Vitamin Injections are a very quick and efficient method of addressing deficiencies. Some vitamins are very difficult to get through diet and supplements are not always readily absorbed by the body. Having an injection means that the vitamin is delivered straight into the blood stream. There are many health and beauty benefits to vitamin injections not just short term, but also long-term benefits to overall health.
Please read below to find out what injections are to offer and how they will benefit you.
Vitamin B12 Injection
Many of us are deficient in key vitamins & minerals which are essential for the daily function and performance of our body. Vitamin B12 is to a human what petrol is to a car.
Vitamin B12 has an extensive list of health benefits, including:
ENERGY: B12 plays an important role in the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose, which is the body's main source of fuel. It helps to maintain sustained energy levels and may even boost athletic performance and endurance.
HEALTHY RED BLOOD CELLS: Low levels of B12 affect the normal division of red blood cells and the replication of DNA which can result in the production of abnormally large cells (macrocytosis)
Enlarged red blood cells lack the essential nutrients they need to do their job — transporting oxygen throughout your body
NERVOUS SYSTEM: B12 promotes normal neurological activity, mental clarity and emotional stability. There is growing evidence which supports the use of B12 in the reduction of age-related brain shrinkage.
HOMOCYSTEINE LEVELS & HEART HEALTH: Vitamin B12 helps to normalise homocysteine levels to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks & strokes.
MEMORY: High homocysteine levels are also closely linked to the progressions of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. B12 can help to reduce these levels and potentially reduce the risk of such brain disorders.
LOSE WEIGHT: B12 boosts the metabolism so increasing levels of this vitamin can be invaluable support if you're trying to lose weight through diet, it's energy-giving benefits will also aid your efforts in the gym.
ALLEVIATE ANXIETY: B12 can help fight mood swings, loss of focus and depression in a number of ways, One way it does this is by synthesising melatonin, dopamine and serotonin, the chemical messengers that influence your moods.
HAIR, SKIN & NAILS: B12 is essential for healthy cell reproduction and so supports the renewal of cells in the hair, skin and nails and therefore the renewal of your skin.
IMPROVED SLEEP: As well as regulating your mood, melatonin also controls your sleeping patterns and if your suffering from a B12 deficiency, a common side effect is being unable to sleep and then feeling tired throughout the day.
ADULTS OVER THE AGE OF 50 ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE LOW LEVELS OF B12 BECAUSE THE AGEING DIGESTIVE SYSTEM LOSES THE ABILITY TO ABSORB B12 DUE TO LACK OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID IN THE STOMACH. THIS STOMACH ACID IS NEEDED TO FREE VITAMIN B12 FROM THE PROTEINS IT IS BOUND TO IN FOODS AND ALLOW THE BODY TO ABSORB IT.
VEGETERIANS ARE UNABLE TO GET B12 FROM THE NATURAL DIET BECAUSE PLANTS CONTAIN NO B12.
Vitamin C Injection
Vitamin C also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient that keeps the body functioning, it's the most powerful antioxidant on the planet.
Found in foods and dietary supplements, it aids in many biological functions, including the synthesis of collagen, the healing of wounds, and the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth.
Vitamin C cannot be manufactured by the body, normally it comes from a healthy diet.
Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, meaning that it can neutralize free radicals that can damage cells at the genetic level. Free radicals are responsible for breaking down our skins collagen resulting in unflattering skin blemishes like wrinkling, dark spots, fine lines and sagging of the skin. If you are going to look after your body on the outside, why wouldn't you do it on the inside?
Vitamin C has been used historically to prevent or treat scurvy and other illnesses associated with Vitamin C deficiency. It has also been found to play a roll in preventing against common colds, cancer, osteoarthritis, age related macular degeneration, asthma & more.
Examples of Vitamin C deficiencies symptoms are, weakness, feeling fatigue, sore arms or legs, gum diseases, easy bleeding, roughness of the skin & poor wound healing.
