What are Lipo Shots or Lipotropic Injections
Lipotropic injections, also referred to as Lipo Shots is a broad term for a number of compounds designed for fat loss, which is why the term can be confusing. These compounds are all designed for one goal, to assist the body in releasing fat from fat stores and processing it for fuel in the liver. In short, Lipotropic injections burn fat.

Lipo Injection Compounds and Combinations
MIC Injections (Methionine, Inositol, Choline)
Most of the time the term Lipo shots is refering to MIC shots. MIC stands for Methionine, Inositol, and Choline.
Methionine: Methionine is an amino acid that the body can’t produce it on it’s own, which means it’s an essential nutrient. Methionine assists the liver in breaking down fats for fuel. In addition, Methionine has been shown to reduce cholesteraol, reduce the build-up of fats in the liver and the blood, and can prevent fatigue. In combonation with Inositol and Choline, Methionine plays an integral role in reducing body fat.

How Do I Do Lipotroppic Shots?
Lipo shots are usually administered via intramuscular injection, which means they require a shot into the muscle tissue. Usually the needle will be about 1-1.5 inches long, administered into the glutes (butt), or thigh. We highly recommend doing the shot in the glute, due to the fact that it usually causes little to no pain at all.
