Vitamins and Nutritional Supplements by Function
Adrenal & HPA Axis Supplements

Vitamins and Supplements for Adrenal & HPA Axis Function

The HPA axis, also known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is a complex neuro-chemical pathway that must be regulated in order for the adrenal glands to function properly.

 

For more information on the lab tests that will discover the state of your hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands, visit the Endocrine Lab Tests section of this site.

 

We've included examples of a few products that address problems with the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands.

Biotics Product

ADB5-Plus

ADB5-Plus is a vitamin, mineral, herbal, glandular, and enzyme formulation for adrenal support is formulated for professional clinical application in any adjunctive nutritional protocol to support and normalize adrenal function in such common contemporary conditions as adrenal hypofunction (Hypoadrenia), adrenal insufficiency, postural hypotension, ligament laxity, reactive hypoglycemia, low blood pressure (Hypotension), immune insufficiency, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fatigue, hypoglycemia, cognitive dysfunction, depression, anxiety, and stress.

Cytozyme-PT/HPT

Cytozyme-PT/HPT

Cytozyme-PT/HPT contains a source of neonatal bovine pituitary and hypothalamus. Use with pituitary/hypothalamus dysfunction, gastric hyper-acidity, adrenal hyper-function, insomnia, epilepsy, anorexia, inability to gain or lose weight, thyroid hypo-function secondary to hypo-function of the anterior pituitary, carbohydrate sensitivity, neuro-muscular disorders. With thyroid hypofunction consider adding Thyrostim and GTA and/or Meda-Stim. Also consider L-Tyrosine or Cu-Zyme.

Melatonin

Melatonin

Melatonin regulates the metabolic rate during the change of seasons, spurs fertility hormones, alters the size and function of the thyroid and adrenal glands, rids depression, helps seasonal affective disorder (SAD), schizophrenia, and manic depression. Melatonin also supports healthy sleep patterns and to fall asleep faster. Low dose and easy to swallow tablets.

Adrenal Hyperfunction Supplements

Vitamins and Supplements for Adrenal Hyperfunction

Excessive activity of the adrenal gland causes excessive production of one or more adrenal hormones (aldosterone, corticosteroids, androgenic steroids, epinephrine and/or norepinephrine). Long before you develop a syndrome called Cushing's Syndrome, you should balance the hormones produced by the adrenal glands.

 

For more information on the lab tests that will discover the state of your adrenal glands, visit the Endocrine Lab Tests section of this site.

We've included examples of a few products that address the problem of Adrenal Hyperfunction.

HepaGlycyrrhizic

Antioxidants

Antioxidants Supplements

Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Many experts believe this damage is a factor in the development of blood vessel disease (atherosclerosis), cancer, and other conditions.


If you feel that you've had serious damage to your body you should have a lab test to find out. Take a look at the possible tests in the toxic and essential elements lab tests section.

We've included examples of a few products that are powerful antioxidants.

L-Glutathione Power™

L-Glutathione Power™

L-Glutathione Power™ provides 1 g of glutathione in a convenient powder to help support antioxidative status, cellular and immune health, healthy aging, a healthy inflammatory response, and normal detoxification.

 

The body may need increased amounts of glutathione during the aging process or during times of increased toxic burden and oxidative stress, as the body’s ability to produce glutathione decreases with age and any prolonged use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and certain medications.


Recommended Use:

Take 3 grams (approximately one scoop) per day or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

CoQ-Zyme 30™

CoQ-Zyme 30™

CoQ-Zyme 30™ has 30 mg of emulsified CoEnzyme Q10 per tablet.
CoQ10 is an oil soluble nutrient and to get good therapeutic results you have to use at least 90 mg a day of CoQ. With Biotics Research CoQ product, you're going to achieve blood levels that are at least 3 times that of what the non-emulsified forms provide. This is because Biotics Research has EMULSIFIED their CoQ. Taking one CoQ-Zyme 30mg tablet a day will provide you with approximately the same blood levels achieved with 90 mg of the dry form and 300mg of the standard oil form.

If your therapy requires increased levels of CoQ, CoQ is an accessory nutrient in the products Bio-Cardiozyme Forte and BioCardio Paks. There is a reason why it's in there at a low dose. If Biotics Research put 60 mg of emulsified CoQ in these two products, the price of the product may be prohibitive to some people. If one's cardiac problem is significant, CoQ-Zyme 30 can be added in addition to Bio-Cardiozyme Forte or in addition to the BioCardio Paks.

 

Every cardiologist should have their patients on CoEnzyme Q.

Dentists are starting to use quite a bit of CoQ10 in periodontal disease and seem to be getting excellent results. The level where we are seeing results in periodontal disease is 60 to 90 mg of CoQ-Zyme30 a day.

Another use for CoQ is to support immune function. The immune system uses a lot of energy, so indications of allergy and other immune problems often resolve well if the patient is supplemented with CoQ-Zyme 30. There is a whole new field in immunology where Q10 is being used. There was a study at the Folker Symposium, where CoQ was shown to increase the IgG serum levels. IgG is a part of the serum immunogloublins that are needed by the body to fight disease.

Recommended Uses:
CoQ-Zyme 30™ is used where increased oxygenation is required, such as cardiac stress, immune dysfunction, periodontal disease, high blood pressure, allergies, asthma, M.S., diabetes, ulcers and viral infections. Of all of the above, probably the place that CoEnzyme Q10 is most frequently used is in hypertension. Secondly, for cardiac insufficiency and thirdly, (this is a developing issue), periodontal disease.

Dosing: 1-2 tablets, 3 times a day with meals

Lipoic Acid Plus

Lipoic Acid Plus

Lipoic acid (alpha-lipoic acid, thioctic acid) is a sulfur-containing enzyme helper involved in carbohydrate degradation. Lipoic acid functions in the oxidation of carbohydrate by the mitochondria, particles in the cell devoted to energy production.

Lipoic Acid, as a fat-soluble co-enzyme, operates as a cofactor in the metabolism of glucose and oxygen utilization.

Lipoic Acid works to recycle and reactivate such free radical scavengers as Vitamins C and E, thereby maximizing utilization of these vitamins as antioxidants.

We use Lipoic Acid in those cases where a potentiation of antioxidation is needed. We also use this product with diabetes.

Recommended Uses:
Consider with heavy metal body burdens, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, neuromuscular disorders and other free radical problems.

Dosing: 1-2 capsules, 3 times a day.

L-Arginine

L-Arginine

L-Arginine is a free form amino acid at 700 mg per capsule. We use it with free radical problems, wound healing, male infertility, cystic fibrosis, elevated blood cholesterol, liver dysfunction and degeneration and to help release nitric oxide in the body.

L-Arginine will stimulate thymus function when used at 6000 mg (or six grams) or higher per day. This is an important point for older adults where reduced thymus function is common. In other words, where you're trying to get the thymus to produce the thymus hormones, thymulin and thymosin, and there's not a great amount of the thymus body left to perform this task.

Recommended Uses:
Use with free radical problems, wound healing, male infertility, cystic fibrosis, elevated cholesterol, liver dysfunction and degeneration. Product will stimulate thymus function when used at 6000 mg or higher per day (use with L-Lysine).

Supplements for the Growing Child

Vitamins and Supplements for the Growing Child

Nutrition for kids is based on the same ideas as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same types of things, such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. These are called nutrients. Children need different amounts of specific nutrients at different ages.


Food packed with nutrients — with no or limited sugar, saturated fat, or salt added to it — is considered nutrient dense. Focusing on nutrient-dense foods helps kids get the nutrients they need while limiting overall calories.

We've included examples of a few products that support the growing child.

ProbioMed™ Kids

ProbioMed™ Kids

ProbioMed™ Kids is a custom, synergistic probiotic formula offering 10 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per dose. It includes 11 diverse, well-researched strains, including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotic bacteria strains and the nonpathogenic yeast strain, Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii). The amounts of each strain are clearly disclosed, and the formulation is designed to promote gastrointestinal microbial diversity in children. These chewable tablets have a natural berry flavor sweetened only with monk fruit. They are free of any artificial sweeteners.
 

Recommended Use:

Children ages 4 years of age and older: Chew 1 tablet per day with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Supplements for the Eyes and Vision

Vitamins and Supplements for the Eyes and Vision

Carrots may be the food best known for helping your eyes. But other foods and their nutrients may be more important for keeping your eyesight keen as you age.


Vitamins C and E, zinc, lutein, zeaxanthin, and omega-3 fatty acids all play a role in eye health. They can help prevent cataracts, clouding of your eye lens. They may also fight the most-likely cause of vision loss when you're older - age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

For a discussion of the eyes and the sense of sight go here.

We've included examples of a few products that support the eyes and vision.

OcuForce™ Blue

Warning: Do not use if pregnant or nursing.

Pregnenolone 25

Pregnenolone 25

Pregnenolone is an endogenous steroid hormone synthesized from cholesterol. As a "mother hormone", pregnenolone can be converted to other hormones, including the sex hormones.

For example, pregnenolone can be converted to progesterone, which can then be converted to DHEA, the precursor of androstenedion, the precursor to testosterone and estrone. Pregnenolone is also a neurosteroid having anxiolytic properties. It is found in high concentrations in the brain, where along with other neurosteroids, it impacts synaptic function, is neuroprotective, and enhances myelinization. Pregnenolone is produced principally in the adrenals, but also in the liver, skin, brain, sex glands and the retina. It is formed from cholesterol.

Recommended Uses:
Consider using Pregnenolone 25 with arthritis, with most hormone insufficiencies, depression, fatigue, memory loss, macular degeneration and moodiness.

Pregnenolone 25 is also recommended when hypoadrenia is found on the Adrenal Stress Index test at a dose of 1-2 capsules once daily with food. With hypoadrenia we also supplement with Bio-3B-G, 3 tablets 3x/day between meals.

Dosing: 1-2 capsules per day with meals.

Contegra

Contegra

Contegra is a true excitatory/balanced formula, directed toward optimizing both adrenal and thyroid  function, and both excitatory catecholamine) and inhibitory (GABA) pathways in the nervous system.

Contegra may be used alone or in concert with other formulas when more support of particular pathways is needed. Contegra provides Eleutherococcus and members of the B complex particularly Pantethine which offer adrenal support. N-acetyl tyrosine and Betaine (trimethylglycine) target excitatory signaling. Suntheanine is included for inhibitory support and potassium iodide provides the thyroid with requisite iodine. Delivery into the systemic circulation is boosted via inclusion of the NSB proprietary blend. When adrenal and thyroid functions are low concomitant with imbalanced neurotransmitters, HPA endocrine support can make a great difference in therapeutic intervention outcomes.
 

Use Contegra whenever adrenal/thyroid support is needed, during the Initial, Restoration or Maintenance Phases of therapy.

Glandular/Organ Specific Supplements

Glandular/Organ Specific Supplements

Glandular/organ specific supplements, also commonly called glandulars, are products made from various organs and tissues of mammals, usually cattle. ... Dr. Lee and other early nutritional pioneers felt the degenerative processes of a specific organ could be reversed by ingesting the necessary raw materials peculiar to that organ.

We've included examples of a few products that are Glandular/Organ Specific.

Adrenal Complex

Adrenal Complex

Adrenal Complex is a glandular-based product designed to support overall adrenal function. Fortified with N-acetyl tyrosine, vitamin C, and a comprehensive spectrum of B vitamins, it is ideal for the support of a normal stress response due to its ability to help promote normal cortisol metabolism and catecholamine production (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).

 

Recommended Use:

Take 2 capsules per day with meals or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Thyrostim™

Thyrostim™

Thyrostim™ is a product that gives support to the thyroid and pituitary glands. Therefore, we use this product for the support of hypothyroidism and hypothyroidism secondary to hypofunction of the anterior pituitary gland.

Thyrostim™ should be used with Optimal EFAs or BioMega-3, at two of each, three times a day; or if the problem is significant, levels as high as (3) three, 3 times daily may be required for 21 to 30 days.

With primary thyroid hypofunction, the TSH will almost always be increased above 4.4. With thyroid hypofunction that is secondary to hypofunction of the anterior pituitary, the TSH will generally be reduced below 2.0. In some cases, most especially when the TSH is increased above 8.0, the problem may not correct with supplements alone; hormonal replacement may be required. We have found that if you are unable to return the TSH to the normal range after 30-45 days of supplemental support, you will probably require hormonal replacement to normalize thyroid function.

When required, the hormonal replacement seems to work better if you are on a small amount of Thyrostim™ and Optimal EFAs or BioMega-3. Often, the supplemental support will allow you to go to a lower level of the hormonal replacement and still achieve the desired results.

If taking thyroid medication, reduction may as necessary under the guidance of a physician.

Recommended Uses:
Use with primary thyroid hypofunction (decreased T-4) and hypofunction of the thyroid secondary to hypofunction of the anterior pituitary (TSH decreased below 3.0 with symptoms of thyroid hypofunction present).

Thyrostim™ should always be used with Optimal EFAs or BioMega-3.

If the problem has been identified as primary thyroid hypofunction add GTA or GTA Forte II.

If the T-4 to T-3 ratio is weighted to the T-4 side use Meda-Stim. In any case, Thyrostim, GTA/GTA Forte II and/or Meda-Stim should always be used with iodine (Liquid Iodine Forte or Iodizyme-HP).

Dosing: 2-3 tablets, 3 times a day with meals.

Bio-Glycozyme Forte is the best broad-spectrum glycemic product available in the marketplace. There's nothing that even comes close to it.

 

Recommended Uses:
Bio-Glycozyme Forte™ is used in reactive hypoglycemia; for B complex insufficiency in situations where we need the accessory nutrients to go along with the B vitamins; for patients who can fall asleep but can't stay asleep; and again for reactive hypoglycemia. Also, for patients who fall asleep or want to crash up to two hours after they've eaten, (but not immediately after they have eaten), Bio-Glycozyme Forte will usually work because this is a strong sign of reactive hypoglycemia. Patients who want to fall asleep immediately after eating have carbohydrate sensitivity.

If your blood pressure is very low also, you may need to add a small amount of Cytozyme-AD (neonatal adrenal tissue). This nutrient is also in Bio-Glycozyme Forte™, but in some cases, the amount may not be sufficient.

Together with a reasonable diet, Bio-Glycozyme Forte™ will generally bring the reactive hypoglycemic person around very quickly and you will see significant changes in very short order.

DOSING & IMPORTANT NOTE ON TAKING THIS PRODUCT: Take 2-3 tablets, 3 times a day at 10:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and 2 hours after supper when the blood sugar is dropping and at the point you may be entering into a crash-and-burn syndrome. If you are able to fall asleep but can not stay asleep, add 3 tablets just before bedtime.

If taking the product on an empty stomach causes distress, dose with meals with 1 Betaine Plus-HP. With some patients we have found that although their blood sugar is high, Bio-Glycozyme Forte will often provide results for the patient where GlucoBalance did not provide results.

Nutritional Considerations: Coffee, alcohol, tobacco, sugar, raw oysters, estrogen- replacement- therapy, and birth control pills interfere with B vitamins and may cause a greater need for them.

GlucoBalance

GlucoBalance

GlucoBalance is an excellent formula for insulin dependent diabetics, non-insulin dependent diabetics, patients with increased triglycerides, increased LDL cholesterol and decreased HDL cholesterol, and always with hyperinsulinism (Syndrome-X/Metabolic Syndrome).


Dr. David Brownstein has stated "I haven't found any one supplement that will increase HDL cholesterol faster than GlucoBalance®. It has been a silver bullet for this application." Of course the other means for increasing HDL cholesterol are by increasing exercise and losing weight; one generally goes with the other.


Beyond weight loss, dietary controls to reduce carbohydrate and exercise, I have not found a better way to increase HDL cholesterol than GlucoBalance® even in cases where the decreased HDL is a genetic problem.

 

David Brownstein, M.D. conducted a clinical study using GlucoBalance® for increased triglycerides and the average reduction of triglyceride levels for study participants was 26.4 percent! One of the patients went from 600 to less than 300 in just 30 days.


Consequently, there was a corresponding improvement in the total cholesterol to HDL ratio, from 5:1 initially before supplementation, to 4:1 post supplementation at the end of the trial. In fact, the trend for the entire study group was lower cholesterol, lower LDL, lower triglycerides and higher HDL. Note: If you are taking insulin, ensure that you take your blood sugar levels frequently as Glucobalance® will often have a dramatic effect on insulin needs. Your insulin dose may have to be modified accordingly.


Recommended Uses:
Excellent formula for insulin dependent diabetics, non-insulin dependent diabetics, elevated triglycerides with low HDL, carbohydrate sensitivity and dysinsulinism.


Dosing: 2-3 capsules, 3 times a day with meals.

Homocysteine Supreme™

Homocysteine Supreme™

Homocysteine Supreme™ contains synergistic nutrients, including folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, known to facilitate the efficient metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine Supreme™ maintains a healthy homocysteine pathway, allowing for the normal production of its necessary and important end products. These include the sulfur-containing amino acids taurine and cysteine, and the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. An optimally functioning homocysteine pathway provides methyl and sulfur groups for biochemical reactions, such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, and brain and cardiovascular health.
Recommended Use:

Take 2 capsules per day with meals or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Optimal EFAs® Caps

Optimal EFAs® Caps

EFAs or Essential Fatty acids are called "essential" because your body does not make them on it's own. They must be provided via dietary sources.

Optimal EFAs from Biotics Research Corp. is a unique blend of optimally balanced essential fatty acids — ALA, EPA, DHA, GLA and Oleic Acid — from fish, flaxseed and borage oils.

The American population generally consumes too many "bad" fats, and not enough "good" fats. This unbalanced consumption can lead to pain, inflammation and high blood-lipid levels. Research shows that the consumption of a proportionally balanced combination of essential fatty acids such as found in Optimal EFAs contributes to overall health.

Recommended Uses:
Inflammation, endocrine dysfunction, free radical problems, lipid/glycemic problems and highly refined diets. This is an excellent long term fatty acid supplement.

Dosing: 2 to 4 capsules, 3 times a day with meals.

Bio-C Plus 1000

Bio-C Plus 1000

This is a product that we use when we want a mixed ascorbate tablet that contains a higher level of vitamin C that is buffered. This is a mixed ascorbate product that can be used at high levels without causing bowel distress for most people.

Bio-Immunozyme Forte

Bio-Immunozyme Forte

Bio-Immunozyme Forte is a broad-spectrum product containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes, as well as neonatal bovine gland and organ components known to support immune function. It's in a base of superoxide dismutase, catalase, Echinacea, methyl-donors, OOrganik15 and chlorophyll. It's probably one of the top four sellers that Biotics Research produces and it works wonderfully. I think one of the reasons that many doctors buy it is that it works so well in low doses for the chronically ill patient. With many immune products that are available in the marketplace, you have to give patients 10, 15, 20 capsules a day to get any results. In the chronic phase with Bio-Immunozyme Forte, one tablet, three times a day is generally sufficient. 


Hepatitis A, B and C have become a serious problem in the U. S. The basis of support for this problem is to use Bio-Immunozyme Forte, two tablets, two or three times a day along with Cytozyme-THY, which is neonatal thymus, at four tablets three times a day. The patient must also take Livotrit-Plus beginning at one tablet, three times a day and gradually increase to a maximum of six tablets per day. Beta-TCP should be used at two tablets three times a day anytime Livotrit-Plus is used. The Beta-TCP will open the bile tract and ensure the virus and other toxins maintained in the liver are given a route out of the body. BioProtect is your antioxidant at three capsules a day. Take Dismuzyme Granules at one teaspoon three times a day, and Cytozyme-LV, the neonatal liver, at two tablets three times a day. The 21st Century Homeopathic for Lymphatic Drainage and Virus should also be used.


Dosing: In the acute phase of an infection use 2-3 tablets, 3-4 times a day with food. In the chronic phase use 1 tablet, 3 times a day with meals. 


For Hepatitis A, B or C, use with Cytozyme-THY, Livotrit-Plus, Bio-Protect, Dismuzyme Plus Granules, IAG, Beta-TCP, Bio-C Plus 1000, E-200 High Gamma, Ultra Vir-X, 21st Century Homeopathic for Lymphatic Drainage, 21st Century Homeopathic for Virus, and Cytozyme-LV.
