    Biotics Research Corporation Optimal EFAs  - 120 Capsules

    Optimal EFAs from Biotics Research Corporation supplies a unique blend of the highest quality fish, flaxseed and borage oils, providing a balanced blend of omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids in optimal ratios.  Fatty acid imbalances are common in societies like ours that consume an abundance of processed foods with artificial ingredients and hydrogenated (trans) fats, and have an over-reliance on grains. Essential fatty acid (EFA) deficits generally occur in combination; therefore, supplementation with a balanced combination of EFAs makes logical sense.

    Optimal EFAs™ supplies a unique blend of the highest quality fish, flaxseed and borage oils and provides balanced proportions of ALA, EPA, DHA, GLA, and Oleic acid, as indicated by current research to support good health.

    Fish oils are a rich source of the long-chain polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.  DHA is a vital component of cell membranes, and is especially important for optimal function of the brain and eyes.  Both EPA and DHA are important for maintaining healthy blood lipids and inhibiting the conversion of arachidonic acid (a fatty acid associated with cancer and heart disease) into pro-inflammatory chemicals (such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes) that cause pain and inflammation. The FDA recently established that increased consumption of EPA and DHA found in fish oils helps to protect against heart disease.  Flaxseed oil is a very rich source of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, and Oleic acid, the same fatty acid attributed to the heart protecting effects of olive oil. Increased consumption of ALA inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory compounds (such as prostaglandins and cytokines) and inhibits platelet aggregation thus reducing the risk of arterial blockage.

    Borage oil is an excellent source of Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is considered “the good Omega-6 fatty acid.” GLA’s main benefits come from its metabolites, which have anti-inflammatory properties and inhibit platelet aggregation.  Like flaxseed oil, borage oil is also a source of Oleic acid. Oleic acid supports lower levels of blood glucose and lower insulin levels in type-2 diabetics, as well as healthy levels of
    blood lipids.

    The key message to remember is this – Americans generally consume too much Omega-6 fats (such as corn oil) high in linoleic and arachidonic acids, and too much hydrogenated “trans” fats, all of which promote inflammation.  Additionally, we generally consume too little Omega-3s and other fatty acids which are known to be “health-promoting.”  Supplementation with health-promoting essential fatty acids such as ALA, EPA, DHA, GLA and Oleic acid found in Optimal EFAs™  is well documented in current research to provide safe and effective support for overall health.

    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”.

    Suggested Use
    Two (2) capsules two (2) times each day as dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.

    Warnings
