Lipotropic injections are a class of natural ingredients that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. The main ingredients used to make these injections are Methionine, Choline and Inositol. We recommend (2) injections every 4-7 days for best results.
Methionine is a naturally occurring amino acid which acts as a lipotropic agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in the body. Methionine also helps prevent or relieve fatigue and aids in prevention of skin and nail problems. Moreover, the amino acid methionine is also a great antioxidant as the sulfur it supplies inactivates free radicals. Studies seem to show benefits for patients with depression, arthritis, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, and chronic liver disease. Other reported benefits include improvement of skin tone and skin elasticity.
Choline is also part of the vitamin B family. It aids the utilization of fats in the body and supports weight loss. Choline assists in the emulsification of fats and cholesterol in the body by helping to form smaller fat globules in the blood and aiding the transport of fats through smaller channels out of the cells, decongesting the liver of excessive fats. Choline is also helpful for fatigue because when choline is depleted in the body, fat metabolism and utilization may be decreased.
Inositol is part of the vitamin B complex. As a mild lipotropic agent, it aids in weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body. Inositol is also vital for hair growth, and as a component of lecithin helps to prevent high cholesterol and the hardening of the arteries caused by cholesterol buildup. It has also been said to have a calming effect on the nervous system.
LIPO-DEN MAX, our most popular injection, combines Methylcobalamin B12 with Pyridoxine B6 and Carnitine. Methylcobalamin B12 is the most potent form of vitamin B12 found in nature. We need methylcobalamin for the healthy development and sustenance of our circulatory, immune and nervous systems. Methylcobalamin is the only active form of vitamin B12 in the brain outside the mitochondrion. Pyridoxine B6 is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid and the absorption of fats and protein. Pyridoxine aids in maintaining sodium and potassium balance, hence is beneficial in controlling water retention.
LIPO-DEN has added Carnitine (L) which makes it even more effective in breaking down fat. Carnitine is the nutrient responsible for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the energy-producing centers of the cells (mitochondria). It helps the body convert fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities throughout the body.
