  • helps regulate immune system health & antioxidant function
  • helps lower blood sugar levels & build insulin resistance
  • may enhance exercise performance by reducing fatigue, increasing fat burning, & decreasing muscle damage
  • helps regulate muscle contractions

Biotin


forms fatty acids & glucose

  • helps metabolize carbohydrates & amino acids
  • helps break down fat in the body

Lysine


essential amino acid and crucial building block for protein

  • important for normal growth & production of new muscle (used to form carnitine)

  • 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

Glutathione**


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**


(methylcobalamin/hydroxocobalamin): 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

L-carnitine


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

AbFab


(MIC, hydroxocobalamin, 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
  • hydroxocobalamin: a form of vitamin B-12
  • helps the body use fat & carbohydrates for energy
  • makes new protein
  • important for normal blood, cells, & nerve function
