Our unique formula contains:
Choline: This is a B-complex vitamin. It supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of waste products within the body. Choline is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body. Deficiency of this vitamin can lead to cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis).
Methionine: This is an amino acid which is important for many bodily functions. It prevents excess fat buildup in the liver and the body. It works with Choline to detoxify amines which are the by-products of protein metabolism. It acts as a catalyst for Choline and Inositol, opening up their function. Along with Choline, it aids in reducing liver fat and protects the kidneys.
Inositol: This is a B-complex vitamin. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It assists in breaking down fats within the body. Deficiency of Inositol can lead to hair loss. Caffeine may cause depletion of Inositol.
Vitamin B12:This is a B-complex vitamin. It can increase your energy level as well as help to prevent fatigue. It can also assist in the weight loss process by suppressing your appetite. The primary functions of this vitamin are the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.
Vitamin B6: This is another one of the B-complex vitamins. It is involved in protein and red blood cell metabolism, helps the nervous system function efficiently, as well as involved in other processes in the body. It also helps to maintain your blood glucose level within a normal range. When you are dieting, and your caloric intake level decreases, your body needs B6 to help convert the stored carbohydrates or other nutrients to glucose. Thus, in effect, it assists with weight loss.
