What makes Isotonix Resveratrol special?

I’ve posted several articles and studies about the remarkable effects of resveratrol, the compound in red wine (that is believed to be the answer to the “french paradox“), along with a link to Market America’s Isotonix® Resveratrol product.

With the increased awareness of the benefits of resveratrol, there are dozens of products popping up to cash in on the news including resveratrol beer!

So what makes Isotonix® Resveratrol different than all the others?  Quite a bit actually.

Isotonic-capable

Isotonix® Resveratrol is the only resveratrol product that is isotonic-capable, which means that when it is dissolved in water it becomes isotonic.  Isotonic is a chemical state that means “same pressure” or “same concentration”.  The levels of dissolved solids in an isotonic solution match the fluids in the human body and are thus readily absorbed in the small intestine while retaining almost all of it’s nutritive value.

Resveravine®

Isotonix® Resveratrol contains Resveravine®, a patented extract from Bio Serae Laboratories, that contains both trans-resveratrol and e-viniferin.  This synergistic combination has been shown in clinical studies to be more effective that regular resveratrol.

The following chart shows the effectiveness of various antioxidants, including resveratrol and Resveravine®, at inducing apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells.  Resveravine® is the red bar.

In another study, Resveravine® was found to be more effective at protecting LDL from free-radical oxidation damage than resveratrol and other antioxidants.

BioVin® Advanced

Isotonix® Resveratrol also contains BioVin Advanced®, a combination of resveratrol from French red wine, other wine polyphenols, and proanthocyanidins (OPCs).  If you’ve read the other posts on this forum about OPCs, you know what a powerful combination this is.

VitaBlue™

The final active ingredient of Isotonix® Resveratrol is VitaBlue™, a patented blueberry extract made from North American wild blueberries.  Blueberries have long been touted as a potent antioxidant, but also contain a compound called pterostilben, a relative to resveratrol that has been shown to have anti-cancer, cholesterol reduction, and cognitive improvement effects.  VitaBlue™ also provides anthocyanins (12.5%), polyphenolics (40%), and has an extremely high total ORAC value of 6500 units per gram.

The combination of Resveravine®, BioVin® Advanced, VitaBlue™, and isotonic capability make Isotonix® Resveratrol an extremely potent and highly bioavailable form of resveratrol that is unique in the industry.
