Losing weight is challenging. Here are some of the health benefits of HCG and B12 injections, and how they can help support weight loss.
HCG and B12 Injections: Weight Loss and Other Health Benefits
Many diets aim to help people lose a few pounds, but individuals looking to lose a significant amount of weight are often at a loss for where to begin. Some diets call for extreme calorie restriction, which will work for a time, but the side effects are often unbearable: weakness, hunger pains, and more.
What’s more, many people crack under the pressure of such caloric restrictions and end up binge eating, which undoes much of their progress. Compounding this problem, these individuals often begin low-calorie diets without doctor supervision, which can put their health at risk.
TeleWellnessMD providers prescribe the HCG and B12 Combo Injection to help boost energy and support weight management goals, but individuals must schedule a wellness consultation before starting the program. In addition, when paired with a low-calorie diet, it’s much more effective than other weight loss programs. A major bonus is that individuals won’t feel the negative hunger effects of low-calorie diets while using HCG and B12 injections.
What are HCG and B12 Injections?
Some individuals may recognize Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) as a hormone that women produce during pregnancy. While some men and women alike use it to assist with fertility, it also has the potential to aid in weight loss. The primary purpose of the addition of HCG in this injection is to help individuals manage a low-calorie diet without feeling the unwanted effects of hunger.
B12 can also aid in weight loss endeavors due to its energy-boosting properties. Its mechanism for doing so is to convert fats and proteins into usable energy, making it an excellent addition to the HCG injection. In fact, B12 deficiencies can lead to weakness and anemia. Considering most sources of B12 come from meats and dairy products, vegetarians and vegans are at an increased risk for B12 deficiency.
Other groups at risk of B12 deficiency include:
- The elderly
- People with digestive conditions such as Crohn’s or celiac disease
- People with a long history of using stomach acid reducers
What these audiences have in common is lower levels of stomach acid. This causes poor absorption of dietary sources of B12. Metformin users also have poor B12 absorption and can benefit from direct injections.
Types of B12: Methylcobalamin Vs. Cyanocobalamin
Not all B12 vitamins offer the same benefits. The most common two are cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin. Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of B12 that is not found in nature. Upon ingestion, it converts into methylcobalamin, but this extra step makes it less bioavailable. When ingested, individuals excrete more cyanocobalamin than they do methylcobalamin, meaning the body retains the later form better. Because of the above facts, we use methylcobalamin in our HCG and B12 injections.
It is important to note that individuals should increase their electrolyte and potassium intake while using HCG and B12 injections. Sometimes, B12 can cause decreased levels of potassium, which can reduce energy levels and result in fatigue. Supplements can help, but there are several dietary sources of electrolytes as well such as bananas, avocados, soybeans, and many other fruits and vegetables. Bananas are also a great source of potassium, so individuals can meet both their electrolyte and potassium needs with this fruit.
Health Benefits of HCG and B12 Injections
While the primary goal is weight loss, these injections have additional benefits as well. Individuals using HCG and B12 injections can experience the following benefits:
- Increased energy levels
- Improved sports performance
- Improved metabolism
- A more robust immune system
- Reduced inflammation
Who Can Take HCG and B12 Injections?
Because of the correlation between HCG and pregnancy, many erroneously assume that HCG and B12 injections are for women only. This is not the case and men can benefit from HCG and B12 injections. However, not everyone is a good candidate for the dietary component of this method of weight loss. During your consultation, discuss your diet with the physician to determine the best strategy for you.
Why HCG and B12 Injections?
Many individuals are wary of needles and may not like the idea of administering shots. However, oral methods of supplementation are less effective and absorption is questionable. While the body can absorb B12, the digestion process eliminates most if not all of the HCG. Injections are the most reliable form to reap benefits.
How to Buy HCG and B12 Injections Online
Because this program requires prescription injections, individuals will need to have a wellness consultation with a physician before they can receive their HCG and B12 injections. We understand your time is valuable so you can schedule this consult to take place over the phone. The physician will discuss your health history to make sure you’re a good candidate for the program.
Losing weight doesn’t have to be a painful venture. If you’re tired of diet programs that don’t work, consider giving HCG and B12 injections a try. Consultations are fast and easy, meaning you can start your weight loss journey right away.
