What Makes Isotonix Multivitamin Unique?
Isotonix Multivitamin provides numerous essential vitamins and most minerals. This product should be taken daily in addition to your dietary regimen. Multivitamin will establish a sound micronutrient foundation, according to the USRDA (The United States Recommended Daily Allowance).
"If a drop of prevention is worth a gallon of longevity, then preventative medicine, such as vitamins and minerals, are worth their weight in gold," said Dr. Linus Pauling in 1976. Good advice then and as we look to the future, vitamins and minerals will play an ever-increasing vital role to the well being in every individual.
Related terms: vitamins, minerals, multi-vitamin, multivitamin

Frequently Asked Questions about Isotonix Multivitamin:
What are vitamins?
A vitamin may be broadly defined as a substance that is essential for the maintenance of normal metabolic function, but which is not produced in the body and therefore must be consumed from sources outside the body. They are necessary components in the process of converting food to energy, and in the growth and repair of body tissue. Reduction of vitamin levels over extended periods can result in vitamin deficiency. These shortages may lead to symptoms, which can include loss of appetite, loss of body weight, increased irritability, and sleeplessness or constant drowsiness. Deficiencies of this nature can easily be reversed by adequate vitamin intake.
What type of vitamin E is in the Multivitamin formula?
The vitamin E in the Multivitamin formula is the natural, high activity d, 1-alpha-tocopherol. It has been converted to the acetate form to aid water solubility.
Vitamin D3 has been added to the Calcium Plus and the Multivitamin formulas to facilitate the uptake of calcium. Vitamin D3 is initially activated further in the skin in the presence of sunlight and then it is activated further in the kidney and liver. Vitamin D3 is a hormone that can stimulate the production of calcium-binding proteins, which aid in transporting this essential mineral through cells. The 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 is then transported to critical sites in the body to facilitate calcium uptake. The intestine and bone cells are two of these critical sites. There are groups of people who are not out in the sun for significant lengths of time. Certain racial groups have significant problems in the higher latitudes, especially during the winter, in producing substantial amounts of vitamin D3 and subsequently taking up enough calcium. Even with intense phototherapy for those people requiring significant calcium nutriture, the blood levels of 1,25-OH-vitamin D3 are highly regulated. The daily doses of vitamin D3 are highly regulated. The daily doses of vitamin D3 thought to be toxic are greater than 1000 IU reports concerning inappropriate calcium deposition in soft tissues occur at 3000-4000 IU/day.
How many of us sit down at home to three complete and balanced meals a day?
Very few! Fast-food restaurants, food fads, weight-loss diets and an ever-increasing use of unfortified convenience foods have heavily influenced todays eating habits. Modern processing and preparation techniques often rob foods of vitamin content, as can growth, harvest and storage conditions. We often come up short. It is up to us to make up the difference with supplements.
Life cannot be sustained without all the essential vitamins.
How important are minerals?
As important as vitamins are, they are useless without minerals. Minerals provide a vital role in nutrition. Although there is rarely much discussion about the benefits they provide, minerals are considered the "unsung" heroes of nutrition. Virtually no nutritional benefit from the various vitamins would be possible without the assistance of one or more key minerals.
There are a number of vital roles that minerals play in the body. It is their non-organic components that initiate the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates and lipids. In addition to their assistance in the metabolic process, minerals aid the regulation of water and electrolyte balance. Minerals are also pivotal in providing a sound skeleton, and regulating the functions of our muscles and nerves. Minerals are essential for sustaining good health and life.
