Weight Loss

Weight loss can be very frustrating and difficult. A lot of fad diets and pills promise a lot but can end up causing disappointing results.  The truth is that the most effective way to help with weight loss is through diet and exercise. But, if you are like most people, diet and exercise is not enough to reach your goals. Over time your metabolism and energy decreases making it harder to burn off fat. Even with the strictest diet and intents regular workouts it can be difficult to lose weight.

Fortunately, at North Shore IV Center we offer an injection of fat metabolizing vitamins and amino acids, with diet and exercise can help you reach your weight loss goals. This formula consists of Methionine, Inositol, and Choline (MIC). These nutrients together can help stimulate and support metabolism and help liberate fat.

Methionine is an essential amino acid which can help break down fat in the liver, and helps prevent and relieve fatigue.1, 2, 3, 4 Inositol is considered a B vitamin the helps with metabolism of fat and supports the action of hormones and neurotransmitters known to help with mood and appetite.5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Choline is another amino acid that is required for the transport of fats and cholesterol into cells to be metabolized.10, 11, 12, 13 This  is also usually given with some B vitamins specifically B12. Vitamin B 12 may work synergistically with this formula to help improve health and increase energy.

North Shore IV Center we will make an individualized weight loss plan that encompasses a whole body approach. In addition to the weight loss MIC shoot, you will receive a specific diet plan customized to you and your needs, and an exercise plan that fits your ability and life style.
