Lipotropic Shots Q&A

What are lipotropic shots?

Lipotropic is a scientific term for fat burning. Lipotropic substances help your body breakdown fat more quickly, which decreases overall fat accumulation. Lipotropic injections, also known as Lipo-B, Lipo-C, or B-12 shots, contain a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that boost your metabolism.

A lipotropic shot may contain the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin B-6
  • B vitamin complex
  • L-carnitine, an amino acid
  • Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)
  • A combination of amino acids methionine, inositol, and choline (MIC)

The highly trained team at Balanced Medical Solutions determines the best type of lipotropic injection for you.

How do lipotropic shots assist with weight loss?

One of the most common ingredients in a lipotropic shot is vitamin B-12, an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in forming red blood cells, keeping nerve cells healthy, and producing energy. People who don’t get enough B-12 from their diet may have a hard time with weight loss.

Many patients who come to Balanced Medical Solutions for B-12 lipotropic therapy go on to lose weight after their injection. If you previously had a B-12 deficiency, lipotropic shots may increase your energy and give you the boost you need to stick to an exercise plan.

Are lipotropic shots right for me?

If you tried eating well and exercising but haven’t seen the weight loss you desire, lipotropic shots may be the answer. They’re especially helpful for older adults with a vitamin B-12 deficiency. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for lipotropic shots is to talk to the experts at Balanced Medical Solutions.

What should I expect from a lipotropic shot?

Your initial evaluation at Balanced Medical Solutions includes bloodwork and a medical exam to determine whether lipotropic shots are right for you. The initial evaluation costs only $69, which includes the initial bloodwork and medical exam. 

The team at Balanced Medical Solutions develops a personalized weight loss plan that may include lipotropic injections once or twice per week for several weeks. They administer the shot in an area of fatty tissue, such as your upper arm or thigh, or patients can elect to administer the injections at home on their own. 

Long-term weight loss doesn’t result from any single method or diet, including lipotropic shots. The team at Balanced Medical Solutions works with you to create a holistic plan that incorporates healthy eating and regular physical activity.
