Our Diet Plans

Lipo-B Injection for Weight Loss

LIPO-B Fat burning injection has proven effective as part of a nutrition-oriented weight management plan. Lipotronic nutrients are compounds that help catalyze the breakdown of fat during metabolism.  They help promote the flow of fat & bile to and from the liver.  In essence, they produce a “decongesting” effect on the liver and promote improved liver function and fat metabolism. Lipotropic formulas are routinely used by nutrition-oriented physicians to help with weight management.  The Lipo-B injections contain methionine, inositol, choline and vitamin B-12.

Methionine

Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions.  It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release. Methionine works as an antioxidant (free radical deactivator) through conversion to L-cysteine to help neutralize toxins.

Inositol

Inositol, is a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex and is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol.  Inositol also participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

Choline

Choline is considered one of the B-Complex vitamins as well as a lipotropic nutrient. It is present in the body of all living cells and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin.  Choline appears to be associated with the utilization of fats and cholesterol in the body. It prevents fats from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats into the cells. It is essential for the health of the liver and kidneys.

Vitamin B-12

Lipo-B shots also contain Vitamin B-12 which is involved in metabolism and energy production. It works in concert with the other lipotropic agents to help metabolize fat.

Important Notice

There may be side effects of the prescription drugs as well, though generally not something that you won’t be able to deal with.

Nonetheless, when you keep your diet plan reduced in fat, you will not deal with all of these difficulties.

Results may vary—no drug should be used as a wholesale solution for everyone.  Risk factors should be discussed and effective communications between you and your caregivers is imperative for success

We view prescription medications for weight loss as catalytic tools that may help “jump start” an effective managed weight loss program.  However, these tools must be combined with a shared commitment to a new lifestyle.  The acceptance of lifestyle changes is a great challenge of most all of us.  Relearning your eating patterns, adopting a dynamically active lifestyle, and other interventions such a stress management should be considered vital elements of a path to a new, healthier you!  We are here to help you along that path.

Success Stories

"I went to Dr. Powers because some of my friends had a few skin procedures done and they looked fabulous. I was very nervous but after it was over, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. There was absolutely no pain involved at all. It was so simple. And now, I have people telling me that my skin looks really pretty. I’ve never in my life had anyone tell me that I have pretty skin, even when I was young! I owe it all to Dr. Powers. I would recommend him to anyone (and I do)."
