For many of you who follow Dr. Fliedner’s blog, you have learned about the many benefits of BioTE pellet therapy. But did you know that BioTE also offers a complete line of specially formulated nutraceuticals to complement the benefits of pellet therapy?
We have all heard about the importance of taking our vitamins and dietary supplements, however, nutraceuticals take it to the next level. They are high-grade supplements that boost an individual’s immune system and deliver a level of needed nutrients that can be difficult to achieve through diet alone.
What are Nutraceuticals?
Generally speaking, nutraceutical is a term that is used to describe any product derived from food sources that contain health-giving additives and offers medicinal benefits beyond the basic nutritional value found in the food source alone.
The term “nutraceutical” is derived from two words: “nutrition,” which is a nourishing food component, and “pharmaceutics,” which is a medical drug. The term applies to products that are isolated from herbal products, dietary supplements (nutrients), specific diets, and processed foods such as cereals, soups, and beverages, that other than nutrition are also used as medicine.
The word “nutraceutical” was first coined in 1989 by Stephen De Felice, the founder and chairman of the Foundation for Innovation in Medicine, an American organization that encourages medical health research.
In his own words, Dr. De Felice describes “nutraceutical,”
“I coined the term “nutraceutical” while strolling at the Piazza Navona late at night in Rome in the early 80s. A nutraceutical is a food or part of a food such as a dietary supplement that has a medical or health benefit including the prevention and treatment of disease.” (from an interview with Dr. Stephen De Felice)
The philosophy behind nutraceuticals comes from the Greek physician HIPPOCRATES. Known as the father of Western medicine, HIPPOCRATES once said “let food be your medicine.” Adapting that adage, the focus of nutraceuticals is prevention. According to De Felice, “nutraceuticals are food or part of a food that provides medical or health benefits including the prevention and/or treatment of a disease.”
Health Benefits of Nutraceuticals
Over the past several years, many published reports of the effectiveness of nutraceuticals as an alternative for pharmaceuticals have attracted considerable interest.
Nutraceuticals have been shown to play crucial roles in the immune status and in limiting susceptibility to certain diseases by exhibiting disease-modifying indications as related to allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, eye conditions, Parkinson’s diseases, and obesity.
Health care providers are prescribing nutraceuticals to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, postpone the aging process, increase life expectancy, and support many of a body’s organs. Nutraceuticals have become a healthy source for the prevention of life-threatening diseases such as diabetes, renal and gastrointestinal disorders.

After years of research and experience in treating the whole person, Dr. Fliedner has chosen to partner with BioTE Nutraceuticals for three main reasons:
- BioTE Nutraceuticals are the result of more than 80 years of science and medical data.
- BioTE Nutraceuticals feature superior supplements that help maintain normal hormone balance. They are carefully formulated to support the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) that Dr. Fliedner offers his patients.

- BioTE Nutraceuticals are clinical-grade supplements with superior bioavailability, which ensures a complete and personalized approach to support your health goals.
The “Core Four” BioTE Nutraceuticals
Getting started in a new supplement regimen can often be overwhelming. Fortunately, Dr. Fliedner has streamlined the process and recommends the “Core Four” Nutraceuticals. We list these four supplements below and describe their health benefits.
BioTE DIM SGS+
DIM SGS+ is an ideal combination of diindolylmethane (DIM), sulforaphane (SGS), and pomegranate extract. This combination of clinical-grade ingredients helps stimulate a more efficient metabolism for estrogen – it can help regulate the ratio of healthy to less healthy estrogen.
DIM SGS+ is specially formulated to help support hormone optimization and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The main ingredient, DIM, is a compound found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and kale and helps maintain hormone balance. BioTE DIM SGS+ may also help promote breast, uterine, cervical, and prostate health.
Benefits: DIM SGS+ can help encourage normal estrogen metabolism, help control appetite, and promote detoxification.
BioTE METHYL FACTORS+
METHYL FACTORS+ provides five essential methylation nutrients — 5-MTHF (methyl folate), vitamin B6, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, and betaine. Methylation is a biochemical process that impacts your body’s ability to regulate cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems.
METHYL FACTORS+ also promotes homocysteine balance. Homocysteine is a common amino acid in your blood that influences your cardiovascular health. All ingredients offered in METHYL FACTORS+ come in their most bioavailable forms, meaning your body will be able to absorb and use what it needs more efficiently.
Benefits: METHYL FACTORS+ can help promote normal methylation, support a healthy heart, and encourage energy and focus.
BioTE ADK 5 and ADK 10
ADK delivers highly bioavailable forms of three essential vitamins, A, D3, and K2. The ingredients in ADK work together to promote absorption and use inside the body. The result is a potent supplement that supports a variety of functions that help promote bone, heart, and immune health.
This supplement is available in two targeted formulas to help address vitamin D deficiency. ADK 5 contains 5,000 IU (125 mcg) of vitamin D3 per capsule, and ADK 10 contains 10,000 IU (250 mcg) of vitamin D3 per capsule. Contact Dr. Fliedner or call our office to identify which is right for you based on your current vitamin levels and nutritional needs.
Benefits: ADK can help maintain vitamin D levels, promote strong, healthy bones, and support the immune system. They are strongly associated with reducing the risk of major diseases, such as breast cancer, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s.
BioTE MULTI-STRAIN PROBIOTIC 20B
MULTI-STRAIN PROBIOTIC 20B can help restore digestive balance. It contains 20 billion active cultures per capsule to support good gut health and a strong immune system. Every strain used in the formula is well-researched and identity-verified for safety and assurance.
MULTI-STRAIN PROBIOTIC 20B helps replenish and support healthy bacteria in your gut. The gut plays a vital role in the recycling and metabolizing of hormones, including thyroid hormones and estrogen. Home to billions of beneficial organisms, your gut also helps support your immune system and produces neurotransmitters such as GABA, serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, acetylcholine, and melatonin. Our blister packaging protects each capsule from natural factors proven to compromise probiotics’ stability, such as heat, moisture, and oxygen.
Benefits: MULTI-STRAIN PROBIOTIC 20B can help deliver 20 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) to your gut, support normal gut and digestive health, and promote a strong immune system.
