INGREDIENTS & FUNCTION
B-1 (Thiamine) helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system and contributes to optimizing the body’s ability to metabolize fat and protein.
B-2 (Riboflavin) helps prevent headaches and metabolize fats and carbohydrates.
B-3 (Niacinamide) helps release energy from nutrients. It can reduce cholesterol and prevent and treat arteriosclerosis, among other benefits.
B-5 (D-Pantothenol) the stable form of panthotenic acid involved in a number of biological reactions, including the production of energy, the synthesis of heme and acetylcholine, and the catabolism and synthesis of fatty acids, phospholipids, steroid hormones, and amino acids.
B-6 Pyroxidine a vital part of the body’s enzyme system, the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, and the normal function of the nervous and immune systems. The essential amino acid tryptophan also depends on pyroxidine for its utilization.
B-12 Methylcobalmin plays an important role in red blood cells, prevention and treatment of anema, methylation reactions, and immune system regulation.
Choline an essential nutrient required by the body to keep cell membranes healthy and help prevent gallstones. It is used by the kidneys to maintain water balance and by the liver as a source of methyl groups for methionine formation. It also acts as a precursor to other amino acids involved in memory and polymers that help transport lipids from the liver.
Chromium used for improving blood sugar control in people with pre-diabetes, diabetes, and high blood sugar due to taking steroids. It is also used for depression, poly-cystic ovary syndrome, lowering “bad” cholesterol, and raising “good: cholesterol in people taking beta blockers.
Inositol plays an important part in the health of cell membranes, especially the specialized cells in the brain, bone marrow, eyes and intestines. It also acts as a lipotropic, which converts fats into other useful products and helps regulate blood sugar.
L-Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of triglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavy exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned.
L-Carnitine allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, L-Carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable source.
Methionine assists is breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries. It can be converted into other amino acids that help in detoxifying the liver.
