You’ve tried countless restrictive diet plans, strenuous exercise programs, and diet pill bottles filled with empty promises of rapid weight loss. But if your goal is to improve your health — and it should be — it’s best (and most effective) to work with your body’s natural ability to manage your weight.
At Balanced Medical Solutions, our team of medical experts believes in addressing your health issues holistically. That’s why we include natural therapies like B-12 injections in our comprehensive medical weight-loss program in order to help you lose stubborn weight and jump-start your metabolism.
What are B-12 injections?
You depend on vitamin B-12 to produce red blood cells and DNA, so if you’re running low, it’s a big deal, but you’re not alone. One study found that about 40% of all Americans are B-12 deficient. And if you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, you might be one of them, because you get most of your vitamin B-12 from animal-based foods. That’s where injections come in.
Different varieties of B-12 injections offer a wide range of health benefits. We use B-12 lipotropic injections, which not only improve your overall health and wellness with their essential nutrients, they may also complement your weight-loss efforts. Your B-12 injections may include:
- Vitamin B-12
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B complex
- Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)
We typically administer these injections into the areas on your body with the most fat, like your thigh, abdomen, or buttocks. You may receive these injections as a part of your weight-loss program, not as a stand-alone treatment.
Depending on your specific health history and goals, you may receive injections weekly or twice weekly. Our experts are specially trained and know the exact dosage and frequency you need to achieve the best results. Here’s the science behind it all.
B12 injections and your metabolism
In lay terms, your metabolism is the process that turns the food you eat into the energy it needs. To stay active, you rely on this system to run smoothly and efficiently, but a number of health and lifestyle factors can make your metabolism grind to a halt. When that happens, you experience frustrating side effects like weight gain or the inability to lose weight.
There are plenty of home remedies and lifestyle modifications you can try to speed up your metabolism, or you could turn to B-12 injections.
The ingredients in B-12 injections boost metabolism by providing your body and its cells with the energy they need to function properly. With your metabolism firing on all cylinders, you’ll notice a surplus of natural energy.
B-12 injections and weight loss
B-12 injections won’t magically cause your body to shed pounds, but if your weight loss has stalled because of a sluggish metabolism, these shots just might be the missing piece to your dieting puzzle.
When your metabolism runs as it should, it uses the food you eat as energy, but if your metabolism malfunctions, it stores your food as fat instead. B12 injections reignite your metabolism so it burns your fat storages and uses food as energy, preventing further weight gain.
Remember, B-12 injections are only one component of an overall weight-loss plan. We can help you lose even more weight with HI-EMT body sculpting, peptides, hormonal rebalancing therapies, and other medical weight loss treatments. Come see how our B-12 injections and medical weight-loss program can get the scale moving in the right direction again.
