What are Lipotropic Compounds?


Weight Loss and Lipotropic Injections Core Medical Group has carefully prepared calibrated doses of natural lipotropic nutrients that can optimize your ability to shed fat with an injection of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are essential for the health of your liver.

Lipotropics work by increasing production of lecithin in your liver. Lecithin breaks down fat into smaller molecules known as fatty acids. While your body tends to store large fat molecules in fat cells for later use, it prefers to use the smaller fatty acid molecules immediately as instant energy. This also allows fat to mix with water to make it easier for the body to transport fat away from the body.

These lipotropic nutrients that help break down fat during the metabolic process include methionine, choline, and inositol.  These nutrients promote the consumption of fat from the liver for extra energy, thereby promoting liver health.  Without lipotropics such as choline and inositol, fats and bile can become trapped in the liver, causing severe problems such as cirrhosis and blocking proper fat metabolism.

Lipotropics


Methionine – is a naturally occurring, antioxidant amino acid that acts as a lipotropic agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in the body.  It aids in breaking that fat down and is one of the important amino acids that increases lean muscle mass.
Methionine also helps prevent or relieve fatigue and increases energy.

Additionally, the amino acid methionine is also a great antioxidant as the sulfur it supplies inactivates or neutralizes free radicals.  It aids in breaking down and removing heavy metals from the body. It is also instrumental in removing toxins such as byproducts of foods, alcohol and medications/drugs that you take and everyone has the potential for buildup of these damaging toxins. Methionine works with choline to detoxify amines; acts as a catalyst for choline and inositol, opening up their function; aids in removing liver fat and protects the kidneys.

Studies seem to show benefits for patients with depression, arthritis, and chronic liver disease (although these claims are under investigation).  Some studies have also indicated that methionine include improvement of skin tone, elasticity, nails and hair, as well as improvement of cardiovascular and muscular functions through its role in the production of creatinine. Methionine also can prevent buildup of fatty acids in the blood vessels which cause coronary artery disease and blockages in other parts of the body, including the neck and legs.

It has also been studied in relation to pancreatitis and Parkinson’s disease. Adequate levels of methionine have been shown to be important in the prevention of lung cancer.  In a new study from the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France, researcher Paul Brennan, PhD reports “vitamin B6 and methionine are strongly associated with reducing lung cancer risk in people who never smoked, those who quit, and current smokers.”

Inositol – is part of the vitamin B complex.  As a mild lipotropic agent, it aids in weight loss and redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body.  It is also associated with proper insulin function which is necessary for utilization of carbohydrates.

Inositol is also vital for hair growth and a deficiency can actually lead to hair loss.

As a component of lecithin, it helps to prevent and reduce high cholesterol and the hardening of the arteries caused by cholesterol buildup. It has also been said to have a calming effect on the nervous system, and is being studied as a possible treatment for depression, panic attacks, schizophrenia and even Alzheimer’s disease. Inositol is key in modulating serotonin levels, with serotonin being partially responsible for feelings of well-being versus depression.

Inositol also works with vitamin E to facilitate as actions in the treatment of Muscular Dystrophy. It helps diabetic nerve pain, insomnia, attention deficit-hyperactivity (ADHD), autism, and psoriasis.  Please note that caffeine can cause depletion of inositol.

Choline –is also part of the vitamin B family and essential for fat metabolism.  It aids the utilization of fats in the body and supports weight loss.  Choline assists in the emulsifying of fats and cholesterol in the body by helping to form smaller fat globules in the blood and aiding the transport of fats through smaller channels out of the cells, it also helps with general body detoxification by “decongestion” the liver of excess fats.

Choline is also helpful for fatigue because when choline is depleted in the body, fat metabolism and utilization may be decreased. Choline is currently being studied as a natural treatment for NASH and Fatty Liver. It detoxifies amines which are by products of protein metabolism.

Choline supplements may reduce homocysteine levels in the blood, thus reducing the likelihood of heart disease.

Choline is often taken as building block of acetylcholine. Research suggests that memory, intelligence and mood are improved by adequate levels of choline.

B Vitamins


B1 (Thiamine) – helps your body to use carbohydrates for energy. It is also important for normal function of your heart, muscles, and nervous system.
B2 (Riboflavin) – metabolism and the conversion of food into energy; helps produce red blood cells
B3 (Niacin) – assists in digestion and the conversion of food into energy; important in the production of cholesterol
B5 (Pantothenic Acid) – important in fatty acid metabolism
B6 – is required by your body for utilization of energy in the foods you eat, production of red blood cells, and proper functioning of the nervous system. Additionally, it helps the body metabolize proteins and sugar
B12 (Cyanocobalamin) – is another nutrient necessary for proper central nervous system function.  Since red meats are the most significant source of vitamin B12 in our diets, many of us are deficient and do not realize it. It gives you a boost of energy for weeks.  The B-12 in the MIC Ultra injection also activates the other ingredients and their fat reduction properties.

It plays an important part in the production of red blood cells, in the utilization of iron, and preventing anemia.  It is an important component of the body system because it is required for proper digestion, absorption and synthesis of foods, protein synthesis, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.  In my experience, patients benefit even if they are not deficient in B-12.

Many people that take this as a supplement on a regular basis report they have more energy, healthier immune systems, less allergies, stress, depression, more stamina, better sleep and less frequent, less severe headaches.

It is now being used to treat early onset Alzheimer’s disease and as a treatment for children with autism and similar disabilities.

How Lipotropic Injections Work to Help You Lose Weight


Lipotropic compounds work by encouraging your body to release fat. Lipotropic injections deliver the fat-releasing action of lipotropic compounds directly into areas of your body that stubbornly hold onto fat molecules. Once lipotropic injections free the fat from fat cells, the powerful compounds help your body convert that fat into instant fuel.

Injection vs. Pill


The Vitamin B12 Lipotropic injection ensures your body receives all necessary nutrients to keep you at your energetic best. Many of these nutrients are not absorbable by mouth and need to be taken by injection.

Lipotropic injections provide better results quicker than do oral supplements. The digestive tract must first break down oral supplements before your body can absorb the active ingredients in the pill; this can take several hours. Lipotropic injections, on the other hand, deliver the active ingredients directly into body tissues where your body needs it. Additionally, pills can sometimes contain low quality ingredients and fillers that can prevent your body from absorbing the active ingredients.

You can be certain of exact dosing and fast absorption with lipotropic injections. Injectable medications provide the fastest therapeutic effects of all delivery modes. These injections create an effect in which the body absorbs lipotropic compounds slowly in a steady-state dose. Lipotropic injections are better than a pill because you do not need to take them as often.

Injections are safe, effective and an easy way to keep your body well-balanced. Vitamin B12 Lipotropic injections help increase your energy as well as contribute to the success of your weight loss plan.
