In addition to appetite suppressant medication and nutritional counseling, Dr. Summers recommends that his patients participate in the weight loss injections to help maximize weight loss efforts. These injections are administered directly into the hip muscle for increased absorption. The 3 types of weight loss injections available are:
1. Lipovite: This injection is a mixture of 13 different B vitamins, lipotropic fat burners and various supplements which boost energy, increase metabolism and help burn fat. Due to its color, it is also known as the "orange" injection to many of our patients.
2. MIC w/B12: This injection is a mixture of 3 lipotropic fat burners (Methionine, Inositol and Choline), along with B-12. Due to its color, it is also known as the "pink" injection to many of our patients.
3. Vitamin B12 Injections - This injection contains only Vitamin B12, which is known as the "energy vitamin" because it is used in the metabolism of every cell in the body. It provides an energy boost and is commonly used to treat fatigue. Due to its color, it is also known as the "red" shot to many of our patients.
