Losing unwanted body fat is one of the hardest things to do. Driven by primal instinct, your body stores excess calories as fat so you will have an ample supply in case of famine. When you induce famine by way of restricting your calories, your body holds onto stored fat for dear life, slowing your metabolism to a crawl.
Once you hit a weight loss plateau, it is hard to stay motivated with your fitness and nutrition plan, and that is when most people give up. Why starve if you can’t lose weight anyway? Thankfully, there is a solution.
Micronutrient Therapy for Weight Loss
Micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and antioxidants are nutrients your body needs in small amounts. When you combine exercise and calorie restriction, it is easy for micronutrients in your body to become depleted, even if you are eating whole fresh foods. Yet in order for your body to produce energy and function at its peak, micronutrients are essential.
Since you are trying to lose weight, eating more food is not the answer, and skipping exercise is not an option. Yet dieting and exercise without adequate micronutrient support can leave you feeling fatigued, sluggish and unmotivated. Without adequate micronutrients, your immune system may crash, leaving you vulnerable to infections.
Micronutrient therapy, via intramuscular injections or by IV infusion, bypasses your digestive tract, sending micronutrients directly into your body where they can migrate to depleted cells and organs, and stimulate metabolism.
Popular weight loss micronutrient therapies include:
- Lipotropic Injections: Lipotropic nutrients help your body break down fat. Choline occurs naturally and helps to remove fats and bile from your liver, where fat is metabolized. Methionine helps to remove toxins from your body, and betaine hydrochloride and oxibetaine are lipotropics that recruit fat to be burned for energy, increasing your metabolism.
- Vitamin B12: Often called the energy vitamin, B12 is known for its metabolism boosting properties. Because it is a water soluble vitamin, your body cannot store it, and it easily becomes depleted. B12 plays an important role in brain and nervous system function, and in the formation of red blood cells. After a B12 shot, most people notice a significant boost in mood and energy.
- Glutathione: Glutathione is found inside every cell of your body, with the highest concentration found in your liver. Known as a sulfuric tripeptide, glutathione consists of three amino acids: Glutamic acid, L-cysteine and L-glycine. Depleted glutathione contributes to oxidative stress, which is harmful to your cells. It also plays a primary role in healthy liver function, enabling your liver to metabolize fat more efficiently.
