B-12 vitamin injections are administered to increase energy and metabolism. They are important to keep the brain and nervous system
They are also important for the formation of red blood cells. By synthesizing and regulating DNA, B12 is involved in cellular metabolism. It also plays a vital role in fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Many medications, certain medical conditions, and the normal aging process can lead to a B12 deficiency.
Slim Shot is a vitamin cocktail consisting of B12 and Lipotropics that increases energy and fat elimination. The shots are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver.
The key amino acids used to make these shots are: Vitamin12, Choline, Methione and Inositol.
1) Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
2) Methione is one of the sulphur- containing amino acids (cysteine & cystine are others) and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent fatigue and may be useful in some cases of allergy
because it reduces histamine release. Patients with a Sulfur allergy should not take this injection.
Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
