MIC Lipotropic Fat Burning Injections

These injections are also called Lipotropic or “Fat Burner” shots. In regard to weight loss injections, these are by far the most popular. These injections are formulated with 3 individual fat burners (Methionine, Inositol and Choline) that work well together to help the waist line reduce in size. The first ingredient is methionine, which is an amino acid that is effective in helping to break down fat and prevent the build-up of fat stores. Methionine is an ideal supplementation for those that do not consume sufficient amounts of protein or may consume alcohol. The second ingredient is inositol. This is a simple carbohydrate and has many important benefits including supporting the transporting of fat. This is important as a deficiency in inositol can cause the accumulation of fat. Inositol also helps to reduce the amount of fat stored in the liver. The third ingredient is choline which is often included in the Vitamin B family which aids in the movement of fats and is considered to be an effective fat burner by experts. This is essential since choline is safe and effective in supporting weight loss naturally. Using these 3 effective ingredients helps you burn fat and lose weight. Active B12 (Methylcoblamin) can also be added to MIC to enhance the fat burning properties and boost energy. We recommend a single injection one time per week.

Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Carnitine (“GAC”) Weight Loss Injections

The GAC injections contain three amino acids: Glutamine, L-Arginine and L-Carnitine. This powerful triad has been used to help enhance fat metabolism, promote lean muscle mass and used as a boost to any weight loss program or healthy diet and exercise regiment. This cocktail is best used prior to exercise to increase performance. GAC may also be helpful in hormone balance, stimulating a higher metabolic rate, improving mood, improving energy and increasing blood flow.

For patients who may not be a candidate for the GAC injections, L-Carnitine can be done as a single intramuscular injection. L- Carnitine is involved in transport of fat across the mitochondrial cell membrane (the ‘powerhouse’ for energy production) and enhance fat metabolism while sparing muscle breakdown. It has been used in part with many weight loss programs to enhance weight loss goals.

L- Carnitine Benefits:
• Increase androgen receptors in muscles, helping tissues to use testosterone
• Involved in transport of fat across the mitochondrial cell to make energy
• Enhance fat metabolism while sparing muscle breakdown
• Increasing energy

Glutamine Benefits:
• Fuel source for muscles when being stressed
• Reduce risk of muscle loss
• Aids in recovery of muscles
• Repair of gut tissues
• Preferred source of energy for the brain

L-Arginine Benefits:
• Increase body’s protein and growth hormone
• Combine with exercise has a stronger effect on production of growth hormone
• Build muscles
• Aid in nitric oxide to improve blood flow
• Increase delivery of nutrients in the body
• May aid in erectile dysfunction

The GAC or L-Carnitine injections can be an integral part of your weight loss journey to give you an extra boost in metabolism and energy and help promote lean muscle mass and encourage a leaner body composition.
