What is Lipo-Vite?
LipoVite, sometimes called Lipotropics, are a series of weekly injections that contain vitamins and amino acids that help increase energy and metabolism.
Lipovite injections can provide an extra boost for those who can’t seem to find a way to break through their weight loss plateau. Lipotropic agents play an important role in the breakdown of lipids, or fats.
Lipovite injections can help improve your body’s ability to metabolize fat by accelerating the removal or decreasing the deposit of fat in the liver, enabling the body to excrete the fat instead of store it as added pounds. When used with proper lifestyle changes, Lipo-Vite can promote weight loss and improve overall health.
