About Vitamin MIC B-12 with B-6
This exclusive formulation combines the fat burning power of Lipotropic compounds with the benefits of B-complex vitamins for energy. The B-complex vitamins aid in boosting energy and overall metabolic rate. This, along with proper diet and exercise, can help you reach and maintain your goal weight, in addition to giving you an extra boost of energy.
Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that plays an important role in the body's use of fat. The MIC is the Lipotropic portion of our injections is composed of three amino acids: Methionine, Inositol and Choline. They help your liver process fats at peak efficiency, making your weight loss easier to maintain.
In people consuming low-calorie diets, Vitamin B6 aids in blood glucose regulation by helping convert stored nutrients into energy the body can use. This helps increase metabolism. Vitamin B-6 also increases thyroid activity, which increases resting metabolic rate. In amounts near or slightly above the recommended daily allowance, vitamin B-6 can increase energy, support immune system function and improve memory.

B-12 Deficiency Risk Factors
Both diabetes and some medications for type 2 diabetes can increase the risk of vitamin B-12 deficiency.
The following risk factors can increase the chance of developing vitamin B-12 deficiency:
- Alcohol abuse
- Certain prescription medications, including antacids and some type 2 diabetes drugs
- Having an endocrine-related autoimmune disorder, such as diabetes or a thyroid disorder
- Eating a vegetarian or vegan diet
- Certain gastrointestinal disorders, such as Crohn's disease
- Gastric bypass or the removal of parts of the stomach
People with Gastrointestinal Issues
A gastrointestinal tract that does not function normally may inhibit vitamin B-12 release or absorption. For this reason, people with disorders such as celiac disease and Crohn's disease may be at higher risk of vitamin B-12 deficiency.
Individuals who have undergone gastrointestinal surgery, including weight loss surgery, may have less of the cells necessary to secrete stomach acid and intrinsic factor. As a result, they may struggle to absorb B-12.
Vitamin B-12 shots, rather than oral supplements, may be particularly helpful for people who have gastrointestinal issues because injections tend to bypass these areas.
Research suggests that vitamin B-12 deficiency affects a greater number of older adults than those under the age of 65.
Older adults can be affected by conditions that are linked to a decrease in stomach acid production, including inflammation in the stomach (atrophic gastritis).
Furthermore, lower levels of stomach acid can encourage the growth of certain bacteria in the gut that use B-12, reducing the amount of the vitamin available to the body.
The Institute of Medicine recommend that adults over 50 meet their vitamin B-12 needs with fortified foods, B-12 shots, or other supplements, as these man-made forms appear to be more readily absorbed than naturally occurring B-12.
Vegetarians and Vegans
As vitamin B-12 is found mainly in fish, meat, eggs, and dairy, people who do not consume these foods are at risk of B-12 deficiency and may benefit from regular B-12 shots or other supplements.
Research published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that vegans and some strict vegetarians have low levels of vitamin B-12.
Of 232 vegans studied, over half were classed as being deficient in vitamin B-12. The deficiency was observed in just 7 percent of the vegetarians studied, and in only one of the omnivores.
Vegetarian or vegan women who are pregnant will need to be especially careful about supplementing or consuming fortified foods, as vitamin B-12 transfers to the baby via the placenta and breast milk.
Infants who have vitamin B-12 deficiency can experience permanent and severe neurological issues.
Benefits of Vitamin B-12 Shots
There are several reasons to consider getting a B-12 shot, including:
Reduced risk of vitamin B-12 deficiency and associated complications
The most obvious benefit of receiving vitamin B-12 shots is treating a vitamin B-12 deficiency and avoiding its associated symptoms.
In addition, B-12 shots reduce the risk of some serious complications associated with vitamin B-12 deficiency including:
High levels of assimilation by the body
- Heart disease
- Neurocognitive disorders
- Coordination problems (ataxia)
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Vision loss
- Infertility (although this usually resolves with B-12 treatment)
- Neural tube defects in the babies of women with B-12 deficiency
B-12 shots bypass the stomach and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
Therefore, they are a better option than oral supplements for those who have gastrointestinal issues, including older adults who have low levels of stomach acid or intrinsic factor.
Vitamin B-12 may interact with certain medications. People must always inform their doctor about all prescription and over-the-counter drugs they are taking before receiving a B-12 shot.
Some commonly prescribed medications that may interact with B-12 include:
Allergy and Medical Conditions
- H2 Receptor Antagonists
- Oral contraceptives
- Proton pump inhibitors
Those who have allergies or medical conditions should always inform their doctor before receiving a B-12 shot.
Examples of allergies or conditions that may interact with B-12 shots include:
