For the Health of your Patients:
Occasionally patients will present with a bizarre compendium of symptoms or chronic conditions that are seemingly unrelated. Frequently these symptoms may include a history of recurrent infections; particularly those of the urinary tract, the skin, the mouth or the vagina, allergic responses, digestive disorders, overwhelming mood disturbances, chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, chronic sinus congestion or post-nasal drip, fungal infections involving the skin or toenails, joint pain, or simply immune system dysfunction. It is common for these patients to have already been diagnosed or treated for any number of syndromes or conditions, very often with long courses of antibiotics or other immune disrupting drugs. Not consistently recognized by the allopathic community, fungi and/or yeast have been implicated as a concurrent or as a major aspect of a wide variety of conditions. Not only can yeast or fungi directly suppress immune function, but they can affect gut permeability, leading to “leaky gut” which may result in a wide variety of allergic or inflammatory responses. Many healthcare providers now believe that all patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Autism Spectrum Disorder, rhinitis or sinusitis should be evaluated for fungi or yeast overgrowth.
For the Health of your Practice:
Developed in conjunction with Dr. Gary Lasneski, FC-Cidal is an herbal combination designed to support the elimination of fungal or yeast dysbiosis. Artemisia dracunculus (French Tarragon) contains a complex mixture of almost 50 different compounds which, amongst other properties, is known to inhibit the growth of several pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. Tinaspora cordifolia (Indian Tinaspora) is a bitter herb that has been found to be inhibitory to both parasites and yeast. Other herbal extracts, including Equisetum arvense (Horsetail), Olea europa (olive leaf), Thymus vulgaris (Thyme), Urtica dioica (Stinging nettle), and Tabeuia Avellanedae (Pau D’Arco) have all been shown to inhibit fungal, yeast, or bacterial growth, in addition to balancing inflammatory mechanisms and supporting immune function. Successfully addressing fungal and yeast overgrowth can be challenging, and a three-pronged approach is often necessary: supplementation targeting dysbiosis, an anti-fungal diet, and probiotics to help recolonize the bowel with beneficial flora. Successful elimination of dysbiosis typically requires a minimum duration of 6 weeks; however it is not uncommon for it to take up to six months in chronic or severe situations. A.D.P. , 21st Century Homeopathic #8 (Fungal/Yeast), Bromelain Plus, and/or BioDoph-7 Plus are all supplements that are commonly used in conjunction with FC-Cidal.

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”.
