Bio-Cyanidins supplies polyphenols from the highest quality pine bar extract (Pycnogenol), along with grape seed extract (95% OPCs). As a consequence of these ingredients, Bio-Cyanidins provides superior botanically based antioxidant support.
In 1980, Biotics Research Corporation began investigating the use and production of Spirulina plankton. A leading expert from the University of Texas provided insight into methods of production, as well as pure Spirulina cultures that were the starting culture for our research and production.Production was halted when scientists at Biotics isolated what they considered the “active” principal of Spirulina, the porphyrin ring of chlorophyll. While many claims for the nutritional value of Spirulina have been made, the consensus was the most significant value in Spirulina was chlorophyll. However, the chlorophyll content in Spirulina is low (typically less than 1%).
Porphyra-Zyme — A Concentrated Porphyrin ProductUnlike traditional chlorophyll products, Porphyra-Zyme is a concentrated porphyrin supplement. By increasing the porphyrin content, the heavy metal binding capability is also increased, providing clinicians with a natural, effective “chelating” tool.Porphyrins have the ability to bind divalent metal ions due to the nitrogen atoms of the tetrapyrrole nucleus. The central ion in chlorophyll is magnesium, which is freed from chlorophyll under acidic conditions, permitting other metals to bind in its place. Toxic metals, such as mercury, lead and arsenic, are complexed first. Then excess amounts of other divalent metals, such as calcium, can be complexed by porphyrins.Investigational
