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 body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to 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.
Isotonix Delivery System
Isotonix products are isotonic because they match the fluids in the body, which have an almost constant concentration of dissolved particles like salts, sugars and minerals. At this concentration, nutrients and molecules essential for cell metabolism are efficiently transported through cell membranes. Isotonix products are formulated with the proper balance of fructose, glucose, citric acid, potassium bicarbonate and other key ingredients to assure that they are isotonic when properly prepared.
Isotonix products deliver nutrients at the right rate and concentration for complete absorption of the nutrient-dense solution. Isotonix is one of the most scientifically advanced nutrient delivery systems on the market.
The açai berry has been harvested from the depths of the rainforests of Brazil by the people who have been using it for thousands of years. Açai berries contain thiamin (B1), niacin ( B3), riboflavin (B2), vitamin E, vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, fibre proteins and fatty acids such as Omega 6 and Omega 9.
Açai berries contain some of the highest levels of antioxidants on the market, with studies showing up to 33 times the antioxidant properties as red wine grapes. The dense pigmentation of açaí has led to several experimental studies of its anthocyanins, a group of polyphenols that give the deep colour to fruits and vegetables and are high in antioxidant value. Açai berries have two essential fatty acids known as omega 6 (linoleic acid) and omega 9 (oleic acid).
L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The body cannot produce L-phenylalanine so it must obtain it from diet or supplements. The main dietary sources of L-phenylalanine are high protein foods such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. A significant dietary source may be through consumption of sugar-free products containing the artificial sweetener aspartame (NutraSweet), which is formed by a combination of phenylalanine with another amino acid – aspartic acid. Amino acids come in two forms, designated as L- and D- forms. The L- form is the naturally occurring form in foods, whereas the D- form is the synthetic variety.
L-phenylalanine acts as an amino acid precursor boosting noradrenalin production, which in turn increases mental alertness. L-phenylalanine helps to provide steady energy throughout the day.
L-phenylalanine is an electrically-neutral amino acid, one of the 20 common amino acids used to biochemically form proteins and enzymes, coded by our DNA. L-phenylalanine is necessary for living organisms, including the human body. L-phenylalanine can be converted into L-tyrosine, another of the 20 protein-forming amino acids. L-tyrosine is converted into L-DOPA, which is further converted into dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (latter three are known as the catecholamines).
The pomegranate is native to the regions from Iran to the Himalayas in northern India. It was cultivated and naturalized over the Mediterranean region since ancient times. It is widely cultivated throughout India and the drier parts of Southeast Asia, Malaya, the East Indies and tropical Africa.
Pomegranates are high in vitamin C and polyphenols. The most abundant polyphenols in pomegranate are hydrolysable tannins, particularly punicalagins, which research has shown to be the antioxidant responsible for the free-radical scavenging ability of pomegranate juice.
Guarana extract is derived from the seeds of the South American guarana shrub ( Paullinia cupana) , most of which originates in Brazil. Traditional uses of guarana by natives of the Amazon Rainforest include mixing crushed seeds in foods and beverages to promote alertness, mental energy and focus. As a dietary supplement, guarana is an effective energy booster, as it contains about twice the caffeine found in coffee beans (about three to four percent caffeine in guarana seeds compared to one to two percent for coffee beans). Guarana may enhance mental performance. The seeds of guarana are known to be rich in xanthines (caffeine) and have been widely used as a tonic in many South American countries, particularly Brazil. In studies, which have determined the total xanthine content of guarana powder, caffeine content typically averages 30 to 50 percent (depending on the extract).
L-Taurine is a building block for all the other amino acids. It aids in the transport of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells, thus helping to generate nerve impulses. It is a non-protein amino acid and is found in high amounts in the brain, retina, myocardium, skeletal and smooth muscle, platelets and neutrophils. It is plentiful in the fluids of muscle, lungs and nerve tissue. Dietary taurine mainly comes from animal food sources. Taurine is also present, in lower levels, in plant food sources like seaweed. It is classified as an essential amino acid. It promotes energy and supports cognitive health.
The mangosteen is an evergreen tree about 10 to 25 meters tall, grown in tropical climates such as Asia, South America and Polynesia. Mangosteen fruit is often called the “Queen of Fruits” due to its pleasant flavour. The mangosteen fruit contains a compound called xanthones, which is thought to have antioxidant properties. The plant is also a rich source of other bioactive molecules including flavonoids, benzophenones, lactones and phenolic acids. A variety of xanthones can be isolated from the hull, rind, heartwood and flesh of mangosteen plants and fruit.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid found naturally in our bodies. Tyrosine is metabolised into neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. Neurotransmitters are important because they carry messages from one nerve cell to another, thereby playing a vital role in our muscular and cognitive function.
Glycine is an important amino acid that supports the body’s synthesis of non-essential amino acids. Glycine is one of the few amino acids that can spare glucose for energy by improving glycogen storage. Glycine is useful in the synthesis of DNA and is readily converted into creatine. The body requires glycine for the maintenance of the central nervous system.
Yerba Maté Extract
Yerba maté is an evergreen with white flowers and red fruit, found naturally only in South America. Its medicinal parts are the dried or roasted leaves, which have proven to be a rich source of caffeine. Yerba maté contains xanthines, which are alkaloids in the same family as caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, well-known stimulants also found in coffee and chocolate. Yerba Maté also contains potassium, magnesium and manganese.
Like coffee, Yerba Maté stimulates the central nervous system. It is largely used to fight occasional fatigue. Yerba Maté has been shown to support energy needs. Yerba Maté creates a powerful answer to occasional mental and physical fatigue. Yerba maté is used worldwide as a rejuvenator and body energiser.
Green tea extract has been used medicinally for centuries in India and China. A number of beneficial health effects are related to regular consumption of green tea and dried/powdered extracts of green tea that are available in some dietary supplements. The active components in green tea are a family of polyphenols (catechins) and flavonols, which possess potent antioxidant activity. Several catechins can be found in green tea; epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG makes up around 10 to 50 percent of the total catechin content and appears to be the most powerful of all the catechins, with antioxidant activity about 25 to 100 times more powerful than vitamins C and E.
Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant, has been proven to be important for the growth and repair of body tissues, support of cardiovascular health, reduced oxidative stress, and good cognitive health and performance.
B vitamins are water soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism, supporting the functions of the nervous system, aiding in carbohydrate metabolism for energy, and promoting cognitive health and function.
The richest sources of dietary copper are derived from organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereal, whole grain products and cocoa products. Copper may have some antioxidant properties and acts as a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. It is an essential trace mineral.
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafood, including oysters. Zinc is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in 300 different enzymatic reactions. Thus, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones (30 percent) and muscles (60 percent), but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues. Zinc is involved in such a great number of enzymatic processes it has been found to positively affect a large range of physiological functions such as energy production and cognitive function.
