What are biofactors?

Biofactors are physiological (endogenous) substances which regulate the metabolism. The sufficient availability of biofactors is necessary in order to avoid or compensate for deficiency states. At higher concentrations, biofactors may possess pharmacological and therapeutic effects and therefore take on the character of medications.

Biofactors include vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids, amino acids and vitaminoids (vitamin-like substances).
