FAQs
What nutrients does Bio-Strath contain?

Bio-Strath contains more than 60 essential nutrients. This inlcudes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, building substances, and trace elements.

The nutrients present in Bio-Strath are in biological equilibrium and are supplied in a natural manner to ensure optimum absorption. The individual nutrients are present in low quantities and are not available at the recommended daily doses (RDA).


How fast/quickly does Bio-Strath work?

Anything between a few hours and 2-3 days depending on the physical condition and as long as it is taken regularly. The worse the condition, the quicker and the better the response time will be noticed. Studies have shown that it is beneficial to take Bio-Strath for a longer time periods.


How does Bio-Strath affect the body?

Bio-Strath is a natural nutritional supplement of high quality, rich in essential nutrients. It has a strengthening and balancing effect on all bodily functions (homoeostasis). Bio-Strath works very well in cases of poor diet, overwork and less than optimum state of health.


What does Bio-Strath taste like?

The tablets have a neutral taste.

The elixir has a slightly sweet taste of yeast, malt and honey. The taste reflects the natural raw materials used to produce Bio-Strath. To keep Bio-Strath in its 100% natural form there is very few things that can be added to the product to alter the taste. A little bit of orange concentrate and honey has been added to give it a sweeter tasted.


What is the difference between the tablets and the elixir and which one is better to use?

Both preparations are based on the same plasmolysed herbal yeast and they have the same action. The tablets are suitable for diabetics and vegans, whereas the elixir (syrup) is not. Both have the same effectiveness.


Does Bio-Strath cause weight gain?

Not if sensible quantities of food are eaten with healthy snacks. Bio-Strath helps the body utilise food better and tend to stimulate the appetite.

Our Research

Pre-geriatric study on Bio-Strath.

A three-month placebo-controlled study determined that the use of Bio-Strath® can slow or reverse the development of geriatric disorders. The general condition of patients receiving Bio- Strath® tablets or liquid improved significantly compared to placebo as did short-term memory, physical exercise tests, recovery time and age related physical symptoms. The results of an overall medical assessment improved by 82% in those who received Bio-Strath® liquid, 66% in those who received tablets and only 27% in those on placebo.

Pre-Alzheimer study.

Patients between the age of 57 and 84 with advanced geriatric symptoms, the majority of which had pre-Alzheimer’s problems were given Bio-Strath® for 3 months or placebo. Those who received Bio-Strath® experienced significant improvements over placebo with regards to fatigue, headaches, dizziness, sleep problems as well as improved mental alertness, emotional stability and mood. Overall geriatric symptom scores (GESY) also improved significantly as did the ability to speak numbers backwards (a highly demanding psychometric test), scores measuring other related geriatric diseases also improved significantly compared to placebo.

The effect of a food supplement on the behaviour of children with attention deficit disorders (ADD/ADHD).

18 children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD were treated with Bio-Strath® for 6 weeks, not a single adverse event was reported, and two thirds of the children experienced various significant improvements in terms of objective visual and auditory performance measurements. Bio-Strath® particularly improved auditory prudence, vigilance & impulsivity as well as visual consistency and focus.

The effect of a food supplement on the behaviour and health of children with special needs.

Sixty-four children in a special needs school were given Bio-Strath® for a period of 20 weeks; the incidence of colds & flu amongst the children were comparably lower than local averages furthermore absenteeism amongst the children decreased by 42% while on Bio-Strath®. Concentration improved in 56% of children and distraction improved in 67% of children. Other parameters such as restlessness, agitation, disturbing lessons and others either stabilized or improved in the majority of the children. Bio-Strath® thus offered protection against illness in winter and resulted in an overall improvement in learning behaviour.

Improvement of bio-availability of minerals and vitamin B1 thanks to Strath® Original herbal yeast.

Using an in vitro experiment simulating the human digestive system the application of Bio-Strath® resulted in six times more Magnesium & Zinc, five times more Iron and up to 10 times more Vitamin B1 being absorbed. Since the absorption of all micronutrients tested were improved significantly it is presumed that Bio-Strath® would improve the absorption of other vital substances too.

Haemoglobin levels during pregnancy.

A study on pregnant women given Bio-Strath® found that it effectively maintains haemoglobin of pregnant women throughout pregnancy without additional vitamin or iron supplements, and when anaemia was present, the use of Bio-Strath® together with iron supplements enhanced the assimilation of the supplement. Bio-Strath® also helped maintain a sense of general wellbeing and vitality during pregnancy. The study concluded that acting as a ‘catalyst’, Bio-Strath® enhances the body’s ability to assimilate iron from a normal, healthy diet and improves assimilation of iron supplementation.

Mode of action of plasmolysed yeast on lymphocytes under microgravity stress.

Non-reproductive immune cells (lymphocytes) stressed by low gravity conditions when treated with Bio-Strath® re-establish normal cell reproduction and growth.

Stress-compensation by a food supplement based on yeast plasmolysate in mitogen-activated T lymphocytes under simulated low-gravity.

The stress of low gravity inhibits the activity of T-lymphocyte immune cells – when treated with Bio-Strath® however these cells can overcome this stress and resume normal activity.

Influenza and colds in winter? Prophylaxis with a food supplement in comparison with the influenza vaccination.

The preventative effect of Bio-Strath® (tablets & liquid) against colds and flu was compared against the influenza vaccine and control in 232 patients during winter, those who received Bio- Strath® reported better results with respect to general condition, concentration, fatigue, vitality and stress and fewer absences from work than the influenza vaccine group or the control group.

Increasing powers of concentration.

Twenty-four 14yr old schoolgirls treated with Bio-Strath® for 10 weeks experienced significant improvement in arithmetic & language ability attributed to improved concentration, endurance and memory and simultaneously benefited from significantly less absences from school due to illness; i.e. 1.9 lessons periods lost in those on Bio-Strath® vs 8.6 in those not.

Bio-Strath and increased efficiency.

In a 12-week double blind, placebo-controlled trial on 60 participants Bio-Strath® significantly improved reaction time, coordination, recovery time and physical performance and resulted in a 64% improvement in aspects such as fatigue, nervousness, concentration, resistance, physical & mental capacity and vitality compared to placebo with only a 10% improvement. Those who received Bio-Strath® also reported greater energy, less tiredness, improved sleep, digestion and skin and less headaches, brittle nails.

Experimental trial of a yeast supplement during a period of high physical exertion.

35 Finnish athletes given Bio-Strath® in a seven-week, controlled trial experienced improved performance in an endurance run test and 86% experienced improved appetite, digestion and sleep. Coaches also reported athletes taking Bio-Strath® as having improved concentration, quicker recovery after exercise, these improvements were attributed to Bio-Strath’s ability to correct nutritional deficiencies experienced by the athletes.

Influence of Bio-Strath® on osteogensis.

A laboratory-based bone density study found that the application of Bio-Strath® caused bone building (osteoblast) cells to mature & develop, in addition Bio-Strath® reduced the formation of cells that break down bone (osteoclasts), when treating osteoporosis ideally there should be more osteoblast activity and less osteoclast activity. Bio-Strath® does this by producing two proteins known to prevent osteoporosis (OPG & RUNX2). When combined with a combination of bone building substances Bio-Strath® resulted in an enhanced effect suggesting that Bio-Strath® in combination with drug therapy could be successful in osteoporosis.

Natural food supplement during convalescence.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study on cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy Bio- Strath® resulted in significantly improved physical activity, appetite and general health condition compared to those who received placebo who experienced deterioration in these points. Placebo participants generally lost weight during and after radiotherapy, however those who received Bio- Strath® were able to maintain or gain weight during and after radiotherapy, the similar occurred for haemoglobin; the use of Bio-Strath® preventing decrease in haemoglobin experienced significantly in the placebo group. By improving appetite and nutrition Bio-Strath® was thus able to combat the negative impact on physical activity, appetite, weight general health and haemoglobin experienced by cancer patients receiving radiotherapy treatment.

Strengthening endogenous defences the effect of a yeast supplement, Bio-Strath (Strath), on cell proliferation (cell reproduction).

Low gravity conditions are known to impact negatively on cell growth and activation; immune cells (Lymphocytes) subjected to these conditions were treated with Bio-Strath® and it was found that despite the strong inhibitory effects of low gravity immune cell activation occurred when these cells were treated with Bio-Strath®.[13]
