Skinny Shots

Skinny shots, also known as MIC or Lipotropic injections (Methionine Inositol Choline). (MIC) injections are shots specifically designed to help speed up your metabolism. Think about it, have you ever wondered why one person can eat a ton of sweets and stay skinny as a rail, while another person that eats the same amount blows up like a balloon? The answer lies in a fascinating mechanism that is constantly at work in our bodies: our metabolism.

What are Skinny Shots?

Lipotropics are fat-burning amino acids, substances that are naturally produced by the body. These chemicals help to remove toxins and waste from the liver, prevent cholesterol build-up and metabolize fats.

The following ingredients are what make the Skinny Shot work:

Methionine: A protein-based amino acid that is essential for muscle growth and energy. It also helps preserve artery function, maintain healthy nails, hair, and skin, break down fat, and remove heavy metals from the body. 

Inositol: Used medicinally to help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the body. Inositol may also be used to improve circulation, prevent hair loss, nourish the brain, and facilitate the conversion of nutrients to energy.

Choline: Important for liver function, along with helping to remove toxins, and prevent fat from accumulating in the liver. With proper amounts of this nutrient in the diet each day, the chances of developing problems with the liver are reduced.

Pyridoxine Hydrochloride: (Vitamin B6) Essential in numerous biochemical pathways involving red blood cells, the immune system, central nervous system function, protein metabolism, homocysteine metabolism, and also the production of energy. It is necessary for proper absorption of Vitamin B12.

Methylcobalamin: (Vitamin B12) Essential for forming new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.

L-Carnitine: The primary function of L-Carnitine is to convert lipids, or fats, into fuel for energy. Specifically, its role is to move fatty acids into the cells that reside within the protective membranes that surround cells, essential to provide energy for every cell in the body.

Furthermore, MIC injections contain vitamins and other nutrients that promote energy, such as vitamin B-12 and B-6. B-12 is found in a variety of protein-rich, energy-boosting foods, such as fish, meat, eggs, and dairy products. B-6 may help with mood elevation.
MIC injections can be administered up to twice a week. When taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and a regular exercise program, patients may see up to a 5-10lb weight loss.

Benefits of Skinny Shots

There are many benefits that come from taking regular MIC Injections.
MIC injections may help anyone who’s hit a wall in their weight loss efforts. While skinny shots are not a replacement for a good diet and regular exercise, they may rev up your body’s metabolism to operate at peak efficiency, which will help assist you to lose weight more quickly.

Since they are entirely composed of natural elements, such as vitamins and amino acids, skinny shots can be taken on a perpetual basis, up to twice a week.

Apart from the little prick when they are administered, MIC injections are pain-free. They can help you to avoid the frustration of trying out faddy diets that may not work for you. Moreover, they can easily fit into your weekly schedule.

Besides weight loss, MIC injections may also give you more energy, and help increase your body’s overall well-being.

What other weight loss support treatments are available?

Mesotherapy is another option and works by administering injections of plant extracts, enzymes, vitamins, and hormones into the middle layers of your skin. These injections can improve poor circulation and inflammation, both of which can impede your weight loss efforts. Mesotherapy can also improve the appearance of cellulite. 

Medical weight loss is a safe and effective method of losing excess weight. At its core, weight loss requires a combination of a healthy diet and regular exercise. However, numerous factors can make it difficult for people to achieve this goal, including the following:

  • Too little time
  • Lack of energy
  • Emotional problems
  • Lifestyle pressures
  • Lack of knowledge
  • Health issues

These factors can all make losing weight a considerable challenge. If you’ve had problems sticking with a diet, medical weight loss could be the answer.
