Bioforte, World's First Pure Resveratrol Supplement, Coming to U.S.

VIENNA, Austria, March 19, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Biotivia Nutraceuticals Ltd. has announced the U.S. launch of the world's first pure resveratrol dietary supplement that is potent enough to replicate ounce-for-ounce the human equivalent doses used in recent headline-grabbing, anti-aging studies on mice by Harvard University and the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology in France.

Bioforte 500 Resveratrol, the highest-strength trans-resveratrol product on the market, will be available direct to U.S. consumers in March 2007 at

Bioforte is 100 percent pure pharmaceutical polygonum cuspidatum extract from organic, natural, wild plant sources. Each capsule contains a minimum of 250mg of the critical trans-resveratrol isomer, the compound researchers found responsible for the "fountain of youth" results in mice.

"Resveratrol supplements have been available for years," says James Betz, founder, managing director and a 15-year veteran of the nutrition industry, "but the amount of resveratrol in these products is too low to deliver any actual health benefits. They are essentially worthless."

Resveratrol's anti-aging properties were first observed in 1994. To date, it has also been shown to be an effective anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-cholesterol, weight-controlling, blood pressure and blood sugar-normalizing agent.

In November 2006, scientists reported huge doses of a red wine extract (resveratrol) helped obese mice live longer, healthier lives. The "miracle molecule," found in grape skin as well as peanuts, mulberries, eucalyptus, spruce, lily and other plants, is one reason French people have less heart disease than Americans -- despite a diet high in fat and carbohydrates.

"Taking a Bioforte capsule is equivalent to drinking more than 200 glasses of fine French wine," says Betz, "without the damaging effects to the liver."
