The Refinery believes a combination of balanced hormones, nutrient rich vitamin injections, and potentially prescription appetite suppressants to be the most effective manner for weight loss and maintenance. Combined with a moderate diet and some exercise we are very successful in helping people reach their target weight and body fat composition.
LipoTropic MIC B-Complex Injections
The LipoTropic B-Complex Injection is a proprietary amino acid blend included with one of the biologically active versions of vitamin B-Complex, that together enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. Lipotropic B-Complex decreases fat deposits and speeds up the metabolism and the naturally removes fat from the human body.
By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate). The three key amino acids used to make these lipotropic shots are Vitamin B-Complex, Choline, Methione, and Inositol.
HOW IT WORKS
Vitamin B-Complex - All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is "burned" to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein. This B-Complex serves as energy booster and helps with the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.
The vitamin B-complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).
M.I.C. contains: Methione, Inositol and Choline
- Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body. Patients with a sulfa allergy should not take this vitamin cocktail
- Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It also participates in action of serotonin
- Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic system
Vitamin B Complex has been used in connection with the following health conditions:
Thiamine (vitamin B1), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and other B vitamins have all been shown to play a role in wound healing. For this reason, some healthcare practitioners recommend a high-potency B vitamin supplement to promote wound healing.
People with recurrent canker sores may have a B vitamin deficiency. Supplementing with vitamins B1, B2, and B6 has been reported to provide relief.
The relationship between B vitamins and rosacea is unclear, one study found it caused rocacea-like symptoms, other preliminary reports have found benefits.
Research suggests it is possible that successful treatment of B-complex vitamin deficiencies may actually reduce alcohol cravings, because animals crave alcohol when fed a B-complex-deficient diet.
Double-blind research suggests that supplementing with vitamin B-complex multivitamin may reduce feelings of anxiety, perceived stress, and tiredness.
B-complex vitamins are needed to produce energy from carbohydrates. Exercisers may have slightly increased requirements for some of the B vitamins, including vitamins B2, B6, and B5, athletic performance can suffer if these slightly increased needs are not met.
B vitamins have been used for ADHD. High amounts of B vitamins have shown mixed results in relieving ADHD symptoms.
In one study, treatment with a hydrochloric acid supplement and a vitamin B-complex supplement helped to treat people with hives.
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity, and Vitamin B12 Deficiency
For people who have inadequate absorption of vitamin B12 due to low stomach acid, supplementing with vitamin B complex can help correct a deficiency.
In one trial postmenopausal women who combined hormone replacement therapy with B vitamins and other nutrients and dietary changes increased their bone density by a remarkable 11%.
Research has linked B vitamin deficiencies to PMS, so some women may benefit from supplementing with B-complex vitamins for symptom relief.
