Lipotropic Injections Q & A

Why is vitamin B12 important?

Lipotropic Injections

Vitamin B12 is found in animal-based foods including dairy products, meat, poultry, and fish. Vegetarians get B12 from fortified foods like cereals, non-dairy milk, and yeast products. Vitamin B12 plays a vital role in many of the body’s functions:
Vitamin B12 is important for healthy:

  • Brain function
  • DNA synthesis
  • Energy levels
  • Endurance levels
  • Nerve tissue
  • Red blood cell formation

What are signs of vitamin B12 deficiency?

Vitamin B12 deficiency impairs many body’s functions, sometimes even permanently. Because the body can’t store B12, it’s important to supplement the vitamin on a regular basis.

Ideal B12 levels depend on many different factors including your age, diet, medications, and overall health. Vegans, vegetarians, and pregnant women should be especially concerned about vitamin B12 deficiency.

Signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency include:

  • Fatigue
  • Heart palpitations
  • Pale skin
  • Constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Mental fog
  • Nerve problems

Dr. McIlveen, Alyssa Jastrzebski, and Shannon Hall monitor your B12 levels as part of your primary care. They may also recommend B12 lipotropic injections in conjunction with your weight loss regimen to increase energy and boost metabolism.

Do B12 injections help weight loss?

Lipo-Plex lipotropic B12 injections contain a mixture of essential vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids to increase energy and boost your metabolism. Along with B12, Lipo-Plex injections have lipotropic “fat-loving” ingredients that help the liver metabolize fats and remove them from the bloodstream. Lipotropic nutrients also help to balance hormones including estrogen, and manage glucose.

The B12 in Lipo-Plex injections boosts energy, aids stress management, and increases the metabolism to burn fat more efficiently. Combined with a healthy, diet and regular exercise, B12 injections enhance weight loss, helping you lose pounds and inches.
