Lipotropic Factors


Our blood contains certain constituents known as lipotropic factors. In addition to playing important roles in the mobilization and utilization of dietary fats, lipotropic factors act as the bodyís natural emulsifiers, holding blood lipids in solution and resisting lipid deposition within the cardiovascular system.* Sufficient lipotropic factors can also keep homocystein levels in check to support cardiovascular health, including the health of the arterial walls and blood lipids.

The body is able to synthesize itís own lipotropic factors when given all the ingredients: choline, inositol, betaine, folic acid and B vitamins. These elements are key to the proper metabolism and elimination of homocysteine, a potent oxidant (something you donít want).*

Food Sources are diets that include:
  • B-complex Ė see Vitamin B
  • Choline from egg yolks, organ meats, soybeans, fish
  • Inositol from beans, brown rice, nuts, meat, whole grains

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • a complete formula including choline, inositol, betaine, folic acid and B vitamins
