Vitamin B-12 helps maintain good health and has been shown to be beneficial in helping to reduce stress, fatigue, improve memory and cardiovascular health and maintain a good body weight. It can also assist the body in converting proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy and is necessary for healthy skin and eyes. Injections of the vitamin have been used to improve metabolism to aid in weight loss, enhance energy and even to cure a hangover! People respond to B-12 injections differently with some people seeing improvements and others experiencing only slight differences. There are no known side effects to the injections and our clinicians will conduct a thorough consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for a B-12 regimen.
B12 Injections are $25 per injection.
The Skinny Shot: Injection of B12 + MIC
Vitamin B12 boosts metabolism & energy levels. MIC (Methionine Inositol Choline) are lipotropic amino acids that breakdown fat!
Methionine is an amino acid that reduces fat, aids in lowering cholesterol, and helps synthesize other amino acids needed by the body. It is also one of the nutrients required for the body to produce choline. A deficiency of methionine will adversely affect fat metabolism by limiting choline production. The body cannot produce methionine-it must be supplied through diet and supplementation.
Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol and helps transport fats in the blood system. Thus, inositol can aid in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels by moving cholesterol to the liver where it can be excreted. A deficiency of inositol produces an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver, which impairs normal liver function and can lead to weight gain. The body is able to manufacture its own supply of inositol.
Choline works in combination with inositol and emulsifies cholesterol so that it does not settle on arterial walls. It also works with methionine to detoxify the by-products of protein metabolism. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver and block metabolic functions. The body can produce choline, with the help of vitamin B-12, folic acid and methionine. However, the rate your body produces choline may not be adequate to meet daily metabolic needs, particularly during weight loss when a lot of body fat must be broken down.
When Vitamin B12 & MIC are combined into one injection & given at regular intervals (1 per week) it may help you lose weight!
