Biotics Research Corporation - Mg-Zyme Magnesium Complex - 100 Capsule
MgZyme Biotics Research is a source of supplemental magnesium, supplied as mixed mineral chelates. Adequate magnesium intake is of utmost importance, as it is critical to most ATP-dependent reactions. Magnesium is important for musculoskeletal health, proper cardiac and immune function, and the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels. Dietary intakes below recommended levels are common.
Magnesium is abundantly present in nature at the center of plant heme as it is needed extensively to carry out the many functions dependant on it. Too often the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables which contain the necessary magnesium are not ingested. Mg-Zyme is a good way to quickly help reestablish this needed mineral nutrient by starting with four tablets at bed time and increasing to bowel tolerance.
Why you may need Mg-Zyme.
Magnesium (Mg) is a macromineral which plays an indispensable role in a wide variety of metabolic functions in the human body. In fact, it is difficult to find a metabolic process which does not require magnesium. Of the approx. 25 grams of Mg found in the human body, ~60-65% is located in bone, ~27% is intramuscular, and ~7% is found in other cell types and bodily fluids. Over 300 known & distinct different essential enzymatic reactions in the body require Mg. Energy production, including fat and carbohydrate metabolism as well ATP production are Mg dependent. RNA and DNA synthesis also require the presence of Mg. Structurally, Mg is crucial, as it is part of the bone’s crystal lattice. It is also found in concentration on the cortical surface of bones where it is believed to be stored until it is needed during times of deficiency. The cardiovascular system, nervous system, muscles, kidneys, liver, brain, hormone secreting glands, and gastrointestinal tract all rely on Mg for their metabolic function. Due to this pervasiveness, deficiency symptoms can widely vary. Some of the most common presentations associated with Mg deficiency include: hypomagnesemia, hypocalcemia, hypoglycemia, elevated serum fats, increased blood pressure, muscle weakness, tremor, and spasm. A softening or weakening of bone, headaches, nausea and vomiting have also been noted. Decreased absorption of Mg has been associated with individuals with gastrointestinal dysfunction, renal impairment, alcoholism, glucose metabolism disorders, and also with seniors. Diuretics, certain antibiotics, anticoagulants, corticosteroids, and oral contraceptives may all lower magnesium status. Consuming a diet high in cooked foods, fiber, or excess zinc may also impair Mg absorption.
Why your Healthcare Professional recommends Mg-Zyme from Biotics Research Corporation?
‘Chelated’ and ‘Non-chelated’ are the two basic forms of Mg found in dietary supplements. In the case of Mg, the most common chelates fall into the category of amino acid chelates, where the Mg molecule is attached to an amino acid building block. There is some research that indicates that chelated Mg (i.e. magnesium glycinate, magnesium aspartate, etc.) is better absorbed than many non-chelated forms such as magnesium oxide. Biotics Research Corporation has formulated Mg-Zyme with an ideal blend of three forms of magnesium recognized for their bioavailability and decreased risk of gastric distress. These forms include magnesium aspartate, magnesium gluconate, and magnesium glycinate, and make Mg-Zyme an exceptional formula for neuromusculoskeletal health. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

Currently, it is believed that gluten sensitivity (gluten intolerance) effects almost 700 million people
worldwide. Gluten intolerance covers a wide spectrum of conditions, including celiac disease and wheat allergy.
Symptoms include bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain, diarrhea, headaches and migraines, lethargy, attention-
deficit disorder, muscular disturbances, bone and joint pain, and even schizophrenia.
At Biotics Research, they provide superior nutritional supplements to benefit the patient health. ALL
BIOTICS RESEARCH PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE and they always have been! With Biotics Research, there's no
need to search through a catalog for all of the ingredients, or review label after label. You can use any product

Quality Control - What Sets Biotics Apart
The Biotics Research way!
At Biotics Research Corporation, we manufacture our own branded products on site, in our own state
of the art facilities, allowing for complete control of the entire manufacturing process. In our on-site
laboratories, the highly skilled members of our Quality Control Unit, utilize modern, sophisticated technologies
and validated analytical methods to test incoming raw materials, monitor manufacturing processes, perform in-
process testing, and test all finished products prior to their release for shipment. In fact, many aspects of our
cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) exceed the new, recently enacted FDA guidelines for dietary
supplements in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our products.
The Quality Control Unit (QCU) has the authority to approve and/or reject all specifications and procedures
associated with the production and release of all raw materials, packaging materials and finished products,
including test methods and results, instrument calibrations, and processing records. The QCU conducts all internal
audits, and validates and audits all raw material and packaging suppliers and service vendors as well.
All incoming raw materials are subject to appropriate testing prior to their release for production. Tests
conducted include identity, potency, biological activity, microbiological, including bacteria, yeast and mold
(including aflatoxins) and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury). Retained samples are maintained of
all raw materials and finished products for future testing requirements (raw material stability and finished
product expiration date verification).
All bulk finished products (tablets & capsules) are inspected and subjected to metal detection
prior to being sampled by QC. They are then subject to appropriate disintegration and/or dissolution testing, and
potency testing prior to being released to packaging. All liquid and powder products are tested for potency prior
to packaging as well. Finally, microbiological testing is performed on all finished products and document
reconciliation is completed prior to being released for shipment.
All testing is performed by our trained QC personnel using state of the art laboratory instrumentation including
High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), ICP, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AA), gel electrophoresis, FT
-IR, Ultra Violet spectrophotometry, Thin Layer chromatography and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-
Unlike many companies that are struggling to meet the new GMP requirements established by the FDA, companies
that are being regulated into implementing quality programs, extensive Quality Control has always been part of the
corporate fabric of Biotics Research Corporation.
From day one, the mantra of Biotics Research Corporation has been “Innovation and Quality.” Our goals remain
unchanged – utilize innovative ideas and carefully researched concepts with advanced techniques to develop products
of superior quality and effectiveness – bringing you “The Best of Science and Nature”.
