Calcium is essential for building and maintaining strong bones. For optimal bone health, Isotonix™ Calcium Plus delivers three-quarters of the recommended daily value of calcium and vitamin C in an efficient solution that is readily absorbed by the body. In most cases, calcium tablets are difficult for the body to absorb. One cause may be that the calcium supplement is not blended with Vitamin D and magnesium; these are necessary to aid the body in the absorption and use of calcium.
Even if the calcium supplement tablet is correctly blended, it may be difficult for the body to utilize or break down the calcium. One explanation may be that many calcium brands use calcium from eggshell or oyster shell. These may not be well absorbed by the body. Another reason calcium may not be absorbed from a tablet is because of a binding agent known as DCP, which is a binding agent is used to hold the tablet together. DCP does not break down in the body. Additionally, manufacturers are not required to disclose the use of DCP. In addition to binders, some calcium supplements may have additives such as chlorine, shellac and other potentially hazardous chemicals. Even assuming no binders are used in the calcium tablet, the body must still break down a hard-pressed tablet into a usable form. If the tablet cannot be broken down sufficiently in the stomach, then the calcium will not be absorbed. If you cannot break down the calcium, you can end up with problems such as unabsorbed particles floating around inside the body. This may lead to kidney stones and painful joints, not to mention you are not getting enough calcium, so your bones are being robbed of calcium to support bodily functions.
Isotonix Calcium Plus provides the body with an advanced, cost-effective and generous 750 mg dose of calcium through an optimized blend of calcium, vitamin D3, magnesium, vitamin C and boron. Vitamin D3 acts to stimulate the production of calcium binding and transport proteins that help move calcium across cell membranes and store the mineral inside the cells.
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 transported in isotonic fluids.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in a solution similar in constitution to the body's own naturally produced isotonic fluids. This similarity of pH and osmotic pressure means that the body has less work to do in order to convert the solution into a state ready for maximum absorption — greatly decreasing the amount of time and work necessary to absorb a supplement. The isotonic state of the suspension 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.
