4Life Transfer Factor Cardio - why available under BCV name in Europe

4Life Transfer Factor Cardio - why available under BCV name in Europe

4Life Transfer Factor Cardio - why available as BCV in Europe In Europe, you can only legally buy 4Life Transfer Factor BCV, which is the equivalent of the US 4Life Transfer Factor Cardio. It is an original 4Life Research product, adapted to the requirements of the European market. See how.

Many of our customers learn about 4Life Transfer Factor dietary supplements from their friends in the USA, who praise these products as very effective. Among the particularly popular Transfer Factors in the USA is Transfer Factor Cardio, a supplement aimed at supporting the health of the circulatory system. In order to be able to distribute it in Europe, the manufacturer had to make some changes, including regarding the name of the product, as European law prohibits the advertising of dietary supplements in the context of therapeutic uses. The word "cardio" has been considered as a word that may suggest the medicinal properties of the preparation, therefore it has been replaced by the abbreviation BCV, which does not suggest such associations.

Another change that the manufacturer had to take into account in order to adapt the product to the requirements of European law was the reduction of the content of certain ingredients, e.g. vitamin E (in Poland, high doses of vitamin E are prescription only) or vitamin E. B12 and reducing the recommended daily dose. So in the American product we have 120 capsules, which are recommended to be consumed within a month, 4 capsules a day, and in the European one also 120 capsules, which are recommended to be used 1 a day, so according to the recommendations on the label, the package is enough for 4 months :) Below we present a table comparing the composition of both products.

Despite these efforts, 4Life Transfer Factor BCV still works very favourably, as reported by our clients from all over Europe :)

Note: we present past and new labels of the products.
