Lipotropic compounds help to break down fats, also known as lipids.

You can consume lipotropics through injections or supplements. Some of the types available through prescriptions are:

  • Choline
  • L-Methionine
  • Taurine
  • Inositol
  • Chromium
  • L-Carnitine
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin B-6

How lipotropics work

Lipotropic agents support the functioning of the liver, which is key in our metabolic processes. By stimulating the liver, lipotropics help the metabolism to break down more fats and use them for energy.

They also reduce cholesterol.

Choline, one of the most well-known types of lipotropics, is particularly effective at promoting liver health and therefore metabolic processes. However, other lipotropic compounds can also produce similar results.

Benefits of lipotropics

As mentioned already, lipotropics help to stimulate the liver and therefore the metabolism, also reducing cholesterol. But that’s not all they can help with.

Because lipotropics are so beneficial for the liver, they might also benefit our mental health, fighting conditions like anxiety and depression.

Although there’s limited evidence, some believe lipotropics can also help with weight loss since it boosts the metabolism.

Prescription-based weight loss with lipotropics

Pharmaceuticals and supplements can help us with weight loss by interacting with our brain. As part of a biochemical signaling pathway, they make the hormones send signals that reduce our appetite while stimulating our metabolism, promoting weight loss.

When a signal is sent, the hypothalamus (a master regulator) secretes hormones and regulates the thyroid through the anterior pituitary, which influences the metabolism.

Lipotropic injections may be capable of producing this reaction and signaling.

How to use lipotropics to lose weight

There are various aspects to losing weight. Most approaches focus on burning fat, boosting the metabolism, cutting calories, and reducing sugars.

To maximize effectiveness, it’s best to tackle weight loss from multiple different directions. Although lipotropics are one essential element to the weight loss puzzle, they’re not the only element you need.

Also make sure you’re following a healthy diet with restricted calories, limiting your carbohydrates, and exercising.

Conventional weight loss programs often incorporate lipotropic tablets alongside these tactics.

Lipotropic research

Sadly, research on lipotropics in the form of injections is limited, but there are a few studies on injections.

In 2012, McCarthy et al found that lipotropic weight loss tablets stimulate the rate of the metabolism and improves the breakdown of free fatty acids like plasma glycerol.

Caffeine is linked to lipotropic activity, although it’s not a lipotropic compound itself, and various research papers have found it can help encourage weight loss. Some believe that lipotropic injections could have a similar effect.

Where to access lipotropic agents

If you think lipotropic compounds could help you meet your weight loss or other goals, you might be interested in buying some.

Here are some of the most readily available tablets for oral consumption:

  • ECA (ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin)
  • MIC (methionine, inositol, and chromium)
  • Folic acid, methyl, and pyridoxine
  • Niacin (inositol)

If you’d prefer an injection, you could try:

  • B12 (cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin)
  • L-Carnitine
  • GAC (glutamine, arginine, and carnitine)
  • Methyl MIC, MIC, and B12
  • MIC plus
  • Pyridoxine (B6)
  • Special MIC
  • Vitamin amino blend
  • Vitamin B-complex

 

To ensure you make the right choice for you and don’t compromise your safety, contact your physician before taking any supplements or injections.
