B12 Injections: Benefits Beyond Weight Loss

The body relies on a constant internal balance of vitamins and minerals to function at its best. Unfortunately, today’s standard American diet is high in everything we don’t need and low in the essential nutrients that we do.

When trying to lose weight, it’s not just about extra calories and fat, the right balance of vitamins and minerals is essential too. One of the most essential is vitamin B12, which plays a role in digestion and helps you metabolize your food. But many people are deficient in vitamin B12.

According to the National Institutes of Health, as much as 15 percent of the population, to be exact. That’s why we offer vitamin B12 injections as part of our overall weight loss plan. But it’s not just about weight loss, the benefits extend way beyond that.

Nerve Function

A shot of vitamin B12 provides enough of the vitamin to protect the nerves and ensure proper nerve function. Vitamin B12 is used to build myelin sheaths around the nerves, which are the only way the nerves can properly signal, and also protects them from glutamate, which can damage the brain and lead to things like dementia.

Energy Production

B12 is also crucial for proper metabolism. It helps convert the carbohydrates you eat into energy you can use, and while this does help you lose weight, it also boosts your energy levels.

Anemia

Vitamin B12 shots also help prevent and treat anemia, especially a condition called pernicious anemia, where the body isn’t able to make enough red blood cells. Your body uses vitamin B12 to make blood cells, and when there’s not enough, your health suffers.

Age-related Macular Degeneration

Vitamin B12 helps regulate the levels of an amino acid called homocysteine in the blood. High levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, a disease that affects the area of the eye responsible for central vision. B12 injections can lower homocysteine levels, reducing the risk of developing the disease.

B12 Injections can also help:

  • boost energy levels
  • detoxify the body
  • ease stress
  • aid in digestion
  • promote healthy immune function
  • reduce depression
  • promote better sleep
  • keep skin and nails healthy
  • metabolize fat

Should I Get Lipotropic Injections?

Weight loss is multi-faceted. Successful weight loss relies on different bodily processes working together in harmony. While regular exercise and a healthy diet helps activate and get these processes going in the right direction, sometimes it’s just not enough to see results you’re looking for. When you want to boost or kickstart your weight loss, lipotropic injections may be what you need.

Lipotropic Injections Increase Calorie Burn

To achieve weight loss, you have to create a calorie deficit, by either reducing calorie intake or increasing calorie burn. Lipotropic injections help you burn more calories by boosting your body’s production of a compound called adenosine monophosphate, which increases your metabolic rate and makes it easier for you to lose weight.

Fat Control

Lipotropic injections help control both the storage and placement of fat. A substance called Inositol plays a particularly important role in fat control. Inositol, which is part of the B-complex family, assists in weight loss by breaking down fatty deposits in the body and helping the body’s overall metabolism of fats.

Cell and Nerve Function

Healthy cell and nerve function both play essential roles in weight loss. Lipotropic injections help boost the health of your cells and nerves, improving their function, through various substances, like choline.

Choline helps your body make acetylcholine, an energy-producing neurotransmitter. One of the primary building blocks of acetylcholine is fat. That’s why those who are deficient in choline crave more of the calorie dense fatty foods associated with weight gain.

Charge Your Metabolism

Your body constantly adjusts your metabolism to maintain balance. When your metabolism is running smoothly and efficiently, you burn calories more effectively and you lose weight faster.

Lipotropic injections include B vitamins, like B6, B12, and B5 to assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates and fats so you can use them. These vitamins also help boost energy and promote an overall healthy and efficient metabolism.

If you feel like you’ve tried every diet and exercise plan and you’re still not seeing the results you want, lipotropic injections may be just the answer you need. You can learn more about our injections or contact us if you’re ready to dive in.
