WEIGHT LOSS MEDICATIONS
The CoreLife physician can provide weight loss medications to assist in your individualized weight loss program. We will monitor each patient to make sure that the weight loss medications are being taken safely and efficiently. Weight-loss drugs can improve your health, if used in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Our prescription drug program is FDA approved and medically supervised by a licensed physician. Our prescription drugs are clinically proven to assist with your weight loss goals. We offer appetite suppressants to go along with your diet and exercise plan.
Appetite suppressants promote weight loss by "tricking" the body into believing that it is not hungry or that it is full. They decrease appetite by increasing serotonin or catecholamine - two brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite.
Appetite suppressants are very effective, but for healthy weight loss it is important to maintain your daily intake if essential vitamins and minerals. Many patients achieved excellent results when combining our weight loss medications with our structured meal replacement program which is fortified with vitamins and minerals, and formulated to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
All weight loss medications are prescribed and dispensed in-house at our CoreLife office. B12 and Lipo-B injections are administered in our office by a licensed physician or nurse.
Vitamin B-12 & Lipo-B injections are available to all our patients, whether or not they are participating in our physician supervised weight loss program.
The Vitamin B12 and Lipo-B injections are a tool to aid your dieting efforts. The injections are safe and effective but will not cause weight loss alone. It is with a healthy diet and exercise program that you will see and feel the benefits of the injection.
We offer Vitamin B12 injections that help to improve energy levels, boost metabolism and also help to increase your activity levels and burn calories.
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It regulates the formation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron, preventing anemia. It is an important component of the body system, because it is required for proper digestion, absorption and synthesis of foods, protein synthesis, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
B-12 and Weight Loss
- These shots are administered directly into the muscle, allowing for better absorption.
- B12 vitamin shots cause the metabolism to speed up, which in turn increases weight loss.
- B12 vitamin shots give a boost of energy. This generally helps people to maintain their diets, and motivates them to exercise and increase physical activity.
Lipotropic compounds are substances that help increase the breakdown of fat (lipids) during metabolism and, in this way, reduce excess fat in the liver and other tissues. In the Lipotronic injections are three amino acids that are essential for the health of your liver, known as Methionine, Inositol, and Choline.
Injections of carefully calibrated doses of natural lipotropic nutrients can improve your ability to shed fat. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver.
When combined with B-12 (as described above), you get a powerful combination to help promote weight loss.
Below are the naturally-occurring vitamins, minerals and amino acids in a Lipo-B Injection:
Vitamin B12 - regulates the formation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron, preventing anemia. It is an important component of the body system, because it is required for proper digestion, absorption and synthesis of foods, protein synthesis, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
Methionine - an antioxidant amino acid that neutralizes free radicals. It aids in breaking down fat, removing heavy metals from the body and with digestion. It is one of the important amino acids that increase energy and lean muscle mass.
Inositol - a vitamin that is vital for metabolism of fat and cholesterol. It also prevents hardening of the arteries and been shown to help in the treatment of depression and anxiety.
Choline - plays a major role in cardiovascular health. In addition to minimizing excess fat in the liver through its fat and cholesterol metabolic properties, it aids in hormone production.
