Polyunsaturated Phosphatidylcholine is a liquid form of Lecithin, which is an enzyme naturally
produced in our body. It is the major component of all cell membranes and Lipoproteins that
circulate in the blood. It plays an important role in intra and extra cellular Lipid metabolism.
Phosphatidylcholine facilitates the emulsification of fat enabling the absorption and transportation of fat. After administration, phosphatidylcholine induces an enzymatic reaction, which leads to the dissolution of fat by producing an emulsion of nano sized monoglycerides that are transported into the liver, metabolised by beta-oxidation and finally excreted from the body.
L-Carnitine exists naturally in the body and is an essential co-factor of Fatty Acid metabolism of lipids. The best known function of L-Carnitine is its essential role in transporting long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria for beta-oxidation, thus being of fundamental importance in lipid
catabolism (break down) and energy production. Besides this main action, L-Carnitine has other physiological roles, namely detoxification of non metabolisable Acyl residues, general buffering of the acyl-CoA to CoA ratio, and the shuttling of the Acyl groups of Acyl-CoAs, such as peroxisomes, cytosol and mitochondria. All these functions are mediated by a group of Carnitine Acyltransferases, enzymes specific for the Acyl chain lengths. L-Carnitine and its esters protect cells from oxidative damage both by inhibiting free radical propagation and by contributing to repair the oxidized membrane phospholipids. Since fat burning is such a major source of muscular energy, deficiencies in L-Carnitine are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness.
L-Carnitine represents a precious aid in the treatment of Cellulitis, a condition where an alteration of the microcirculation affects the normal functionality of Adipocytes, which start to synthesise and accumulate excessive amounts of Triglycerides.
The action of L-Carnitine is particularly valuable since it not only promotes lipid catabolism, but also helps in detoxifying and regenerating cells, restoring the physiological functionality of the dermis.
