It is sometimes referred to as vitamin B5. Pantothenic acid is involved in a number of biological reactions, including the production of energy, the catabolism of fatty acids and amino acids, the synthesis of fatty acids, phospholipids, sphingolipids, cholesterol and steroid hormones, and the synthesis of MIC or The popular name: Lipotropics – (simply means Fat home and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It also appears to be Burning) are a combination of B-Complex and essential and involved in the regulation of gene expression and in signal transduction. Roger J. Williams, the discoverer of Pantothenic acid non-essential amino acids, some of which are not produced by and a scientist who pioneered the use of nutrients for the prevention the body or not easily obtained from current food sources. MIC and treatment of disease, thought that Pantothenic acid might be or Lipotropic shots/injections are used in conjunction with helpful in the management of certain medical disorders, such as many different diet plans to aid in losing weight or weight-loss rheumatoid arthritis. programs. Pyroxidine - or B6 - Pyroxidine is a vital part of the enzyme system and very important to the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Adequate amounts of product Lipotonix Plus: riboflavin and niacin are required in the diet for Pyroxidine to be used nutritionally. B-12 is a vitamin which is important for the normal functioning of the Methionine (the M in MIC): it assists in the breakdown of fats and brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid since it can be converted to cytosine, which is a precursor to synthesis and energy production. gluthione, which is of prime importance in detoxifying the liver. L-Carnitine: boosts energy by stimulating the body's burning of Inositol (the I in MIC): helps to maintain proper electrical energy triglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane. It also acts as a liver for heavier exertion. lipotropic which converts fats into other useful products. Inositol helps establish healthy cell membranes, which facilitate nerve impulses. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. Choline (the C in MIC) - aCholine assists in controlling your weight L-Carnitine allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, as well as cholesterol levels, keeping cell membranes healthy and in and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to preventing gallstones. It is also most useful in the maintenance of the the muscles, Carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable nervous system, assisting memory and learning, and may help to fight energy source.

Procaine – a local agent used in the product to deter any patient discomfort. Choline is the major precursor of betaine, and it is used by the kidneys to maintain water balance and by the liver as a source of methyl- groups for methionine formation. It is also used to produce the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It assists in nerve impulse transmission, gallbladder regulation, liver functions and lecithin production. The liver from certain types of damage, it may help lower cholesterol Dosing Protocol of Lipotonix Plus 1. Dosed 2ml. q-week – once a week – with a min. of 5 days between injections. 2.
