The holidays are here and it’s the perfect time to give thanks for what’s most important in our lives. As we age, certain things take on more meaning and importance. Often, what becomes most important are the very things that money can’t buy – the love of family and friends and the time we spend together with the ones we love becomes priceless. American activist, editor and writer, Frances Lear, may have said it best when she said “I believe the second half of one’s life is meant to be better than the first half. The first half is finding out how you do it. And the second half is enjoying it.” With this in mind, Market America | SHOP.COM is here to talk about aging well and two ways to appreciate your second act even more!
Referred to as the “gray tsunami,” the U.S. Census reports that baby boomers (born from 1946 to 1964) have changed the face of our country for more than 70 years and are continuing to do so as they become seniors. An estimated 73 million baby boomers account for the second-largest age group, only to be outnumbered by the millennials (born from 1982 to 2000). By 2030, all boomers will be at least age 65.
No matter what your age, it’s important to take care of yourself by eating the right foods, exercising regularly and visiting your personal healthcare physician for an annual checkup. Even the healthiest of adults, however, are affected by the physical and mental effects of aging because of the inherent nature of the process. So, the next time you go in for your annual checkup, consider talking with your doctor about nutrients and what you should be eating to get the right amount of nutrients for your age. Why? Consider this. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has shared research demonstrating that because older adults’ abilities to absorb and use many nutrients become less efficient, the nutrient requirements can actually increase. This may mean that while you are focused on maintaining an alert mind and an active body, the level of nutrients it can take to get you there may be more than you realize!
That’s where two supplements may help you as you age – Prime Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix® and Isotonix Essentials® Anti-Aging. Both can help with the physical and mental effects of aging and both are in an isotonic delivery system. More on what an isotonic delivery system is in a moment.
1. Prime Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix®

Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of the body’s tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state. Both Prime Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix and Isotonix Essentials Anti-Aging are isotonic solutions, meaning that the body has less work to do in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.*
