Vitamin D (Information and Supplements, click here)

The vitamin D council flu protocol is 2,000iu's per kg of body weight daily at initial flu onset for up to a week

"My cold and flu supplement regime is that I take Bio-Immunozyme Forte, UltraVir-X, Optimal EFAs Caps, Bio-D-Mulsion Forte, and Ca/Mg-Zyme Caps by Biotics Research, as soon as I feel a bug coming on. I take these three times a day, and drink lots of fluids. I take these about ten minutes before a meal as Bio-Immunozyme Forte, UltraVir-X can upset my stomach as they are strong."

Support Your Natural Killer Cells
In the Battle against Cold & Flu

by Biotics

Stimulating Your Natural Immune System the Newest Frontier In the High Tech Science

One of the newest frontiers in medical science is the support or stimulation of our own natural immune system. The vast amount of new research regarding how natural substances can affect the immune system is staggering. For example, actual human testing has now shown that vitamin C supplemented volunteers showed increased natural killer cell activity.

This is just the very smallest tip of the iceberg. New research is now coming out daily regarding how natural substances can affect our immune system. This cutting edge research is the basis around Biotics Research Corp. designed a core group of cold-flu/immune related products. Below are some of the aspects of our natural army, the immune system, these products seek to support.

 

Your Immune Army

 

Natural killer cells scout for infected or malignant cells and destroy them.

Phagocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils, monocytes) are cells that seek out and eat the enemy; viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites.

Antibodies are an army of immune proteins that are specifically created to stick to, attack, and disable particular antigens.

Basophils act like mines, blowing up and releasing chemicals which trigger disease chemicals which trigger disease coping processes.

T cells are the generals that orchestrate the immune system army. There are 4 types of T cells: Helper T cells which stimulate the production of killer T cells, Suppresser T cells which reduces the immune response when the threat is removed, Memory T cells which quickly activate the immune response if/when an antigen reappears, Killer T cells that kill infected or cancerous cells.

 

Immune Boosting Components as an Arsenal to Protect Against Cold and Flu
by Rachel Olivier, MS, ND, PhD

 

Specific nutrients aimed at supporting immune disturbances are important components of the nutritional arsenal, specifically with regard to the cold and flu season.  A healthy immune system contributes significantly to the prevention of seasonal illnesses.  The following components have been noted to be beneficial on the immune response, and to aide in supporting a healthy immune system.

The immune-enhancing properties of Larch arabinogalactans (IAG) suggest that it possesses an array of clinical applications due to its ability to assemble a more responsive immune system.  Arabinogalactan has a positive impact on the immune system, and has been demonstrated to stimulate the proliferation of macrophages, and to enhance the cytotoxicity of Natural Killer (NK) cells.  Therapeutically, it is typically used in conditions associated with lowered immune function, decreased NK activity, or chronic viral infections.  Its use has also been demonstrated to enhance the cytotoxicity of natural killer (NK) cells, confirming its beneficial attribute in immune support.  Each teaspoon of IAGsupplies approximately two grams of Arabinogalactans.  Because it is a powdered formulation, it is easily administered to both adults and children.

The complete vitamin D system exerts a cumulative effect on the immune response, and immune responses are exceedingly dependent upon an adequate vitamin D status.  Vitamin D’s specific response has been correlated to an enhancement of innate immunity, coupled with multifaceted regulation of adaptive immunity.  Additionally, the seasonality of the influenza epidemic has been correlated with low vitamin D status.  Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® supplies 2,000IUs of emulsified Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol), in an easily dosed liquid form.

The beneficial attributes of thymus glandular (Cytozyme-THY) is well documented for immune support.  Intake results in both a lowered frequency, and a shortened time of infection, as well as in a diminished severity of recurrences.  In addition to thymus glandular, trachea tissue (Cytozyme-Trachea) is also recognized as a powerful immune modulator.  It functions to both stimulate the immune system, and to repress it, in instances of an overactive immune response.  Both its immuno-stimulatory response to viruses and its antigen presenting capacity (APC) are recognized, making it a powerful immuno-supporting product.

Other immune supporting options include Vitamin C (Bio-C Plus, Bio-C Plus 1000, Mixed Ascorbate Powder) and Bio-Immunozyme Forte, a comprehensive broad spectrum immune support product.

Biotics Research Suggestions:

 

Bio-Immunozyme Forte

(Vitamin, Mineral, Glandular Support)

If key nutrients are deficient, the body's ability to fight infections is comprised. BioImmunozyme Forte provides nutritional support for all of the key deficiencies related to the immune system. At low does it is a foundational supplement providing key nutrients in balanced ratios and can be used to bolster the body's natural preventative function. It can also be used at higher doses to activate or support the body's fight against the microbial kingdom.

UltraVir-X

(Botanical, Herbal Support)

UltraVir-X is a high tech product designed to feed the cells which attack viruses. Synergistic vitamins and minerals provide support for this proprietary blend of powerful botanicals. The botanical agents serve as antioxidants, immune modulators, and as anti-inflammatory agents.

IAG

(Immune Modulating Powder)

This highly refined powder contains up to 99% pure arabinogalactans. Arabinogalactans function as immune modulators, enhancing or decreasing the immune function as needed. It is the arabinogalactans content of Echinacea which is responsible for its anti-microbial reputation, and it only contains about 6% of the arabinogalactans, IAG contains up to 99%! One researcher calculated that 1 tsp of IAG has the power of 3-5 bottles of commercially available liquid Echinacea. This powder mixes well with juice; it is the perfect immune enhancing food for children with chronic or acute infections.

ADP

(Natural Antibiotic, Antifungal, Antibacterial)

Oregano Oil has been used in Europe as an antibiotic and antifungal agent. Recently it has also been shown to assist in the elimination of certain strains of amoebas. Many reports by physicians have shown that ADP has even been effective in preventing dysentery when traveling abroad.

Water, Not Fluids

Possibly the greatest non-drug prevention for the flu is drinking enough water every day! Notice we did not say drink enough fluids every day. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and even juices are all dehydrating.

It is extremely important to drink enough pure water every day. Simple, pure, taken fro granted water is one of nature's best natural detoxifiers. Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of pure water daily.

Diet

Diet is another extremely important issue regarding influenza prevention. Possibly the most important dietary change a person can make is the prevention of influenza is to include fatty acids (EFA's) in the diet. This can provide a tremendous boost to the immune system.

The product Mixed EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids) from Biotics has a combination of Omega 3,6, and 9 fatty acids. This cost effective, virtually tasteless oil can be easily added to any diet to increase cellular membrane integrity, hormone regulation, and antibody activity.

Junk fats, i.e., hydrogenated oils and Trans fatty acids should be absolutely avoided. Junk fats result in inhibition of the metabolism of linolenic acid (LA) and alpha linolenic acids (ALA) and contribute to immune dysfunction and susceptibility to infection (flu). Other dietary suggestions include increasing natural sulfur foods such as garlic, onions, brussel sprouts, etc. and eliminating sugar from the diet.

Bio-C Plus

Bio-C Plus, 100 Tabs by Biotics Research

Bio-C Plus by Biotics Research provides vitamin C as mixed mineral ascorbates combined with bioflavonoids, SOD and catalase. Mixed ascorbates are less likely to cause digestive distress than regular ascorbic acid at this level. Use Bio-C Plus wherever the need for vitamin C is determined.

A few indications for Vitamin C may include: general immune support, detoxification of copper, menopausal symptoms, heart disease, oxidative stress, stronger bones, support against cold and flu viruses, and adrenal dysfunction.

Vitamin C is also a thermal regulator. Body temperatures change far less in extreme heat or cold with adequate levels of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is depleted by sugar, stress, aspirin, coffee, alcohol, aging, smoking, analgesics, antibiotics, anti-depressants, anti-coagulants, steroids, baking soda and high fevers.

Bio-D-Mulsion Forte - Product Image

Bio-D-Mulsion Forte

Bio D Mulsion Forte by Biotics Research

Bio-D-Mulsion Forte from Biotics Research Corporation supplies 2,000 IU per drop of vitamin D3 as
a micro-emulsion for enhanced absorption and utilization, which is particularly important for those with malabsorption conditions. Clinical use of Biotics’ micro-emulsified vitamin D provides significant improvements in serum levels of 25-OH-vitamin D following supplementation.

Safe - Conservative regimen of Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® supplies necessary vitamin D (as emulsified D3) without the increased risk of hypercalcemia commonly associated with single, large dose therapies – especially important in an outpatient setting.

Effective - One (1) drop daily of Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® (2,000 IU) increased 25(OH)D concentrations in vitamin D deficient children 202% in six weeks, effectively tripling 25(OH)D levels.

Easy to Administer for Greater Compliance - Simply dispense one (1) drop from the bottle directly onto the tongue each day.

First published ahead of print April 15, 2008 as doi:10.1210/jc.2007-2790
Additionally, Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® contains no artificial colorants or flavorings and no propylene glycol.

Cost Effective - Of the three regimens tested, the one using
Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® is by far the most cost effective.
(less than a nickel per day - less than $1.50 per month!)

The majority of people in the United States
do not synthesize sufficient vitamin D in
order to meet physiological requirements.

Evidence clearly suggests vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency is widespread in the
developed world. Additionally, we now know the previously defined Upper Limit for safe intake of vitamin D was set far too low, and the physiologic requirement is
significantly higher than previously believed.

With the discovery of vitamin D receptors in tissues other than the gut and bone - particularly the brain, breast, prostate and lymphocytes - recent research suggests the utilization of higher amounts of supplemental vitamin D3 for a wider range of
applications in order to maintain and improve patients’ health.

Bio-D-Mulsion® & Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® from Biotics
Research Corporation both supply vitamin D3 as a
micro-emulsion for enhanced absorption and utilization, which is particularly important for those with malabsorption conditions. Clinical use of Biotics’ micro-emulsified vitamin D provides significant improvements in serum levels of
25-OH-vitamin D following supplementation.

Bio-D-Mulsion® supplies 400 IU of vitamin D3 per drop, while Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® supplies 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 per drop.

While we are all familiar with the importance of vitamin D in calcium absorption and bone metabolism, many may not be aware of the recent research on vitamin D and the widening range of applications available for cholecalciferol, which can be classified as both a vitamin and a pro-hormone.1 Additionally, while it has commonly been assumed the upper limit of safe intake is approximately 1,000 IU per day, we now know that the physiologic requirement of vitamin D may be as high as 4,000 IU per day, which is less than half of the 10,000 IU that can be produced endogenously with just a few minutes of sun exposure.2

Vitamin D Deficiency and Musculoskeletal Health
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with dull, achy musculoskeletal pain that is incompletely responsive to both pharmacologic and manual therapies. The pain may be widespread or confined to a particular area, most commonly the lower back and lumbar spine. The process by which this occurs has been clearly defined: 1) vitamin D deficiency causes a reduction in calcium absorption, 2) production of parathyroid (PTH) hormone is increased to maintain blood calcium levels, 3) PTH results in increased urinary excretion of phosphorus, which leads to hypophosphatemia, 4) insufficient calcium phosphate results in deposition of unmineralized collagen matrix on the endosteal (inside) and periosteal (outside) surface of bones, 5) when the collagen matrix hydrates and swells, it causes pressure on the sensory-innervated periosteum resulting in pain.3 Indeed, several clinical investigations have recently shown vitamin D deficiency is particularly common among people with musculoskeletal pain.4, 5

Non-Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Hypovitaminosis D
Both the peripheral and central nervous systems have multiple sites of action for vitamin D, and it appears likely that vitamin D modulates serotonin and melatonin synthesis and metabolism. Alterations in vitamin D levels appear to explain, at least in part, the adverse psychological effects of sunlight deprivation that often occur due to geographic location and climate.6 Preliminary evidence suggests vitamin D deficiency may also be particularly common among patients with inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, and that vitamin D may modulate inflammatory responses.7, 8, 9

Bio-D-Mulsion® and the Importance of Micro-Emulsification
Biotics Research Corporation’s vitamin D is micro-emulsified to enhance absorption and utilization, which are particularly important for those with malabsorption conditions. Independent clinical experience suggests the micro-emulsion form of
vitamin D provides significant improvements in serum levels of 25-OH-vitamin D following supplementation.10 Each drop of Bio-D-Mulsion® supplies 400 IU of vitamin D3, while each drop of Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® supplies 2,000 IU of vitamin D3. With an increased knowledge of the importance of maintaining adequate vitamin D levels, many clinicians recommend supplementation and annual screening for 25-OH-vitamin D levels, especially for patients at risk for deficiency as well as those who may benefit from supplementation.11

ADP

ADP by Biotics Reserach

A.D.P. - Standardized extract of oregano, emulsified in a sustained release form. A.D.P. is useful with toxic bowel syndrome, intestinal parasites, sub-acute bacterial and viral infections, candida and other fungal/yeast infections. After 14 days on A.D.P. add Lactozyme and Colon Plus Capsules to help restore normal bowel flora. This product should not be used during pregnancy or lactation.

(Natural Antibiotic, Antifungal, Antibacterial)

Oregano Oil has been used in Europe as an antibiotic and antifungal agent. Recently it has also been shown to assist in the elimination of certain strains of amoebas. Many reports by physicians have shown that ADP has even been effective in preventing dysentery when traveling abroad.

Why you may need A.D.P.®:

When modern researchers attempt to unlock Nature’s herbal secrets, they frequently turn to the spices and herbs that have been used for centuries to add zest to a wide range of foods.  Interestingly, long before the advent of refrigeration it was recognized that herbs and culinary spices could slow food spoilage – natural antimicrobial principles were obviously at work.  Food scientists have become increasingly interested in essential oils and aromatic plants.  Attempts are being made to identify the active components of essential oils from spices, among them – the oil of oregano.  So far, analysis has revealed several phenolic compounds including Carvacrol, Thymol, Eugenol, 1,8 cineole, as well as Rosmarinic acid and other antioxidants.  Of these compounds Carvacrol and Thymol are believed to have the greatest biological activity.  A.D.P.® has been proven effective against yeast and parasites (Patent # 5,955,086).  Further research looking at the mechanism of action is indicating that the active components of oil of oregano adversely affect the ability of various microbial organisms to reproduce.

Why your healthcare practitioner recommends A.D.P.® from Biotics Research:

While people have relied on the healing properties of oregano oil for hundreds of years, Biotics Research Corporation was able to dramatically improve the delivery system of oil of oregano.  Many commercially available oregano oil products vary hugely in potency, additionally tinctures and other liquid forms of the oil may be difficult for many people to take as it leaves much to be desired taste-wise.  Furthermore, oil of oregano is mostly absorbed in one region of the small intestine, thus limiting the efficacy of a non-sustained release product in reaching the areas of the small and large intestine more likely to be affected.  Each tablet of A.D.P. supplies a standardized extract of oregano oil (50mg) in a sustained release mechanism as an emulsified form, thus ensuring the ease of dosing and maximizing delivery. A.D.P. is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.  As always, you can count on Biotics Research to provide you with superior nutritional supplements; the “Best of Science and Nature.

    Bio-Immunozyme Forte - Product Image

    Bio-Immunozyme Forte

    Bio-Immunozyme Forte by Biotics Research - A broad-spectrum product containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes, as well as neonatal bovine glandular and organ components known to support immune function. Product is in a base of SOD, catalase, echinacea, methyl-donors and chlorophyll. Use with both chronic and acute-phase immune insufficiency.

    Bio-Immunozyme Forte is a unique, broad-spectrum formula which may be used in lieu of a general multiple vitamin. It consists of a variety of nutrients and factors which support immune function. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids have been well documented in their support of healthy immune function via the immunological activity of leukocytes, interferon, and inflammatory reactions to promote resistance to infection. Neonatal thymus gland concentrate is one of many nutritive elements which support neutrophil production and cell mediated immunity. Cell mediated immunity is crucial in the body’s resistance to yeasts, fungi, parasites, bacteria, and most importantly, viruses, because it is a frontline defense that does not require antibody production. Zinc, an essential cofactor for over 70 enzymes, is of vital importance for the highly proliferating cells of the immune system, particularly monocyte and macrophage function, as well as affecting the number and activity of neutrophil granulocytes and natural killer (NK) cells. Vitamin A maintains a distinct action on cellular immunity. In addition to its role in the support of mucosal surfaces, it also aids in maintaining lymphatic tissues, and in antibody production, particularly that of secretory IgA. Another antioxidant with marked effect on immuno-activity is vitamin E, which in addition to its protective effects on gastric mucosa, has been shown to improve immune responsiveness, as evidenced by a decrease in lipid-peroxidation, ie. PGE2. Other ingredients in Bio-Immunozyme Forte™ include: L-Lysine, Echinacea, Capsicum annum, Chlorophyllins, methyl donors and Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1). As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying "The Best of Science and Nature".

    IAG - Product Image

    IAG

    IAG by Bitocs Research (Immune Modulating Powder)

    The new, enhanced IAG

    In order to provide enhanced immune support benefits, Biotics Research has made an important improvement to IAG. IAG supplies arabinogalactan from the Larch tree, providing galactose and arabinose in a 6:1 ratio. It is a long, densely-branched, non-starch polysaccharide with a galactan backbone and side chains of galactose and arabinose. IAG now contains bioactive polyphenolic flavonoids, including quercetin and taxifilin, and therefore now provides antioxidant activity and chemo protective effects. This change has altered the color of the powder and will now appear slightly darker. You may also notice a slight change in the taste due to its polyphenolic content.

    This highly refined powder contains up to 99% pure arabinogalactans. Arabinogalactans function as immune modulators, enhancing or decreasing the immune function as needed. It is the arabinogalactans content of Echinacea which is responsible for its anti-microbial reputation, and it only contains about 6% of the arabinogalactans, IAG contains up to 99%! One researcher calculated that 1 tsp of IAG has the power of 3-5 bottles of commercially available liquid Echinacea. This powder mixes well with juice; it is the perfect immune enhancing food for children with chronic or acute infections.

    Arabinogalactans are complex carbohydrates that resist human digestion and which have been shown to promote the growth of Lactobacillus in humans.

    IAG supplies Arabinogalactans?long, densely branched, high molecular polysaccharides derived from Larch trees.

    RECOMMENDATION: One (1) teaspoon each day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a health care professional.

    Grams per bottle: 100

    Why you may need IAG™:

    Arabinogalactan is a unique polysaccharide from the cell wall of several different plants, but it is especially prevalent in the inner bark of the larch tree (a variety of pine tree). It has long been noted for its use as an effective prebiotic and dietary fiber, but more and more studies are showing that it deserves mention for its ability to promote the health of the immune system. It has been demonstrated to have immune modulating effects and it also stimulates natural killer (NK) cell activity, which has been linked in medical literature to be physiologically decreased in a number of chronic conditions, particularly those of viral or autoimmune natures. Pediatricians frequently find arabinogalactans to be supportive towards the health of children who have frequent episodes of otitis media.

    Why your healthcare practitioner recommends IAG™ from Biotics Research:

    Despite the fact that it is derived from trees, IAG™ is a mild, slightly sweet tasting powder.  It readily dissolves into water or juice and is a convenient choice for a wide variety of people, including young children and seniors who may be prohibited from taking pills or immune enhancing herbal formulas.  In fact, IAG™ is so palatable, that if a child doesn’t see it being mixed into their juice – they usually won’t be able to detect its presence. Each bottle of IAG™ from Biotics Research Corporation contains 50 servings of arabinogalactans, making it both convenient and economical.  Once again, Biotics Research Corporation brings you "The Best of Science and Nature."
