Our amino acid blend contains glutamine, ornithine,
arginine, lysine, citrulline, and carnitine. Amino acids are the
all important building blocks of proteins. Most people think
of “protein” simply as a nutrient used by the body to build
muscle. As important as this is, in reality, proteins do much
more than that. Proteins are the “workhorses” of the entire
body, forming the support structure of our cells (keratin in
hair) and tissues (collagen), synthesizing bacterial and viral
killing “weapons,” catalyzing essential metabolic activities
(enzymes), and, yes, forming the “movement” proteins in
muscle. Amino acid supplementation helps the body to
create the tools necessary for numerous bodily functions.
Vitamin B12, also known by its various chemical forms of hydroxocobalamin, methylcobalamin, or cyanocobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is needed for DNA synthesis, red blood cell and nervous tissue development, and energy production through carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Vitamin B12 can also help regulate mood and appetite, key factors associated with overeating. While vitamin B12 is readily found in meat and dairy products, its absorption can be impaired by its lack of availability (as in the case of vegetarians) or in those with various gastrointestinal conditions (i.e. celiac/gluten insensitivity, gastric bypass surgery, Crohn’s disease, etc.). Vitamin B12 deficiencies can manifest as a host of symptoms including mood disturbances, muscle weakness, unsteady gait, vision problems, and even dementia.
MICC stands for Methionine, Inositol, Choline, and Cyanocobalamin. These lipotropic, or “fat burning” compounds work together to break down fatty tissue where it collects throughout the body. The nutrients of this powerful “fat burning” combination has been studied for their roles in hunger suppression, carbohydrate/fat/protein metabolism, serum cholesterol reduction, energy production, and even as an antidepressant treatment. When given in combination as an injection, they all work synergistically to amplify the effects of each other.
Comprised of sodium chloride, sodium lactate, potassium
chloride, calcium chloride, and water this combination of
electrolytes is designed to closely match the intrinsic
properties of the fluid of your cells. This medical grade solution is commonly used for volume repletion and resuscitation in the healthcare setting.
