FAT BURNING INJECTIONS

  • MIC– MIC is an acronym for the compounds: L-Methionine, Inositol and Choline. These are lipotropic agents which help with the breakdown of fat during metabolism in the body.
  • L- Methionine is one of eight essential amino acids that are the building blocks for proteins but which cannot be produced in the body. Aside from injection or ingestion as a supplement, L-Methionine can be found in meats and dairy products, as well as spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts and sesame seeds. L-Methionine is useful in the treatment of liver disease and is a recommended supplement for vegetarians.
    For weight management, L- Methionine helps the body process and eliminate fat. It is a required amino acid in the production of cysteine and taurine, which help the body eliminate toxins.
  • Inositol is a carbohydrate, but is not considered a sugar, and was once considered a member of the vitamin B complex, however, since the body is able to synthesize it, it is not a classic vitamin. It is also found predominantly in fruits such as cantaloupe and oranges, as well as bananas, kidney beans, raisins, and peanuts.
    In the management of weight, inositol, when used in combination with other B complex vitamins, helps the liver break down fats in the body, and when used in combination with other compounds in a MIC injection, especially choline, inositol forms lecithin which is known to aid in the metabolism of fat.
  • Choline is considered an essential nutrient that, while produced in the liver, is generally not produced in sufficient quantities. Like inositol, it is often grouped within the B complex of vitamins, although it is not a true B vitamin. Choline is required in the regulation of the kidneys, liver and gallbladder.
    As part of a weight loss program, choline is essential for fat metabolism, it functions as a methyl donor and it assists detoxification reactions in the liver.
    Soybeans along with eggs are two of our best choline-based food sources, as well as beef liver, cauliflower, tofu and almonds.
    Interestingly, the components of a MIC injection, especially inositol and choline, have been found to improve mental function, improve feelings of depression
  • Vitamin B-12 – (Methylcobalamin) injections are weekly energy booster shots. It also promotes formation of blood/memory/concentration/immunity, boosting mood, slows down the aging process.
  • Vitamin B-6 – (Peridoxine) supports a wide variety of functions in your body  and is essential for your health. It assists weight loss through a stimulating effect on the thyroid as well as alleviates cravings. 
  • Vitamin B-1 – (Thiamine) plays a key role in energy metabolism. Adequate levels are needed by the body to keep metabolism from slowing down during weight loss. 
  • L-Carnitine allows the body to burn more fat, save glycogen, boost stamina and endurance.
