Directions For Use
1. Pour contents of packet into a cup.
2. Add 8 fl. oz. of water into the cup and stir.
As a dietary supplement, 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 water and powder are used.
Females 18 years of age and older who want to support healthy skin and body, specific to women’s needs.*
How often should I use Isotonix Essentials® Women’s Health?
- Magnesium (Glycinate) makes Women’s Health bioavailable and supports cognitive health*
- Nutrients in Women’s Health help support collagen production, strong hair and nails*
If you are currently using any prescription medication, have an ongoing medical condition or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare provider before using this product. Magnesium should be used cautiously in individuals with reduced kidney function due to an increased risk of hypermagnesemia. Discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider if you experience diarrhea, abdominal cramping or discomfort.

Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth. A sufficient daily calcium intake is necessary for maintaining bone density. Calcium has been shown to reduce symptoms of PMS in women.* Calcium also may play a role in promoting cardiovascular health.
Magnesium works together with calcium to help maintain normal blood pressure. Importantly, magnesium also supports the body’s ability to build healthy bones and teeth, and promotes proper muscle development. It works together with calcium and vitamin D to help keep bones strong. Magnesium also promotes cardiovascular health by supporting normal platelet activity and helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels.*
Magnesium supports the normal release of energy from food during metabolism, regulation of body temperature and proper nerve function. Importantly, magnesium also promotes healthy bones, teeth and normal muscle development. It works together with calcium and vitamin D to promote strong bones. *
Potassium (Bicarbonate): 320 mg
Vitamin E was discovered in the early 1930s. It is available in a natural or synthetic form. In most cases, the natural and synthetic form of vitamins and minerals are identical. However, the natural form of Vitamin E is superior, in terms of absorption and retention in the body.
Vitamin B6 (Pyrodoxine HCl, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate): 8 mg
Zinc (Lactate): 3.75 mg
Folic acid (folate) must go through a series of chemical conversions before it becomes metabolically active to be properly utilized. Folinic acid is the highly bioavailable, metabolically active derivative of folic acid. It does not require the action of the enzyme dihydrofolinate reductase to become active, so it's not affected by substances and herbs that inhibit this enzyme. Some people have a genetic variation (in the MTHRF gene) that reduces the amount of activated folic acid in the body. Folinic acid, unlike folic acid, is not negatively impacted by this genetic variation.*
Quatrefolic® is the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, the most active form of folate, as it 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.*
Quatrefolic® is the registered trademark of Gnosis S.p.A. and is protected by U.S. Patent No. 7,947,662.
Taking beta-carotene by mouth along with vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc daily, seems to support eye health. *

I love the convenience, the taste and how well I feel when I take this packet! I take many other Isotonix products, but the ingredients in this packet help me feel energetic, digested and mentally balanced. I like this in a fun glass during quiet time. It's my go to wind down drink!
For the Woman on the Go!
This complete vitamin pack really packs a punch. It is so much more than a multi-vitamin. With quality trademarked ingredients like Quatrafolic, SunActive and Pycnogelol, it provides me with energy and focus when I just have too much going on. I also love the added hyaluronic acid, so not only do I feel good when I'm running around like crazy, but I look good doing it!
Great product for overall Women's Health but also to balance and regulate our system. I feel a more sustained energy throughout the day and overall more calm
