What is Dr. Rodriguez’ SlimJection B-12?

SlimJection B-12 (Lipotropic B-12) is a mixture of B-vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents. These injections are used, non-invasively, to help patients achieve generalized weight loss. SlimJection B-12 injections can help you lose weight in two ways; boosting your energy and metabolism, and increasing the removal of fat from the body. These “fat-burning” lipotropic injections can be done as frequently as once or twice a week. These “fat-burning” lipotropic injections are distinctly different from lipodissolve or mesotherapy injections. SlimJection B-12 can also be used to enhance the results of the new minimally invasive Smartlipo or Vaser LipoSelection fat removal procedures.

Lipotropic Injections: Methionine – Inositol – Choline

Lipotropic literally means fat loving. Basically they are substances that target and help break down fats.

What are the main functions of Lipotropics?

  • They increase the production of lecithin by the liver. This helps to solubilize (dissolve) cholesterol, thus lessening cholesterol deposits in blood vessels and decreasing the chance of gallstone formation. (Gallstones are largely made of cholesterol.)
  • They prevent the accumulation of fats in the liver. A fatty liver can cause sluggish liver function.
  • They detoxify amines (by-products of protein metabolism). This is important for people on a high protein diet.
  • They increase resistance to disease. They bolster the thymus gland to carry out its anti-disease function by stimulating the production of antibodies and stimulating the growth of phagocytes, cells which surround and gobble up invading viruses and microbes. They also recognize and destroy foreign and abnormal tissue.
  • They mobilize the fat and help to break it down.
  • They are combined with Vitamin B6 to help you lose your water weight and Vitamin B12 which boosts your energy level, among other things (See below).

What are some of the important functions of the individual Lipotropics?


  • Is a fat emulsifier (dissolver) which aids in emulsifying cholesterol so that it does not settle on arterial walls
  • Works well with Inositol to effectively utilize fats and cholesterol
  • Deficiency of Choline can lead to cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis).
  • It is being used today for ailments such as gallbladder trouble, diabetes, muscular dystrophy, glaucoma, senility, and memory problems (forgetfulness).
  • The ingredient in fish that makes people refer to fish as “brain food”
  • Choline detoxifies amines that are by-products of protein metabolism.


  • Metabolizes fats and cholesterol, while aiding in the transportation of fat in the blood
  • Helps in the redistribution of body fat and can help lower cholesterol
  • Deficiency of Inositol can lead to accumulation of triglycerides in the liver and hair loss.
  • It works with Vitamin E to facilitate its actions in the treatment of muscular dystrophy.
  • It is used in nerve and muscle disorders such as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
  • Caffeine may cause depletion of Inositol.


  • It works with Choline to detoxify amines which are by-products of protein metabolism.
  • It acts as a catalyst (promotes better functioning) for Choline and Inositol, opening up their full potential and effectiveness.
  • Along with Choline, it aids in reducing liver fat and protects the kidneys.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine):

  • a.k.a. the “mood vitamin” because it helps convert amino acid L-tryptophan into a neurotransmitter (chemical that helps brain cells communicate) called serotonin that provides a sense of calm and well-being
  • By elevating serotonin levels in the brain, B6 may help depression and increase mental stamina.
  • Protects against heart disease and age-related memory decline by lowering levels of homocysteine, an unhealthy amino acid produced when you digest proteins

Vitamin B12:

  • Makes your entire nervous system work more efficiently by maintaining the insulating coating around each nerve fiber, called the myelin sheath– giving you a feeling of “clean energy,” without the jitteriness of caffeine drinks
  • Boosts brain and memory power
  • Essential for healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen to every part of the body
  • Can also reduce homocystine levels to protect against heart disease
  • May help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, depression, and lack of mental focus and concentration
  • May protect the brain against Alzheimer’s Disease by lowering levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). ( High TNF-alpha levels can quicken the progression of Alzheimer’s and the progression of HIV to AIDS.)

How are Lipotropics supplied?

They are supplied in sterile injectable form. Physicians generally prescribe 1 cc per week injected intramuscularly. You can easily and safely self-inject at home with instruction from your physician’s office.

Why injections and not a pill?

Many important supplements are broken down by the hydrochloric acid in your stomach before they can make it to the intestines to be absorbed. For example, up to 98% of oral Vitamin B12 is destroyed in the stomach, so that if you take a 1000mcg pill, only 20mcg may make it into your bloodstream. Injections, with very thin painless needles, are the most effective way to deliver a consistent amount of medicine into your bloodstream.
