in health supplementation. It combines polydatin, pterostilbene, resveratrol, OPC’s and polyphenols. The resveratrol analogs complement trans-resveratrol by activating various genes, proteins, and signaling pathways, that trans-resveratrol only weakly activates or does not affect at all. A multi-stilbene supplement such as PteroMax provides far greater overall antioxidant, heart health, fitness, and cognitive support benefits.
Polydatin takes this one step further, and the OPCs and polyphenols in PteroMax catalyze the entire formulation. PteroMax is also the world’s only supplement to contain polydatin, the rare bio-active form of resveratrol which has important health benefits.
Betz continues: “We have created the only supplement in the world that contains this formulation of unique ingredients. Each dose of PteroMax is the equivalent to over 200 pounds of blueberries and has the highest ORAC level of any known supplement, as independently tested by Brunswick Labs. If you are looking for a range of advanced ingredients that work in synergy with your body to give optimum results then PteroMax is the supplement for you.”

About Biotivia LLC
Biotivia was established in 1992 in Vienna, Austria as a supplier of natural raw materials and biologically active botanics to the supplement and functional food industries and to researchers and scientific institutions worldwide. The company evolved into one of the world’s leading developers and suppliers of unique science-based nutritional supplements and award winning skin care therapies, with most of their products centered around the use of concentrated resveratrol and complementary evidence-based botanical extracts.
Biotivia presently has US offices in New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City and international offices in the UK, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Singapore, Xi’an, China and Mumbai, India.
Beyond its strong consumer base, the company currently supplies researchers, physicians and scientists at Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Georgetown, The Albert Einstein Medical Center, University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Health Canada, and the University of California. Transmax and Bioforte in particular are being investigated by several major university medical schools 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 most recently signed an agreement to supply Transmax to the University of Ferrara for use in three human clinical trials in Italy and Egypt on its possible use by Thalassemia sufferers as an alternative to the whole blood transfusions which such patients now require monthly. The Albert Einstein Medical College published a study which elucidated the beneficial effects of Biotivia’s proprietary resveratrol on glucose tolerance and mitochondria function in pre-diabetic subjects. Bioforte was also shown to more than double brain blood flow in a study done at the University of Northumbria in the UK.
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’. Transmax has been certified as an investigational drug by the NIH, an endorsement of its safety and purity.
Most of Biotivia’s supplements have been certified Vegan by the American Vegetarian Association.
