(often referred to as: Lipotropic B-12 Injections, Lipotropics or vitamin B12 with Lipotropics)
Lipotropics are weight loss combinations that must be administered by a licensed and registered MD, physician, or weight loss clinic professional. The Lipo B12 injections or Lipotropic injections cannot be purchased over the Internet for self injections and weight loss treatment.
The Lipo-B vitamin cocktail included in the Lipotropic and B12 shots (Lipo-B) are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. Lipo-B decreases fat deposits and speeds up the metabolism and the natural removal of fat from the human body. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate). There are three key amino acids used to make these lipotropic shots are Vitamin B12, Choline, Methione, and Inositol. Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.
Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical wast 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.
Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions. 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.
Inositol, 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 the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
