Lipotropic Injection by definition is a substance which decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate/eat) within the liver.  This injection is made up of the following compounded nutrients:

  • Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino-acids and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body.  It is also helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue.
  • Inositol a nutrient belonging to the vitamin B complex.  It is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol also participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
  • Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
  • Vitamin B12 (Regular) is a B supplement that increases your energy level and the metabolism of every cell of the body. It also has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and the formation of blood. 
  • Pyridoxine (Vitamin B-6) assists in the balancing of sodium and potassium as well as promoting red blood cell production. It is linked to cardiovascular health. Pyridoxine may help balance hormonal changes in women and aid the immune system.
  • Dexpanthenol (Vitamin B-5) is quickly oxidized to Pantothenic acid and is essential to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, as well as for the synthesis of hormones and cholesterol.

 

Lipo-B Tablets are a combination of vitamins and other supplements that boosts energy levels, increases activity of nervous system, accelerates cell renewal, enhances red blood cell production, assists in stress management, improves concentration & memory, reduces toxic levels of homo-cysteine which is a contributing factor in heart disease and stroke.  The Lipo-B Tablets have some of the similar effects of the Lipotropic injection plus more, but in a pill form.

Each tablet contains:

  • Choline aids in emulsifying cholesterol so that it doesn’t settle on arterial walls. Choline helps to build cell membranes and facilitates the movement of fats and nutrients in and out of cells. It prevents accumulation of fats in the liver, and is essential to liver and kidney health.
  • Inositol, another lipotropic nutrient is an essential component of cell membrane phospholipids. Less inositol levels contribute to a fatty liver that is common in diabetes. Inositol is involved in the synthesis of phospholipids, which are essential to the digestion and absorption of fats, facilitating the uptake of fatty acid by the cells, Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol and aids in the re-distribution of body fat.
  • Biotin is one of these key elements that are necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Biotin is a co-enzyme that helps the body use glucose (the basic fuel of the body) and assists in the control of blood sugar levels. Biotin is made in our bodies by intestinal bacteria. Supplemental use of biotin may be useful in nausea, high blood cholesterol, nervous system disorders, memory loss and depression.
  • Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and Biotin participate in different aspects of energy production.
  • Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid is essential for normal body processes including the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins and the production of glucose. It assists in the break-down of fats and the production of cholesterol and certain hormones.
  • Vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism and breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
  • Vitamin B12 and folic acid facilitate the steps required for cell division, metabolic functions, energy production and immune response. Both participate in the conversion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy.
