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 (derived from sunflowers)(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: http://www.swolesource.com/forum/advanced-supplement-science/249-7-8-benzoflavone-carcinogenic.html
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). This Phosphatidylserine is derived from Sunflowers, not Soy!!! See the COA! Note: Phosphatidylserine can cause bloating and diarrhea in some sensitive individuals.
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.
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, flow agents, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.

Regarding your 7,8 Benzoflavone, this stuff is gold! The dose of 7, 8 Benzo is very generous and insanely effective as an anti-estrogen (which I have issues with naturally). Phosphatidylserine is amazing for cognitive function, though I'm not sure about the cortisol piece, I never go off phosphatidyleserine as I have a job with heavy concentration challenges. The addition of Resveratrol is also nice though as an anti-estrogen one would need to take both caps of this together (200mg trans-resveratrol seems to be what most agree on for this usage). I found no difference taking one cap twice daily vs two caps once daily so I stick with the later. Great stuff. Pricey. But worth it! A.C., Surrey, Canada (8/14/2015)
Hi Barlowe, The 7,8 Benzoflavone Complex is excellent. This is the first product that I can actually notice to make a difference (and I tried almost all legal stuff out there (my poor liver)). After only a week I'm a lot more focused, strength / ambition is up, sex is better and a lot more frequent. I'm sure the Nettle extract helps as well as I take them together, but overall I feel like I'm back in my twenties :-D The price is well justified. Don't ever stop carrying it please! :-) B.C., The Hague, Netherlands (4/25/2014)
