Isotonix Delivery System
Isotonix - the World's Most Advanced Nutraceuticals
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 an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do in obtaining maximum absorption. 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.
Study researchers caution individuals as to the concerns with copper consumption and a correlation to improper elimination of proteins that may form plaques in the brain linked to age related mental and cognitive decline. A trial spanning 6 years followed 3,700 participants with a mean age above 65 years reporting on their dietary intake and cognitive health. The study showed, those consuming a diet high in copper and trans fats had higher rates of mental and cognitive health decline. Those in the study with the greatest concern were those consuming a total of 1.6 milligrams of copper per day through additional supplementation. The U.S. daily recommended intake for copper is .9 milligrams and can be achieved reasonably through dietary intake.*

I love this multivitamin!
I have been taking Fifty Plus for three months now and along with the energy boost, clearer skin; my hair has grown thicker and healthier and filled in areas that were once very thin. I am very happy about that!
My favorite line of vitamins
I love these vitamins, the ease of use, and the fact that they are easily absorbed into the body. I recommend these to many of my patients who have malabsorption issues.
- Verified Buyer

Dissolves instantly in water
Like all vitamins, the taste is unique - but it instantly dissolves in water and the benefits outweigh something like liquid fizzy gummy bears.
