      Biotics Research Porphyra-Zyme - 270 Tablets

      Biotics Research Porphyra-Zyme supplies botanical extracts and concentrates, providing naturally occurring chlorophyullin, galactoglycerides, chlorophyll and other phytonutrients to support the normal, healthy elimination of toxic metals.

      In 1980, Biotics Research Corporation began investigating the use and production of Spirulina plankton.  A leading expert from the University of  Texas provided insight into methods of production, as well as pure Spirulina cultures that were the starting culture for our research and production. Production was halted when scientists at Biotics isolated what they considered the "active” principal of Spirulina the porphyrin ring of chlorophyll. While many claims for the nutritional value of Spirulina have been made, the consensus was the most significant value in Spirulina was chlorophyll. However, the chlorophyll content in Spirulina is low (typically less than 1%).

      Porphyra-Zyme  - A Concentrated Porphyrin Product
      Unlike traditional chlorophyll products,  Porphyra-Zyme is a concentrated porphyrin supplement. By increasing the porphyrin content, the heavy metal binding capability is also increased, providing clinicians with a natural, effective “chelating” tool.  Porphyrins have the ability to bind divalent metal ions due to the nitrogen atoms of the tetrapyrrole nucleus. The central ion in chlorophyll is magnesium, which is freed from chlorophyll under acidic conditions, permitting other metals to bind in its place. Toxic metals, such as mercury, lead and arsenic, are complexed first. Then excess amounts of other divalent metals, such as calcium, can be complexed by porphyrins.

      Investigational Data on Porphyra-Zyme
      Scientists at Biotics Research Corporation studied the ability of  Porphyra-Zyme to bind heavy metals in vitro. Porphyra-Zyme was dialyzed against aqueous solutions of heavy metal ions.  Afterward, the concentration of heavy metal ion remaining in the dialysis medium was determined.  As can be seen by the Investigational Data chart, Porphyra-Zyme proved to be very effective in binding heavy metals.



      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".
