Supplement FAQ: 10-Day Bio-Detox Kit

Why you may need the 10-Day Bio-Detox Kit:

All Healthcare Practitioners share common goals in regard to their patients; restore balance & homeostasis, and treat the underlying causes of pain, inflammation,and chronic health issues. One of the leading challenges to addressing these clinical goals is the presence of an overwhelming toxic load (endogenous and exogenous), which impairs many pathophysiological systems, including Phase I and Phase II conjugation, and excretion, and may contribute to dysbiosis, increased gut permeability, macronutrient and micronutrient imbalances, and multiple enzymatic imbalances. These widespread physiological disturbances impair the body’s ability to effectively handle health challenges, thus often resulting in chronic health issues which may prove to be resistant to traditional therapies.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends the 10-Day Bio-Detox Kit from Biotics Research:

The 10-Day BioDetox Kit was formulated with ease of use and patient compliance in mind. Great care went into the creation of this program whereby the liver-gastrointestinal connection and its resulting inflammation are addressed. Conveniently packaged, each 10-Day BioDetox Kit contains 2 bottles of NutriClear®,1 bottle of Whey Protein Isolate, 1 bottle of Bio-Detox Packs™ along with a shaker cup.

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: Hydro-Zyme™

Why you may need Hydro-Zyme™:

 Good health depends on adequate digestion. From a nutritional point of view, the level or quality of health can be traced to the level of digestive functioning. The stomach produces a variety of substances that promote digestion and assimilation; gastric juice contains hydrochloric acid and pepsinogens (precursors of the family of proteolytic enzymes called pepsins). Parietal cells produce both stomach acid and intrinsic factor, a protein required to bind vitamin B12 prior to its absorption in the small intestine. Not to solely single out vitamin B12, inadequate production of hydrochloric acid can result in impaired uptake or deficiency of all B-vitamins, potentially leading to muscle weakness and neurological deficit. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a strong mineral acid which functions to maintain gastric pH between 1.5 and 2.5. This acidity serves three important roles; low pH kills microorganisms in food, it activates pepsinogen, and it denatures proteins, making them more accessible to proteolytic degradation. While impaired digestion may result from mechanical means, such as improperly chewed food, it is far more likely to be the result of poor diet, nutritional deficiency (as a direct result of antacids and similar medications), or inadequate HCl production. Compounding this decline, the incidence of low stomach acid increases with age.  Studies estimating it impacts 30-60% of people over the age of 50. Among other things, functional deficits of HCl have been associated with gas, bloating, indigestion, malodorous breath and sweat excretions, anemias resulting from nutrient deficiency, leaky gut, food allergies, joint inflammation, hair loss, and environmental sensitivities.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Hydro-Zyme™ from Biotics Research:

Hydro-Zyme™ is yet another unique product brought to you by Biotics Research Corporation. Hydro-Zyme™ was specifically formulated to support optimal digestive functioning. Each tablet of Hydro-Zyme™ supplies a balanced mixture of vitamin B6, Betaine Hydrochloride, Glutamic acid, Ammonium Chloride, Pancreatin 4X, and Pepsin in our proprietary biologically active vegetable culture tableting base. The low cost and simple ease of use of Hydro-Zyme™ makes it a natural choice for practitioners to recommend for the support of optimal digestive function. As always, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: ADHS®

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®. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: B6 Phosphate

Why you may need B6 Phosphate:

Vitamin B6 is required for protein and essential fatty acid metabolism, for the liberation of glycogen stores, and for the production of various neurotransmitters. It is essential for the manufacture of the hemoglobin portion of red blood cells, and it is an important cofactor in over 60 different enzymatic reactions. Vitamin B6 deficiencies have been associated with a wide variety of issues including: carpal tunnel, trigger finger, joint pain, morning sickness of early pregnancy, burning or tingling in the extremities, joint nodules, apthous ulcers, cheilosis, depression, fatigue, sore tongue, flaky skin, and sensitivity to bright light. Low liver transamines and homocystinuria are two clinical findings which may indicate a need for additional B6 supplementation. Single B-vitamin deficiencies may not be the first thing that healthcare professionals consider when they have a patient that presents with any one of a number of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. However, it would be prudent for practitioners to evaluate their patients for B-vitamin deficiencies as they can initiate or exacerbate a plethora of health issues.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends B6 Phosphate from Biotics Research:

B6 Phosphate from Biotics Research Corporation contains the pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P5P) of vitamin B6, the most biologically active form of the nutrient. Alcohol intake dramatically increases the need for vitamin B6, furthermore a wide variety of drugs are known to induce deficiencies including certain antidepressants, hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives, diuretics, corticosteroids, tuberculosis medications, and some drugs marketed for rheumatoid arthritis. Smoking is detrimental to B6 stores. Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble nutrient that is particularly susceptible to processing. It has been estimated that as much as 70% of the nutrient is lost by freezing vegetables, 50-90% is lost by processing meat, and 50-90% is lost from the milling of grains, therefore those consuming a diet high is processed foods are not likely meeting their dietary requirements for vitamin B6.  Each tablet of B6 Phosphate supplies 20 mg of B6 as P5P along with our proprietary vegetable culture base providing 20 mcg each of superoxide dismutase and catalase. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: Thyrostim™

Why you may need Thyrostim™:

The thyroid gland is actually a collection of individual glands called follicles, where newly synthesized hormone is secreted prior to release into the bloodstream. In general, thyroid hormones refer to T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Though T4 is the main product, T3 is 3 to 4 times more active. T4 (with 4 atoms of iodine) is converted to T3 (with 3 atoms of iodine) via peripheral tissues, especially the liver and lung. Several factors, including low metabolic rate, falling blood pressure, and conditions that increase the need for energy such as a cold environment, hypoglycemia, pregnancy, or high altitude, stimulate the secretion of thyroid hormones. Varying degrees of low thyroid function are routinely detected by laboratory tests and other measures.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Thyrostim™ from Biotics Research:

The manufacture of thyroid hormones requires specific nutritional support. Thyrostim™’s broad spectrum formula was designed to provide these key nutrients. Take iodine for example; the common form of iodine in foods is iodide. At maximal activity, the thyroid can contain up to a 300-fold greater concentration of iodide than blood levels. Cells oxidize iodide to organically bound iodine, which is then chemically combined with tyrosine, an amino acid that is a protein building block. Each molecule of thyroid hormone contains the equivalent of two tyrosine molecules. Many other key nutrients are supplied by Thyrostim™ as well, such as selenium and magnesium, which are essential for healthy thyroid function. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to bring you “The Best of Science & Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: Iodine Supplements

Iodine is an essential trace mineral necessary for the production of thyroxine (T4).  Although approximately 80% of the dietary intake of iodine is sequestered by the thyroid gland, other tissues concentrate iodine as well. They include salivary glands, the gastric mucosa, the choroid plexus, mammary glands, and the ovaries. Iodine is often found lacking in the typical western diet. Consequently, as a result of decreased iodine status, sufficient thyroxine cannot be produced by some, negatively impacting thyroid function.

Liquid Iodine Forte™ is an innovative product brought to you by Biotics Research Corporation.This highly bioavailable source of supplemental iodine (as potassium iodide) in an aqueous form, allows the practitioner ultimate flexibility in dosing titration. Suitable for all population groups, Liquid Iodine Forte™ contains 150 mcg of iodine per drop, and can be taken on its own or readily mixed into a beverage of choice.

Iodizyme-HP™ is another innovative product brought to you by Biotics Research Corporation. This highly bioavailable source of supplemental iodine in a user friendly, scored tablet, allows the practitioner optimal flexibility in accurate dosing. Each 1/2 tablet supplies 6.25 mg of total Iodine/Iodide (as 2.5 mg Iodine and 3.75 mg Iodide) and is both practical and cost-effective.  Iodizyme-HP™ is made to the exacting standards you have come to expect from Biotics Research Corporation.

*Note: Iodizyme-HP™ is only offered for sale through healthcare professionals licensed to diagnose and treat.
