Lipotropic Injections

What Are Lipotropic (Fat Burning) Injections?

Fat burning injections contain lipotropic nutrients, a vitamin and amino acid blend, which play an important role in the body’s metabolism and clearance of fat. Not only do they assist the body with fat metabolism, they provide a great energy boost to assist you in your weight loss goals!  Additionally, these injections are highly successful in increasing energy in patients on a low calorie diet.

Vitalean injections also provide other important health benefits.  Lipotropic nutrients are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. They aid in transporting fat in the blood stream, which can lower bad cholesterol and remove fats in the liver.  Various types of liver damage, including alcohol-related hepatitis, appear to improve after use of liver-soothing lipotropic combinations, like Vitalean injections.

Key Amino Acids for Excessive Deposition of Fat:

Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which supports the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.

Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine and cystine are others) and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release.

Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely related to choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

L-Carnitine is a powerful amino acid that has a direct increase in the process of fat metabolism in the body, and can directly increase your fat burning potential.  It is also the building block of healthy heart tissue.

Methylcobalamin (B12) Vitamin B12 is a very important nutrient in the human body. Many metabolic processes require it to run properly. B12 is added to the Vitalean shots primarily for increasing energy and metabolism.
