Vitamins & Injections

Vitamin B12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 (cyanocobalamin) injections have become frequently used in weight loss settings. B-12 is an important micronutrient that plays a part in many roles in the body as it is essential for normal blood formation and neurologic function.
In adults, the recommended dietary allowance is 2.4µg. Medications such as proton pump inhibitors and metformin may decrease the absorption of dietary B12. The elderly and patients who have had gastric bypass surgery or intestinal resection are at risk for pernicious anemia; anemia influenced by B12 deficiency.
Deficiency can be identified on complete blood count, a blood test that is performed right in the office. These patients should receive B12 replacement injections every month.
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.
Lipo-B Injections
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.
The Lipo-B is a combination of Vitamin B-12 (cyanocobalamin), choline, methionine, and inositol. The injections can be administered every 2 weeks and can be used with weight loss medications and B12 injections. Choline is required for creating and releasing acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, and is a precursor to making cell membrane components and platelet activating factor, and lipid and cholesterol, and homocysteine metabolism, which play a role in cardiovascular health.
Methionine is an essential amino acid that plays many diverse roles in the body. With modern advancement the use of methionine is now being evaluated in colon cancer and many psychiatric conditions including depression and anxiety. Inositol is an important part of a messenger system used by several noradrenergic, serotonergic, and cholinergic receptors. It is known to improve the action of insulin, decrease androgen levels, and improve ovulatory function in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Contains nutrients that are compounds that promote the flow of fat & bile to and from the liver. They produce a decongesting effect on the liver and promote improved liver function for fat metabolism. Lipotropic substances decrease the deposit or increase the removal of fats within the liver.
The injections can be administered every 2 weeks and can be used with weight loss medications and B12 injections.
INGREDIENTS
Inositol (50mg): It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It also participates in the action of serotonin. A neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Choline (50mg): It is present in the body of all living cells and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin. It is associated with the utilization of fats and cholesterol in the body. It prevents fats from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats into the cells. It is essential for the health of the liver and kidneys.
Dexpanthenol and Pyridoxine (25mg): code name for Vitamin B5 and B6 which play a role in metabolism by breaking down fats and carbohydrates for energy. The more protein intake, the more B6 is required for digestion. Vitamin B5 is critical in the manufacture of red blood cells and is important in maintaining a healthy digestive system.
Hydroxocobolamin (500mcg): A unique form of Vitamin B12 that is longer acting and provides the essential building blocks for normal fatty acid and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in fatigue, cognitive impairment, neuropathies and sleep disorders.
The injections can be administered every 2 weeks and can be used with weight loss medications and B12 injections.
Chromium Picolinate(25mcg) “The blood sugar nutrient” Promotes normal insulin function. Helps metabolize fat, and turn protein into muscle allowing conversion of sugar to energy.
L-Carnitine (25mg): Assists in the transport of fat through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria with the cell, where the fats are oxidized into energy. It also accelerates the rate of ketone production that has both a protein sparing effect and appetite suppressing effect.
