Biotics Research DopaTropic Powder - 4.7 oz. (132g)
Biotics Research DopaTropic Powder contains a naturally occurring source of L-Dopa from the Mucuna pruriens plant. Dopamine is largely responsible for regulating physical movement, emotion, and the pleasure and motivation centers of the brain.
Why you may need DopaTropic Powder: Vastly complex, the human nervous system coordinates innumerable processes via a host of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are used for everything from signaling the heart and lungs to function, to enabling the body to sleep so regeneration and repair can occur. Emotions, affect, mood, appetite, and even energy levels are also regulated by neurotransmitters. Unfortunately, neurotransmitters operate within a very narrow confine, and their balance can be easily disrupted by a variety of factors including genetics, immune function, diet, stress, and general chemical toxicity. Dopamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that is important for regulating physical movement, emotion, and pleasure and motivation centers of the brain. It also plays a neurocognitive role, particularly with memory, problem solving, motivation, learning, and the ability to focus. Additionally, dopamine acts on the sympathetic nervous system, thus it impacts physiological functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and libido.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends DopaTropic Powder: DopaTropic Powder is one of the newest additions to the Biotics Research line of fine nutritional supplements and is part of the NeuTropic triad of products (PheniTropic, NeuPerzine, and DopaTropic Powder). L-Dopa, (aka levodopa; L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) is a naturally occurring dopamine precursor that is derived from the Mucuna pruriens plant. L-Dopa is an amino acid which is converted to the catecholamine neurotransmitter dopamine. Low levels of dopamine are found in Parkinsons patients, and are associated with addictions, cravings, difficulty with focusing, or with the intake or processing information. Each level teaspoon of DopaTropic Powder contains 125 mg of L-Dopa that is sweetened with erythritol for fast delivery and ease of use. Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol that is 60-70% as sweet as sugar, yet it is almost noncaloric, and does not affect blood sugar levels or promote tooth decay. Unlike other sugar alcohols, it is unlikely to cause gastric side effects. It is usually recommended that DopaTropic Powder be dosed early in the day as it may elicit sleep disturbances if taken before bed. DopaTropic Powder is not recommended for use during pregnancy or lactation. Nor should it be taken in conjunction with MAOI’s, psychosis medications, blood thinners, diabetic medications, or by patients taking medications for Parkinsons disease.

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

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-
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”.
