BenaGene™ is stabilized oxaloacetic acid, the world's first novel and natural Krebs cycle intermediate compound that is specifically formulated to be highly stable and bioavailable so that a one-a-day dosage is all that is required. BenaGene offers the potential of longevity and vitality and is exclusively available in Canada from AOR.
Caloric restriction is the only method proven to extend human lifespan and health span. BenaGene is a novel caloric restriction mimetic (CR mimetic), mimicking up to 98% of the changes in the genetic expression of over 350 genes in a similar fashion to caloric restriction. While human trials on BenaGene’s effects on life extension have not been conducted, human clinical trials have confirmed both reduction in glucose levels and an improved uptake of glucose without negative side effects. BenaGene appears to down-regulate pathways that create and store fat. Mitochondrial and cellular DNA damage is also thought to exacerbate aging, and BenaGene both protects and repairs DNA.
Anyone who is interested in slowing down the aging process will want to consider taking BeneGene, as well as those who suffer from glucose imbalances. BenaGene is a perfect partner for resveratrol and other antioxidants, for even more powerful anti-aging effects.
BenaGene™ contains the first thermally stabilized oxaloacetate, a key compound in the body’s energy production cycle. benaGene™ provides antioxidants for the maintenance of good health

What is benaGene™?
benaGeneTM is thermally stabilized oxaloacetate, the world’s first novel and natural Krebs cycle intermediate compound that is specifically formulated to be highly stable and bioavailable so that a one-a-day dosage is all that is required, making its exciting health benefits easy to swallow.
The Key: A High NAD /NADH Ratio
NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a niacin-derived coenzyme that is present in all living cells and is critical to the production of ATP – the body’s primary source of all immediate energy. Higher NAD levels are thought to have a stimulatory effect on beneficial genes whilst a high NADH concentration is thought to inhibit beneficial genes. benaGeneTMappears to promote a high NAD /NADH ratio.
benaGene™, NAD and Oxidative Stress
benaGeneTM increases the conversion of NADH to NAD and also influences changes in the electrical state (Gibbs free energy) and critical signalling molecules. Oxaloacetate has also been found to prevent brain mitochondrial DNA damage in mice.
Oxaloacetate is not a well known nutritional supplement, but it shows ground-breaking potential in antioxidant research. benaGeneTM is thermally stabilized oxaloacetate, one of the first of its kind on the market.
benaGeneTM is a novel product at the pinnacle of antioxidant research. This product was introduced to Canada first by AOR in 2007 and is offered exclusively by AOR in Canada.
