INGREDIENT LISTTap an ingredient for more info.
Vitamin B complex refers to a broad group of separate, water-soluble nutrients: B-1 (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin), B-5 (pantothenic acid), B-6, B-12, biotin, folic acid, choline, and inositol. We use a blend of these nutrients which serve as an excellent foundation. Antibiotics such as sulfa drugs and tetracycline can interfere with the production and absorption of B vitamins. If you are taking these medications, you may need to increase your intake of these nutrients. Take B vitamins during the day, rather than at night, as they can be too stimulating.
Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. It also helps to maintain healthy homocysteine levels, and arterial function supports healthy cholesterol levels and blood vessel dilation and is involved in DNA synthesis. It also plays a vital role in energy production. Only bacteria are capable of synthesizing B12, and as such, it is found almost entirely in animal food products due to animal-bacteria symbiosis.
Choline is a member of the B vitamin family. It is critical for brain and neural tube development in utero and maintains adult brain health by supporting neurotransmitter function. Lecithin, an essential component of cell membranes, (particularly liver cells) is comprised of both choline and inositol. Choline is easily destroyed by estrogen, alcohol, antibiotics, and heat.
Inositol is a member of the B vitamin family. It is a central system tranquilizer and can ease premenstrual anxiety and irritability. Lecithin, an essential component of cell membranes, (particularly liver cells) is comprised of choline and inositol. Although your body stores large amounts of inositol, caffeine can deplete these stores.
Methionine is an amino acid with powerful detoxifying properties, including ridding the body of heavy metals such as mercury and lead. It is also a potent antioxidant, maintains the body's reserves of glutathione peroxidase (another powerful antioxidant), and promotes the production of lecithin, a significant component of liver cell membranes.
THE NITTY GRITTYB vitamins play an important role in weight loss and weight maintenance. B complex in particular works to control appetite and support carb, protein, and fat metabolism. Vitamin B12 not only supports energy production, which gives you the stamina to get in those fat-busting workouts, but B12 deficiency has been linked to obesity. In one study, researchers found that, in obese children, a decrease in B12 levels was associated with an increase in BMI scores.1 This finding was supported by a study of nearly 1,000 adults, where low B12 levels were associated with increased obesity and overweight rates, as well as increased BMI scores.2 Choline and inositol are members of the vitamin B family that are also the building blocks of lecithin. Lecithin is one of the most important nutrients for the liver. In addition to breaking down fat, it is also a potent detoxifier, working to metabolize and remove various pollutants, alcohol, viruses, drugs, and other toxins from the body. This is critical, as detoxification plays a significant role in weight loss. Toxicity compromises the digestion and elimination process. When your body is exposed to these toxins, and cannot eliminate them, it stores them in your fat cells to protect your other tissues. The cumulative effect of toxins can alter metabolism, resulting in weight gain. The best way to stop this cycle is with detoxification. In addition to lecithin, methionine is another powerful detoxifier with a long list of functions. Not only does this amino acid remove heavy metals, but it also maintains your body's reserves of glutathione peroxidase - a powerful antioxidant - and promotes the body's production of lecithin. The combination of energy-boosting, BMI-stabilizing B vitamins with the detox power of choline, inositol, and methionine make Calorie Crusher powerful non-stimulatory support for anyone looking to lose or maintain weight loss.
