You Need An Active Form of Vitamin D

If you have poor bone density, your health care provider has probably suggested supplementing with calcium and vitamin D.  The reason is that calcium is only 10-15% absorbed unless it has the benefitrunning-men2 of vitamin D to facilitate it.

The typical form of vitamin D used for most supplements is D2.  Vitamin D2 is classified as inactive.  An inactive form of a vitamin must be metabolized before it can be accessed, which requires considerable metabolic energy.  A metabolically active vitamin can be rapidly utilized by the body and requires very little energy expenditure.

Vitamin D3 is an active form of this essential nutrient.

Isotonix® Vitamin D with K2 is unique in providing vitamin D3 in an isotonic state, which allows it to be 95% absorbed.  It also incorporates isotonic vitamin K2.

K2 is, once again, metabolically active.  Most supplements use the inactive form known as K1.  K1 is not advised for people using statin drugs due to it’s blood-thinning characteristics.  On the other hand, K2 has no such behavior.  In fact, K2 mediates a condition that can occur during calcium supplementation known as the “calcium paradox”.

The calcium paradox occurs when calcium is stored in the arteries instead of bones.  This can create dangerous calcification and compromised cardiovascular health.  K2 acts like an internal guide directing calcium to the bones and away from arteries and veins.

Combining D3 and K2 into in isotonic form is synergistically brilliant!  I know of no better way of absorbing of these two very important vitamins.

OPC-3 outperforms statin drugs in reducing C-Reactive Proteins

A clinical study of Isotonix OPC-3® showed a 52.1% reduction in C-Reactive proteins in blood plasma compared to a 13-14% reduction when using statin drugs.

C-reactive protein (CRP) is currently the only predictive marker which can forecast the likelihood of a heart attack.  Elevated CRP can also be triggered by infection, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and other sources of inflammation.

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.

Resveratrol helpful in treating head and neck cancers

hand-on-neckResearches at the University of Colorado Cancer Center have found that resveratrol increases the effectiveness of radiation therapy on cancer cells in the lab.  It works by tricking the cancer cells into thinking that their DNA has been damaged, like radiation does, but does not harm normal cells.
