What's In The Shots?

NAD+

NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme found in all living cells that is essential in key physiological processes in our bodies. As we get older, however, NAD+ production slows down, leading to mental and physical fatigue. One of the ways to supplement declining NAD+ is through NAD+ Therapy. NAD+ Injections help to ensure that it’s absorbed by the bloodstream, rather than being broken down in the digestive system, thereby delivering maximum benefits to your body.There are a number of other reasons nutrition tends to suffer during winter. We’re often dehydrated, and dehydration cues can be mistaken for hunger. Indeed, we sweat just as much during winter as we do during summer, thanks to dry indoor heating and extra layers of clothing. Seasonal doldrums can also encourage overconsumption of foods that stimulate the brain’s pleasure center. To combat evolution, dehydration, and the winter blues, make sure to eat balanced meals full of seasonal ingredients. A good rule of thumb is to try to incorporate every color of the rainbow – bright orange carrots and squashes, minty green cabbage and fennel, blood-red beets, and winter-white

1. Supplements Addiction Recovery

Recovery from addiction is a physically and psychologically brutal process, partly because drug and alcohol abuse has been shown to deplete NAD+ levels. Inadequate amounts of NAD+ make it harder to convert energy broken down from food. There has even been speculation that people who naturally produce less NAD+ may be more likely to develop substance abuse disorders.Although NAD+ Therapy is by no means a cure for addiction, it can assist with a number of the processes involved in addiction recovery. It can help flush remaining drugs from the system, mitigate the painful effects of withdrawals, and reduce cravings for alcohol and drugs. NAD+ Therapy can even help the body produce more energy naturally, but without the negative side effects of substances like caffeine or sugar.If you’re interested in exploring NAD+ Therapy as part of a holistic addiction recovery program, talk with your doctor. It can be a useful addition to a complete program of recovery.

2. Improves Cognitive Function

As we get older, our cognitive function declines. Memory loss, brain fog, and difficulty concentrating are all symptoms of age-related cognitive degeneration. Insufficient levels of NAD+ can exacerbate these issues, since your body relies on mitochondria and NAD+ to convert glucose into metabolic energy, thus supplying energy to your brain cells. When you don’t have enough NAD+, your brain is unable to convert sufficient amounts of glucose into energy, which leaves your brain cells’ supply of cellular energy depleted. NAD+ Injections are one way to stimulate neural plasticity, reduce neuroinflammation, and promote mental sharpness. Patients often report improved mental clarity, memory, and ability to focus.

3. Assists in Weight Management

The NAD+ coenzyme is essential to the body’s metabolic processes. As we age, our metabolism slows down, which can cause excessive weight gain. NAD+ helps the body to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP)¹, an energy-carrying molecule that converts chemical energy from food molecules into fuel for other bodily functions.When used in tandem with a regimen of diet and exercise, NAD+ Therapy can help patients maintain a healthy weight by stimulating ATP production. The more ATP your body produces, the more efficiently your metabolism functions.

4. Boosts Energy

Not only does ATP convert food molecules into usable energy and deliver that fuel to other cells, it also boosts your energy levels in the process. Because of NAD+’s essential role in the production of ATP, NAD+ Therapy can increase energy levels, reduce fatigue, and combat exhaustion. Feeling depleted after a long transatlantic flight? NAD+ Injections are a great way to reduce the side effects of jet lag.

5. Aids in Muscle Development and Recovery

NAD+ Therapy can help boost energy levels and improve reaction times, which are essential for peak athletic performance. Supplementing NAD+ as part of a wellness or exercise routine may help develop muscles during workouts, as well as assist in muscle recovery and repair post-workout.

6. Supports Pain Management

One of the more popular uses for NAD+ Therapy is in the assistance of managing pain. NAD+ has been shown to reduce inflammation, which is a key contributor to the experience of pain. Best of all, NAD+ Therapy is a non-addictive pain management solution, making it a great option for those who want to avoid the dangers of opioids.

7. Improves Mood

NAD+ has been shown to boost serotonin, the “feel-good” chemical within the brain. Obtaining NAD+ treatment can boost a deficiency in serotonin, which may positively influence the side effects of depression and anxiety.

Methylcobalamin, or vitamin B12

B12 is a B-vitamin. It is found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meats, and dairy products. Although methylcobalamin and vitamin B12 are terms used interchangeably, vitamin B12 is also available as hydroxocobalamin, a less commonly prescribed drug product, and methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin is used to treat pernicious anemia and vitamin B12 deficiency, as well as to determine vitamin B12 absorption in the Schilling test. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin found in foods such as meat, eggs, and dairy products. Deficiency in healthy individuals is rare; the elderly, strict vegetarians (i.e., vegan), and patients with malabsorption problems are more likely to become deficient. If vitamin B12 deficiency is not treated with a vitamin B12 supplement, then anemia, intestinal problems, and irreversible nerve damage may occur.

The most chemically complex of all the vitamins, methylcobalamin is a water-soluble, organometallic compound with a trivalent cobalt ion bound inside a corrin ring which, although similar to the porphyrin ring found in heme, chlorophyll, and cytochrome, has two of the pyrrole rings directly bonded. The central metal ion is Co (cobalt). Methylcobalamin cannot be made by plants or by animals; the only type of organisms that have the enzymes required for the synthesis of methylcobalamin are bacteria and archaea. Higher plants do not concentrate methylcobalamin from the soil, making them a poor source of the substance as compared with animal tissues.

Vitamin B12, or methylcobalamin, is essential to growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and nucleoprotein and myelin synthesis. Cells characterized by rapid division (epithelial cells, bone marrow, myeloid cells) appear to have the greatest requirement for methylcobalamin. Vitamin B12 can be converted to coenzyme B12 in tissues; in this form it is essential for conversion of methylmalonate to succinate and synthesis of methionine from homocysteine (a reaction which also requires folate). In the absence of coenzyme B12, tetrahydrofolate cannot be regenerated from its inactive storage form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, resulting in functional folate deficiency. Vitamin B12 also may be involved in maintaining sulfhydryl (SH) groups in the reduced form required by many SH-activated enzyme systems. Through these reactions, vitamin B12 is associated with fat and carbohydrate metabolism and protein synthesis. Vitamin B12 deficiency results in megaloblastic anemia, GI lesions, and neurologic damage (which begins with an inability to produce myelin and is followed by gradual degeneration of the axon and nerve head). Vitamin B12 requires an intrinsic factor-mediated active transport for absorption, therefore, lack of or inhibition of intrinsic factor results in pernicious anemia.

Methylcobalamin B12 Shot

How is ours different from the doctors or weight loss clinics? It comes down to dose size and molecules. Cyanocobalamin is the traditional choice of both places. It is synthetic so it is cheap, stable, and easy to store. Methylcobalamin is naturally occurring, does not shelf well and is quite expensive. We also use a 5mg dose, versus most places using 1mg doses. Cyanocobalamin is made with cyanide molecules to create its stability. The body has to strip the stable cyanide, then put the cobalamin (b12) through the folate wheel to use it. This process causes a lot (80% or more) to not be absorbed by the body. Injecting cyanocobalamin is no more effective than swallowing it. Methylcobalamin is natural, and bioavailable immediately. Achieving as high as 96% absorption rates. As a result, visits to us are far less frequent.

Most people look to B12 injections for energy or metabolic reasons. But B12 affects so much more than just the energy or ability to lose weight. What most people do not know is that B12 helps with Red Blood cell formation and Anemia prevention. It can prevent major birth defects in future babies. It helps bone health and has a hand in preventing Osteoporosis. It can reduce the risk of Macular Degeneration (blurry vision as we get older). It improves mood and has direct effects on depression. It prevents the loss of neurons in the brain. It improves heart health by lowering the level of the amino acid Homocysteine in the body that is linked to heart disease. Lastly, it even plays into the skin, hair and nail health.

How long will it take to feel it?

This is a loaded question. The reason it is difficult to answer is that we are not pulling a blood panel to determine deficiency levels. If VERY deficient one may feel tired after the first round and could potentially develop acne. The tired feeling comes from jump starting a lot of the above listed systems and the body feeling exhausted running them. The acne is proof the immune system is fired back up and is fighting infection below the skin. It is also proof there may not be adequate water intake =) Do not overmedicate the skin. Give the immune system some water and time to kill the bacteria. It is not pleasant, but it is normal. If only slightly deficient it may be the same day or in the soon to be days after. If nothing is felt immediately, this is also common. We recommend doing at least 3 rounds of shots to give the body time to recognize that it is going to be supplied regularly. A good judge of these shots working is lowered irritability, mental clarity, better sleep and circulation efficiency. Everyone likens feeling “energy” to a caffeine buzz. That is not what general energy feels like. We are not releasing adrenaline into the blood the way caffeine does. It will not feel like that, so do not expect it.

Most people pair the Methylcobalamin B12 with the Lipo shot because they work well together. This does not mean they are ineffective alone.

Performance

ISOLEUCINE

Isoleucine is one of the three branched chain amino acids alongside both leucine and valine. Relative to the other two BCAAs, isoleucine is intermediate for its ability to induce muscle protein synthesis (stronger than valine, but much weaker than leucine) but is able to significantly increase glucose uptake and the usage of glucose during exercise. Isoleucine does not promote glycogen synthesis, however.Isoleucine can increase glucose uptake into a muscle cell. Isoleucine can be seen as the BCAA which mediates glucose uptake (into a cell) and breakdown (into energy) to a larger degree than other amino acids and may serve a role as a hypoglycemic (in diabetics) or as a performance enhancer.

LEUCINE

Leucine is one of the 3 essential branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). These amino acids can be used by skeletal muscle to give energy during exercise. Eating foods that have complete protein gives enough of these amino acids. This includes foods such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and milk. Results of studies have shown these amino acids improve exercise performance, can help build muscle mass, and help you recover from exercise. Leucine can help in healing skin and bones. It can increase muscle growth and lean body mass. It can increase production of human growth hormone (HGH). It can help control blood sugar.VALINE – L-valine is one of the essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are those amino acids that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through dietary sources. L-valine is also what is called a branch chain amino acid (BCAA). It works along with two additional BCAAs known as Leucine and Isoleucine.L-valine and the other BCAAs are crucial for muscle protein synthesis and muscle tissue repair. For these reasons, L-valine has become an important supplement for people who are engaged in certain types of high-intensity training.The metabolism that goes on specifically in muscles requires the presence of L-valine. Some athletes focus on the other BCAAs for their workout supplements, but many people have come to see L-valine is of particular importance.L-valine helps build muscle by bringing more glucose to the muscles as they are stressed and worked. On its own, valine does not build muscle. But taken with leucine and isoleucine, it helps facilitate greater muscle development. Valine also assists with brain function, and it can help you sleep. A bonus for the insomniacs.

ARGININE

Arginine is necessary to produce nitric oxide, a signaling molecule that’s needed for a variety of bodily processes and functions, including blood flow regulation, reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure in hypertensive adults, mitochondrial function, and cellular communication. By increasing nitric oxide in the body, arginine provides better oxygenation to muscles and enhances exercise performance. Research has shown a variety of potential benefits like treating and preventing preeclampsia (a dangerous condition characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine), erectile dysfunction, heart disease, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and improving glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. A study in 144 people with impaired blood sugar regulation found that treatment with arginine for 18 months reduced the chances of diabetes development over a 90-month period.

Calm

GAMMA AMINOBUTYRIC ACID

It slows down your brain by blocking specific signals in your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord). GABA is known for producing a calming effect. It’s thought to play a major role in controlling nerve cell hyperactivity associated with anxiety, stress and fear.

MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE

Your heart, kidneys and other organs, as well as your muscles, all rely on magnesium for their normal day-to-day function. It plays an essential role in a wide variety of chemical reactions, helps regulate your blood pressure and blood glucose levels, and also helps your body regulate its levels of other vital nutrients such as vitamin D, calcium, potassium, zinc and copper. Foods with significant magnesium content include nuts, tofu, leafy greens, whole grains, legumes, blackstrap molasses and wheat bran. Other forms of supplemental magnesium include magnesium gluconate, magnesium lactate and magnesium citrate. Magnesium ensures normal heart rhythms. Some research takes the benefits of the mineral a step further by suggesting it may play a role in long-term heart disease prevention. While patients with heart disease may have low magnesium blood levels, more research is needed to prove a solid link between the mineral and heart health.

TAURINE

Taurine has important functions in the heart and brain. It helps support nerve growth. It might also benefit people with heart failure by lowering blood pressure and calming the nervous system. This might help prevent heart failure from becoming worse.

THEANINE

L-theanine is an amino acid naturally found in plant sources such as tea leaves and some mushrooms. L-theanine benefits include helping to support alertness, relaxation, and sleep. The appeal of L-theanine stems from its ability to support a state of alert relaxation, so it can calm you down without causing drowsiness.

Clarity

ARGININE

Arginine is necessary to produce nitric oxide, a signaling molecule that’s needed for a variety of bodily processes and functions, including blood flow regulation, reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure in hypertensive adults, mitochondrial function, and cellular communication. By increasing nitric oxide in the body, arginine provides better oxygenation to muscles and enhances exercise performance. Research has shown a variety of potential benefits like treating and preventing preeclampsia (a dangerous condition characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine), erectile dysfunction, heart disease, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and improving glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. A study in 144 people with impaired blood sugar regulation found that treatment with arginine for 18 months reduced the chances of diabetes development over a 90-month period.

CHOLINE

Choline supports several vital bodily functions and may offer a wide range of other health benefits, such as: Improving memory and cognition. Choline is an essential nutrient for brain development. In one observational study of 2,195 participants aged 70–74 years, those with higher choline levels had better cognitive functioning than participants with low choline levels.Another observational study from 2019 found that inadequate levels of choline, vitamin C, and zinc were associated with poorer working memory in older men. It also protects heart health. The authors of a 2018 study found an association between higher dietary intakes of choline and a lower risk of ischemic stroke. The study looked at nearly 4,000 African American participants, with an average 9 year follow-up period. It boosts metabolism. Some research has shown that choline plays a role in metabolizing fats.The authors of a small 2014 study found that female athletes who took choline supplements had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) and leptin levels than the control group. Leptin is a hormone that controls body fat. It can reduce the risk of pregnancy complications. Choline can affect fetal development and may influence pregnancy outcomes. In one 2013 study, for example, women in their third trimester of pregnancy received either 480 milligrams (mg) or 930 mg of choline per day. Those who took higher doses had reduced markers of preeclampsia. Symptoms of preeclampsia include high blood pressure, swelling, and severe headaches. It has been shown to improve cystic fibrosis symptoms. One 2018 study found that choline supplementation improved lung function and reduced symptoms of fatty liver disease in 10 adult males with cystic fibrosis.

GLUTATHIONE

Glutathione is said to protect against a wide range of health problems, including atherosclerosis, Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, alcoholism, asthma, cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, hepatitis, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Beyond obvious immune system benefits glutathione also helps improve psoriasis, reduces cell damage in alcoholic AND non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, improves insulin resistance, increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease, reduces symptoms on Parkinson’s, helps fight inflammation and flare ups of ALL autoimmune diseases, reduces oxidative damage in children with Autism, reduces the impact of uncontrolled diabetes, reduces respiratory disease symptoms, can reduce visibility of sun spots, making DNA – the building blocks of proteins and cells, forming sperm cells, breaking down free radicals, helping certain enzymes function, regenerating vitamins C and E, transporting mercury out of the brain, helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fats, assisting regular cell death (a process known as apoptosis) and a whole host of other things. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world.

B Complex

B1

Boosts energy production, helps fight depression, great for diabetes, reduces blood pressure and heart complications, prevents kidney and circulation problems, minimizes the risk for heart disease, improves memory.

B2

Plays an important role in breaking down nutrients in food, including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to produce energy. Without it, we simply could not function. It can also help prevent or treat migraines, certain cancers, cataracts, preeclampsia, seizures, and Dementia, it reduces likelihood for migraines, helps properly develop skin lining of the digestive tract, blood cells and promotes brain function, helps reduce homocysteine levels in the blood, can help reduce acne, muscle cramps, inflammation of nerves. There is also evidence that vitamin B2 is helpful in preventing cancer. The underlying theory is that riboflavin can protect cellular DNA from being damaged by cancer-causing agents like cigarette smoke. Cataracts are a common aging-related condition in which the lens of the eye begins to cloud over. People who have riboflavin in their body appear to have a lower risk of developing cataracts. In addition to its role in metabolism and blood cell synthesis, vitamin B2 enables the conversion of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) to its active coenzyme form and the conversion of tryptophan to niacin.

B3

Niacin is essential for proper digestive function and also supports healthy skin and nerves. In addition, niacin may help to reduce stress, improve circulation, and slow the effects of aging. While niacin deficiencies are rare, some people take niacin supplements to help with certain conditions including: Acne, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis, Cataracts, Diabetes, High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Migraines, Motion sickness, Osteoarthritis and Premenstrual syndrome.

B5

In addition to playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands, small glands that sit atop the kidneys. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly B2 (also called riboflavin). It is sometimes called the “anti-stress” vitamin. Your body needs pantothenic acid to synthesize cholesterol. A derivative of pantothenic acid called pantethine is being studied to see if it may help lower cholesterol levels in the body. It helps with high cholesterol, skin care and wound repair, and rheumatoid arthritis.

B6

Vitamin B6 is known as a “helper molecule” that affects several biochemical processes. B6 metabolizes nutrients and also synthesizes hemoglobin (which carries oxygen through the blood), antibodies (which supports the immune system), and neurotransmitters (which send nerve signals). A deficiency in vitamin B6 affects the body’s ability to process fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, as important circulatory, immune, and nervous system functions begin to break down. Vitamin B6 is often used to help treat a number of conditions including… Age-related macular degeneration, Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), Cancer, Hyperemesis gravidarum (“morning sickness”), Kidney stones, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) Pyridoxine-dependent seizures in infants, Sideroblastic anemia (a form of hereditary anemia) Stroke, Tardive dyskinesia (a neurologic side effect of antipsychotic drugs).

B12

In addition to playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands, small glands that sit atop the kidneys. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly B2 (also called riboflavin). It is sometimes called the “anti-stress” vitamin, but there is no concrete evidence whether it helps the body withstand stress.Your body needs pantothenic acid to synthesize cholesterol. A derivative of pantothenic acid called pantethine is being studied to see if it may help lower cholesterol levels in the body.

Lipotropic, or MIC

Lipotropic or lipo injections are a mixture of compounds that may aid in the reduction of adipose tissue (fat). The mixture of compounds individually may be effective, however in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic activity than when administered alone in a synergistic fashion. Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation, this is due to the increased bioavailability of parenteral exposure.

These lipotropic agents are structurally and functionally closely related to the B-vitamins, or are involved in the homeostasis of energy production from fat. These compounds are often employed together in the hope of potentiating fat-loss, thus while the MIC mixture and B vitamin(s) are often injected separately, they are part of the same overall injection cycle. The non-vitamin compounds (MIC) that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and provide the needed metabolic environment of the body for a fatty acid (fat) mobilization and utilization.

Typically, these compounds are administered in concert. Lipotropic compounds are used to increase the potential for release of fat deposits in some parts of the body. The lipotropic agents included in this injection are:

Methionine:

Methionine helps the liver maintain the optimal ability to process fatty acids.1 Methionine is a major constituent of S-adenosylmethionine which has been shown to be associated in genetic regulation and activation of certain genes.2 Methionine contributes to methyl donation to histones that activate certain genetic processes that may be involved in the increase in lean tissue. Although indirectly linked to lipolysis, it is believed that the increase in lean tissue increases resting metabolic rate, therefore increasing the overall required calories that must be obtained from storage or dietary intake. Methionine, via S-adenosylmethionine, has been shown in animal models to increase CNS activity, therefore increasing the caloric requirements required by the CNS3 The downstream effects of this may ultimately lead to increased caloric requirements for the entire organism. Although studies have not been replicated.4 in humans, there may be an association due to the similarity in pathways shared between organisms.

Inositol:

Inositol is a sugar-like molecule, referred to as a sugar alcohol. Even though very similar in molecular structure to glucose, this molecule does not exhibit the traits that simple carbohydrates exhibit. Contrary to simple carbohydrates, this sugar alcohol has been shown to not actively increase adipose storage. In fact, Inositol has been found to decrease fatty acid synthase activity, a multi-enzyme protein that catalyzes fatty acid synthesis. This set of enzymes ultimately enables the body to produce triglycerides fat molecules that reside in adipose tissue (body fat).

Inositol may be effective in reducing insulin resistance, a common condition associated with increased adiposity (body fat). Insulin resistance, a condition to which your body becomes resistant to the activities of the hormone insulin. This condition leads to excess blood glucose levels and a host of symptoms and dysfunctions. A chemical called Inositol phosphoglycan is known to regulate the body’s sensitivity to insulin signaling. Inositol phosphoglycan structurally incorporates Inositol, thus inositol is required for this molecule to exert its regulating behavior.

The proper functioning and sensitivity to insulin is found in most healthy individuals, and is essential in maintaining overall health. Excessive exposure to blood glucose ultimately leads to insulin resistance and poor nutrient transport. Inositol may be effective in reducing this condition while at the same time reducing fatty acid (fat) synthesis.

Choline:

Choline is a simple molecule usually classified as a B vitamin. The B vitamin class is usually involved in the generation of energy and support of metabolism. Choline is an important precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is involved in a host of activities, one of which includes muscular function and contraction. Acetylcholine is a fundamental neurotransmitter that enables the communication between neurons. Increased neural communication results in increased CNS activity which ultimately leads to increased energy expenditure. Energy expenditure requires nutrient input, either from stored energy (fat), or dietary nutrients. Choline exists in a delicate balance and homeostasis with methionine and folate. When these nutrients are not in balance adverse health effects may be present. Along with the increase in CNS activity comes increased cognitive ability, reported by many users. Choline may be effective as a nootropic, or a substance with the ability to increase cognition. Increased neural cognition is thought to be due to choline’s role as a precursor to acetylcholine.

The supplementation of choline has been shown to reduce serum and urinary carnitine. The reduction of carnitine in these fluids may indicate carnitine has been partitioned in tissues that utilize it as a fatty acid mitochondrial transport. When carnitine is used in the mitochondria it transports fatty acids to the location where they are broken down and used as energy. It has also been reported that molecular fragments of fat have been found in urine after carnitine and choline supplementation, which may be due to incomplete fatty acid oxidation and the removal of the subsequent byproducts. This means, choline supplementation may increase the utilization of carnitine and increase the removal of fatty acids, even though all fatty acids are not burned as energy. The fragments of fatty acids not burned as energy are extruded in the urine as molecular fragments.

Lipotropic Shot

B1,2,6,12 (Hydroxocobalamin), Methionine, Inositol, Choline, Carnitine

Most places combine their B12 with their Lipo compound and try to market it as a “Skinny” shot. Mostly because weight loss is a massive business and seeing that something can help people lose weight can even be an emotional trigger. While this is true, it is not promised. For the most part they also only have access to low volume and low doses. We have seen people report 40 lb weight loss combining these shots with better food choices, but our job here is to set proper expectations. The B6 helps convert food to energy and it also helps with red blood cell production. Methionine works to prevent fat accumulation in the liver and keeps the metabolism high. It also helps breakdown sugar and other carbs in the body, converting them to energy. Inositol regulates levels of insulin and serotonin in the body. So, this part plays heavily into stabilizing the mood and managing the appetite. Choline actively detoxes the body, getting rid of harmful chemicals while removing fat and bile from the liver. Carnitine is a protein building block; it helps metabolize body fat into fuel. B1 is an immune system booster that uses fats and carbs to fuel the process. B2 supports B1 in its efforts to boost metabolism and immune support.

How long will it take to feel it?

The Lipo shot is another that does not have a “feel” associated with it. The quickest way to gauge if this shot is taking hold is if people begin sleeping deeper, notice the body forcing people to the bathroom more often to remove waste, noticing less sugar cravings and then overall appetite suppression. This injection can be done bi-weekly with no issues.

Most people pair the Methylcobalamin B12 with the Lipo shot because they work well together. This does not mean they are ineffective alone.

ImmunoShot

Glutathione, Vitamin C, Zinc

Glutathione is said to protect against a wide range of health problems, including atherosclerosis, Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, alcoholism, asthma, cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, hepatitis, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Beyond obvious immune system benefits glutathione also helps improve psoriasis, reduces cell damage in alcoholic AND non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, improves insulin resistance, increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease, reduces symptoms on Parkinson’s, helps fight inflammation and flare ups of ALL autoimmune diseases, reduces oxidative damage in children with Autism, reduces the impact of uncontrolled diabetes, reduces respiratory disease symptoms, can reduce visibility of sun spots, making DNA – the building blocks of proteins and cells, forming sperm cells, breaking down free radicals, helping certain enzymes function, regenerating vitamins C and E, transporting mercury out of the brain, helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fats, assisting regular cell death (a process known as apoptosis) and a whole host of other things. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world.

Vitamin C plays an important role in several bodily functions including the production of collagen, L-Carnitine, and some neurotransmitters. It helps metabolize proteins and its antioxidant activity may reduce the risk of some cancers. Collagen, which vitamin C helps produce, is the main component of connective tissue and the most abundant protein in mammals. Between 1 and 2% of muscle tissue is collagen. It is a vital component in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, skin, cornea, cartilage, bones, the gut and blood vessels. Vitamin C may help in treating cancer. As an antioxidant, it protects the body against oxidative stress and helps prevent the oxidation of other molecules. It appears to regenerate other antioxidants in the body, too. High doses of Vitamin C have been found to reduce the speed of cancerous cell growth. Vitamin C may widen the blood vessels, and this could help protect against heart disease and hypertension, or high blood pressure. Cholesterol levels were found to be lower in individuals with adequate levels of vitamin C. Vitamin C may help lower the risk of cataracts as well as of age-related Macular Degeneration. Diabetes sufferers are less likely to experience deterioration of the kidneys, eyes, and nerves if they maintain proper Vitamin C levels. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron, which can reduce anemia issues. Lead levels may be reduced if there is an adequate intake of vitamin C. Histamine is a substance the immune system produces, resulting in inflammation and other problems. A 1992 study found lower blood levels of histamine in people who had proper Vitamin C Levels.

Zinc is vital for a healthy immune system, correctly synthesizing DNA, promoting healthy growth during childhood, and healing wounds. The human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells). T cells help the body in two ways, controlling and regulating immune responses and attacking infected or cancerous cells. Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune system function. Zinc-deficient people experience increased susceptibility to a variety of pathogens. Zinc has a crucial role in regulating how neurons communicate with one another, affecting how memories are formed and how we learn. Zinc was found to shorten the duration of common cold episodes by up to 40 percent. Zinc plays a role in maintaining skin integrity and structure. Patients experiencing chronic wounds or ulcers often have deficient zinc metabolism and lower serum zinc levels. Zinc is often used in skin creams for treating diaper rash or other skin irritations. Increasing zinc levels through supplementation may reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases. It has been known for decades that zinc has a significant role in immune function. Deficiency has been linked to increased inflammation in chronic disease and triggering new inflammatory processes. Zinc prevents cellular damage in the retina, which helps in delaying the progression of AMD and vision loss. Several studies and trials have linked poor zinc status with low sperm quality. Zinc also has a positive effect on reducing acne, controlling ADHD, minimizing osteoporosis, and preventing and treating pneumonia.

How long will it take to feel it?

The ImmunoShot does not have a general “feel” that should be looked out for necessarily. All three of the components play to internal functions and balance versus making people feel awake or sleep better. One should generally notice an overall feeling of “better” as these 3 components play major parts in many functions of the body. If a cold or something similar was coming on, it could very well stop it in its tracks.

Vitamin D3 Shot


Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting enough vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases. In addition to its primary benefits, research suggests that vitamin D may also play a role in reducing the risk of multiple sclerosis, decreasing the chance of developing heart disease, and helping to reduce the likelihood of developing the flu. Research has shown that vitamin D plays an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. In studies of people with fibromyalgia, researchers found vitamin D deficiency was more common in those who were also experiencing anxiety and depression. Consider adding vitamin D supplements to the diet if someone is trying to lose weight or prevent heart disease. In studies, people taking vitamin D supplementation were able to lose more weight than subjects taking a placebo supplement. The scientists said the extra vitamin D had an appetite-suppressing effect.

How long will it take to feel it?

If there is a “feel” to vitamin D, it would be in mood and diminishing feelings of depression. Over time people may notice the bones etc. feel much stronger. As with any vitamin it is about upkeep and continuing to feed the body the amounts it needs to function at proper levels.

CoQ10

CoQ10 Injections provide a variety of benefits such as, lowering blood pressure, helping you recover from the physical activities, supporting the immune system, promoting anti-aging, preserving brain structure, slowing neurodegeneration, neutralizing free radicals, reducing the frequency of migraines, and it helps burns fat. CoQ10 is a literal powerhouse supplement. CoQ10 – also known as ubiquinone – is a coenzyme. CoQ10 injections provide an energy boost for prolonged periods of strenuous activity as well as helping to speed up recovery.

CoQ10 is a favorite of athletes and anyone seeking a natural boost of energetic power.CoQ10 has been shown to help: increase athletic performance, protect the cells in the body by neutralizing free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress in the body, help treat specific heart conditions (after a heart attack: one study shows that patients who received CoQ10 soon after a heart attack had a much lower rate of subsequent cardiac events and high blood pressure – researchers reported that CoQ10 has the potential to lower systolic blood pressure), reduce migraines, slow the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease, lower levels of inflammatory biomarkers, preserve brain structure, and combat mitochondrial decline.

BIOTIN

You may recognize vitamin B7 or vitamin H by its popular name of Biotin. It is a water-soluble B vitamin found naturally in some foods and also in supplements. Biotin plays a vital role in assisting enzymes to break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins in the food you eat and converts them into energy. It also plays an important role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails. Your body needs Biotin to support a healthy metabolism and speed up weight loss, reduce inflammation, improve acne and eczema, cognitive function, and help lower blood glucose in patients with diabetes.

Although it is rare, Biotin deficiency can cause thinning hair and loss of body hair; a rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and anal area; pinkeye; high levels of acid in the blood and urine; seizures; skin infection; brittle nails; and nervous system disorders. Alcoholism can increase the risk of Biotin deficiency as alcohol can block absorption. About a third of pregnant women also show a mild Biotin deficiency despite eating adequate intakes, though the exact reason is not clear. Symptoms of Biotin deficiency in infants include weak muscle tone, sluggishness, and delayed development. In one 2015 study, women with thinning hair were given an oral marine protein supplement (MPS) containing Biotin and other ingredients, or a placebo pill (no active treatment) twice per day for 90 days. At the beginning and end of the study, digital images were taken of the affected areas on the scalp. Each participant’s hair was also washed, and any shed hairs were counted. The researcher found that women who took an MPS experienced a significant amount of hair growth in the areas affected by hair loss. They also had less shedding.

AMINO BLEND

Glutamine

Glutamine is a key component of glutathione, our most important and abundant antioxidant. It is an amino acid and a building block of protein that affects the processes of growth and function of cells in the stomach and intestines. It is a critical part of the immune system and intestinal health. Glutamine can be used to help treat sickle cell disease, burns, recovery after surgery or injuries, and immune cells, including white blood cells. Studies have also reported that glutamine supplementation may decrease infections and lead to shorter hospital stays after surgery. In the human body, the intestines are considered the largest portion of the immune system. Glutamine helps maintain the barrier between the inside of your intestines and the rest of your body which prevents harmful bacteria or toxins moving from your intestines.

Due to its role as a building block of protein, glutamine may decrease muscle soreness and improve recovery after intense exercise. In one study, 31 people took glutamine during six weeks of weight training, by the end of the study, both groups showed improved muscle mass and strength.

 

It plays a tremendous role in neutralizing sugar cravings.

Ornithine

Ornithine’s biggest responsibility is to help your body with detoxification. It is an important gear in the machinery of the urea cycle. The urea cycle is one of your body’s waste management systems. It takes ammonia, a waste product of amino acid breakdown, and converts it to urea, which the kidneys can then excrete in urine. High levels of ammonia in the blood can cause all kinds of health problems, including cognitive defects and personality changes. Ornithine promotes the formation of other important substances in the body like Glutamic acid which is an essential neurotransmitter that helps with memory and concentration; and proline which helps the body break down protein and produce collagen. Ornithine can potentially help sleep quality and chronic liver disease.

This particular amino acid is also relatively popular among athletes and bodybuilders due to its capacity of removing excess nitrogen from your body. Some evidence suggests that ornithine increases endurance and accelerates recovery after exercise. In two clinical studies, people taking ornithine recovered faster from exercise and reported feeling less fatigued.

 

Citrulline & Arginine


Citrulline is made in the liver and intestine. Its function is to detoxify ammonia and help dilate the blood vessels. Citrulline has several health promoting properties, and is used for health conditions including, sickle cell anemia, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, and improving athletic performance. A 2010 randomized double-blind study (the gold standard of research studies) involving 41 men, discovered that a single dose of citrulline malate (CM) resulted in a significant increase in the number of barbell bench presses (accounting for 52.92% more repetitions) and a 40% decrease in muscle soreness after exercise. Citrulline is a precursor to arginine. It is transformed into arginine which is converted into a chemical called nitric oxide through a series of enzymatic reactions that take place primarily in your kidneys.

 

Arginine is necessary for the production of nitric oxide, a signaling molecule that’s needed for a variety of bodily processes and functions, including blood flow regulation, reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure in hypertensive adults, mitochondrial function, and cellular communication. By increasing nitric oxide in the body, arginine provides better oxygenation to muscles and enhances exercise performance. Research has shown a variety of potential benefits like treating and preventing preeclampsia (a dangerous condition characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine), erectile dysfunction, heart disease, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and improving glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. A study in 144 people with impaired blood sugar regulation found that treatment with arginine for 18 months reduced the chances of diabetes development over a 90-month period.

 

Lysine & Carnitine

Lysine is one of the essential amino acids, which are those that the body cannot make and that people need to obtain from dietary sources or supplementation. It is a crucial component of proteins with many benefits that range from preventing and treating cold sores to reducing anxiety, weight loss and helping the body absorb calcium, iron and zinc. Lysine can promote the formation of collagen, an essential protein that affects hair, skin and nail health, strengthening the artery walls, wound repair, and muscle growth which contributes to the stimulation of new bone formation. Adequate lysine levels are optimal for maintaining normal health and highly beneficial for people with conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, migraines, liver disease and autoimmune disorders. It is not only beneficial for boosting immunity, but it is also a fat burner. Lysine is used to form Carnitine, a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy.

Carnitine is a proclaimed performance supplement and fat burner. It helps boost the metabolism by rigorously transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria cell converting them to usable energy rather than stored on the body. In our body, it is formed in the liver and kidneys, and is stored in muscles, brain, and heart tissues. Carnitine incorporates medicinal benefits like enhancing learning abilities and indirectly preventing Alzheimer's and other brain conditions, reducing blood pressure, reducing symptoms of type 2 diabetes, and inflammatory processes associated with heart disease.

General Information

Quick Frequently Asked Questions:

How long to feel it? Can be immediate, can take 2-4 doses.

Sometimes the initial dose makes someone feel worse (Totally normal and just an indication of the deficit.

It's possible to come biweekly if this happens to power through it or choose to do it at 4 week intervals.

Continue reading below. It CAN contribute to it. But it is not guaranteed.

Do we take debit/credit? Yes, we also take HSA, FSA and Cash.

Why are we doing this in a hotel? Because in a conference room we control the environment. We can run it as a clinic. Versus doing them in a business lobby/Kroger/etc where it is not a controlled environment. They are easy to find, have ample and lit parking and it helps us keep overhead down so we can give the good stuff without having to pass along costs of having 40 individual clinics. These same rooms are used for blood drives, health fairs, and many other medical acts. The processes and protocols do not change. That is why places even have converted busses to collect blood in. The staff determines sanitation and safety, not the physical location.

The injections are good for 4 weeks, but are fine to do bi-weekly as we are in each location that often.

Additional Info / FAQ


**Which shots are right for me? **

All our injections have little to literally no opportunity for toxicity, so fear of overdose should not be a concern. In terms of what is right for an individual’s body, this is why we provide so much information about the offerings. We are not doing any diagnosing, nor are we attempting to “treat” any symptoms. These are meant to be used as a supplemental to support the bodies need for vital nutrients. Humans do not consume enough of the right foods to get everything needed to support every internal system, as a result sometimes it needs help. Some injections work great in pairs or in groups, for example, the B12 shot and the Lipo shot are commonly combined because they work amazing together. Some people choose to do the B12, Lipo and Immuo because it covers literally every piece needed for strong immune systems. The breakdowns of the compounds should help people determine which systems they feel are most likely to need help. In the end, everybody’s body… is different. We are here to answer any questions there may be!

How often should I come?

We offer them bi-weekly. Everyone is welcome to do them every two weeks, but every four is enough or some people. Being they are vitamins and amino acids there is no way to overdose on them and everyone’s needs are different!

Post-Injection Education:

Are there side effects? If people spend enough time on WebMD anything can turn into something terminal. We give just over 4000 injections a month. The most common feeling post injection is potentially feeling flush or having a “bubble gut” situation if anything at all. Everything in these injections is naturally occurring and is something derived from food, just not enough of it. If anything feels out of the ordinary post injection, please message the business page so we can walk through it together. We are not here to collect money and hope all goes OK; our goal is to make everyone feel better!

Possible Injection Site Irritants:

It is common for the area post injection to be sore. It is also common for there to be a harder lump that can be tender to the touch as an injection is causing trauma to the area treated and we are leaving a full ml of compound in the muscle. Using warm and cold compresses can help mitigate the soreness. This soreness can sometime persist for a few weeks. It happens EXTREMELY rarely but is not unusual.

On occasion there can be bruising, sometimes large bruising. When a needle passes through the skin on the way to the muscle it is possible to nick smaller blood vessels, capillaries, or other blood conduits. The bruising is the blood spreading out in the skin. It is not an indication of any severe injury 99.9% of the time. We do ask that if there is any bruising make us aware of it so we can stay informed.

Post Injection instructions:

PLEASE massage the area of the injection every few minutes for 15 minutes after the shots. This helps spread out the compounds and reduces the chances for a sore injection site or any sort of knot in the muscle.

IF THERE IS A SULFA SENSITIVITY OR ALLERGY PLEASE LET US KNOW SO WE CAN USE THE SULFA FREE LIPO SHOT! HIVES ARE NOT ANY FUN FOR ANYONE!

Prices

All our injections are $30 each, except the NAD+ which is $40. We do offer a 3 shot package for $75. It is your choice of B12, Lipo, Immuno, Coq10, Biotin, Amino Blend, Vitamin D3, B Complex, Calm, Clarity, or Performance. There is no visit cost or taxes.

We opted not to accept insurance because the agreements control cash prices which would literally double them. Plus insurance billing is also expensive and time consuming. We do accept HSA and FSA cards though.
