What are MIC Injections?

MIC injections are a common treatment for fat loss. Like other nutrient-rich treatments, MIC injections work by exposing the body to various nutrients designed to encourage the body to naturally get rid of fatty deposits. If you would like to know more about MIC injections or are interested in getting injections at our location in Newton please contact our office. 

What Does MIC Stand For in MIC Injection?

MIC stands for the three core nutrients used in an MIC injection: 

  • Methionine: This nutrient is a sulfur-based amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of many proteins, enzymes, and cells. Methionine is not naturally produced in the body but often gets into our body via our diet. Protein-rich foods like eggs or fish contain methionine. This amino acid is critical in the removal of fat that is stored in our bodies. 
  • Inositol: Inositol is a sugar that is both made in our bodies and found in foods. It is studied in its relation to our metabolisms and our body’s ability to process foods. 
  • Choline: Choline is naturally made in the body and can be found in foods like fish and eggs. It is similar to B vitamins. It also aids in the bodies processing of various foods. 
  • B12 Vitamins: Although not in the acronym, MIC injections include vitamin B12. When combined with methionine, inositol, and choline, these four ingredients can improve the body’s natural metabolism and encourage the body to remove fats that are being stored.

Can I Lose Weight Using MIC Injections?

Patients who have received MIC injections can lose around 1-2 pounds per week assuming they are also combining the procedure with a healthy lifestyle. MIC injections are not designed to replace a healthy diet and exercise routine but to complement them. Combined with healthy living MIC can help get a higher return on your healthy habits. It is important to view a MIC injection treatment as a way of boosting the effects of a healthy lifestyle. The ingredients of the injection are natural proteins and amino acids that our body either naturally makes or we naturally can get from food. By getting them in higher amounts in a short period of time you are increasing your body’s ability to metabolize food. MIC injections are not a magic enzyme designed to kill or remove fat cells or attack specific problem areas in the body, but rather a way to naturally get better/quicker results when you begin a diet/exercise regiment.  

How Often Should Get MIC Injections?

Any health and wellness plan needs to be tailored to the patient. On average it is common to receive weekly injections during the treatment period. Many patients report that after getting MIC injections they feel an increase in energy that is related to how these ingredients affect both physical and mental health. The boost in energy can help patients tackle their weight loss goals even more effectively by having that extra energy they need to work out without feeling the need to eat extra calories. 

How Long Does it Take for MIC Injections to Work

It often takes up to 30 days to start noticing the weight loss benefits of MIC injections. However results are dependent on your diet and exercise. Additionally, the effects of a boosted metabolism might be felt or noticed prior to seeing the weightloss begin.
