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”.

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. Practitioners instruct their patients to follow an “anti-inflammatory” diet (included), and consume the 10-Day BioDetox Kit as follows:

Breakfast: 2 scoops NutriClear®, 1 scoop Whey Protein Isolate, and 1 packet Bio-Detox Packs™
Lunch: Light, healthy lunch and 1 packet Bio-Detox Packs™
Mid-Afternoon Snack: 2 scoops NutriClear® and 1 scoop Whey Protein Isolate

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”.
