Also known as "MIC-B12 shots." Lipotropic injections are used to help release fat deposits in some parts of the body. Lipotropic, or fat burning, substances include methionine, inositol, similar to methionine, and choline. B12 is purported by its users and practitioners to help speed up the overall metabolic processes and create a greater feeling of overall energy. Because lipotropics aid fat breakdown and are closely related to B vitamins, when used together they are thought to intensify each others' effects. These injections may boost the metabolic power of the body.
What are Lipo-B shots?
The injections are only effective temporarily. As soon as the effect of these substances wears out, the body starts returning to normal gradually. Injections can be administered once a week.
Methionine (M) - an amino acid; acts to prevent excess fat build-up in the liver and the body. May help in relieving or preventing fatigue and may have action in the anti-inflammatory process by reducing histamine release.
Inositol (I) - a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex; closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Choline (C) - supports the health of the liver by processing and excreting chemical waste products within the body. In addition, it facilitates fat absorption by the cells. It is essential for the health of kidneys and liver.
B12 – an essential vitamin that helps form new healthy cells in the body. It may act as an energy booster, helping increase activity level, improve sleep patterns, and provide relief from allergies and stress.
