Do You Need A Prescription For Vitamin Injections?

Do You Need A Prescription For Vitamin Injections

With certain patients who have trouble absorbing vitamins, injections can be more effective than pills. Not only that, this type of injection has gained popularity and availability for its ability to boost energy, mood, and many more. Indeed, injections are available via prescription for those who don’t absorb vitamins well or want to make sure beyond reasonable doubt that they’re getting an ample dose quickly.

How Do Vitamin Injections Work?

Vitamin injections offer direct delivery of nutrients into the tissues of the body, ensuring 100% absorption of the active ingredients. When administering vitamin injections, patients receive the exact dosage of the nutrients prescribed, which are immediately available for utilization by the body.

Once the digestive system absorbs it, oral supplements are heavily metabolized by gastrointestinal tissues and the liver before being released into the systemic circulation. This process, called first-pass metabolism, dramatically reduces the number of active ingredients available to the body.

Here are symptoms that vitamin injections can address:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of energy
  • Nail discoloration
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Hair or skin changes
  • Inflamed or cracked mouth corners
  • Memory loss

What Are the Types of Vitamin Injections?

Each vitamin has its role in the body, and supplements may be helpful depending on the experiences, needs, and natural levels of vitamins. Not all vitamins are typically offered as vitamin injections. Still, the most common are B12, B complex, vitamin D, and vitamin C. 

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 injections are probably the most popular vitamin injection on the market. Generally, people that do not eat many (or any) animal products may feel the most impact from vitamin B12 injections. This is because B12 is mainly found in animal products but can also be found in fortified foods, so those on a vegan or vegetarian diet may be deficient. 

Vitamin B Complex

Vitamin B complex injections include a concoction of various B vitamins. Since each B vitamin offers different roles and benefits to the body, this is an injection that has the opportunity to be personalized. For example, an individual may not need a lot of B12 but may benefit from B1 so that the injection will focus on the B vitamins needed. 

Vitamin D

Vitamin D injections are another popular option for those who want to associate vitamin D without sun exposure. Since fewer people spend adequate time outside, it is common to experience vitamin D deficiency. To counteract the effects of modern life, vitamin D injections may help to fill some of the gaps. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is probably the most well-known since many people associate it with foods like citrus fruits, leafy green vegetables, and berries. Vitamin C injections can be an amazing way to help boost vitamin C levels and support the many roles of vitamin C. One of the most common benefits of vitamin C is its role in immunity and the way it supports the immune system in fighting diseases and other illnesses. 

What Are The Health Benefits Of Vitamin Injections?

Reduces Onset of Fatigue

A 2021 study published in Nutrients found a clear link between B12 supplementation and fighting fatigue. Simply giving the body the nutrients needed can stop the body from feeling tired. 

Slows Down Memory Loss

In a 2016 research study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that aging patients who received extra B12 had less memory loss. Adding B12 and other key nutrients through a vitamin injection can help patients perform memory tasks more efficiently. 

Increases Metabolism

L-Carnitine is a common carnitine found within the body, and the human brain, liver, and kidneys naturally produce this chemical compound. It plays an important role in turning fat into energy. When the body doesn’t have enough L-Carnitine, this imbalance can reduce the metabolic rate. 

An early study examining overweight cats found that L-Carnitine supplementation promoted rapid weight loss. Further studies are needed in humans, but many patients experience a noticeable weight loss benefit from a vitamin injection containing L-Carnitine.

Lowers Risk of Heart Failure

Research suggests that patients at risk for heart failure (HF) experience multiple nutrient deficiencies, including B vitamins. A Cardiovascular Vitamin Injection is a specially crafted cocktail designed to help restore these deficiencies and reduce the risk of HF.

Reduces Stress

Vitamin deficiencies, especially B12, are more than a trendy health concern. They have been shown to have a devastating impact on stress levels. In fact, a deficiency of B12 and its companion B vitamin folate are often associated with depression, dementia, and mental impairment. 

Reduce Anxiety

Additionally, a 2013 Finnish-based study published in BMC Psychiatry revealed a close correlation between a patient’s B12 levels and their ability to deal with depression symptoms, such as anxiety. In short, patients with less-than-ideal B12 levels tended to suffer from higher anxiety levels. 

Improves Weight Loss

A 2017 study published by The Obesity Society revealed a clear link between chronic stress and higher levels of obesity. 

Sleep plays a critical role in the body’s ability to function properly. Getting enough sleep can be challenging when the body lacks key nutrients and minerals.

Promotes a Better Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep can improve our mood. In fact, researchers have found that B complect can effectively treat nocturnal leg cramps. They found evidence to support that an iron deficiency may also contribute to this disorder, further interrupting sleep.

Renew The Youthful Glow

Vitamins, especially B12, play an essential role in skin, hair, and nail health. By giving the body a boost of nutrients like B Complex and Glutathione, it can promote healthier hair, stronger nails, and a rejuvenated complexion. 

Support Unborn Baby

For pregnant moms, sometimes, a prenatal vitamin isn’t enough. A vitamin injection can help give the baby the key vitamins they need quickly and efficiently. 

Help Curb Cravings

Research shows that vitamin deficiencies can heighten — and sometimes even induce — stress. The more stressed a body is, the more cortisol it produces — a chemical that can ramp up the body’s cravings, increasing the likelihood of overeating.

The Bottom Line

Consumers find comfort in vitamin injections due to better absorption since reaching the point where nutritional supplements are becoming requirements due to nutrient deficiencies. Skintuition Medical Aesthetics offers B12 and Lipo B vitamin injections for patients who want maximum vitamin benefits. Why mess with pills at home when a licensed professional can give you the right number of vitamins your body needs and get the benefits right away?
