I started searching for a supplement that would help me. I was going through some health challenges and cardiovascular pressure. I have been taking supplements for a long time and never knew about OPC’s. and I never was educated on the delivery system of different supplements. I now know first hand how important it is to get a high absorption rate, in fact that is what makes the supplement really help the condition you need it for. My son-in-law, turned me on to it and I started taking the Isotonix OPC-3 and within a week I noticed a change in my blood pressure. It lightened up. I continued to take it, my son-in-law said to give it at least a 90 day try and I was committed to do so. Well, its 90 days later and I feel 98% better. I will not go without it. I have added a few more isotonix supplements to my routine and I feel so much better than I did 3 months ago. I am walking every day, swimming and feel like my motivated self again. I started to carry the products at the center because I feel they are the best I can offer my clients that are looking for a nutritional supplement to help them.

Market America's Isotonix supplements are scientifically-advanced formulas designed to give your body the maximum benefit from vitamins and minerals. Isotonix® offers a complete array of products designed to fit your needs.
When you take a daily vitamin or nutritional supplement tablet, your body must work hard for up to 4 hours to digest and absorb the vitamins and minerals. During that process, your body may not absorb enough nutrients to gain the maximum benefit it needs to remain healthy.
Isotonix supplements use an isotonic formula to speed nutrients to your body where they are needed most. An isotonic formula utilizes a great-tasting powder formula, that, when mixed with water, minimizes the amount of digestion needed to deliver maximum benefit to your body. Through this effective method, Isotonix supplements provide superior delivery and speed nutrients to your body.*
Isotonix® OPC-3 is a powerful combination of plant-derived bioflavonoids, known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPC's. Made from a unique combination of grape seed, pine bark and red wine extracts (in addition to bilberry and citrus extracts), these OPC's are super-effective free radical neutralizers.*
Not limited to just being strong antioxidants, OPCs play a crucial role in supporting your body's circulatory system, vision health, complexion and cholesterol levels. OPC-3 is a natural, great tasting supplement that should be taken for a lifetime!*

DVT (blood clots)
“A while back, I went to my doctor, believing I had hurt my knee while swimming. He took one look at my red, swollen leg and told me to go to the Emergency Room immediately, because it looked to him like I had a blood clot. It turned out I had clots all along my left leg, from the ankle to the hip, and at the hip, the vein was 99% blocked. Shocked, scared, powerless, angry, and fragile don't even begin to describe the whirlwind of emotions I experienced during the week I ended up staying in the hospital.
After a week of rest at home, I was back to work, limping around and spending the rest of my time in a chair with my leg on 2 pillows. About that time, a friend gave me a DVD to watch about OPCs. We also found a doctor's newsletter that discussed what a powerful antioxidant Pycnogenol is and how studies were showing it was effective in preventing and clearing blood clots. I ordered OPC-3 immediately.
I started using OPC-3, and in three days I could feel something was changing. I liken the feeling to an iceberg that was beginning to melt in the center. I started moving around a little better, and, remarkably, in two weeks, I was back to swimming three days a week with no pain and greatly reduced swelling.
In the hospital, they had told me to expect slow progress and that I may not be back to normal for six months, a year, or even two years, because of the severity of my clots.
After two months using OPC-3, I went back to my doctor for an evaluation. After he listened to my chest for a long time, he said I sounded very good and asked to see my leg. I pulled up both pant legs to offer him a comparison with my unaffected leg. He asked, "Which one is it?" When I told him, he said, "Wow. That's good. That's really good." It took a few hours for me to really understand how astonishing that trip to the doctor was: in two months of using OPC-3, I had gone from being a chair with my leg up to my doctor not being able to tell which leg had been affected. Needless to say, OPC-3 is my favorite product.”
Blood Pressure and Body Pains
“I had been having pains in the arches of my feet - so severe that they woke me up at night. I had not been sleeping more than a couple hours a night for several months. I stand all day at my job, so foot pain would not be unusual, but the doctor couldn't find any direct cause. A short time ago, I began taking OPC-3 hoping it would lower my blood pressure. In just over 2 weeks, not only has my blood pressure dropped 10 points, but the pain in my feet has also gone away. I'm sleeping better and feeling better than I have for a long time.”

“I have been visually challenged most of my life. I am exceptionally myopic (nearsighted) and in the past ten years have developed Uveitis (an inflammation of the fluid in the retina) and glaucoma. Recently I have been experiencing additional unexplained loss of vision. Visual field tests revealed a 25% loss of vision in my left eye with no known cause or treatment. I was petrified about losing my sight completely, as neither my ophthalmologist nor vitreo-retinal specialist could determine why I was unable to see.
A specialist at the Kresge Eye Institute said the blood vessels in my eyes were not working properly due to some indeterminate blockage. The only thing he said was “I can understand why you cannot see”. He offered no course of treatment and gave me no prognosis for the future. I felt at a loss as to what to do to protect my vision.
While researching Market America literature on their line of health and nutritional products I found a newsletter published by Dr. Russell L. Blaylock called the Blaylock report. An article on Pycnogenol – a primary ingredient in Market America’s OPC-3 -said “A growing number of people are losing their sight to diseases of the eye that affect mostly the retina.
The main cause is progressive blockage of the tiny blood vessel within the retina.” After only a few weeks of taking OPC-3 on a daily basis my vision tested 20-15 which is better than it’s been my entire life. I now have hope that I can not only arrest the loss of vision I was experiencing, but even improve my myopia as well. Thank you Market America for OPC-3!”
“I believe pain is a signal something is not balanced in the body. I was starting to feel a little frightened at the pain I was experiencing in my chest area. It wasn't anything huge but little jolts of pain on a consistent basis especially in the evening. This was causing some anxiety. I have never been one to take prescription drugs, but more about exploring my options as to what is good for me to take naturally to help my body overcome whatever the challenge I was experiencing. Over the years I have proven to myself that nutrients play a huge part in maintaining my wellness. I was introduced to OPC-3 by Vince Pitre and the Market America team when I went to an informational seminar. I decided then to try it. It only took a week and the pain went away. I take it every day and there is a feeling of a renewed strength in my body and I have not experienced the pain back. I recommend this for anyone who is healthy or not, to either maintain or activate our body’s natural curative forces at its optimal best. When there’s pain it’s very hard to do any activity, hobbies, work, exercise, and there is very little motivation. Since I have been on the OPC-3 I am feeling more motivated to walk and exercise on a daily basis. If there is one product that I would recommend people take on a regular maintenance wellness program it would be OPC-3. It’s so affordable and offers so much for the $. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by regaining your health. When you have good health you can do anything.”
“My body has been racked with arthritis pain for the last 10 years. The surgeon concluded that there was nothing can do I do about right now other than Neovisc shots would be required twice a year at the cost of $400 per knee out of pocket money. I investigated this option and found it did not work for everyone – so I was left with “live with it”.
This constant over whelming pain was ruling my life. I was using the maximum amount of over the counter pain medication to control the pain, but it was dulling every part of my world including my mind. It was also affecting my digestive system; I was constipated, irritable and fuzzy. My daily demeanor was not pleasing to me. I no longer could get out of bed in the morning to workout in my fully equipped home gym.
I had the good fortune to be introduced to OPC-3. Within 3 weeks significant changes were happening. It was interesting that others actually noticed changes before I did. My surgeon’s secretary, who has become a friend, asked my wife, “What is Bob doing? He is not limping anymore.” Once my attention was on how my health was returning, I noticed the changes came more rapidly. What I have discovered is that my arthritic knees were not just affecting my knees; it was affecting my whole body, creating back pain since my limping would throw out my back. Today my back pain is gone. My pleasant and happy demeanor has returned and I look forward to each new day. I now awake at 6:30 am and work out pain free, and I am not even sore. My mental clarity is top notch and I can focus on creating business results once again. OPC-3 has given me my life back!”

“My lower back was MILDLY arthritic for probably ten years or so and seemed to be getting increasingly worse--yet not horrible. It hurt to bend certain ways and I just felt tension in it ALOT. Then I started with the OPC3’s, never REALLY believing they could work as fast and effectively as they did. I took 3 scoops in the morning, as directed with the water, for 5 weeks. The first two weeks I felt NO change at all. By the third week, I thought MAYBE it was getting a little better. Sometimes it's hard to tell when it happens gradually. By week 4 I knew it was getting better, and by week 6 it is 95% better and some days NO pain whatsoever! I've changed the dosage back to 1 scoop in the morning and am hopeful it will maintain the success I've had to date. I'm a convert! I'm a believer in OPC3’s!” Kimberly
“My amazing OPC-3 story starts Dec.21, 2008, just 4 days before Christmas. I dated the container of OPC-3 to remind myself to notice WHEN and IF I was feeling any benefits from taking OPC-3. I had been having inflammatory elbow pain in both arms which started about 9 months prior. The pain had increased steadily and become quite intense by Thanksgiving, to the point that I could not even sit with my elbows touching my lap or have the weight of my winter coat on my elbows for very long. I had sought out the help of 2 Chiropractors, 1 alternative M.D., 2 Holistic Health Practitioners, 2 traditional M.D.’s, and a Chiropractic Nutritional Specialist. The cause of my condition seemed to be a baffling one. Thank God someone was thoughtful enough to share their testimony about using OPC-3. Because of the hectic time of year and the fun and festivities going on at Christmas, I had not realized that the pain was disappearing in my elbows over the course of 9 days. The night before New Years Eve I found myself leaning on my chin with my elbows on the table and suddenly realized that I was doing so. WOW, my elbow pain was almost completely gone!! Over the course of the next 3 weeks the last signs of pain completely disappeared. The anti-inflammatory properties of the OPC-3 allowed my body to heal itself!!” Smile and embrace the day,

Let me begin by saying, for years I am one of those people that was not a true believer in natural-type supplements and this is directed to all you skeptics or non-believers, as I was one of you for over 50 years …
In April 2008 I was driving home from work as I was crossing a busy intersection I was hit by a vehicle that ran the red light. I went from 45 mph to an instant stop that caused a severe bilateral whiplash and strain of the trapezium muscle on the left side of my back and several weeks later an MRI revealed I also suffered protrusions, bulges and a herniated disc throughout my lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine along with a tremendous amount of nerve pain to the left side of my upper body (arm, neck & back).
After several rounds of conventional physical therapy wherein neck traction was attempted and several months of deep tissue massages, I continued to have severe pain throughout my entire upper left side with extreme nerve pain running up my neck and down my left arm. I was taking several different medications for muscle inflammation, muscle relaxers and pain medication. In fact, at times the pain became worse. While following the physician’s conventional medical care, and as several months passed, I just could not get past the point of the constant severe nerve and muscle pain in my back and arm as I could not get keep the swelling in my trapezius muscle and surrounding area from returning, which prevented the nerves from healing. I would constantly ice and use moist heat six to seven times a day to no avail, it only brought temporary relief.
I made a decision to try chiropractic therapy since I was not making any progress with conventional medicine and the medications I was taking made me nauseous and having diarrhea on a daily basis. Upon my chiropractor’s recommendation I began taking Isotonix OPC-3 in early December 2008. Within 3 days of taking OPC-3 the swelling started to subside without flaring up as previously. Within a month of using OPC-3 the swelling was not returning, which has allowed me make significant progress and my nerves now have a chance to begin healing. It has now been approximately 2-1/2 months since taking OPC-3 and I am now able to return to work. I still continue to take OPC-3 daily as I am still healing. I am still healing and OPC-3 has made a significant difference in this process and I honestly believe I would not be at this point if it were not for OPC-3.
Finally, I would also like to mention the additional benefits I have experienced since taking OPC-3. In the past I have had problems for years with sinus drainage and allergies that have only gotten worse over the years and to keep it in check I would take Claritin-D, from behind the pharmacist’s counter. Since taking OPC-3 I have not taken a single Claritin-D pill and my gagging, take your breath away cough has almost been eliminated all together. My skin also does not seem to be as dry as usual this winter as well. I also have not experienced any constipation. Over the past couple of years I have also battled the pain of tarsal tunnel syndrome, which has seemingly disappeared, amazingly. I have had take cortisone shots for the pain in both ankles in the past and since being on OPC-3 I have not had any pain, hence no more cortisone shots, YEAH!!! Also, from my accident, when my air bag went off in my steering wheel, my arm flew back and slammed my elbow into the hard plastic console causing damage to the olecranon bursa – very painful to the touch and very difficult to put the elbow down on a surface due to the tenderness. This bursa allows the elbow to bend and straighten freely underneath the skin. Several times a month, the bursa would flare up where you could not touch that area of the elbow. My conventional physician informed me that the only way to remedy the inflammation is through a cortisone shot or surgery to remove the bursa. Since taking OPC-3 I have not had any inflammation in the bursa. I am sure as time passes I will find additional benefits from taking OPC-3. I just can’t say enough the benefits I have experienced so far taking OPC-3.

“I have had a battle with yeast growing in my body for years and it usually comes out on my tongue as a white film. After my hysterectomy in 2002 my yeast got worse due to taking antibiotics for pneumonia while I was in the hospital. I noticed a change in my tongue after taking OPC-3 for 5 days on the loading dose. The yeast has cleared up, amazing huh?! I also work 3rd shift & OPC-3 has definitely given me more energy for working nights.”

“I am a Master’s Program Student, who was diagnosed with epilepsy, and over the years I have suffered with seizures, dizziness, fainting and relating ailments. In addition, my husband and I are expecting our 4th child and with my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies, I have experienced complications, such as high cholesterol and being “high risk”. Due to my various health concerns, I experienced being sick throughout my entire 3rd pregnancy as well. Therefore, I had to be closely monitored by my OB/Gyn, my “high-risk” Specialist, and my Neurologist. I began taking a product called OPC-3 with a key ingredient called “Pycnogenol” on March 1, 2009, and some amazing results and effects began taking place in my life.
I thank God for being introduced to OPC-3, because I feel like a new woman.” Simona
