How does Lipotropic Injection assist in weight loss?

*B12 alone does not promote adequate weight loss.
Prescription Appetite Suppressants offered:

Adipex (Phentermine) **most commonly prescribed
** Adipex has been used successfully by obese patients for many years. It is proven to be one of the most efficient and safest appetite suppressants available. Side effects of Adipex include but are not limited to: dry mouth, headache, insomnia, palpitations, restlessness, and tremor.
Adipex works by stopping the hunger signal from leaving your brain, making you eat only as much as you need. Adipex also provides a boost of energy to some patients, which could prove beneficial for exercising purposes.
