Pioneering Nutrition Company Becomes Incorporated

Our story actually began in the late 1950s when Frank DeLuca set out to help a family member who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Frank began looking for scientific answers in nature to help keep his nephew alive long after medical expectations. It was that illness that inspired his search for medical answers in nature. Bringing several family members together to passionately strive to find holistic remedies, a flagship company in the nutritional supplements industry began.

Biotics Research Corporation incorporated in 1976.

First Company to Manufacture and Market CoQ10 in the United States

In 1979, few people knew about the fat-soluble substance called Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Through research networks, Biotics Research became interested in CoQ10 as a nutrient. Renowned biochemist Karl August Folkers had identified the chemical structure and began finding links between CoQ10 and heart health. Familiar with growing tissue culture because of the company’s origins in laboratory research, Biotics Research scientists began their extraction of CoQ10 from bovine heart muscle. Later, Biotics Research would become the first company to recognize how CoQ10 is best absorbed by the body and developed their proprietary emulsification process.

Because of Biotics Research Corporation, CoQ10 became available as a dietary supplement in the US markets.

Love Canal

Complaints of birth defects in the late 1970s spurred the EPA to commission Biogenics, a mobile genetics toxicology lab (primarily owned by Biotics Research) to conduct genetic testing. In 1980, reports of the Love Canal study were published in national magazines highlighting the link between noxious waste and increased genetic risk.

After being commissioned to perform a risk assessment at Love Canal, Biogenics found 11 of the 36 subjects studied to have damaged chromosones, which led to an emergency order signed by President Carter and the relocation of residents. 

Formula Patented for Augmentation of Testosterone Levels 

Another Biotics Research patent is filed with the USPTO. b-Vital® is a patented formula clinically demonstrated to augment testosterone levels and provide a sense of well-being in men. Biotics Research found the combination of the Andean tuber, maca and antler, such as from deer or elk, is useful in raising testosterone levels in men with low normal or low testosterone levels, while enhancing vitality.

With a catalogue of over 300 nutrition products, men’s health is just one of the many categories of nutritional support Biotics Research offers.

Landmark Research at Boston Children's Hospital

One of the first companies to bring an emulsified form of vitamin D to the market, Biotics Research pursued validation of their invention through research at Boston Children’s Hospital. The objective of the study, published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, was to compare the safety and efficacy of vitamin D3 in raising serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D[25(OH)D] in infants and toddlers. In this clinical study, levels of 25(OH)D increased from 13.7 ng/ml to 41.2 ng/ml (202%) in a 6-week time period with 50 mcg (2000IU) of the emulsified vitamin D.

This study with Boston Children’s Hospital is one of many research partnerships Biotics Research is proud to have made over the past 44 years.

Formula Patented for Control of Acid Reflux with Botanicals 

HCl-Ease® is the latest in a long history of patented nutritional formulas created by Biotics Research. Designed by Dr. Gary Lasneski, and evaluated at his clinic, HCl-Ease® is a highly effective and targeted nutritional formula to support gastroesophogeal health and comfort.

In 2007, Biotics Research received Patent #9629887 for HCl-Ease®, a formula for the “control of acid reflux with botanicals".

Work with Renown Cardiologist to Patent Formula to Lower Blood Pressure

BioCardioSirt BP® is verified as the first and only patented dietary supplement proven to treat high blood pressure. Biotics Research has a long history of developing products in partnerships with clinicians. For cardiovascular support, every product was developed in concert with Mark Houston, MD, ABAAM, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Direction of the Hypertension Institute, including BioCardioSirt BP®.

BioCardioSirt BP® has been awarded 2 US patents for lowering blood pressure.

Integrity

A family-owned company for over four decades, Biotics Research understands that cutting corners of any kind undermines the trust you need when buying nutritional supplements. In an industry often compared to the Wild West, we continue to raise the quality standards such as acquiring sustainably-sourced raw materials, testing ingredients for pollutants such as solvents (even when not required to do so), establishing expiration dates for over 300 unique formulas, getting additional 3rd party testing of finished products, and so much more.

With Biotics Research, you can be assured of the purest, most efficacious nutritional formulas on the market.

Pioneers

When glancing back at history, a few key players stood at the helm of nutritional science, guiding the direction of the supplement industry. Biotics Research is one such key player, not only designing effective nutritional formulas, but advancing nutritional science through its partnered research, development of emulsification delivery systems, invention of plant matrix minerals and the creation of a tableting base to provide a solution to non-nutritive fillers found in most supplements. Biotics Research is proud to have written some early chapters of nutrition history, while continuing to advance science.

Research-Driven

Not just a part of our company name, research is the thread of our corporate fabric. From studies with clinicians using select patient populations to partnerships with institutions such as Boston Children’s Hospital, we understand the importance of clinical results when recommending nutritional products to your patients.

Sourcing & Purity

When sourcing raw materials, not only is purity important, but also its impact on the environment. We choose to source raw materials from suppliers who are dedicated to transparency and sustainability. That way, the ingredients in your nutritional formulas are not only pure and efficacious, the safety of the environment is also upheld.
