Biotivia, the world leader in resveratrol and pterostilbene-based supplements, has launched Biotivia Labs, a turnkey supply package for botanical and synthetic ingredients.
Targeted to medium and larger-sized manufacturers of healthy foods and dietary supplements, Biotivia Labs offers a virtually unlimited range of ingredients from our affiliates worldwide and provides a quality-certified and customs-cleared, product delivered to your facility.
James Betz, Biotivia’s CEO, explains the advantages of Biotivia’s premium service. “Many North American and European buyers of botanicals and other ingredients to use in functional foods and supplements have discovered to their chagrin that the cheap prices offered in the Far East often don’t equate to product quality, appropriate ethical standards or customer service. The vast majority of sellers who advertise ingredients on services such as Alibaba are actually small brokers with no production facilities, export experience or credit worthiness. At worst, buyers lose their money or end up with inferior ingredients. At best they have to deal with language issues, international payments, quality and quantity certification, and often perplexing import and customs formalities. Biotivia Labs avoids those pitfalls by providing quality-assured ingredients and delivering them direct to the buyer’s processing plant with a quality guarantee.”
Biotivia Labs is launching with a focus on their core area of expertise: resveratrol, pterostilbene, polydatin/pieced and other resveratrol analogs and stilbenes.
Betz explains: “Biotivia is the largest seller of resveratrol and pterostilbene globally. Consequently, over the years, we have established extraction and processing capabilities, which dwarf those of boutique ingredients suppliers. We’ve also developed skills in shipping and importing to the world’s major markets. And because we are also the world’s largest seller of resveratrol and resveratrol analog finished products we are extraordinarily well positioned to assist you in new product development and distribution.
Although Biotivia is focusing initially on resveratrol, pterostilbene and other RSV analogs our line of natural and synthetic ingredients, including most APIs, is almost unlimited.
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 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.
