Why IM Injections?

Taking a daily vitamin is often essential for getting the nutrients we need. However, did you know that oral vitamins aren’t as effective as intramuscular vitamins? When injected directly into a muscle, the vitamins are absorbed more readily by the body, boosting the impact.

 

The reason for IM injections is the same as taking an oral vitamin; we’re often deficient in nutrients. Supplements help us enrich our diet, and intramuscular injection of vitamins helps bypass the digestive system and get the nutrients throughout the body more efficiently.

Benefits of IM Injections

Better Absorption
Via the IM injection method, the vitamins and minerals enter the bloodstream sooner because they don’t have to go through the entire digestive system first.

 

Faster Results
Injection deep into the muscles can provide benefits sooner than vitamins taken orally.

 

Increased Bioavailability
Vitamins and minerals injected into the body have improved bioavailability, which means more of the vitamin is used by the body.

 

Precision Dosing
Carefully measured IM injections ensure the body receives the right amount of each vitamin and mineral at every appointment.

How to Choose the Right IM Injections

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme that increases energy and mental clarity. It also supports metabolic function, memory, and the immune system.

Lipotropic methionine inositol choline (Lipo MIC) is a compound that helps lower cholesterol. It can also promote hair growth, decrease blood sugar levels and reduce body mass.

Also known as the active form of B12, Methylated B12 can boost energy levels, reduce inflammation, improve metabolism, and help support sleep. Also promotes healthy-looking skin and hair.

Arginine, ornithine, and citrulline (tri-amino) injections can improve cardiovascular health, circulation, and boost athletic performance. Since amino acids help form protein, this IM injection helps support your body’s building blocks.

FAQs Regarding Semaglutide

Some side effects include discomfort at the injection site, as well as sore muscles. In the event the injection site isn’t properly cleaned, there’s a risk of infection. If you’re allergic to any vitamins or minerals, you could have an allergic reaction to an IM injection.

IM injections are vitamin boosts injected directly into muscles. IV stands for intravenous, which means the vitamin boost is injected into the veins.

While the products used may be the same, the delivery method is different. IM injections take a few moments, whereas an IV injection (also known as a drip or infusion) can take up to an hour.

Since vitamins and minerals have varying half-lives, the timeframe between IM injections varies. Vitamin B12 injections are often recommended every 10 days in the beginning, with doses tapering off after an initiatory period.

Vitamin D shots are recommended up to three times per year. Meet with one of our experts to determine how often you should receive the types of IM injections we offer.
