M.I.C. = Methionine, Inositol, and Choline
- Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body.
- Inositol is a nutrient belonging to the B Vitamin complex and is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It also participates in the action of serotonin
- Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
- Thiamine – B1: helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system.
- Riboflavin – B2: an easily absorbed micronutrient. It plays a key role in energy metabolism, the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, ketone bodies (a vital source of energy during fasting), and proteins.
- Niacinamide B3: assists in the functioning of the digestive system, skin, and nerves and is also important for the conversion of food to energy.
- Pyridoxine – B6: is needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein metabolism. It is also essential for red blood cell metabolism. The nervous and immune systems need vitamin B6 to function efficiently, and it is also needed for the conversion of tryptophan (an amino acid) to niacin(a vitamin)
- B12: is an energy booster and it is among the most important of all the B complex vitamins. The main functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. Helps with the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It also helps the growth of healthy blood cells, nerve cells, and proteins in the body. – Forms used: Cyano, Methyl, and Hydroxo
L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell.
