Quick question......Has anyone ever gotten the Lipotropic Shots? Currently I get the b12 shots from Right Weight Doctor in Greenbelt MD. Now they are offering these shots and I am interested.
After researching the safety and effectiveness of the shots, I am somewhat interested! Apparently the shots are a mix of B vitamins and sulfur injections. From yahoo search:
"Lipotropic injections are a concoction of essential amino acids choline, methionine, and inositol combined with vitamins B6 and B12. This combination of amino acids and vitamins has so many benefits for the body. Choline, an essential nutrient, actively reduces fat in the liver, decreasing chances of heart disease. Methionine, an amino acid responsible for lowering cholesterol and fat reduction in the body, is not produced in our bodies. Inositol is responsible for metabolizing fats and helping transfer those fats to the bloodstream. Inositol also regulates serotonin and insulin in our bodies. This increases mood and decreases hunger. Vitamins B6 and B12 are added to elevate mood, to assist in lipid metabolism, and to increase energy." More info
Apparently their is a minimal chance of adverse effects; people with sulfur allergies shouldnt get them. My only concern is that some people have experienced "exhaustion" because their metabolism is through the roof, and their body isn't used to operating at that level....My other concern is that I will lose fat in areas that I don't want to lose it....(ie A$$,Breasts; im already dealing with this due to my exercise and diet regimen )
So ladies, what are your experiences with the lipotropic shots???? TIA!
