Biotics Research Thyrostim - 180 Tablets
Biotics Research Thyrostim is broad spectrum support for healthy thyroid function consisting of vitamin A, minerals and trace minerals, glandular specific probiotic support, L-Tyrosine and special enzyme synergists.
For the Health of Your Patients:
The thyroid gland is actually a collection of individual glands (follicles). Here, newly synthesized hormone is secreted into a central lumen prior to release into the bloodstream. In general, thyroid hormones refer to T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Though T4 is the main product, T3 is 3 to 4 times more active. T4 (with 4 atoms of iodine) is converted to T3 (with 3 atoms of iodine) via peripheral tissues, especially the liver and lung. Several factors, including low metabolic rate, falling blood pressure, and conditions that increase the need for energy such as a cold environment, hypoglycemia, pregnancy, or high altitude, stimulate the secretion of thyroid hormones. Varying degrees of hypothyroid function are routinely detected by laboratory tests and other measures
For the Health of Your Practice
The manufacture of thyroid hormones requires specific nutritional support, and Thyrostim's broad spectrum formula was designed to provide these key nutrients. Iodine - the common form of iodine in foods is iodide. At maximal activity, the thyroid can contain up to 300 fold greater concentration of iodide than blood levels. Cells oxidize iodide to organically bound iodine, which is then chemically combined with tyrosine. Tyrosine - this amino acid is a protein building block. In particular, many of the tyrosine residues of thyroglobulin are iodinated. Each molecule of thyroid hormone contains the equivalent of two tyrosine molecules. The uptake of tyrosine decreases with age. Neonatal pituitary /hypothalamus complex, a bioactive and complete tissue concentrate containing all peptides, proteins, nucleic acids and other nutrient factors. Selenium - is included as it is required for iodothyronine de-iodinase, the enzyme located in peripheral tissues that is required to convert T4 to T3. Selenium deficiency decreases iodothyronine deiodinase activity. High iodine intake, when selenium intake is low, can lead to reduced glutathione peroxidase activity. Magnesium - thyroid hormone is intimately associated with regulation of energy production and mitochondrial function, therefore magnesium is essential for protein synthesis, cell replication, and activation of the sodium-potassium pump, as well as for the regulation of calcitonin and parathyroid hormone. Copper is involved in the production of thyrotrophin. Manganese - very low manganese intake in laboratory studies retarded growth and thyroid hormone metabolism. Additionally, Rubidium, Tyrosinase, vitamin A, Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS 1), as well as SOD and Catalase from our patented biologically active vegetable culture are included to round off this formula. While Thyrostim is an excellent stand-alone product, it is also frequently used in conjunction with other thyroid support such as Iodizyme-HP, Liquid Iodine Forte,Meda-Stim, or Optimal EFAs. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to bring you "The Best of Science & Nature."
All Bitoics 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.
At Biotics Research, they provide superior nutritional supplements to benefit the patient health. ALL BIOTICS RESEARCH PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE and they always have been! With Biotics Research, there's no need to search through a catalog for all of the ingredients, or review label after label. You can use any product from Biotics Research without concern because ALL BIOTICS RESEARCH PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE !
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”.
