Supplement FAQ: Gammanol Forte™

Why you may need Gammanol Forte™:

Gamma oryzanol is a naturally occurring mixture of plant sterols and free transferulic acid esters derived from rice bran. Research indicates that gamma oryzanol has a plethora of functional effects. In addition to its best known actions of promoting increases in lean muscle mass and enhancing endorphin release, the sterol component of gamma oryzanol has noted effects on modified sterols such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, etc. It has been known to support normal, healthy cholesterol levels, provide support for those having hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, increase human growth hormone activity (as measured using insulin growth factor 1 [IGF-1]), and act as a potent antioxidant. It has also been shown to have a normalizing effect on gastric functioning, particularly on gastric and duodenal mucosa.

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

Not all gamma oryzanol is created equally. While gamma oryzanol may be sourced from corn or barley, Biotics Research chooses to use gamma oryzanol from rice bran, as it results in a superior product free from common allergens. Biotics Research Corporation processes gamma oryzanol utilizing a highly specialized fractionation process (FRAC®) that vastly improves the bioavailability of the ferulic acid component. In addition to this marked improvement in bioavailability is the synergistic effect with Gammanol Forte™’s combination of gamma oryzanol and FRAC®, with its proprietary tableting base. Laboratory findings reveal a combined antioxidant effect that is far superior to the antioxidant status of either constituent on its own. Collectively, Gammanol Forte™ may just be one of the most versatile supplements you’ve never heard about. As always, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: Bio-Allay®

Why you may need Bio-Allay®:

It has been said that our modern society can be termed an “Inflammation Nation”, with the vast majority of people living with some type of physical discomfort. Bio-Allay® contains a proprietary combination of three unique herbal extracts; White Willow (Salix alba), Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytumprocumbens), and Boswellia (Boswellia serrata gum) which collectively support comfort levels and promote enhanced activities of daily living. White Willow bark was the original source for the salicylates needed for the chemical manufacture of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), but clinicians should not be remiss in believing that White Willow is synonymous with acetylsalicylic acid. White Willow salicyclates have demonstrated inhibition of COX-2 transcription, a feature not noted in acetylsalicyclic acid. Additionally, anticoagulant and antiprostaglandin actions associated with acetylsalicyclic acid are not present with White Willow extract. Devil’s Claw has a long history of use for the support of musculoskeletal complaints.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Bio-Allay® from Biotics Research:

Over 12 clinical trials have been published on its use and all have found Devil’s Claw to be clinically valuable. Boswellia shows anti-inflammatory actions via the inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase, with no apparent effect on cyclooxygenase. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Boswellia was able to reduce swelling while increasing comfort, joint flexion, and walking distance in patients with wear and tear damage of the knees. Bio-Allay® is another fine example of leading-edge nutritional supplementation available exclusively from Biotics Research Corporation. The benefits from taking Bio-Allay® can often be noted within the first few doses, making it an excellent product to use with patients experiencing physical discomfort. Bio-Allay® is a safe and natural alternative to over-the-counter products, however it should be avoided by patients with a known sensitivity to aspirin or salicylates. As always, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature.

Supplement FAQ: KappArest™

Why you may need KappArest™:

Pain is one of the many things we humans share. And though pain may be subjective (we cannot judge each others level of it), inflammation is not. Inflammation is our body’s response to injury, real or perceived.

The inflammatory cascade is triggered by environmental stimuli such as injury, food or environmental allergens, viral infections, exposure to toxins and emotional stress, or poor diet. This leads to the activation of something called NF-KappaB, a protein complex that acts as an intracellular “amplifier” to promote the production of direct mediators of inflammation. These include such compounds as cytokines, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, nitric oxide and free radicals. If NF-KappaB is left unchecked, it can lead to pain, inflammation and even insulin resistance, and cardiovascular and autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, inflammation has become prevalent in our society, largely sue to the pro-inflammatory nature of the Standard American Diet (SAD) and the nutritional deficits resulting from it, our high stress lifestyles, and constant environmental insults.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends KappArest™ from Biotics Research:

Formulated in conjunction with Alex Vasquez, DC, ND, DO, KappArest™ was designed to inhibit the production of NF-KappaB. KappArest™ has been shown to have a positive impact on inflammatory mediators, and has demonstrated it ability to modulate inflammatory responses. Optimal EFAs® and Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® are two additional products available from Biotics Research Corporation that are commonly used in conjunction with KappArest™ for their synergistic action in downregulating pro-inflammatory mediators that impact systemic inflammation. Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature.”

Supplement FAQ: Bio-FCTS™

Why you may need Bio-FCTS™:

 Bioflavonoids are a class of plant metabolites usually noted for their yellow color.  They are commonly used for their wide variety of biological properties.  While bioflavonoids are most commonly referred to for their potent antioxidant properties, they have also been noted to provide positive support for the mediation of allergic and inflammatory responses.  Components of  Bio-FCTS™ are known to support immune function and protect against capillary fragility.  People with less than optimal diets or those consuming certain classes of medications including barbiturates, oral contraceptives, antibiotics, corticosteroids, or hormonal replacement therapy may have increased needs for vitamin C and bioflavonoids.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Bio-FCTS™ from Biotics Research:

Bio-FCTS™ is a fortified bioflavonoid product available exclusively through Biotics Research Corporation. Each capsule contains 100 mg of quercetin, 75 mg of vitamin C, and 440 mg of a proprietary blend of buckwheat culture, green tea extract (40% catechins), citrus bioflavonoids, neonatal thymus (bovine), and neonatal spleen (bovine). Although bioflavonoids are present in all botanicals, fruits, and vegetables – Bio-FCTS™ contains potent concentrations of phytonutrients and glandular sources specifically known for their bioactivity.  Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Supplement FAQ: IPS®

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

Supplement FAQ: IAG™

Why you may need IAG™:

Arabinogalactan is a unique polysaccharide from the cell wall of several different plants, but it is especially prevalent in the inner bark of the larch tree (a variety of pine tree). It has long been noted for its use as an effective prebiotic and dietary fiber, but more and more studies are showing that it deserves mention for its ability to promote the health of the immune system. It has been demonstrated to have immune modulating effects and it also stimulates natural killer (NK) cell activity, which has been linked in medical literature to be physiologically decreased in a number of chronic conditions, particularly those of viral or autoimmune natures. Pediatricians frequently recommend arabinogalactans to provide targeted dietary support for children who have frequent episodes of otitis media.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends IAG™ from Biotics Research:

Despite the fact that it is derived from trees, IAG™ is a mild, slightly sweet tasting powder.  It readily dissolves into water or juice and is a convenient choice for a wide variety of people, including young children and seniors who may be prohibited from taking pills or immune supportive herbal formulas.  In fact, IAG™ is so palatable, that if a child doesn’t see it being mixed into their juice – they usually won’t be able to detect its presence. Each bottle of IAG™ from Biotics Research Corporation contains 50 servings of arabinogalactans, making it both convenient and economical.  Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you “The Best of Science and Nature.

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 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®, 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”.
