Isotonix Digestive Enzymes Plus, an isotonic-capable health supplement, is a blend of amylase, protease, cellulase, lactase, maltase, invertase and lipase enzymes. Enzymes are important for the body’s proper absorption and utilization of food. Over time, the body’s ability to make certain enzymes decreases as part of the natural aging process. Enzymes are responsible for every activity of life including the digestion of proteins (proteases), the digestion of carbohydrate (amylases), and the digestion of fats (lipases). Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance to 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 health supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to obtain nutrient absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be absorbed into the bloodstream.
