The vitamin cocktail included in the B6, B12 and Lipotropic (MIC) shots are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate) within the liver. The key amino acids used to make these shots are: Vitamin B6, B12, Choline, Methione, and Inositol.
Vitamin B6 has proven to benefit patients desiring a higher level of energy. B6 is part of over 100 enzymes used in amino acid (protein) metabolism as well as lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It is also involved in other areas of metabolism including a number of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.
Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
Methione is one of the sulphur-containing amino acids (cysteine & cystine are others) 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 hista- mine release. Patients with a Sulfa (Sulfonamide) allergy should not take this injection.
Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmit- ter known to control mood and appetite.
