What are Lipotropic Injections

Lipotropic injections include a solution of nutrients that accelerate the burning of fat in the body. Some of these nutrients include vitamin B12, amino-acids, inositol, methionine and choline, among others. These substances play an intricate part in the consumption of energy and the disposal of toxins and fat from the body.

Most medical practices that recommend the use of these shots also recommend that the patient incorporates a daily fitness plan and also the implementation of a diet with caloric intake restrictions.

The etymology of the word “lipotropic” comes from the Greek word lipos – meaning “fat”. For this reason, sometimes patients relate the shots to the plastic surgery procedure known as liposuction. However, both terms are completely unrelated. Liposuction is a procedure that requires weeks of recovery and ultimately, fails to deliver real fat loss. Most patients generally gain everything back because unlike lipotropin injections, the body is not being trained in a natural way to get rid of the fat.

The lack of the proper nutrients provided by lipotropic injections are the cause behind the build up of bile and fat in the liver. This problem can also be the root behind serious diseases like cirrhosis and liver failure. Additionally, it is the starting point behind metabolic issues by preventing the body from the ability to discard fat.

What is in Lipotropic Ingredients

  • Amino Acids
    • Glutamine, L-Arginine and l-Carnitine

  • B Vitamin Complex
    • Helps you feel Energetic

  • Choline
    • Its function is to help with detoxing the liver

  • Inositol
    • Helps in the break-down of fat

  • Methionine
    • Helps in defending the body against toxic substances

  • Vitamin B12
    • Essential for a plethora of biological functions including fat metabolism and a healthy nervous system. 

One of the advantages of using the Lipotropic injections comes from the fact that the solution enters the body without the possibility of being diluted or becoming ineffectively absorbed by the digestive system. Studies have shown that the average weight loss is between 2 to 4 pounds per week. Of course, the results are different according to individual circumstances. Patients with a high level of motivation and discipline about their weight loss journey are reported to lose up to five pounds per week.

Benefits of Lipotropic Injections

Apart from being completely natural fat-burning aids, the various lipotropic nutrients have a range of additional health benefits including:

Liz started doing personal blood draws after her son, Dashiell, was born with Zellwegers disease. His diagnosis required numerous blood draws and drug levels throughout his life. After sitting through long wait times at the labs followed by watching many different phlebotomists, many new to the job, struggle to find his veins, often poking him multiple times, as a seasoned phlebotomist, Liz decided to draw his blood at home and hand deliver it to the lab myself. Soon after she began doing personal touch blood draws so she can now offer that same personalized service to you.

Liz graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Biology in 1994. She moved to Santa Barbara and earned her phlebotomy certificate in 1995. Liz began working at St. Francis Medical Center in the Physical Therapy Department and quickly transferred to the Laboratory. Perfecting her venipuncture techniques on all floors of the hospital, including post-operative patients, pregnant women going into labor, sick or premature babies, and emergency room patrons, she then improved her patient care skills working for internal medicine doctors, one of whom was the Medical Director of Hospice and won Doctor of the Year. In 1999, Liz started working with a group of local retinal surgeons. Her primary job consisted of injecting dye into arm veins and photographing its flow through the patients retinal vessels. When patients are worried about their diagnosis or apprehensive about the procedure because of difficult veins, her quick, almost pain free needle stick and kind but professional bed side manner would put them at ease.

The various settings and patients Liz has encountered over the years have enabled her to become very skilled at finding the smallest and most fragile of vessels. Her specialities include infants and the elderly, diabetics of all ages, patients with rolling veins, on blood thinners or chemotherapy. She lives in downtown Santa Barbara, travels from Goleta to Carpintera and brings all the necessary supplies directly to you. All she needs from you is a lab request and your home or office becomes an instant draw station. Appointment times are very flexible, and she is friendly, reliable and punctual. Be kind to your arm and treat yourself to the luxury blood draw you deserve!!!


Mike brings more than just a medical perspective to his clients; at the age of 14, he began an athletic career as a pole-vaulter that would end up taking him on an incredible journey over the next 13 years of his life. Throughout his athletic journey Mike was constantly working to find the ideal balance of fitness and proper nutrition in order to maximize his performances. Combined with his medical knowledge the years of athletic experience provide a unique and successful combination that serve to benefit his staff and clients.

“After I shifted the focus of my practice from Sports Medicine into Nuclear Medicine specifically Interventional Endocrinology. I found myself questioning our western medical paradigm…Here I was performing thyroid cancer and Hyperthyroidism treatments with harmful radical thyroid radioactive ablations which really made me take a hard look in the mirror and become more of a researcher to find safer and more effective options to better treat my clients. During my research I realized that there were very few, if any, medically directed programs focused towards achieving a “Healthier Lifestyle” rather than typical “Diet” fads.” A few years later after training and working with some of the worlds foremost Bio-identical Hormone Replacement specialists I became Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Sort of just found my passion and the answers I had been looking for with this new specialty finally after years of treating people with the Band-Aid “fix it when its broken” mentality instead of at the root cause.”

Mike has spent the last 10 years in Anti-Aging, Functional and Regenerative Medicine. He has trained over 120 physicians in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and consulting for their practices. Today his vision is a reality, and clients from all of the world come to benefit from the successful programs that have been established at Age Management Institute Santa Barbara. He firmly believes in educating the patient about the importance of good nutrition, hormone balance, stress management, and regular exercise is the key to aging well and having a high quality of life well into your golden years.
