With most over the counter brands, if you take a 50 mg tablet of B6, you would also be getting as much as 450 mg of compressible sugar, starch, lactose, cellulose, or dicalcium phosphate?
We all like to get more than we pay for, don’t we? We like a good deal, which is one of many reasons why I recommend you purchase your nutrients from a health care professional instead of a chain or discount store. With most over the counter brands, if you take a 50 mg tablet of B6, you could also be getting as much as 450 mg of compressible sugar, starch, lactose, cellulose, or dicalcium phosphate?
What if you are taking 3 products at a dose of 2 three times a day? The “inert” filler in that product could easily add up to 4 or 5 grams. But what if you could buy a supplement that had “food” as the tableting base. Even better, what if therapeutic levels of nutrients were added to that food source while it’s growing? This would give the product enhanced nutrient levels to support clinical therapies yet the fillers used would be food.
If the food was processed at low temperatures, it could have therapeutic value and even enhance the effectiveness of the nutrients. That was the thinking behind the Biotics Research “vegetable culture tableting base,” and the results have been beyond their expectations.
Due to the exciting research in the late 70’s on superoxide dismutase, Biotics acquired a biotechnology division of a midsized pharmaceutical company that was the first to commercially prepare superoxide dismutase or SOD for short. It is essential that our bodies make SOD in the mitochondria as well as the cytoplasm to protect the inner working of the cell.
Researchers estimate that SOD is the 5th most prevalent enzyme in our bodies. Here are some of the ways SOD is used therapeutically: conditions associated with excessive free radicals, low white blood cells, rampant viral or bacterial infection, all forms of arthritis and inflammation.
Most of the tablets and capsules in supplements by Biotics Research have both SOD and catalase as the filler; so rather than “inert sugars and powders,” the Biotics tableting base provides real food. About 20 years ago, Biotics expanded their phytochemistry lab and hired additional biochemists with the express purpose to find out what else was in their tableting base they call the vegetable culture.
One of their scientists, whose last name was so difficult to pronounce everyone called him Dr. Dave, had worked for years with pharmaceutical companies in the jungles isolating plant compounds. Dr. Dave found Biotics’ vegetable culture loaded with antioxidant compounds far beyond the SOD and catalase. He found gram for gram that the tableting base had the highest antioxidant capacity of any one single herb. That’s amazing, the “filler” yields significant antioxidant activity. Now, that’s a good deal.
Wellness clinicians worldwide use Biotics because they can guarantee a biologically active tablet that will dissolve quickly and easily and therapeutically delivers far more than is what is on the label. Which product would you prefer to take if given the choice? Nutrients from a discount store with “inert” fillers or therapeutic nutrients integrated into a whole food base? This doesn’t even take into consideration the purity and activity of the therapeutic product. We are just talking about the tableting base.
Years ago I began using nutrients by Biotics Research with my patients. Through clinical use, I’ve come to respect and depend on the purity, potency, and consistency of their supplements. Their unique tableting base offers something you can’t find with other products. Purchasing nutraceutical grade supplements through your Wellness professional guarantees you are not only getting what you pay for, you are getting more than what you pay for, and you can’t go wrong with that.
