HEART &
CARDIOVASCULAR
Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that plays a vital role in health maintenance. It promotes a healthy cardiovascular system and periodontal health, helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels,
cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations and vitamin E levels in cell membranes, energizing the immune system and helping to maintain proper weight.*  A person’s heart beats, on
average, one hundred thousand times each day, which adds up to about thirty-six million times per year. CoQ10 is the vital nutrient that promotes the body’s normal ability to create energy
at the cellular level, which powers the heart and the body’s energy production cycle. CoQ10 acts as a powerful antioxidant when combined with vitamin E. Within a cell it serves as a carrier
of electrons in the electron transport chain, neutralizes free radicals and helps protect the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane.*  As individuals age, the ability to synthesize coenzyme
Q10 begins to decline. Sometimes this is due to poor eating habits or stress, but the main challenge for most people is the ability to choose the right foods containing CoQ10 as well as the
other nutrients needed to manufacture it in the body. It is a combination of both that provides the body with the best possible amount of CoQ10 for optimal health.*Absorption and efficacy
of nutritional supplements are two important features to examine when selecting a nutritional supplement and Isotonix Coenzyme Q10 contains both. This supplement is in the form of an
isotonic fluid, which helps the nutrients to be absorbed into your system quicker. Since the antioxidants are in an isotonic solution, it minimizes the chance that important nutrients will be
trapped by fats, fibers and tannins, or inactivated by a highly acidic pH level.  Poor cellular and cardiovascular health is becoming a worldwide epidemic. An unhealthy diet of processed,
high-calorie, high-fat foods, pollution, smoking and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to poor cell and heart health. Scientists revealed The French Paradox, which states that even though
the French drink, smoke and eat high-fat foods they have some of the lowest incidences of poor cardiovascular and cellular health. Scientists attribute this to the large amounts of red wine
that the French consume or, more importantly, an extract found in red wine: resveratrol. Resveratrol is an ingredient with incredible clinical research, revealing that it supports
cardiovascular and normal cell health. Because wine is so highly processed, the actual amount of resveratrol is quite low. One would have to drink at least three bottles of red wine a day to
experience the effects of resveratrol extract. Additionally, the content of resveratrol in red wine is inconsistent and varies by type of wine, region and processing techniques. Resveratrol
extract or, more specifically, Resveravine®, which is a more concentrated form of resveratrol, ensures that the body reaps all of the benefits of resveratrol, without the ill effects from three
bottles of wine.* Isotonix Resveratrol is an isotonic-capable supplement, made from three patented ingredients: Resveravinewith 20% resveratrol extract, BioVin® Advanced with 5%
resveratrol extract, and VitaBlue® (wild blueberry extract), designed to promote normal cell health. Isotonix Resveratrol works to maintain cell health, promote normal cell cycle activity,
promote apoptosis (programmed cell death) in unhealthy cells, support the normal activity of the SIRT-1 gene, and promote cardiovascular health, by promoting healthy platelet activity,
promoting vasorelaxation, and providing antioxidant protection of LDL particles. Resveravine is a combination of trans-resveratrol (20% purity) and viniferin extracted from vine stems, which
work synergistically to enhance the effectiveness of resveratrol extract. Trans-resveratrol is the predominate isomer found in red wine grapes and juice, and Resveravine is 100 to 300
times more concentrated in trans-resveratrol than other products from grape skin. According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, trans-resveratrol may have a higher
bioavailability than other isomers of resveratrol. Resveravine provides a higher level of free radical defense against oxidative stress, stronger promotion of normal cellular activity, and
higher antioxidant protection of LDL particles than pure resveratrol extract.*Studies of numerous species have shown that a reduction in calories has been linked to a longer lifespan. The
SIRT-1 gene activates a critical component of calorie restriction in mammals and promotes fat metabolization. There is evidence that resveratrol may be a calorie restriction mimetic, a
compound that mimics the effects of calorie restriction by targeting metabolic and stress response pathways affected by calorie restriction, but without restricting caloric intake, which may
be helpful in promoting a longer lifespan. By promoting healthy SIRT-1 activity, resveratrol promotes healthy mitochondrial function and supports energy expenditure, thereby promoting a
healthy weight.*Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration,
referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, 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 in an isotonic state.Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to obtain
maximum absorption of the nutrients. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and rapidly absorb into the bloodstream. With Isotonix
products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

INGREDIENTS:

Coenzyme Q10 (100 mg)
Coenzyme Q10 belongs to a family of substances called ubiquinones and is a water-insoluble, wax-like substance, that is part of the respiratory chain. It is synthesized in the cells, and is
involved in electron transport and energy production in mitochondria. In the cellular system, it functions to generate energy from oxygen, in the form of ATP, for bodily processes. CoQ10
also exhibits activity as a free radical scavenger and an antioxidant. The antioxidant activity in the mitochondria and cell membranes protects against peroxidation of lipid membranes.
Combining CoQ10 with vitamin E generates a synergistic antioxidant effect on lipoprotein and spares the vitamin E.

Coenzyme Q10 can be found in spinach, broccoli, nuts, meats and fish. In the body, it is found in the highest concentration in the cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas.
Supplementation of CoQ10 might be beneficial mostly to adults, because the levels of it in the body tend to peak around the age of twenty, and then decline with age. The affects of
supplementation with CoQ10 have shown to be especially helpful in maintaining heart health.

Vitamin E (200 IU)
Since vitamin E is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body, it helps protect cell membranes from the effects of free radicals. High intake of vitamin E have been found
support a healthy heart. Vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados, wheat germ, and safflower oil are all good food sources of vitamin E. Vitamin E is linked to a healthy heart,
enhancement of immune system function and support of healing.

Lipase (5 mg)
Lipase is a fat-digesting enzyme that supports the body's ability to break down dietary fats into an absorbable form. It is a water-soluble enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of ester bonds
in water-insoluble, lipid substrates. Lipase, such as human pancreatic lipase, support the conversion of triglyceride substrates found in oils from food to monoglycerides and free fatty acids.
Lipases are ubiquitous in living organisms, and most are built on an alpha/beta hydrolase fold and employ a chymotrypsin-like hydrolysis mechanism involving a serine nucleophile, an acid
residue and a histidine. Some lipases also work within the interior spaces of living cells to promote the normal degradtion of lipids.

Vitamin B2 (3 mg)
Vitamin B2, also known as Riboflavin, is a water soluble vitamin that's primary function is as a coenzyme to support metabolic processes in the body. It promotes healthy red cell formation,
nervous system function and also acts as an antioxidant. Another key function of the vitamin is in the production of energy, where it acts as part of the electron transport chain that
produces cellular energy. In the mitochondrial electron transport chain, vitamin B2 is an intermediate hydrogen acceptor of foodstuffs, and then passes the electrons onto the cytochrome
system, where the cellular energy is produced.

Requirements for vitamin B2 are associated with calorie intake, because with an increase food intake your body also needs an increase of vitamin B2 to carry out the metabolic processes
that will convert the food into usable energy. Nutritional inaccuracy is a common cause of vitamin B2 deficiency, which can occur in the elderly. Foods that are rich in the vitamin B2 are
organ meats, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, leafy, green vegetables, and whole grains.

Potassium (108 mg)
Potassium, in the body, is classified as an electrolyte and is involved in electrical and cellular functions in the body. It promotes normal water balance, levels of acidity, and maintenance of
blood pressure, transmission of nerve impulses, digestion, muscle contraction and heartbeat. Potassium can be found in foods, which help to maintain the body's internal balance of fluids
and chemicals. Some potassium-enriched foods are fruits, vegetables and legumes, which are all commonly recommended for optimal heart health.
