MIC is an acronym for the compounds: L-Methiomine, Inositol and Choline. These are lipotrophic agents which help with the breakdown of fat during metabolism in the body, sometimes referred to as “fat burning” injections. What they do is help the liver process fat cells that have already been broken down by the body, they do not break down fat cells themselves. ** If you are not doing anything to break down your fat cells (diet and exercise) these injections will not help you lose weight or eliminate fat cells. MIC injections are recommended once a week for unto 8 weeks for optimal results.
L-Methionine is one of eight essential amino acids that are the building blocks for proteins but which cannot be produced in the body. Aside from injection or ingestion as a supplement, L-Methionine can be found in meats and diary products, as well as spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts and sesame seeds. L-Methionine is useful in the treatment of liver disease and is a recommended supplement for vegetarians. For weight management, L- Methionine helps the body process and eliminate fat. It is a required amino acid in the production of cysteine and taurine, which help the body eliminate toxins.
Inositol is a carbohydrate, but is not considered a sugar, and was once considered a member of the vitamin B complex, however, since the body is able to synthesize it, it is not a classic vitamin. It is also found predominantly in fruits such as cantaloupe and oranges, as well as bananas, kidney beans, raisins, and peanuts.
In the management of weight, inositol, when used in combination with other B complex vitamins, helps the liver break down fats in the body, and when used in combination with other compounds in a MIC injection, especially choline, inositol forms lecithin which is known to aid in the metabolism of fat.
Choline is considered an essential nutrient that, while produced in the liver, is generally not produced in sufficient quantities. Like inostiol, it is often grouped within the B complex of vitamins, although it is not a true B vitamin. Choline is required in the regulation of the kidneys, liver and gallbladder.
As part of a weight loss program, choline is essential for fat metabolism, it functions as a methyl donor and it assists detoxification reactions in the liver.
Soybeans along with eggs are two of our best choline-based food sources, as well as beef liver, cauliflower, tofu and almonds.
Interestingly, the components of a MIC injection, especially inositol and choline, have been found to improve mental function, improve feelings of depression. MIC injections are typically given weekly for 6-8 weeks.
