Many people think that the lipotropic shots are all the same, however, while the name Lipotropic is widely used, the actual composition is not the same. Our custom formula was selected by Dr. Bretal and it includes the most effective combination of ingredients for energy boosts and weight loss at exactly the right ratio for maximum results.

No doubt that the star of the show is the Vitamin B12, or is it?

Let’s talk about all the other ingredients in our injection:


L-Carnitine enhances fat burning and leads to faster, more effective muscle building! The primary function of L-carnitine in the body is to regulate fat oxidation. It also reduces fatigue and increases energy, enhances athletic performance and post-workout recovery, improves lean muscle strength, and lean muscle building. A powerful antioxidant can slow or reverse some of the negative effects of aging.


Methionine is an amino acid that acts as a lipotropic (fat-loving) agent to speed up the removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in problem areas. It helps detoxify the body of heavy metals and is considered to be an incredible antioxidant. Additionally, methionine compliments weight loss because it helps prevent and relieve fatigue.


Inositol is a B -Vitamin. It is a mild lipotropic agent, helping with weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down fats in the body. Inositol is vital for good health, both mental and physical. It is reported to offer a calming effect, improve the quality of sleep, and treat depression. This important B vitamin may also reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.


Choline is also a part of the vitamin B family. It assists our bodies to efficiently burn fat while supporting and promoting weight loss. Choline supports the health of the liver, improving its ability to process and excrete chemical byproducts within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular, and hepatic system. The combination of these components will also improve liver function, and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver.

VItamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a vital nutrient that is critical for maintaining normal functioning nerve cells and aids in the production of DNA, and RNA, the building blocks for the genetic makeup of the body.

Vitamin B12 is used in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, and is also required for fatty acid synthesis.
