Why the combination of vitamin B12 with lipotropic agents?
While the mixture of these 3 lipotropic compounds individually may be effective, in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic activity than when administered alone in a synergistic fashion.
Why take the Lipo-B injections instead of pills?
Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation, this is due to the increased bioavailability of parenteral exposure.

These compounds are often employed together in the hope of potentiating fat-loss.

What benefit is expected by adding lipotropic agents to B12?
