Supplements Q & A

What are supplements?

Supplements, also referred to as dietary supplements, include the various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbal products you may take to support or improve your health. You can find these supplements at many different stores, including your grocery store and pharmacy. But you may not know what type of supplement you need or the amount to take.

Plus, the supplements sold on the shelves of your local grocery store may not contain exactly what’s written on the back of the bottle. Dedicated to helping you always feel your best, Dr. Carson uses medical-grade supplements at her weight loss clinic to ensure you get exactly what you need. 

How do I know if I need supplements?

Dr. Carson determines if you would benefit from supplements during your initial weight loss consultation. Nutritional deficiencies are common in those who struggle with their weight, which may impair your weight loss efforts. She may recommend blood work to assess your nutrient status, so she can design a supplement plan that specifically addresses your nutritional deficiencies.

She may also suggest supplements to help ensure your body gets all the nutrients needed while you follow her medically supervised weight loss program. 

What supplements can help my weight loss?

In addition to supplements to replenish nutrient deficiencies, Dr. Carson may also add specific supplements to your weight loss plan that may help support your weight loss efforts. This may include:

Vitamin B12 injections

Vitamin B12 is one of the essential B vitamins that your body uses to make red blood cells and DNA. It’s also needed to support normal neurological function.

Vitamin B12 injections are also often used as a tool to help with weight loss. The B vitamin boosts your energy levels and may stimulate your body’s natural fat-burning powers. Dr. Carson may suggest adding the injections to help you drop the weight and keep it off. 

Lean tea

Dr. Carson or your LeanMD mentor may also suggest adding Lean Tea to your supplement routine. Primarily made up of green tea extract, Lean Tea is a thermogenic agent that may help increase your metabolism to help your body burn calories more efficiently.
