Nutritional Supplements and You
Getting the Right Nutrition
people do not give much thought to the purchase of their nutritional supplements, assuming that they are all basically the same. However, the quality of dietary supplements varies tremendously from manufacturer to manufacturer. Unfortunately, many products are not what they are represented to be. So how can a consumer make an educated choice when purchasing the supplement that are right for them? Your Trusted Healthcare Professional can help! Healthcare Professional s are given exclusive access to the highest quality supplements available, these supplements are not only guaranteed pure, but your healthcare professional can have confidence in their effectiveness based on consistent clinical results (i.e. interpreting the blood analysis).
Many nutrients can oxidize or lose their potency, some quicker than others. Therefore, it is important that manufacturers buy these ingredients in small batches which can be quickly processed and made readily available to the consumer. Manufacturers, who buy these materials in large lots, in an effort to cut costs, may store them for longer periods of time, resulting in less effective products. Manufacturers are not required to test the ease of digestibility of their products and many lack the equipment to do so. Many may try to cram their products’ constituents into small, very hard tablets that are aesthetically pleasing, but do not disintegrate properly. Raw materials can come in forms that are not as effective as other forms. Many companies use the cheapest form available, and the unknowing consumer does not realize that there are differences between the various forms. The FDA doesn’t monitor the contents or purity of nutritional supplements, leaving the nutritional supplement industry poorly regulated from a manufacturing standpoint. This may result in instances of either label claims not being met, or substances being included that are not claimed. (Such as potentially harmful ingredients, including lead and mercury).
Why Your Healthcare Provider Recommends Biotics Research Products
Dr. Gotro relies upon Biotics Research Corporation because we (Biotics) test our supplements on site using state of the art laboratory methods to check for digestibility, approve raw materials and monitor production processes, including the testing of finished products prior to their release. Biotics Research produces each product in isolated rooms to avoid cross contamination and to maintain the purity of each product, ensuring that what is claimed on the label is actually what the consumer gets. Biotics Research Corporation’s products consistently produce reliable results.
More and more people are choosing a natural approach to complement their health care but they are unaware of the possible side effects that can occur between prescriptions and nutrients. Many prescriptions can negatively affect the status of vitamins, minerals and/or trace elements in different ways and vice versa. Dr. Gotro is dedicated to gathering patients’ personal health histories so that he may provide the best guidance in not only suggesting the supplements best for you, but also to safely avoid interactions between drugs and micronutrients. Suggestions can be made when not to use certain supplements or when supplementation is necessary.
Ask Dr.Gotro if Biotics supplements are right for you.

The Well-LIfe Screen
A blood test to detect "increased-risk" conditions.
Well-Life Screen is a blood test which is based on wellness care not disease care.
How it works
The Well-Life Screen is similar to a blood test that you might get in a hospital, but it is much more sensitive than a standard blood test. For example, a typical blood test will red flag blood sugar if the result is over 120.
A blood sugar result this high would generally require prescription medications, medications that most patients are on for the rest of their life. Analyzing results in this way is standard disease care. Identify a disease condition...prescribe a medication.
But the Well-Life Screen is a much more focused blood test, and will yellow flag a blood sugar reading over 95. The Well-Life Screen calls attention to your blood sugar in the early warning stages when health challenges can be addressed with nutraceuticals and lifestyle changes rather than prescription medicines.
