An isotonic solution is a solution which has the same concentration as present in the blood or cells of body. Taking vitamins in an isotonic form allows the nutrients to be quickly absorbed in the small intestine without having to first be broken down in the stomach by stomach acids. This allows for approximately 95% bioavailability of the solution compared to about 40% of other traditional vitamins.
Many vitamins on the market today are mass market products that contain binders and fillers and cheaper, less absorbable versions of the vitamin. For instance, take Vitamin B12. There are 2 types of B12. Cyanocobalamin and Methylcobalamin. Cyanocobalamin is commonly found in most drug store vitamins. Cyanocobalamin is not found in plant or animal tissue, it is chemically synthesized and is less absorbed by the body. Methylcobalamin is the highly absorbed active form of B12. Pharmacy grade, isotonic vitamins are more expensive because they use quality ingredients in their formulations. The higher rate of absorption associated with isotonic solutions means that an individual is getting more value for their money.
Isotonic supplements are usually distributed by health professionals who can properly advise how to take these supplements. Most of us do not get adequate amounts of nutrients from the foods we eat and various medications deplete the body of certain vitamins and minerals which is why it is important to supplement our diets.
