Have you been struggling to lose weight, but nothing has worked? Have you been dieting and working out regularly for a while, but you haven’t seen effective results? While these things may work for other people, they aren’t your only options. Dr. Michael Skardasis at Optimal Performance Medicine in Woodstock, Georgia, can talk to you about lipotropic injections. They contain a vitamin B12 supplement that can help you burn fat and lose weight.
How do lipotropic injections work?
Optimal Performance Medicine uses B12 shots, which contain a variety of nutrients, including:
- Choline, which helps your liver clear out waste
- Inositol, which helps break down fat
- Methionine, which reduces fat accumulation while providing an energy boost
- B Complex, which helps boost your energy
- Vitamin B6, which help the bladder process fluid
Combined together, these nutrients help your body get rid of excess water while processing fat and waste, all of which can help you lose weight. Additionally, by enhancing your liver and gallbladder functions, you may also notice a reduced appetite as your body increases its fat-burning process and speeds up your metabolism. With increased energy, you will be able to complete longer and possibly more intense workouts, which will help push you closer to your weight loss goal.
Because it can be difficult to get vitamin B12 from your diet, the lipotropic injection can help make up the difference. Still, it’s important to maintain a balanced diet with plenty of exercise in order to reach your goal weight. The injection is like a helper, but it isn’t meant to be a substitute for maintaining overall health. Dr. Skardasis can answer any questions you may have about healthy diets and effective exercise regimens to complement the effect of the injections.
Are the injections safe?
Vitamin B12 is safe in large quantities. However, it’s recommended that you use them with an active weight loss plan or program. The success rate of the injections is high, but results can still vary. You should discuss your medical history, along with your family’s medical history, with Dr. Skardasis in order to determine if lipotropic injections are right for you.
