What are Vitamin Shots? Why You'll Want One
What Are Vitamin Shots?
Micronutrient injections, also known as vitamin injections, were designed to deliver high dose vitamins that many people are lacking.
In a perfect world, we eat healthy food, digest it properly, assimilate and absorb all of the nutrients that we need, and get those nutrients to the cells that need them. Unfortunately, many of us suffer from micronutrient deficiencies.
There are many reasons for micronutrient deficiencies:
- Lack of vitamins in our food.
- Lack of a well balanced/plant-based diet.
- An increased demand for vitamins due to high stress or excessive physical activity.
- Lack of proper digestion, assimilation and absorption of nutrients.
When you think about it – there really are a ton of opportunities for us to lack one or more nutrients. If the problem is with digestion, even oral supplementation can’t help. You’ll take more and more of the nutrient that your cells need, but your cells never see it.
Enter vitamin injections.
I use vitamin shots with patients in practice to provide the system with high doses of nutrients in an easily absorbable way. The injection is given intramuscularly (into the muscle), completely bypassing the digestive tract. What’s even better about a vitamin injection is that it only takes about 5 minutes of your time. We'll usually do a series of 5 or 10 vitamin shots, depending on what's going on with you - I'm happy to recommend what I think will work.
The Acubalance shot cocktails were formulated by me, Dr. Kali MacIsaac, to address the most common symptoms my patients suffer with. We will consult to see if shots are right for you, and discuss any expected benefits or side effects, before you receive a vitamin shot.
