Why Supplement?

There is a lot of debate as to whether supplementation is necessary. At GSS, we take a practical approach…

  • Our soils are not as rich as they once were 20 or 30 years ago…
  • With an increasing population, farmers can be forced to overcrop, which leads to fruits and vegetables with less nutrient density…
  • Technology has created efficient ways to process foods, which also leads to poorer quality nutrient content and enables a ‘Quantity over Quality’ concept…
  • 20 years ago, the recommended daily intake of fruits and vegetables was 3-5. Today, it has sky rocketed to 10-12 recomended servings. Even if you were to eat the 10-12 servings to get what is ‘recommended,’ it would be nearly impossible to eat the right amount of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) as well!

With that said, supplementation is very necessary in order for us to maximize our potential. Consming the proper supplements in the correct ratios include benefits such as, but are not limtied to- muscle growth, immunity, joint support, improved brain function etc.!

Why Isotonix?

Isotonic liquids are the most effecient way to get maximum absorption by the body. Isotonix solutions are just that- they eliminate the need for the body to breakdown tablet bindings and coatings and encapsulated supplements, which reduce absorption rates. Isotonix solutions begin the digestion process in 5 minutes or less, whereas tablets and capsules can take up to 25-30 minutes to begin after being ingested.

The graph below shows the rate of absorption of Istonix Anti-Oxidant OPC-3 and the reduction rate of free-radicals compared to a tablet OPC-3 supplement. Ingesting Isotonix OPC-3 as compared to an OPC-3 tablet shows that the rate of absorption and reduction rate of free-radicals is substantially higher when taking the Isotonic form.
