LipotropiX supports normal liver function by providing a specialized liver formula.
What LipotropiX is best for:
LipotropiX may be used for the following:
- Supports Normal Fat Digestion and Metabolism
- Supports Normal Blood Levels of Cholesterol and Triglycerides
- Supports Normal Synthesis of Bile in the Liver
- Supports Normal Bile Flow
- Supports Normal Balance Among Bile Components
- Supports Normal Elimination of Bodily Waste
How LipotropiX works:
Greater Celandine stimulates production of bile and pancreatic digestive enzymes. Animal and in vitro studies have shown this herb can relieve gallbladder spasms and stimulate a sluggish gallbladder. Two clinical trials, (including one double-blind, placebo-controlled), demonstrated the effectiveness of greater celandine extract in reducing the symptoms of indigestion such as fullness, cramping, nausea, etc.
Dandelion, used medicinally as far back as the tenth and eleventh centuries, today among other uses is employed for indigestion, bile stimulation and as a general stimulant, especially for kidney and liver disorders. Dandelion may be hepatochemoprotective, may increase antioxidant liver enzymes, reduce lipid peroxidation and normalize blood lipid levels.
Guggul Extract contains guggulsterone, a selective modulator of a particular bile acid receptor called (Farnesoid X receptor(FXR). Guggul's hypolipidemic effect possibly results from expression of the bile salt export pump through FXR-mediated antagonism and/or transactivation through the AP-1 element.
Choline is involved in cholesterol transport, mobilizing and removing excess fat from the liver. It is produced in the liver through methylation of phosphatidylethanolamine. Choline is sometimes used as a hepatoprotectant. Taurine, synthesized in the body from methionine and cysteine is considered (conditionally essential. It is required for efficient fat absorption and conjugation of bile acids to solubilize cholesterol thereby increasing its excretion.
Taurine is used to protect the liver and to maintain healthy lipid levels. Inositol Hexanicotinate is believed to decrease the mobilization of free fatty acids (especially nocturnal ) and inhibit cholesterol synthesis in the liver. Once metabolized, the inositol in this compound is freed up and may work synergistically with other nutrients in LipotropiX such as choline and methionine to support healthy blood lipid levels and to minimize the build up of fats in the liver.
Methionine, a sulfur-containing essential amino acid, is one of the body's most important methyl donors, is used for liver support, especially to prevent accumulation of fat in the liver
