Lipotropic Injections

Radiance Medspa

A lipotropic injection contains a solution essential nutrients which are made up of one or more of the following compounds – inositol, choline, amino acids, methionine, vitamin B12 and other minerals and vitamins. They are typically suitable for anyone looking to maintain or lose their weight as well as to prevent individuals from regaining previously lost weight. 

The nutrients in this type of injections come in numerous combinations but some of the more frequent ones include – vitamin B12; and choline, methionine, and inositol (MIC). More advanced lipotropic injections can also include adenosine monophosphate (AMP), L-Carnitine and L-Arginine.

Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is related in varying ways to cell metabolism and its resultant energy production. Vitamin B12 is particularly potent as a weight management and energy enhancing agent.  In addition, B12 aids in sleep, helps lower stress levels, improves hair, skin and nails and boosts immune function.  Some of the benefits of vitamin B12 are listed below.

- Improves Energy Levels                       - Improves Hair, Skin and Nails                    - Improves Mood and Fights Depression

- Increases Metabolism                           - Stimulates Weight Loss                                 - Lowers Cholesterol

- Decreases Stress                                      - Improves Sleep Patterns                              - Increases Immune Function

- Improves Athletic Endurance           - Improves Allergies and Asthma               - Prevents Breast, Colon  and Other Cancers
- Protects Against Heart Disease       - Regulates the Nervous System                - Maintains a Healthy Digestive System
- Improves Male Fertility                         - Effective Analgesic                                          - Prevents Prion Diseases

- Improves Balance                                      - Prevents Brain Shrinkage and Memory Loss

Methionine, Inositol and Choline (MIC)
Some of the benefits of MIC injections include:

- Improved Liver Function and Detoxification                                        - Reduces Likelihood of Diabetes
- Increases Memory Function and Decreases Memory Loss          - Increases Fat Metabolism
- Improves Energy Levels                                                                                     - Enhances Mood

Adenosine Monophosphate (AMP)
Though primarily an energy source, certain aspects of one’s pain management and negation mechanism is also attributable to adequate levels of the hugely essential adenosine monophosphate (AMP). Thus, in the absence of so integral an acid, weight control and pain suppression are both prone to being compromised.  AMP also aids in extracting energy production.  Some of the benefits of Adenosine monophosphate (AMP) are listed below.

- Maximizes Energy Production                                                                       - Decreases Appetite

- Increases Stamina and Endurance                                                               - Elimination of Adipose Tissue (Excess Fat Cells)

- Accelerates Metabolism                                                                                    - Aids Weight Loss and Fights Obesity
- Treats and Prevents Certain Disorders                                                    - Pain Relief

L-carnitine is an amino acid that promotes fat metabolism. L-carnitine injections are a particularly potent means by which to enhance the body’s fat elimination capacity. Some of the benefits of L-Carnitine injections are:

- Increases Lean Muscle Growth                                                                     - Increases Energy
- Increases Metabolism                                                                                         - Weight Loss
- Helps Balance and Improve Testosterone Levels                              - Improves Cardiovascular Vitality
- Supports Brain Health and Cognitive Ability 

L-arginine is an essential amino acid that is vital for protein production within the body. It aids the body in eliminating ammonia and helps create composites like creatine, L-glutamate, L-proline and glucose. Arginine is a forerunner to nitric oxide, which is a biological gas needed for intracellular transmission as well as blood vessel slackening. Insufficiency of Arginine can instigate indications such as hair loss, skin hives, constipation, reduced wound healing and fatty liver.  Arginine is required for a wide variety of functions in the body. These include – quick wound healing, assisting the kidneys in waste removal and maintaining Immune and Hormonal Functions. Some of the known benefits of L-Arginine include:

- Decreases Body Fat                                                                                             - Lean Tissue Growth
- Enhances Lipolysis / Fat Breakdown                                                          - Treats Coronary Heart Ailments

- Decreases Migraines                                                                                            - Prevents Coagulation in Arteries
- Lessons the Gravity of Diabetes                                                                    - Prevents Erectile Dysfunction
- Enhances Sexual Endurance                                                                             - Accelerates the Creation of Growth Hormones
- Improves Skins Flexibility                                                                                   - Aids Wound Healing
- Improves Immune Function
