It’s not easy keeping up with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but it’s next to impossible when your body isn’t in peak condition.
Unfortunately, even with the healthiest habits, it’s hard to get all of the vitamins and nutrients you need to keep your system humming. And persistent fatigue and sluggishness often indicate you’re falling short.
Dr. Terry L. Franklin knows you can’t function, perform, or feel your best without a healthy foundation, and that starts on a cellular level. While you can buy a daily vitamin at the corner store, vitamin injections and IV therapy offer greater benefits and quicker results.
Are you tired of feeling tired all the time? Here’s how vitamin injections can give you the boost you need.
Why vitamin injections
Dietary supplements are incredibly popular. In fact, nearly 58% of Americans aged 20 and older took some form of nutritional supplement within the past 30 days. And usage only increases with age.
But there’s a more effective and safer way to ensure you get the nutrients you need, and it doesn’t involve over-the-counter products.
Vitamin injections, like those Dr. Franklin offers at his Shot Bar in downtown Monterey, California, deliver the nutrients you need directly into your bloodstream.
Unlike taking a supplement by mouth, this approach skips your gastrointestinal tract. That means you get the nutrients you need where you need them most — your cells — and none get lost to the digestive process.
On top of this efficient and potent delivery system for nutrients, vitamin injections also come with a more personalized approach. Instead of randomly choosing a bottle off a shelf at the drugstore or self-diagnosing yourself online, Dr. Franklin talks with you about your health concerns. Then he runs blood tests to determine the best vitamin formulation for you.
Not only does this provide safer and more cost-effective supplementation, but it also guarantees you have the specific vitamins and nutrients you need for optimal health and wellness.
When to consider vitamin injections
It’s no secret that your body needs the right vitamins and nutrients to function. But recognizing when you could use a little help from vitamin injections may not be obvious.
For many people, a common sign involves fatigue, which is associated with multiple vitamin deficiencies, from vitamin B12 and folic acid to iron and magnesium. Other symptoms of vitamin deficiency include:
- Brain fog or difficulty concentrating
- Brittle nails and hair
- Dandruff or hair loss
- Itchy, flaky skin
- Red or white bumps on the skin
- Cracks in the corners of the mouth
- Sores in the mouth or bleeding gums
- White growths on the eye
- Poor night vision
- Restless leg syndrome
If you’ve been feeling run down or noticed any of these symptoms, it could be time to explore vitamin injections.
What to expect from vitamin injections
Dr. Franklin takes a personalized approach to vitamin treatments at his practice in Monterey, California. He offers a variety of formulas and takes the time to determine which option is best for you.
One of Dr. Franklin’s standard injections contains vitamin B12. This nutrient plays an essential role in DNA and red blood cell formation and the development and function of nerve and brain cells. When you fall short with this nutrient, it often causes fatigue, weakness, and megaloblastic anemia.
Based on your consultation, Dr. Franklin could recommend a pre-formulated vitamin injection or one with additional enhancements, like homeopathic medications, to provide optimal results. He can also offer guidance on additional vitamin shots in the future to keep you feeling and functioning at your best.
