If you’ve heard about this innovative form of vitamin therapy, and are curious about injections and IV drip treatments, call the office today to book a visit, or set up a visit using the online booking page.
Why are vitamins so important?
Vitamins are specific organic compounds that are critical to human life. While your body produces some vitamins, it doesn’t meet the full demand, and there are some vitamins that can only come from external sources.
You can get lots of vitamins from food sources, but reaching your recommended daily intake requires a varied diet rich in many different fruits and vegetables. That can be challenging, especially for those with busy lifestyles.
You can take supplements to boost your vitamin intake, but this approach requires the vitamins to travel through your digestive system. A portion of the supplements could pass through your system completely intact.
The best way to ensure your body has the vitamins it needs to thrive is to deliver those micronutrients directly into your bloodstream.
What are vitamin injections?
Vitamin injections are treatments that deliver carefully formulated vitamins using a needle and syringe. Vitamin B12 and vitamin B complex injections are popular options, largely because vitamin B12 deficiency is a well-documented fact in the American population.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that also contains a mineral called cobalt. You need this vitamin for various brain functions, as well as the production of red blood cells and DNA.
The only way to get vitamin B12 from food sources is to consume animal products. An estimated 90% of men and women who are vegetarian or vegan are deficient in vitamin B12.
Getting this essential nutrient through injections can help prevent fatigue, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, insomnia, and much more. Many people incorporate these vitamin injections into their ongoing health routine.
What is IV vitamin therapy?
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy delivers vitamins and other micronutrients directly into your bloodstream using an IV drip. The process is similar to having an IV placed into your vein in a hospital or other treatment setting or like what happens when you give blood.
Once the IV is in place, your Freya’s Lair Medical Spa practitioner adds a customized blend of nutrients into the saline solution. Some of the nutrients your therapy might include are:
- Vitamin C
- B vitamins
Your practitioner can customize your IV vitamin therapy to suit your specific needs. An added benefit of this form of vitamin therapy is the immediate hydration boost that comes with each treatment.
