L-Carnitine Injections

Benefits, Effects and Use

Take a look at L-Carnitine and what you can expect of it. How does it work, does it really work, is it safe to use and why do we encourage it in our HCG Assisted Diet weight loss Program.

What is L-Carnitine?

L-Carnitine is – one of the most important building blocks of protein.  Normal levels enhance the body’s ability to metabolize fat enhancing energy levels. The combination of L-Carnitine and exercise enhance fat burning.

Benefits of L-Carnitine Injections

L-Carnitine enhances energy production, improves heart and brain function and muscular co-ordination. As a result, it enhances muscle building, increases HCG levels and improves strength and stamina thanks to extra energy and an increased potential for building new muscle tissue.

L-Carnitine Injections and Weight Loss

Using these injections for weight loss encourages the metabolism of fat by helping the transfer of fatty acids to the power houses of the cells, the mitochondria. It increases the body’s ability to release stored fat in the form of triglycerides which provide more energy to the body. Your diet becomes easier to stick to because you have sufficient energy and you are able to get more fat burning power out of your workouts.

L-Carnitine and weight loss go hand in hand – provided you also watch your lifestyle.

L-Carnitine injections can be felt as soon as it is absorbed into the bloodstream. You should use it pre-workout to boost your workout results. When used for fat loss, you can expect measurable results within 2 weeks providing you are combining it with the healthy diet and exercise you will be provided..

Using Injectable L-Carnitine

Before making the decision to use L-Carnitine, either as an injection on its own or in a combination such as the Arginine/Carnitine Combo, there are a few things you might want to know. Below we have attempted to answer some of the most commonly asked questions about using L-Carnitine injections.

How to Inject L-Carnitine

Intramuscular injections are required to allow for slow release of the L-Carnitine into the bloodstream. The best sites for this type of injection are the buttock and thigh. If you choose the former, you will need someone to help you with the injection. It is possible to inject yourself in the thigh, but the density of the muscles will result in your feeling the shot a little more. For instructions on how to administer an intramuscular injection, including detailed infographics.

Here are some important things to keep in mind:

  • Do NOT inject L-Carnitine intravenously
  • L-Carnitine can be taken any time of day but is best taken pre-exercise
  • Do NOT use L-Carnitine if you are pregnant or breast feeding
  • Change the injection site regularly to prevent scarring (1 inch apart is ideal)
  • Dispose of used needles correctly
  • Always follow storage and dosing instructions given
  • Consult a doctor if you are taking medications or have any preexisting medical conditions

The Recommended Dose for L-Carnitine?

Positive results were obtained when administered on a daily basis.

If you are using daily L-Carnitine injections, it is a good idea to cycle off them every 5 weeks and then give your body a 2-3 week break before starting again.

Choose Your Injection Site?

The upper buttock at the hip is considered to be the best site for your injection. Inject slowly.

L-Carnitine injections are no more painful than other injections. Limit discomfort by:

  • Injecting the buttock. It hardly hurts at all and recovers quickly.
  • Ensure that the alcohol you used to disinfect the skin is dry before injecting.
  • Injecting the solution slowly.
  • Relaxing the muscle during the injection.

Side Effects of L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine injections – or anything you inject into your body should not be taken lightly.

The only serious contra-indication is a tendency towards seizures. If you experience seizures, you should not use L-Carnitine. If you suffer from an under-active thyroid, your condition may or may not be aggravated. There is no information on its effects in pregnant women, so it should be avoided during pregnancy and breast feeding..

In rare cases, minor L-Carnitine side effects such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea as well as dizziness and headaches have been reported.

Most healthy individuals do not experience any side effects of these injections. Because the body excretes any excess easily, you can’t overdose. However, more is not better since it will simply be excreted. Stick to the recommended dose if only to save yourself some money!

Gary is a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. He spent time understanding my unique health challenges and weight loss goals, then tailored a program to my exact needs. He takes a scientific approach to fat loss and, as such, his programs have continually evolved to incorporate the most up-to-date information available on the HCG program. As a result, I’ve lost a total of 54 pounds, without hunger or plateaus. His support and my results have been amazing! Thank you Bodyology!

Weston, Florida

HCG is the way to go!!! After trying diet after diet and pill after pill I was skeptical at first especially with 800 calorie diet. However the price was right and the staff was professional, knowledgeable and very nice. It was exciting to step on the scale each day and see myself loose a pound a day. FINALLY SOMTHING THAT WORKS!! Thank you Bodyology Center!

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

My experience with HCG Assisted Diet has been amazing! When I first looked into the diet I was pretty skeptical unsure as to whether I would actually be able to stick to such a restricted diet. However; with My counselors, not only did I benefit from the HCG products and supplements they sold to me, but I also had Gary’s support throughout my experience.. Altogether I lost 24 lbs. from when I first started at 157lbs. I highly recommend this company to anyone interested in losing weight quickly and learning to adjust a more healthy eating habit.

Lake Park, Florida

I started my HCG shots early in March I was 190.0 lbs. Today April 30 I am happy to say that I weigh 168.4lbs a this process was hard in the beginning but my cravings and temptations soon went away then I was craving a grape fruit and grilled chicken everything that people would never think of eating like Black coffee in the morning or grilled chicken with little to no season were the food that I now crave. My weight loss journey has just begun and I will continue to stay healthy and maintain my weight throughout the 4 years I attend UF.

Hallandale, Florida

I just finished my HCG program at Bodyology and it was wonderful!! I was hesitant at first to try this program, but the more I read about it, the more I felt it was perfect for me. The clinic is beautiful, and everyone there treated me like I was the most important patient they had. The explained the program in great detail, and told me that I could always call with any questions or concerns. It was easy to follow and my total weight loss was 28 pounds which I have now kept off for six months. So far I have recommended Bodyology Center to three of my friends and I am confident that they will be just as pleased as I am.
Thank you so much,

Pembroke Pines, Florida

I made a decision to do something about my weight. It is not easy once you are in a habit of making poor food choices to now make good ones. I went to HCG clinic and the people there are very helpful and want to see you succeed and lose weight. The people here are great. They encourage you and help to customize a diet that will work for you. I needed the support of people, nurse and Dr. who is consulted as needed.  The first two weeks are difficult. Once you start seeing you will stick with diet. The end result is what you keep your eye on!!!  Look forward to losing at least 35 pounds with the help of HCG Results Diet Center.

Miami, Florida

My HCG Program ROCKS!!! I just had my second child (which made me almost double my clothing size). My friend recommended this HCG Program her co-worker was doing and I was all for it! I’m now doing my 2nd Round of HCG with this clinic and I love it! Now I’m enjoying the results of the program. The staff is super friendly and make you feel like family. I don’t feel hunger and have none of my usual cravings. This is by far my best weight loss experience EVER!!!!

Hollywood, Florida

The staff at My HCG Program is great to work with. They understand your concerns and don’t try ‘hard sell’ you on a lot of things you don’t need or weren’t looking for when you contacted them. Their pricing is fair unlike a lot of other clinics that are trying to charge as much as they can for HCG or other services. I lost 30 pounds in my first treatment round and I am a return customer on my way to getting the other 30 lbs. off.
