Details


Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink supports your body’s immune functions with a combination of bromelain, white willow bark and protease. It works with the body’s own repair system, promoting the body’s normal healing process. It also supports the body’s tissue recovery and repair.

Some cells in the body “disguise” themselves from the immune system by using a protein layering as a shield. Protease enzymes like bromelain help support your immune system in detecting these cells. These enzymes help support your body’s ability to engage in a so-called “cellular house cleaning” important to the maintenance of cellular health.

Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink delivers its ingredients in an isotonic form, meaning you’re getting an easily absorbable product that works quickly. Support your body in facing what life puts in its way.

Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink is for everybody every day.

Ingredients


Bromelain

Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found in the stems ofpineapples. It is distinct from the bromelain found in the pineapple fruit.

Asa mixture of proteases, bromelain has been used by Europeans for many years forits health related benefits. Its components work to help support the body’snormal immune functions and healing process. This is important for healthyjoint function and adequate tissue repair.

Bromelain has been studied both inexperimental models and clinical studies for its effects on the immunefunctions. It also supports healthy levels of fibrin in the blood, whichpromotes healing.

Other studies provide support of bromelain for promotingoverall general well-being along with support of comfort and physical function.There is also support for its role in promoting healthy cells. 


White Willow Bark
 

White willow bark is the bark of the salix tree, which is nativeto Europe and Asia. Its name comes from the color of the leaves, which arecovered with white hairs. White willow bark has been traditionally used formany years, dating back as far as the ancient Egyptians who used it for itshealth properties.

Willow bark constituents include flavonoids, tannins andsalicylates. The active constituent of willow bark is thought to be salicin. Inthe body, salicin is metabolized to salicyl alcohol and then to salicylic acid.White willow bark has been shown to support normal blood flow. 


Protease
 

Proteases are proteolytic enzymes that work to break specificpeptide bonds or break down a complete peptide to amino acids. As systemicenzymes, proteases support the body’s normal recovery process.

Combined withbromelain and white willow bark, the proteases support the body’s ability tostay healthy and heal.

FAQ


Who should take Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink?
Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink is formulated for everyone, every day. Its combination of benefits — supporting the body’s normal ability to repair itself, supporting the body’s normal healing process, supporting cellular health and more — make it ideally suited for adults looking to keep their bodies healthy and to help support the body’s ability to deal with the wear and tear of everyday life.

How do you take Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink?
As the directions suggest, pour three (3) level, white bottle capfuls of powder into a cup. Add 6 fl. oz./180 ml (line on the overcap indicates 2 fl. oz./60 ml) of water and stir. As a health food, take once daily or as directed by your healthcare provider. Maximum absorption occurs when taken on an empty stomach. This product is isotonic only if the specified amounts of powder and water are used. Do not take with food.

Where does bromelain come from?
Bromelain is found in every part of the pineapple, although it is most plentiful in the stem. Most commercially-grown pineapple is sliced, canned or juiced. The remains are rich with this substance, which is then extracted. Originally used as a meat tenderizer because of its ability to break down proteins, research now shows that powdered bromelain promotes health.

How does bromelain work to support cell health?
Some cells in the body “disguise” themselves from the immune system by using a protein layering as a shield. Protease enzymes like bromelain help support your immune system in detecting these cells. These enzymes help support your body’s ability to engage in a so-called “cellular house cleaning” important to the maintenance of cellular health.

I am a very active individual. How does Isotonix Bromelain Plus Powder Drink support my body’s normal ability to repair and heal?

I am on my 3rd order!

I've started running again, and I've been taking this with my Peak Performance Blend. I have noticed I can run longer because my knees don't feel as stiff, and that is a great thing! I am going to keep taking these products together. Do they come in the travel packs?

Already Convinced

I haven't been using this product long. But I have been using Bromelain, (in tablet or capsule form) for years as an anti-inflammatory. I was taking 3 times the dosage recomended for Isotonix Bromelain Plus with less results. The delivery system is so superior.
