Our qualified Naturopathic Doctors are excited to help you look and feel your best and one of the tools that we have at CONNECTED is the delivery of important nutrients via intramuscular vitamin injections. Injectable vitamins are one of our most popular treatments. The demand stems from the challenges a lot of us face getting enough nutrients from diet and oral supplements alone.
Why are vitamin injections recommended?
Vitamin injections bypass the digestive tract and ensure optimal absorption and utilization of key vitamins – B12, folate and Vitamin D3. This is particularly useful in those who have health concerns related to malabsorption, those who may not get sufficient amounts of these nutrients in their diet and those who haven’t seen improvement with oral supplementation, as well as those who may just be bad at remembering a daily supplement if it is needed. Vitamin injections are an effective way to increase your energy, strengthen your immune system, and promote weight loss.
Benefits of Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 shots can help to boost energy and metabolism, support healthy weight loss, and encourage healthy sleep and wake patterns.⠀
We typically use methylcobalamin or adenosylcobalamin for our B12 vitamin injections at CONNECTED:
- Methylcobalamin – this active form of B12 works with many enzymes to synthesize amino acids, produce red blood cells, repair DNA, and assists with other physiological processes
- Adenosylcobalamin – another intrinsic/active form of B12, adenosylcobalamin supports cellular metabolism and vascular function
Benefits of Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 is important to encourage healthy bone formation, support mood, and boost the immune system. Low levels of vitamin D have been shown to increase the risk of certain types of cancer. The Framingham Heart Study found that patients with low levels of Vitamin D have a 60% higher risk of heart disease. Additionally, high-dose Vitamin D3 therapy may be effective and safe in the treatment plan for vitiligo and psoriasis patients.
