Hi Doc

Can you please tell me if Bioplus has a negative effect on your Kidneys or Liver??

I've tried all the other energy tonics, and none of them work for me. Bioplus works like a miracle. I take only 2 medicine measures in the morning but not on weekends.

People at work say that it is not good for my health and they developed problems with their kidneys and liver after using Bioplus. Is there any truth in this?

Is there anything else similar to Bioplus that you can recommend?

Thanks for your time.

Dear Oogies
Bioplus just contains high levels of caffeiene which can have as side effects:
nervousness, irritability, anxiety, muscle twitching, sleeplessness headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, drowsiness, dry mouth, flushed dry skin, need to go to the toilet often, loss of appetite, nausea, stomachaches and heart palpitations.

No there is not something similar I can recommend. 10 ml Bioplus contains 180 mg caffeine, about the equivalent of two cups of strong coffee. If you don't drink lots of coffee or tea or caffeiene drinks during the day, this should be ok.

When taking bio plus I would recommend just taking a sip or using the recommended dosage but it's a bit strong but I'm sure that drinking water would make the dosage weaker but otherwise it would provide the same effect

Judging by the questions being posted, it seems most people are not aware that the liquid package contains 10% Alcohol. This is obviously very concerning when we are allowing our children to use this product. The manufacturers or package agents are negligent as there is no warning to this affect. As a recovering alcoholic my self, this is potential very dangerous, therefore warnings need to be printed on the package as well age restrictions. I have found that Berocca liquid energy boost is alcohol free, it contains natural ingredients and is most effective. It is labelled. Not suitable for children under the age of 12. For me I personally think is is a much safer product.

hi Doctor, any time when I am reading I feel sleepy, I can only study for 2 hours a day and go to sleep. In 2010, I used bioplus and it worked wonders for me. I think I now need it most because of workload at hand now. please advice me about the dose I should take a day. I would rather stop drinking coffee, thank you

You can study for a couple of hours, but unfortunately after that you start too loose concentration. Getting enough sleep is much more effective than taking supplements to stay awake longer.

Hi there I'm no doctor but I know for fact that taking to much bioplus does effect your sleep so if your struggling to sleep I would recommend u too not take it so often as the lack of sleep can effect your immune system

Does bioplus booster have anything to do with runny eyes? Tears coming out automatically especially during the night?

When you use Bioplus during study time, I would advise that you drink lots of water. Besides drinking lots of water is actually the best supplement during study times.

I've read the side effects of cafeine above, are they just short-lived or may cause permanent damage? Please reply to Duncan:

The side effects are the same. It does not matter the quantity that you buy, it's the amount of intake. Th side effect are minimal. I would advice that you have lots of water during study time.

I have been drinking a bioplus sachet almost every day for 3 weeks. I am 3 months pregnant so will that give my unborn baby alcohol syndrome? Please give me some advise as I feel terrified of harming my unborn baby.

Dear Dr what if i use bio-plus occasionally not every day, maybe say twice or thrice a week. am i still in danger of the side effects you mentioned above? (nervousness, irritability, anxiety, muscle twitching, sleeplessness headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, drowsiness, dry mouth, flushed dry skin, need to go to the toilet often, loss of appetite, nausea, stomachaches and heart palpitations.)

If you drink bioplus before you go to work and when you arrive at work and they test you with an alcohol breath test will it show positive

Yes it will test positive if you do the test immediately after consuming bioplus, but rinse your mouth with water and wait 5 to 10 minutes and there wont be a reading.

Have your say
