The Fatburner Shot: A new way to support the body in burning fat, reducing cholesterol and improving liver detox

January 17th, 2013

Are you interested in lowering your cholesterol and burning fat?  Would you like more energy?  Do you want to boost immune function and aid the liver in its crucial detoxification processes?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is a highly effective Nutritional Injection that we offer to provide these benefits.  We call this customized formula, the Fatburner shot.  It’s a particular combination of lipotropic substances known as methionine, inositol and choline.  Lipotropic literally translates into “fat-loving”.  Aside from helping the body burn fat for weight loss, while helping to suppress hunger, this formula can also prevent accumulation of fats in the liver, a condition known as fatty liver.  Another important benefit is the increase in immune activity of the thymus gland, which helps the body attack, invading viruses and microbes.

Methionine is an essential amino acid, which supports normal metabolism and growth.  It provides the body with sulfur, which is a key component for making and using a number of antioxidant nutrients.  Methionine also functions as a methyl donor, which is crucial to countless biochemical pathways in the body.  Research has been shown methyl donors are crucial to methylation, which are chemical reactions that may decrease the aging process and help with healthy brain chemistry.  Doctors use methionine with excellent results as part of a treatment for depression, inflammation, liver diseases and estrogen dominance.

Choline, a nutrient similar to the B-Vitamins, works in concert with folate and methionine.  It plays a role in the structural integrity of cell membranes, cell-to-cell communication, as well as fat transport and metabolism.  On a cellular level, choline helps protect the liver from accumulating fat and can also help to lower cholesterol.  Choline serves as a precursor to acetylcholine, which is an important neurotransmitter involved in muscle control and memory.  Like methionine, choline participates in methylation reactions, which lower homocysteine levels, thereby decreasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Inositol, is a vitamin-like substance that is also similar to the B-Vitamins.  It benefits many conditions including: polycystic ovarian syndrome, diabetic nerve pain, high cholesterol, panic disorder, cancer, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, hair loss and psoriasis.  This nutrient is an important source of glucoronic acid, which is essential to liver detoxification.

Our patients love the boost in energy they receive from this shot. They often notice overall improvements in well-being and mood, better ability to tolerate stress and enhanced quality of sleep.  Patients also use this shot to assist with weight loss as part of a healthy lifestyle weight loss plan.

At Vitalia, Dr. Andrea Minesaki adds B-vitamins to the fat burner shot for added energy, enhanced metabolism and adrenal support.  The shot is $30-35 and is recommended 1-2 times per week for 4-6 weeks.  A small needle is used to administer the shot in the deltoid or gluteal muscles and is tolerated very well.  Schedule an appointment to talk with Dr. Minesaki and determine what’s best for your individual needs.
