Instantized Branched Chain Amino Acids 3000 mg The branched chain amino acids (BCAA) in Prime Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix have been instantized, meaning they have been developed through a unique production technology that allows for quicker dissolution in water and better bioavailability. BCAA are considered essential, as they cannot be synthesized by the human body and, therefore, must be consumed through diet or supplementation. Unlike other amino acids, BCAA are used primarily by skeletal muscle, making up 30-35 percent of the muscle tissue itself. These amino acids are important for muscle growth and retention and in the regulation of many cellular processes. As aging occurs, the body’s ability to build and retain muscle tissue or size is reduced, which can result in weakness and frailty. Research has shown that supplementation with BCAA promotes muscle retention in older adults. Additionally, it has been shown that supplementation of BCAA during exercise supports muscle protein synthesis, and inhibits protein catabolism (breakdown) and muscle fatigue. Studies indicate that BCAAs improve mental concentration, and reduce and delay mental fatigue. Though the exact mechanism by which BCAA affect mental performance is not known, it is hypothesized that by increasing blood levels of BCAA, the transport of tryptophan (causes relaxation/sleepiness) into the brain is balanced by competitive inhibition.
Grape Seed Extract (95% polyphenols) 100 mg Grape seed extract has been shown to have antioxidant properties. Studies suggest that supplementing with grape seed extract can promote normal circulation. High in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), grape seed extract is capable of decreasing and preventing the formation of free radicals which promote cardiovascular health. OPCs are also thought to promote healthy connective tissue and joint lubricant.
Huperzine A 100 mcg Huperzine A is derived from the fir moss Huperzia serrata, also known as Chinese club moss. It appears to have some antioxidant capabilities. Studies on huperzine A have shown it to be effective for improving memory. Huberzine A helps support the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine promotes normal learning, memory, cognitive well-being, healthy nerve transmission and proper muscle function. Huperzine A helps maintain normal concentration and promotes the duration of action of acetylcholine.
Can children take this product? No. This product should only be used by adults ages 18 and older.
Does this product need to be taken on an empty stomach? Yes. Maximum absorption occurs when taken on an empty stomach.
What is the warning for this product? If you are currently taking anti-cholinergic drugs†, warfarin [Coumadin], other anti-platelet/anti-coagulant medications, levodopa, or any other prescription drugs, or have an ongoing medical condition, you should consult your healthcare provider before using this product. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use this product.
This supplement contains huperzine A. Huperzine A is a reversible inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase and may cause cholinergic side effects. Caution should be used if you are taking medications that promote or suppress acetylcholine activity.
To provide your healthcare provider with more information on the ingredients in this product, refer them to the online product information.
Who should take this product? While any adult over the age of 18 can take this product, Prime™ Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix is specifically designed to address specific needs of aging adults, such as joint comfort, muscle retention and use, and cognitive health.*
What other products can I take with Prime™ Ultimate Longevity Formula by Isotonix®? While this product can be taken on its own, any adult should also take Isotonix Multivitamin and Heart Health ™ Essential Omega 3 Fish Oil with Vitamin E.

Address muscle mass and memory
Amazing - nothing comparable. Addressed the 2 main thing I am concerned about as I age - the loss of muscle mass and the loss of memory. This is such a centerpiece product that anyone over 55 should consider. Combine with light weight bearing to accelerate observable change over time.

I take it early morning. I work out every day! I haven't taken the product long enough to see if it works. But,it taste great. And it mixes great!
