Daily Adaptogenic Elixir
Tonify: To increase the available energy of an organ, part, or system of the body. Biotonic™ is designed to augment the activity of Biocidin®.
Biocidin Botanicals is all about botanicals – and they usually talk about them from a Western perspective. But sometimes changing your lens brings additional benefits. That’s why Founder and Formulator Rachel Fresco, L. Ac., used inspiration from two Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formulas to create their adaptogenic elixir, Biotonic™.
Biotonic™ is based on two of the most commonly used TCM herbal formulas, “Tonify the Middle and Lift the Qi” (Bu-Zhong-Yi-Qi-Tang) and “Decoction of the Six Gentlemen” (Liu-Jun-Zi-Tang). They have been used by healers for centuries to address common complaints including digestive issues (like bloating and nausea), fatigue, poor assimilation, and weak immune response. Sound familiar? These complaints continue to be a daily stressor for many – almost every person who walks through the clinic door.
The addition of Artemisia strengthens the formula’s microbial balancing activity and promotes a healthy inflammatory response. Biotonic™ also contains Fo Ti root. According to the Chinese Herbal Medicine: Materia Medica, Fo Ti boosts kidney Qi, and supports liver function – making it useful for restoration after illness. By relying on ancient wisdom for modern challenges, Rachel Fresco created a synergy that provides a gentle yet powerful addition to their line. An adaptogenic companion product designed specifically to augment the activity of Biocidin®. Biotonic™ tonifies digestion, immune activity, and vitality – and it’s available to us every day.
Put it all together and you have a delicious daily elixir that can be enjoyed by itself or added to beverages. Biotonic™ tonifies digestion, immune activity, and vitality. Ancient wisdom for modern challenges.

The effort to restore harmony requires ongoing renewal – and that’s where our botanicals and nutrients shine. Offering needed provisions, they allow the body to establish balance. Plants unite with the body to revive and strengthen – cultivating microbial diversity, healthy digestion, nutrient absorption, and sustained well-being.
