Lipo-C for Fat loss, Energy and Metabolism

Back to All Defy Medical Health Articles & Resources

A woman smiles in exercise gear with a towel over her shoulders to show the benefits of LIPO-C for fat loss.

Lipotropics are compounds that help break down fat in the body.

Lipo-C is a custom lipotropic injection that has shown benefit in boosting energy, improving mood, encouraging fat loss, and more.

When combined with a healthy diet and exercise program, lipotropic injections like Lipo-C have helped many patients reach their fitness goals. They are a safe and effective option for most patients, and lipotropic injections typically come with fewer risks than other weight loss aids.

Learn more about each ingredient in Lipo-C, and how injections may be a useful addition to your fat loss plan.

Lipo-C Ingredients

The active ingredients in LIPO-C injections make it an effective supplement for fitness and fat loss. This customized injection combines amino acids and nutrients for a comprehensive injection therapy.


Methionine is an essential amino acid. It’s a precursor to amino acids like taurine and cysteine, and it aids in the creation of S-Adenosyl methionine (SAM-e) and glutathione.

Methionine and the compounds it helps produce are crucial to metabolic health. Methionine also has antioxidant properties, and it encourages the creation of new proteins within cells.


Choline is required for many metabolic processes. It plays a role in the transportation and metabolization of lipids (fat). Choline helps with cell maintenance and DNA synthesis, as well.

In one study with female Taekwondo and Judo athletes, participants who utilized Choline had a lower body mass index overall, plus lower leptin levels. Leptin is a hormone that helps your body control weight, and high leptin levels are often associated with obesity.


L-Carnitine is an amino acid that assists in the breakdown of body fat for metabolic energy. Studies have demonstrated that taking L-Carnitine may help decrease fat mass, preserve muscle during exercise, and reduce muscle fatigue. Other research suggests that L-Carnitine helps to regulate how muscle tissue receives its energy.

L-Carnitine requires higher dosages to reach its full benefits, which is why an injection is the best way to deliver this important amino acid.

B Vitamins

Lipo-C includes B vitamins:

  • Thiamine or B1
  • Pantothenic acid or B5
  • Together, these B vitamins have many benefits. They help the body handle stress, support energy levels, provide antioxidant benefits, support heart and cardiovascular health, and optimize the metabolism.

B vitamins are a useful addition to a Lipo-C injection, and their effects work well with the rest of the lipotropic ingredients.

How to Administer Lipo-C

Lipo-C is typically available as a subcutaneous (SQ) injection. SQ injections are generally less painful and easier to administer than intramuscular injections.

Lipo-C is injected into the fatty layer of the skin, where it can be absorbed into the bloodstream over time. This allows the body to fully utilize the lipotropic injection, with none of the nutrients lost to the digestive tract.

Common SQ injection sites include:

  • The abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs

A typical Lipo-C protocol is two injections per week, but some patients prefer to inject Lipo-C daily. Your protocol will depend on your goals for treatment and your response to lipotropic injections.

Defy Medical works closely with our patients to find the right injection schedule for them. We also provide access to all materials, including needles, syringes, and Sharps containers for safe disposal.

Through our pharmacy partners, we can ship lipotropic injections plus the necessary supplies to your door, with no face-to-face contact needed. We also provide guidance to ensure you’re comfortable with self-administered injections.
