Quinton Hypertonic contains seawater processed according to the original protocol drawn up by renowned physiologist and biologist, René Quinton, and cold filtered and sterilized under ISO 9001 to ensure quality. René Quinton (1866-1925) was aware of the importance of the health of the bioterrain (which we now understand to be the extracellular matrix and fluids) for the maintenance of health, and that germs were not an isolated cause of dysfunction.
The seawater minerals of Quinton Hypertonic are harvested from the nutrient-rich plankton blooms, pre-digested by organisms such as krill. Quinton discovered that this pure marine plasma contains perfect proportions of essential minerals, elements, and organic complexes to aid the bioterrain, and had the ability to restore the quality of our internal fluids. Often, supplemental mineral products contain complexes of minerals that are difficult for the body to absorb, however, the elements and minerals found in Quinton marine plasma do not require further breakdown and are passively absorbed by the digestive tract. Quinton also provides the exact trace element ratio for an organism to function perfectly as nature intended- in the precise ratios we evolved from in the sea itself.
As Quinton Hypertonic contains small amounts of sodium it may not be ideal for individuals following a sodium-restricted diet.
QuintEssential 3.3 provides the same blend of hypertonic seawater minerals as Quinton Hypertonic, in convenient-to-use, travel and activity friendly sachets.
