What is LIPO-C

LIPO-C refers to a mixture of several vitamins and nutrients that may be used in conjunction with a weight loss regimen.

The combination of lipotropic injections (LIPO-C) and semaglutide can lead to more effective weight loss and less intensive side effects. For some patients, this combination may be a more effective and helpful alternative to commercial weight loss medications.  Generally, the ingredients for LIPO-C include:

  • Methionine – An essential amino acid plays a key role in metabolism.
    • It aids in the breakdown of fats by both preventing their accumulation in the arteries aiding the digestive system and facilitating the elimination of heavy metals from the body, which can be converted into cysteine to prevent toxic damage in the liver.
    • It may help protect the body from damage caused by ionizing radiation ( coming from medical devices, baggage X-ray machines, heat from the sun, microwaves, etc.). It may detoxify harmful substances in the body, such as heavy metals. It may also prevent liver damage from acetaminophen poisoning which is responsible for 56,000 emergency department visits, 2,600 hospitalizations, and 500 deaths per year in the United States.
  • Inositol – May help with weight loss, improve blood lipids and small reductions in blood
  • Choline – Choline is a macronutrient that’s important for liver function, normal brain development, nerve function, muscle movement, supporting energy levels and maintaining a healthy metabolism to support weight loss.
  • Vitamin B12

The first three ingredients, often referred to as MIC, all contribute to weight loss. Other common ingredients include vitamin B-6, vitamin B complex, L-carnitine, phentermine and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCSSs).

What is the impact of a lipotropic injection?

It is crucial that you understand these injections are not a magical treatment. Weight loss still boils down to consuming fewer calories than your body burns. There are several benefits from these injections which include the following:

Reduces Stored Fat

The most direct way lipotropic shots work for weight loss is the reduction of stored fat. These injections have several things going for them that allow this to happen. The active ingredients in the injections keep your liver healthy and processing fat efficiently. They help your body preserve metabolically active lean muscle mass. Most importantly, they tell your body to burn fat for fuel once glycogen stores are depleted.

Boosts Metabolism to Improve Fat Burning

One of the four primary ingredients in lipotropic injections is L-Methionine. This is one of eight critical amino acids necessary for adequate protein building. However, your body cannot produce this itself. Among the critical functions performed by this amino acid is the processing and elimination of fat. If you’re not getting enough L-Methionine in your diet, we strongly recommend lipotropic shots.

Elevates Energy Levels

Elevate your energy

One of the primary ways lipotropic injections work for weight loss is by keeping your energy levels high and support your metabolic functions. Whether you’re following a rigorous workout routine or a very low-calorie diet, there’s a good chance that you will feel sluggish if you sustain rapid weight-loss diet.

Choline Enhances Liver and Gallbladder Function

While choline is produced in your liver, your body cannot produce it in sufficient quantities. Choline plays a critical role in gallbladder and liver function. 

Protect liver and gallbladder

Keeping these organs healthy plays a massive role in your weight loss success because they help your body process and flush out fat. In fact, an unhealthy gallbladder can lead to several medical conditions, with weight gain one of the most common symptoms.

Preserves Lean Body Mass

The preservation of lean body mass is also crucial when you’re trying to lose weight. Muscle is roughly four times more metabolically active than white fat, the type of fat that makes up the vast majority of your fat stores. In other words, at rest, a pound of muscle might burn four calories per hour while a pound of white fat might burn two calories per hour at rest.

Lipotropic shots help you preserve your lean body mass in a couple of ways. First, they tell your body to burn fat for fuel rather than breaking down your muscles. Second, they boost your energy levels so you can continue to be physically active and prevent the atrophy of your muscles.

Acts Rapidly

Fast Action

A lipotropic mixture acts faster and works more efficiently than taking oral supplements. Delivered straight to your bloodstream, you do not need to wait hours, as when you take oral supplements, for your body to absorb the nutrients and no nutrients are lost during the digestion process.

Allows for Optimal Nutrient Absorption

All four of the featured (listed above) active ingredients in lipotropic injections help organs, like your liver, function properly. When the body isn’t spending too much time defending itself from toxins, it has more time to spend on digestion.

With weekly lipotropic shots, you will benefit from more efficient nutrient absorption through your diet. As importantly, the shots themselves allow for a 100% absorption rate because none of the nutrients are lost during the digestion process; a common problem with taking oral supplements.

Improves Liver Detoxification

Another crucial role of L-Methionine is the production of taurine and cysteine. These chemical compounds are critical for supporting your liver’s ability to eliminate toxins. When your liver isn’t working as hard to detoxify your body, more of its energy can be devoted to eliminating fat from your body.

Improves Mood and Mental Clarity

Vitamin B12 helps boost your mental clarity. Moreover, a vitamin B12 deficiency makes it harder for hemoglobin to transport oxygen to your brain. A low level of oxygen in the brain will cause feelings of fatigue, lethargy and an inability to focus on routine tasks. Inositol and choline have also been shown to improve mood and mental clarity while on a very low-calorie diet.
