What Is A Lipo-C / MIC / B12 Injection?
Vitamin and amino acid combinations available for injection have been recognized by names such as Lipo- C, MIC, and B12 injections. These combinations have proven to boost weight loss and energy but beware of the ingredients contained in these vitamin cocktails. Not all are created the same and some contain ingredients such as adenosine, which may prove to be harmful.
The vitamin and amino acid combination available at NuReveal contain the following ingredients:
- Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
- Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
- Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
- Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
- Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)
Methionine is an amino acid that the body cannot produce on its own. It is responsible for lowering the histamine level in the blood (positively affecting allergy symptoms), is important for the regulation of acid-base balance (may prevent urinary tract infections), detoxification of heavy metals, and encourages serotonin production.
Inositol is a protein found in plants and animals. Its primary function is to inhibit fat absorption in the liver and may also improve sleep, decrease anxiety and aid in hair growth and health.
Choline is a protein that is synthesized by the body, but is mostly obtained from dietary intake. Choline is essential for neurotransmission, muscle function and fat transport thereby playing a role in decreasing cholesterol levels. Choline has a general anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Choline deficiency can cause a variety of health problems such as fatty liver.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
Thiamine is a water soluble vitamin that the body needs to turn food into energy. Most Thiamine is obtained from food sources.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide is a water soluble vitamin that has an overall anti-inflammatory effect and has an anti-aging effect on skin. It can also be used to treat rosacea.
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
Pyridoxine is a water soluble vitamin that is needed to maintain the health of nerves, skin, and red blood cells.
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
Riboflavin in a water soluble vitamin that promotes energy production and metabolism of fat to energy. It also has antioxidant properties and promotes iron metabolism.
