Lipotropic injections are used to help burn fat throughout the body by specifically targeting the body’s fat stores. Over the past twenty years, lipotropic has become a staple in the weight loss industry. Their primary components are a complex of three metabolic components: Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. They are known to increase the metabolism of fats and can aid with weight loss**. When used together with b vitamins, this combination is thought to intensify fat burning.
B Vitamins, Adenosine, & Carnitine:
All B vitamins help you convert the protein, carbohydrates, and fats you eat into energy. These vitamins help the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. They also help form red blood cells. Not getting enough of certain B vitamins can cause diseases. A lack of B 12 or B6 can cause anemia.
Carnitine – plays a critical role in energy production. It transports fatty acids to produce energy and can cause increased fat burning.
Adenosine – plays a role in promoting sleep, suppressing arousal and regulation of blood flow.
Bl (thiamine) – Enables the body to use carbohydrates as energy and is essential for glucose metabolism. Plays a key role in nerve, muscle, and heart function. Vitamin Bl, or thiamin, helps prevent complications in the nervous system, brain, muscles, heart, stomach, and intestines.
B2 (riboflavin) – helps break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply. Increases Blood Circulation. Vitamin 82 can help to prevent many common conditions like migraine headaches, cataracts, acne, dermatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and eczema. It can also regulate thyroid activity.
B3 (niacin) – As a supplement, niacin may help lower cholesterol, ease arthritis and boost brain function. Lowers LDL Cholesterol. May Help Prevent Heart Disease and some types of skin cancer as well.
B5 (pantothenic acid) – It’s necessary for making blood cells, healthy skin, hair, and eyes. Helps with proper functioning of the nervous system and liver and a healthy digestive tract.
B6 – Your body cannot produce vitamin B6, so you must obtain it from foods or supplements. Known to improve mood and symptoms of depression. Promotes brain health and may reduce Alzheimer’s risk. Helpful in preventing and treating anemia, symptoms of PMS, promoting eye health and helping the prevention of developing certain types of cancer. B6 supplements may reduce your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
B7 (biotin) – Metabolizes carbohydrates, fats and amino acids (energy). It helps with improving skin, hair, and nails. It can help with high blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes and may be helpful in decreasing insulin resistance and improving glucose tolerance.
B12 – Vitamin B 12 is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function. It helps with fatigue and weakness. Supports bone health and prevent osteoporosis. Reduces your risk of macular degeneration. It is known to improve mood and symptoms of depression and give you an energy boost. Also, known for improving heart health.
Folic acid – Folic acid is used for preventing and treating low blood levels of folate as well as its complications. Folic acid is used for memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, age-related hearing loss, preventing eye disease, sleep problems, depression, nerve pain, and muscle pain. Also, known to reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure and heart disease.
