5 of the Most Effective Weight Loss Supplements

At Valley Medical Weight Loss, we provide a wide range of effective weight loss supplements that help you reach your goals. Learn about 5 of our most popular and effective weight loss supplements to lose weight and feel healthy again.

Losing weight may be a common goal many people have, but it is not a one size fits all endeavor. There are many ways to lose weight, and the most effective option for one person may not work for another.

When you choose which route to take for weight loss, it’s important to consider all of the following:

  • Your health history
  • Current health conditions and concerns
  • How quickly you want to lose weight
  • Dietary restrictions and allergies
  • What makes a sustainable healthy lifestyle work for you

All of these factors influence choosing the right weight loss supplements or programs for your goals. 

Knowing that people need different and personalized solutions, we provide a range of supplement options that can stand alone or be included in our weight loss programs.

5 of our most effective weight loss supplements and programs 

CarbCrave Complex

The CarbCrave Complex helps you reduce carb intake. While carbs are not inherently “bad” for you, many people find that reducing the number of carbs in their diet helps them lose weight. This is especially true for those who have a lot of carbs in their diet and feel near-constant hunger.

Some of the possible benefits include:

  • Appetite suppressant
  • Decreases stress and fatigue
  • Improves mood
  • Prevents stress or boredom related snacking

Lipotropic Complex

The Lipotropic Complex is a popular detox supplement for our patients. It helps you lose weight by flushing fat from the liver. But it also has other benefits:

  • Helps treat depression
  • Regulates liver function
  • Lowers inflammation and assists pain management
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Metabolizes carbohydrates

Crave-A-Way

The Crave-A-Way supplement is another appetite suppressant option. It helps you curb cravings for sweets, carbs, and alcohol. 

It is made of amino acids, and vitamins C, B3, B5, and B6. All of these contribute to weight loss. One of the amino acids, L-phenylalanine, is naturally found in many foods and helps your brain regulate mood and appetite.

Other possible benefits of the supplement include:

  • Improved insulin metabolism
  • Muscle repair and production
  • Enhanced calcium absorption 
  • Reduce anxiety

10 Day Lean & Clean

The 10 Day Lean & Clean supplement helps your body cleanse from the inside out. It’s a 10-day gentle cleanse and an effective way to kick off a diet. It helps you purge toxins from your body, relieve constipation, and cleanse the liver and colon.

Premier Weight Loss Program

Our Premier Weight Loss Program has the benefits of supplements combined with complete one-on-one weight loss support.

Included in the program are a few of our most popular supplements:

  • An appetite suppressant that you qualify for based on your health and goals
  • MetaBlast supplement that helps you burn fat
  • Lipo MaXX injections with B12 to improve mood and weight loss results

On top of the supplements, you also get unparalleled support and guidance for all parts of your weight loss journey. You get diet support, access to our app that helps you plan to exercise, and meal plans. And the plan also includes weekly weigh-ins and 1:1 support from our doctors who tailor the premier program to your needs.

This program is so effective because it combines diet and exercise with supplements that boost your results. Weight loss supplements work better when combined with healthy lifestyle habits like a nutritious diet and consistent exercise. But we know how hard it is to adopt a new healthy lifestyle. That’s why this program includes 1:1 support. 

Book your consult for a personalized and effective weight loss program

We are committed to helping you lose weight in a healthy, safe, and sustainable way. The goal is to lose weight and keep that weight off. That’s why our programs are designed with your long-term success in mind and we teach you the habits to maintain a healthy diet for the long run.

Until August 22, when you sign up for our premier weight loss program, you get four FREE injections of Biotin or Glutathione.

Biotin helps metabolize carbs, fatty acids, and protein. With this supplement, you support your digestive system and regulate your cholesterol and blood sugars. As an added bonus, it also helps strengthen your hair and nails.

Glutathione is an antioxidant that’s naturally produced by your cells. It helps you prevent diseases like cancer, diabetes, and arthritis. Plus, it helps strengthen weakened immune systems, slows the aging process, and improves cognitive function.

We take your complete health profile into account when creating a weight loss program and give you supplements that make your weight loss journey smoother than doing it alone.

When one of the biggest weight loss challenges is staying motivated, it’s important to have someone in your corner helping you achieve your goals. Our doctors and all staff support you on your personal journey to feel healthy and happy again.

what is the keto diet

What Is the Keto Diet and Is It Right for You?

Learn what it’s like to follow one of the most popular diets around and discover if its benefits make it worth trying for your weight loss and health goals.

The Keto, or Ketogenic, diet has become one of the most popular diets for weight loss.

It’s a low-carb diet that naturally cuts out the highly processed foods that contribute to weight gain.

The origin of the Keto diet is actually unrelated to weight loss. It was originally recommended to mimic the effects of fasting and to help treat epilepsy in the 1920’s. It fell out of practice for epilepsy treatments after effective drug therapy was developed. 

But in more recent years, it’s been the center of interest for maintaining a healthy diet, improving metabolism, and achieving weight loss goals.

The Keto diet is one of the more extreme diets out there. “Extreme” in the sense that it requires you to cut out a lot of foods to successfully adhere to it and see desired results. And being one of the more extreme diets, it can be hard to maintain

But those who do stick to the Keto diet experience meaningful health benefits and weight loss.

So let’s explore—what’s the Keto diet and is it right for you?

What kinds of foods do you eat on the Keto diet?

A low-carb diet cuts out a lot of staple foods in the American diet.

To follow the Keto diet, you have to avoid:

  • Anything with added sugar like soft drinks, juices, and candy
  • Grains like wheat, rice, cereal, bread, and pasta
  • Starchy fruits and vegetables like apples and potatoes
  • Dairy that’s high in sugar, like ice cream and some yogurts (a low sugar greek yogurt or skyr is allowed)

Instead, the Keto diet is made up of foods like:

  • Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, kale, eggplant
  • Meats like eggs, fish, chicken, pork, and steak — and there’s a big emphasis on choosing grass-fed when possible
  • Dairy products like cheese, butter, and low-sugar, plain greek yogurt
  • Nuts like almonds and walnuts
  • Oils like olive oil, coconut oil, and fish oil
  • Fruits like raspberries, grapes, and strawberries 

The high-protein and high-fat foods are great to stay full longer. But without the usual carbs as fuel, your body has to adjust. That adjustment is called Ketosis.

The Keto diet is all about getting your body to a state called “ketosis”

The name of the Keto diet actually comes from the state your body enters once you’ve adjusted to the low-carb lifestyle.

That state is called Ketosis and it occurs when the “ketones” in your body are elevated. 

Ketones are produced in your liver and help fuel your body in the absence of carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates are the usual source of immediate energy for your cells. But without them, your body uses fat to provide energy. This process involves breaking down fat and releasing ketones into your bloodstream.

Getting to this state is critical for making the keto diet a sustainable option.

Weight Loss Benefits of Keto Diet

One of the best benefits of the Keto diet is that it helps you achieve weight loss goals.

The reason it works so well is that it helps you stay in a caloric deficit by focusing on high-satiety foods in your diet. It also prevents binging on those low-satiety, but extremely high-calorie foods like chips, sweets, and soda that make it easy to exceed your ideal calorie intake each day.

By eating high-protein foods you stay full longer and curb your appetite. So most people on the diet are naturally in a caloric deficit each day.

It’s also especially useful for faster weight loss. Some studies have found that when compared to other diets, the Keto diet can prompt more weight loss in the first 6 months on the diet. But by reaching the year mark, the overall results even out. So while you won’t ultimately lose more on that diet than any other, you may lose much of the weight faster for a period of time.

Challenges and support on the Keto diet

The Keto diet isn’t an easy one to adjust to. So there are a few things to keep in mind when you start the diet so you can create a plan that helps you stick with it and reap the benefits.

Keto Flu

On the Keto diet, you’re restricted to 50 grams of carbs each day. Consuming so few carbs every day shocks your body and you go through an adjustment period.

And that adjustment time is called the “Keto flu”.

Because unfortunately, a mild flu is exactly what it feels like with symptoms like fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and headaches.

The Keto flu is the biggest hurdle to overcome when starting the diet. But most people get over the Keto flu symptoms in one or two weeks.

Additional supplements

The Keto diet is one of the more extreme diets out there. It requires you to cut out a lot of foods you’re likely used to eating and enjoy. So to make it work, there are supplements and other options for support to make sticking to the diet easier in the beginning. Especially when you haven’t yet reached the state of Ketosis.

Some supplements can help initially with reducing carb cravings–because that’s one of the hardest things to overcome. One supplement that reduces carb cravings is CarbCrave Complex. It helps to reduce cravings for sweets and carbs that you have to give up on the Keto diet.

There’s also the 7-Keto Lean supplement that makes it easier to lose weight with the Keto diet.  The supplement helps improve metabolism, promotes weight loss, and helps you get the best results from your Keto diet.

But both should only be taken exactly as recommended by a doctor.

Get the right guidance to make Keto work for you

When the Keto diet is an option for your weight loss goals, it helps to have the right guidance so you get the right plan that’s responsive to your body.

The diet may be right for you if you want to quickly drop weight and are able to overcome the first two weeks of carb cravings. It may also be great for you if you want to improve your heart health and manage your insulin levels.

But when deciding on any diet, it’s best to talk with a professional to get the best results.

That’s why our specialists help you create the right plan that includes meals, exercise, and supplements. Because we know that when you have support on your diet, you’re more likely to stick with it and see results.

7-Keto Lean

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed above for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200) – and we’ll throw in the 7-Keto Lean for FREE!

What is 7-Keto Lean?

Integrative Therapeutics 7-Keto Lean is an all-natural weight loss supplement that helps boost weight loss mainly by acting on your thyroid gland, which controls a wide range of functions in your body — one of the most notable being your metabolism.

7-Keto Lean controls your metabolism by activating certain enzymes called thermogenic enzymes, which help burn fat, increase metabolism, boost energy levels, and support your thyroid health – all of which promotes weight loss*.

Ingredients in 7-Keto Lean

The main ingredient in 7-Keto Lean is 7-Keto (its namesake) a form of DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone, a hormone that’s found naturally in the body. DHEA is made by your adrenal glands – the glands that sit right by each kidney – and your brain. As you age, your natural production of DHEA goes down, which can throw off your hormonal balance. Taking DHEA in supplemental form helps restore this balance and can boost weight loss*.

DHEA is not the only beneficial ingredient in 7-Keto Lean, though. It also includes L-tyrosine, asparagus extract, choline, inositol, copper, manganese, and iodine, which all have their own, important roles.

7-keto DHEA Acetate A safe and improved form of DHEA. Clinically shown to enhance weight loss and reduce body fat by supporting healthy thyroid function, thyroid hormone biosynthesis, and fat metabolism.  Also helps increases thermogenic enzyme activity
L-Tyrosine An essential nutrient required for thyroid hormone formation.
Asparagus Extract A potent metabolic detoxifier that supports healthy fluid balance.
Choline A nutrient involved in many important metabolic functions, including fat transport and metabolism.
Inositol Another nutrient which promotes the transport and metabolism of fat.
Copper An essential trace mineral and cofactor of enzymes involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
Manganese An essential mineral required for healthy thyroid hormone metabolism.
Iodine Another essential nutrient found in high concentrations in the thyroid gland. Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which are important in regulating cellular metabolic rate.

It DOES NOT Contain any:

  • Artificial coloring
  • Artificial flavoring
  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Preservatives
  • Salt
  • Soy
  • Sugar
  • Wheat
  • Yeast

Unlike many other metabolism-boosting supplements on the market, 7-Keto Lean doesn’t raise your heart rate or blood pressure and it will NOT keep you awake at night!

Product of the Month! Pure Encapsulations Liver GI Detox

In like a lion, out like a lamb! March is here and that means that spring and summer are right around the corner. We know what you’re thinking, it crept up on us too, but there’s still time to feel great and get in shape before we officially welcome the warmest months of the year.

As always, our monthly special includes:

Physician Consult & Weekly Weigh-ins
Meal Plans
FDA Approved Medications
MetaBlast Supplements
Craveaway Supplements
Weekly Upgraded Injection of B-12
Bi-Weekly Injection of Lipo X
Full Body Analysis on our BODYCOMP Scale

And for the special product for March: PURE ENCAPSULATIONS LIVER GI DETOX!

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed above for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200) – and we’ll throw in the Liver GI Detox for FREE!

At this point, you may be thinking “What is Liver GI Detox and how can it help me get summer ready?” We’re glad you asked!

Your liver is one of your body’s major detoxification pathways. It cleans and filters your blood, breaking down substances like ammonia, alcohol, chemicals, medications, and metabolic waste products, so that your body can eliminate them.

Your gastrointestinal (or GI) tract is another major pathway for detoxification. It allows you to absorb the good stuff (like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals) and then prepares the waste products for excretion (we won’t go into further detail here, but you can probably guess what we’re talking about).

When either of these detoxification pathways isn’t working properly, toxic waste can accumulate in your body. Over this, this toxic buildup can actually stall your weight loss. The Pure Encapsulations Liver-GI Detox helps to stimulate both liver and gastrointestinal detoxification so that your body is properly removing toxins as it should. The supplement contains N–acetyl–l–cysteine and alpha lipoic acid — two antioxidants that help bind heavy metals and boost the production of glutathione (another antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage). The supplement also contains:

  • Sulforaphane — a compound that comes from broccoli sprouts and helps maintain healthy colon function.
  • Glycine, taurine, and methionine — amino acids that help neutralize toxins.
  • L–Glutamine — an amino acid that helps you absorb nutrients and keeps your intestinal tract healthy.
  • Artichoke extract — promotes healthy flow of bile, supports liver cells and blood flow in the liver, and helps move things along the digestive tract for elimination.
  • Chlorella — a green “superfood” that helps clean and purify the blood.

Super HCA

Product of the Month! Douglas Laboratories Super HCA (Garcinia Cambogia)

Can you believe May has already arrived? The time is going by fast, but the good news is that a new month means a new product to go with our monthly special — and this month it’s an extremely powerful one.

As always, our monthly special includes:

Physician Consult & Weekly Weigh-ins
Meal Plans
FDA Approved Medications
MetaBlast Supplements
Craveaway Supplements
Weekly Upgraded Injection of B-12
Bi-Weekly Injection of Lipo X
Full Body Analysis on our BODYCOMP Scale

And for the special product for March: DOUGLAS LABORATORIES SUPER HCA

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed above for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200) – and we’ll throw in the Super HCA for FREE!

Of course, we wouldn’t leave you hanging without letting you know exactly what Super HCA is and why you need it TODAY.

Each tablet of Super HCA provides 1,400 milligrams of Garcinia Cambogia extract, which comes from a tropical fruit grown in several Asian rainforest areas. Each tablet yields 60% hydroxycitric acid, or HCA, the active ingredient in the fruit’s rind. In studies, HCA has been shown to reduce appetite, boost the body’s ability to burn fat, and prevent the excessive conversion of glucose (sugar) from carbohydrates into body fat. It does this by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. HCA has also been shown to raise levels of serotonin in the brain, which can make you feel less hungry.

Unlike many commonly used diet supplements, HCA is not a central nervous system stimulant, so it won’t leave you feeling wired or jittery.

Product of the Month

This month our product of the month is Lipotropic Complex by Integrative Therapeutics!

Most environmental toxins and hormones are fat-soluble, which means that they’re stored in your fat cells. All of these toxins are filtered through the liver, and since the liver is largely made up of fat, a large majority become stored in the liver with nowhere to go. As you’re losing weight, or when you’re doing a cleanse or a detox, the liver often needs additional nutritional support to properly move these toxins from the body. Lipotropic Complex provides this extra support for the liver, which translates to a host of benefits for you, including:

  • A boost in weight loss*
  • A reduction in inflammation (which can decrease pain)*
  • Improved carbohydrate metabolism*
  • Lowered cholesterol levels and decreased accumulation of fat in the liver, heart, arteries, and brain*
  • Improved mood*
  • Regulated appetite*
  • Increased energy*

Lipotropic complex can also help regulate liver function, aid in the treatment of depression, and support healthy growth and metabolism.* It’s loaded with beneficial active ingredients, including vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, magnesium, choline, black radish, dandelion, beet root extract, and ox bile extract, and inositol. These active ingredients work together to make Lipotropic Complex one of the most potent and effective liver-flushing supplements available.

If you have any questions about Lipotropic Complex or you want to take advantage of our monthly special, contact us TODAY! You can also try Lipotropic Complex on its own by ordering here.

Mango-Plex bottle

Product of the Month! Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone

February may be the shortest month of the year, but there’s still plenty of time for you to crush your weight loss goals. We do want to make life a little easier for you, though, by offering one of our best selling supplements – Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone – as our FREE product of the month with our monthly special.

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed below for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200)!

Physician Consult & Weekly Weigh-ins Meal Plans FDA Approved Medications Meta-Blast Supplements Crave-away Supplements Weekly Upgraded Injection of B-12 Bi-Weekly Injection of Lipo X Full Body Analysis on our BODYCOMP Scale

Plus, the product of the month ABSOLUTELY FREE!

There is a reason Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone is one of the top selling supplements here at Valley Medical. It’s loaded with beneficial ingredients, including African mango seed, green tea, green coffee bean, and the star of the show: raspberry ketones. Raspberry ketones get a lot of attention for their ability to boost metabolism and support weight loss*, but many people are not entirely sure what they are or how they work, so we’re here to clarify.

What Are They?

Raspberry ketones are natural substances that give raspberries their smell. Cranberries, kiwis, and blueberries also contain small amounts of raspberry ketones, but as the name implies (or rather states outright), the concentration is highest in raspberries. Raspberry ketones are used in small amounts in some processed foods as a natural flavor, but are also used in higher doses in weight loss supplements, like Mango-Plex.

How Do They Work?

Researchers became interested in raspberry ketones as a weight loss supplement when they noticed that the molecular structure was similar to that of two other substances already known to boost metabolism: capsaicin and synephrine. Because the structure was so similar, researchers concluded that raspberry ketones would work in the same way as these two metabolism-boosting supplements. Then they set out to test that theory.

The Science

Researchers’ suspicions were backed up when a 2010 animal study reported that raspberry ketones can help increase the breakdown of fat and stimulate the release of adiponectin, a hormone that helps boost metabolism and regulate blood sugar levels. In most cases, thinner people have higher adiponectin levels than people who are overweight. On the other hand, low levels of adiponectin are associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Summary of Benefits

  • Aids in weight loss by increasing metabolism*
  • Lowers cholesterol levels due to the high fiber content helping to remove bad cholesterol*
  • Improves diabetes control by enhancing metabolic pathways linked to insulin resistance*
  • Regulates blood pressure by affecting the blood vessels*
  • Can have anti-cancer potential*
  • May have antibacterial properties*

If you’re interested in seeing what raspberry ketones – paired with several other metabolism-boosting ingredients – can do for you, take advantage of our February monthly special by coming in to either of our locations. No appointment necessary!

Product of the Month

This month, for our product of the month, we’re offering CarbCrave Complex with Sensoril®Trim by Pure Encapsulations. CarbCrave Complex is designed to help curb excessive carbohydrate intake and to help moderate appetite by supporting healthy brain chemistry and mood.*

The active ingredients in CarbCrave Complex include:

  • Chromium Picolinate – helps balance blood sugar and control carbohydrate cravings.
  • 5-HTP – a precursor for serotonin, the same neurotransmitter released by the consumption of carbohydrates. Serotonin is thought to be responsible for increased mood – which is why people, especially those under stress, tend to crave carbohydrates.
  • DL-Phenylalanine – supports dopamine and epinephrine production, which are two neurotransmitters responsible for increased well-being.
  • Relora (which is a proprietary blend of magnolia extract and phellodendron extract) – Like chromium picolinate, Relora® helps decrease carbohydrate cravings and leads to a healthier intake of carbohydrates in adults. In one study involving 49 volunteers prone to eating under stress, Relora® helped reduce stress- related snacking of sweets by 76%.
  • Sensoril® Trim Ashwagandha – promotes relaxation and maintains healthy cortisol levels, which helps support glucose and fat metabolism. Ashwagandha also helps improve the body’s response to stress and fatigue.
  • Pyridoxal 5’Phosphate (or activated vitamin B-6) – a vital component in the synthesis of neurotransmitters.*

One serving of the Skip-a-Meal replacement shakes provides only 192 calories and at least 30% (in some cases, it provides 35%) of each of these vitamins and minerals: vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, vitamin D, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, vitamin B-12, biotin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, and copper. So if you’re drinking the meal replacement three times a day, you don’t have to worry about getting the nutrients you need.

A single serving of the shake also provides 24 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber but only 2 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fat. The even better news? One tub contains 15 servings and you get it FREE when you sign up for our monthly special. Choose from vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.

Product of the Month

This month, for our product of the month, we’re offering CarbCrave Complex with Sensoril®Trim by Pure Encapsulations. CarbCrave Complex is designed to help curb excessive carbohydrate intake and to help moderate appetite by supporting healthy brain chemistry and mood.*

The active ingredients in CarbCrave Complex include:

  • Chromium Picolinate – helps balance blood sugar and control carbohydrate cravings.
  • 5-HTP – a precursor for serotonin, the same neurotransmitter released by the consumption of carbohydrates. Serotonin is thought to be responsible for increased mood – which is why people, especially those under stress, tend to crave carbohydrates.
  • DL-Phenylalanine – supports dopamine and epinephrine production, which are two neurotransmitters responsible for increased well-being.
  • Relora (which is a proprietary blend of magnolia extract and phellodendron extract) – Like chromium picolinate, Relora® helps decrease carbohydrate cravings and leads to a healthier intake of carbohydrates in adults. In one study involving 49 volunteers prone to eating under stress, Relora® helped reduce stress- related snacking of sweets by 76%.
  • Sensoril® Trim Ashwagandha – promotes relaxation and maintains healthy cortisol levels, which helps support glucose and fat metabolism. Ashwagandha also helps improve the body’s response to stress and fatigue.
  • Pyridoxal 5’Phosphate (or activated vitamin B-6) – a vital component in the synthesis of neurotransmitters.*

Product of the Month! Integrative Therapeutics 7-Keto Lean

It’s a NEW month, so you know what that means – a new product to go along with our monthly special, which includes:

Physician Consult & Weekly Weigh-ins
Meal Plans
FDA Approved Medications
MetaBlast Supplements
Craveaway Supplements
Weekly Upgraded Injection of B-12
Bi-Weekly Injection of Lipo X
Full Body Analysis on our BODYCOMP Scale

And for April: INTEGRATIVE THERAPEUTICS 7-KETO LEAN!

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed above for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200) – and we’ll throw in the 7-Keto Lean for FREE!

Integrative Therapeutics 7-Keto Lean is an all-natural weight loss supplement that helps boost weight loss mainly by acting on your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland is responsible for so many functions in your body – your metabolism being one of the major ones.

7-Keto Lean activates certain enzymes called thermogenic enzymes. These enzymes help burn fat, increase metabolism, boost energy levels, and support your thyroid health – all which promotes weight loss.

The main ingredient in 7-Keto Lean is 7-Keto (hence the name) a form of DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone. DHEA is a hormone that’s found naturally in the body. It’s made by your adrenal glands – the glands that sit right by each kidney – and your brain. As you age, your natural production of DHEA goes down, which can throw off your hormonal balance. Taking DHEA in supplemental form helps restore this balance and can boost weight loss.

In addition to DHEA, 7-Keto Lean also contains

  • Iodine
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Parsley Leaf Powder
  • L-Tyrosine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • Inositol

It DOES NOT Contain any:

  • Artificial coloring
  • Artificial flavoring
  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Preservatives
  • Salt
  • Soy
  • Sugar
  • Wheat
  • Yeast

Unlike many other metabolism-boosting supplements on the market, 7-Keto Lean doesn’t raise your heart rate or blood pressure and it will NOT keep you awake at night!

If you’re interested in taking advantage of this special offer and signing up for our monthly special, drop in or call us at either one of our locations to find out more!

lipotropic injections

How Lipotropic Injections Help You Lose Weight

Two of the questions our clients ask 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 Lipotropic Injections

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

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

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 Lipotropic 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 breaks 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.

If lipotropic injections sound like something you may be interested in, give us a call at any of our locations. We would be happy to talk to you and answer any of your questions. If you’re already sold, come on in and see us whenever is convenient for you! No appointments necessary.

raspberry ketone

Raspberry Ketones: What Can They Do For You?

Our featured product this month – Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone – is one of the top selling supplements here at Valley Medical. This supplement contains loads of beneficial ingredients with everything from African mango seed to green tea to green coffee bean. But the ingredient that really stands out – and its namesake – is the raspberry ketones.

Ketone (or lovingly shortened to keto) is a big buzzword right now as everyone is starting to catch on to just how great ketones can make you feel. Although you can naturally produce ketones in your body by following a very low carbohydrate keto diet, exogenous (or supplemental) ketones also have huge benefits.

What Are Raspberry Ketones?

Raspberry ketones are natural substances that give raspberries their smell. Cranberries, kiwis, and blueberries also contain small amounts of raspberry ketones, but the concentration is highest in raspberries, as the name not-so-subtly points out. Raspberry ketones are used in small amounts in some processed foods as a natural flavor, but they’re being used in higher doses in many weight loss supplements, including Mango-Plex.

How Do They Work?

Researchers became interested in raspberry ketones as a weight loss supplement when they noticed that the molecular structure was similar to that of two other substances already known to boost metabolism: capsaicin and synephrine. Because the structure was so similar, researchers concluded that raspberry ketones would work in the same way as these two metabolism-boosting supplements. Then they set out to test that theory.

The Science

Researchers’ suspicions were backed up when a 2010 animal study reported that raspberry ketones can help increase the breakdown of fat and stimulate the release of adiponectin, a hormone that helps boost metabolism and regulate blood sugar levels. In most cases, thinner people have higher adiponectin levels than people who are overweight. On the other hand, research links low levels of adiponectin to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Other Possible Benefits of Mango-Plex include:

  • lowered cholesterol levels*
  • improved diabetes control and insulin resistance*
  • regulated blood pressure*
  • anti-cancer and antibacterial benefits*
