M3 is a dietary supplement which claims to boost your energy levels, improve your metabolism and lower your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
But critics are calling the supplement an unproven, dangerous, and potentially harmful health supplement.
News24 spoke to the head of the UK’s Food Standards Agency, Richard Lewis, who has been conducting an investigation into the product.
Here are his findings.
M3 claims to ‘boost energy levels’ M3 products claim to ‘enhance your energy level’, boost metabolism and improve your health by reducing the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, according to the Food Standards Authority.
This is what it says on the back of the packaging.
“Enhancing energy levels by increasing your metabolic rate and lowering the risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome”.
M3’s claims about energy levels have also been linked to weight loss and weight gain, but not by itself.
It’s also claimed to reduce inflammation and improve blood sugar levels.
But the evidence is mixed.
In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of M3 in the US and UK, and it remains banned in Canada.
M4 is an alternative that’s also being investigated for the same reasons, although it’s not clear whether it will be banned in the same way.
But there’s no evidence that it’s harmful.
So far, M4 has not been tested in humans, and there’s a lot of controversy around it.
Here’s how it works.
Molybdenum disulfide, a mineral found in the body, is made when the body uses oxygen to produce the molecule of Moly.
When Moly breaks down, the broken Moly atom turns into another molecule of the same mineral called Molybisulfide.
This molecule can then bind to a protein called MCP1, which controls a process called glycolysis that converts the Moly to glucose.
The resulting Moly is then converted to energy by the mitochondria of the cells.
MCP-1 is present in nearly every cell in the human body, but Molys production is reduced in some cases.
When the body can no longer make Moly, it uses the remaining Moly in its metabolism.
This can happen if the MCP is destroyed by toxins such as ketones.
There is also a link between Moly production and the production of free fatty acids.
Free fatty acids are a class of fatty acids that can be found in meats, dairy products and other foods, including fish.
The ketones they provide are an important source of energy, and some researchers suggest that they may be responsible for the health benefits of consuming Moly supplements.
Methylglyoxal, another Moly molecule, is produced by cells as well as in the liver and pancreas.
Mephedrone, an Moly metabolite, is also produced in the brain.
The amount of free Moly produced in each organ depends on the type of organ involved.
In the brain, the liver produces Moly as part of a process that involves the breakdown of ketones and converting them to fatty acids, while the pancreases make Mepedrone.
These are the three most commonly used Moly metabolites.
M6 and M7 are also produced by the liver, which converts Moly into the other two metabolites.
There’s also some evidence that free M6 may also play a role in the development of metabolic syndrome.
In one study, the authors found that free-M6 levels in young healthy adults who had metabolic syndrome, or type 2 diabetes, were significantly lower than in healthy people who did not have metabolic syndrome or type 1 diabetes.
They also found that a lower M6 level was associated with greater levels of both type 2 and type 1 diabetic brain inflammation.
Free-M7 was also associated with reduced insulin sensitivity in people with metabolic syndrome but not type 1.
It seems the combination of M6, M7 and free M7 may play a key role in a range of disorders.
But whether Moly improves your brain inflammation is still an open question.
M2 is a ‘natural supplement’ for ‘the body’ M2 products are claimed to help reduce inflammation in the gut, reduce weight gain and improve immune function.
The products are made from the same ingredient as Moly Bisulfide: Molybenzone.
It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of colitis, and can improve the immune system.
However, there’s little evidence that M2 improves gut health, or if it does, it has any beneficial effect.
M1 and M2 are products made by different companies, so it’s unclear whether they contain the same ingredients.
But if they do, they may have the same effects.
A recent study looked at how Moly B12 affects the gut microbiota.
The researchers found that Moly
