7,8 Benzoflavone Complex - Boosts Testosterone, Lowers Cortisol & Estrogen

Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs is proud to offer - 7,8 Benzoflavone Testosterone Boosting Anti-Aromatase Anti-Cortisol Complex. This product is similar to one called RES 100 produced in Australia by a company called Wicked Supplements, which is a basically a combination of two products (Sustain Alpha and EndoAmp Max) produced by a company that was called Primordial Performance.  Each capsule of this superb Complex is a combination of 100mg of 99% HPLC 7,8 Benzoflavone, 100mg of 98% HPLC Trans-Resveratrol, 290mg of 70% HPLC Phosphatidylserine (yielding 203mg of pure Phosphatidylserine) and 10mg of 95% HPLC Black Pepper Extract (as an absorption initiator). This product has been scientifically formulated to increase testosterone, while also reducing its aromatase into estrogen and lowering cortosol levels. The Phosphatidylerine may provide the added benefit of increased brain function. No expense has been spared in the manufacture of this product. All ingredients are the highest quality and potency available:

7,8 Benzoflavone (99% by HPLC)  - one of the best natural aromatase inhibitors known.  Aromatase is what happens in the body when some of your free testosterone converts to estrogen. This 7,8 Benzoflavone helps prevent this conversion. Although 7,8 Benzoflavone generally has a low bio-availability, 95% HPLC Black Pepper Extract (piperine) has been added to this formula which allows for much greater absorption by the body. 7,8 Benzoflavone may enhance sleep quality and increase sexual desire.  Note:  If you google 7,8 Benzoflavone you will come up with one website claiming that 7,8 Benzoflavone is carcinogenic. However, the blogger who wrote the article based it upon a total misrepresentation of the clinical studies. The studies say nothing about benzoflavone being toxic, just that it potentially worsens the effect of the poison aflatoxin. Aflatoxin isn't part of the standard diet in any form. In fact, we have laws in the U.S. to prevent aflatoxins from being in the food supply. So, the headline "benzoflavone is carcinogenic" is totally misleading and false. None of the papers cited show benzoflavones as being carcinogens at all. 

Here is a link to an article which discusses this:

Trans-Resveratrol (98% by HPLC) - a strong anti-oxidant which has testosterone boosting properties and which also helps prevent aromatase. Trans-Resveratrol has also been reported to benefit and protect the cardiovascular system.

Phosphatidylserine (70% by HPLC) - one of the best natural substances to control cortisol levels. Cortisol is sometimes called the "stress hormone" because its levels rise following physical or emotional stress. Increased cortisol levels during and after exercise may lead to cellular breakdown and lengthy recovery times. Studies have shown that supplementation with Phosphatidylserine may decrease cortisol levels by up to 30%.  Phosphatidylserine may give an added benefit as preliminary studies indicate that it may support healthy brain function and may prevent age-related mental decline. (Phosphatidylserine is an extremely expensive substance and most companies do not state the true amount or concentration in their products because most use a cheaper 20% Phosphatidylserine powder. Thus, a capsule with 500mg of the powder only yields 100mg of pure Phosphatidylserine. Barlowe uses 290mg of 70% Phosphatidylserine, yielding 203mg of pure Phosphatidylserine in each capsule of 7,8 Benzoflavone Complex).

Black Pepper (piperine) Extract (95% by HPLC) - an absorption initiator, Piperine may greatly increase the bio-availability of substances which the body generally finds difficult to digest or absorb.
