What is the Skinny Shot?
Many patients come to us either requesting a “Skinny Shot” or asking for more information about them. Without a doubt, it is one of our most popular nutrient injections – and for good reason! Below we explore what the “LipoSlim,” “Skinny Shot,” or “Lipotropic Injection” is and how it works.
How does it work?
“Lipotropics,” or fat-burning substances, work in numerous ways to promote weight loss by including these critical components:
- Methionine – an amino acid found in many proteins. Methionine plays a critical role in starting the process of making new proteins inside your cells, something that is continuously occurring as older proteins break down (such as with protein depletion following exercise). This process helps build muscle and support your cells. It also provides support to the liver and gall bladder to optimize fat burning.
- Choline – distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body, a component of lipotropics that is essential for fat metabolism.
- Inositol – helps burn fat and aids the liver in getting rid of fat while also influencing the action of insulin, a hormone essential for blood sugar control. Inositol also helps relieve depression and anxiety by affecting chemical messengers in your brain such as serotonin and dopamine.
The Skinny Shot is excellent for:
- Chronic fatigue
- Weight loss plateaus
- Thyroid disorder
- Slow metabolism
Skinny Shots for aggressive weight/fat loss should be given once or twice weekly.
Essentially, the amino acids that are injected into the muscle encourage the liver to optimize and speed up the process of metabolism. When the body’s metabolic power is boosted, there is a temporary increase in the normal metabolic functions.
The Skinny Shot in combination with a well-balanced nutritional and exercise plan can help patients achieve weight loss results more effectively than just eating well and exercising!
Patients can also expect to simultaneously increase their energy levels both via the fat released and the energy-promoting properties of vitamin B-12.
This easy and effective nutrient injection is great for many people, but especially for those looking to maximize their health and weight loss or who have hit a weight loss “plateau” and are seeking ways to jump-start their metabolism.
Lipotropic injections might be one of the best shots you’ll ever receive. Thanks to advancements in science and research in medicine and natural therapies, we can use certain vitamins and nutrients in so many ways that have been scientifically proven to benefit the body, brain, and metabolism!
Nutrient injections are safe, natural, effective, and treat so many different problems with no downtime. Side effects are extremely rare. They are a great complement to hard work in the gym, meal prepping, a clean and non-toxic health and beauty regimen, and all the other ways in which we give back to our health!
