When the biostation doctors wanted to offer our patients high quality, effective supplements to maximize the results of our wellness protocols, we couldn’t find products that stood up to our high standards and rigorous testing. So, we designed our own. We insist on only using the highest-quality, pharmaceutical grade nutrients proven to be effective and safe. Pharmaceutical grade ingredients are over 99% in purity and contain no binders, fillers, excipients (substances used to dilute drugs), dyes or unknown additives. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins are also formulated to yield a higher degree of bioavailability–the degree at which it is absorbed into the body’s system. What does this mean for our patients? Maximum health benefits and faster results with no dangerous side effects.

When the doctors at the biostation wanted to offer quality, effective supplements to patients, we couldn't find products that would stand up to our high standards and rigorous testing. We designed our own pharmaceutical-grade supplements. Here's some more information about how our products are different, the types of supplements available, and some of our newest products.
To be considered pharmaceutical grade, a supplement must use nutrients and other ingredients with over 99% purity. The supplement has to be safe and effective, and it can't contain fillers, binders, dyes, or unknown additives. The unnecessary substances in standard supplements can sometimes lead to unpleasant side effects. A pharmaceutical-grade supplement lists all of its ingredients, but an over-the-counter or OTC supplement doesn't have to meet this requirement.
Pharmaceutical-grade vitamins are also formulated for higher bioavailability. This means that people can absorb nutrients and other ingredients in supplements more quickly. The supplements can stay in their system longer as well, letting people reduce the frequency of their doses. Patients can also absorb a larger percentage of a pharmaceutical-grade supplement instead of discarding the nutrient as waste. This increases the effectiveness of pharmaceutical-grade supplements, maximizing their health benefits.
At the biostation, we also use natural ingredients and the exact substances used in clinical trials whenever possible. Evidence from several studies indicates that vitamins extracted from natural plants are more bioavailable and effective than synthetic versions. Using the ingredients that experts in diverse medical and scientific specialties chose when they tested new supplements in clinical trials also helps ensure the quality of our products.
We offer a wide range of supplements to improve your health, help prevent illnesses, and aid in extending your life. Here are some of the types of high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade supplements you can find at the biostation.
Achieving a healthy weight is important, and maintaining your weight is also essential. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), people who weigh more than average could have higher risks for many chronic diseases, including heart disease, type two diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, and some forms of cancer.
As people age, their metabolism slows, and they often gain fat, lose muscle, and exercise less. Fortunately, the biostation offers supplements to help you maintain a healthy weight. Our bCardio Blood Sugar Support supplement can help you maintain healthy glucose levels, reduce cravings, and increase your energy levels.
It contains chromium polynicotinate, a niacin-bound chromium compound that people sometimes call the glucose tolerance factor. It helps make insulin more effective by assisting it in attaching to receptor sites on the cell membranes inside your body. This reduces insulin resistance, one of the major causes of type two diabetes.
It also has cinnamon extract. A study published in Diabetes Care 2003 showed it can help reduce blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity for people with type one and type two diabetes. Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent glycation damage from high blood sugar, a potential cause of kidney damage, impaired vision, nerve damage, and accelerated aging.
L-Taurine helps reduce cravings, mobilize fat, and improve insulin production. Vanadyl sulfate is a compound that contains sulfur, vanadium, and oxygen. It can reduce hyperglycemia or high blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity in the liver and muscle tissue.
You can use bCardio to help improve your heart health as well. According to Harvard Medical School, the heart of an average person beats 2.5 billion times over their lifetime. Keeping your heart healthy can help prevent heart attacks, improve your energy level, and make exercising feel easy and fun. With bVital Healthy Inflammation Support, you can prevent inflammation and oxidative stress in many parts of your body, including your heart. It contains nutrients, herbs, and proteolytic enzymes to modulate your body's inflammatory response and prevent oxidative stress.
Inflammation happens when your immune system sends cells to fight an infection or help heal an injury. Along with heart health, bVital Healthy Inflammation Support supports your immune system by helping keep it from sending out too many cells. It can help prevent allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, and other issues without making you more vulnerable to viral or bacterial infections.
Athletes can benefit from bCardio Prepare with Ribose Powder. It's also ideal for people who work long hours and need as much energy as possible. It's a gluten-free, vegetarian, orange-flavored, powdered formula that helps cells produce energy, reduces fatigue, and improves muscle strength, stamina, and oxygen utilization. This supplement has d-ribose, a naturally occurring sugar that helps cells produce and recycle adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This compound provides energy when specialized organelles called mitochondria metabolize it. More ATP can help increase your energy level and performance.
bCardio Prepare with Ribose Powder also has coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), an antioxidant that your cells use for growth and maintenance. After people are 35 and older, CoQ10 levels decrease. This supplement can help you increase your body's CoQ10 levels and protect heart tissue. Other ingredients include malic acid, one of the components needed for glucose metabolism and ATP production, and Rhodiola rosea, an herb that can also increase levels of ATP.
We offer a variety of quality, advanced supplements to boost your health. You can try bVital Probiotic, a probiotic with live microorganisms to support gut health. Each capsule has 100 billion colony-forming units or CFUs and four different strains. If you're busy and you don't have time for lunch, you can enjoy bEssential Vegan Choco-Coconut. It's a low-carbohydrate meal replacement that's also great for adding protein to your favorite meals or drinks. It contains Fibersol-2, a soluble corn starch fiber to help maintain intestinal regularity.
At the biostation, you can get personalized care and an in-depth consultation from an experienced doctor. With our quality, pharmaceutical-grade supplements and other methods, we can help you look great, stay healthy, and prevent many of the common symptoms of aging.
