Q: What do minerals actually do for your body?
A: Virtually no nutritional benefit from various vitamins would be possible without the assistance of minerals. There are a number of vital roles that minerals play in the body. It is their non-organic components that initiate the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids. In addition to their assistance in the metabolic process, minerals aid the regulation of water and electrolyte balance. Minerals are also pivotal in providing a sound skeleton and regulating the functions of our muscles and nerves. Minerals are absolutely essential for sustaining good health and life.
Q: How many Isotonix products can I take at once?
A: You can mix up to 8 different Isotonix products at once, but this requires you to adjust the timing in order to allow your body to use the products in the most efficient and beneficial way! Drinking it over the course of 20-30 minutes is better than guzzling it at once. Think 8 ounces of solution every 10 minutes or so. If you find yourself in a time crunch, try taking 4 in the morning and 4 right before bed on an empty stomach!
Q: What are free radicals and how could they be harmful to my health?
A: “Free radical” is the name for any uncharged molecule with an unpaired valence electron. Since electrons want to be in pairs, these free radicals scavenge the body to seek another unpaired electron to pair with. This process is called oxidative stress, and it can harm proteins, cells, and even DNA over time.
Thankfully, we can do something about them! Antioxidants have been shown to keep free radicals in check. This is because they are a stable enough molecule to donate an electron that helps stabilize the free radical, reducing its effect on cells in the body.
Q: Are there any Isotonix products that shouldn’t be taken together?
A: Thankfully, our Isotonix products can be taken with one another in a number of different combinations! There aren’t necessarily any products that cannot be taken together as long as they are taken on an empty stomach. The most common problem when combining the products is simply taste.
There are, however, a few products that will work best for you when taken with a meal rather than before one. To find out if your supplement should be taken with food, just check the label or the instructions for use!
Q: Why is gastric emptying time stressed when talking about Isotonix?
A: Firstly, gastric emptying is simply the body’s natural process of emptying the stomach. This normally happens a few hours after eating.
So, back to the question. Nutrients that are already isotonic do not need to be broken down into an isotonic state. Therefore, gastric emptying occurs more rapidly. Biological sensors in the gastrointestinal tract detect that the ingested solution is isotonic and at a correct pH. This causes the pyloric valve at the lower end of the stomach to remain open, allowing the concentrated solution to be squirted into the small intestine by stomach contractions. Absorption of the nutrients by the intestinal mucosa then starts to occur.
Q: How is Isotonix Essentials Anti-Aging different from similar products on the market?
A: Unlike many other age-management supplements, Anti-Aging offers activated B vitamins, specialized SunActive Fe™ iron that is easy on the stomach and a sufficient amount of vitamin D to support bone, heart, and endocrine function. Also, Isotonix Essentials™ Anti-Aging complements other products you may be taking (e.g. protein, amino acids, botanicals).
Additionally, other age management products tend to focus on one specific ingredient to carry out their anti-aging claim. With Isotonix Essentials™ Anti-Aging, multiple ingredients used add to the anti-aging benefits of the customer (28, to be exact).
Q: Can you mix Isotonix Essentials™ with other Isotonix products?
A: Yes! All of our Isotonix products mix well together. Like with all Isotonix products, you still should be thoughtful about how the ingredients combine to meet your total daily nutrient values. All of the Isotonix Essentials™ products, Daily Essentials included, are formulated to pair with additional OPC-3. Just remember that those who need optimal support can at least two caps of OPC-3.
Q: What are BCAA’s and what do they do?
A: BCAA’s are the building blocks of protein and are known to promote healthy muscle growth and retention. They allow for more intense workouts, shorter recovery times, and help your body stop from breaking down muscle tissue overnight!
Q: What is astaxanthin and what does it do?
A: Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to salmon, crab, krill, and lobster. It is known for its highly powerful antioxidant effects and has been shown to be a superior free radical quencher. Astaxanthin’s unique structure includes long chains, which allow it to cover the cell membrane and provide antioxidant protection in all layers, whereas other antioxidants are more limited.
