Lipotropic Injections and Fat Burning

hcg diet portlandAt The Natural Path, we have been offering our uniquely tailored blend of Lipotropic nutrients; high potency B complex and high dose methylated B-12.  We call this specific blend of nutrients the Slim Shot.  We began offering these injections as part of our HCG Diet protocol about 15 years ago.  Depending upon the patient we are working with, we can add other nutrients to this injection to help with specific issues. We now use this Slim shot injection  with all of our wellness programs and our patients LOVE them.  Many of them come to get our Slim Shot  weekly and have done so for years.

Benefits of Lipotropic Injections

Many of our patients love the energy, mental clarity and focus that they experience after the slim shot. As a physician, I really love what the methionine, choline and insoitol do for the liver. With my weight loss patients, the lipotropic nutrients in the injection will help the liver to process the fat they are breaking down.   B vitamins are co-factors for many cellular reactions that take place in the body and therefore these injections can assist the immune system, neurological system and metabolism in general.


The Ingredients in the Lipo B Injection or Slim Shot

Our Slim Shot is made of the highest quality ingredients and each injections contains:

  • Methylcobalamin or a methylated form of Vitamin B-12
  • High Potency B Complex – Thiamine (B-1), Riboflain (B-2), Pyridoxine (B-6)  & Dexpanthenol (B-5)
  • L-Carnitine
  • Lipotropic nutrients: Methionine, Inositol and Choline

What do these Nutrients in the Lipo B Injection or Slim Shot Do?


Vitamin B-12 or Methylcobalamin — B-12 is known as the great energizer vitamin.  Using this nutrient while following a low calorie diet such as the HCG Diet has been shown to help with energy and alertness.  B-12 is also known to help our DNA and with general cellular health and function.  Methylcobalamin is a super bio available form of B-12 meaning that it is easy for thebody to absorb and utilize. Methylcobalamin has become known for its positive effects on cognitive function.


Super B complex – This is a specific blend of B complex that helps to energize the body on a cellular level.  B vitamins are a co factor for almost every cellular reaction that takes place. All of the B vitamins in the complex collectively help to assist the body in dealing with stress, help the body to burn and utilize fat, improve cardiovascular function, boost brain function and help with metabolism.


MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline) – These specific Lipotropic nutrients are amino acids in the body that play a role in the breakdown and metabolism/removal of fat from the liver.  Methionine, Inositol and choline are very protective to the liver.


L-Carnitine – This nutrient plays a role in the break down of body fat for metabolic energy.  Studies show that     oral doses of carnitine can increase fat break down and decrease muscular fatigue after a work out.  It is difficult to get enough carnitine via an oral dose to have a storng effect on fat break down.  With injections, you bypass the gastro intestinal system to increase absorption.  With our injectable form, you get the equivalent oral dose of 2000 mg L carnitine.
