Are you tired of struggling to lose weight?
Are you stuck on a never-ending diet with no results? Do you wonder is working properly when it stays the same after all that exercise? Or maybe you think a thyroid problem is holding you back?
Before you give up on weight loss, consider this:
You might be lacking certain vitamins and nutrients required to burn fat rapidly. Those particular nutrients are often referred to as “lipotropics”. The problem is that there are many reasons why our body may be deficient in these essential fat burning nutrients including: poor diet, stress, chronic illness, excess alcohol, low GI absorption. It’s no wonder we aren’t able to burn fat efficiently!
Replenishing those essential vitamins and minerals with Lipotropic Injections may be what you’ve been missing all along! On our Solutions 800 Diet with minimal exercise, the benefits of Lipo Burn (MIC) Shots is usually fast and dramatic, without the side effects that can accompany other weight loss products. When you read more about lipotropic agents, the only question you will ask is “where can I buy them?”
What does lipotropic mean?
If you breakdown the medical term lipotropic you have two latin syllables; lipo, which means “fat”, and tropic which means “to have a love/affinity for something”. So “Lipotropic” means “Fat-loving”. In other words, these nutrients are attracted to fat cells where they help to breakdown fat and transport it out of our cells!
The process of burning fat rapidly is, biochemically speaking, very demanding. It can, however, be enhanced by 3 lipotropic nutrients called “MIC”. MIC is an acronym for three amino acids: Methionine, Inositol and Choline. While each may individually affect the mobilization of fats, the combination provides synergistic benefits.
While knowledge of lipotropics dates back to the 1930’s, the widely popular injections used for weight loss peaked in the 2000’s. They have been generally regarded as safe and effective. The physiological role of each compound and the effects of supplementation are described below.
Prevents Storage of Fat in the abdomen

Methionine is a sulfur-containing branched-chain amino acid. A precursor for cellular methylation reactions, methionine plays an important role in lipid metabolism, polyamine synthesis, immune function, heavy metal chelation, and maintenance of redox balance.4Conversely, dietary methionine restriction in rodents increased energy expenditure, improved insulin resistance, and enhanced lipolysis and fatty acid oxidation in adipose tissue.
The lipotropic effects of methionine may be attributed to its metabolite S-adenosyl methionine (SAM). SAM is synthesized from methionine via an energy-consuming reaction. SAM administered orally or by injection has been investigated as a treatment for liver diseases, osteoarthritis, and depression. The benefits bestowed by SAM may be due to its role as a methyl donor in biochemical processes governing lipid homeostasis, DNA stability, gene expression, and neurotransmitter release.[3,4,5]

Inositol is a family of cyclic sugar alcohols consisting of nine stereoisomers of hexahydroxycyclohexane. The stereoisomers of the inositol family are myo-, scyllo-, muco-, neo-, allo-, epi-, cis-, and the enantiomers L- and D-chiro-inositol. Of these, myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol are among the most abundant biologically active forms. The enzyme epimerase converts myo-inositol to the D-chiro-inositol isomer, maintaining organ-specific ratios of the two isomers. Physiologically, the concentration of myo-inositol is several times higher than D-chiro-inositol in most tissues.
The myo-inositol derivative phosphatidylinositol is an important component of the lipid bilayer of cell membranes. Phosphatidylinositol and its phosphorylated forms act as second messengers that are involved in a host of cellular functions including membrane trafficking, autophagy, cell migration, and survival. Disruption of phosphoinositide lipid signaling is implicated in cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders.
Inositol has shown clinical benefits in treating disorders associated with metabolic syndrome. Inositol supplementation has been effectively used to accelerate weight loss, reduce fat mass, improve serum lipid profiles and upregulate the expression of genes involved in lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Myo-inositol alone or in combination with D-chiro-inositol significantly reduced weight, BMI, and waist-hip circumference ratios in overweight/obese women with PCOS. Weight loss, reduction in fat mass and increase in lean mass were accelerated when inositol supplementation was accompanied by a low-calorie diet. In addition, inositol supplementation was associated with lower rate of gestational diabetes and preterm delivery in pregnant women. Currently, research is being performed to assess whether inositol may be used in treating various cancers.
Removes Stored Fat From Liver

Choline is an essential nutrient required for optimal functioning of various tissues including the liver, muscles, and brain. Since choline breaks down fat as an energy source, choline supplementation caused rapid fat and weight loss in female athletes. Only small amounts of choline are synthesized by the human body, necessitating its intake from external sources. In the body, about 95% of the total choline pool is converted to phosphatidylcholine – an essential component of the phospholipid bilayer and the predominant phospholipid in most mammalian cells. Choline also undergoes acetylation to form the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Choline deficiency causes hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease) and leads to loss of muscle membrane integrity. Chronic choline deficiency may also increase the risk of developing cancer.
Both choline and methionine are a source of methyl groups for the one-carbon transmethylation pathway and serve hepato-protective functions. Culturing hepatocytes in choline and methionine-deficient media impaired VLDL secretion. In addition, choline can donate methyl groups to support methionine regeneration, possibly contributing to their synergistic lipotropic effects.

Lipo Burn Shots
The best way to burn fat is to supplement MIC with Lipo Burn (MIC) Shots. Our injections are formulated at an FDA-registered compound pharmacy and are available by prescription only. Injections provide the advantage of better bioavailability by avoiding enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract.
Compound pharmacies make a variety of lipotropic formulas with names like “Lipo Shot”, “Lipo B”, “MIC”, “Lipotropic Injection”, “Skinny Shot”, “Skinny Pills”, “Super Skinny Shot”. Almost all contain MIC, and some contain other ingredients (e.g. Lidocaine, B6, B5, B12, Carnitine, B1, B2, and more)
At Solutions Weight Loss, we prefer to use Lipo Burn Shots, made of 100% pure MIC. We offer B12 shots separately for those who require an additional boost for energy and weight loss. In this way, we can maximize your weight loss, with fewer ingredients. Sometimes, less is better. You’re welcome! 😉
Where can i inject lipo burn (MIC)?
It is recommended that anyone who administers an injection should receive training and guidance from a professional health expert. Solutions Weight Loss will train you to inject Lipo Burn subcutaneously at home. With subcutaneous injections, the needle is inserted just below the skin into abdominal fat.
Do I have to do injections to be in the program?
No. Everything is optional, so you decide! Lipo Burn Injections are highly recommended, but not mandatory. You can still lose weight if you decide to forego the injections. However, these are tiny shots that do not hurt. We can make you very comfortable doing the injection on the 1st visit, even if you are a needle-phobe.
