Biotics Research Corporation Sesame Seed Oil - 4 oz. (120ml)
Sesame Seed Oil from Biotics Research Corporation supplies a compound called sesamin which blocks insulin’s effect of Delta 5 Desaturase. When left unchecked, insulin stimulates Delta 5 Desaturase, diverting anti-inflammatory Omega 6 fats (DGLA) into the pro-inflammatory Arachidonic Acid (AA) cascade, resulting in pain and inflammation.
Biotics Research has formulated a perle form of this product, containing organic, virgin sesame oil at high concentrations. This allows your patients to get an effective amount of oil with a minimal number of perles. This will help increase compliance and ultimately result in great benefits. Each of our Sesame Seed Oil Caps contains 770mg of sesame seed oil.
Biotics Research is pleased to introduce two forms of the highest quality organic virgin sesame seed oil available in the nutraceutical market. By providing this product in both a liquid and perle form, healthcare professionals are able to increase compliance in order to see improvements in the health of their patients.
Sesame seed contains a compound called sesamin which is the active component and plays a key role in preventing pain. Insulin stimulates Delta 5 Desaturase diverting anti-inflammatory Omega 6 fats (DGLA) into the pro-inflammatory Arachidonic Acid (AA) cascade (increasing inflammation). Sesamin (contained in Sesame seed oil) blocks insulin’s effect on Delta 5 Desaturase preventing this diversion (if insulin is elevated - metabolic syndrome and decreasing inflammation).
Their new Sesame Seed Oil tastes like toasted sesame seeds so if you have patients adverse to swallowing pills, the liquid can be used as a salad topping.
Sesame Seed Oil
Sesame seeds yield 53% oil, depending upon the variety. Sesame seed oil contains a relatively large amount of linoleic acid (45%) and approximately equal amounts of oleic acid (40%). Sesame oil has long been used in Asian cooking, and Ayurvedic traditions recommend the use of topically applied sesame oil as health-promoting procedure. The absorption of lymphatic cholesterol by rats fed a diet containing 24% sesame oil was 50% less than that of rats fed a control diet. Levels of LDL cholesterol and liver cholesterol were significantly lower as well. Sesame oil did not alter the levels of HDL or serum triglycerides; however the level of liver lipids increased over controls. Sesame seeds and possible sesame seed oil contain lignan compounds, sesmol, sesaminol, pinoresinol, as well as tocopherols. These may contribute strong antioxidant activity. Certain cultured cells are sensitive to sesame oil. Sesame seed oil is reported to contain masked allergens, through allergies to sesame seeds are still rare.
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 Corporationhas 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".
