Isotonix Review - Does This Supplement Line Work? Are cost and inconvenience deal breakers?
97% of dieters just want a product that works. Yeah, we don’t understand that remaining 3%, either. Our in-depth looked at Isotonix side effects, ingredients, scientific research and customer service. We also dove deep into hundreds of user comments and experiences to find the facts. Then, we summarized and refined to give you the info you need.
What is Isotonix?
Firstly, Isotonix is a supplement manufacturer focusing on products in powdered form. The ingredients are grape seed, red wine extract, pine bark, billberry, citrus, vitamins and minerals. The company offers a wide variety of multivitamins, wellness supplements and weight-loss products. Usage depends on the supplement. 
Isotonix has been around for over 10 years. The products are available on the official website and through trusted retailers. We like that we found some positive customer comments and the use of a few natural ingredients, but read on…
Price – “Wowsers?”
The first issue we came across with Isotonix ingredients was price. While it seems affordable at first glance, it’s much more expensive than a daily multivitamin or wellness supplement that you could get at the drug store. “Isotonix isn’t prohibitively expensive,” said our Research Editor. “But compared to similar products, it’s more than double the price for the same ones in tablet form.”
“Before I realized it, I had $300 worth of Isotonix products,” said one user.
“These…seem to do the trick, but is it really that different than what I can get at Walgreens?,” said another.
According to some Isotonix reviews, cost didn’t come into the equation.
“I have been using Isotonix opc-3 for a month. My health is worth this price,” said a user.
Isotonix Inconvenience – “Concerning?”
One other complaint that many people have pertains to the powders as an inconvenience. “I’ve been taking Isotonix for a month now, but I miss at least one day a week because [they] are so inconvenient,” said one customer.
“These seem to work when I can get the mix right, but that’s only about half the time,” offers another.
“I hope I’m getting the mixture right, but I’m not seeing any results,” explains one frustrated reviewer.
We found that not every dieter thought Isotonix was inconvenient.
“I take it in the am as soon as i get up, mix 1 and 1/2 caps full of water (cap that is on the container) and 3 of the lids that hold the powder in, and mix it up,” said a customer.
“I’ve been taking OPC for over 15 years, and it’s easy to take, mix and drink first thing every morning,” reported another.
Throughout our research into supplements, whenever there’s something that’s concerning, like being inconvenient, long-term success is slim. If Isotonix takes too long to prepare, this could be an issue. 
The Science – “Clinical Proof?”
Some of the Isotonix products are well-researched and proven to help with weight-loss. Unfortunately these same ingredients are in the supplements that you can find at a fraction of the cost on the shelves in any grocery or drug store. These do have the benefit of taking effect faster, but that benefit isn’t worth paying double for. Here at DietSpotlight, in order to recommend something it must be better than more affordable alternatives and proven in clinical studies. When you’re paying more for something that offers similar results, we lean toward the cheaper alternative. 
The Bottom Line – Does Isotonix Work?
So, the last of the facts have trickled in. What’s our take on this one? We like the fact that Isotonix has been on the market for over 10 years and that it seems to have developed a cult-like following. We also like the results that some users have seen and that the product is readily available, but we have reservations recommending this because of the more affordable alternatives on the market that accomplish the exact results.  We’re also concerned about the inconvenience of mixing the powders. 
If you’d like a convenient, affordable way to lose, we suggest a supplement that provides healthy and steady weight-loss with a formula that has ingredients backed by published research and trials. We also suggest you find a product that doesn’t have cheaper alternatives that provide the same benefits.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This proprietary blend of four ingredients has been clinically proven to help boost weight-loss by promoting metabolism and fat loss. The supplement has not led to any adverse side effects and users online seem happy with the results that they’ve seen.
Right now, the makers of Leptigen are standing behind their product with a Special Trial Offer, which shows just how confident they are that you’ll love the supplement.

Isotonix: What You Should KnowIsotonix is a line of health and wellness supplements produced by the Market America brand. Some products include Isotonix OPC-3, DNA Miracles Multivitamin Plus, Isotonix Bromelain, DNA Miracles Isotonix and Isotonix Calcium Plus. With several different products, ranging from multi-vitamins to weight management and anti-aging, this company is targeted at anyone who has health concerns, and has the products to address them. Sort of like Qivana, even though Qivana is an MLM company. Some products are based in chromium like Biocitrin. Read this review to learn more about their products and how they may be able to help you reach your weight loss goals.
Isotonix List of IngredientsIsotonix produces several different health and wellness supplements. The ingredients will vary depending on which product you buy. We suggest you take a closer look at the supplement ingredients on the product or products you are interested in.
Product FeaturesIsotonix products include: Anti-Aging, Antioxidants, Blood Sugar Maintenance, Bone & Joint, Digestive Health, Family Health, General Health, Heart Health, Sports Nutrition, Skin Health and Weight Management. In this respect, striking similarities can be drawn between Isotonix and Organo Gold products that also have varied effects. The products average about $40 each for a month’s supply, but each purchase earns you a small amount of customer loyalty currency to help you get discounts on later purchases. The weight management product is called Isotonix IsoChrome, and its main ingredient is chromium, which has been shown in clinically studies to help stabilize blood sugar levels in much the same way Mulberry leaf does in Slim Xtreme Gold. Stabilized blood sugar levels not only helps with diabetics, but it can keep those with normal blood sugar levels from having too many cravings or feeling too hungry when they are not.

- This product involves mixing, and if you mix it incorrectly, it may not work as effectively.
- There are no dietary recommendations to support these products.
- There are no exercise recommendations to support these products.
- Many of their products are supported by mixed reviews.
ConclusionIsotonix products cater to a wide variety of health needs. Isotonix IsoChrome is similar to many others chromium based weight loss products on the market today, except that it is available in liquid form while the others are some sort of pill, be they capsule or tablet. With the hassle of having to correctly mix the liquid, you can save money, time and frustration by choosing another one of those products. However, chromium alone is not going to be the answer to your weight loss journey. As with Prevagen certain ingredients just don't do it all. For any weight loss supplement to be effective, it needs to be clinically proven as such, and taken as directed. It should also be combined with a nutritionally balanced, slightly reduced calorie diet. It should also be used with a regular exercise routine that involves both cardiovascular exercise.

Isotonix Scientific Abstracts:
Grape Seed Extract
People have been using grapes, grape leaves, and sap for medicinal reasons for centuries, and grape seed extract was established in the 1970’s. Grape seed extract today can be useful as a nutritional supplement for conditions such as venous insufficiency (when veins have trouble transporting blood from the legs to the heart), stimulate healing of lesions, and decreasing inflammation. It has been recommended that the compounds in grape seed extract could decrease swelling and aid with habitual venous insufficiency symptoms. Grape seed extract has also been found to possibly be an advantage for heart health with the ability to decrease systolic blood pressure and heart rate.
Red Wine Extract
It has been stated that through studies it was found that the consumption of wine, specifically red wine is good for heart health. It can be assumed that the defensive effect red wine has on heart health is due to the quantities of alcohol and antioxidants it possesses. The alcohol enhances the dilation of blood vessels which in turn reduces blood pressure and the antioxidants in the red wine have the ability to decrease oxidative stress on the heart.
Pine Bark Extract
Through multiple studies it has been proposed that natural antioxidant could avert oxidative harm. Pycnogenol (Pine Bark Extract) is one of these natural antioxidants that has been acknowledged for its powerful ability to hunt down free radicals. It consists of polyphenolic compounds that may be able to make various effects that could possible protect against chronic and degenerative illnesses. It has been reported to have advantages on heart health and the ability to improve blood circulation.
Bilberry is related to the blueberry and its leaves and berries have been used medicinally for a number of conditions such as diarrhea, scurvy, infections, burns, and diabetes since the Middle Ages. There is no scientific proof backing the use of bilberry medicinally, but today it is used as a nutritional supplement for heart ailments, diarrhea, urinary tract infections, eye issues, diabetes, and other illnesses. Some studies have stated there may be health advantages because the berries are high in antioxidants called anthocyanins.
Bitter orange (Citrus Extract) has traditionally been used by those native to the Amazon for constipation, nausea, and indigestion. Several bitter orange products are used today as supplements for heartburn, appetite loss, congestions, and weight loss. Application to the skin for pain, bruising, and bed sores are other common uses. It is sometimes used in weight loss products because it includes synephrine which is comparable to the key chemical in ephedra; which was banned by the FDA. Bitter orange oil could assist with ringworm, jock itch, and athlete’s food, but there not enough scientific proof to promote using it for any other health reasons.

Isotonix Side Effects:
Isotonix is meant to help with weight loss. Most users have had a side effect-free experience with this product (even when they didn’t meet their weight loss goals). However, everyone’s body reacts differently to substances. These are the side effects reported by users in some cases.
Acid reflux is when the ring of muscles in your stomach collectively known as the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) fails to close properly, allowing stomach acid to move into the esophagus. When you have acid reflux, you feel an acute burning sensation (heart burn) in your chest. At times, this can be accompanied by stomach pain and nausea. You normally experience regurgitation—the bitter taste of acid coming up into your throat. Additional symptoms of acid reflux are burping, bloating, persistent hiccups, and a feeling of food being stuck in your throat (dysphagia).
What causes acid reflux?
Hiatal hernia—a disease in which the upper part of the stomach and LES move above the diaphragm—is the most common cause of acid reflux.  Other common factors that may lead to acid reflux are eating close to bedtime, smoking, or eating irritants like alcohol, coffee, and spicy food. Medications like aspirin and ibuprofen can also provoke acid reflux.
When you have blurred vision, your eyesight is suddenly impaired. You temporarily lose your ability to see clearly and in fine detail. It can take place in one eye or in both. Often, blurred vision occurs along with migraines, light sensitivity, and redness in the eyes.
What causes blurred vision?
Blurry vision has many possible causes. It may be the result of abrasions to the cornea, cataracts, or trauma and injury. It may also be a sign of a serious condition like a stroke. If you have diabetes, you may also experience blurry vision if your blood level has a major fluctuation.
Constipation is when you have difficulty with your bowel movement. You feel the need to go to the restroom but the stool don’t pass, or will only do so after much strain. Normally constipation goes hand in hand with stomach pain, which can vary in severity from general aches to acute pangs.
What causes constipation?
There are many lifestyle factors that lead to constipation: lack of fiber, not drinking enough water, not doing enough exercise. Consuming too much alcohol, caffeine, and junk food can provoke constipation.  If you’re constipated for a long period of time or get constipated often, check with your doctor for analysis and treatment.
Insomnia, or sleeplessness, is difficulty falling or staying asleep. It involves a feeling of intense restlessness that often has you rolling around in bed—sometimes for several hours on-end.
What causes insomnia?
Insomnia can be caused by psychological factors like stress and anxiety. It may also be the sign of an underlying illness like asthma, allergy, and neurological conditions. Poor sleeping habits like eating or watching TV right before bed can also contribute to sleeplessness. Some Isotonix users have experienced side effects. Before beginning use, go over your health situation with your physician to make sure this product is right for you.
Isotonix is a line of supplements that includes OPC-3, Calcium Plus and Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics. There's really nothing there for weight-loss, though supporting overall health is important when cutting calories and exercising to lose weight.

We dug deep into the Isotonix ingredients to give you the facts and details you need.
B vitamins include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid and pyridoxine. These components are commonly found in multivitamin supplements and herbal weight-loss products. You can also these micronutrients from various food sources.
What is it Supposed to Do?
Often B vitamins are added to weight-loss supplements to help convert food into fuel and boost energy levels. These nutrients are commonly added to energy drinks as well.
A 2015 study published in Advances in Nutrition found that 15 to 29 percent of those who were seeking weight-loss surgery were deficient in the B vitamin. Colorado State University explains that thiamine plays an important role in helping to normalize appetite.” Therefore getting your b vitamins may be beneficial for weight management.
Resveratrol is a natural phenol that is found in fruits such as mulberries, grapes, raspberries and blueberries. Wine is a popular source, because it is made from grapes. This ingredient is available in some dietary supplements for health and weight-loss as well.
What is it Supposed to Do?
There are several claims regarding resveratrol. For instance, this substance is supposed to help combat damaging free radicals, treat and prevent cancer, assist with anti-aging, promote heart health, and aid with weight reduction.
According to WebMD, “Resveratrol helps reduce inflammation, prevents the oxidation of LDL “bad” cholesterol, and makes it more difficult for platelets to stick together and form the clots that can lead to a heart attack.” However, this ingredient may not directly cause weight-loss.
Chromium is a mineral that is found in foods like green beans, grape juice, broccoli, raw onions and romaine lettuce. The body requires this nutrient in small amounts, and it’s often found in multivitamins and diet supplements.
What is it Supposed to Do?
The primary claim for chromium in diet products is that it balances blood sugar levels. This may help prevent weight gain and manage food cravings. It’s sometimes used to treat type 2 diabetes as well.
“In one well designed study, people with type 2 diabetes who took chromium picolinate had better HbA1c values — used to measure long-term control of blood sugar levels — than those who took placebo. The group taking chromium also had better fasting blood glucose levels, a measure of short-term control of blood sugar levels,” says the University of Maryland Medical Center.
