Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Lipotrepein was one of the first formulas in the Thorne line. A time-tested lipotropic formula, it has consistently been a best seller. Historically, “lipotropic” has been a term applied to substances that prevent the accumulation of fat in the liver and improve lipid metabolism. This term has been expanded to include substances that increase bile output (cholagogues). Numerous nutrients and botanicals are capable of lipotropic activity.

    As a precursor to phosphatidylcholine and glycine and their derivatives – betaine, dimethylglycine, and serine – choline is a premier lipotropic. Choline deficiency is a well-documented cause of fatty liver. Choline emulsifies lipids and provides the substrate for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis, promoting repair of damaged hepatic cell membranes.

    B12 and methionine provide methyl groups for numerous metabolic pathways, including synthesis of the detoxification molecules cysteine and glutathione. Phosphatidylcholine is also dependent on methyl groups provided by these nutrients.

    Vitamin B6 and magnesium are essential cofactors in hundreds of biochemical reactions, many of which take place in the liver. Vitamin B6 is provided in its active form, pyridoxal 5’-phosphate, because a poorly functioning liver may not convert inactive forms to this key cofactor.

    Gambir is an excellent source of catechin, a flavonoid with potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties. Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale), beet leaf (Beta vulgaris), black radish (Raphanus sativa niger), and celandine (Chelidonium majus) are botanicals that have been used traditionally to increase bile flow and improve overall liver function.
