B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble essential vitamin that is crucial for many vital metabolic and hormonal functions including the production of enzymes and carrying important nutrients in and out of cells. Due to how it helps convert and synthesize many other compounds within the body, its needed for well over 100 daily functions. Vitamin B12 deficiency is believed to be one of the most predominant nutrient deficiencies in the world. Common symptoms B12 deficiency symptoms include fatigue and weakness, poor moods and low concentration. Why choose shots over taking an oral supplement? Because the B12 in the shots are ALWAYS absorbed because they bypass the GI tract and go directly into your subcutaneous tissues and muscles. With oral supplements you are only able to get out what you absorb in the GI tract. B12 is essential in the metabolism of fatty acids and proteins. Fatty acids are important in the body because that is where energy is stored.  A deficiency of leads to inefficient use of energy. Several diseases can contribute to deficient levels of B12 by inhibiting ability to absorb it (Crohn’s and Celiac) or simply having low stomach acid (associated with aging and increased stress). Vegetarians and vegans are at higher risk of B12 deficiency. 

B12 (Methylcobalamin): Menthylcobalamin is an essential nutrient known as vitamin B12. The vitamin B12 is fundamental in many biological processes, many of which are important to the survival of the organism. Vitamin B12 is involved in processes including DNA synthesis, fatty acid and amino acid metabolism.

B12 is purported by its users and practitioners to help speed up overall metabolic processes and create a greater feeling of overall energy and well-being. Individuals may be deficient in vitamin B12, these individuals must supplement B12. Deficiency is present for a variety of reasons including dietary deficiency and poor dietary absorption. The human body is incapable of producing vitamin B12 on its own, B12 must be consumed in the diet. Consumption of vitamin B-12 may be an effective agent to speed up metabolism, especially if the individual has a deficiency.

B12 and sleep: lack of sleep is well known, and proven, to cause weight gain and blood sugar issues. 

You probably also didn't know that Vitamin B12 actually improves your circadian rhythm and helps the depth and quality of your sleep. It's worth pointing out that the study above showed that methylcobalamin and NOT cyanocobalamin helped improve the quality of sleep.

Weight Loss Injections

MIC (methionine, inositol, choline) also known as lipotropic injections are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits. Lipotropic, or fat burning substances include: inositol, which helps the liver remove fat; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body; and methionine, which is similar to inositol, but also amplifies the combination. Injections can be administered up to twice a week, and vitamin B-12 is purported by practitioners and users to help accelerate metabolic processes, while creating a greater feeling of overall energy. Sometimes called Lipo B or lipo or lipotropic injection, this is a mixture of compounds that may aid in the reduction of adipose tissue (fat). The mixture of compounds individually may be effective, however in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic (fat breakdown) activity than when administered alone. Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation, this is due to the increased bioavailability, you will get all of the nutrients injected compared to oral medications where you only get what you can absorb.

These lipotropic agents are structurally and functionally closely related to the B-vitamins, or are involved in the homeostasis of energy production from fat. The non-vitamin compounds (MIC) that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and provide the needed metabolic environment of the body for a fatty acid (fat) mobilization and utilization.

Lipotropic compounds are used to increase the potential for release of fat deposits in some parts of the body. 

The lipotropic agents included in this injection are:

Methionine: Methionine helps the liver maintain the optimal ability to process fatty acids. Methionine is a major constituent of S-adenosylmethionine, which has been shown to be associated in genetic regulation and activation of certain genes. Methionine contributes to methyl donation to histones that activate certain genetic processes that may be involved in the increase in lean tissue. Although indirectly linked to lipolysis (breakdown of fats to release fatty acids), it is believed that the increase in lean tissue increases resting metabolic rate, therefore increasing the overall required calories that must be obtained from storage or dietary intake. Methionine, via S-adenosylmethionine, has been shown to increase CNS activity, therefore increasing the caloric requirements required by the CNS. The downstream effects of this may ultimately lead to increased caloric requirements for the entire body. 

One way MIC directly impacts your metabolism is because B12 & Inositol are involved in the mitochondrial production of energy. And your metabolism depends upon your mitochondria. Your mitochondria produce most of the energy in your body. This energy is then released as heat through daily living such as breathing, eating, sleeping and moving. The more energy you burn at rest the higher your metabolism will be and the more calories you will burn.

 Inositol : Inositol is a sugar-like molecule, referred to as a sugar alcohol. Even though very similar in molecular structure to glucose, this molecule does not exhibit the same traits that simple carbohydrates do. Contrary to simple carbohydrates, this sugar alcohol has been shown to not actively increase adipose (fat) storage. In fact, Inositol has been found to decrease fatty acid synthase activity, a multi-enzyme protein that catalyzes fatty acid synthesis. This set of enzymes ultimately enables the body to produce triglycerides fat molecules that reside in adipose tissue (body fat).

Inositol may be effective in reducing insulin resistance, a common condition associated with increase adiposity (body fat). Insulin resistance, a condition to which your body becomes resistant to the activities of the hormone insulin. This condition leads to excess blood glucose levels and a host of symptoms and dysfunctions. A chemical called Inositol phosphoglycan is known to regulate the body’s sensitivity to insulin signaling. Inositol phosphoglycan structurally incorporates Inositol, thus inositol is required for this molecule to exert its regulating behavior.

The proper functioning and sensitivity to insulin is found in most healthy individuals, and is essential in maintaining overall health. Excessive exposure to blood glucose ultimately leads to insulin resistance and poor nutrient transport. Inositol may be effective in reducing this condition while at the same time reducing fatty acid (fat) synthesis.

Choline: Choline is a simple molecule usually classified as a B vitamin. The B vitamin class is usually involved in the generation of energy and support of metabolism. Choline is an important precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is involved in a host of activities, one of which includes muscular function and contraction. Acetylcholine is a fundamental neurotransmitter that enables the communication between neurons. Increased neural communication results in increased CNS activity which ultimately leads to increased energy expenditure. Energy expenditure requires nutrient input, either from stored energy (fat), or dietary nutrients. Choline exists in a delicate balance and homeostasis with methionine and folate. When these nutrients are not in balance adverse health effects may be present. Along with the increase in CNS activity comes increased cognitive ability, reported by many users. Choline may be effective as a nootropic, or a substance with ability to increase cognition. Increased neural cognition is thought to be due to choline’s role as a precursor to acetylcholine.

Improved Liver Detoxification- Your liver is required to get rid of pretty much everything you come into contact with on a daily basis. Even your own hormones must be metabolized through the liver for proper elimination. Certain nutrient deficiencies, like choline, are required for optimal phase I and phase II elimination pathways in the liver.These are the same pathways that help you metabolize certain medications, nutrients and hormones. A reduction in the efficiency of these pathways means you will have a build up of endocrine disruptors and other chemicals that act on hormonal receptors in your body. These endocrine disruptors can lead to hormone imbalances like hypothyroidism and weight gain, so it is critical that you take care of them ASAP. Choline is involved in these pathways. That means that taking choline can help boost your detox and help you get rid of these endocrine disruptors.

The supplementation of choline has also been shown to reduce serum and urinary carnitine. The reduction of carnitine in these fluids may indicate carnitine has been partitioned in tissues that utilize it as a fatty acid mitochondrial transport. When carnitine is used in the mitochondria it transports fatty acids to the location which they are broken down and used as energy. It has also been reported that molecular fragments of fat have been found in urine after carnitine and choline supplementation, which may be due to incomplete fatty acid oxidation and the removal of the subsequent byproducts. This means, choline supplementation may increase the utilization of carnitine and increase the removal of fatty acids, even though all fatty acids are not burned as energy. The fragments of fatty acids not burned as energy are extruded in the urine as molecular fragments.

Another huge benefit to using MIC + B12 shots is that they can improve your mood AND concentration.  Nowadays so many people suffer from the symptoms of depression or just feeling "down" that it's almost considered normal. It is NOT normal to feel depressed and it is NOT normal to feel down. These feelings are almost always an early indicator of something wrong inside of your body, usually nutrient deficiencies or hormone imbalances. B12 shots have been shown to  improve mood if used by themselves or in combination with other medications.
