Methionine is an essential amino acid that acts both as a lipotrope, involved in breakdown of fat during metabolism, and an antioxidant, protecting the body from free radical damage obtained from toxic metals. Your body cannot produce this amino acid on its own and it must be obtained through methionine rich foods or through a supplement.
Inositol is a B vitamin and plays a role in nerve transmission and fat metabolism. Inositol works at the cellular level and is thought to prevent the formation of cancer and may even shrink pre-existing cancers. Inositol helps lower cholesterol levels.
Choline is a vitamin-like nutrient that helps export accumulating fats in the liver and helps prevent liver damage. It is needed for the synthesis of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter, which helps maintain cell membranes, transmit nerve impulses, process fat and cholesterol, and perform other tasks.
Pyridoxine (B6) is a water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin B6 is critical for protein metabolism, energy production, and normal nervous system function. It is involved in nearly 60 enzyme systems in the body, necessary for normal growth, red blood cell synthesis, and vitamin B12 absorption.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) is a vital water-soluble nutrient critical for maintaining normal functioning nerve cells and aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the building blocks for the genetic makeup of the body. Vitamin B12 is also referred to as the energy vitamin, since it will provide an energy boost after injection as well as increase metabolism. Vitamin B12 is used in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins, and is required for fatty acid synthesis.
The hormones utilized are believed to stimulate the hypothalamus, the “master control center” of the brain that regulates the metabolism (among other things), to release stores of “bad” fat into the bloodstream to be burned as energy. During this process, abnormally stored body fat, and the nutrients therein, are also released into the bloodstream providing sustenance to the body. This medication, in conjunction with a specifically structured very low calorie diet (VLCD), will assist the body in burning abnormal fat stores for fuel, releasing them from the body; thus causing significant weight loss; all this while helping preserve vital “good” fat and muscle.
