Innovation and dietary supplements are rare.

Prime Joint Support Formula by Isotonix has been formulated to combat the effects of age related degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and its consequential inflammation. The Prime Joint Support Formula is an innovative dietary supplement in that it is taken as an isotonic drink consisting of clinically significant ingredients.  This means in essence, that you will be healthier and happier as a result of using Isotonix products.

 

Why isotonic supplements?  Isotonic drinks maximise their benefits by promoting absorption into the body.  We all seem to want instant solutions to our problems these days and athletes are no different.  Marathon runners and people exercising for extended periods, are lose fluids and minerals throughout the duration of their training.  Replacing water alone is not enough as essential salts and vitamins, soluble in water, are lost through perspiration.  If not replaced, the body’s natural response is to give the sensation that rest is required making you feel low and tired.  Isotonic drinks can reverse these feelings almost instantly, by providing water and the crucial minerals that the body is craving.  A sportsperson’s livelihood depends on maintaining excellent performance and so relies on isotonic drinks to keep nutrients and mineral levels topped up.

Now compare the isotonic method of getting these essential elements into our systems to the more ubiquitous pill.  The tablet is swallowed and then must be broken down in the stomach in order for its ingredients to be dissolved into the blood.  The tablet will contain fillers that are of no use to our bodies and the concentration of the useful constituents actually absorbed into the blood will be low. 

The immediacy of isotonic drinks is owed to the way the body takes on available nutrients.  Osmosis.  If you consider for a moment how oxygen is dissolved into our blood.  Inhaling fills our lungs with air, that filters through the membranes of the lungs, and eventually reaches the blood passing on the other side of those membranes.  The heart of course then distributes the blood and oxygen throughout the body and consequently delivers oxygen where needed.  Similarly, isotonic drinks work by making available nutrients that have become sparse, ready for consumption at the point of need.

As we grow older, we know that we will face certain challenges that affect the quality of our lives.  Arthritis and inflammation are common conditions that can be at least mitigated, by supplementing our body’s natural production with nutrients like glucosamine and pycnogenol.  Glucosamine is believed to be a key component in the body’s natural production of synovial fluid; the stuff that lubricates our joints.  When taken regularly, glucosamine has been shown to improve quality of life, increased mobility and reduce the need for pain killers*.  Pycnogenol, a natural extract of a maritime pine tree, has been shown to reduce inflammation in test groups**. 

The Prime Joint Support Formula by Isotonix, stands to improve quality of life when taken regularly because it contains glucosamine and pycnogenol.  These particular ingredients have to shown to have positive effects and help to reduce pain and inflammation typically experienced with degenerative age related conditions.  Less aches and pains equates to greater focus elsewhere and the ability to concentrate on life’s pleasures.
