The Lipotropic B-Complex Formula contains 8 powerful B-Vitamins to help melt fat and boost energy. Lipotropic Agents are a class of substances that include Choline and Inositol which play a very 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).
Supplementor's Lipotropic B Complex includes a combination of the following important vitamins:
B5 (pantothenic acid)
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine)
Thiamin is also known as vitamin Bl. The water-soluble vitamin that is required for the proper metabolism of starch and sugar in order to provide energy to the body. Thiamin also plays an integral role in nerve function. B-l also helps the heart and other muscles function properly.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Riboflavin is mainly involved in energy metabolism and helps the thyroid function properly. Vitamin B2 aids in weight loss by releasing the unused energy in the body and preventing unused energy from turning into fat. Vitamin B2 is crucial for the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. People who exercise daily are actually losing B2 by using up their supply of the vitamin.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
B3 support healthy carbohydrate metabolism. The water-soluble vitamin Niacin is essential for the body to convert carbohydrates, fat and alcohol into energy. Vitamin B3 aids in the normal maintenance of thyroid hormone production. It helps maintain skin health and supports the normal function of the nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. B5 is also a component of the glucose tolerance factor which is released every time your blood sugar rises. Niacin is usually not lost during the cooking process, unlike most other B group vitamins. The severe lack of which can a potential contributing factor towards obesity.
Vitamin B4 (Choline)
Sometimes referred to as Vitamin B4, choline is a member of the B-complex family also known as Adenine, (Although not officially deemed a Vitamin per the FDA definition, make no mistake about it) is an essential and vital nutrient for our health. Vitamin B4 is also one of the water-soluble vitamins that aids in weight loss. This nutrient is a fat emulsifier that works with the nutrient inositol. Choline and inositol use the cholesterol and fats in the body to prevent weight gain and promote weight loss. Without choline, the excess fats that are digested get trapped in the liver and block fat metabolism which leads to weight gain. Foods that contain choline should be included in daily meals in order to get rid of the excess fats gained from eating fatty foods.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Vitamin B5 plays an important role in weight loss. Vitamin B5 is involved in energy production and helps to control fat metabolism. Pantothenic acid is needed to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, fats and alcohol as well as produce red blood cells and steroid hormones. Vitamin B5 also aids in digestion and helps break down fat and carbohydrates, thus giving more energy and boosting one's metabolism, which also helps in weight loss.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Pyridoxine the water-soluble vitamin plays an integral role in the metabolism of fats, particularly fatty acids which are unsaturated and help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy. Vitamin B6 helps with the regulation and production of the thyroid. B6 is also required for protein and carbohydrate metabolism. Vitamin B6 helps the pancreas produce enzymes that aid indigestion. Proper digestion will make one feel full longer, thus resulting in weight loss.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin)
Vitamin B7 (biotin) is needed for energy metabolism, fat synthesis, amino acid metabolism and glycogen synthesis. Biotin improves blood-sugar control. People who exercise often have an increased need for biotin for several reasons: Increased metabolism resulting in the loss of this vitamin in urine or sweat, need for tissue repair and maintenance.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
Methylcobalamin the most bio-available form of Vitamin B12, i.e. it is the most readily absorbed. Further to this research has shown that it remains in the body for a longer period of time and at higher levels than Cyanocobalamin, which means that your body is supplied with vitamin B12 for longer if you use Methylcobalamin than if you use Cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is used primarily in your liver, brain and nervous system, in fact methylcobalamin is the specific form of B12 needed for nervous system health.
