For those who are seeking aid in their battle for weight loss, Skin and Body Refinery’s health and wellness service has a few methods that can help. One of the supplements that we provide to assist weight loss is Lipotropic Injections, or better known to most as B12 injections. Skin and Body Refinery will share how B12 injections help and assist in weight loss for those who may be considering using Lipotropic Injections.

How Do Lipotropic Injections Work?

Lipotropic Injection or B12 injections are designed to help assist and accelerate weight loss. However, exercise and diet is still needed to get the full benefits of the B12 injection. Those who are obese or overweight and are having a hard time with weight loss have had great success with B12 injections.

What Do Lipotropic Injections Contain?

Lipotropic injection contains amino acids, minerals, and vitamins; typically the B vitamins that are know to help increase energy and metabolism or in other words, burn fat. Here is the break down of the different agents that may be found in lipotropic injections.
Choline – Choline is responsible for reducing fat found within the liver and gall bladder. Choline metabolizes the fat found in these areas and then sends it through the blood stream. In short, your body fat is reduced and the metabolism will begin to speed up.
Inositol – Inositol helps regulate serotonin as well as insulin levels. To put it more simple, inositol will help make insulin as well as help reduce hunger. Insulin is considered a growth hormone, which can deplete during weight loss.
Vitamins B12 and B6 – The B vitamins don’t just help stabilize mood. They also help increase energy. These two B vitamins also aid the lipid metabolism, which again increases your body’s ability to burn and shed fat. Many struggle with their energy levels during weight loss, typically due to restricted calories. To help give a patient more energy, the B vitamins are essential.
Methionine – Methionine is an amino acid and antioxidant which assists the body in breaking down fat cells and molecules.

Benefits of Lipotropic Injections

Lipotropic injections do assist in weight loss as well as provide many other health benefits. Lipotropic injections help prevent excess water retention, control estrogen levels, and even contribute to healthy nails and skin. However, lipotropic injections aren’t a lifetime supplement for weight loss or its other health benefits. Additionally, lipotropic injections aren’t used to magically melt fat off. Diet, and if possible exercise, will be needed to receive the full affect and benefits of lipotropic injections. Some of the benefits of using injections versus pills or powder forms of B12 supplements are that the injections enter directly into the blood stream. No waste occurs and you receive the full effect of the supplement.
