More commonly referred to as MIC, Methionine, Inositol and Choline are lipotropic agents that support liver function and promote the excretion of fat. Together, these three lipotropic compounds aid the body in the mobilization and elimination of excess fat deposits.
Methionine is a lipotropic amino acid that is most commonly found in meat, fish and dairy products. It is also found in some fruits and vegetables, but not as abundantly. It:
- Prevents excess fat build-up in the liver and the body
- Aids in the lowering of cholesterol
- Plays a vital role in the synthesis of other amino acids needed by the body
Inositol is a coenzyme that is commonly found in fruits, beans, grains and nuts. It:
- Metabolizes fats and cholesterol
- Aids in transporting body fats and cholesterol in blood vessels
- Participates in the action of serotonin
Choline is a coenzyme that is most commonly found in sunflower seeds, meats, fish, eggs and various green vegetables. It:
- Aids in emulsifying cholesterol
- Works with Methionine to detoxify amines, which are the byproducts of protein metabolism
- Supports the health of the liver, particularly in preventing fats from becoming trapped in the liver and blocking normal metabolic functions
In addition to the benefits of Methionine, Inositol and Choline, MIC also provides B-6 and B-12 vitamins for optimal results.
Warning: Methionine is a sulfur containing proteinogenic amino acid. Clients with a sulfa allergy should not take this vitamin combination.
