LIPO-BC Injection

Lipotropic nutrients are compounds that promote the flow of fat and bile to and from the liver. In essence, they produce a "decongesting" effect on the liver and promote improved liver function and fat metabolism.

Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine and cystine are others) and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent (others are inositol and choline) to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release.
Methionine works as an antioxidant (free radical deactivator) through conversion to L-cystine to help neutralize toxins.

Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the vitamin B complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

Choline is considered one of the B-Complex vitamins. as well as a lipotropic nutrient. It is present in the body of all living cells and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin. Choline appears to be associated with utilization of fats and cholesterol in the body. It prevents fats from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats into the cells. It is essential for the health of the liver and kidneys.
