Lipotropic Injections

Lipotropic injections are weight loss injections that we offer at The Youth Fountain in Freehold, NJ that can accelerate your metabolism, help your body burn fat, increase energy, and improve your body composition.

What Are Lipotropic Injections?

Lipotropic injections are weight loss injections that contain a combination of ingredients, including B vitamins, methionine, inositol, and choline, that work together to assist the body in burning fat so you can lose weight and improve your body composition. These injections can be administered via oral drops or injections into subcutaneous tissue just below the skin’s surface with a tiny, thin needle, the latter being the method preferred by Dr. Shakov.

These injections aren’t a permanent solution, but they complement a weight management plan, offer other health benefits, and accelerate weight loss without compromising your health and wellness.

What Are the Benefits of Weight Loss Injections?

These injections can promote weight loss and help patients reach their health, wellness, and body composition goals quickly and safely. Some of the primary treatment benefits of lipotropics include the following:

  • Lower body weight
  • Increased energy levels
  • Healthy liver detoxification
  • Accelerated metabolic rate
  • Customizable treatment plans
  • Safe, short-term solution for weight management
  • Improved body composition

How Do They Promote Weight Loss?

Lipotropic injections contain ingredients that work together to increase metabolic rate, assist the body in burning fat, and increase energy. All these aspects will help you lose weight and complement your weight management plan. Eating a low-calorie diet and getting enough daily exercise can make you feel depleted and unmotivated, not to mention constantly hungry.

When you add lipotropic injections to your weight management plan, the effects of increased energy levels and a faster metabolic rate will help you reach your goals faster while keeping you energized so that you can stick to your diet, exercise daily, and still have energy to spare. These injections also prevent the buildup of excess fat in the liver, which can make a significant difference in total stored fat in the long term.

What Are the Primary Ingredients in Lipotropics?

Lipotropics contain powerful ingredients that can naturally promote improved fat metabolism and a faster metabolic rate. Our injections contain B vitamins, choline, methionine, inositol, and L-carnitine.


Methionine is an essential amino acid that prevents the buildup of excess fat within the arteries and breaks down fatty deposits. It detoxifies the liver and can also treat and prevent fatigue.


Inositol is a carbohydrate that converts dietary fat into useful energy and helps establish healthy cellular membranes. It interacts with serotonin, a neurotransmitter that also controls mood and appetite.


Choline is an essential nutrient the body requires to metabolize and transport fat and cholesterol. It’s a critical component of the normal cellular membrane, structure, function, and memory, and it promotes a healthy nervous system.

Vitamin B1

Also known as thiamine, vitamin B1 is a protein, carbohydrate, and fat metabolism catalyst.

Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, works in the body to help with fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism processes.

Vitamin B3

Also known as niacin, vitamin B3 helps break down nutrients so they can be released into the body as energy. Vitamin B3 is also known for its ability to help reduce cholesterol levels and promote optimal health.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an important nutrient that helps form red blood cells and produce energy.


L-carnitine is a substance that helps the body transform fat into energy.

What Is the Best Method for Administering These Ingredients?

Lipotropics are available in both oral and injectable forms, but Dr. Shakov prefers the injectable route over the oral because it’s easier for your body to absorb and use. Injections are more efficiently absorbed than oral lipotropics because oral lipotropics require that the digestive system break them down: a process that takes time and can result in many of the compounds being removed as waste.

An oral lipotropic often contains fillers, which injectable lipotropics do not. Injections are administered directly into your system, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and allowing the body to use all the compounds immediately to promote your weight management goals.

The Benefits of Better Absorption

Patients who take lipotropic injections, as opposed to oral supplements, require less frequent doses. Oral lipotropics often need to be taken multiple times a day, but because lipotropic injections are more concentrated, patients only need one injection per week to achieve their goals.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Adding lipotropic injections to your health and wellness regimen won’t help your body burn fat and lose weight on its own; the injections must be combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine. Burning calories through exercise and eating low-calorie foods, combined with these injections, will promote steady weight loss.

These injections are not a free pass to an unhealthy lifestyle but instead are designed to supplement and support your weight management efforts and increase your metabolic rate. Your results rely in part on the work that you put in, including eating a consistently healthy diet and getting enough exercise to create a caloric deficit.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Patients beginning a weight management plan that includes dietary changes, increased exercise, and other treatment options make good candidates for lipotropic injections.

Patients should be in good health and understand that these injections will only complement a weight management plan and won’t deliver results without work. An initial consultation is the best way to learn more about these weight loss injections, how they work, and whether they’re right for you.

Increase Your Energy, Boost Your Metabolism, and Lose Weight

If you’ve been trying to lose weight on your own but haven’t achieved your goals as quickly as you’d like, these injections can make all the difference in your results and total body weight. Whether you’ve been trying to lose weight for weeks, months, or years, we can give you more details about all the benefits of these injections and confirm whether you’re a treatment candidate at your initial consultation.
