LIPOTROPIC NUTRIENTS are compounds that promote the flow of fat & bile to and from the liver. In essence, they produce a "decongesting" effect on the liver and promote improved liver function and fat metabolism. Lipotropic substances decrease the deposit or speed up the removal of fat within the liver. Lipotropic mixtures combine liver and gallbladder therapies in one product and those using it can benefit simultaneously from the power and potential of them all.
Inositol (50mg), a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Choline (50mg) is considered one of the B-Complex vitamins as well as a lipotropic nutrient. It is present in the body of all living cells and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin. Choline appears to be associated with the utilization of fats and cholesterol in the body. It prevents fats from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats into the cells. It is essential for the health of the liver and kidneys.
Dexpanthenol (25mg) & Pyridoxine (25mg) or Vitamins B5 and B6 play a vital role in metabolism by breaking down fats and carbohydrates for energy. The higher the protein intake the greater is the requirement of B6. Vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract and it helps the body use other vitamins more effectively. It is sometimes called the "anti-stress" vitamin because it is believed to enhance the activity of the immune system and improve the body's ability to withstand stressful conditions.
Hydroxocobolamin (500mcg), a unique form of Vitamin B12 that offers a longer lasting effect than the cyanocobolamin form. Vitamin B12 is needed for normal fatty acid and DNA synthesis. It is essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and the synthesis of molecules involved in the production of energy. Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in fatigue, cognitive impairment, neuropathies and sleep disorders.
Chromium Picolinate (25mcg), “the blood sugar nutrient.” Promotes normal insulin function. May help metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle and convert sugar into energy. It helps to overcome cravings and levels out the highs and lows associated with a high carbohydrate diet. Chromium supports the conversion of food to energy and increases metabolic rate.
L-Carnitine (25mg) assists in the transport of fat through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria within the cell, where the fats are oxidized, resulting in the production of cellular energy (ATP). L-Carnitine accelerates the rate of ketone production which has both a protein sparing effect and appetite suppressing effect.
