The injections you will receive each week include the following naturally-occurring vitamins and amino acids:
1. Methionine - an antioxidant amino acid that neutralizes free radicals. It aids in breaking down fat, lowering cholesterol, removing heavy metals from the body, and helps with digestion. It is one of the important amino acids that increases energy and lean muscle mass.
2. Inositol - a vitamin that is vital for metabolism of fat and cholesterol and aids in their transport in blood vessels. It helps in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels. A deficiency in inositol has been shown to produce an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver. It prevents hardening of the arteries and it is also been shown to help in the treatment of depression and anxiety.
3. Choline - Choline aids in emulsifying cholesterol. It works well with methionine to detoxify amines which are the by-products of protein metabolism. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver, where they block normal metabolic functions. It plays a major role in cardiovascular health, and in addition to minimizing excess fat in the liver, it aids in hormone production.
4. Vitamin B12 - regulates the formation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron, preventing anemia. It is an important component of the body system because it is required for proper digestion, absorption and synthesis of foods, protein synthesis, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
