Company History
Terra Biological LLC is a family business started in 2006 and headquartered in the biotechnology hotbed of San Diego, California. The initial product of the company, “benaGene” (Oxaloacetate) was first developed from research into the molecular pathways of the calorie restricted metabolic state. Working with researchers at UCSD, UCLA, and UC Riverside, we found that we were able to stimulate the same molecular pathways as calorie restriction with oxaloacetate, without actually reducing calorie intake. Currently, our unique formula holds over 10 patents, has undergone five clinical trials, and is sold all over the world (although we are still waiting for our first order from Antarctica).  benaGene can be ordered at www.benaGene.com

Our newest nutracuetical, “Jubilance” (Oxaloacetate), is for Emotional Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).  In randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials, Jubilance significantly improved anxiety, gloominess, perceived stress and irritation associated with PMS.   Jubilance can be ordered at www.Jubilance.com

Quality Assurance
All Terra Biological LLC products are manufactured in state-of-the art GMP facilities under strict quality control and environmental protection standards. Prior to product introduction safety studies, including GLP toxicity tests are run on our key product ingredients. The company takes full advantage of current bioscience knowledge and expertise as it continues to bring new compounds to the market, while working to continuously improve customer service and satisfaction.
