Most of you reading this are very familiar with B-12 injections and have probably received one or two of them in your lifetime. But you might be wondering what MICC is. MICC is an abbreviation for L-Methionine, Inositol, Choline, and Cyanocobalamin.
What Do They Do?
Now you are probably saying, “great! But what do these supplements do?” The combination of these supplements can often be referred to as injections to aid in “fat burning.” Here is a breakdown of each ingredient’s specific function.
Methionine helps with tissue growth and repair, aiding in structural components related to hair, nails, and skin. Methionine also aids in the excretion of lead and mercury. Methionine is lipotropic, which means it prevents excess fat to build up in the liver.
Inositol aids in cellular signaling across cell membranes, which improves cellular function.
Choline also prevents fat build-up in the liver just as Methionine does. Choline also aids in the metabolism of lipids.
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B-12) has a lot of responsibilities including the production of RNA and DNA, metabolism of proteins, carbs, and fats, is important in neural metabolism, and improves functions of iron.
MICC injections can be given weekly on their own, or in conjunction with a weight loss program. The combined effect of these ingredients provides our patients with a sense of overall improved well-being along with an increase in energy and better mental clarity.
