MIC stands for methionine, inositol and choline – the primary compounds in the injection. The injections are taken weekly for a period of about three months to boost weight loss. Methionine, inositol and choline are known as lipotropic substances that help you burn fat while maintaining proper liver function. All of the compounds in the MIC shots are naturally occurring in the body and together speed up the removal of fat within the liver. Methionine is an amino acid that helps prevent excess fat buildup in the body. Inositol, as part of the B-complex of vitamins, aids in redistribution of body fat. Choline is another compound that is classified as part of the B-vitamin group and does play a role in the body’s ability to transport fats through the blood. Vitamin B-12 may be given in addition to the MIC shots to boost energy.
