If your busy schedule has run you completely ragged, you’re not alone. In a perfect world, you’d be eating an ideal diet, and you’d be getting to the gym every day. To be sure, diet and exercise are essential parts of a healthy lifestyle. But good nutrition is also key. If you don’t mind a little pinch, vitamin shots and IV drips are a great way to boost your body’s natural health.
Why would you do this? The short answer is that vitamin injections can improve your body’s natural healing, boost immune response, and promote your energy level and overall well-being.
If you’ve only just heard of vitamin shots, you’re not alone. While vitamin injections have been around for decades, they’ve only been widely-known for about 10 years.
Why Take Vitamins Intravenously?
The importance of vitamins in our diets has been understood for decades. However, exactly how to take those vitamins is a bit less well-established. For instance, oral supplements can vary significantly in their effectiveness. What time of day did you take them? Did you take them with or without food? Was it a capsule or a pill? All of these factors can affect how readily the vitamin absorbs through your stomach.
To make things more confusing, different vitamins will absorb better under different circumstances, which poses a particular challenge if you’re taking a multivitamin.
By injecting vitamins into a vein or muscle, you circumvent the digestive system altogether. This makes them more readily available to your body. The result is that you need a lower dosage than you would with a pill. Not only that, but you typically only need an injection once a week, rather than taking a vitamin every day.
