Controlled diet and more exercise are essential to your weight loss journey, but there are additional practices we use at Weigh to Wellness to help with progress and your overall health. One of those ways is through weight loss injections at our clinic in Birmingham, AL. We offer B12 and Lipotropic (or lipo) shots. These injections are specifically focused on burning fat by stimulating liver function, boosting metabolism, and delivering antioxidants that help the body break down fat cells. As we’ve said, these are most effective when paired with a healthy eating plan and exercise.
Below is an overview of the content of the shots we offer:
This basically describes three amino acids that are essential for the health of your liver. Your liver is the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from your body, so if it is healthier, it will work better for you. A healthy liver will remove fat and toxins better, which can greatly aid with weight loss.
By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat (lipo = lat, tropic = stimulate) within the liver. The key amino acids used to make these shots are: Vitamin B12, choline, methionine, and Inositol.
B12 gives you an energy boost that helps to burn calories. This vitamin is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. Many of us are B12 deficient, meaning that we simply don’t get enough from our food throughout the day.
When you receive weight loss injections at our clinic in Birmingham, AL, B12 and lipo aren’t the only things in the shots, in fact, there are other amino acids and nutrients that assist the B12 vitamin and lipo:
Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. It is essential for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, making it important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
Methionine is an amino acid that is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, making it helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue. Do not take this injection if you have a SULFA allergy.
Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
