Lipotropic B shots are used to increase your energy, rev up your metabolism and help if you are deficient in certain nutrients. Lipo B injections bypass the digestive system, and increase your body’s stores temporarily, to help give you a more immediate boost. Many medications, improper diet, medical conditions, and the normal aging process can lead to B deficiency.
