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 natural lipotropic nutrients can improve your ability to shed fat.
Lipotropic Injections Improve Weight Loss
Lipotropics is the medical word for the three amino acids that are essential for the health of your liver. Your liver plays a major role in metabolism including:
Many substances have lipotropic properties. The most effective lipotropic agents for weight loss purposes are choline, inositol and methionine. Through their involvement in lipid (fat) metabolism, lipotropic agents help maintain a healthy liver.
At Alexander Clinic our physicians use lipotropic injections that include a combination of lipotropic agents, important amino acids and vitamins to help you lose weight more quickly and effectively. Depending on your body’s composition, chemistry and weight loss goals, our doctors may recommend any of the following combination of injectable therapies:
B12 Injections: The B12 vitamin injections are important to keep the brain and nervous system functioning normally and for the formation of red blood cells. By synthesizing and regulating DNA, B12 is involved in cellular metabolism. It also plays a vital role in fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Many medications, certain medical conditions, and the normal aging process can lead to a B12 deficiency.
B12 + Lipotropics (Lipoplex): The vitamin cocktail included in the B12 and Lipotropic shots are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. The key amino acids used to make these shots are: Vitamin B12, Choline, Methione, and Inositol.
Lipoden Injections: This injection cocktail is the same as the B12 with Lipotropics (Lipoplex), with an extra additive: Myoden. Lipoden works faster than the Lipoplex because the Myoden forces the fat cells to heat up and burn calories. These injections are recommended for patients wanting to lose weight quickly and those who are obese. These injections are also promising for those stuck in a plateau or beginning to show signs of gaining weight.
Injections last from one to four weeks, depending on the individual. Most patients feel so much better when receiving them, that they ask if they can have another...even those who don't like needles. You may come in for an injection between appointments or take an extra dose or two home with you for later injection.
