Wonder how your favorite movie stars seem to have endless energy, never age, and are in great physical shape?

What’s their secret? They have many types of anti-aging and performance-enhancing therapies available to them, some health-conscious celebrities choose B12 shots (cobalamin) when they want to optimize their metabolism and increase energy.The good news is that you don’t have to be a celebrity to take advantage of the benefits of B12 shots. Dr. Fortino and his team at his Philadelphia and South Jersey weight loss clinics have helped thousands of patients use B12 injections to help combat fatigue and to improve their over all weight loss efforts.

Whether you’re looking for ways to jump-start weight loss or complement your wellness regimen, Dr. Fortino and his staff will develop a personalized regimen of B12 injections to help you achieve the results you are expecting. You want to know the benefits of B12 shots?

Why does your body need B12?

Vitamin B12 contributes to the health of your body’s nerves, blood cells, and DNA. Having adequate B12 levels protects you from a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that can cause fatigue and brain fog. Since the mid-1950s, scientists have also been aware of the ability of B12 to process and burn fat. At appropriate levels, these lipotropic properties of vitamin B12 help your body metabolize fat more effectively and efficiently.

Unfortunately, your body can’t produce its own B12 to take advantage of all these benefits, so you have to consume it through food or supplements. Because B12 is naturally present only in meat and other animal products, vegans and vegetarians may not get enough B12 from their diet. Women and men with absorption disorders also can’t properly absorb and process it.

How do B12 injections work at your weight loss clinic?

When you rely on oral B12 supplements to improve your B12 levels, you may not get the full benefit of your dosage because the nutrients have to get through your digestive system before they enter your bloodstream. Receiving B12 injections gives you the benefit of the full dose of nutrients because it’s delivered right into your bloodstream. This lets you utilize 100% of the nutrient immediately for faster and more complete results.

The benefits of your B12 injection may include:

  • Immediate improved energy
  • Improved metabolism
  • Better mood and cognition
  • Boosted long-term energy

Dr.Fortino, Philadelphia Premier Diet Doctor will determine your B12 needs when planning your personalized treatment schedule. Most of Dr. Fortino’s patients get B12 shots twice each week for a period of six to twelve weeks depending on their personal needs.

B12 plus “fat-burning shots”

While twice-weekly B12 injections alone can improve and increase your energy levels and fat-burning abilities, Dr. Fortino’s patients typically receive B12 injections together with MIC lipotropic injections weekly at his Philadelphia and New Jersey diet clinics.
These “fat-burning shots” are often used by diet doctors as part of a medically supervised weight-loss program that includes proper hydration, a healthy diet, and routine exercise.
While vitamin B12 injections help your body metabolize fat more effectively and promote its removal,MIC lipotropic injections provide a combination of B12 and other nutrients to jump-start weight loss and help keep you motivated.
