The use of Lipotropics are becoming increasingly popular to aid weight loss as the word is getting out about their effectiveness. Many nutritional doctors and medical weight loss clinics are now administering lipotropic MIC injections into their patients and achieving substantial weigh loss when administered in accordance with a low calorie diet and routine exercise.
Lipotropic nutrients are a class of natural ingredients that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal.
Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to as Lipo Injections, are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits, namely the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks, hips, and underarms. Lipotropic, or fat burning substances include: inositol, which helps the liver remove fat; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body; and methionine, which is similar to inositol, but also amplifies the combination. Injections can be administered up to twice a week
The main nutrients used in lipotropic formulas include: Methione, Inositol, Choline and B12.
Methionine is an essential amino acid that breaks down fats during metabolism. Your body does not produce this amino acid so it must be obtained from foods or through supplements. It acts by preventing excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release. It is also a powerful antitoxidant that is known to help support healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Inositol is a nutrient closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats, contributes to boosting the immune system and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Choline helps break down accumulating fats in the liver and lowers cholesterol deposits.It is also required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body. It is also known to help with the ability to focus and also aids in boosting the immune system. Your body does not produce this amino acid so it must be obtained from foods or through supplements. It is also a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radical damage obtained from toxic metals and it is known to help support healthy skin, hair, and nails.
This vitamin is an essential component needed by the body to help with proper digestion and absorption of foods. It also aids in the breakdown of carbohydrates and fat, playing an important role in proper energy metabolism and immune function. Furthermore, this vitamin is helpful in maintaining healthy nerve cells and helps with the ability to focus. The purpose of the Vitamin B12 is to improve energy levels, boost metabolism and help burn fat.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates.
Injections v Oral Capsules
Oral capsules are a very good option for those with no absorption issues such as leaky gut syndrome or malabsorption syndrome. The benefits of capsules is they are much cheaper than injections, much higher doses (10x) are administered on a daily basis and much more convenient. These are available online from our lab. To order you must register for an online consultation which is free or alternatively contact us.
Injections are better for those who have absorption issues. The down side of injections is the doses administered are significantly lower than those in the capsules, the higher cost and the painful intramuscular injections given every 72 hours. Vitamin B12’s oral absorption can be low in many patients so it is best given as either an injection or nasal spray to ensure adequate absorption.
