LIPO-Vite Injections: To assist in weight loss.
What is LIPO-Vite, and how does it help in weight loss?
Lipo-Vite is a combination of vitamins and lipotropic agents which help the body lose weight. These consist of once or twice a week, single intramuscular injections, to help the body increase its metabolism of fat and to facilitate weight loss. The benefits are increased energy, some mild appetite suppression, and better overall metabolism of carbohydrates into fat and energy. These injections have proven useful for the body's ability to burn off those stubborn pounds gained during the peri-menopause/menopausal transition.

B-1: Improves immune system, helps convert fat and carbohydrates not energy, especially in the brain.
B-2: Increases metabolism, supports immune system. Induces action of B-6, fat metabolism and glucose regulation.
B-3: Improves carbohydrate metabolism and cholesterol synthesis. Needed for synthesis of both fatty acids and steroids.
B-5: Improves energy.
B-6: Promotoes red blood cell production, nerve activity, and connects food to energy. Promotes release of glycogen from liver and muscle. Loss of water weight.
B-12: Energy, healthy nerve cells, healthy red blood cell activity and carbohydrate metabolism.
Vitamin C: Anti-Oxidant. Immune booster.
Lipotropics (of Inositol, Choline, Methionine): A class of substances that play an important role in the body's use of fat. These help to maintain a healthy liver through their involvement in lipid (fat) metabolism by increasing the production of lecithin by the liver. This helps to solubilize cholesterol, thus lessening cholesterol deposits in blood vessels and decreasing the chance of gallstone formations.
Inositol: Converts food to energy. A deficiency of inositol can lead to hair loss. Regular and frequent consumption of caffeine may cause depletion of inositol.
Choline: Healthy nerve cells, cuts muscle recovery time, helps convert fat to energy. Metabolizes fat. Choline detoxifies amines (by products of protein metabolism). This is important for those on a high protein diet.
Methionine: Helps break down sugars and carbohydrates for conversion into energy. Works with choline to detoxify amines. Works as a catalyst for choline and inositol, opening up their functions.
Although their is no "magic bullet" for weight loss, when someone has been incorporating the mainstays of a good nutritious and healthy diet, appropriate hormone restoration, yet sill experiencing difficulty in losing weight, then these injections may be useful for the body's ability to burn off those stubborn pounds gained during the peri-menopause and menopause transition where women will often put on 5, 10, even 15 pounds right around the mid-section. This area of weight gain has proven to be the most difficult to take off no matter how hard someone diet's and exercises. Calories do not regulate metabolism. Our hormones regulate metabolism. This is why so many diets based or calories fail. Hormone restoration is instrumental in managing weight, yet weight gain can still be frustrating and troublesome. Lipo-Vite injections are a fine adjunct to any weight loss regimen.
It's recommended to get at least three weeks worth of injections for starters, and monitor how the body responds. The cost is $75- per injection.
