B12What are Lipotropic Injections?

Lipotropic injections can be an effective weight loss tool for individuals looking to shed those extra pounds. Lipotropics are “fat-attracting” amino acids that the body produces naturally.

These agents help the body effectively remove waste and toxins from the liver, assist in the breakdown of fat, and reduce the buildup of cholesterol.

Lipotropics are essential for a healthy liver because they help reduce the amount of dangerous fat in that organ.

Benefits of Lipotropic Injections

B12 and Weight LossLipotropic injections are used to dissolve excessive fat in some parts of the body where normal exercise doesn’t work. Common areas where fat is difficult to remove include the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks, and hips. A combination of B12 and B6 injections are given in a lipotropic injection. Without lipotropic compounds, fat and bile could accumulate and rise to dangerous levels in your liver, putting you at risk for cirrhosis and other serious liver diseases.

B12 and B6 are not the only substances which may be given in a lipotropic injection. Other substances include Inotisol, which helps the liver remove fat; Choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from depositing in parts of the body; and Methionine, which reduces fat and aids in lowering blood cholesterol levels and is similar to inotisol. In some cases, a combination of these may be given. Injections are typically administered up to twice a week.

Lipotropic injections not only help people to lose weight, but they also help to minimize excess water gain, control estrogen levels, and maintain healthy nails and skin. Lipotropic injections are also used for treating thyroid disorders, relieving adrenal fatigue and controlling hormonal imbalances.
