How do we optimize our mental and physical health? We live a healthy lifestyle. Eat a well-balanced diet of fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats, and 100% whole grains. Avoid processed foods, refined carbs, sugary foods, and trans fats. Drink enough water. Get a good night’s sleep. Manage stress. Engage in exercise, cardio, and strength training. Just as important as all these other natural steps, be sure to include supplementation of essential vitamins, minerals, and botanicals that may contribute to supporting your overall health. Supplementation provides certain phytonutrients that are difficult to obtain from food. Supplements can benefit and support numerous areas of health such as increased energy, promoting joint comfort and skin health, supporting sleep and stress, maintaining cardiovascular function, and more.
Let’s start with aging. What’s happening on the inside of our bodies influences how fast we age. Both age and poor lifestyle affect our cells’ ability to create energy and run efficiently. As we age, our cells naturally begin to slow down.
GlutaQ: A blend of antioxidants-supporting ingredients
GlutaQ was built to support mitochondrial energy where it counts: inside the cell. Mitochondria produce more than 90% of the energy needed by the body. By taking care of your mitochondria, you are influencing the health of your heart, brain, muscles, and cells. GlutaQ is a powerful blend of antioxidants with a focus on healthy aging and fitness, regardless of age. GlutaQ contains 250 mg of reduced glutathione,* 300 mg of high-potency quercetin (sourced from the Japanese pagoda tree), and 250 mg of beetroot extract. By taking care of your mitochondria, you are influencing your overall health on a cellular level.
The combination of these ingredients promotes cellular health, glutathione synthesis, and support of the immune system necessary for optimum mental and physical health. These antioxidants function inside the cell to help support healthy mitochondrial activity, which can impact our cells’ response to glucose and our cognitive and neurologic health. Glutathione, the master antioxidant, and the cell’s natural garbage man neutralize free radicals that contribute to aging. Quercetin, a source of flavonoids, functions to encourage mast cell activity which can help fuel and maintain a healthy immune system. Quercetin assists the use of zinc, or its transport across a lipid membrane, in the body for healthy aging as well as the support of a healthy immune system. Beetroot has been shown to support a healthy immune system and cardiovascular health. Beetroot powder promotes stamina, endurance, energy, and athletic recovery due to its ability to support the circulation of blood and oxygen in the body. This tripod of ingredients works synergistically to help coordinate the body’s immune system by encouraging youthful cellular health and function.

- Maintaining healthy Glutathione levels.
- Additional support for promoting cellular energy, cellular health, and a healthy cell cycle.

Magnesium: the fourth most abundant mineral in the body
Magnesium is underappreciated and critically important! Magnesium plays a role in many aspects of health and is required for normal energy release. Magnesium also supports muscle development and movement and the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles. Magnesium deficiency is probably the most common nutritional deficiency.
Isotonix® Magnesium provides the body with 100% of the recommended daily value of magnesium in a highly bioavailable formula which includes two different types of magnesium to increase its absorption by the body. Inadequate levels of magnesium have been linked to poorer concentration, memory and cognitive function, and muscle discomfort. Sleep quality is associated with higher levels of magnesium and when these levels are low, sleep quality may suffer. Isotonix® Magnesium helps maintain normal blood pressure and supports bone health and sleep quality while promoting head comfort and optimal muscle health.
Isotonix® Magnesium has a great-tasting formula that provides the body with 400 mg (split dose) of vitamins. It is highly bioavailable thanks to its unique isotonic delivery system and the optimal formula with two forms of magnesium, citrate, and glycinate.
