Our bodies rely on the proper metabolism of nutrients for energy and optimal function of all aspects of life. One of the most crucial metabolic pathways, known as beta-oxidation, the oxidation of fats, is regulated by a multifactorial cascade of events and dependent upon several key compo- nents. Beta-Oxidation utilizes ketone bodies, produced from fats in the liver, to create acetyl-CoA for the Citric Acid Cycle. Initial introduction of ketones to the inner matrix of the mitochondria is critical for overall homeostasis.
Several implications can affect the transportation and mitochondrial transmembrane transfer of fats and their byproducts. This results in insufficient utilization of fats and can negatively influence health. Inhibiting aspects can include genetic predisposi- tions such as, mutations effecting carnitine and acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase production. Suberate and ethylmalonate build up is a key indicator that fats are not being properly metabolized inside the mitochondria. Influences of fatty acid oxidation disorder can be observed through fatigue, inflamma- tion and increased cholesterol. Inflammation, as a result of fat accumulation, is known to lead to toxin deposits in the circulatory system, portal hypertension, and water retention.
Despite being stored in organs and arteries, fats are also known to be deposited throughout the body as well; Fatty Acid Assist contains the essential nutrients to naturally support the body for proper beta-oxidation.
