Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) injections, also known as Lipotropic Injections (Lipo-C / Lipo-B), can be used in weight loss management. MIC targets the primary fatty deposits of the body and helps to release the build up. Lipotropic has many fat burning substances. It is composed of inositol, which helps to remove fat build up in the liver, while choline helps to disperse cholesterol to prevent it from accumulating on one part of the body. When methionine is added to the mix, the fat burning process is amplified. In addition, when coupled with vitamin B-12 the metabolic process gains a boost while also supplying an overall feeling of additional energy.

 

How do MIC Injections Work?

When MIC injections are injected into the body, amino acids are released which directs the liver to increase its metabolic processes.  This in turn causes an increase in a feeling of overall energy levels. As the amino acids burn off through the process, many will feel a noticeable increase in energy levels as the body gradually returns to a normal metabolic rate.

When coupled with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, MIC injections can help rid the body of fat while simultaneously increasing energy levels.

 

What are Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) injections made from?

Methionine

The “M” in MIC Injection, represents a series of essential amino acids whose role is to assist in the breakdown of fats within the liver while also helping to lower cholesterol levels. Naturally, the body typically gains methionine by consuming food such as cheese, eggs, fish, meat, spinach, potatoes, Brazilian nuts, and sesame seeds, but if high concentrations are wanted, with a more targeted approach, supplementation is needed.

Other reported benefits of methionine include:

  • Reduction in risk of liver disease
  • Improved skin tone and elasticity
  • Stronger hair and nails
  • Improved cardiovascular and muscular functions.

 

Inositol

The “I” in MIC Injection, stands for inositol which creates signals and serves as a messenger between molecules. Typically, inositol is consumed through foods such as nuts, beans, grains, melons, and oranges. Those with low levels of inositol are more prone to high cholesterol, hair loss, vision problems, constipation, depression, panic attacks, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and fatty liver.

Inositol helps to:

  • Strengthen the structure of cells
  • Improve the communication between nerve synapses
  • Helps with the metabolism of fat
  • Helps reduce blood cholesterol
  • Helps to reduce appetite
  • Helps to improve mood

 

Choline

The “C” in MIC Injection, stands for choline. Choline is an essential nutrient that helps to transport and remove waste products from the liver. This in turn helps to reduce fats and cholesterol levels.  When fats and cholesterol levels are low, people are less prone to issues with their endocrine, cardiac and hepatic systems. Choline is typically consumed through foods such as peanuts, soybeans, wheat, chicken, fish, beef, cauliflower, eggs, and lettuce, but its concentration can be boosted through injections.

 

 Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B-12)

Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B-12.  Its primary role is to help the replication process of DNA, improve nervous system function and form blood cells. Typically, B-12 is found in foods such as fish, shellfish, meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Key benefits of B-12 include:

  • Increased energy
  • Increased metabolism
  • Promotes usage of stored fat
  • Helps to detox the body
  • Help to increase red blood cell production
  • Promotes a healthy liver
  • Promotes a healthier sleep
  • Reduces appetite
  • Increases mood

What-is-Glutathione-1200x675.jpg

Glutathione is an antioxidant resulting from a combination of the amino acids glycine, L-cysteine and L-glutamic acid. Also known as GSH, glutathione is naturally produced in the liver and helps to fight against free radicals.  When the quantity of free radicals outnumber the quantity of antioxidants in the body, cells begin to oxidate. When oxidation occurs, blood pressure increases, there is an increased risk of diabetes and the body begins to age physically. Glutathione’s purpose is to help repair and build tissues by stimulating chemical reactions and proteins in the body. It helps to detoxify the body and produce necessary enzymes and hormones for optimal health.

Factors which may influence the body’s glutathione levels include poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress, but the most common factor of declining levels of glutathione is progressing age.

Glutathione is active in:

  • Metabolizing toxins and cancer causing substances
  • Breaking down nutrients for increase immune response
  • Repairing and creating DNA
  • Produce hormonal effects through proteins
  • Activating enzymes

 

Benefits of Glutathione

When there is an internal imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, cells undergo oxidative stress. When oxidative levels get too high, the body is at a high risk of developing multiple diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and arthritis. Glutathione helps to reduce oxidative stress which in turn helps you to reduce your risk of disease.

 

Impact of glutathione

  1. Reduce the physical appearance of psoriasis
  2. Prevent cancer progression
  3. Repair cell damage of those with fatty liver disease
  4. Improve insulin resistance
  5. Increase blood circulation
  6. Reduce side effects of neurological conditions such as twitching or tremors
  7. Reduce oxidative stress
  8. Help control diabetes

What-is-Oxytocin-2.png
25/Aug/2022

Oxytocin is created in the hypothalamus and plays a major role in sending chemical messages to promote human behavior.

 

Primary role of Oxytocin

Oxytocin helps females with their reproductive system. During labor, oxytocin helps the uterine muscles contract. Through positive feedback, when contractions start during childbirth, oxytocin is released and as more contractions arise, more oxytocin is increased to increase intensity and frequency. Once the baby is born the secretion of oxytocin stops. Not only does oxytocin help aid in childbirth it also helps to deliver the placenta and reduce the risks of heavy bleeding. In addition, oxytocin supports the signals of lactation. When the nipples are stimulated, oxytocin production secretes which helps transport milk down out of the nipple. Once the baby stops suckling, oxytocin secretion also halts.

On the other hand, oxytocin in males helps to transport sperm and it also helps produce testosterone in the testes.

In both males and females, oxytocin has increased effects on sexual arousal and romantic interactions. For this reason it is commonly known as the “Love Hormone”.

 

Oxytocin: The Love Hormone

Studies have shown oxytocin levels are very high during romantic interactions and sexual activity. Sexual activity has the ability to stimulate the secretion of oxytocin and holds a important role in erections and orgasms. For women specifically, oxytocin helps to contract the uterine walls to help transport sperm.

In addition, there is an emotional connection with oxytocin. Oxytocin affects emotional, cognitive and social behaviors. For instance, oxytocin is linked to relaxation, trust and psychological stability. This in turn helps to reduce stress and anxiety.


Menopause-1200x800.jpg
09/May/2022

Symptoms associated with menopause can be treated using Hormorme Replacement Therapy (HRT). These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia (inability to sleep), fatigue (tiredness), mood swings, low libido, vaginal dryness and weight gain. Age, family history and personal medical history all affect the severity of menopausal symptoms. The most common factor in the menopausal stage of life has to do with low levels of estrogen and progesterone produced by a female’s ovaries.

What is the purpose of estrogen? What does estrogen do?

Estrogen plays various roles in maintaining proper body function.

  • Helps to line the uterus for possible implantation of a fertilized egg.
  • Monitors and helps balance the amount of calcium utilized by the body to help prevent osteoporosis.
  • Helps to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.

What is the purpose of progesterone? What does progesterone do?

Progesterone plays multiple roles within the body.
● Helps to prepare the uterus for implantation of a fertilized egg.
● Aids in the maintenance of pregnancy.
● Regulates blood sugar.
● Improves mood and sleep.

Which symptoms does hormone replacement therapy relieve in women?

As the age of menopause approaches, ovaries start to decline in their production of estorgen and progesterone. This, in turn, may cause uncomfortable changes and symptoms within the body. Common symptoms associated with menopause are:
● Mood swings
● Hot flashes
● Night sweats
● Low libido
● Vaginal dryness
● Fatigue
● Trouble sleeping

What can women expect with Hormone Replacement Therapy?

HRT has the ability to boost hormones to higher levels which help relieve those uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause. The first step in finding out if HRT is right for you is by consulting with a healthcare provider to review your symptoms, family history and goals. A blood panel will be requested in order to best understand and analyze deficiencies in the body, including hormone levels. Once reviewed, your healthcare provider will create a customized treatment plan catered to your specific needs. After 10 weeks of treatment, the provider will evaluate your progress to ensure that the products and dosages from your treatment plan are giving you optimal results. Once the provider confirms the treatment that will yield the best results, he/she will meet with you in person every 20 weeks to ensure everything is going according to plan.

Does having a uterus influence the decision on whether or not HRT is right for me?

Yes, the absence or presence of a uterus does influence which hormone replacement therapy care plan is best for you.

If a uterus is present, estrogen and progesterone are used alongside each other. If estrogen is not taken with progesterone, risk of cancer increases within the lining of the uterus. During normal menstruation, the lining of the uterus sheds, but when estrogen levels increase in the body without the release of the uterine lining, cancer can develop. Progesterone helps reduce the risk of cancer by thinning the uterine lining. For this reason, some women may experience monthly bleeding.

If you do not have a uterus and have had a hysterectomy, you won’t need to take progesterone.

Health Benefits of HRT in women

● Reduce risk of osteoporosis and breaking of bones
● Improve sense of mental well-being
● Lower risk of colon cancer
● Lower risk of diabetes
● Relieves pains of the joints
● Reduces the risk of tooth loss

How long does someone take hormone replacement therapy for?

The dosage of medication and duration of the treatment plan are custom to each individual as hormone levels, severity of symptoms and personal goals differ from one person to the next. It is highly recommended that you take the lowest possible dose of hormone therapy that works for you. Throughout the process, monitor your routine, progress, and symptoms and attend follow- up appointments to evaluate your care.
