Many of the ingredients selected for this product have been used for centuries in Asia and many have been tested. The proprietary blend of whole food, herbs, herbal and whole food extracts, and essential fatty acids is broad and is supported by the vitamins, minerals, lipotropic factors and amino acids to synergistically provide support in the most bioavailable form. Lipotropics (Choline, Inositol, Methionine and Betaine) aid the body in fat metabolism through the liver, digesting proteins, detoxifying waste, and converting fat into energy. The lipotropic support factors aid in sugar metabolism; fat burning processes; and protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism, hormone and cholesterol synthesis. In addition to acting as a lipotropic, Methionine is a sulfur donating amino acid that builds protein, aids in muscle building and energy formation.
