Heart Disease Research and Bios Life
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study (link to study listed below) conducted at the highly respected Cleveland Clinic, Bios Life™ was clinically proven to lower both LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. A recent study in Guam yielded equally impressive results that won the attention of the American Heart Association. The 50-year Framingham Heart Study shows that for every point you lower your cholesterol, you reduce your risk of heart disease by 2%.
Bios Life™ holds three patents under the title, "Method and Composition for Reducing Serum Cholesterol Levels” and is clinically proven to lower LDL and triglycerides while increasing HDL. In addition to the Cleveland Clinic study that specifically studied the results of patients using Bios Life™ there are many other studies that point to a direct link between fiber consumption and heart disease risk. As the American diet deteriorates, fiber consumption continues to fall. In fact, the American Heart Association reports that most of us consume only half the fiber our bodies need daily. The American Heart Association recommends a daily consumption of 25-30 grams of fiber, while the American Dietetic Association recommends 20-35 grams of fiber daily. However, according to the American Dietetic Association, the average American currently consumes only 12-17 grams of fiber each day.

In 1985, the New England Journal of Medicine published the Ireland-Boston Diet-Heart Study, the first large study to show the cardiovascular benefit of dietary fiber. The study showed that a diet rich in fiber (defined as 30 grams a day) was associated with a 43 percent reduction in the incidence of myocardial infarction compared to individuals who consumed 6-12 grams per day. Even more remarkable was that this risk reduction was independent of the serum cholesterol. In fact, the authors commented that a diet low in fiber was equivalent to cigarette smoking as a risk factor for coronary artery disease.
According to the American Journal of Cardiology, a supplemental 15 grams of fiber a day may significantly lower cholesterol levels in both men and women.
Bios Life™ offers you a convenient way to give your body the beneficial combination of soluble and insoluble fibers it needs each day. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, this extraordinary formula can support healthy cholesterol and blood-sugar levels. It also provides essential vitamins and minerals your body needs daily.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all your body’s cells. It’s normal to have cholesterol, and cholesterol is an important part of a healthy body because it’s used to build new cells, insulate nerves, and produce hormones.
One type of cholesterol is low-density lipoprotein or LDL. High levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association states that when too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries that feed the heart and brain. LDL cholesterol can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog those arteries.
The other type of cholesterol is high-density lipoprotein or HDL. Your body makes HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) for your protection. Studies show that high levels of HDL cholesterol reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Bios Life C™ works effectively to decrease the level of LDL cholesterol while increasing the level of HDL cholesterol through its patented, natural formula.

Soluble and Insoluble Fibers:
Fibers, in particular of the soluble kind, are well known to reduce LDL. The American Heart Association therefore advises to include 25 –30 grams of fiber daily in the diet. The mechanism of cholesterol reduction by fiber is through bile-acid sequestration. Typically, fiber is mixed with water, and consumed just before a meal. The gel matrix formed in the digestive tract absorbs bile acids, so that cholesterol re-absorption in the blood is inhibited. The cholesterol reducing effect of fibers has been documented extensively in the literature. The sponsor of this study, Unicity International, has marketed a patented fiber drink (Bios Life 2™) that works through bile-acid sequestration.
This sugar cane extract is a poly-alcohol that has been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels through inhibition of HMG CoA reductase.
These phytonutrients have similar structures to cholesterol and therefore competitively inhibit the absorption of cholesterol from the diet. Studies have focused on pure phytosterol administration and mixed in margarines. Typical reductions in LDL are 5 - 15% over 4 week periods.
This flower extract has been linked by internal research to enhancement of cholesterol metabolism. The plant has been used for centuries in Chinese culture as a tea.
