Biotics Research Corporation - GlucoBalance - 90 Capsules
Supplemental source of this important phospholipid which is a structural part of biologic membranes. Phosphatidylserine is involved in signal transduction activity, and may positively impact cognition.
GlucoBalance is a versatile, balanced multiple vitamin and mineral combination formulated by Dr. Alan Gaby and Dr. Jonathan Wright. In addition, it contains several nutrients essential for glucose metabolism including: 1,000 mcg of chromium (as aspartate) – required for GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor), niacin– a vital component of GTF, niacinamide – which is necessary for producing NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) in insulin secreting pancreatic B cells,biotin – essential for glucose phosphorylation by hepatic glucokinase, the first step in glucose utilization, and antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to provide you with superior nutritional supplements; the “Best of Science and Nature.”
Support for Normal Glucose Levels
Why you may need GlucoBalance.
Type II diabetics, sometimes called non-insulin dependent diabetes, age-onset or adult-onset diabetes, is the form of diabetes that occurs most often in people who are overweight and/or do not exercise. It is also common in people of Native American, Hispanic, and African-American descent. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), your body's main source of fuel. The body may make insulin, but it either doesn’t make enough or can’t properly use the insulin it makes to control the level of sugar in the blood. As a result, little or no sugar gets into the body’s cells - this causes the sugar to build up in the blood. The consequences of uncontrolled Type II diabetes are just as serious as those for Type I, as is the risk of developing chronic complications including: nerve and blood vessel damage affecting eyes, heart, limbs, kidneys, and stomach. Fortunately research has been able to isolate specific nutrients known to be responsible for increasing the body’s ability to use the insulin it does make. For instance chromium is a cofactor in the production of Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), which acts as a sort of gate-keeper that opens the doors to let insulin into the cells. Vanadium has insulin like effects on the liver and muscles helping to reduce blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that magnesium increases sensitivity to insulin and people with Type 2 Diabetes usually have very low levels of this and most other minerals. Other nutrients such as zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, L-carnitine along with B vitamins as co-factors have also been clinically shown to successfully help manage Type 2 Diabetes as well.
Why do your patients need GlucoBalance?
Research has clearly demonstrated that diet alone may not supply nutrients in sufficient amounts necessary for overall good health. Many studies support the use of dietary supplementation to ensure adequate consumption of important nutrients. A growing number of doctors, researchers, and nutritional experts agree that supplementation is important to protect against common deficiencies, many of which have been linked to unwanted chronic conditions, and to provide support for optimal physical and mental wellness. Therefore, for generalized well-being, a complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula is required to ensure that the nutritional basics are covered. Compounding the widespread need for dietary support, modern diets, heavy in sugars, carbohydrates, and saturated fats have resulted in widespread glucose dysregulation issues. Effective regulation of blood glucose has important implications for health. Even mild disruptions of glucose homeostasis can have adverse consequences. Chronic diabetes may result in cardiovascular disease, neuropathy, blindness, or renal failure. Hypoglycemia (also called reactive hypoglycemia or dysinsulinism), though not generally associated with the organ damage seen in diabetes, can be responsible for a number of troublesome physical and psychological symptoms. GlucoBalance™ was specifically formulated to support normal glucose levels.

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- MS).
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”.
