What’s in a MIC 12?

METHIONINE – an essential amino acid which means it cannot be synthesized in our body so we must get it from other sources. It helps the liver process fats reducing fat build up in the liver which helps to ensure proper functioning of the liver. It is required for Glutathione synthesis. Glutathione is the body’s most abundant, natural antioxidant which is produced in the liver to help us rid our body of toxins. It has a role in creatine synthesis which is a nutrient found primarily in muscle tissue. It is necessary for all muscular function. Methionine also reduces the level of histamine in the body which may be beneficial for anyone with chronic allergies or inflammatory conditions. It is also essential for the formation of healthy collagen used to form and maintain skin, hair, nails, connective tissue and cartilage. Methionine also functions to protect our neurological system.

INOSITOL – a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex. It is closely associated with choline. It functions to aid in the metabolism of fat, reduces cholesterol levels within the blood and helps to convert food into energy. Inositol helps neurons communicate better with the body’s nervous system and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to control mood and appetite. Has been shown to help treat patients with depression, anxiety and OCD. It is now established as a significant mediator of calcium mobilization in the endoplasmic reticulum, the powerhouse of our cells.

CHOLINE – a nutrient that is water soluble. Choline is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol in the body. It helps to prevent accumulation of fat in the liver.

VITAMIN B12 – This is an important water-soluble vitamin with a long list of benefits. Our bodies do not produce vitamin B12, so we rely on getting it in our food. Meat, milk and eggs are a primary source of vitamin B12. While vitamin B12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, factors like stress and poor eating habits can lead to a deficiency. It has a key role in the normal functioning of our neurological system and helps in the formation of healthy red blood cells. Vitamin B12 provides a boost of energy and plays a key role in digestion and metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It has been shown to decrease homocysteine levels which reduces our risk of developing heart attacks, strokes or dementia.

This injection can help facilitate weight loss and boost energy. It aids in the breakdown of fat and in the use of food for energy. Your liver is the key organ in control of your body fat. The combination of these medications helps your liver process fats efficiently making weight loss easier.

Other Weight Loss Considerations

There are 3 primary factors that determine your ability to lose weight and maintain it at a healthy level.

Proper Nutrition:

One critical part of losing weight is the food that you put into your body.

And, here’s another important part of nutrition:

Everybody’s body is different. Some people can eat dairy and feel fine. Some people are allergic to gluten and have adverse reactions even if food is cross-contaminated. Some people have a body type that prefers higher carbs than other people. Nutrition should be individualized to you and your body. Our team of experts gets to know you, your conditions, your health, your food preferences, and more to develop the perfect plan for YOU to help you lose weight, feel better, and regain some confidence.

Physical and Emotional Health:

What conditions (both physical and mental) are you experiencing in your life? Are you extremely stressed? Do you have a food addiction or any other addictions? How do you treat your body? These factors will influence how you can healthily lose weight.

Exercise:

Exercise is another very important aspect to losing weight (physical activity also an important aspect of living a long and healthy life). But, not all exercise is created equal. Nor should every person do the same type of exercise. A 65-year-old man who is severely overweight should not be doing the same exercises as a 23-year-old girl who is only moderately overweight.

Our team of medical experts evaluates your current situation and puts you on a plan to health, weight loss, and longevity.
