Skinny shots, also known as MIC or Lipotropic injections (Methionine-Inositol-Choline)

Energy, Better Sleep, Improved Metabolism, and Enhanced Cognitive function / Mental Clarity
Helps to enhance weight loss, well-being, and cardiovascular health

Lipotropics are fat-burning amino acids, substances that are naturally produced by the body. These chemicals help to remove toxins and waste from the liver, prevent cholesterol build-up, and metabolize fats.

What are the ingredients in the basic Lipo/MIC skinny injection?

  • Methionine: A protein-based amino acid that is essential for muscle growth and energy. It also helps preserve artery function, maintain healthy nails, hair, and skin, break down fat, and remove heavy metals from the body.
  • Inositol: Used medicinally to help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the body. Inositol may also be used to improve circulation, prevent hair loss, nourish the brain, and facilitate the conversion of nutrients to energy.
  • Choline: Important for liver function, along with helping to remove toxins, and prevent fat from accumulating in the liver. With proper amounts of this nutrient in the diet each day, the chances of developing problems with the liver are reduced.
  • FAQs

What are the benefits of skinny injections?

There are many benefits that come from taking regular MIC Injections.

MIC injections may help anyone who’s hit a wall in their weight loss efforts. While skinny shots are not a replacement for a good diet and regular exercise, they may rev up your body’s metabolism to operate at peak efficiency, which will help assist you to lose weight more quickly.

Since they are entirely composed of natural elements, such as vitamins and amino acids, skinny shots can be taken on a perpetual basis, up to twice a week.

Apart from the little prick when they are administered, MIC injections are pain-free. They can help you to avoid the frustration of trying out faddy diets that may not work for you. Moreover, they can easily fit into your weekly schedule.

Besides weight loss, MIC injections may also give you more energy, and help increase your body’s overall well-being.

What is the Lipo-C Injection?

Lipo-C is a MIC injection with the addition of vitamins B1 and B2 as well as carnitine.

Carnitine is an important amino acid. It plays a significant role in boosting your body's metabolism. It does this by improving mitochondrial function and increasing cellular energy. Many athletes use it to help them burn fat, enjoy enhanced recovery and prevent muscle fatigue. Vitamin B1 is also called thiamin, and vitamin B2 is also called riboflavin. These vitamins help convert food into energy. Vitamin B1 has neurological benefits, and vitamin B2 helps maintain proper eyesight.

What are the side effects of Lipo injections?

You may start noticing the weight loss effects of lipotropic injections after 2-4 weeks, although some will lose weight faster than others and some may not see the same weight loss benefits. The most common side effect is pain or irritation at the injection site which is temporary. I use lipotropic blends and vitamin injectables that are specially formulated in an FDA-registered, PCAB sterile compounding pharmacy.

Why should I take an injection over pills or capsules?

Vitamin and amino acid injections allow your body to utilize 100% of the nutrients since they are administered directly into your bloodstream. Vitamins taken orally must be digested before benefiting your body, but a significant portion of the pills' nutrients are lost during the digestive process. People with IBS, autoimmune diseases, or leaky gut especially may not be able to absorb nutrients well in the intestines. This makes intramuscular injections a highly desirable method to get the required nutrients and antioxidants.

How do I give myself the injection?

Here is a video on how to self-administer an intramuscular injection. It’s like riding a bike. Once you get used to it it’s easy and stress-free. You can also have someone else that you know administer it for you. Youtube has a lot of instructional videos on this and I can give you guidance and instruction as well. Don’t let fear of doing an injection be the reason you don’t benefit from this valuable natural treatment option to enhance your health and well-being.

What Clients Say

“I began my Lipotropic Injections in the Fall of 2019. At the time I had chronic fatigue, poor sleep quality, brain fog, and daily cravings for foods I should not eat. At that time I had felt poorly for about eight months due to a bad case of mono. After my first week of Lipotropic injections, I began to have a better quality of sleep. I was sleeping through the night and waking up feeling refreshed for the first time in years. After my second week of Lipotropic Injections, I noticed fewer cravings for snack foods and could stay on track with healthy eating habits. At week 4 I really started to feel the long-term effects. I had energy, could concentrate for longer periods throughout the day and was feeling like myself again. I have continued with weekly injections, and continue to feel the benefits. I have lost a total of 7 pounds of fat and am continuing to become the healthiest version of myself.”


“I believe Lipotropics worked wonders for me and continues to do so. I was previously diagnosed with cancer. Everyone told me that the radiation treatments would exhaust me but, just before my treatments started, I began taking Lipotropics weekly. I breezed through radiation without skipping a beat! I know by the end of the day when I have had my shots because of my increased energy level. I think Lipotropics are amazing!” -Linda

“Lipotropic injections have been instrumental in my weight loss journey. As a woman in my 50’s, losing weight became almost impossible. I also have hypothyroidism and with that and my hormone levels, my metabolism was at an all-time low. Diet and exercise alone was not going to cut it. I tried everything and let’s just say my body needed a jump start, and the lipotropic injections did just that! It helped curb my appetite, gave me energy, and helped to improve my sleep. I have now lost 40 pounds and went down from a size 18 to a size 12! My body is now working as it should! I look forward to my weekly injections, knowing they will help me continue to reach my goal.”


“After trying them, I realized I had a few of the best night’s sleep I had had in a long time. And then I was losing weight…hmm…even sometimes a little more than I probably deserved to? So, I kept them up. Now I am trying on my summer clothes for an upcoming trip, and I am noticing that I’m not seeing that annoying belly fat over my waistband – I can’t say that everything is all because of the injections, but I’m not taking any chances!”


“About 3 weeks into taking them I noticed my hair looked better, my nails a lot stronger and I had a lot more energy. I am sleeping better. For me, it’s been a significant change.”
