Biotics Research - Gastrazyme - 90 Tablets
Biotics Research Gastrazyme supplies specific nutrients including vitamin U complex, chlorophyllins and vitamin A, ingredients known to support healing of GI tract which may become stressed due to normal, everyday factors.
For the Health of Your Patients:
From a nutritional point of view, the gastrointestinal tract is considered one of the most important organs in the body. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract is paramount in achieving optimal health, as poor digestion can cause a multitude of seemingly unrelated problems. Nutritional health and gastrointestinal health are therefore closely correlated. Gastrazyme combines a number of nutritional components intended to support healthy digestive functioning, including vitamin A, gamma oryzanol, chlorophyllins, vitamin U complex, superoxide dismutase and catalase.
Early studies recognized the effectiveness of raw cabbage juice in normalizing gastric and intestinal functioning. Glutamine and methionine derivatives present in the juice are believed to be the active principals. Specific attention has been focused on methionine S-methyl sulfonium (MMS) in the chlorinated form. Traditionally, this compound (MMS) has been referred to as "Vitamin U", although it does not meet the classic definition of a vitamin. MMS has a variety of documented effects including stimulating the formation of gastric mucous, serving as an antioxidant, and acting as a methyl donor for a variety of acceptors. One study concluded that MMS supported the normal healing process of the stomach following exposure to nonsteroidal anti-in? amatory agents (NSAIDS).
Due to the high turnover rate of the gastrointestinal mucosa, vitamin A need is significantly increased. Inadequate vitamin A status has also been correlated with impaired barrier function of the GI tract, as well as immune system impairment. Gamma Oryzanol is a naturally occurring mixture of plant sterols and free transferulic acid esters derived from rice bran. It has marked antioxidant properties and has been shown to normalize intestinal function in animals subjected to chemical or physical stress, as well as those subject to sleep deprivation. Chlorophyllin, a derivative of chlorophyll, is also a known antioxidant. In addition, it maintains the ability to bind divalent metal ions, and protect DNA against damage from heterocyclic amines in vitro.
For the Health of Your Practice
While there are many different GI formulas available commercially, only Gastrazyme provides the practitioner with a unique blend of scientifically proven nutrients, most from their ideal, natural sources. Cabbage juice supplies vitamin U complex (as DL-methionine methylsulfonium chloride). Mulberry leaves supply chlorophyllins and vitamin A is supplied as natural mixed carotenoids and palmitate. Gamma Oryzanol is not only derived from the far superior rice bran oil, but is combined in our proprietary tableting base which creates a synergistic antioxidant effect. The biologically active vegetable culture tableting base supplies superoxide dismutase and catalase, collectively making Gastrazyme an integral part of any practitioners arsenal of superior nutritional support products.
All Biotics 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.

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".
