Lipotropic compounds are substances that help stimulate the breakdown of lipid (fat) during metabolism and, in this way, reduce the accumulation of excess fat in the liver and other tissues. Injections of carefully calibrated doses of nautral lipotropic nutrients can improve your ability to metabolize fat. The liver plays a major role in human metabolism, including aiding in the digestion, storage and distribution of nutrients and the detoxification of metabolic poisons and waste products. The liver also produces bile, a compound that emulsifies fat so that it can be broken down by digestive enzymes. Lipotropic injections that include important amino acids and vitamins can the increase function of the liver; thus breaking down the fat and preventing additional accumulation.
Choline 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.
Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine & cystine are others) 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. Patients with a Sulfa allergy should not take this injection.
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 action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Vitamins play an important and essential role in the health and metabolism of our bodies. Modern day science and medicine has only just begun to uncover the many important roles these vitamins play. We know for certain that B Vitamins play a critical role in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. They are also important for maintaining our immune system, boosting athletic performance and increasing energy levels. The following is a list of Vitamins included in our LipoMIC + Vitaplex booster shot. It contains our own proprietary blend of Vitamins. The explanations below for the function of each of these vitamins comes from the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin). Riboflavin is required for the proper development and function of the skin, lining of the digestive tract, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. Other uses include increasing energy levels; boosting immune system function; maintaining healthy hair, skin, mucous membranes, and nails; slowing aging; boosting athletic performance; promoting healthy reproductive function and improving memory function.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine). Thiamine is required by our bodies to properly use carbohydrates. Thiamine is also used for boosting the immune system. Healthcare providers give thiamine shots for a memory disorder called Wernicke's encephalopathy syndrome. Other uses include preventing canker sores, vision problems such as cataracts and glaucoma, improving athletic performance and preventing progression of kidney disease in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Some people use thiamine for maintaining a positive mental attitude; enhancing learning abilities; increasing energy; fighting stress; and preventing memory loss, including Alzheimer's disease.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid). Pantothenic acid is important for our bodies to properly use carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids and for healthy skin. It is also taken for diabetic nerve pain, enhancing immune function, trouble sleeping (insomnia), irritability, muscular cramps in the legs associated with pregnancy or alcoholism.
Pantothenic acid is also used orally for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, reducing signs of aging, reducing susceptibility to colds and other infections, stimulating adrenal glands, chronic fatigue syndrome.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine). Pyridoxine is required for the proper function of sugars, fats, and proteins in the body. It is also required for the proper growth and development of the brain, nerves, skin, and many other parts of the body. Pyridoxine is used for high cholesterol; reducing blood levels of homocysteine, a chemical that might be linked to heart disease; and helping clogged arteries stay open after a balloon procedure to unblock them (angioplasty).
Women use pyridoxine for premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and other menstruation problems, stopping milk flow after childbirth, depression related to pregnancy and symptoms of menopause.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalmin). Vitamin B12 is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. It is also used for heart disease, lowering high homocysteine levels (which may contribute to heart disease), depression. Most often however, Vitamin B12 gets used for boosting energy.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). These days, vitamin C is used most often for preventing and treating the common cold. It is also used for thinking problems, physical and mental stress and fatigue. Additional uses include improving physical endurance and slowing aging.
Sometimes, people put vitamin C on their skin to protect it against the sun, pollutants, and other environmental hazards. Vitamin C is also applied to the skin to help with damage from radiation therapy.
Lidocaine. Some may complain that this injection “burns” at the injection site without something added to numb the injection area. Lidocaine is mixed in with the injection and produces pain relief by blocking the signals at the nerve endings in the skin to alleviate this effect.
