Lipotropic Injections: Why Loving Fat is a Good Thing
Two of the questions that we get asked a lot are what are lipotropic injections and what can they do for you? Well, we’re glad you asked. We currently offer 3 different types of lipotropic injections. Here’s a quick breakdown of each of them.
What Does Lipotropic Mean?
Before we get into the types of injections we offer, let’s discuss the term “lipotropic”. Lipotropic literally means “fat-loving” which doesn’t sound like something you want when it comes to weight loss, but don’t let the translation fool you – you do want it. Lipotropics are substances that have the ability to liquefy fats. They help decrease fat deposits and speed up the removal of fats from the liver, which ultimately translates to weight loss. Lipotropics are most effective when combined with a calorie-controlled diet.
Lipo-B is a lipotropic injection that contains 3 types of lipotropics – choline, inositol, and methionine – as well as a combination of the B vitamins 5, 6, and 12. Choline is important for brain and nerve function, liver metabolism, and the transport of nutrients throughout the body. Many people are deficient in choline, which tends to cause weight gain.
Inositol is a little known member of the vitamin B-complex family. Inositol helps prevent the buildup and accumulation of fat and helps break down fatty acids. It also helps increase mood.
Methionine supports healthy growth and metabolism, prevents excess fat in the liver and body, and decreases inflammation. The B vitamins support the metabolism of carbohydrates and fatty acids and help increase your energy levels.
Lipo Excel injections are similar to Lipo-B injections, but they work even faster. In addition to the ingredients found in Lipo-B, Lipo Excel injections contain Adenosine. Adenosine, which also occurs naturally in the body, helps promote weight loss while also increasing energy, improving mood, and boosting metabolism.
Lipo Blast contains all of the ingredients in Lipo-B with the benefit of added B vitamins. In addition to vitamins B-5, B-6, and B-12, Lipo Blast contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, and B-7. These B vitamins provide more metabolic support, increase energy, and help you break down fat even more effectively.
Advantages of Injections over Pills
Although all of these components are available in oral supplement form, there are some MAJOR advantages to getting injections. One of the biggest advantages is increased absorption. When you take a pill orally, it travels through your digestive system and into your stomach and small intestines, where it’s broken down and then finally reaches your bloodstream.
Unfortunately, this whole process impairs absorption so you’re not really getting as much of the supplement as you think you are. When you get an injection, you bypass the entire digestive system so absorption is quicker and more efficient. Another benefit is that injections tend to last longer, so you don’t need to get them as frequently as you would need to take pills.
