Suggested Use: 1-2 capsules with each meal.
What Is It?
Lipotropic Detox promotes the breakdown of fats in the liver, allowing for healthy bile flow and toxin metabolism. The nutrients in this formula also support methylation reactions for broad cellular and biological support.*
Uses For Lipotropic Detox
Hepatic Function: The lipotropic agents in this formula, choline, betaine, methionine, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and folic acid (Metafolin® L-5-MTHF), support healthy hepatic fat metabolism and bile flow. Efficient processing and breakdown of fats in the liver maintains healthy overall liver function and detoxification. These nutritional factors are also highly recognized for their ability to maintain healthy homocysteine metabolism. Taurine, curcumin, silymarin and artichoke support healthy bile flow, gene expression and the body’s normal toxin metabolism.*
Cellular Health: As methyl donors, choline, betaine, methionine, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and folic acid (Metafolin® L-5-MTHF) are critical for methylation, a widespread biochemical process in the body that involves transferring a methyl group to another compound. Methylation of DNA supports healthy DNA integrity and stability, important for liver, colon and overall cell health. Folic acid is provided in this formula as Metafolin®, the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin® is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5- MTHF is the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food. Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or genetic variations.*

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Trimethylglycine and turmeric can cause GI upset, including nausea or diarrhea. Artichoke and curcumin should be used with caution in patients with bile duct obstruction.
