Isotonix OPC-3 Beauty Blend is formulated to support healthy skin collagen, elasticity and moisture. It provides vitamins and minerals that support a healthy complexion and it provides the skin and body with antioxidants. This product helps maintain skin health at the cellular level, nourishing and rejuvenating skin cells with some of the finest antioxidants available today including grape seed extract, red wine extract, bilberry extract, citrus bioflavonoid complex and Pycnogenol®†. These free-radical scavengers not only work to keep the skin healthy, but also provide free-radical-scavenging benefits. These antioxidants are coupled with specific vitamins and minerals that support cell health and growth.
Two of the most important factors when selecting a nutritional supplement are absorption and potency. The Isotonix delivery system, as found in Isotonix OPC-3 Beauty Blend , allows the body to absorb vitamins and minerals more rapidly. Isotonix food supplements, when mixed with water, actually have the same pH and osmotic pressure as the body's fluids such as tears, plasma and blood. In order for absorption of nutritional content to take place, all food must be converted into an isotonic state. However, our Isotonix OPC-3 Beauty Blend sets itself apart from other products on the market by providing you with the maximum absorption of nutrients, within the shortest amount of time. When an isotonic substance enters the body, it is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream.
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are bioflavonoids (complex organic plant compounds) found in fruits, vegetables and certain tree barks. Isotonix OPC-3 contains the only isotonic form of Pycnogenol in the world. Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree, and the most clinically-researched bioflavonoid.
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Grape seed extract is extremely rich in polyphenols, compounds with high antioxidant activity.
Red Wine Extract
Red wine extract is a powerful antioxidant. This extract is found in grape vines, roots, seeds and stalks, with the highest concentration in the skins. The antioxidant properties of red wine extract contribute to healthy circulation which promotes oxygen and nutrient supply to skin cells.
Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol)
Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. This unspoiled and natural forest environment is the unique source of pine bark. Pycnogenol is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace. Published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol’s wide array of beneficial effects on the body. Pine bark extract is an all-natural combination of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids.
Pynogenol acts as an antioxidant and may help to support healthy skin collagen, elasticity and moisture.
Bilberry extract is derived from the leaves and berry-like fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry. Extracts of the ripe berry are known to contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins, which are antioxidants. Bilberry extract supports venous circulation which promotes oxygen and nutrient supply to all cells, especially those of the skin.
Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex
Bioflavonoids are antioxidants found in certain plants that act as light filters, which protect delicate DNA chains and other important macromolecules by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. They have been found to help maintain healthy circulation by strengthening blood vessels.
Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate)
Hyaluronic acid or hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial and neural tissues. It is one of the main constituents of the extracellular matrix and promotes healthy cell proliferation and migration. Plentiful in extracellular matrices, hyaluronic acid supports healthy tissue hydrodynamics, movement and production of cells, and promotes a number of cell surface receptor interactions.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Most vitamin C in the average diet is derived from fruits and vegetables. Peppers (sweet, green, red and hot) are especially rich in vitamin C. Other good sources include citrus fruits and juices, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach, guava, kiwi fruit, currants and strawberries. Nuts and grains contain very little vitamin C, and it is important to note that cooking destroys vitamin C activity.
Vitamin C supports overall health and acts as an antioxidant. In fact, ascorbic acid may be the most well-known water-soluble antioxidant in the body. Vitamin C promotes the normal synthesis of collagen.
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Regular sunlight exposure is the main way that most humans obtain vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D include vitamin D-fortified milk, cod liver oil, fatty fish (such as salmon) and small amounts are found in egg yolks and liver. It supports the normal growth of skin cells and a healthy complexion.
The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E, and smaller amounts are found in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols.
Through its antioxidant activity, vitamin E can help to protect cell membranes from free radical damage.
Biotin is a part of the B-vitamin family. The B-vitamins are important co-factors, which promote the normal metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and protein. Natural food sources of biotin include egg yolk, peanuts, beef liver, milk, cereals, almonds and Brewer's yeast. Biotin operates as an important part of several enzymes. In the intestines, bacteria make a negligible amount of biotin that may be assimilated and used by the body. Biotin supports hair and nail health.
Calcium is found in milk, cheese, yogurt, corn tortillas, napa (Chinese cabbage), kale and broccoli. Calcium is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological roles. The skeleton has an obvious structural requisite for calcium. The skeleton also acts as a storehouse for calcium. Apart from being a major constituent of bones and teeth, calcium supports overall health.
Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth. A sufficient daily calcium intake is necessary for maintaining bone density.
Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are powerful sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches and milk are less rich sources of magnesium. Refined and processed foods are generally quite low in magnesium.
Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone. It helps maintain normal levels of potassium, phosphorus, calcium, adrenaline and insulin. It also promotes the mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization. Magnesium promotes strong bones and teeth and proper muscle development. It helps the body to maintain good blood circulation.
