Looking for a safe and effective way to loss weight and have better
energy? The answer would be to eat right and exercise. But what happens
when everything from dietary and lifestyle changes to fitness
programs are not meeting your weight loss goal? Some turn to a
relatively new treatment using
lipotropic injections. The injections are designed to reduce weight,
increase energy and produce results when other methods have failed.
Lipotropics are also
called â??fat burnersâ?. It is consist of methionine, choline, and inositol.
These nutrients enhance the liver and gallbladderâ??s role by decreasing
fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. Aside
from B12, lipotropics is also used for speeding up body metabolism.
Faster body metabolism is needed for patients undergoing weight loss
treatments. B12 may not be sufficient on metabolic processes because B12 is
almost used up for energy consumptions. Thatâ??s why lipotropics are
needed to fill this void. Lipotropics is a naturally occurring compound
produced in our body and thus it is safe.
Methionine--An amino acid that reduces fats and aids in lowering cholesterol. 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
Choline--A nutrient known to help reduce fat in the liver. It 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.
Inositol--A nutrient used to metabolize and transfer fats in the blood stream. It is 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
is no known toxicity of a typical injected amount of methionine,
choline, inositol, however side
effects should not be ignored. General gastrointestinal problems such as
nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are some possible side effects of
There might be some pain and warmness at the site of injection. Those
with heart disease, abnormal heart beat or other heart problems
should take special caution when using lipotropics as they can increase
heart rate. Generally, benefits of lipotropic injections greatly
outweigh the small side effects. Always consult a doctor before
beginning any weight-loss
