  • Crucial nutrient that promotes healthy hair, skin, nails, eyes, & liver


Essential amino acid and crucial building block for protein

  • Important for normal growth & production of new muscle (used to form carnitine)
  • Helps transport fats across cells to be burned for energy
  • May reduce duration & frequency of cold sores
  • May help reduce feelings of anxiety & reduce levels of stress hormones (cortisol)
  • May aid in calcium absorption & decrease calcium buildup in blood vessels
  • Essential for formation of collagen which may expedite wound healing & reduce recovery time

Magnesium Chloride

Supports many chemical reactions in the body

  • Helps convert food into energy
  • Helps create new proteins from amino acids
  • Helps create/repair DNA & RNA
  • Part of normal contraction/relaxation of muscles
  • Helps regulate neurotransmitters which send messages throughout the brain & nervous system
  • May enhance exercise performance by moving blood sugar into muscles & disposing of lactate
  • May decrease symptoms of depression
  • May help decrease blood sugar & improve insulin resistance
  • May help lower blood pressure
  • May help fight against inflammation
  • May provide relief from migraines


Made up of 3 amino acids (glutamine, glycine, & cysteine)

  • Levels decrease as a result of aging, stress & toxin exposure
  • Acts as an important antioxidant, helps combat free radicals (molecules that can damage the body's cells) which reduce oxidative stress
  • Helps remove pollutant and drugs as well as toxins that the body naturally produces
  • Supports liver health by removing toxins and free radicals which can contribute to liver cell death
  • May improve insulin resistance
  • Promotes a balanced inflammatory response

Vitamin B-12

Helps the body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein

  • Helps with red blood cell formation and anemia prevention
  • May support bone health and prevent osteoporosis
  • Key to a healthy pregnancy (important for prevention of brain and spinal cord birth defects)
  • May improve mood and symptoms of depression (necessary for the production of serotonin which is responsible for regulating mood)
  • May prevent brain atrophy and memory loss
  • May provide energy boost
  • May improve heart health
  • Supports healthy hair, skin, and nails


Plays a crucial role in production of energy by transporting fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria (mitochondria act as engines within the cells, burning fats to create usable energy)

  • Used for weight loss
  • May improve exercise recovery
  • Increases oxygen supply to muscles
  • May improve stamina by increasing blood flow and nitric oxide production therefore delaying discomfort and reducing fatigue
  • May reduce muscle soreness
  • Increase production of red blood cells which transport oxygen throughout the body


(MIC, B-12, pyridoxine): Lipostat Plus

  • MIC (methionine, inositol, & choline): lipotropic agents which help in the breakdown of fat during metabolism in the body
  • Methionine: one of the 8 essential amino acids that cannot be made in the body
  • Helps the body process & eliminate fat
  • Provides additional detox of the liver and helps remove heavy metals
  • Inositol:  type of carbohydrate
  • Promotes tissue healing
  • Decreases insulin resistance
  • Helps the liver break down fats in the body & choline: an essential nutrient
  • Required in cell signaling functions
  • B-12: see above
  • Helps the body use fat & carbohydrates for energy
  • Makes new protein
  • Important for normal blood, cells, & nerve function
  • Pyridoxine: part of the vitamin B6 group
  • Required for the proper function of sugars, fats, & proteins in the body
  • Crucial for adequate growth & development of brain, nerves, skin, and many other parts of the body

AbFab Plus

(MIC, pyridoxine, L-carnitine, B-12, thiamine, riboflavin): Lip-Mino Mix (shot only - no IV boost)

  • MIC (methionine, inositol, & choline): see above
  • Pyridoxine: see vitamin B6 above
  • L-Carnitine: see above
  • B-12: see above
  • Thiamine: see vitamin B1 above
  • Riboflavin: see vitamin B2 above

Amino Blend

(Glutamine, Ornithine, Arginine, Lysine, Citrulline, Levocarnitine):  essential amino acids that are not produced in the body

  • Glutamine: a naturally-occurring amino acid in the body
  • Increases body's capacity to secrete human growth hormone (HGH) which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth
  • Supports protein metabolism, cell volumizing and prevents muscle breakdown
  • May help GI function & immune system especially in times of stress
  • Ornithine: a naturally-occurring amino acid in the body
  • May improve athletic performance by increasing levels of hormones that increase muscle size
  • Arginine: an amino acid necessary for the body to make proteins
  • Transformed by the body into nitric oxide, which causes the blood vessels to widen for improved blood flow
  • Stimulates release of growth hormone & insulin
  • Lysine: see above
  • Citrulline:  a naturally-occurring amino acid in the body
  • Transformed by the body into arginine & nitric oxide, which results in dilation of blood vessels to improve blood flow & decrease blood pressure
  • Levocarnitine: see L-carnitine above

Calcium Chloride

Used to help replenish depleted levels of calcium in the body which may cause muscle spasms/cramps & muscle weakness
