How do Skinny Shots work?


Skinny Shots are lipotropic injections, which means they act on fat metabolism by removing or decreasing fat deposits from the liver. These injections have a combination of lipotropic agents, vitamins and amino acids. Skinny Shots typically include a “MIC Complex” which is the combination of Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. This is what those things do:

  • L-Methionine is an anti-inflammatory amino acid that helps the body process fat and eliminate toxins.
  • Inositol helps the liver break down fats, and works with choline to aid in the metabolism of fat.
  • Choline helps regulate the kidneys, liver and gallbladder and is essential for fat metabolism. Choline also helps with detox.
  • Basically, the MIC complex helps to move fat out of the liver. An interesting side effect of the combination of the MIC complex components is improved mental function.

Here’s what makes our Skinny Shots at Cheyenne Mountain Gynecology better than the rest… ours go the extra mile because they contain a MIC complex and other good stuff including:

  • L-Carnitine which transports fatty acids and helps your body use fat as energy. It’s vital to optimizing performance because it prevents the buildup of lactic acid, that pesky thing that causes fatigue and muscle cramping during workouts (Hammer Nutrition Direct, 2019). If you want to use fat as fuel in the most efficient way, you need L-Carnitine in your life.
  • B1 which helps your body use carbs as energy and helps with glucose metabolism
  • B5 or pantothenic acid which is one of the most important vitamins because it aids in red blood cell production and it also helps convert the food you eat into energy (Morris & Nicholls, 2017). Red Blood cells carry oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from your body.

How Skinny Shots Work

The amino acids that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. These injections boost the body’s metabolic power by providing a highly effective temporary increase of normal metabolic functions. As soon as the effect of these substances wears off, the body begins to gradually return to its normal metabolic rate. When administered in combination with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, our lipotropic formulas can help your body to rid itself of fat, while simultaneously increasing your energy levels both via the fat released energy and the energy promoting properties of vitamin B-12.
