Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to 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. Since lipotropics directly aid in the breakdown of fatty tissue, and are also closely related to B vitamins, when used together, they are thought to intensify each others’ effects and are usually injected together as part of the same treatment injection cycle. How do Lipotropic Injections work?
The amino acids that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. These injections boost the body’s metabolic power by providing a highly effective temporary increase of normal metabolic functions. As soon as the effect of these substances wears off, the body begins to gradually return to its normal metabolic rate.
When administered in combination with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, our lipotropic formulas can help your body to rid itself of fat, while simultaneously increasing your energy levels both via the fat released energy and the energy promoting properties of vitamin B-12. The formula used in the MIC Injection specially blends the following
Methionine – The “M” in MIC Injection, is an essential amino acid, which means that it is not synthesized in humans. This amino acid acts as a lipotropic agent which: assists in the breakdown of fats within the liver; helps to lower cholesterol thereby preventing excess fat buildup in the liver and throughout your body’s circulatory system; is helpful in preventing and relieving fatigue; and is useful in some cases of allergies by virtue of its ability to reduce histamine release.
One of the sulfur-containing amino acids (along with cysteine and cystine), methionine is important (essential) to many bodily functions and must be directly consumed through supplementation or methionine-containing proteins.
Foods which contain high levels of methionine include cheese, eggs, fish, meats, spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, and select other plant seeds. However, by injecting methionine into your muscles you can rapidly achieve high concentrations which many researchers and physicians believe results in more effective mobilization and elimination of abnormal fatty deposits.
Other reported benefits of methionine include improvement of: liver disease; skin tone and elasticity; nails; hair; and cardiovascular and muscular functions, through its role in the production of creatine. It has also been used to treat premature ejaculation, chronic depression, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s disease, and AIDS myelopathy. More specifically, clinical research has clearly demonstrated methionine’s ability to “…strongly improve the alcohol-induced histological changes in the liver. Triglyceride content of the liver was found to decrease in a dose-dependent manner with increasing methionine ingestion.
Inositol – The “I” in MIC Injection, is a B-vitamin that promotes: the health of cell structures and nerve synapses; aids in the metabolism of fats; helps reduce blood cholesterol; and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Also known as myo-inositol, inositol is best described as a carbocyclic polyol, which forms the basis for many signaling and secondary messenger molecules. As such, it is involved in many biological processes, including the breakdown of fats, the reduction of serum cholesterol, serotonin activity modulation, gene expression, and insulin signal transduction. It is not considered a vitamin because your body is unable to synthesize it. However, it has been shown to be helpful for the treatment of depression, panic disorder, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and fatty liver. It also important for optimal brain function.
Inositol deficiency may manifest as symptoms of constipation, high cholesterol, vision problems, and hair loss. Although it is naturally found in certain foods such as nuts, beans (especially red beans and kidney beans), grains, cantaloupe melons, and oranges, it is more effective in breaking down fat when given as an intramuscular injection.
Choline – The “C” in MIC Injection, is an essential nutrient that helps to support the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular, and hepatic systems.
Even though some physicians may sell MIC shots as fat burning drugs, these compounds do not break down fat in the body. These injections accelerate the metabolism of fat in the body. This means that they help the liver to process the fat that has already been broken down. They also mobilize fat throughout the body to the sites where they are required for use. In order to benefit from these injections, you should have a rapid weight loss program in place.
You can indulge in various training and exercises, you can work on your diet and cut down your calorie intake or seek advice from a medical supervisor. If you efficiently incorporate these injections to your daily routine, you will see outstanding results in no time.
The liver performs many functions in the body. Its major functions are detoxification and metabolism. When you begin using lipotropic injections, the amino acids stimulate the liver and encourage it to optimize the process of metabolism. This is to say that these injections boost your bodies energy by providing a temporary but highly effective increase in metabolic rates and processes in your body.
After some time, the effects of these substances wear off and the body regains its normal metabolic rates. If you administer these injections regularly together with regular exercises and a low-calorie intake in your diet, its formulas will help you to get rid of fat and increase your body’s energy using the ATP from the metabolized fat and the energy promoting characteristics of vitamin B-12.
Sure, simulated metabolism resulting in weight loss is great. But, for those who are tired, groggy, or need more energy, you are also going to benefit from the injections. In addition to seeing your weight go down, there are other benefits you can expect. Among these are:
Improved heart health Vitamins and minerals are going to help decrease bad cholesterol levels. Risk for heart disease will also decrease when you include diet and exercise to the regimen.
Enhance mood “Happy hormones” are released, meaning you are going to feel better/happier. Energy levels are stimulated, mental clarity is improved, you find it easier to remember things, and your nervous system will function more streamlined. All of these benefits will help in prevention of memory loss over time as well.
Liver Health One of the main benefits is that lipotropic will help take care of your liver. It keep it clean, helps in detox, and encourages proper flushing, for optimal liver health and functionality. Further, toxins and bile won’t build up, limiting your success with weight loss.
Hormone Balance If your hormones aren’t functioning properly, you can’t lose weight. So, this is a biggie in terms of balancing your system, and helping you realize the goals you set for losing weight.
Improved gut/appetite health Lipotropics can help aid as a appetite suppressant. Basically, you won’t feel hungry as often as you used to. This improves your metabolism, weight loss goes up, and improves internal functionality in your immune system.
Want to model? Longer and healthier nails, shinier hair, and improved visual appearance, all occur with Lipotropic injections. You can be whatever you want to be. But seriously, when you improve the overall health and your system, you will notice your body thanks you for such efforts.
Improved immune health Inositol is known to help reduce sickness frequency, and improve immune system health. Insomnia, depression, ADHD, and other ailments have been cured using this essential nutrient. These injections will help improve overall immune functionality, meaning you won’t get as sick, as often, as you used to.
Arthritis benefits With healthy growth, formation, and protection of cartilage and joints, you can avoid issues like arthritis as you get older. This is especially good news for those with a family history of it.
Increase reaction rates Superior absorption of nutrients ultimately helps you with improved reaction times. So, you will think faster, move faster, and naturally feel better over time when using the injections for weight loss.
Keep in mind the results are enhanced by those using Lipotropic injections, in conjunction with diet and exercise. It is not a miracle solution or cure, but rather, enhances overall functionality, and improves immune system health.
It is best to vary injection sites over time. This will help minimize pain, inflammation,and also possible injection marks at the site. With IM injections, you get a slow release, which means, ingredients are slowly released into the bloodstream over time. Oral products are available, but they are not nearly as effective as the IM shot.
