More Energy

We can all use more energy.

For those who are chronically fatigue, or simply want more energy for a big event, Dr. Yen can help by giving you B-12 and MIC injections.

B-12 is a natural vitamin which helps maintain good health and has been shown to be beneficial in reducing stress, improving memory and cardiovascular health, and in maintaining a good body weight. It does this by assisting the body to convert proteins, fats and carbohydrates into energy. The more energy we burn, the less we accumulate fat.

One can take some B12 vitamins orally. However, as we age, we tend to be less efficient in absorbing B12. Injections are better absorbed by the body because they go faster and more directly into the blood stream.

  • No appointments are necessary. Just visit Scandals. Before or after you do your hair, ask to see Dr. Yen to get your shots.
  • There are discount available if you buy a package of 3: the fourth one is free. Feel free to talk to Dr. Yen about the discount.

For people who need more than the B12, Dr. Yen also provides shots which are lipotropic antioxidants.

There are three antioxidants which our body makes, but often insufficient for our aging bodies. They work together and may be called the Associated Lipotropic Antioxidants. Lipotropic means they work on the lipids. Antioxidant means they protect our bodies against the effects of oxidation.

The term “MIC” means Methionine, Inositol and Choline.

Methionine is a sulfur-containing amino acid. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excessive fat buildup in the liver and the body. Patients with a sulfa allergy should inform Dr. Yen and not take this vitamin cocktail.

Inositol is a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It also participates in the action of serotonin.

Choline supports the health of the liver. It helps the processing and excretion of chemical wastes from the body. It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body. It is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic system.

The three ingredients are combined in a vitamin cocktail and one ml will be administered. The shot will be given in the arm intramuscularly with practically no pain because Dr. Yen will be very gentle and the cocktail is completely water-soluble.

  • The MIC can be given independent of, in addition to, before or after the B12 shots. One can also have the MIC without the B12 shots.
  • Dr. Yen also offers a package deal. Buy 3 MIC-shots and get the 4th one free.
  • Feel free to talk to Dr. Yen about your energy levels. Consultation is free.
