How does lipotropic injections help with weight loss?

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. Dr. Lee has used this special formula for individuals who are “stuck” in their weight loss attempts and need that extra boost to achieve their goal weight. This injection has also been gratefully used for individuals who want to maintain their weight, or prevent re-gain of their lost weight. The main ingredients in the lipotropic injection are methionine, inositol, and choline. Some individuals will also benefit the addition of vitamin B12.

 

 

Methionine

assists in the breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body since it can be converted to Cytosine, which is a precursor to Glutathione, which is of prime importance in detoxifying the liver.

 

Inositol

helps to maintain proper electrical energy and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane. It also acts as a lipotropic which converts fats into other useful products. Inositol helps establish healthy cell membranes, which facilitate nerve impulses.

 

Choline

Assists in controlling your weight as well as cholesterol levels, keeping cell membranes healthy and in preventing gallstones. It is also most useful in the maintenance of the nervous system, assisting memory and learning, and may help to fight infections, including hepatitis and AIDS. Choline is critical for normal membrane structure and function. Choline is the major precursor of betaine, and it is used by the kidneys to maintain water balance and by the liver as a source of methyl-groups for Methionine formation. It is also used to produce the important neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. It assists in nerve impulse transmission, gallbladder regulation, liver functions and lecithin production.

 

B-12

is a vitamin which is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production.

How does lipotropic injection help with weight loss?

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.

NOTE:
There is no known toxicity of a typical injected amount of methionine, choline, inositol, however side effects should not be ignored. General gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are some possible side effects of lipotropic injections. There might be some pain and warmness at the site of injection. Those with heart disease, abnormal heart beat or other heart problems should take special caution when using lipotropics as they can increase heart rate. Generally, benefits of lipotropic injections greatly outweigh the small side effects. Always consult a doctor before beginning any weight-loss program.
