You’ve probably heard of the B-vitamin shot that helps to burn fat… it exists! However, it’s not magic, but it will improve your body’s ability to use fat for fuel.
Lipotropic B- shots are unique in that they help to boost fat metabolism, by helping the liver to metabolize fat, and the muscle cells to use fat for energy.
Lipotropic B- shot Benefits:
- Increased fat breakdown via better use of fat to make energy for your muscles and brain
- Improved detoxification process in liver and cells
- Increased cellular energy, increasing your mental and physical energy
- And long-term use has shown an increase in your muscles ability to burn more fat during exercise
- Especially beneficial for people with methylation defects, such as MTHFR or COMT
- Can also support cognitive function, such as improved learning ability and memory
In addition, our shots are special in that we use the best, most absorbable forms of B12 – Methyl B12, Adenosyl B12, and Hydroxy B12 – the powerhouses of B-vitamin energy production.
Our specially formulated Lipotropic B-shots include:
- Adenosyl B12
- Hydroxy B12
- Methyl B12
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B5
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B1
Most people begin to see a difference in energy by the 3rd or 4th injection. Shots can be done one to three times per week, and typically the closer together the shots are performed, the faster the results.
If your main goal is weight loss – a comprehensive approach is the best approach.
We find the Lipotropic B12 shots to be a great addition to a well-thought out diet and exercise plan, such as Keto diet with Intermittent Fasting, or Paleo diet, or a version of Whole 30. The best diet approach is the one that truly works best for you. We are here to guide you with this process – help you review your options, to optimize your health, weight loss and energy.
Sometimes there are other factors at play here that need to be addressed related to hard-to-lose weight.
For instance, maybe your thyroid needs support, or maybe you are moderately gluten intolerant, and this is causing gut inflammation and weight gain. Or maybe you’re exhausted due to low adrenal function and have a positive MTHFR gene that has not been supported. These things can be tested for, and this is what we love to do.
We offer personalized medicine, tailored to your goals and health needs.

Additional interesting information on the ingredients in our metabolism-boosting lipotropic B12 shots:
Carnitine – to shuttle fat into the mitochondria to help use fat to make energy, also helps to make ATP, to burn fat. Also helps to expedite the removal of waste from the metabolism process, and antioxidant.
Acetyl L-carnitine – helps with brain energy, reduces cognitive decline found in aging, other medical conditions. L-carnitine expedites the use of fat for energy. More carnitine in the muscle equals more energy that comes from fat burning, as opposed to glucose/sugar burning.
In 2011, Journal of Physiology – supplemented L-carnitine for 6 months, the muscle had a gain of 20% carnitine – increasing fat utilization by an additional 20%. Also increased work output by over 10%, resulting in stronger muscles.
Taking Acetyl – L-carnitine for 4 weeks in one study, reduced the effect of age-related carnitine decline in the brain and liver, and its ability to use fat.
Another study showed a direct ACL to improved memory function, possibly due to an increase in Aceytlcholine – a brain NT that helps with memory, especially short-term memory.
L-carnitine is an amino acid which supports athletic performance, conversion of fat to energy, improvements in cardiac muscle function, and cellular metabolism. It also has been found to benefit energy levels, reproductive health, appetite control, and carbohydrate metabolism.
Vitamin B12 is given in the form of MethylB12, which is an ideal form of B12 for the creation of energy, lean muscle, detoxification and improving brain function. Methylcobalamin is also involved in cardiovascular function, sleep, blood cell formation, and nerve function.
L-methionine is an essential amino acid that supports cartilage building blocks and numerous pathways in the body including the formation of SAMe, which is fantastic for joints and the brain alike. Studies have shown that l-methionine promotes healthy cellular metabolism, enzyme activity, and glutathione concentration (our super antioxidant). Methionine also supports cholesterol metabolism and detoxification.
Inositol is a component of the B-complex family. Inositol supports healthy mood and emotional wellness, and reduces tension. It does this through supporting our ‘feel-good’ brain neurotransmitters. There is research Inositol may also support a healthy reproductive system.
Choline is an amino acid which assists in fatty acid metabolism, healthy nervous system performance, and brain health.
