Is Your Blood Pressure Drug Causing You To Get Fat?

Lipotoxicity occurs when fat accumulates in places of the body that it doesn’t belong

Beta blocker drugs block receptors on the cells that triggers fat burning

When researchers want to cause fat to build up in the cells, they prescribe beta blockers

Doctors prescribe these medications to people who already have problems with fat-clogged cells (diabetics and obese folks)

Other blood pressure drugs do not inhibit the beta adrenergic receptors on the cells so most other non-beta blocker drugs will not interfere with the burning of fat

Low Vitamin C Impairs Fat Loss

As people lose weight, they have a tendency to deplete their vitamin C levels

As vitamin C decreases, fat oxidation also decreases

Vitamin C is important in the production of L-carnitine and L-carnitine helps to shuttle fat into the cell to be burned

If you’re trying to lose weight, it is recommended that you supplement with whole food vitamin C, such as Pure Radiance C by The Synergy Company (Link in article)
