If you’re like many people in Missouri and across the U.S., you may be overweight; and weight loss is seldom easy. Excess weight can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression and other diseases that can affect quality or quantity of life. With excess weight also come decreased energy levels, low self-esteem, and poor sleep quality, among other issues. If you are struggling to lose weight and get healthier, you face many challenges. It can be overwhelming trying to figure out how to lose weight and keep it off.

Medical Grade HCG Injections for Weight Loss

Find A Better You also offers HCG injections as a supplemental that will help you achieve weight loss.

What is HGH?

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone that is present in a woman’s body during pregnancy. The hormone allows the fetus to sustain growth through its mother’s food intake. The fetus lives off the calories, stored fat and carbohydrates of its mom. Recent research has found that HCG hormone injections can effectively promote natural weight loss.

How Do HCG Injections Help with Weight Loss?

HCG injections trick the body into thinking it is pregnant. The hormone can be injected in both males and females. The injections of HCG will enhance weight loss because it fools the body into burning fat cells instead of muscle.

For weight loss purposes, the HCG hormone is injected into the participant daily for 42 days. Your body will begin to burn stored fat immediately (up to 3500 calories of per day!) and continue to do so throughout that time. You will not feel as hungry during this time and your energy level will increase without the jittery side effects of other dietary stimulants. The natural hormone even enhances your sleep.

Although HCG injections do work to help with weight loss, the injections alone aren’t enough to fully achieve your goals. Combined with a healthy diet regimen, you can successfully lose the weight that would not come off through diet and exercise alone. You will lose weight gradually, while maintaining or even building muscle mass. You can expect to lose 20-40 pounds as a result of the 42-day injection regimen.

Combining the HCG injection program with our nutrition counseling can help support long-term weigh loss success. Adopting healthier eating habits, promoting a more active lifestyle and making smart choices can help make your weight loss more permanent.

Vitamin Injections

Maintaining good health sometimes requires supplements when the food you eat doesn’t contain sufficient nutrients. Find A Better You offers unique combinations of vitamin options to improve health and nutrition, boost overall energy, and burn body fat. Many of these nutrients are easily and quickly absorbed when taken by injection versus in supplemental tablet or capsule form.

LYPOVITE: (Choline, Inositol, Methionine, Ascorbic Acid, B12, B-Complex, and B6): Lipotropic agents are a class of substances that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. In short, they are fat burners; they promote and encourage the transport of fat from the liver. Our Lipo Injection has 3 amino acids (choline, inositol and methionine) that are important for a healthy liver. Your liver is responsible for cleansing fat and toxins out of your body, so the more healthy your liver is, the better it will work at liquefying and flushing out the fat.


Vitamin B -12: B12 is required for the synthesis of protein and proper digestion. It is also used to metabolize carbohydrates and fats and increase energy levels. When administered as an injection, B-12 is absorbed 100% into the system, whereas when taken orally in the form of a tablet or capsule, B-12 is only 40% absorbed due to filtration functions of the liver.

Vitamin B-6: B-6 is beneficial if you suffer from water retention; it helps to maintain sodium and potassium balance. It is needed for normal brain function. B-6 boosts the immune system and protects the heart muscle from cholesterol deposits. B-6 also helps to reduce PMS symptoms, and helps prevent kidney stones. B-6 is a vitamin that has been vital in the treatment of allergies, arthritis, and asthma.

B-Complex: B-complex provides for healthy function of nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, and mouth. It works to maintain muscle tone and healthy function of the gastrointestinal tract. B-complex aids in alleviating some symptoms of depression as well as anxiety.

Folic Acid: Essential for energy production and formation of red blood cells. Folic Acid is important for healthy cell division and replication. Further, folic acid is involved in metabolizing protein and helps to alleviate depression and anxiety. Folic acid works best when combined with vitamin B-12.

Vitamin C: An antioxidant, Vitamin C is required for tissue growth and protects against the harmful effects of pollution, prevents some types of cancers, and protects against infection and enhances immunity. Vitamin C reduces cholesterol, produces anti-stress hormones, and is required for metabolism of folic acid (tyrosine and phenylalanine).

MIC: This supplement is a combination of Methionine, Inositol and Choline Bitartrate.


Methionine is an antioxidant amino acid which acts as a catalyst for Choline and Inositol to increase their functions. It also aids in the emulsification of cholesterol so it does not stick to the arterial walls. This important amino acid removes heavy metals from the body and aids in building lean muscle mass.

Inositol is a simple carbohydrate that has been shown to transport fat through the blood system. It prevents hardening of the arteries and has been shown to help with depression and anxiety.

Choline Bitartrate is an important fat emulsifier involved in the bio-synthesis of lecithin and formation of the amino acid methionine. This amino acid also aids in hormone production.

Consultation

Your first visit will be a consultation, to discuss your options and develop a plan that will work for you. Even better... the cost of your consult will later be applied to your treatment balance. Which will be scheduled within two weeks.

Is It Permanent?

As with everything, time will eventually cause all skin to loosen. A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief.

Recovery Time

There is no recovery time apart from avoiding the use of tampons and engaging in sexual activity for 7 days. The procedure is quick and painless and can fit into any lunch break. Read more...
