The Story of how BIO-FEN was accidentally discovered

The Story of how BIO-FEN was accidentally discovered

In 1979, Germany, a farmer in a small town had a bronchitis problem he couldn’t cure in spite of taking all kinds of medication, until his grandmother’s book on herbs and spices saved the day. An ancient herbal tea, reputed to help heal a number of ailments, caught his attention and he decided to try it.

Over the next few months he drank daily this “terrible tasting brew” and found it to be of great help, as his bronchitis disappeared. His hairdresser however discovered something else…the farmers thinning head of hair had shown new growth. First there was just fluff, but the fluff changed into strong, normal hair. What was the main thing responsible for this exciting new development? The tea! – Straight from his grandmothers book on herbs and spices.

Today, this same unique vitamin / herbal ingredients within the tea is what forms the basis of every BIO-FEN capsule.
