What are some of the important functions of the individual Lipotropic?

Choline & Inositol are co-enzymes that are required for the proper metabolism of fats, and have the ability to remove fat from the liver. 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.

Choline: Metabolizes fat. Deficiency of choline can lead to cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). It is being used today for ailments such as gall bladder trouble, diabetes, Muscular Dystrophy, glaucoma, senility and memory problems (forgetfulness). Choline detoxifies amines that are the by-products of protein metabolism.

Inositol: Deficiency of inositol can lead to hair loss. It works with Vitamin E to facilitate its actions in the treatment of Muscular Dystrophy. It is used in nerve and muscle disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Palsy. Caffeine may cause depletion of inositol.

Methionine: 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 kidney.
