Lipotropic Shot

Lipotropics are the necessary compounds that enhance the liver’s ability to function properly and break down fat. Lipotropics will boost your body’s energy levels and metabolism so you are able to work out longer and harder. The injections help the body target fats, and convert them to energy, especially in the liver. 

Lipotropic Shot Q&A

Lipotropic injections are supplement injections used for weight loss.  When you have been working hard to lose weight, sticking to your weight loss program, and still struggling with stubborn pockets of fat, lipotropic shots may give you that extra help you need to get rid of them. If you want something that is nominally invasive and has no need for recovery time, unlike liposuction, then lipotropic shots may be right for you.

What are lipotropic injections?

Lipotropic shots are supplements that are used for weight loss. They are intended to complement other weight loss tools and lifestyle changes. Lipotropic shots often contain vitamin B12, which is quite safe. These shots, when used alone and not with a weight loss plan are not recommended. 

Lipotropic injections usually consist of various vitamins, nutrients, and ingredients used to aid in weight loss. The most common ingredients include:

  • Vitamin B6

  • Vitamin B6 complex

  • Vitamin B12

  • Branched Chain Amino Acids

  • L-carnitine

  • MIC (methionine, inositol, and choline)


Lipotropic shots are not always the best option for everyone and you should talk with a professional before getting them. Just Lose Weight MD has knowledgeable professionals who can help you understand if they will work for you. These need to be prescribed before they can be used. Lipotropics are often good for people who are overweight or obese and are struggling to get their metabolism kick-started. Slowed metabolism can be a symptom of fat in the liver. 

Lipotropic shots will work best when the person taking them is on a weight loss plan, someone who is making the diet and lifestyle changes to succeed. These shots can also be used to maintain a healthy weight once you have achieved it. 

What are the benefits of lipotropic injections?

There are also other benefits to lipotropic shots which include:

  • Lowered cholesterol

  • Boosted immune system

  • Improved concentration

  • Stronger nails and shinier hair

  • Improved mental clarity

  • Improved mood

  • Improved sleep

How often do you get Lipotropic shots?

The frequency of injections will depend on your specific situation and goals. Lipotropic shots are not a “one and done” program. You will need to get injections regularly. If you are getting them for weight loss, it is recommended that you get them once or twice per week. For weight maintenance, you may only need to get lipotropic shots every other week or every three weeks. This can be determined by your weight-loss professional. If you need the shots because of a deficiency, then you will likely need them twice a week. 

Lipotropic shots are given either intramuscularly or subcutaneously. They are usually injected into the upper thigh but can be injected into the upper arm, hip, or buttocks. The dosage will depend on several factors, including what ingredients are in the shot, your current health, and your medical history.
