What are Lipo-B injections?
These weekly injections of lipotropic methionine, inositol and choline with vitamin B12, are included in the weight loss program. Lipotropic injections are used as an adjunct to a weight loss program because lipotropic agents can help mobilize fat from the liver.
Lipotropic or fat burning substances include methionine which helps the liver remove fat: inositol, similar to methionine; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body. Vitamin B12 can help speed up the overall metabolic processes and create a greater feeling of overall energy.
Because lipotropics directly aid fat breakdown and are closely related to B vitamins, when used together they are thought to intensify the effect. The amino acids that are injected into the body to stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. These injections temporarily boost the metabolic power of the body. As soon as the effect of these substances wears out, the body starts returning to normal gradually.
