Vitamin B12 Shot
Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common condition that can affect up to 15% of Americans depending on their age, diet, and ability to absorb nutrients through the gastrointestinal tract. Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak.
If your Vitamin B12 levels are low, we recommend 8-10 Vitamin B12 injections over the first two to three months and then one per month for maintenance after that.
Lipotropic B12 Shot
Also known as the "weight loss injection", this unique injection combines B12 with MIC (Methionine, Inositol, and Choline) to help our body utilize fat, distribute energy, and remove toxins.
- Methionine. This essential amino-acid and antioxidant removes free radicals, burns fat, removes metal deposits, and improves digestion. It can also makes us feel more energetic and build muscle mass.
- Inositol. This lipotropic improves metabolism and helps break down cholesterol. It can also improve your mood and reduce your risk of heart attack.
- Choline. This essential nutrient is needed for proper liver function. Choline produces hormones that improve metabolism rate and removes fat from the liver.
When starting to lose weight, we recommend two Lipotropic B12 Shots per week for the first month and then one (or two) per week based on your needs. Combine with Vitamin B12 Shots to really Be Your Most!
Vitamin D Shot
Vitamin D deficiency is a common condition that affects up to 25-50% of Americans. Vitamin D is found in cells throughout the body and is needed for maintenance of strong bones, immune system function, neuromuscular function, improving mood regulation, protecting the brain against toxic chemicals, and potentially reducing pain.
If your Vitamin D levels are low, we recommend an initial high-dose intramuscular injection followed by a second injection 3 months later. A third injection may be required in another 3-6 months. Some patients may then require 1-2 injections per year to maintain sufficient Vitamin D levels.
What is Vitamin Therapy?
Our bodies need vitamins to function properly and keep us feeling great year after year. In an ideal world, we’d get all the vitamins our bodies need to stay healthy from our food. But in reality, that’s often not the case. Commercial farming practices, GMOs, processed food, additives, and the modern American diet do not deliver all the nutrients and vitamins our bodies need, even for people that work diligently to eat healthy.
Vitamin therapy picks up the slack. Vitamin therapy helps improve the body’s nutrient levels by injecting needed vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream via an IV drip or injections. Vitamin therapy is used to correct common nutritional deficiencies, help relieve problematic health symptoms, burn fat, increase energy, combat fatigue, remove environmental toxins from the body, and improve overall health and wellbeing.
More powerful than your morning vitamin capsule
Every morning, you pour yourself a cup of coffee and pop your favorite daily multivitamin, thinking that’s enough to ward off nutritional deficiencies. But it may not be. Over-the-counter oral vitamin tablets, unfortunately, do not deliver to your body the vitamin and mineral content listed on their labels. While being broken down in your stomach and intestines, around 50% of the vitamin and mineral dosage listed on the label is lost in the digestive tract and is flushed out of your body.
Vitamin therapy shots deliver critical vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream, allowing your body to absorb these nutrients directly into your cells. Especially if you have a condition such as celiac disease, Crohn’s disease or cystic fibrosis, which can limit the amount of vitamins and nutrients your body can absorb through the digestive system, vitamin therapy shots may be the most effective way to stave off nutritional deficiencies and help you maintain optimal health.
Not every health insurance provider covers vitamin therapy shots, but some do. You’ll need to check with your health insurance company to see if vitamin shots are covered. You may be required to show that the shots are medically prescribed and treat a specific health condition in order for your insurance company to cover the cost.
