Biotics Research Bio-Trophic Plus - 90 Tablets
Biotics Research Bio-Trophic Plus is a whole food multi vitamin. Bio-Trophic Plus supplies the range of B complex vitamins, including the phosphorylated forms of B1, B2 and B6. B vitamins are key players in metabolism, assisting in the catalytic function of enzymes to produce energy from fuels. In other words, as coenzymes, they serve as enzyme helpers in central enzymatic pathways that degrade fatty acids, amino acids and glucose to yield ATP. Other enzymes use B complex vitamins in biosynthetic reactions.
Additional vitamin support is provided as natural mixed carotenoids, vitamins C, and D, and vitamin E as natural mixed tocopherols. Specific amounts of important ultra trace minerals are provided via our biologically active vegetable cultures. Included are chromium, molybdenum, selenium, vanadium, lithium, rubidium and silicon. These are true, non-yeast, non-gluten food forms of key micro-nutrients.
Organ specific support is supplied via our proprietary neonatal heart, kidney, liver and spleen tissue concentrates. Published histological data supports the contention that neonatal organ and glandular tissues are superior to typical sources of commonly used glandular and organ tissues. The study demonstrated profound cytological differences between tissues from neonatal animals and those from adult cattle, especially pertaining to structural integrity, fatty tissue infiltration and degeneration as a consequence of aging. For example, in adult bovine kidney, a decline in glomerular filtration rate is seen, as is a decline in renal tubular function. When comparing neonatal bovine kidney tissue vs. adult (2 yr. old) bovine tissue (at 63X), the differences are very apparent. In the neonatal tissue, the small size of the lumen in the surrounding tubules, and the close proximity of the nuclei is evident. In contrast, adult kidney tissues possess less compact and more diffuse structure. Keep in mind, kidneys of adult animals have processed many thousands of gallons of urine containing a wide assortment of wastes, including pesticides, industrial pollutants and microbial toxins, to name a few.
The picture is even more dramatic when comparing neonatal bovine heart tissue with adult heart tissue. No vascular abnormalities are noted in the neonatal heart tissue. However, in adult tissue, calcification of arteries can be identified, as well as the presence of numerous parasites (note the arrows pointing to sacs of Sarcocystis species, which are resistant to both organic solvents and freeze-drying; common methods of glandular processing).
There are other benefits to neonatal tissues as well. Using liver as an example, the proliferative activity is generally low in adult liver tissue, with histochemical assessment indicating less than 0.1% of hepatocytes in the S phase of the cell cycle. In contrast, dividing cells are common in the liver of newborn (neonatal) animals.
Bio-Trophic Plus provides other key nutrients as well, including organic whole beet concentrate, which supplies a natural source of betaine, and buckwheat culture, a source of bioflavonoids. The inclusion of judicious amounts of antioxidant synergists including quercetin, green tea EGCG, citrus bioflavonoids, gamma oryzanol and FRAC,and important antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase, round out this unique, broad spectrum dietary supplement.
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".
