Why you may need BioDoph-7 Plus®: It is estimated that ~80% of the immune system is found in the gut, and the human body contains more bacteria living inside it than it has individual cells: 100 trillion microorganisms live in the gastrointestinal tract as compared with a mere 10 trillion human cells in the entire body. This means that there are 10X more cells of bacteria living in our intestines than what we possess in all of our bodily tissues put together. The majority of these bacterial strains are beneficial and are important for the development of the immune system. However, periods of stress or illness, fever, diarrhea, diet, the use of certain pharmaceuticals, and surgery can all cause an imbalance of these good bacteria and let bad or opportunistic bacteria and yeasts flourish – which negatively impacts health. Unfortunately, far too many people suffer from some degree of bowel dysbiosis, which can manifest as allergic responses, dermal irritation, fatigue, mood alterations, headaches, leaky gut, GI distress, etc. Now further evidence indicates that obesity, as well as neurodegenerative and other autoimmune conditions, are linked to altered gut microflora. Given the prevalence of people that experience one or more of these symptoms, BioDoph-7 Plus® has the potential to an unsung hero of overall health support.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends BioDoph-7 Plus® from Biotics Research:
The modern dilemma is that allergies and chronic health conditions are on the rise. Antibacterial soaps, washes, and wipes, chronic dehydration, mercury amalgams, total toxin load, drugs, and nutrient deficient diets have become a scourge on friendly bacteria. Documented research has indicated important benefits associated with the use of probiotic bacteria, including improved digestion, enzymatic activity, and overall modulating effects on the immune system. Formulated in collaboration with Dr. Gary Lasneski,
BioDoph-7 Plus® contains a specific blend of 3 prebiotics and 7 probiotics to ensure optimal colonization with bacterial strains recognized for their bioactivity.

Why you may need Optimal EFAs Caps®: The consumption of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) is absolutely required for optimal health. In addition to being required for the formation of cell membranes, EFAs are essential for cerebral and neurological development and functioning. EFAs are also required for the production of hormone-like substances called Eicosanoids which are collectively responsible for regulating blood pressure and blood viscosity, along with immune and inflammatory responses. EFA imbalances are very common in modern societies, particularly for/in those whose diet is over-reliant on grains or in those who consume an abundance of processed foods containing artificial ingredients or hydrogenated fats, in other words the Standard American Diet (SAD). EFA deficits generally occur in combination, therefore supplementation with a balanced combination of EFAs makes sense. Mood and memory alterations, neurological issues, high blood pressure, coagulation issues, altered cholesterol panels, slow wound healing, impaired growth, immune and mental deficiencies, and poor vision have all been clinically associated with EFA deficiency. Deficiencies are also associated with a wide variety of dermatological complaints – everything from dry or itchy skin, eczema, psoriasis, hemorrhagic, scaly or idiopathic dermatitis, folliculitis, skin atrophy, and edema. Children, seniors, and those consuming altered or unbalanced diets are especially prone to EFA deficiency.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Optimal EFAs Caps® from Biotics Research: Optimal EFAs Caps® was strategically formulated with noted researcher and author, Dr. Alex Vasquez, DC, ND, DO to provide an ideal balance of Omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids.

Why you may need Bio-Detox Packs™: Optimum energy and radiant health are the products of
internal cleansing. There is no doubt about it, we do not live in a pristine world. We live in an environment unlike any in history. In today’s world of processed foods and environmental pollution, toxic substances exist almost everywhere. According to the FDA, over 35% of the food tested in 1998 contained pesticide residues. Fifty-three pesticides classified as “carcinogens” are presently registered for use on major crops, including apples, tomatoes, and potatoes. Additionally, more than 10,000 additives are added to our food supply. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 1,000,000 Americans drink water laced with pesticides. The detoxification process is critically dependent on an adequate amount of nutrition: specific vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. Without these specific nutrients, the liver cannot eliminate toxins. Without elimination, these stored toxins may be slowly released into the blood, contributing to many chronic illnesses, including some cancers.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Bio-Detox Packs™: Bio-Detox Packs™
are conveniently packaged to provide the necessary supplementation to safely and effectively support the elimination of toxins from the body. Each bottle of 30 packs provides a 10 day supply of specially formulated products designed to target a specific area of the detoxification process, including digestive and biliary function, hepatic function including phase 1 & phase 2 enzyme systems, as well as protective support against unwanted microorganisms.

The pancreas possesses two major secretory glands, and consequently possesses dual functions, that of an exocrine and an endocrine gland. As an exocrine gland it serves to secrete the major digestive enzymes amylase, protease and lipase, which function to digest starches, proteins, and fats, respectively. In addition to these, the pancreas also secretes trypsin, chymotrypsin and carboxypeptidase.
Exocrine insufficiency is characterized by deficiency or absence of these three major pancreatic digestive enzymes. Deficiencies in one or all three of these enzymes prevent the normal break down and absorption of food, leading to maldigestion and nutrient malabsorption. The classic clinical manifestations of exocrine insufficiency are malnutrition, abdominal cramps, and steatorrhea. Additionally, pancreatic enzyme deficiency has been associated with an increased risk of intestinal infection. Adults with pancreatitis or other pancreatic deficiencies may present with weight loss, anorexia, greasy, bulky or foul-smelling stools (due to steatorrhea), abdominal distention, and flatus (gas). Supplementation in individuals with pancreatic exocrine deficiency or insufficiency may serve to achieve a normal nutritional status. Because of its digestive nature, Bio-6-Plus™ may also act as a beneficial aide in the thinning of mucous. In a published randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with patient’s diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis, significant efficacy was demonstrated with enzyme preparations in reducing fat excretion, decreasing stool frequency and improving stool consistency.
Bio-6-Plus™ supplies porcine derived raw pancreas concentrate, which provides 50,000 NF units of amylase, 9,300 NF units of lipase and 50,000 NF units of protease. It also supplies Superoxide Dismutase and Catalase from Biotics Research’s own proprietary tableting base.1 Comment

Why you may need ADHS®: The word stress, coined over seventy years ago by Hans Selye, is one word which has become synonymous with the American lifestyle. Americans lead “stressed out” lives as a result of increased daily demands, including job and lifestyle pressures. Dysregulation of the stress system, or a maladaptive neuroendocrine response, has the potential to negatively impact endocrine, metabolic and immune function, leaving patients vulnerable to numerous unwanted health consequences. Additionally, stress increases the need for many nutrients. An extensive body of research provides significant insights into the benefits of providing targeted nutritional support for healthy adrenal function.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends ADHS® from Biotics Research: ADHS®, could be an acronym for ADrenal HyperSecretion. ADHS® is a comprehensive and effective adaptogenic formula, providing selective botanical extracts, with pertinent vitamins and minerals. ADHS® serves to replenish nutrients depleted by the stress response, thereby positively supporting adrenal function. ADHS® is frequently used in combination with other Biotics Research products, including Optimal EFAs®, Cytozyme PT/HPT™, Bio-Glycozyme Forte™ or GlucoBalance®. Following their evaluation, your healthcare professional may recommend adjunctive support for your specific needs.

Why you may need IPS®: IPS® is a comprehensive Intestinal Permeability Support supplement. With a total surface area larger than the size of a tennis court, the intestine represents the major interface between the body and the environment. This huge area is designed to assure efficient uptake of nutrients and paradoxically, it must simultaneously exclude many substances such as microorganisms, toxins, food allergens, and endotoxins in order to maintain health. As the largest immune organ with a full compliment of immune cells (T cells, B cells, mast cells and macrophages), the intestine secretes large amounts of a specific antibody, secretory IgA (sIgA), which binds specifically to antigens and microorganisms, and
prevents their uptake in the gut. Imbalanced immune function can alter intestinal permeability due to inflammation, decreased sIgA, stress, and decreased nutritional status. When the intestinal epithelium becomes injured or compromised, leaks or gaps in the mucosa may develop. These gaps may allow allergens and foreign proteins to leak into the bloodstream, and allergic symptoms or chronic health challenges may result.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends IPS® from Biotics Research: IPS® is a unique formula that was designed to address the specific issue of altered intestinal permeability, supplying a comprehensive array of nutritional factors to support healthy intestinal function. L-Glutamine is an amino acid which plays a major role in the health of the immune system and the digestive tract. D-Glucosamine sulfate is an amino sugar which is a key building block in connective tissue and the lining of the intestines. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, glutathione levels are linked with healthy (anti) aging and proper immune function. Gamma oryzanol supports the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and helps balance pro-inflammatory mediators. Tillandsia helps to support healthy intestinal mucosa, and Jerusalem artichoke is a fructooligosaccaride which has been shown to promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Collectively, the components of IPS not only promote gastrointestinal health, but they also are supportive of overall immune system function.
