Supplement FAQ: Biomega-3 Liquid™

Why you may need Biomega-3 Liquid™:

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, or healthy fats, that are required for a number of bodily processes. The body can not manufacture omega 3 fatty acids from other nutrients, hence the ‘essential’ distinction. In addition to their well known role in promoting heart health, omega 3 fatty acids serve a number of basic biological roles; they are crucial for the structure and function of cellular membranes, they play a role in cellular and neurological signaling, they act as hormone precursors, and they aide in the regulation of nutrient uptake and excretion at the cellular level. On a globally functional level, they are key in reducing inflammation, supporting normal
cholesterol and triglyceride levels, regulating brain and neurological function, and regulating gene expression. Omega-3 fatty acid deficiency has been associated with a wide variety of health complaints including obesity, ADD, ADHD, and similar spectrum disorders, inflammatory disorders, adrenal and/or thyroid hypofunction, skin issues, including eczema, psoriasis, and generalized dermatitis, cardiovascular issues, cognitive breakdown, and autoimmune disorders.

 

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Biomega-3 Liquid™ from Biotics Research:

While it is true that omega-3 fatty acids can be found in a variety of sources, most commercial ones are limited to comprising of fish oil or flax seed oil. Not all omega-3 fatty acids are absorbed equally though, and omega-3 fatty acids found in flax are not the same as omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil. While the body does have the capability of converting linolenic acid to EPA and DHA, the process is highly ineffective and the health benefits noted in population studies over the consumption of fish oil has not been noted amongst flax-consuming populations. One of the valid concerns about using fish oil supplements however, is pollution and contamination. There are a lot of fish oil supplements on the market that contain environmental toxins and heavy metals. Additionally, the peroxidase levels of many of the products that we have tested are high, indicating that rancid fish oil is routinely being marketed by some of our competitors. Biotics Research uses only small, deep, cold water fish such as anchovies and sardines to avoid toxins that are found in accumulation in larger fish, and a comprehensive microbiological and heavy metal screening is run on all lots of Biomega-3™ Liquid to ensure that our customers receive the finest quality marine lipids available. Biotics Research is dedicated to supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: C/Cal/Mag Powder™

Why you may need C/Cal/Mag Powder™:

Calcium and magnesium are both macrominerals which play indispensable roles in a wide variety of metabolic functions in the human body. Unfortunately, the dietary intake of calcium and magnesium tends to be low in the general diet. While low intakes affect all populations, greater significance is seen in post-menopausal women and the elderly. Additionally, the dietary requirement for young children and adolescent girls is elevated, due to their increased requirement for skeletal growth and to maximize bone health. Lastly, diuretics, certain antibiotics, antacids, anticoagulants, corticosteroids, statins, and oral contraceptives may all lower calcium and/ or magnesium status. 99% of the body’s supply of calcium can be located in skeletal tissues such as bone and teeth, while the remaining 1% is found in blood, muscle, and interstitial fluids. Similarly, 60-65% of magnesium is located in bone, ~27% is intramuscular, and ~7% is found in other cell types and bodily fluids. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, and is required for a wide range of essential metabolic reactions. As the antioxidant ascorbate, it protects the body against oxidative stress, acts as a detoxifier, and is a vital component in the function of the immune system.

 

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends C/Cal/Mag Powder™ from Biotics Research:

C/Cal/MagTM Powder supplies 400 mg of elemental calcium, 200 mg of elemental magnesium, and 180 mg of vitamin C per serving. The inclusion of vitamin C to the formulation provides the added benefits of a key antioxidant, as well as enhanced calcium availability. The addition of glucose polymers also enhances absorption. The normal absorption of calcium salts ranges from 7-18%. One study (Kelly, et al:, Gastroenterology 87:596-600, 1984) determined that calcium absorption increased from two to five times, in both normal and dysfunctional digestive tracts, with the inclusion of glucose polymers. Supplied as a naturally flavored powder, C/Cal/MagTM Powder offers the advantages of being highly soluble, easily swallowed and readily absorbed. C/Cal/MagTM Powder is easy to administer to children, adolescents, and seniors alike, by adding it to water or juice. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature.

Supplement FAQ: Aqueous Multi-Plus™

Why you may need Aqueous Multi-Plus™:

For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Taking a broad-spectrum multivitamin/multi-mineral formula may help ensure the presence of those essential nutrients necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions. A deficiency in any one essential vitamin or mineral causes breakdown of metabolic pathways and leads to decreased performance in energy, strength and cognitive functions and presents the very real danger of illness. Your body cannot make its own vitamins – you must get them through the food you eat. This holds particularly true for children who have greater demands for these nutrients as they are still growing and developing. Your child would need to consume at least 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day to fulfill this requirement. For many different reasons, very few children can get all the vitamins they need from their diet. Additionally recent reports have shown that most fruits and vegetables today contain 50% to 75% less vitamins and minerals than they did 40 years ago, suggesting that the 5-7 servings actually needs to be doubled or even tripled. What child is capable of this? In view of all this, in 2002 the American Medical Association recommended that everyone should supplement with a daily multi-vitamin to guarantee that they get all the vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy as they age.

 

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Aqueous Multi-Plus™ from Biotics Research:

Aqueous Multi-Plus™ is a great tasting, easy to take liquid, multivitamin mineral formula with all the essential B vitamins (except folic acid), vitamins A, C, D and E with calcium, magnesium and other minerals,  It is highly suitable for children and those adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules.  Aqueous Multi-Plus™ exemplifies the type of innovation, consideration and quality you and your healthcare professional can expect from Biotics Research Corporation.

Supplement FAQ: Bio-D-Mulsion Forte®

Why you may need Bio-D-Mulsion Forte®:

Vitamin D is an essential co-factor in bone health.  Among several other properties, vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, both of which are needed for bone health.  Additionally, vitamin D regulates blood serum levels of these two minerals to maintain adequate mineralization of bone, bone growth and bone remodeling.  Researchers from the Harvard Medical School published results of a large-scale study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in February of 2003,confirming that there was a significantly lower risk of hip fractures only in individuals with a higher intake of calcium coupled with a higher intake of vitamin D. Vitamin D also plays several other important roles in human health including regulation of hormonal functions, modulation of neuromuscular and immune functions, reduction of inflammation, and proper gene encoding.

 

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® from Biotics Research:

Vitamin D deficiency is common in the US, and more common in the elderly.  It is known that the farther away from the equator you live the more at risk you are.  Even worse, a recent study found that approximately 70% of the population of Phoenix AZ had sub-optimal levels of vitamin D.  If you wear sunscreen of SPF 8 or more, it is very unlikely that your skin is able to convert sunlight into vitamin D at all.  A report published by Danish researchers in March 2004 showed that daily supplementation of vitamin D can reduce the risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis. A recent study conducted at Children’s Hospital Boston, found that Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® was safe and effective for infants and toddlers. Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® was shown to be highly bio-available, as effective as the pharmaceutical preparations it was compared to, and easier to administer. Additionally, Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® is far more cost effective. Clinical studies have shown Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® to be safe and effective for healthy adults, infants and children, as well as for those suffering from prostate cancer. Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® employs Biotics Research’s unique, all natural micro-emulsification, which greatly enhances the uptake and utilization, and is especially important for those having impaired digestive function.  This is another example of leading-edge innovation from Biotics Research Corporation, bringing you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: Lipid-Sirt®

Why you may need Lipid-Sirt®:

Hyperlipidemia is a key factor associated with an increased risk of the development of cardiovascular disease.  Also referred to as high cholesterol, dyslipidemia, and lipid disorder, hyperlipidemia is a condition by which unhealthy levels of cholesterol circulate in the blood.  The human body obtains cholesterol in two ways: up to 80% of the cholesterol is produced endogenously in the liver; the remainder is obtained from the diet in the form of animal products.  While there is not a readily accepted level of cholesterol in the human body that is considered ‘safe’, most clinical guidelines list Total Cholesterol levels under 200 mg/dl as desirable.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Lipid-Sirt® from Biotics Research:

Lipid-Sirt® was developed to lower cholesterol* and was formulated in collaboration with Dr. Mark Houston, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School and Director of Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology in Nashville, TN.  Each serving of Lipid-Sirt®  supplies: 450 mg of Pantethine.  Pantethine may increase levels of Enzyme CoA, which can increase the beta oxidation of fatty acids directly, and its metabolite cysteamine may decrease the hepatic synthesis of cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-Co reductase. 400 mg of plant sterols (from soybean) are also included as they have been shown to reduce the intestinal absorption of cholesterol by 30-40%, significantly lowering LDL cholesterol.*  Green tea consumption has been associated with a reduced mortality due to all causes and due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), so 300 mg of green tea leaf extract (standardized to 50% EGCG) has also been included in Lipid-Sirt® .  EGCG possesses the most potent antioxidant activity of the green tea polyphenols and may support cardiovascular function in several ways, including being a potent antioxidant, thereby reducing LDL and VLDL oxidation, and by improving endothelium-dependant flow mediated dilation in patients with endothelial dysfunction.  37.5 mg of Delta-tocotrienol (from annatto seed) is included, as studies have demonstrated that tocotrienols may inhibit the progression of atherosclerotic lesions in mice.  Delta-tocotrienols specifically were found to possess the greatest ability to inhibit cholesterol synthesis.  Lastly, 2.5 mg of Phytolens® is provided as polymeric proanthocyanidin which has been shown to increase endothelial nitric oxide synthase to a greater extent than monomers in aortic endothelial cells.  As  one of the latest addition to Biotics Research’s hugely popular Sirtuins line of cardiovascular and anti-aging products, Lipid-Sirt®  is a safe and effective product for the support and management of hyperlipidemia.*  Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature.

Recommendation: 1 serving (4 capsules) taken twice daily with meals, or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.  Each bottle of Lipid-Sirt®  provides a full 30 day supply.

* Foods and dietary supplements containing at least 400 mg per serving of free phytosterols taken twice a day with meals for a total intake of at least 800 mg, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

Supplement FAQ: EFA-Sirt Supreme®

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 a variety of 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 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 may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.  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 the 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 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 stand alone product or adjunct to VasculoSirt®, ResveraSirt-HP®, and CoQ-Zyme 30™.  This unique EFA blend is available exclusively through Biotics Research Corp.  As always, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: Intenzyme Forte™

Why you may need Intenzyme Forte™:

Health researchers are continually discovering that inflammation and its effects are at the root of many illnesses and disease processes.  In fact, most chronic health challenges involve some degree of inflammation.  But acknowledging inflammation and addressing it are two very different entities.  Since inflammation can be caused from such a wide variety of factors – everything from physical wear and tear, diet,environmental factors, genetics, and even local or systemic allergies, it can be difficult to find an easy way to address it.  Intenzyme Forte is a potent source of both plant and animal based enzymes that are an effective combination to break down the aberrant proteins associated with inflammation, hence the term “proteolytic enzymes”.  Proteolytic enzymes provide all-natural and highly effective support for systemic or localized inflammation and discomfort such as muscle soreness.  The key, however, is that in order to benefit from enzymes proteolytic actions; it must be taken on an empty stomach. If taken with food, the enzyme will work as a digestive aid instead.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Intenzyme Forte™ from Biotics Research:

Intenzyme Forte™ is a broad spectrum nutritional supplement capable of exerting influence over a variety of physiological and biochemical mechanisms, including: inflammatory processes, numerous pathways of protein metabolism, hormone processing, digestive processes, food sensitivities, immune system support, and healthy circulatory system support.  Intenzyme Forte™ also has the ability to break down mucous secretions as well. For over 30 years, thousands of healthcare practitioners have relied on the safe, effective, and reliable results that Intenzyme Forte™ has to offer.  As always, you can count on Biotics Research to offer superior nutritional products that supply “The Best of Science and Nature”.
