Looking for a safe and effective way to loss weight and have better energy? The answer would be to eat right and exercise. But what happens when everything from dietary and lifestyle changes to fitness programs are not meeting your weight loss goal? Some turn to a relatively new treatment using lipotropic injections. The injections are designed to reduce weight, increase energy and produce results when other methods have failed.
Lipotropics are also called “fat burners”. It is consist of methionine, choline, and inositol. These nutrients enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. Aside from B12, lipotropics is also used for speeding up body metabolism. Faster body metabolism is needed for patients undergoing weight loss treatments. B12 may not be sufficient on metabolic processes because B12 is almost used up for energy consumptions. That’s why lipotropics are needed to fill this void. Lipotropics is a naturally occurring compound produced in our body and thus it is safe.
Methionine–An amino acid that reduces fats and aids in lowering cholesterol. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent 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.
Choline–A nutrient known to help reduce fat in the liver. It supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
Inositol–A nutrient used to metabolize and transfer fats in the blood stream. It is 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.
