Weight Loss Medications

Oral Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants or Anorexiants affect neurotransmitters in the brain: those that affect catecholamines, those that affect serotonin, and those that affect both. They work by increasing the secretion of dopamine, norepinephrine, or serotonin into the synaptic neural cleft, or by inhibiting the reuptake of these neurotransmitters back into the neuron, or by both mechanisms. These medications promote weight loss and when combined with proper nutrition and exercise can lead to sustained weight loss and improved health.

Semaglutide (Wegovy)

The long-awaited FDA approval of semaglutide for weight loss has been considered a “game-changer” by obesity experts. This is because the weight loss in clinical trials is far superior to many other weight loss medications. Weight loss results with semaglutide in clinical trials have shown 15% total weight loss.  Semaglutide is indicated for chronic weight management in adults with a BMI of 27 kg/m² or greater who have at least one weight-related comorbidity, such as type 2 diabetes or hypertension, or in adults with a BMI of at least 30 kg/m².

Lipotropic Injections

A Lipotropic injection contains a solution of lipotropic nutrients that are made up of one or more of the following fat burning compounds: choline, inositol, methionine, amino acids, vitamin b12 and other vitamins and minerals. Each of these properties are important because they each have a key role in utilizing fat, distributing energy, and removing toxins from the body. The overall effect of Lipotropic injections is enhanced weight loss, particularly when they are combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.

Although they are also known as lipo shots, these injections are not related to lipo-suction: an invasive procedure that invariably fails to work in the long-term.

Lipo Shots for Weight Loss

These injections contain a high dose of essential nutrients that enable you to lose weight. If you’re feeling skeptical, you may be asking “how”? Well a lipotropic nutrient is what’s used in the body to promote, encourage, and support the removal of fat from the liver. It also aids in ensuring that excess fat gets burned off for fuel and energy instead of being stored away. Without these lipotropic nutrients, bile and fat can build up in the liver and can cause an array of health problems and disease such as liver failure, cirrhosis, and metabolic issues.

This trapped bile and fat can also cause the metabolism to slow down, and even more severely, it can block fat metabolism completely. This in turn has the ability to wreak havoc on the organs and body because it has interrupted natural fat burning processes and prevented the body from using and discarding fat how it should. This should explain why it was so easy to gain the extra tire around the abdomen and that double chin. It also should explain why it’s extremely difficult to get rid of it, and why diet and exercise may not be enough.

Now that you know what lipotropic nutrients are, and how important they are to the body’s fat burning processes, let’s take a closer look at what exactly is involved with the shots by examining the individual properties that are often used in a lipotropic formula.

Amino Acids

Such as Glutamine, L-Arginine and l-Carnitine have several extremely important biological roles; worthy of superhero status in enabling other compounds to function correctly to stimulate weight loss.
