These injections, like Vitamin B12, can help to improve energy and increase weight loss. The turbotrim formula contains several ingredients that help to promote energy and weight loss. These components are listed below, along with a brief description as how each component may benefit weight loss and energy. Again, this is not a “Miracle” weight loss supplement. You cannot expect to have the injection and lose weight without an appropriate diet and exercise program. However, these ingredients may make it easier to burn more calories due to their metabolism boost, as well as the increase in energy that you make feel.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C):Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring antioxidant that plays a role in many body functions including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, immune system health, wound healing and maintenance of bone and cartilage health. This nutrient has been found to be beneficial for many conditions including stress, colds and skin aging (less wrinkles???). In terms of weight loss benefits, there has been some correlations found. Although vitamin C doesn’t necessarily cause weight loss, but it does seem to be related to body weight. According to the review published in 2005 in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition,” higher vitamin C intakes are associated with lower body-mass indexes. The authors of this review also point out that getting sufficient amounts of vitamin C increases body fat oxidation during moderate-intensity exercise. Therefore, vitamin C deficiency may hinder weight gain and promote body fat loss.
Vitamin B complex:Well-known for acting as a catalyst for energy metabolism in your body. Without it, your body cannot efficiently break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats for energy. They also help support the immune system, skin and muscle health and improve nerve function. Vitamin B complex helps unlock energy stored in carbohydrates, fats and proteins to maintain or increase energy levels during exercise. Taking vitamin B Complex alone will not likely help you lose weight. However, it can enhance your ability to exercise and burn calories through increased energy. It is a “potentiater” for fat loss.
Methionine:An essential amino acid, which means the body cannot make this nutrient (must be obtained by supplements, injection or from the diet). It works as a lipotropic agent which assists in breakdown of fats in the liver. It can also help to lower cholesterol. Methionine helps to detoxify amines, which are the by-products of protein metabolism. It also acts as a catalyst for Choline and Inositol, opening up their ability to function within the body. In addition to benefits in fat breakdown, it can help improve fatigue.
Inositol:Like Methionine, the body is unable to make this nutrient on its own. It serves a role in the health of nerve and muscle health in the body. It aids in the metabolism of fats and may help to reduce cholesterol. Deficiency of inositol can lead to hair loss. There have been studies that show that it is better utilized when given in an injection, than trying to obtain it through the diet.
Choline:Serves several functions in the body in addition to helping metabolize fat. Deficiency of Choline can lead to Cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver as well as hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). Choline helps detoxify amines that are the by-products of protein metabolism.
L-Carnetine:A naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell. Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body's burning of triglycerides as fuel. Studies have showed that L-Carnitine can decrease fat mass, preserve muscle during exercise and reduce muscle fatigue. When taken orally, L-Carnitine requires a high dose to promote fat tissue breakdown, since only a small fraction is absorbed by the gut. It is almost absorbed at 100% through intramuscular injection.
Leucine:Leucine is an essential branched chain amino acid. This is one of the only amino acids burned by muscles as fuel for energy. Therefore, its levels decrease after exercise. Leucine is needed to promote protein synthesis needed to build muscle tissue. Leucine is probably the most important amino acid to build muscle. Numerous studies have shown that leucine helps to spare muscle tissue loss during dieting and weight loss. In two separate studies, groups with high leucine diets/supplementation had greater weight loss, greater fat loss and better preservation of lean body mass. High leucine levels also resulted in better glucose control.
