Vitamin B12 Injections
What Is It?
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, also known as cobalami. Cobalami plays a vital role in brain function and the production of DNA and red blood cells.Chemically, vitamin B12 can exist in a number of different forms, but all of them contain the mineral cobalt.
The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms per day. Deficiency is common, especially in people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. This is because B12 is only found naturally in animal foods. However, vegans and vegetarians are not the only ones who are
deficient. Even some meat eaters don’t absorb it very well (4, 5). Unlike other vitamins, the absorption of vitamin B12 depends on a protein produced in your stomach, called intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor binds to vitamin B12, so that you can absorb it into the blood. People who don’t
produce enough intrinsic factor can become deficient.
Vitamin B12 Shots Are Very Effective
An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to neurological problems or pernicious anemia, which occurs when your body doesn’t have enough B12 to produce the amount of red blood cells it needs (16). Vitamin B12 shots are the most common way to prevent or treat a deficiency and give you that boost of energy.
What Is It
All of the compounds in the MIC (Lipotropic)shots are naturally occurring in the body. L- Methionine is one of eight essential amino acids that are the building blocks for proteins but which cannot be produced in the body. Aside from injection or ingestion as a supplement, L-Methionine can be found in meats and diary products, as well as spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts and sesame seeds. L-Methionine is useful in the treatment of liver disease and is a recommended supplement for vegetarians.
For weight management, L- Methionine helps the body process and eliminate fat. It is a required amino acid in the production of cysteine and taurine, which help the body eliminate toxins. Inositol is a carbohydrate, but is not considered a sugar, and was once considered a member of the vitamin B complex, however, since the body is able to synthesize it, it is not a classic vitamin. It is also found predominantly in fruits such as cantaloupe and oranges, as well as bananas, kidney beans, raisins, and peanuts.
In the management of weight, inositol, when used in combination with other B complex vitamins, helps the liver break down fats in the body, and when used in combination with other compounds in a MIC injection, especially choline, inositol forms lecithin which is known to aid in the metabolism of fat. Choline is considered an essential nutrient that, while produced in the liver, is generally not produced in sufficient quantities. Like inostiol, it is often grouped within the B complex of vitamins, although it is not a true B vitamin. Choline is required in the regulation of the kidneys, liver and gallbladder.
As part of a weight loss program, choline is essential for fat metabolism, it functions as a methyl donor and it assists detoxification reactions in the liver. Soybeans along with eggs are two of our best choline-based food sources, as well as beef liver, cauliflower, tofu and almonds. The components of a MIC injection, especially inositol and choline, have been found to improve mental function, improve feelings of depression, and as part of a successful physician supervised VLCD weight loss program, MIC injections are typically given weekly for the duration of the program.
