Biotics Research Bio-Cardiozyme Forte - 120 Tablets
Biotics Research Bio-Cardiozyme Forte is a special, broad spectrum formulation, designed to support healthy cardiovascular function. Supplies vitamins, mineral, amino acids, botanicals and antioxidant enzymes known to support heart health, along with specific organ and glandular support. The cardiovascular system, consisting of the heart, network of blood vessels, capillaries, arteries, and arterioles, cumulatively represents a network many miles long. The cardiovascular system distributes nutrients, including oxygen, to all cells of the body,
and it also functions to remove metabolic wastes. It serves as a cooling system, as a defense system via humoral and cell mediated immunity, and as a communication system (endocrine system) to maintain homeostasis. Its electrolytes maintain fluid and pH balance in all compartments of the body. Consequently, normal function of the cardiovascular system requires the integration of many bodily organs.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is responsible for the majority of deaths in the US, and coronary heart disease (CHD) accounts for almost 50% of the cardiovascular mortality. Thus a malfunction of the cardiovascular system forms a basis for degenerative type diseases. CHD is the major cause of premature death among men and women, thus CHD represents a modern epidemic.
Cardiovascular disease is a multi factorial condition. Well-established risk factors include both genetic and lifestyle aspects. Non-modifiable factors, otherwise noted as inheritance factors, are male gender, family history of CHD and menopause. Risk factors associated with medical history include cigarette smoking, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, uncontrolled hypertension, obesity, high serum cholesterol (dyslipdemia) and elevated serum homocysteine.
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".
