Exercise is an essential component of losing weight. It’s important to develop a routine of regular exercise in order to ensure that the body is able to lose fat and build muscle.

By taking certain vitamins and nutrients you can actually aid your workout and your weight loss by boosting your body’s ability to lose fat at the same time that you’re preserving your muscle mass. One such nutrient combo that can help ensure your workouts are more effective for weight loss is MIC/L-Carnitine.

Recently, MIC/L-Carnitine weight-loss has grown in popularity. At Regenerate Medical Concierge, we offer a MIC/L-Carnitine weight-loss program with medical supervision to help you lose weight quickly. Doctors would not normally encourage attempting dramatic weight loss in 30 or even 60 days, because it can be hard on the body.

However, when you have trouble losing weight with a regular diet, getting the help of a doctor can be the best choice. The MIC/L-Carnitine weight-loss program can be done at home or in the office. The doctor will check in with you weekly to make sure you are healthy.

What is MIC/L-Carnitine?

MIC/L-Carnitine is a lipotropic agent. Lipotropics, as they are commonly known, are a specific combination of amino acids and nutrients that are used in conjunction with exercise and healthy eating to aid in healthy, safe weight loss. Lipotropics such as MIC/L-Carnitine use safe injections to help your body change the way it stores/utilizes fat for energy. This method is often used with people who have tried a few diets with little or no success and who have 15 or more pounds to lose.

What nutrients and amino acids make up MIC/L-Carnitine?

There are four natural components that makeup MIC/L-Carnitine:


Methionine is an amino acid that stimulates the body’s ability to produce the growth hormone Somatotropin. Methionine is an essential part of MIC/L-Carnitine. With elevated levels of Methionine, the production of Somatotropin is increased. This is important for weight loss because Somatotropin causes protein synthesis and increases fat oxidation. What this means is that Somatotropin actually works to burn fats which are then used as the fuel to synthesize proteins. Additionally, methionine breaks down fat deposits as well, which is good news for your arteries.


Inositol is a B-vitamin related carbohydrate that works to improve the way that the body’s cells respond to insulin. If cells become resistant to insulin, the blood glucose is stored as fat instead of used for energy, which causes weight gain instead of weight loss.

However, by using Inositol, the blood glucose is directed towards the appropriate energy usage instead of as fat storage. Another benefit of Inositol is that it helps to boost the levels of Serotonin in the brain which reduces depression and anxiety. Those emotional states are known to lead to emotional eating which can cause weight gain.

Inositol works together with the other aspects of MIC/L-Carnitine to aid in weight-loss. In fact, in conjunction with Choline, Inositol helps to transport fat for energy.


Choline is an essential nutrient that is necessary for controlling the buildup of fat and cholesterol in the body. The vitamin burns body fat which makes it easier for a person to lose weight. Not only that, choline also helps to improve metabolic health, regulate memory, mood, and muscle control, among other things.

According to the NIH (National Institue of Health), the majority of Americans, including those taking oral supplements, still aren’t getting enough choline to meet the daily recommended amounts. Those who have low levels of Choline have experienced liver damage known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, as well as muscle damage and weight gain. Choline is produced in the liver and can also be gained through eggs, whole grains, beef liver, broccoli, and cabbage.


L-Carnitine is another B-vitamin “conditionally essential” nutrient. Formed in the liver and kidneys, L-Carnitine is created from amino acids Lysine and Methionine. This nutrient is stored in muscles, the brain, and in sperm. You can gain L-Carnitine from red meat, animal products, avocado, and soybeans. The nutrient is “conditionally essential” because the body produces it, however without enough, there can be serious consequences.

There are two forms of Carnitine, D-Carnitine and L-Carnitine. While D-Carnitine is inactive, L-Carnitine is a natural, active nutrient that works seamlessly with the other MIC components to help with weight loss. It does this by transporting fat into the mitochondria of cells. In the mitochondria, the fats are oxidized into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel for cells.

It’s important to be aware that L-Carnitine can actually work whether the body is at rest or exercising, however, it is especially effective during intense exercise. This is why, for optimal weight loss, it is essential to take MIC/L-Carnitine while exercising. If a person doesn’t have adequate L-Carnitine, the majority of their dietary fats won’t make it into the Mitochondria in order to be burned for fuel. This can cause muscle weakness, stunted growth, an enlarged liver, and other dangerous conditions.

There are a number of other benefits of having adequate L-Carnitine in the body. The nutrient can keep blood glucose levels low, aid in glycogen repletion, decrease muscle soreness, improve physical recovery, improve blood flow, aid in muscle growth, and also protects the body from fatigue.

Do I Still Need a Diet To Lose Weight With MIC/L-Carnitine Shots?

Absolutely. The shots will improve your liver function, help your body optimize the utilization of fat stores, and help you detoxify as you lose weight. But you can’t lose weight and keep it off without a lifestyle change.

The good thing about MIC/L-Carnitine shots is that you can take them with a rapid weight-loss plan. Rapid weight-loss plans can be tricky nutritionally and chemically, but MIC/L-Carnitine shots are especially effective with these plans. They produce amazing results when combined with B vitamin shots.

There are always certain foods you can eat to help you get more B vitamins and lose more weight. Your doctor can discuss these with you when you go over your medically supervised weight-loss plan.

Note that exercise is an extremely important part of losing weight and staying healthy after your diet is over. If you want to stay at a healthy weight, you have to change your habits. A solid exercise regimen is a requirement, but the good news is that there’s something for everyone in the fitness world.

How Do I Know if MIC/L-Carnitine Shots Are Right For Me?

It’s essential when undertaking any kind of rapid weight loss plan to discuss with your doctor, and medical supervision is the best plan of action in this case. The nutrients and amino acids in the MIC shots support the overall health of the body and the processing of fat. When you take up rapid weight loss, nutritional supplements can be very important. While some people can eat amazing amounts of vegetables, not all patients can eat the number of veggies required to supplement the nutrients lost on an intense diet.

The MIC/L-Carnitine weight-loss programs are for those who are ready to make a commitment to change their eating and exercise habits. The programs work for both men and women.
