WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
Phentermine: By stimulating the hypothalamus gland and effecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite, it is highly effective. This program consists of taking a pill daily to curb appetite, along with a healthy diet and exercise to maximize results.
WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
B12 & MIC “Skinny Shots”: Vitamin B12 combined with MIC in an injection is used to facilitate weight loss and boost energy, aiding in the use of food for energy and in the breakdown of fat. These shots are received on a weekly basis at Trilogy Medical Center.
When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, Phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and to exercise. Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.
The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.
Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.
MIC is an acronym which stands for L-Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. These are lipotropic agents that are believed to support liver function and promote the excretion of fat. L-Methionine is an amino acid. Inositol and choline are cofactors. Together they are able to aid in the mobilization and elimination of abnormal fat deposits.
L-Methionine is an essential amino acid, which means that it is not synthesized in humans. Therefore we must consume methionine or methionine-containing proteins. Foods that contain high levels of methionine include cheese, eggs, fish, meats, spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, and some other plant seeds. However, by injecting L-Methionine into the muscle we can achieve high levels in the body’s tissues and this is believed to result in more effective mobilization and elimination of abnormal fat deposits.
Inositol, also known as myo-inositol, is best described as a carbocyclic polyol and forms the basis for many signaling and secondary messenger molecules. As such it is involved in many biological processes, including the breakdown of fats and reduction of serum cholesterol, serotonin activity modulation, gene expression, and insulin signal transduction. It is not considered a vitamin because the body is able to synthesize it.
Choline is a natural amine that is involved in the synthesis of carnitine, cell membrane phospholipids, and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is a major source for methyl groups via its metabolite trimethylglycine (betaine) that participates in the S-adenosylmethionine synthesis pathways.
