About B-12 Injections
You worked hard to lose weight. Now keep it off by optimizing your weight management plan with B-12 injections, designed to help your liver and gallbladder process fats more efficiently so fat is “burned off” before it has a chance to settle down in your belly, hips, thighs or other areas of your body.
How They Work
Fat is primarily processed by the liver. When the liver is sluggish or simply isn’t operating at peak performance, fat metabolism slows down, and fat is deposited throughout the body instead of being broken down and eliminated in waste. B-12 injections work by optimizing liver health and function, “ramping up” fat metabolism so your body is able to remove fat more efficiently. B-12 injections include vitamin B-12, known to promote liver health and function, as well as amino acids that aid in fat
Injections vs. Oral Supplements
Both vitamin B-12 and many amino acids are available in pill form, and many people wonder if they can use oral supplements to achieve the same results as B-12 injections.
The answer is no, and here’s why: Oral supplements must pass through the digestive tract before they can be absorbed into your bloodstream, and often, the digestive enzymes and acids degrade vitamins and amino acids, rendering them less effective by the time they reach the bloodstream.
Injections deliver the B-12 and amino acid solution directly to the bloodstream so it can start acting where it’s needed without losing any of its potency. Plus, oral supplements contain fillers and other additives that can cause allergic reactions. B-12 injections have no fillers – just vitamins and other nutrients necessary for optimal fat metabolism.
The amount of each dose and the frequency of dosing depends to some extent on your body mass index, your overall health and your personal goals for weight loss and weight management. As a leading provider of medical weight loss programs, Dr. Weight Loss of Atlanta works closely with each patient to ensure the most appropriate dosage for optimal results.
Potential Side Effects
Both B-12 and the amino acids contained in B-12 injections are beneficial for optimal health, so side effects are few. The most common side effects are slight swelling or redness in the injection sites, side effects that can occur with any injection. Some people have reported an upset stomach or mild diarrhea following treatment, effects that can clear up once the body adjusts to the increased levels of vitamin B-12. A few people have reported mild joint discomfort, fatigue or allergic reactions.
