Skinny Shots FAQs
Weight gain happens through a combination of factors including nutrient deficiencies, lack of sleep, diet, hormone imbalances, and immune system imbalances. Knowing that gaining weight is more complex than simply eating too much food, it's easy to understand that losing weight may require more than just one therapy.
Skinny Shots might be one of the best shots you'll ever receive…and they can help you with so much more than just losing more weight and inches! The combination of lipotropic compounds and B vitamins is designed to jumpstart the body’s metabolism to specifically promote weight loss. Skinny Shots are injections made of unique combination of lipotropic compounds (methionine, inositol, choline, L-carnitine) and B Vitamins:
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
Levocarnitine (Amino acid)
Methionine (Essential amino acid)
Inositol (Vitamin B8)
Choline (Vitamin B4)
So…how do Skinny Shots fit into the weight loss equation?
Lipotropic compounds help speed up the breakdown of fat in the body in the following ways:
Boosting your energy levels You probably already know that Vitamin B12 is considered the energy vitamin. But what you may not know is that oral B12 supplements may not be properly absorbed into your body.
This is because absorption of B12 requires proper amounts of stomach acid and hormones to be functioning properly to be absorbed. Because of this many people are taking B12 but still remain deficient and no amount of oral B12 is enough to fix the problem because they don't absorb it. That's where B12 shots come in: B12 shots are ALWAYS absorbed because they bypass the GI tract and go directly into your subcutaneous tissues and muscles. This is why so many people notice an increase in energy while using B12 shots!
Breaking down fat stores (adipose tissue) and preventing fat storage for more weight loss
B12 helps increase energy levels and boost your metabolism which both indirectly lead to weight loss. The MIC portion (standing for methionine, inositol and choline) help to actually BURN more fat while exercising. For the best results, the combination of B12 and MIC can be be used as part of a complete treatment plan consisting of of a combination of exercise, stress reduction, and diet.
Converting fat stores for additional energy and fuel to directly impact your metabolism. B12 and Inositol are involved in the mitochondrial production of energy. (This may not sound important until you realize that your metabolism DEPENDS upon your mitochondria.) Your mitochondria produce most of the energy in your body. This energy is then released as heat through daily living such as breathing, eating, sleeping and moving. The more energy you burn at rest the higher your metabolism will be and the more calories you will burn. Vitamin B deficiencies are quite common and they can lead to a lower than normal metabolism resulting in weight gain over time. So that means that if you have low vitamin B12 (there's a high chance you do) taking B12 injections can boost your metabolism back to normal and help with weight loss.
- Improved Liver Detoxification This may not sound very interesting until you realize that your liver is required to get rid of pretty much everything you come into contact with on a daily basis such as medications, nutrients, and hormones. (And nowadays, that is quite a lot.) Certain nutrients like choline are required for optimal phase I and phase II elimination pathways in the liver. A reduction in the efficiency of these pathways means you will have a build up of endocrine disruptors and other chemicals that act on hormonal receptors in your body. Skinny Shots can help boost your detox and help you get rid of these endocrine disruptors.
- Better sleep Are you having difficulty with sleeping? You probably didn't realize but lack of sleep is well known, and proven, to cause weight gain and blood sugar issues. Vitamin B12 actually improves your circadian rhythm and helps the depth and quality of your sleep.
Better Mood Another huge benefit to using MIC + B12 shots is that they can improve your mood and concentration. Nowadays so many people suffer from the symptoms of depression or just feeling "down" that it's almost considered normal. It is NOT normal to feel depressed and it is NOT normal to feel down. These feelings are almost always an early indicator of something wrong inside of your body, usually nutrient deficiencies or hormone imbalances.
