Making Bodies Better

What are Lipotropic Injections?

Lipotropic compounds are those which help catalyze the break down of fat during metabolism in the body. Methionine, Choline, Inositol and Betaine are examples of lipotropics. The primary function of lipotropics in the body is to prevent the build up of excess fat in the liver. Lipotropics increase the liver's production of lecithin. Lecithin breaks up cholesterol and moves it through the bloodstream without clogging the arteries. Methionine and Choline are also responsible for detoxifying the metabolic waste generated by the breakdown of proteins in the body.

Although there is no research that supports that lipotropics can increase weight loss these supplements are often used to boost metabolism and aid in weight loss programs. The amino acids that are considered lipotropic are also important for other reactions in the body and therefore can still be a healthy supplement regardless of weight loss. Administering these lipotropics through injections like B12 injections and HCG Injections, rather than oral forms have some definitive benefits.

Better Absorption/Bioavailability
Oral supplements must first be broken down in the digestive tract and absorbed by the body before the active ingredients can begin to exert their effects.  In addition, low quality nutrients and cheap fillers can decrease the bioavailability of supplements, greatly reducing intestinal absorption, resulting in unpredictable levels of the active ingredients reaching the bloodstream.

Injections, however, provide direct delivery of nutrients into the body’s tissues, ensuring 100% absorption of the active ingredients.    When administering Trim nutrient injections, you can be assured that your patients are receiving the exact dosage of the nutrients you have prescribed which are immediately available for utilization by the body.

Rapid Onset of Action
Oral supplements must first undergo digestion, absorption and metabolism before any nutrients are released into the bloodstream.  This process can take several hours before the active ingredients start to become available to target tissues.

Unlike the oral route, administration of nutrients using injections is the most rapid method of dietary supplementation.  Following the injection of vitamin supplements, the body can start to utilize the active ingredients immediately in order to correct dietary deficiencies.

Less Frequent Dosing
Because of low bioavailability and extensive metabolism, oral supplements must be dosed frequently to be effective.  Depending on the brand, some supplements require the patient to take several pills per day.

Nutritional injections, on the other hand, are completely absorbed and avoid extensive metabolism, providing higher concentrations of nutrients available to target tissues.  In addition, injections create a depot effect in which the active ingredients are released progressively over time in a steady-state manner.  Therefore, Injections require less frequent dosing than oral supplements.

The Best Value
In summary, unlike oral dietary supplements, nutritional injections contain the highest quality ingredients at the correct potencies without fillers or contaminants.  Following administration, the active ingredients are completely absorbed by the body and do not undergo extensive metabolism in the gastrointestinal system.  The nutrients are immediately available for utilization to correct nutritional deficiencies.  Because of the depot effect and the fact that more of the nutrients reach target tissues, nutrient Injections require less frequent dosing than oral supplements.  For these reasons, injections offer the best value.
