Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is an essential nutrient required for DNA synthesis and ATP production. Commonly found in animal products and food, this vitamin helps weight loss by increasing energy level and fat metabolism. A deficiency in B12 results in fatigue, mood changes, and memory loss, preventing you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level. If you are a vegetarian or have a diet low in meat, you may need B12 supplementation.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) is necessary for the proper functioning of the muscles, nervous system and heart. Thiamin deficiency has been known to cause insomnia, fatigue, depression, constipation, irritability, heart problems and stomach problems. Thiamin is abundant in organ meats, soybeans, egg yolks, poultry, broccoli, and asparagus.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) works with other B vitamin to produce red blood cells and help generate energy from carbohydrates. Vitamin B2 has antioxidant properties by assisting the breakdown of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a compound known for inflammation and linked to heart disease and blood vessel disease. Although deficiency is rare, signs and symptoms of riboflavin deficiency includes: cracks at the corners of the mouth (angular cheilitis), cracked lips, dry skin, inflammation of the lining of the mouth and tongue, mouth ulcers, and iron-deficiency anemia. Riboflavin is found in eggs, organ meats, milk, mushrooms, spinach and other green vegetables.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is required for a healthy liver, healthy skin, hair, and to assist the nervous system function properly. As with other B-complex vitamins, Vitamin B3 help the body convert food into fuel and use fat as energy. Niacin is important in improving blood flow and is oftenly used to improve the circulatory system. Niacin is used as a treatment of high cholesterol, migraine headache, dizziness, and acne. Since niacin improves blood flow, it has been shown to promote relaxation. Niacin can be found in fish such as tuna, sardines, salmon, and poultry (chicken, turkey) and beef. Deficiency can cause indigestion, fatigue, canker sore, vomiting, poor ciculation, and depression.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) is responsible for the production of coenzyme A that is associated with the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates as energy sources. Pantothenic acid is found in organ meats, egg yolk, and broccoli, fish, shellfish, chicken, milk, yogurt, mushrooms, and avocado. Deficiencies are rare, but pantothenic acid deficiency may result in fatigue, insomnia, depression, irritability, vomiting, abdominal and leg muscle cramps.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is an important cofactor to many enzymes involved in lipid and amino acid metabolism as well as the conversion of glycogen to glucose, increasing energy and burning carbs and fat storage. B6 prevents the accumulation of fat, and some experts believe that vitamin B6 increases thyroid hormone function to speed up metabolism resulting in weight loss.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin) is an essential nutrient that is part of the B-complex vitamin for metabolism. Biotin can help grow healthier and stronger hair, skin, and nails. The daily recommended intake is 2.5 mg. Deficiency in biotin causes brittle and thin fingernails, hair loss, conjunctivitis (red eyes), and dermatitis (scaly, red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth), depression, and lack of energy. Biotin is found in whole eggs, meat, and green leafy vegetables.
Our B vitamins injections, such as the lipotrophic fat burning shots include amino acids to boost fat loss. Details on the different amino acids below:
Methionine is an essential amino acid that our body cannot produce, but can only get from food. Methionine is required to make protein to build muscle and create other amino acids, as well as responsible for lipolysis (the breakdown of fat). Methionine is commonly used as an agent to help with weight loss by preventing accumulation of fat in the liver and the cardiovascular system. Also, methionine help regulate blood sugar levels that will allow you to cope with overeating and allow for efficient use of nutrients derived from food.
Choline is a molecule mostly used for either its cognitive boosting properties (turning into acetylcholine, the learning neurotransmitter) or as a liver health agent, able to reduce fatty liver buildup. Found in high amounts in eggs, the yolks in particular.
L-Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid. It is important for blood flow and nitric oxide levels.
L-Theanine is a relaxing and nondietary amino acid found pretty much exclusively in teas from Camellia sinensis (alongside Green Tea Catechins and Caffeine) and is known to promote relaxation without sedation, which helps to mitigate possible side effects of stimulant medications such as phentermine. It appears to be effective at this as well as reducing stress at standard dosages.
L-Carnitine is involved in energy metabolism and mitochondrial protection. It is often used as a brain booster by increasing mental alertness while supporting neurons (brain cells). L-Carnitine has been shown to be very effective at alleviating the side effects of aging, like neurological decline and chronic fatigue. L-Carnitine is found in red meat, dairy, and green leafy vegetables like artichokes, brussels sprouts, collard greens, mustard greens, and kale.
Inositol usually refers to Myo-inositol, a small molecule structurally similar to glucose that is involved in cellular signalling. It is effective in treating insulin resistance and reducing anxiety.
