Science of Fat Loss
Knowledge is Power
Immortal's B5 FAT BURNING TECHNOLOGY products raise awareness of Dr. Leung's breakthrough Vitamin B5 discoveries (i.e., that Vitamin B5 increases coenzyme A) . Large amounts of vitamin B5 help create more ATP (more energy supports a higher metabolism) while reducing hunger. Oh, and by the way, Leung tells us that ketone bodies (i.e., ketosis) results from inefficient fat burning. With high-dose vitamin B5, more Coenzyme-A leads to more efficient fat burning - without ketosis.
Pantothenic Acid as a Weight-Reducing Agent: Fasting Without Hunger, Weakness and Ketosis

During a year long study of 100 subjects, Leung' tested his Vitamin B5/CoA theory. Subjects lost 1.2 Kg per week on a 1000 calorie diet, without ketosis. The only reported "side effect" was the feeling of well-being.
Abstract -- With the conventional
method of fasting or aggressive dieting to reduce excess body fat, hunger, weakness, ketogenesis
and ketosis are the sequential events that follow. It is not fully understood why, under
conditions of negative calorie balance where complete energy release from storage fat is critical,
ketosis should arise with a concomitant wastage of energy. Here, I wish to propose a theory that
relates the formation of ketone bodies under such conditions to a deficiency in dietary
pantothenic acid. Supplementation of this vitamin would facilitate complete catabolism of fatty
acids and thus the formation of ketone bodies could be circumvented. As a result, a sufficient
amount of energy would be released from storage fat to relieve dieters of the sensation of
hunger and weakness which otherwise would be difficult to endure. Hence, using this method for
weight reduction together with a careful observation of calorie intake, I have great success
in treating overweight-to-obese patients to lose weight.
A Stone that Kills two Birds: How Pantothenic Acid Unveils the Mysteries of Acne Vulgaris and Obesity . Department of Surgery. Hong Kong Central Hospital. Hong Kong Lit-Hung Leung. M.D. Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine Vol. 12, No. 2, 1997) .
Abstract Acne vulgaris is the most common disease of the skin. Obesity is arguably the commonest of a clinical entities in the affluent society. The pathogenesis of these disorders is far from clear cut and they appear to have little in common. In the present paper it is hypothesized that the pathogenesis of both acne vulgaris and obesity is largely due to a relative deficiency of the same agent, pantothenic acid, a vitamin that is hitherto quite unknown to cause any deficiency syndromes in man. Furthermore, the evidence suggests that surprisingly large doses of pantothenic acid are required to overcome deficiency states as illustrated in the treatment of acne vulgaris and weight reduction.
Nothing Beats Knowledge Backed by Science
The essence of a successful effortless, sustainable fat loss program:
#1 Avoid eating High Fat and High Carb at the same time. Usually High Fat/Low Carb will promote sustainable weight loss.
#2 Eat only whole foods, preferably organic (minus any hormones or pesticides)
#3 Not all calories are the same. Eat to minimize insulin levels.
#4 Consider intermittent fasting. To help correct insulin resistance and lower the body weight set point.
IMMORTALS contribution -- Products that make it easy to maintain a higher metabolism, without hunger, or weakness, while intermittent fasting.
#3 Supplement at least 10 grams of Vitamin B5 (pantothenic Acid) daily. Divide into 4 equal doses, and take between meals. If there is ketosis, increase the dosage, to as much as 20,000 mg of vitamin B5 daily.
