If your answer is yes. Contact Age Management Institute today.

If you have tried every diet and exercise routine and you still have not made any progress towards your weight loss goals, you might need to consider that your body is lacking important minerals and vitamins. The human body is a perfect machine that requires these essential substances to work perfectly in tune. When your hormonal balance is off, your body is producing and receiving mixed signals that sometimes can be the cause behind abnormal fat storage. When your body receives the right amount of vitamins and minerals your body is stimulated to encourage the removal of fat and uses it as fuel instead of storing it in all the wrong places.

Extreme diets and performing under starvation is absolutely not the answer to achieving weight loss. You might want to give Lipotropic injections a chance.


What are Lipotropic Injections?

Nutrition is one of the most important factors in overall health. At AMI we take an individualized approach to customize programs for each client based on lifestyle, habits, health goals and conditions. Our nutrition programs are designed to be effective and reasonable for any lifestyle.


Lipotropic injections include a solution of nutrients that accelerate the burning of fat in the body. Some of these nutrients include vitamin B12, amino-acids, inositol, methionine and choline, among others. These substances play an intricate part in the consumption of energy and the disposal of toxins and fat from the bod.

Most medical practices that recommend the use of these shots also recommend that the patient incorporates a daily fitness plan and also the implementation of a diet with caloric intake restrictions.

The etymology of the word “lipotropic” comes from the Greek word lipos – meaning “fat”. For this reason, sometimes patients relate the shots to the plastic surgery procedure known as liposuction. However, both terms are completely unrelated. Liposuction is a procedure that requires weeks of recovery and ultimately, fails to deliver real fat loss. Most patients generally gain everything back because unlike lipotropin injections, the body is not being trained in a natural way to get rid of the fat.

The lack of the proper nutrients provided by lipotropic injections are the cause behind the build up of bile and fat in the liver. This problem can also be the root behind serious diseases like cirrhosis and liver failure. Additionally, it is the starting point behind metabolic issues by preventing the body from the ability to discard fat.

One of the advantages of using the Lipotropic injections comes from the fact that the solution enters the body without the possibility of being diluted or becoming ineffectively absorbed by the digestive system. Studies have shown that the average weight loss is between 2 to 4 pounds per week. Of course, the results are different according to individual circumstances. Patients with a high level of motivation and discipline about their weight loss journey are reported to lose up to five pounds per week.
