In individuals who do not have a clinical B12 deficiency, B12 injections can provide increased energy and improved mood. Patients frequently report they feel better overall and it had produced a positive effect.
B12 injections are very affordable and can be administered weekly.
Lipotropic compounds, like those found in our Lipo-B injection, increase the rate that fat is broken down during metabolism in the body. These nutrients are important to maintain a healthy liver by removing fats and bile from the liver that can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer.
