Seriously, isotonic calcium gets RESULTS

Isotonix Calcium PlusCalcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body with 99% of it stored in the bones and teeth. Beyond skeletal structure calcium impacts multiple systems including the cardiovascular, nervous system, immune response, hormone and enzyme function and healthy cholesterol levels.

44-87% of the U.S. populace are deficient in calcium. Using the steroid Prednisone leaches calcium from the bones, which greatly increases calcium requirements.

So the question is, what form of calcium is best? Frequently, people complain that they have tried supplementing with calcium or other nutrients and noticed no benefit. In the past, I had the same experience. What I found out was that it wasn’t that the compound didn’t work. The problem was that my body could not extract the benefits of the compound due to the form it was delivered in.

That is why isotonic absorption is so significant.

Many calcium supplements are made from calcium found in eggshell or oyster shell, which is difficult for the body to absorb. Other brands use calcium tablets that possess a binding agent called DCP, which does not break down in the body. Just because a brand lists a large amount of calcium on the label does not mean that your body will be able to utilize it.

Isotonix® Calcium Plus delivers results because it is isotonic.

Isotonix® Calcium Plus is a powdered form that, when mixed with the amount of water indicated, becomes isotonic. An isotonic solution is extremely easy for the body to absorb and will begin entering into the blood stream in less than five minutes. This highly efficient and active product will get to the receptor sites in the small intestine unlike many other brands of tablets which have been jokingly referred to as “bedpan bullets“.

Benefits that distinguish Isotonix® Calcium Plus are:

  • It’s isotonic – (is ready to be absorbed by the intestines)
  • It’s very affordable – ($19.50 for a 45 day supply)
  • It’s drinkable – (and tastes good)
  • It’s bioavailable – (delivers highly concentrated and active nutrition)
  • It’s synergistically blended – (contains vitamins D3, C, and B2, magnesium, boron, potassium, & manganese)

Results always speak for themselves. Here are a few comments on Isotonix® Calcium Plus:

I’ve tried various types of daily calcium products. This is far and away the easiest to use and it tastes good too. I’ve found that I really notice a difference in how I feel when I use the product and after just one month. I will buy it every month from now on.

I really like this product- it is a thousand times better than the calcium “horse pills” that you buy at the store. This powder is easy to take, and you can take just half a dose if you are drinking a lot of milk or use milk products. I would recommend it to any woman.

Vitamin D – you probably need more of the "sunshine vitamin"

The future’s so bright for this super nutrient, it really is going to need shades! Formerly, it seemed like we only heard warnings about too much sun exposure. So we heeded recommendations to use sunscreen to protect us from damage to our skin which could make us look older or give us skin cancer.

Now doctors are discovering that the majority of sun6adults and children are not getting enough vitamin D and it is contributing to poor health, so they are recommending supplementing with this vitamin for good reason. Lack of vitamin D has been linked to a wide variety of illness and disease, including:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Tuberculosis
  • Low back pain
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Birth defects
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • Periodontal disease

Vitamin D also encourages muscle development. Recent studies done at the University of Manchester have determined that young girls (12-14 years) who were supplemented with vitamin D demonstrated more muscular strength and explosive power.

When selecting a vitamin D supplement bear in mind that D3 is superior to D2 due to it’s bioavailability.  The best quality vitamin D supplement that I know of is Isotonix® Vitamin D with K2.  Isotonix® D includes a synergistic vitamin known as K2 which, in additional to bone health, promotes vascular integrity. Because this product is an isotonic formula, up to 95% of the nutrients are absorbed and enter into the blood stream just minutes after drinking it.

Among other things, Vitamin D3 significantly improves calcium absorption. Vitamin K2 supports the transfer of calcium into bone versus into arteries. Consequently, Vitamin D3 should ideally always be taken with Vitamin K2.

The Vitamin D Council recommends 5000 IU’s of Vitamin D3 daily. Isotonix Vitamin D3 with K2 contains 5000 IU’s of Vitamin D3 along with 45 mcg’s of K2 per dose.

Is Loving a Toothpaste Strange?

toothpaste1Okay, I’ll admit it’s pretty weird to get excited about toothpaste.  It is not a product I have ever had much of an opinion on at all… but that all changed when I tried a new CoQ10 toothpaste that left me teeth unusually clean.  Now I am excited over a toothpaste!

It started innocently enough.  I knew that CoQ10 is a coenzyme which activates enzymes.  CoQ10 is found in every cell in the body and is essential for heart health.  What I didn’t know was that CoQ10 has been studied and shown to provide antioxidant benefits to gum tissue.  Antioxidants are amazing at maintaining and restoring health, so using an antioxidant toothpaste seemed logical.

Antioxidants Highly Effective in Fighting Oral Diseases

man-with-dentistTwo common periodontal diseases were found to respond favorably to the potent antioxidants found in grape seed. Periodontitis is a serious condition that destroys the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth.  Thirty to fifty percent of Americans suffer from this disease making it the second most common in the world.

Gingivitas and fusobacterium are types of unhealthy bacteria which can grow in the mouth.  Gingivitis left unchecked can develop in to a very serious disease called Trench Mouth.  Fusobacterium is a pathogen that sometimes presents after contracting strep.  Fusobacterium can develop into a very dangerous condition called Lemierre’s disease.

Gingivitas and fusobacterium thrive in plaque, which is a complex bacteria-laden environment called biofilm.  Biofilm serves as a protective agent for the unhealthy bacteria allowing it to thrive and reproduce.  The biofilm accelerates the inflammatory response, which causes a massive release of free radicals on a cellular level.

A 2008 study conducted by Food Chemistry demonstrated that the powerful antioxidants in grape seed were very beneficial because of their anti-bacterial properties and suppression of the free radical cascade.

Isotonix OPC-3® is a synergistic blend of antioxidants (including grape seed extract) that has been clinically proven to positive improve red and white blood cells mobility and suppress free radicals for a full 72 hours after ingesting.
