Frequently Asked Questions*
Why was nutraMetrix Isotonix® Activated B-Complex chosen for the balance bundle?
B-vitamins, such as B6, B12 and folic acid, must undergo chemical changes before the body can utilize them. Furthermore, different factors, such as age and physical condition, may affect the body's ability to activate vitamins on its own. If the non-active forms are present, the body is forced to work harder to gain the full benefit of the vitamin. When B-vitamins are already in their active states, optimal utilization by the body can occur. Hundreds of bodily biochemical reactions are supported by B-vitamins, and deficiency in vitamin B can lead to fatigue and lethargy. A B-complex vitamin is a mixture of eight essential B-vitamins that are critical to metabolism at the cellular level. nutraMetrix Isotonix Activated B-complex helps to maintain healthy levels of serotonin, increase energy and decrease stress.
Why was nutraMetrix Isotonix® Multi-Mineral chosen for the balance bundle? Proper amounts of minerals are necessary for optimal health. nutraMetrix Isotonix Multi-Mineral provides 14 essential minerals that support a normal metabolic process, promote the normal electrolyte balance, help maintain a sound skeleton, and support the normal regulation of functions of muscles and nerves. As well as normal regulation of hormonal activities all over the body, including the brain. nutraMetrix Isotonix Multi-Mineral contains such minerals as manganese, necessary for normal brain and nerve function, zinc, an essential trace mineral that has functions in approximately 300 different enzyme reactions, including those in the brain as well as magnesium which is required for regulation of the body temperature, proper nerve function, helping the body handle stress, and regulating metabolism.
Why was nutraMetrix® Isotonix Essentials™ Turn Down chosen for the balance bundle?
nutraMetrix® Isotonix Essentials™ Turn Down is designed for relaxation, featuring a custom blend of vitamins, amino acids and minerals all in one easy-to-use packet. The formula contains effective key ingredients to help you quiet down your body, promote mental clarity, control mental tension and support healthy sleep quality. Many people can benefit from slowing down life a little. According to the American Institute of Stress, 77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress (e.g. fatigue, headache, muscle tension); 76% regularly experience psychological symptoms caused by stress (e.g. irritability, lack of energy, feeling nervous); and, 48% reported lying awake at night due to stress. Some of the top causes of stress are job pressure, money, health, relationships, poor nutrition, media overload and sleep deprivation. nutraMetrix Isotonix Essentials Turn Down helps enhance and stabilize your mood, promote mental clarity and support a healthy sleep quality.
Why was nutraMetrix® Heart Health™ Omega III Fish Oil w/Vitamin E chosen for the Balance Bundle?
Heart Health Essential Omega III with Vitamin E is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and contains 3000mg of fish oil. Heart Health Essential Omega III comes from small fish where other competitive products use large fish, which are more likely to accumulate toxins. Heart Health Essential Omega III provides a high quality, high purity product with significant percentages of the health promoting EPA and DHA. Every batch of fish oil is hand selected and tested prior to processing by our manufacturer and must pass more than 200 quality checks during the production process. Recent research has shown that fish oil may be beneficial in supporting cognitive function by helping the body manage stress and enhance mood. In an article published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the effects of omega-3 fish oil supplementation were shown to be beneficial for healthy cognitive and cardiac functioning.
Why was nutraMetrix TLS® ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula chosen for the Balance Bundle?
When we are faced with stress, our bodies go into "fight or flight" response and certain hormones are released by the adrenal gland, hormones that give the body a burst of energy and strength. This response used to be beneficial to our ancestors, allowing their bodies to physically fight or run away when faced with danger. However, in today’s society, this response acts much differently, taking place as a result of stressful days at the office or traffic jam on your way home. The response is supposed to return to normal once the perceived threat is gone, but if the body is unable to return to normalcy due to increased stress levels, it could have a negative effect upon the body with symptoms including adrenal fatigue, suppressed thyroid function, an imbalance in blood sugar levels, and increased abdominal (adipose) fat.* nutraMetrix TLS ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula, specially formulated with Holy basil and Ashwagandha, works specifically to promote healthy adrenal gland function, cortisol levels and thyroid function to help control stress levels. nutraMetrix TLS ACTS helps your body adapt to stress by promoting healthy hormone levels and function.

Optimizing Your Genetic Environment – 5 Important Considerations
1. There isn’t one Superstar Gene – a healthy gene environment is not influenced by just one gene, but how all your genes interact with each other. Knowing your personal gene story will help provide the information needed to create an optimal gene environment.
2. Gene pathways – Your genetic expression may take one of three pathways:
- Optimal gene potential – pathways to “turn up” or optimize;
- Alternative – pathways needing a different combination/form of nutrient composition to support a unique gene environment or “turn down”;
- arrested or low/non-functioning – pathways to support or redirect.
3.One size does not fit all – because your gene story is unique, a health program should be personalized and tailored to the needs of your body. Your nutraMetrix Health Professional could help you by performing a Gene SNP DNA Analysis that will show gene variations and what components should be targeted.
4. Gene environment is influenced by more than nutrients – although nutrients are an essential component in optimizing your gene environment, maintaining an active lifestyle can significantly regulate gene environment. Sleep and stress management must be addressed to maximize your genetic potential. Nutrients and supplementation can help maximize your fitness, sleep, and stress/balance potential.
5. Combination is key – Because there is no one “master” promoter of health or optimized gene environment, it is vital to have a combination of different components, such as:
- Physical Fitness
- Optimized Sleep
- Stress Balance
- Select nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants
Focusing on one component will not have a significant impact on your health. It takes a commitment to exercise, getting the proper amount of sleep, managing stress, as well as the nutrients you eat and supplements you take to create your optimal gene environment.
Key Ingredients Found In The Balance Bundle*
nutraMetrix Isotonix Activated B-Complex
Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12) (120 mcg)
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is a bacterial product naturally found in animal products, especially organ meats, such as liver, with small amounts derived from peanuts and fermented soy products, such as miso and tempeh. It is essential that vegetarians consume a vitamin B12 supplement to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B12, when ingested, is stored in the liver and other tissues for later use. It supports the maintenance of cells, especially those of the nervous system, bone marrow and intestinal tract.
Folate [as (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt, Quatrefolic®] (432 mcg)
Folic acid plays a key role by boosting the benefits of B12 supplementation. These two B vitamins join forces and work together in maintaining normal red blood cells. Folic acid assists in the normal utilization of amino acids and proteins, as well as supporting the construction of the material for DNA and RNA synthesis, which is necessary for all bodily functions.
Quatrefolic® is the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and is structurally analogous to the reduced and active form of folic acid. Because this form is naturally present in the body, it is much more bioavailable for its biological action without having to be metabolized in the body. This patented ingredient also provides greater sfont-style: italic;">Quatrefolic® is a registered trademark of Gnosis S.p.A. and is protected by U.S. patent No. 7,947,662.
Riboflavin-5-Phosphate (Vitamin B2) (3 mg)
Vitamin B2 is found in liver, dairy products, dark green vegetables and some types of seafood. Vitamin B2 serves as a coenzyme, working with other B vitamins. It promotes healthy red blood cell formation, supports the nervous system, respiration, antibody production and normal human growth. It supports healthy skin, nails, hair growth and promotes normal thyroid activity (a healthy thyroid is essential in maintaining a healthy weight, among other things). Vitamin B2 supports the body's ability to turn food into energy as a part of the electron transport chain, driving cellular energy on the micro-level.
Magnesium (Carbonate) (40 mg)
Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green, leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches, milk, refined and processed foods contain low amounts of magnesium. Recent research shows that many American diets are magnesium deficient.
Potassium (Bicarbonate) (94 mg)
Potassium is an electrolyte stored in the muscles. Foods rich in potassium include bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery.
Thiamin HCl (Vitamin B1) (2 mg)
Thiamin promotes normal carbohydrate metabolism and nerve function. Thiamin is required for a healthy nervous system and supports the production of certain neurotransmitters which have an important role in muscle function. It supports the digestive process, increases energy and helps promote mental clarity.
D-Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5) (20 mg)
Pantothenic acid (B5) promotes proper neurotransmitter activity in the brain. Pantothenic acid is also known as the anti-stress vitamin because it helps relieve physical and emotional stress, and promotes the secretion of hormones essential for optimal health.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) (20 mg)
Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health, growth and reproduction. Niacin supports the proper functioning of the digestive system, skin and nerves. It promotes the conversion of food to energy. Niacin is found in dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats, nuts, eggs, legumes, and enriched breads and cereals.
Biotin (Vitamin B7) (300 mcg)
Biotin can be found in food sources, such as egg yolks, peanuts, beef liver, milk, cereals, almonds and Brewer’s yeast. Biotin promotes healthy cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats and amino acids. It supports the citric acid cycle, which is the process in which energy is generated during exercise. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining steady blood sugar levels. Biotin is often recommended for maintaining strong hair and nails.
nutraMetrix Isotonix Multi Mineral
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Around 90 percent of vitamin C in the average American diet is derived from fruits and vegetables. Peppers (sweet, green, red, hot red and green chili) 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. It is important to note that cooking destroys vitamin C activity.
Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol)
Regular sunlight exposure is the main way that most people obtain vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D include only a few such as vitamin D-fortified milk (100 IU per cup), cod liver oil, fatty fish such as salmon, and small amounts found in egg yolks and liver.
Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and induces the production of several proteins involved in calcium absorption and storage.
Calcium is found in dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt), Chinese cabbage, kale and broccoli. Calcium is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological roles. Calcium exists in bone primarily in the form of hydroxyapatite (Ca10 (PO4) 6 (OH) 2). Hydroxyapatite comprises approximately 40 percent of the weight of bone. The skeleton has an obvious structural requisite for calcium. The skeleton also acts as a storehouse for calcium.
Iron is mainly found in citrus fruits, tomatoes, beans, peas, fortified bread and grain products, such as cereal (non-heme iron sources). Beef, liver, organ meats and poultry comprise the heme iron sources. The heme iron sources are more easily absorbed than the non-heme type of iron.
Iron is an essential mineral.
Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green, leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches and milk contain lesser amounts of magnesium. Refined and processed foods are generally quite low in magnesium.
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafoods, including oysters. It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. It is also involved in the regulation of gene expression. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in approximately 300 different enzyme reactions. Thus, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes.
The best dietary sources of selenium include nuts, unrefined grains, brown rice, wheat germ and seafood.
The richest sources of dietary copper derive from organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereal, whole grain products and cocoa products.
Copper has antioxidant properties and acts as a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. It is an essential trace mineral.
Chromium (amino nicotinate)
Chromium is found naturally in some cereals, meats, poultry, brewer's yeast, broccoli, prunes mushrooms, fish and beer.
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in glucose metabolism, regulation of insulin levels, and the maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other fats. Chromium combines to form something in the body called glucose tolerance factor or GTF, which has an impact on the actions of insulin in promoting healthy blood sugar levels. It is claimed that chromium helps support healthy blood sugar levels, cholesterol and triglycerides, as it increases insulin sensitivity.
Molybdenum (sodium molybdate)
The richest sources of molybdenum come from legumes, cereal grains, leafy vegetables, milk, beans, liver and kidney. It is required for the activity of some enzymes that are involved in catabolism. Deficiency in molybdenum is rare but can be very serious.
To combat fatigue, athletes in sprint-type sports take a form of sodium bicarbonate. During very intense exercise, lactic acid accumulation in the muscle cells can lead to premature fatigue and may reduce athletic performance. Sodium bicarbonate also improves endurance performance.
Foods rich in potassium include fresh vegetables and fruits such as bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery. Potassium is stored in the muscles. Potassium is an essential macro mineral that helps to maintain fluid balance. It also plays a role in a wide variety of biochemical and physiological processes.
Foods rich in vanadium include black pepper, mushrooms, shellfish, parsley and dill seed. Studies have shown that vanadium supports healthy blood glucose levels.
