Vitamins may be the last thing on your mind when you think about weight loss. But your body needs enough nutrients to keep all of your systems in peak performance, including your metabolism.
Terry L. Franklin, MD, knows vitamin injections are one of the fastest ways to improve your overall health and vitality. But they can give you an added edge when it comes to weight loss, too. That’s why Dr. Franklin has a vitamin Shot Bar at his medical practice in Monterey, California.
If you need some support reaching a healthy weight, here’s how vitamin injections can help.
Vitamin injections and your body
We know what you’re thinking. You take a daily multivitamin, so isn’t that enough? Actually, vitamin injections offer numerous advantages over oral options.
Vitamin injections deliver liquid nutrients directly into your bloodstream instead of passing through your digestive tract. This approach ensures the nutrients quickly get to the cells that need them most. That’s what gives them an edge when it comes to boosting your metabolism.
Your body requires good nutrition to function properly, and that goes for your metabolism as well. B vitamins, and B-12 in particular, play a significant role in how your body burns fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
B vitamins also support:
- Energy levels
- Healthy appetite
- Good digestion
- Muscle tone
- Cholesterol and hormone production
- Cardiovascular health
- Good eyesight and brain function
- Cell health
- The growth of red blood cells
- Infection prevention
While you can get many B vitamins from different food sources, you only find vitamin B-12 in animal products. But you can also look for B-12 fortified foods, like breakfast cereals and plant-based milks, or you can supplement your body with vitamin injections.
The benefits of vitamin injections for weight loss
Dr. Franklin offers a large selection of vitamin injections at his Shot Bar in downtown Monterey, including pre-formulated treatments to help with specific issues, like weight loss. His “fat burner” formula contains:
- Vitamin B-12
- MIC (methionine, inositol, and choline)
Each of these ingredients helps support the weight loss process by burning fat and metabolizing nutrients more efficiently. Plus, they can boost your energy levels, which also helps the weight loss process.
You can enhance your vitamin injections with other nutrients or homeopathic medicines — like vitamin C, magnesium, taurine, or carnitine ——to improve other aspects of your overall health.
Dr. Franklin can make personalized recommendations on the best vitamin injections to help you achieve the optimal benefits from your treatment plan. Vitamin therapy requires regular injections until you reach your ideal weight.
When used in combination with an exercise program and healthy diet, vitamin injections can give you an edge shedding those excess pounds.
