Lipotropic compounds help the body break down fatty acids while metabolic functions are being carried out. When concentrated vitamin B12 is added to lipotropic mixtures, there is more energy available for exercise and further reduction of fatty acids. There are three lipotropic compounds that are involved in this process.
Choline, Methionine, and Inositol
Choline is the primary lipotropic responsible for the burning of fat in the human body, while methionine and inositol play supportive roles. Choline is an amino acid that aids with metabolism of fats and keep the arteries from getting clogged. It also supports the health of the liver by reducing the chance of fatty deposits forming in it.
Methionine is another amino acid that is essential to proper functioning of the human body. It helps prevent liver damage in a variety of ways. This is why it is used as a treatment for acetaminophen poisoning by overdose. It keeps the liver from being damaged while the breakdown of acetaminophen is occurring.
Inositol is a substance that is similar to a vitamin which has been taken as a treatment for health problems associated with diabetes. The main reason it’s also used as a treatment for metabolic syndrome is its ability to improve cholesterol levels by helping speed up metabolism.
When these three lipotropic properties are blended together they provide a huge supply of energy and speed up the metabolic process enough to encourage weight loss.
B12 is Useful for Weight Loss
It’s always best to ingest vitamins and minerals the most natural way, which is through healthy food and drinks. The B vitamins can be found in foods like beef, eggs, poultry, dairy products and fish. They include B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7 and B12 along with folic acid. However, the addition of B12 alone provides added benefits to the lipotropic mixture.
The reasons for the addition of B12 is the improvement of mood and quick energy it can provide our clients. B12 as a supplement is often prescribed by doctors treating their patients for a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia. It’s this type of anemia that is the most associated with fatigue.
