Biotics Research Corporation - B12-2000 with Folic Acid and B6 - 60 Lozenges
B12 2000 by Biotics Research is pleasantly tasting and each lozenge supplies high potency levels of vitamins B12, folic acid and B6. Each is important in a wide range functions, and the status of each impacted by a number of pharmaceutical compound. B12-2000™ Lozenges are especially important for women who are pregnant or who are wishing to become pregnant.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is increasingly common given the Standard American Diet (SAD), and its prevalence has been found to increase with age. Vitamin B12, an essential vitamin, is an indispensable coenzyme for two very important metabolic enzymes: methylmalonyl-CoA, which is involved in fatty acid metabolism, and methionine synthase, which is required in nucleic acid synthesis and methylation reactions. Folic acid is required for DNA synthesis as well as lipid metabolism. Vitamin B6 is vital to numerous functions including immune support, gluconeogenesis, red cell metabolism, as well as lipid and neurotransmitter synthesis, which affects both nervous system and hormone function. The status of all three vitamins has been shown to be negatively impacted as a result of interactions of commonly prescribed drugs, including birth control pills. Deficiencies have been linked to serious health challenges such as neural tube defects. B12-2000™ Lozenges is a supplement that patients can’t wait to take. Each great tasting B12-2000™ Lozenges supplies 2,000 mcg of vitamin B12 (as hydroxycobalamin), 800 mcg of Folate (as folic acid), and 2 mg of vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5- phosphate). It has been hypothesized that the supplementation of methylcobalamin in the presence of mercury (amalgam fillings) could lead to the formation of methyl mercury. Since B12-2000™ Lozenges were designed to be dissolved in the mouth, Biotics Research has chosen to utilize hydroxycobalamin as the preferred form of vitamin B12 for oral dosing.
Why you may need B12-2000 Lozenges .
Homocysteine is an amino acid found in the blood. It is an intermediate that occurs when the body is low in certain factors that convert one much needed amino acid (methionine) to another (cysteine). Studies have shown that too much homocysteine in the blood (plasma) is related to a higher risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and potentially many other conditions of chronic inflammation. Other evidence suggests that homocysteine may have a serious effect on atherosclerosis (hardening or narrowing of the arteries) by damaging the inner lining of arteries and promoting blood clots. Homocysteine levels are strongly influenced by diet, as well as by genetic factors. The dietary components with the greatest effects are folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12. Folic acid, B6 and B12 vitamins help break down homocysteine in the body and complete its conversion to cysteine. Several studies have found that higher blood levels of B12 and Folic acid correlate to lower concentrations of homocysteine. Other recent evidence shows that low blood levels of these essential vitamins are linked to a higher risk of fatal coronary heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Why your Healthcare Professional recommends B12-2000 Lozenges from Biotics Research Corporation.
B12-2000 are a naturally flavored B12 lozenge that also contain synergistic levels of both vitamin B6 and Folic acid, all of which are key cofactors needed to reduce homocysteine levels. B12-2000 Lozenges are an oral B12 supplement designed to dissolve in the patient’s mouth. Do not chew them. Studies have demonstrated that, if allowed to dissolve in the mouth, oral forms of vitamin B12 are extremely effective. This allows the nutrients to by pass digestion and enter directly into the blood stream, similar to injections but without the needle. Biotics Research Corporation leads the industry in product quality and effectiveness bringing “The Best of Science and Nature” to the consumer.

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”.
