Biotics Research Gammanol Forte - 180 Tablets
Biotics Research Gammanol Forte supplies FRAC and Gamma Oryzanol, providing free all natural ferulic acid with a complex mixture of polyphenolics, including free sterols and triterpenoids. Supports healthy growth hormone production and offers significant free-radical scavenging properties as well. FRAC is a registered trademark of Biotics Research Corporation.
Gammanol Forte's components support the autonomic nervous system and its ability to respond to physical stress, especially anaerobic tasks such as weight lifting. As a result of physical stress, the body releases hormones with roles in reducing pain (endorphins), reducing inflammation (corticosteroids) and stimulating tissue repair (androgens and growth hormone).
Several small studies suggest that Gammanol Forte can provide nutritional support for the increased synthesis of growth hormone (GH), and possibly endorphins. Athletes, such as football players and weight lifters, have been shown to reduce body fat, increase lean body mass and increase strength over control groups. Additionally, a small study conducted by Dr. David Brownstein showed that women taking Gammanol Forte for five weeks showed an increase in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and by inference GH, which directs the production of IGF-1.
The benefits of Gammanol Forte supplementation on athletic performance have been demonstrated. That is why Gammanol Forte has been recommended and used by collegiate and professional athletes for years.
For the Health of Your Patients
Gammanol Forte is a source of gamma oryzanol, a naturally occurring mixture of plant sterols and free transferulic acid esters derived from rice bran. Research indicates that gamma oryzanol has a plethora of functional effects. In addition to its best known actions of promoting increases in lean muscle mass and enhancing endorphin release, the sterol component of gamma oryzanol has noted effects on modified sterols such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, etc. It has been known to support normal, healthy cholesterol levels, support hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, increase human growth hormone activity (as measured using insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1)), and act as a potent antioxidant. It has also been shown to have a normalizing effect on gastric functioning, particularly on gastric and duodenal mucosa.
For the Health of Your Practice
Not all gamma oryzanol is created equally. While gamma oryzanol may be sourced from corn or barley, Biotics Research chooses to use gamma oryzanol from rice bran, as it results in a superior product free from common allergens. Biotics Research Corporation processes gamma oryzanol utilizing a highly specialized fractionation process (FRAC) that vastly improves the bioavailability of the ferulic acid component. In addition to this marked improvement in bioavailability is the synergistic effect with Gammanol Forte's combination of gamma oryzanol and FRAC, with its proprietary tableting base. Laboratory findings reveal a combined antioxidant effect that is far superior to the antioxidant status of either constituent on its own. Collectively, Gammanol Forte may just be one of the most versatile supplements you've never heard about. As always, 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 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".
