You’ve heard a vague whisper about MIC B12 shots and want some FAQs. We’ll provide them all here. But let’s backtrack a moment – to you.

Are you worn out from all that working out but still not meeting your weight-loss goals? What could be more frustrating than following all the weight-loss advice and diets and exercise programs and not reaping the rewards? Are you losing hope and about to drown your frustration in a gallon of chocolate ice cream?

Put the spoon down! Before you dig into that creamy deliciousness that will undo all of your hard work, take a moment to consider another option.

Our guess is that you haven’t tried this one. Not a lot of people are talking about it yet – a mere whisper from time to time – even though it’s a safe and effective way to support your weight-loss efforts. It’s Methionine Inositol Choline B12 (MIC B12) injections.

MIC B12 shots are a non-invasive medical treatment that can help your body burn fat more efficiently.

How Can a B12 Shot Make Me Lose Weight?

There are so many new types of shots and injections available that it’s easy to get confused. An MIC B12 shot is not the same as your straight-up B12 shot. A B12 shot is more like a shot of a single alcoholic beverage, whereas an MIC B12 shot is a mixed drink or cocktail made up of various types of alcohol, sodas, and juices.

Each item in the cocktail has its own job and adds its own flair. The B12 in this particular cocktail adds an energy boost that can help you stay motivated, keep your mood up, and keep getting you to the gym. The other components of the MIC B12 shot work in combination to support other components of weight loss.

How Do MIC Injections Work?

To answer that question, we’ll look at what is in a MIC B12 shot besides B12. A Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) shot consists of a formula of lipotropics. Lipotropics are compounds that help break down fat. The primary compounds in the formula are methionine, inositol, and choline:

  • Methionine is an essential amino acid
  • Inositol supports proper cell formation
  • Choline is a water-soluble nutrient that supports liver function

Together they metabolize fat cells and assist in the elimination of stored fat deposits in the liver and body, and may encourage fat reduction. MIC B12 shots are known to not only reduce fat, but also possibly increase metabolism.

Is a MIC B12 Injection Going to Hurt?

Think of this weightless warrior as you would any other shot – a minor inconvenience and discomfort that passes quickly. During the treatment, a medical professional will inject the MIC B12 shot directly into a muscle in the buttocks, thigh, hip, or upper arm. A topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the injection if you need it.

The appointment will take less than half an hour, and you should be able to resume normal activities immediately after the injection.

Is This a One-and-Done Treatment?

No. Multiple injections will be required to achieve optimal results. How many you need will depend on several factors, including your age, activity level, physical health, frequency of injections, and how well your body responds to the treatment. Your provider can give you a better idea of what to expect, but injections are typically given bi-weekly for about three months.

You will also need to keep putting in the effort to get as many ounces of benefit from this treatment as you can. So remember to:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Practice healthy lifestyle habits
  • Explore alternatives to problematic medications

How Soon Will I See Results from MIC B12 treatments?

The first thing that will happen is that you’ll feel an immediate energy boost from the B12. This will continue for the first few days following your first appointment. You may also start to feel increased hunger and less fatigue. Typically it takes about 30 days after your first treatment to start noticing weight-loss results. However, you may see results sooner when you maintain proper diet and exercise.

Is MIC B12 Treatment Safe?

This treatment is derived from natural sources, which lowers the risk of side effects. Typically it is safe for all patients and has no risk of being toxic. Your body will break down B12 if it has no use for it, because it’s water-soluble. Lipotropic amino acids are also eliminated naturally.

Some patients have experienced mild swelling and redness at the injection site, upset stomach, or lightheadedness. As always, if you have allergies, advise your medical professional before receiving treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for MIC B12 Treatment?

Any adult who would like to increase their metabolism and burn fat more quickly is a good candidate for MIC B12 treatment. Ideal candidates are those who are willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and diet.

MIC B12 Injections Review

MIC B12 injections are a safe medical treatment that, when injected regularly, may enhance the body’s fat-burning capacity. An energy boost is immediate, but weight-loss results take a short period of time to become visible. MIC B12 shots are not magic. If you want optimal results, it’s essential to continue exercising, following a healthy diet, and making good lifestyle choices. MIC B12 injections do not address serious weight issues or obesity. They are one component of a sustainable weight management program.

Individual results will vary.
