- If Bios Life 2® is so good, why haven’t I (or
even my Doctor) ever heard of it before?
Answer: It is because we are competing against the pharmaceutical
companies for the doctors’ time and attention and credibility.
Small companies with limited marketing budgets and a history of natural
products are by definition starting way behind the makers of statin
drugs that have spent over $10 billion in sales and marketing last year
alone. We have recently learned that there is a 1:1 ratio of pharmaceutical
sales agents to doctors in the US!!!
The flip side of your question is that over 1/3 of our Distributors
are also medical professionals, and the reason I am involved in this
business (aside from my personal health reason) is because I see an
incredible opportunity to sell a product that actually works (and is
truly independently verified and credible) to a growing number of baby-boomers
who are increasingly in need of it. And the greater medical profession
is only just beginning to be aware of it… so I see it as a great

What insurance coverage is available?
There is an actual “Explanation of Benefits
[EOB]” in the files for each of the following insurance companies:
|•Accumed (Pennsylvania’s Workers’
Blue Shield (various)
•Mutual of Omaha
We are aware of other companies that have reimbursed for our products,
but we have not seen their EOB’s. There is no guarantee that
your insurance company, even if it is listed here, will reimburse
your claim since there are several variables which may affect payment,
such as: how your claim is filed, your particular policy, and your
physical condition. We have found that it is generally worth pursuing
a claim with the insurer, and even arguing if it is rejected (since
insurance companies generally try to avoid payments, or delay them
as much as possible).
The CPT code recommended for filing your claims is 99070, and the
recommended wording is: “Supplies and materials provided by
the physician over and above those usually included with the office
visit or the services rendered.”
- What makes Bios Life 2® so special? How come it is
clinically and independently proven to work while other fiber products
Answer: The answer is hidden in the patent. If you were able
to consume the 25 to 35 grams of fiber a day (primarily soluble fiber)
as is recommended by the American Heart Association, then you would
be able to get the necessary fiber into your bloodstream. Unfortunately,
it would require a very unusual diet. For perspective, the average American
consumes about 12 grams of fiber a day. An example: one BOX of bran
cereal and 6 slices of wheat bread and 5 whole carrots would get you
there (for one day)!
Fiber medications have a different problem… the soluble fiber,
when in contact with water and stomach acid, forms a generally non-soluble
mass which passes through the system without getting much of it actually
dissolved into the bloodstream. The patent on Bios Life 2® is to
protect its’ unique method for getting the soluble fibers to break
up and dissolve into the blood stream. Its’ patented chemical
makeup causes it to break up and dissolve in the presence of water and
acid so it works effectively. Therefore it works unlike any other fiber
product on the market, and that is why it has been clinically proven
to work, and why it appears in the Physicians’ Desk Reference®
as a proper treatment.
- How much Bios Life 2® should I take?
Answer: The minimum recommended ongoing daily dosage is two
packets a day, providing approximately 9 grams of soluble and insoluble
fiber to add to your daily fiber intake from food sources. The average
American consumes about 12-15 grams of fiber a day and the appropriate
goal should be between 25 to 30 grams per day according to the American
Heart Association. It is soluble fiber that has the most profound affect
on reduction of LDL.
Since the average improvement required is between 10 to 18 grams per
day, the minimum recommended is 2 packets a day. You can use your own
estimated fiber shortfall to determine your individual requirements.
It should be noted that for people who start taking this product, some
people with sensitive bowels or with very low levels of current fiber
intake may have diarrhea for the first few days or even week after starting
this regimen. Two points: (1) if this occurs with you, cut back to 1/2
a packet for a few days, then build up to two or three packets gradually
over a 30 day period; (2) for most people, after a few weeks there will
be no further such issues as your body will have adjusted to the higher
levels of fiber in your system.
