These hormones assist the metabolism, help to fight allergies and are beneficial in the maintenance of healthy skin, muscles and nerves.
Pantothenic acid is also used in the release of energy as well as the metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates. It is used in the creation of lipids, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones and hemoglobin.
Some are of the opinion that pantothenic acid is also helpful to fight wrinkles as well as graying of the hair.

Carnitine, also known as L-Carnitine, is a naturally occurring nutrient that is produced in the kidneys and liver. This nutrient helps convert fat into energy and has thus obtained a reputation as a viable supplement for weight loss and exercise enhancement.

These lipotropic agents belong to a class of substances that play important roles in the body's use of fat. Of these substances methionine, inositol, and choline are among the mote noteworthy. Through their involvement in the lipid (fat) metabolism, lipotropics help maintain liver function and promote fat excretion.
Methionine is a lipotropic amino acid which reduces fat and aids in the lowering of cholesterol. It also plays a vital upstream role in the synthesis of other amino acids needed by the body.
Inositol and Choline are co-enzymes necessary for the prosper metabolism of fats. A deficiency in inositol has been shown to produce an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver. Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol and aids in their transport in blood vessels. It is therefore an aid in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels. Choline aids in emulsifying cholesterol. Choline also works well with methionine to detoxify amines which are the by-products of protein metabolism. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver, where they black normal metabolic functions.
