Body Fat Reducers:
Choline, Inositol, Methionine (Lipotropic Factors):
The lipotropic nutrients, Choline, Inositol, Methionine and Betaine HCL are nutritional factors which breakdown (emulsify) fats. They actually help the liver to create lecithin, which is a primary lipotropic agent in the body. Choline has been clinically demonstrated to protect the liver from alcohol damage in addition to promoting healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range. Inositol and Methionine play a synergistic role with Choline for fat metabolism.
Betaine HCL is also classified as a lipotropic agent (because of its metyl group donating ability like methionine) but it is also a stomach acidifier.
Lipotropic Factors can aid in preventing the excessive accumulation of fat in the liver. Fatty deposits in the liver will inhibit the ability of the liver to function properly. One of the functions of the liver is the cleansing or filtering the blood of toxins and manufacturing lecithin to emulsify blood fats. Another benefit of the Lipotropic factors is that by creating lecithin, they can help break down dietary fats (absorbed into the bloodstream) into their component fatty acids. When dietary fats are completely broken down into fatty acids, they are more likely to be used as a source of energy fuel and less likely to be stored as body fat.
This non-essential amino acid is part of a mechanism that utilizes stores fat as an energy source. This amino acid has applications for reducing body fat, improving cardiovascular health (by helping improve fatty acid metabolism in the heart, promoting healthy levels of good HDL cholesterol, triglycerides already within a normal range), and helping support energy levels. L-Carnitine’s most popular application is its fat reducing properties. L-Carnitine is the perfect choice for individuals looking to promote fat burning without the use of any type of stimulants. L-Carnitine works by transporting fat into the muscle cells where it can then be burned as a source of energy fuel.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is an essential fatty acid that has been shown to have many health benefits, including the ability to reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass. It has also been shown to increase immune function and decrease inflammation. Found mostly in beef and dairy products many people are often deficient in this important essential fatty acid. The Tonalin TM form of CLA is the patented form of Conjugated Linoleic Acid shown in clinical trials to enhance lean muscle mass and reduce body fat in as little as 3 months. This is an important distinction when considering which brand of CLA to purchase to see maximum results.
Juniper Berries, Uva Ursi, Watermelon Seed, Juniper Berry Extracts, Horsetail Herb, Cubeb, Goldenrod Herb, Cranberry, Shave Grass, Buchu Leaves, Corn Silk, Parsley:
These herbs have an extensive history of use to aid in promoting a healthy balance of fluids in body tissues. Excessive fluids stored in the tissues can add to body weight and make our clothes feel tight. In combination with a proper diet and exercise, herbal diuretics can provide a complete program for promoting a healthy balance of tissue fluids.
Magnolia Bark :
Stress could cause the body to over produce Cortisol which may cause the body to store fat in the midsection. Magnolia Bark has been shown to reduce Cortisol production which may help reduce Cortisol related Weight Gain.
