Lipotropic agents are a class of substances (of which choline, inositol and methionine… are among the most effective) that play an important role in the body’s control of fat. Through their involvement in lipid/fat metabolism, Lipotropics help maintain a healthy liver. The liver plays a major role in human metabolism and has a number of important functions, including glycogen storage, plasma protein synthesis and detoxification. The liver also produces bile, a compound which aids in digestion and the breakdown of lipids (fats). Lipotropic injections include a combination of important amino acids and vitamins.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is important for the normal functioning of the nervous system and for the formation of blood. It is involved in the metabolism of most cells of the body, especially affecting DNA synthesis & regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Many medical conditions /illness/ substance dependencies as well as normal aging can lead to a B12 deficiency.
The 11 members of what’s known as the vitamin B complex are critical nutrients for all things mind-related: mood, memory, even migraines can benefit from the B’s. In the right amounts, the B’s can quell anxiety, lift depression, ease PMS, and boost your energy.
Choline & Inositol are natural co-enzymes required for the proper metabolism of fats, & have the ability to remove fat from the liver. Choline’s function in fat metabolism is related to its role in bile production. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver, where they can block normal metabolic functions leading to weight gain. Choline and inositol are also necessary for normal nerve and brain function.
Choline is a fat emulsifier which aids in emulsifying cholesterol so that it does not settle on arterial walls. Choline works well with inositol to utilize fats and cholesterol. The body can produce choline, with the help of vitamin B12, folic acid and methionine. Natural choline production however, may not always be adequate to meet daily needs. Studies show that diets deficient in choline lead to undesirable changes to liver, kidney and brain functions.
Inositol metabolizes fats & cholesterol and aids in transporting fat in the blood system. Thus, inositol is an aid in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels. It is a member of B-Complex group and is a lipotropic agent. A lack of inositol has been shown to produce an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver.
Methionine has Lipotropic properties similar to those of choline. Two other important amino acids (taurine and cysteine ) depend on adequate levels of methionine for their biosynthesis in the body. Methionine is one of the nutrients required during the body’s manufacture of choline and a deficiency of this amino acid will adversely affect fat metabolism. Indeed, Methionine is a lipotropic amino acid which reduces fat and aids in lowering cholesterol. It can be substituted for choline, which aids in reducing liver fat and detoxifies amines, which are by-products of protein metabolism. A deficiency may lead to fatty degeneration and cirrhosis of the liver.
