Supplements Aid Fat Reduction

The use of specific supplements can significantly enhance the Zerona LaserLipo process.  The Zerona device creates a small opening in the protective membrane of the fat cell — it is through this opening that triglycerides (the fatty material inside the fat cell) are discharged from the fat cell. Using the laser to open a pore in the membrane of the fat cell is the single most important step for Zerona laser body contouring — there are no known supplements that can enhance this particular biological response.

However, once outside the cell, normal physiologic processes eliminate the discharged triglycerides. The overall process involves the fat cell, lymphatic system, blood system, and the liver.  Each of these systems may be enhanced with supplements or other influences that target specific functions.

For example, the lymphatic system transports the triglycerides to lymph nodes. Use of compression garments, massage and the use of ultrasonic treatments can facilitate this early process.  In addition, good hydration is especially important to ensure that the lymphatic system is functioning optimally.

Once the triglycerides are transported into the lymph nodes, the triglycerides are broken down into their fatty acid components.  Lymph node function can be enhanced with beta-glucan and catechin (or EGCG), the principal component of green tea.

Next, HDL (high density lipoproteins) carries the fatty acids to the liver for further processing.  Niacin, lecithin and omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) are known to increase HDL levels, thus promoting removal of the unwanted fatty acids.

In the liver, lysine and vitamin-C are used to make carnitine.  Carnitine binds to the free fatty acids and carries them into the mitochondria.  At this point, the fatty acids can be broken down into Acetyl-CoA or deposited into the digestive tract. In the liver, when levels of circulating fatty acids are high, the production of acetyl-CoA from fat breakdown exceeds the cellular energy requirements. To make use of the energy available from the excess acetyl-CoA, ketone bodies are produced which can then circulate in the blood, providing an additional source of energy for muscle and brain function.

In summary, the Zerona laser promotes an incredible biological response forcing the release of stored fatty material. However, removal of fatty acids is highly dependent on the function of the lymphatic and circulatory systems and the liver.  Supplements, although not necessary to demonstrate reductions, can enhance the results greatly or allow those individuals that do not respond to achieve better reductions.
