Do We Need PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE Nutritional Supplements?
According to science and environmental changes, YES.
According to NHANES 2001-2002, in “What We Eat in America”, 93% of US population does not meet Estimated Average Requirements for Vitamin E, 56% for Magnesium, 44% for Vitamin A, and 31% for Vitamin C, to name a few. While this study is already dated, it corresponds quite closely to the nutritional status of many. (EAR is a daily intake to meet the requirement of 50% of the healthy individuals). According to data from the US Department of Agriculture involving vegetable quality, over the entire 20th century, the average mineral content of such vegetables as cabbage, lettuce, spinach and tomatoes declined from 400mg to less than 50mg. There is a lot of junk science, and there are equally many junk supplements that are unregulated and possibly contaminated or unsafe.
EVIDENCE-BASED science. IMPORTANCE OF GASTRIC EMPTYING
Biological sensors in the gastrointestinal tract detect that the ingested solution is isotonic and at a correct pH. This causes the pyloric valve at the lower end of the stomach to remain open, allowing the concentrated solution to be squirted into the small intestine by stomach contractions. Absorption of the nutrients by the intestinal mucosa then starts to occur.
Everything you eat and drink, including nutritional supplements, must be made isotonic before passing into your small intestine where it can be absorbed."Isotonic" means having the same fluid pressure as your other bodily fluids like blood and tears. When you eat food, drink a beverage, or take a pill or capsule, your stomach must first secrete diluting juices, enzymes, hydrochloric acid, and at least one vitamin-binding protein to continue the process of digestion. Muscular contractions of your stomach then mix the contents until a reasonably uniform solution is achieved. This process can take anywhere from 40 minutes to four hours.In the time that it takes for most pills and capsules to disintegrate, and their contents to dissolve and transform to the proper isotonic state, much of their activity is lost. During digestion, the important micronutrients in pills and capsules can get trapped by fats, fibers, and tannins or inactivated by the highly acidic pH level of your stomach.But Isotonix products are scientifically formulated with the perfect balance of fructose, d-glucose, citric acid, potassium bicarbonate and other ingredients to ensure that they are isotonic the moment they enter your body. When properly mixed with water and taken on an empty stomach, the isotonic solution flows into your small intestine almost immediately.Isotonix products have been carefully formulated to clear your stomach at an optimal rate to maximize absorption. A pill does not fully deliver into your bloodstream the vitamins it holds within. Either the pill is dumped whole into your intestinal tract or the active ingredients pass through without being fully absorbed. Vitamins taken in Isotonix form do not have these shortcomings.Isotonix delivers nutrient dense solutions which move from the stomach into your intestine in a fast, controlled way. And they're buffered to resist nutrient degradation and to be gentle on your system.
