Biotics Research Corportion Bio-K-Mulsion - 1 oz. (15 mL)
Bio-K-Mulsion from Biotics Research Corporation supplies vitamin K1 (500 mcg per drop) in an emulsified form to aid in the uptake and utilization of this important vitamin. Vitamin K status is important on bone health, and recent research has linked it to cardiovascular health as well.
- Show significantly less toxicity than micellized preparations
- Are the most cost-effective form of fat-soluble vitamin supplementation
- Possess the smallest particle sizes of commercial emulsions tested
- Have equal or greater uptake and bioavailability than micellized products
Why do your patients need Bio-K-Mulsion?
Vitamin K1 is the primary dietary source of vitamin K, estimated to contribute about 40-50% of the total dietary intake. Functionally, vitamin K is required as a cofactor in the posttranslational conversion of specific glutamate residues into carboxyglutamic acid (Gla). In this function, the vitamin K dependent proteins play a diverse physiological role in cellular proliferation. Vitamin K dependent proteins also play an important role in the activation of the coagulation cascade, and in the maintenance of both the flow and the structural integrity of vascular tissues. For the past two decades, research in humans has correlated the risk of osteoporotic fractures with vitamin K insufficiency. Patients demonstrating osteoporotic fractures were shown to have a 70% decrease in vitamin K, as compared to age-matched controls. Consequently, mounting evidence suggests that higher intakes of vitamin K than previously recommended are needed for optimal bone health, as the current RDI may be too low to support the carboxylation of osteocalcin. Supplemental vitamin K (10mg/day) in female athletes with low-estrogen was demonstrated to increase the calcium-binding capacity of osteocalcin, resulting in a 15-20% increase in bone formation markers, along with a 20-25% decrease in bone resorption markers.
Why Bio-K-Mulsion from Biotics Research Corporation?
Vitamin-K absorption depends on normal consumption and digestion of dietary fat. As an essential fat soluble nutrient , vitamin K may be inadequately absorbed, due to insufficiency in these factors. Biotics Research Corporation's Bio-K-Mulsion is emulsified for enhanced absorption, thus may be especially important in patients with fat malabsorption issues. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to provide you with the "Best of Science and Nature".
All Bitoics Research Items are Gluten Free!
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”.
