Biotics Research Ca/Mg-Zyme Caps - 90 Capsules
Biotics Research Ca/Mg-Zyme Caps is a supplemental source of calcium and magnesium. Calcium and Magnesium in certain proportions are both needed for many biological functions in the body particularly bone health. Together they are needed for the maintenance and rebuilding of bone. Calcium and magnesium deficiency are common in the United States. Poor calcium levels can lead to osteoporosis which is a decrease in bone mass. It is one of the most common age related health concerns in this country an leads to a dramatic increase in fractures among the elderly. Studies have also shown that increased intake of calcium and magnesium has been shown to accelerate healing of breaks and fractures at any age. Additionally low calcium and magnesium levels are known to cause muscle spasms and cramping. Calcium and magnesium supplementation can also be useful for treating skin lesions and itching of the skin.
Ca/Mg Zyme is a source of calcium citrate and magnesium citrate in a 5 to 1 ratio (5 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium). This ratio is based on how calcium and magnesium should be found in blood serum. Calcium citrate is known to be one of the most bio-available sources of calcium. This, combined with the fact that it is loosely packed in a capsule, allows for easier absorption through the gut wall, even for the elderly. This makes Ca/Mg Zyme extremely effective for short or long-term use. Another fine example of the type of quality and reliability that has come to be expected from Biotics Research Corporation, bringing 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".
