It’s virtually impossible to get all of the vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and other nutrients your body needs through foods alone. You may even take dietary supplements, like multivitamins, to boost your nutrient intake.
The issue with oral supplements is that they have to go through a series of complex digestive processes, beginning with the harsh acidic environment of your stomach. In many cases, nutrients get destroyed during digestion and may never even make it into your bloodstream.
Getting certain nutrients that may be sensitive to digestive functions directly injected into your body bypasses the digestive process entirely. As a result, these essential nutrients go directly into your bloodstream where they’re delivered right where they’re needed.
Not only are vitamin injections beneficial for healthy adults, but they’re also particularly helpful for anyone living with a chronic digestive disease. Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and celiac disease are just some of the digestive conditions that can limit nutrient absorption, making vitamin injections that much more beneficial.
At Looks RN, LLC, Stephanie, who’s a highly experienced registered nurse, sits and talks with you about your health history. She lets you know which type (or types) of vitamin injections may be best for you. Some of the top-requested vitamin injections include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B-12
- Vitamin B complex
- Amino acids, such as methionine, inositol, and choline (MIC shot)
Many vitamin injections from Looks RN, LLC, include multiple types of nutrients, so you only need a single type of injection.
It depends. Because Stephanie is an expert medical practitioner, she lets you know about how often you should be coming into Looks RN, LLC, for your vitamin injections, based on your health and any concerns you may have (like improved energy or weight loss). Generally, it’s recommended to have vitamin injections at least once a week or every other week.
Individual results may vary.
