B12 & Lipotropic injections
In today’s world we often find ourselves depleted of all nautral energy. We are constantly running to appointments, our children’s extracirriculars, and working longer days, and taking that work home for even longer nights. But there may be something that is causing you to be extra sluggish – a lack of B12!
Some things you may notice if you have a B12 deficiency are:
- Low, depressed mood
- Weight issues (troubles gaining or losing)
- Irritability or moodiness
- Sleep disorders
- …and many more

What's in it?
Methionine or L-Methionine:
This is responsible for a number of important body functions and plays a critical role in your body’s metabolism. It is also a powerful antioxidant and as such helps fight free radicals in the body as well as slow the aging process. Methionine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is responsible for the production of collagen, which is known to help enhanse the condition of skin, hair, and nails.
L-Methionine may also help boost your immune system, as high methionine levels in the body can also increase the levels of other amnio acids such as glutathione, homocysteine, and taurine, which all play important roles in immune function. In addition, selenium and zinc cannot be absorbed by the body without the aid of L-Methionine. Since L-Methionine acts as a chelator, it is also used in helping treat acetaminophen and copper poisioning. This is because your body makes cysteine from methionine, which is in turn converted into glutathione, the main detoxification agent in the body.
Inositol is a vitamin-like substance, and sometimes referred to as “vitamin B8”. It is found in many plants and animals. It is also produced in the human body and can be made in a laboratory. Inositol can be found in many forms (called isomers). The most common forms are myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol.
Inositol is commonly used orally for treating a discorder called metabolic syndrome and conditions associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), including failure to ovulate, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, and high levels of testosterone. It is also used in some settings for depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety disorders and beneficilly address these mental health concerns and/or to reduce these symptoms. The main use of inositol is for the storage and metabolism of amino acids. It is also an important part of the citric acid cycle, or the main series of chemical reactions that leads to food being turned into energy within the body. Lastly, inositol benefits the immune system and the production of hair and nails.
Choline is an organic, water-soluble compound that’s often grouped with vitamin B complex, since it has similar functions and properties. It affects many important processes in your body, including the structure of your cells, cell messaging, fat transport and metabolism, DNA synthesis, and nervous system functions, including muscle control, circadian rhythm and memory. However, around 90 percent of the US population is not consuming enough choline because popular dietary guidelines limit the consumption of its dietary sources.
Pyridoxine, or B6, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential in different body processes. First, it is essential in helping the body transform food into glucose to be used as energy. B-complex vitamins and B6 are crucial for proper brain and nervous system function, as well as for metabolizing fat and protein. They also help maintain the health of your skin, eyes, hair, and liver.
Levocarnitine is an amino acid and also a valuable wieght loss weapon, as it transports fatty acids from the blood into the mitochondira so that they can be effectively used as energy. L-Carnitine not only helps the body burn fuel as efficiently and effectively as possbile, but it also improves endurance by inhibiting the build-up of lactic acid, which is one of the primary causes of fatigue. Studies show that patients who use L-Carnitine for weight loss typically see a reduction in body fat, an increase in muscle mass, an improvement in stamina and strength, and decreased fatigue.
Dexpanthenol (Pantothenic Acid):
Also known as “Vitamin B5” and plays an important role within the body such as converting nutrients from food into energy, balancing blood sugar, reducing bad cholestrol, lowering high blood pressure, preventing nerve damage and pain, and preventing heart failure. Similar to other B vitamins, B5 plays a role in energy metabolism, acting as a coenzyme to energy producing chemical reactions. It plays a role in the synthesis of fat, hormones, and carbohydrates that we take in from the foods we eat, by turning them into usable energy that the body uses in many ways.
Lysine is an essential amino acid because your body cannot make it, so you need to obtain it from food. It’s important for normal growth and muscle turnover and used to form carnitine, a substance found in most cells of your body. What’s more, it helps transport fats across your cells to be burned for energy. It may protect and treat cold sores by blocking arginine. It may reduce anxiety by blocking stress response receptors, improve calcium absorbtion and retention, and promote wound healing by producing collagen. Lysine, like all amnio acids, is used as a bulding block for protein in your body. These proteins help produce horomones, immune cells, and enzymes.
