HOW VITAMIN INJECTIONS DIFFERENT THAN TAKING AN ORAL SUPPLEMENT?
Many people have trouble with nutrient absorption—from supplements or food—due to the presence of intestinal inflammation, poor gut health, or digestive diseases such as celiac, crohns, or IBS. Injecting nutrients intramuscularly sidesteps this issue by delivering nutrients directly to the cells, feeding your body instantaneously for immediate utilization.
WHERE DO I GET THE VITAMIN INJECTIONS?
Injections are given IM (intramuscular) meaning the solution gets injected into your muscle with a small needle. These are often given in the upper arm or the upper outer quadrant of the gluteal muscle (upper hip region).
DO THE INJECTIONS HURT?
Everyones pain tolerance is different, however, discomfort or pain is felt more when you are dehydrated or tense. The smallest gage needle is used to lessen the pinch, but the biggest key is to stay relaxed when the injection is given. There are different distraction techniques that can be used to help eliminate the anxiety and fear around needles, but the injection itself takes only a few seconds and is a small pinch.
