    Biotics Research - Colon Plus Caps - 120 Capsules

    Biotics Research Colon Plus supplies multiple sources of fiber, enzyme and probiotic constituents to support healthy bowl flora and GI function. May furnish a smoothing effect and provide bulk which promotes natural elimination.

    Psyllium Seed Powder (Plantago psyllium) - Small, dark reddish-brown seeds which are odorless and tasteless, and high in both fiber and mucilage. Used as a laxative, psyllium seed powder helps to relieve constipation, stimulates normal peristalsis, and purges the system of noxious products. The laxative action of psyllium seed is due to the swelling of the powder when it comes in contact with water, forming a gelatinous and sticky mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft, provided it is taken with sufficient water. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel, followed by emptying of larger softer stool, which is easier to pass. This effect is generally observed overnight.

    Kelgin (Sodium alginate) - Kelgin, the sodium salt of alginic acid, is extracted from selected varieties of brown seaweed, including the giant brown kelp Macrocystis pyrifera. Kelgin's unique property is to form gels when combined with calcium ions without heating. This reaction is widely used throughout the industry to texturize and stabilize many food products. In the food industry, sodium alginate is used for gelling, thickening, stabilizing and film forming properties.

    This reaction proceeds to the right until all the metal is precipitated as metal-alginate derivative. If two or more metal ions are involved in reaction with kelgin, the precipitation will take place according to the electro-negativity potential (value) of each metal.

    Algin is a hydrophilic (water-loving) colloidal polysaccharide obtained from seaweed. First isolated in 1896 by Kreting, algin is now know to be linear polymers of b- (1-4) d-mannosyluronic acid and (1-4) L-glucosyluronic acid, and to have a molecular weight of about 240,000.

    Calcium Ascorbate - Calcium ascorbate is a neutral salt of calcium and vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Calcium ascorbate is one of the two pure salts of vitamin C, which have successfully been stabilized. Besides possessing properties as a water-soluble antioxidant, ascorbic acid is also an efficient chelater of heavy metals.

    Flax Seed (Linum usitatissimum) - Flax seed is comprised of ~40% linseed oil. Both flax seed and linseed oil have laxative qualities, and flax seed oil is reportedly an effective demulcent.

    Apple Pectin - Pectin, a polysaccharide present as a cell wall constituent, is a source of water soluble fiber which has a gel-forming effect when mixed with water. As a dietary fiber, the apple pectin is helpful in maintaining good digestive and intestinal balance by cleansing the intestinal tract with its soluble and insoluble fibers. Pectins have a gelling action similar to that of alginates. The main constituent of pectin is a methylated (CH3, methyl group) polygalacturonic acid. The degree of methylation of pectins varies from one type to another. In Colon-Plus, the apple pectin is a specially prepared polymer having a high degree of methoxyl groups. Moreover, pectins are susceptible to precipitation by polyvalent ions or metals. Physiologically, the oral use of kelgin and apple pectin (high methoxyl type) will be very similar. A colloidal gel forms with water, which is highly charged and has an affinity for heavy metals and to a lesser degree, calcium and other divalent ions. This gel aids in the formation of intestinal bulk, which acts as a smoothing effect, thus promoting natural elimination.

    Mannitol - Mannitol is a simple water soluble sugar obtained from various plants, and is a mild sweetener. Mannitol has a slow rate of absorption from the intestinal tract and exerts laxative properties. Another unique characteristic of mannitol is its ability to react nonenzymatically with free radicals, in particular, hydroxyl radicals (OH-). Free radicals are highly reactive agents capable of oxidative attack of tissues (membranes), cells and structures within cells, for example mitochondrial membranes and cellular macromolecules.
    Celery - Celery is included for natural mild flavoring.

    Peppermint Leaves - Peppermint leaves provide a natural flavoring agent rich in chlorophyll. Peppermint has a carminative effect on the intestinal tract and induces digestive enzyme secretion.

    Aloe Vera Powder - Historically, Aloe Vera has been used for a variety of disorders. Perhaps no one plant has received so much attention and use as Aloe Vera as a medical agent. Its use is found in biblical references and modern day medicine, most notably for the acceleration of wound healing. Stimulation of peristalsis, especially the larger bowel, results from the irritant effect upon epithelial tissues. In chronic constipation, Aloe Vera provides a mild stimulation of peristalsis, aiding the natural elimination process.

    Lactobacillus acidophilus - The intestinal system is a medium for intestinal flora, and as such, may have as much as four (4) pounds of bacterial organisms in the adult system. Many of these organisms are pathogenic and compete for available space with commensal bacterial flora that colonizes the gastrointestinal tract. The use of antibiotics often results in an imbalance of the microflora system, resulting in intestinal putrefaction and can increase the possibility of the development of degenerative conditions (J. Food Protection, V.47, No.9, pp. 717-723, Sept. 1984). The restoration of "healthy microflora" is possible through the addition of Lactobacillis acidophilus organisms. The majority of microorganisms occur in the colon. Lactobacillus acidophilus organisms aids in acidifying the gut via the production of lactic acid. Other micronutrients including vitamin B12, biotin, and folic acid, are produced by intestinal bacteria.

    Bromelain - Bromelain is a plant derived proteolytic enzyme with a molecular weight of 33,000, isolated from the stem tissue of pineapple. The activity of bromelain is similar to that of papain. Bromelain hydrolyzes peptides, amides, and esters.

    Anise - (Pimpinella anisum) Anise is an herb, which has the properties of a natural flavoring agent as well as a mild carminative.

    Prune Powder - The dried fruit of Prunas domestica. Prunes have been well documented for their ability to facilitate the natural process of elimination.

    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".
