Weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight throughout the course of your lifetime is something with which nearly half of all Americans struggle from time to time. If you’ve been on a weight-loss journey and you’re trying to reach your personal goal, having a customized nutrition and exercise plan, plus medical and emotional support can help you achieve your goals. The integrated medical and chiropractic team here at Genesis Integrative Medicine in Geneva, Illinois, understand the many challenges of losing weight and keeping it off.
As part of a complete weight-loss program, lipo-mino injections can help you finish off your journey to slimmer, healthier size. After reading this, you should have a better understanding of how you might benefit from lipo-mino injections.
Lipo-mino (lipotropic) injections affect your metabolism
Lipotropics are substances that affect the way your body metabolizes the fat you consume and the fat you already have. When your medical provider injects a combination of lipotropic ingredients, it can help break down fat in your liver. Customized lipo-mino injections can help you reach your weight-loss goals by speeding up your metabolism and eliminating fat.
Your medical weight-loss team at Genesis Integrative Medicine create a lipo-mino injection based on your individual needs and goals. Typically, these injections include some combination of the following ingredients:
- Vitamin B12 for energy and to prevent anemia
- Inositol, a natural sugar related to B vitamins that helps metabolize fat and improve insulin function
- Choline, also related to B vitamins, helps metabolize lipids (fats)
- Methionine, an amino acid that plays an essential role in metabolizing energy
When you receive these nutrients via injection, they work together to help your body burn fat faster and more effectively. It’s often that extra boost you need at the end of your weight-loss journey to help you reach your ultimate goal.
Lipo-mino injections are a complement to your nutritional and exercise efforts
It would be wonderful if you could eat whatever you wanted and lose weight, but then you probably wouldn’t be as healthy as you are when you make better food choices and move more. Think of lipo-mino injections as another component of your nutritional and exercise efforts. Together, you may see results faster than you thought possible.
And once you reach your goal weight, you’ll already be on the right track to maintain your optimal health and wellness.
Weekly injections for a month or so might be ideal for you as you near your weight-loss goals, but your provider at Genesis Integrative Medicine tailors a plan to fit your needs. They may also recommend other nutrients as part of your lipo-mino injections, such as vitamin B6 or amino acids, to help compensate for any nutritional deficiencies you may have, short term.
Ultimately, you want to embark on a weight-loss program that helps you steadily lose weight, improve your nutritional choices, and make behavioral modifications, such as managing stress and getting enough sleep. When you choose a healthier lifestyle overall, you undoubtedly foster a life-long weight-loss plan that helps you feel better both physically and emotionally, so you can maintain it long-term. Cutting back on sugar and processed foods, drinking more water, and taking a daily walk are just a few ways you can keep the momentum going during and after your weight-loss program.
Whether you’re nearing the end of your weight-loss journey, or you’re just beginning, the medical team at Genesis Integrative Medicine can customize a plan that includes the benefits of lipo-mino injections.
