Biotics Research Corporation Lipid-Sirt - 240 Capsules
Lipid-Sirt from Biotics Research Corporation provides support for vascular integrity and healthy aging by supporting and stimulating sirtuin activity. Hyperlipidemia is a key factor associated with an increased risk of the development of cardiovascular disease. Also referred to as high cholesterol, dyslipdemia, and lipid disorder, hyperlipidemia is a condition by which unhealthy levels of cholesterol circulate in the blood. The human body obtains cholesterol in two ways: up to 80% of the cholesterol is produced endogenously in the liver; the remainder is obtained from the diet in the form of animal products such as meats, fish, eggs, and dairy. While there is not a readily accepted level of cholesterol in the human body that is considered 'safe', most clinical guidelines list Total Cholesterol levels under 200 mg/dl as desirable.
Why Choose Lipid-Sirt from Biotics Research Corporation?
Lipid-Sirt is the latest addition to Biotics Research Corporation hugely popular "Sirt" Line of cardiovascular and anti-aging products. Lipid-Sirt was developed to lower cholesterol. Lipid-Sirt was formulated in collaboration with Dr. Mark Houston, Associate Clinical Professor of medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School and Director of Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology in Nashville, TN. Each serving of Lipid-Sirt supplies: 450 mg of pantethine. Pantethine may increase levels of Enzyme CoA, which can increase the beta oxidation of fatty acids directly, and its metabolite cysteamine may decrease the hepatic synthesis of cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-Co reductase. 400mg of Plant Sterols (from soybean) are included as they have been shown to reduce the intestinal absorption of cholesterol by 30-40%, significantly lowering LDL cholesterol. Green tea consumption has been associated with a reduced mortality due to all causes and due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), so 300mg of green tea leaf extract (standardized to 50% EGCG) has been included in Lipid-Sirt. EGCG possesses the most potent antioxidant, thereby reducing LDL and VLDL oxidation, and by improving endothelium-dependant flow mediated dilation in patients with endothelial dysfunction. 37.5 mg of Delta-tocotrienol (from annatto seed) is included, as studies have demonstrated that tocotrienols may inhibit the progression of atherosclerotic lesions in mice. Delta-tocotrienols specifically were found to possess the greatest ability to inhibit cholesterol synthesis. Lastly, 2.5 mg of Phytolens is provided as polymeric proanthocyanidin which has been shown to increase endothelial nitric oxide syntase to a greater extent than monomers in aortic endothelial cells. Lipid-Sirt is a safe and effective product for the support and management of hyperlipidemia. Recommendation 1 serving (4 capsules) taken twice daily with meals, or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional. Each bottle of Lipid-Sirt provides a full 30 day supply. Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you "The Best of Science and Nature."

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”.
