Lipotropic or Plain B-12 Injections
Fight fat more successfully with lipotropic injections at our center in New Braunfels, Texas. The Weight Loss Center uses methionine, inositol, choline, and other lipotropic compounds to catalyze the breakdown of fat in the body. These compounds also promote the removal of fat from the liver and are necessary to maintain a healthy liver.
The fat that is removed is then burned for additional energy. If adequate lipotropes are not present, bile and fats may become trapped in the liver, which can result in cirrhosis and a reduced fat metabolism.
This amino acid speeds up the removal of fat from the liver and prevents excess fat buildup in the body. It is a great antioxidant since it fights free radicals.
This aids in weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body. It also helps to prevent high cholesterol and atherosclerosis.
Choline assists in the emulsification of fats and cholesterol by helping form smaller fat globules in the blood. It also aids the transport of fats through smaller vasculature out of cells.
What is the role of B vitamins?
B vitamins help increase metabolism, enhance immune functioning, and promote cell growth. They are water soluble and should be replenished often due to excess being excreted in the urine. The B12 in the injections is in the methylated form and is known as methylcobalamin. This is the most biologically active form of B12, and the only form that can cross the blood-brain barrier.
How often should I get a shot?
It is recommended that patients receive an injection twice a week. This is due to the fact that the lipotropes only last three to four days in the body. We do not recommend coming into the weight loss center to receive both shots within a 24-hour period since excess is excreted in the urine. Use of the lipotorpic injections for weight loss is theory-based, not evidence-based.
Turn fat into energy with L-carnitine injections at our Schertz, Texas, center. Weight Loss & Testosterone Wellness Center uses carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient, because it’s central to your body's ability to turn fat into energy. Any time you try to get a leaner physique, lower cholesterol, or lose weight, there is no more natural way to support that process than with carnitine.
Carnitine also plays a central role in helping cells make energy. Its wide range of benefits and lack of toxicity have made it the most remarkable nutrient used in our center over the last 14 years! We’ve never seen people feel such an improved state of overall wellness and a natural increase in energy as they have when they elevate their intake of carnitine.
Essential to Weight Loss
Although carnitine is not technically an essential nutrient given that the body does produce small amounts of it, for optimal health, carnitine supplementation is essential. In fact, carnitine deficiency is more common than people realize. It can lead to obesity, fatigue, elevated triglycerides, heart problems, and other problems.
A recent study showed the powerful advantage of combining carnitine with a weight loss program. For subjects who ate a healthy diet and got moderate exercise for 12 weeks, the average weight loss was one pound. For those who added two grams (two tablespoons of liquid or four capsules) daily, weight loss averaged 11 lbs.
Why does carnitine have this effect?
Carnitine is the forklift that takes fat to the fat incinerators in our cells. These incinerators, called mitochondria, burn or metabolize fat as a ready source of energy.
