Lipotropic Injections Q&A

What are lipotropic injections?

Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to as Lipotropic Injections or Lipo Shots, are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits. Lipotropic, or fat burning substances include:

Inositol: helps the liver remove fat
Choline: distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body
Methionine: similar to inositol, but also amplifies the combination

Different formulas of lipotropic injections offer a wide range of health benefits. In addition to the ingredients mentioned above, your customized lipotropic injections may include:

  • Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B-12)*
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)
  • L-carnitine
  • Vitamin C
  • Amino Acids

*B12 is usually a standard component of MIC injections. You depend on vitamin B-12 to produce red blood cells and DNA, so if you’re running low, it’s a big deal, but you’re not alone. One study found that about 40% of all Americans are B-12 deficient. And if you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, you might be one of them, because you get most of your vitamin B-12 from animal-based foods.

How do Lipotropic injections work?

In lay terms, your metabolism is the process that turns the food you eat into the energy it needs. To stay active, you rely on this system to run smoothly and efficiently, but a number of health and lifestyle factors can make your metabolism grind to a halt or become sluggish. When that happens, you experience frustrating side effects like weight gain or the inability to lose weight.

The ingredients in lipotropic injections boost metabolism by providing your body and its cells with the energy they need to function properly. With your metabolism firing on all cylinders, you’ll notice a surplus of natural energy and that you are able to lose weight easier.

However, lipotropic injections won’t magically cause your body to shed pounds, but if your weight loss has stalled because of a sluggish metabolism, these shots just might be the missing piece to make your dieting and exercise routine more effective.

When your metabolism runs as it should, it uses the food you eat as energy, but if your metabolism malfunctions, it stores your food as fat instead. Lipotropic injections reignite your metabolism so it burns your fat storages and uses food as energy, preventing further weight gain.

How are lipotropic injections administered?

These injections are typically administered into the areas on the body with the most fat, like the thigh, abdomen, or buttocks. Patients may receive these injections as a part of your weight-loss program, not as a stand-alone treatment. They can be administered at the clinic free of charge or we teach our patients how to self-administer at home.

Depending on the specific health history and goals of each patient, they may receive injections weekly or twice weekly. Our experts are specially trained and know the exact dosage and frequency a patient needs to achieve the best results.
