Why Isotonix

Are you suffering from digestive challenges? Hate swallowing bills? Had bariatric or gastric by-pass surgery? Have Celiac disease? Or you just want the best value for your hard earned dollars when it comes to nutrition and supplementation. If so, you’ve landed at the right place! Please take the time to educate yourself about this remarkable deliver system.

What is Isotonix?

Isotonix products are formulated with the proper balance of fructose, d-glucose, citric acid, potassium bicarbonate and other key ingredients to assure that they are isotonic when properly prepared. This combination of ingredients is necessary to maintain the flavor, isotonic character, pH and delivery efficiency of these nutritional supplements. Normally, when you ingest a daily vitamin or nutritional supplement tablet, your body must work for up to four hours digesting and absorbing the vitamins and nutrients. During this lengthy breakdown process, a percentage of the nutritive value is lost. But because Isotonix products are powders, none of the fillers, binders, coatings and lubricants that are common to tablet manufacturing are necessary. There are no gelatin capsules or fillers. As a result, the amount of time and work necessary to absorb a supplement is greatly decreased.

Dementia Doubling! Now that’s Troubling!!

While wearing my digitial marketing hat today, I ran across this article about creating web based content geared to the growing population of people suffering from Dementia.

There are some staggering statistics in this article. “At the end of 2015, there were an estimated 46.8 million people worldwide living with dementia. The number of people living with dementia will almost double every 20 years, reaching 74.7 million in 2030, and 131.5 million in 2050. There are 3.3 billion internet users worldwide, and as the number of people with dementia continues to rise, so too will the proportion of internet users living with the condition.”

The me wearing my “wellness hat” was quite disturbed by this. My first reaction was that I need to help these people.  These numbers are off the charts and way too high. Aging should be beautiful and graceful, and yet too many people are suffering from this debilitating disease that comes in many forms.

Dementia is a term that has a broad spectrum attached to it.  A person may have dementia and it could be linked to something as simple as a Vitamin B 12 Deficiency.   In a Harvard Health Publication they discuss:

“ More than 50 conditions can cause or mimic the symptoms of dementia.

A small percentage of dementias are reversible. Symptoms subside when the underlying problem is treated.

Two common examples are dementia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency or an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).”

Some of the symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency in regard to both mental and neurological changes are as follows:  http://www.maggieholbik.com/vitaminb12.html

Mental Changes

. irritability

. apathy

. sleepiness

. personality changes

. depression (including postpartum depression)

. memory loss

. dementia, intellectual deterioration

. hallucinations

. violent behavior

. in children, developmental delay and/or autistic behavior

Neurological Signs & Symptoms

. abnormal sensations (pain, tingling and/or numbness of legs, arms, trunk, or other area)

. diminished sense of touch, pain, and/or temperature

. loss of position sense (awareness of body position)

. weakness (legs, arms, trunk or other area)

. clumsiness (stiff or awkward movements)

. tremor

. symptoms mimicking Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis

. spasticity of muscles

. incontinence (urine and/or stool)

. paralysis

. vision changes (decreased vision or loss of vision)

. damage to optic nerve (optic, neuritis, inflammation, or atrophy of the optic nerve)

Another big player in the prevention and treatment of Dementia are Omega 3 EFA’s.

From an article at Medscape:

Schaefer concluded that 3 or more fish servings per week or at least 1 fish oil capsule per day (greater than 180 mg DHA/day) to raise DHA levels and supplementing or consuming adequate amounts of vitamins B6, B12, and folate (to decrease homocystine levels) could decrease the incidence of dementia.
