Losing weight can be difficult when you don’t seem to have the energy to keep up with your exercise routine – and that goes double when it doesn’t seem like you’re making any progress because of a slow metabolism. So, what are you supposed to do when your weight loss journey is less about burning fat than it is about burning time? You find a new solution. At Simply Slim Medical in Bethesda, MD we know the helping hand you need to achieve your weight loss goals can be as simple as regular B12 injections with lipoplex and lipotropic.
How Often Should You Get B12 Injections?
The frequency of your treatment is entirely dependent on your body’s individual needs. There are several factors that are taken into consideration, such as your age, your activity level, your body-fat ratio, your weight loss goals, your metabolic rate, and your overall energy levels. Even your body’s ability to absorb the B12 vitamin is a factor. These factors can help determine how much and how often you need B12 treatment to jumpstart your metabolism and start burning fat at higher rates.
However, many patients find that regular injections are the best way to maintain results. For patients who are naturally B12 deficient, more frequent injections about once a month may be ideal. For other patients, an injection every three to four months may suffice. We will help you determine the best frequency to get the results you want.
How Quick Are Results?
This depends on the type of results you’re talking about. If the results you’re looking for are about boosting your energy and metabolism, you will notice an improvement in your energy levels within 1 to 3 days, as well as notice that you might be hungry more frequently as your metabolism rate increases.
For fat burning and weight loss, these injections produce gradual results. If you have regular treatments, you will notice an improvement in how quickly you can shed fat and lose weight over the course of several months.
Why Is B12 Important?
B12 plays a very significant role in the body’s neurological and circulatory systems. Healthy cells in both of these systems are supported by B12, specifically in the creation of new cells within these systems. Low B12 in the body is also associated with having poor energy, frequent fatigue, and weakness. In fact, people who have B12 deficiency are at higher risk of megaloblastic anemia, which essentially means the body does not have the ability to make enough red blood cells to carry oxygen through the body and leads to chronic fatigue.
However, B12 is also important for those who do not have significant deficiencies. All types of B vitamins have important roles in producing energy for the body, which is why B12 has been the go-to metabolic booster for the last few decades. Simply put, the more energy you have, the more fat you can potentially burn through correct diet and exercise.
What Do Lipotropic B12 Treatments Do?
At our clinic, our special lipotropic B12 injections are a cocktail of vitamins and amino acids that help your body process fat at quicker rates. Lipotropic amino acids include methionine, inositol, and choline to mobilize fat and adenosine and L-carnitine to increase your metabolism. Put together, these fat-busting amino acids combined with energy-boosting B12 give you all the resources you need to quickly remove fat. In particular, this cocktail protects and increases the performance of your liver to help you filter fat and other toxins from the body.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Vitamin B12 treatments are considered safe for one very simple reason – B vitamins are water-soluble, which means your body naturally filters out any excess vitamin through urination. In a very practical sense, B12 and other water-soluble vitamins are the safest and easiest nutrients to supplement because your body takes what it needs and gets rid of what it doesn’t. This particular treatment is safe to have regularly for this exact reason.
What Are Other Benefits of This Treatment?
There are several reasons why you might consider this treatment. For example, having sluggish energy or a poor appetite might be reasons to pursue this treatment. Another reason might be purely to help you lose weight and burn fat more quickly. Other benefits of this treatment include:
Protect Bone Health
As we grow older, we are all at higher risk of bone disease such as osteopenia, which is a condition that makes your bones more fragile as you age. For mature adults, weight loss is sometimes associated with bone density loss, so it is important to supplement your weight loss journey with Vitamin B12, which protects your bone health.
Lower Risk of Heart Disease
B12 is a vitamin that can help prevent your risk of heart disease. Why? Vitamin B12 is associated with lowering the levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that is associated with cardiovascular disease.
When your B12 is low, you are likely more prone to have a low mood or even symptoms of depression. One of the most common symptoms of depression is fatigue, which can be addressed with regular B12 treatments.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Most people who are interested in boosting their metabolism to kickstart their weight loss journey are good candidates for this treatment. Because this treatment is safe for everyone, it does not have any side effects risks or medical restrictions. Adults who want to improve energy and burn fat are good candidates.
