Exciting news on OPC-3!

Exciting news on OPC-3!

A new study, e-published in Phytotherapy Research, evaluates how quickly Isotonix OPC-3® is absorbed vs. the same formulation in tablet form (not commercially available).

A group of European researchers examined, over a four hour period, the ability of Isotonix OPC-3 to act as an antioxidant by measuring oxygen free radicals in the blood of human subjects.

Isotonix OPC-3 reduced plasma oxygen free radicals (working as an effective antioxidant) within 10 minutes. The OPC-3® tablet took about 1 hour to produce a similar effect. Furthermore, the investigators noted that Isotonix OPC-3 had a stronger antioxidant effect throughout the entire 4 hour period vs. OPC-3 in tablet form.*

The authors concluded: “the findings demonstrate that the flavonoid mixture provided in isotonic OPC-3 is significantly more bioavailable in humans, in terms of antioxidant activity than an equivalent mixture in tablet form. “ Furthermore, the isotonic OPC-3 formulation resulted in a stronger antioxidative effect than an equivalent mixture in tablet form.*

Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics for Children

Why do children need these supplements?

Many children are eating in excess, and much of what they eat is processed foods.  This has been shown to cause a wide array of digestive challenges.  Eating processed foods (cookies, chips, fast food, diet sodas, milk products if lactose intolerant, canned or packaged foods, etc.) can lead to incomplete digestion, which can then lead to issues like stomach discomfort, occasional constipation, bloating and gas.

In addition, antibiotics that are taken from prescriptions can greatly increase the need for Probiotics in the digestive system. By the way, many over-the-counter probiotic products do not have enough enzymes or Probiotics to help.  Many products have added sugar and fillers(especially the yogurts).

Might-A-Mins® Spectrum Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes

Children in need of neurological, digestive, or metabolic support often need extra digestive support. Might-A-Mins® Spectrum Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes promotes stomach comfort and bowel regularity in children by enhancing enzymatic breakdown of food. The enzymes in this product work to cleave proteins during digestion, making them smaller and easier to digest. Not only does this promote normal digestion and absorption of nutrients, it also promotes bowel regularity.*

Might-A-Mins® Spectrum Isotonix® Probiotics

Many children today need added support in balancing microbes and bacteria in their gastrointestinal tracts in order to promote a healthy gastrointestinal tract and immune response. Might-a-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Probiotics supports a healthy gastrointestinal tract by providing beneficial bacteria to promote healthy digestion and supports a normal immune response. Another benefit of Might-a-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Probiotics is that it is delivered in an isotonic solution. Isotonic solutions bear the same chemical resemblance to blood and tears, allowing for superior delivery and complete absorption.*
