BioPreparation Label Redesign

The BioPreparation labels were changed to make them more FDA compliant.

  1. Instead of listing the specific names of Spirulina pacifica, and Spirulina platensis separately, the labels now list Spirulina collectively as one.

  2. Hypromellose is now listed as a separate ingredient. It is used as an emulsifier, thickening and suspending agent, and an alternative to animal gelatin capsules. This makes BioPreparation vegetarian-friendly containing no animal ingredients.

  3. The “certification” statement on the label was taken off because the FDA would require certification for EVERY single batch be submitted to them. This would create an unreasonable paperwork nightmare. Rather than raise the price of your bottle, the manufacturer chose to take the advertising “claim” off the label. Rest assured that Dr. Kiriac still adheres to the same quality control he always has. For details, go to: Quality_Assurance.

The ingredients, formula and quality of BioPreparation have not changed, just the cosmetic appearance of the label.

Whole Food Products vs. Supplements


Interactions With Medications
By Russell Louie

One of the most frequently asked questions (FAQ) is, “Will your holistic products have any interactions or contraindications with medications (drugs) for me or my pet?” While this is certainly a valid concern with isolated supplements (like a Vitamin C pill), fortunately our whole superfood products (like an orange) do not have these disadvantages. That is why we focus on WHOLE food products that balance the WHOLE body rather than just treat the symptoms like isolated supplements. The short answer to the question is, “At this time, we know of no known interactions or contraindications using BioPreparation, BioSuperfood, Seacure or ALPHA-G with any drug (medication), vitamin, herb, supplement, homeopathic remedy or other holistic products.

This FAQ highlights one major difference between our whole superfood products and drugs (and even most isolated supplements). Drugs and supplements tend to have high concentrations of active ingredients to treat just the symptoms. For example, an arthritis supplement to treat joint pain might include high concentrations of glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate. Did you know high doses of glucosamine could have side effects? An isolated Vitamin C supplement may have high doses of ascorbic acid (1,000-2,000 mg.). A doctor or vet would rightfully be concerned if you were taking or giving therapeutic doses of Vitamin C in the 3,000-10,000 mg. per day range and taking certain medications, undergoing cancer treatment or going in for surgery. In contrast, our whole food products BioPreparation and BioSuperfood have less than 5 mg. Vitamin C per capsule. An orange only has 60-70 mg. of ascorbic acid. No doctor or vet should be concerned with any interactions or contraindications with medications (drugs) for you or your pet. Does this mean there is no holistic benefits and our products do not balance the immune system? Consider these studies.

Scientists discovered the beneficial nutrient in citrus fruits that prevents scurvy is Vitamin C. What is not commonly known is by taking isolated Vitamin C in the form of an ascorbic acid supplement one only gets rid of the symptoms of scurvy. When the ascorbic acid supplement is discontinued the symptoms and disease returns. However, if one gets Vitamin C made from an extract of whole green peppers not only do the symptoms disappear but the scurvy is gone when discontinued. Vitamin C in the form of a whole food product contains rutin, bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, selenium and zinc that Nature dictated is needed for Vitamin C to work optimally in our body. All these complementary nutrients are present in whole food sources of Vitamin C (for example, green peppers, oranges, rose hips, acerola cherries, algae). By eating only an isolated supplement with just ascorbic acid or by juicing an orange and throwing away the pulp and peel, one is missing all the above necessary nutrients. The question now becomes, Do you want just the absence of symptoms for you and your pet or do you want “wholistic” wellness?

Here is another important benefit of using whole food products. The more expensive Vitamin C supplements are buffered to prevent nausea for those with a sensitive stomach (cannot tolerate ascorbic acid). Nature included the buffer ingredients needed in the pulp and skin of whole food sources of Vitamin C (the white pulpy part of the orange). So, who is smarter—the scientist that discovered we need to put back the buffer ingredients in isolated Vitamin C supplements or Nature? New research shows that 90% of the antioxidant power of whole foods is contained in the pulp and peel. Do you want ALL the benefits Nature put in whole foods for you and your pet or do you want to just treat the symptoms?

We believe true “wholistic” wellness is more than just the absence of symptoms. STOP supplementing the symptoms and balance the WHOLE body with WHOLE food products for optimum health and Freedom From Illness.
