It’s hard to resist the convenience of vitamins and supplements you buy online or at the grocery store. But these options may not help you eliminate nutritional deficiencies and keep you feeling and functioning at your very best. That’s where vitamin shots can help.
Dr. Terry L. Franklin uses vitamin injections at his private practice in Monterey, California, to help people in his care get back on track fast. Here are five benefits of including vitamin shots in your wellness care strategy.
Better absorption of nutrients
One of the key advantages of vitamin shots over oral supplements involves absorption. That’s because anything you take by mouth has to pass through your digestive system before getting absorbed into your bloodstream. This process reduces the potency of the formula, leaving you with far fewer nutrients reaching the cells that need them most.
Vitamin shots avoid this problem since we inject them directly into your bloodstream. From that point on, they circulate throughout your system immediately, providing your cells with the full dose of nutrients they need to function and thrive.
Corrects nutritional deficiencies
Studies show that over 90% of people have at least one nutritional deficiency. Fortunately, vitamin shots can address that issue.
The most common nutrient deficiencies include:
- Vitamins D, C, A, E, and B12
Vitamin shots can correct these shortfalls more effectively since the body absorbs liquid nutrients better than pills.
Supports numerous health issues
Your body needs the right amount of nutrients to function and thrive. Without them, uncomfortable symptoms and disease can set in.
Fortunately, you can restore balance to your body with vitamin injections and get help with issues, such as:
- Weight loss
- Weakened immune system
- Gastrointestinal function
- Energy and stamina
- Stress and anxiety
Vitamin shots can even support specific problems, like elevated blood sugar levels.
It’s no secret that it’s easy to grab your vitamins when out on an errand or click a button and have them delivered to your home. But that also means you’re getting something mass-produced for the general population, not your individual needs.
When you get vitamin shots at Dr. Franklin’s Shot Bar, you receive an injection formulated specifically for you and your needs. That ensures you get precisely what you need to feel and function at your best.
Dr. Franklin can even suggest adding homeopathic medicines to your injections to help support health conditions.
Finally, choosing vitamin shots over oral supplements comes with expert guidance.
Dr. Franklin’s Shot Bar has standard vitamin injection formulas and those customized on a case-by-case basis. To determine the best vitamin shot for your specific needs, Dr. Franklin reviews your symptoms and orders blood tests to look for the nutritional deficiencies behind them.
Based on your assessment, Dr. Franklin can outline a personalized treatment strategy and monitor your progress throughout. This includes making changes to your vitamin formula and recommendations on the frequency of your visits to the Shot Bar.
