We offer Lipo Mino mix which combines inositol 25mg, choline 25mg, cyano B12 1mg, methionine 12.4mg, thiamine B1 50mg, riboflavin B2 5mg, pyridoxine B6 2mg, and L-Carnitine 125mg.
Why do we offer it? Because studies have shown that it works to help reduce weight and cause a faster weight loss especially when combined with exercise and diet. Many places offer vitamin B12 injections, but unfortunately by itself, it does not usually cause weight loss. The other supplements in our Lipo Mino mix are lipotropics which mean they help burn fat. Studies have shown an inverse relationship with B12 and obesity though and it's included in our mix. B12 also helps to improve energy and metabolize fat.
How do we know it works? There are many published medical studies showing this to be true. I've included some articles that can be found easily on google, but I've tried to sum them up for review here. I've listed them based on the supplement being tested. There are more, but for sake of time in a review, I've listed what I felt was most important.
Inositol in association with diet seems to accelerate the weight loss and the fat mass reduction with a slight increase of percent lean mass, and this treatment contributes significantly in restoring the regularity of the menstrual cycle.
The results revealed significant differences between pre- and post-competition measurements of leptin, free plasma choline, urine choline and urine malondialdehyde levels; body mass was also reduced in the post-competition measurements. In conclusion, choline supplementation could rapidly reduce body mass without any side effects on biochemical levels or static strength.
Has been shown to reduce fat and increase the body's metabolism. Because of its ability to remove and transport fat out of your body, it is essential for weight loss. Methionine also increases the synthesis of muscle protein.
Methionine is also the source of sulfur that is required for the synthesis of other substances that are important for the efficient production of energy in the body such as choline, creatine and carnitine.
Plays a key role in energy metabolism. It’s involved in glucose, protein, and lipid metabolism. It's also depleted by vigorous exercise. Studies have shown up to 30% of obese patients are deficient in thiamine supporting this link.
There is no clinical evidence to suggest riboflavin has any particular role in weight gain or loss, so among the vitamins included in a B complex supplement it is largely inconsequential where weight is concerned. It is, however, important in the metabolism of fats, so should still be part of your diet.
Similar to B12, B6 has not been shown to cause weight loss by itself. It is very vital though in the function of the other supplements in our Lipo Mino mix. It can contribute to an optimized metabolism that yields plenty of energy by burning fat as a fuel source. It can also reduce symptoms of tiredness and fatigue, which are both common in those following a calorically restricted eating plan, especially whilst maintaining an active lifestyle.
This study provides a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, which have examined the effect of the carnitine on adult weight loss. Relevant studies were identified by systematic search of PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and reference lists of relevant marker studies. Nine studies (total n = 911) of adequate methodological quality were included in the review. Trials with mean difference (MD) of 95% confidence interval (CI) were pooled using random effect model. Results from meta-analysis of eligible trials revealed that subjects who received carnitine lost significantly more weight (MD: −1.33 kg; 95% CI: −2.09 to −0.57) and showed a decrease in body mass index (MD: −0.47 kg m−2; 95% CI: −0.88 to −0.05) compared with the control group. The results of meta-regression analysis of duration of consumption revealed that the magnitude of weight loss resulted by carnitine supplementation significantly decreased over time (p = 0.002). We conclude that receiving carnitine resulted in weight loss.
