Isotonic solution: An isotonic solution means that it has the same salt concentration as the normal cells of the body and the blood. Also an isotonic beverage may be drunk to replace the fluid and minerals which the body uses during physical activity.
The term isotonic may also refer to;
Isotonic: (exercise physiology) for the term associated with muscle contraction
Isotonic solutions: A solution that have equal osmotic pressure, such as the isotonic environment in cell biology.
Isotonic sports drinks: To assist athletes re-hydrate while balancing electrolytes. An Isotonic sports drink have the same concentration as the body fluids.
The Science of Isotonic Supplements
One reason that makes Isotonic different from other brands is our isotonic capable nutritional supplements, including OPC-3. OPC-3 is a powerful blend of antioxidants, promotes cardiovascular health and helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
Isotonic capable nutritional supplements are simply the most effective means of delivering the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients the body needs daily. Unlike traditional tablets that must first dissolve in the stomach before absorption can begin, isotonic supplements do not require digestion. Isotonic nutrients pass quickly through the stomach and are absorbed efficiently via the small intestine. So instead of waiting some 40 minutes for digestion and dilution from stomach acid juices to occur, isotonic-capable supplements are absorbed very rapidly. With isotonic-capable supplements, you can decide which combination of Isotonix products, targeting various areas of your body, will best promote your optimal health.
What Makes Isotonix OPC-3 Unique?
Isotonix OPC-3® is a food supplement that is made from a combination of bilberry, grape seed, red grape, pine bark extracts and citrus extract, all found to be potent antioxidants. OPCs (Oligomeric proanthocyanidins) are one of the most powerful complex organic plant compounds (bioflavonoids) that provide exceptional nutritional and health benefits to the human body. OPCs work directly to help strengthen all the blood vessels and improve the delivery of oxygen to the cells. Isotonix OPC-3 also contains Pycnogenol®, a natural plant extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree and a natural scavenger of free radicals. Isotonix OPC-3 contains the only isotonic form of Pycnogenol in the world.*
Isotonic OPC-3 provides a host of benefits to the entire body. Isotonix OPC-3 combats free radicals and demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity. It also supports cardiovascular health by helping maintain healthy circulation and cholesterol levels and supporting healthy blood vessel dilation and nitric oxide levels. Isotonix OPC-3 supports joint health by helping to maintain joint flexibility and helps maintain vision and skin health. In addition, Isotonix OPC-3 supports healthy blood glucose levels, healthy platelet activity and sperm quality.*
Isotonix OPC-3 is delivered in isotonic form. Isotonic, which means ―same pressure,‖ is the body’s common osmotic pressure which 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 which means that the body has less work to do to obtain maximum absorption. The isotonic state 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.
