Phosphatidylserine

by Keith Steber

Why you may need Phosphatidylserine? Phosphatidylserine (PS), a naturally occurring phospholipid nutrient, is a component of cell membranes.  As such it serves as an essential constituent to the functioning of all cells in the body. PS is most concentrated in organs with high metabolic activity including the brain, lungs, heart, liver and skeletal muscle.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Phosphatidylserine? As a component of myelin, which is essential for the proper nervous system function, PS makes up a major part of the phospholipid concentration of the brain. As such, PS is supportive of brain function and may attenuate some of the negative neuronal effects of aging. A review of recent research shows that for older adults with moderate cognitive impairment, PS use consistently produced modest improvement in memory tests. Additionally, in a well designed, controlled clinical study of senior adults with mild cognitive impairment, when supplemented with 100 mg of PS daily for 6 months, subjects with relatively low baseline scores had significantly improved memory scores compared to baseline. PS has also been shown to support normalization of cortisol in response to stress.

Neutrophil Plus®

by Keith Steber

Why you may need Neutrophil Plus®: After review of your history and/or laboratory results, your healthcare provider may determine that you could benefit from targeted neutrophil support.  Neutrophils, one of the three types of granulocytic white blood cells (leukocytes), are the hallmark of acute inflammation. They serve as key components in the defense against infection and are the most abundant of the white blood cells.  Neutrophils are primarily associated with acute bacterial inflammation due to their ability to ingest microorganisms or particles.  However, neutrophil activity has also been correlated with coronary, pulmonary and other health functions.  Neutrophils, like all leukocytes, have a minimal life span, and thus a high turnover rate.  As such, they are extremely vulnerable to minor vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Neutrophil Plus®:  Neutrophil Plus® supplies a unique combination of select nutrients including vitamins, minerals and botanical constituents, along with RNA, to provide targeted support for neutrophils and their function. The complex interplay between multiple cell types and intercellular messengers makes nutritional status both subtle and far-reaching, particularly when it involves immune activation. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

HistoPlex-AB™

by Keith Steber

Why you may need HistoPlex-AB: From mid-spring and the onset of tree pollens, to late spring’s onset of weed pollens, followed by summer’s superfluous grass pollens, and a nearly year round onslaught of fungi and mould spores – allergic triggers are ubiquitous. Seasonal changes tend to exacerbate this. An estimated 40-50 million Americans suffer from airborne allergies. These tend to provoke responses such as respiratory symptoms, sinus congestion, nasal drainage, post-nasal drip, coughing, red, watery, runny eyes, and dark undereye circles.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends HistoPlex-ABfrom Biotics Research:

HistoPlex-AB is an innovative supplement that provides efficient, targeted support. The unique proprietary blend of standardized herbal extracts found in HistoPlex-AB™ shares the distinction of having immuno-modulating effects. Fritillaria thunbergii is known to have antitussive, astringent, and expectorant functions. It is a source of fritimine, which diminishes the excitability of respiratory centers. Solidago virgaurea, commonly known as European Goldenrod, and Scutellaria baicalensis both function to counteract proinflammatory mediators which may be “triggered” as the body responds to airborne irritation. Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright) has long been used to make improve eye pressure, itchiness, light sensitivity, swelling, and eye drainage. Morus alba is a source of quercetin 3 (6-malonylglucoside) (Q3MG), a flavonol glycoside which has known antioxidative and antiatherogenic protective effects. Saponins derive from the root of Platycodon grandiflorum have been
tudied for their multifarious properties including inhibiting Cox-2, TNF-a, and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) levels.

EFA-Sirt Supreme®

by Keith Steber

Why you may need EFA-Sirt Supreme®: Both cardiovascular health and blood lipid profiles are of increasing concern to many people. For optimal health, lifestyle modification may not be enough, and strategic supplementation may be warranted. EFA-Sirt Supreme® supplies a unique, highly concentrated essential fatty acid blend, providing an extremely effective relative combination of EPA, DHA and GLA, with all natural mixed tocopherols, specially formulated to be high in gamma (γ)-Tocopherol. A large amount of supportive scientific research shows that the consumption of Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Omega- 3 fatty acids support coronary heart function. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to affect platelet aggregation, blood viscosity, plasma levels of fibrinogen, PF4 and beta-thromboglobulin and capillary flow. These effects are believed to be functions of membrane fluidity. Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy blood lipid profiles, normal healthy blood pressure, stimulate Nitric Oxide (NO) and support healthy, normal blood sugar and insulin levels. Omega-3 fatty acids help to suppress ACE, TGA beta, SREBP and function as PPAR agonists. Additionally, Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation increases fatty acid oxidation, which research suggests helped to decrease adipose tissue and serves to improve endothelial function. DHA is not only essential for neural function, but it is an important component of cell membranes and supports normal healthy blood pressure. DHA is converted by several mechanisms into docosatrienes and resolvins, which have anti-inflammatory properties. According to current research, their activity may very well be due to the fatty acids effects modifying genetic expression. Gamma linolenic acid (GLA), the good Omega-6 fatty acid, is elongated to DGLA, the biologically active form from which eicosanoids are derived. DGLA metabolites reduce the formation of arachadonate-derived prostaglandins, leukotrienes, plateletactivating factors, and supports normal healthy blood pressure. Collectively, this superior combination of essential fatty acids provide a balance of key nutrients that current research has shown to support healthy cardiovascular function.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends EFA-Sirt Supreme® from Biotics Research:
Following several years of research and clinical evaluations, Dr. Mark Houston, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School and Director of the Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology in Nashville, in conjunction with scientists at Biotics Research Corporation,
developed a unique essential fatty acid supplement: EFA-Sirt Supreme®. Each serving of
EFA-Sirt Supreme® supplies, on average, 750 mg of GLA, 900 mg of EPA, and 600 mg of DHA, making it a superior fatty acid supplement and an ideal adjunct to other products such as VasculoSirt®ResveraSirt-HP®, Bio-CardioSirt-BP™ and CoQ-Zyme 100 Plus™. This unique EFA blend is available exclusively through Biotics Research Corp. As always, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Bio-Cardio Sirt BP™

by Keith Steber

Blood pressure generally increases with age as a consequence of the interaction of our environment, genetics and lifestyle, including exercise and the dietary intake of macro and micronutrients. Because high blood pressure or “Hypertension” is rarely accompanied by symptoms, it often goes undetected. If left uncheck, it will increase the risk of cardiovascular disease including heart failure, stroke and aortic anurysms, as well as cognitive impairment and kidney disease.

Bio-CardioSirt BP™ was developed by Biotics Research Corporation in conjunction with Dr. Mark Houston, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Director of the Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology at Saint Thomas Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.

Bio-CardioSirt BP™ supplies a unique (patent pending) combination of key micronutrients that have been clinically proven to support normal, healthy blood pressure levels, and its benefits have been published in a peer reviewed clinical journal*. The nutrients supplied by Bio-CardioSirt BP™ include important antioxidants that help maintain the unsaturation/saturation ratio of fatty acids, support the biosynthesis of collagen and certain neurotransmitters, and function in the regulation of nitric oxide (NO) release. NO plays an important physiological role in cardiovascular function as a modulator of vascular relaxation (vasodilation). Other components help regulate calcium absorption and metabolism, and are required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis, and are key for the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, which is important in nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction and normal heart rhythm.

Bio-CardioSirt BP™ comes as an easy to take, pleasant tasting powder, and is very cost effective as well. Benefits can be seen in as little as two weeks. Each container provides a full 30 day supply.

Gastrazyme™

by Keith Steber

Why you may need Gastrazyme™: From a nutritional point of view, the gastrointestinal tract is
considered one of, if not the, most important organs in the body. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract is paramount in achieving optimal health, as poor digestion can cause a multitude of seemingly unrelated problems.Nutritional health and gastrointestinal health are therefore closely correlated. Gastrazyme™ combines a number of nutritional components intended to support healthy digestive functioning, including vitamin A, gamma oryzanol, chlorophyllins, vitamin U complex, superoxide dismutase and catalase. Early studies recognized the effectiveness of raw cabbage juice in normalizing gastric and intestinal functioning. Glutamine and methionine derivatives present in the juice are believed to be the active principals. Specific attention has been focused on methionine S-methyl sulfonium (MMS) in the chlorinated form. Traditionally, this compound (MMS) has been referred to as “Vitamin U”, although it does not meet the classic definition of a vitamin. MMS has a variety of documented effects including stimulating the formation of gastric mucous, serving as an antioxidant, and acting as a methyl donor for a variety of acceptors. One study concluded that MMS supported the normal healing process of the stomach following exposure to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDS). Due to the high turnover rate of the gastrointestinal mucosa, vitamin A need is significantly increased. Inadequate vitamin A status has also been correlated with impaired barrier function of the GI tract, as well as immune system impairment. Gamma Oryzanol is a naturally occurring mixture of plant sterols and transferulic acid esters derived from rice bran. It has marked antioxidant properties and has been shown in studies to normalize intestinal function. Chlorophyllin, a derivative of chlorophyll, is also a known antioxidant. In addition, it maintains the ability to bind divalent metal ions, and protect DNA.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Gastrazyme™: While there are many different GI formulas available commercially, only Gastrazyme™ provides such a unique blend of scientifically proven nutrients, most from their ideal, natural sources. Cabbage juice supplies vitamin U complex (as DL-methionine methylsulfonium chloride). Mulberry leaves supply chlorophyllins and vitamin A is supplied as natural mixed carotenoids and palmitate. Gamma Oryzanol is not only derived from the far superior rice bran oil, but is combined in our proprietary tableting base which creates a synergistic antioxidant effect. Gastrazyme™ provides superior nutritional support for healthy gastrointestinal function.
