Lipotropic-B injections contains a mixture of compounds that aid in the reduction of fatty tissue. The mixture of compounds individually may be effective, however in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic activity than when administered alone. This combination is used to increase the potential for release of fat deposits in certain parts of the body for example, the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks and hips. Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation.
Lipotropic-B [MIC] Compounds
These lipotropic, or fat burning, compounds are structurally and functionally related to B-vitamins and are often employed together in of assisting fat-loss. These compounds, commonly referred to as MIC (Methionine—Inositol—Choline) are injected into the body to stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and provide the needed metabolic environment of the body for a fatty acid mobilization and utilization.
- Methionine helps the liver maintain the optimal ability to process fatty acids.
- Inositol is a sugar-like molecule and may be effective in reducing insulin resistance, a common condition associated with increase body fat.
- Choline is a simple molecule usually classified as a B vitamin, involved in the generation of energy and support of metab- olism and also distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body.
- B12 (Cyanocobalamin): Cyanocobalamin is an essential nutrient known as vitamin B12 and is the most widely used form of vitamin B12. B12 is purported by its users and practitioners to help speed up overall metabolic processes and create a greater feeling of overall energy and well being. Individuals may be deficient in vitamin B12 due to poor dietary absorption and the human body is incapable of producing vitamin B12 on its own. B12 must be consumed in the diet. Consumption of vitamin B-12 may be an effective agent to speed up metabolism, especially if the individual has a deficiency.
Injections Used For
Lipotropic-B injections are used to help release fat deposits in certain parts of the body. Some of these areas include the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks and hips. Lipotropic, or fat burning, substances include methionine which helps the liver remove fat; inositol is similar to methionine; choline which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposit- ed in one part of the body.
Possible Side Effects
Potential side effects include stomach upset and urinary problems due to the strain the injections place on the kidneys. De- pression is another possible side effect. Some patients are unable to control their urine, and/or have diarrhea. Finally, some patients reported an unpleasant odor. Lipotropic injections change the function of the digestive system temporarily. This can result in extreme exhaustion, since the body is not used to working at this level and condition. Unexplained pain in unrelated parts of the Dosage Strengths of Lipotropic Injection Methionine / Inositol / Choline Chloride / Cyanocobalamin 25/50/50/1 mg/mL 10 mL Vial Lipotropic-B (MIC) Injection body is another potential side effect. Patients have complained of pain in the neck and parts of the hand. Some patients have also experienced joint pains and allergic reactions to the injections. Call your primary physician healthcare provider immediately if you are experiencing any signs of an allergic reaction: wheezing; chest tightness; fever; itching; bad cough; blue skin color; fits; or swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat; also if you experience severe behavioral problems, chest pain or pressure or fast heartbeat, severe dizziness or passing out, nervousness and excitability, or severe headache.
