Nutritional Injections Q & A
What are nutritional injections?
Although the optimal method for getting the nutrients you need is by eating a well-balanced diet, this isn’t always feasible. Many patients lack some essential nutrients and need to increase their amounts -- and fast. Nutritional injections allow you to get the nutrient or nutrients you need delivered directly into your bloodstream for quick results.
How do I know if I need nutritional injections?
There are many reasons why you may need a nutrient injection. A lack of one or more essential nutrients can result in several symptoms that seem to appear without cause. Many patients who lack nutrients report:
- Foggy memory
- Weight gain
- Low energy
If you have these or other unusual symptoms, Susan offers nutritional testing to identify the nutrients that you’re not getting. Once she identifies your needs, she can give you the appropriate nutritional injection.
What types of nutritional injections can I get?
Susan offers several types of nutritional injections at Rejuvenicity for patients who need a boost. You can get:
B-12 shots are injections of vitamin B. They aim to improve your cognitive functioning and increase your heart health. If you’re deficient in vitamin B, you might feel depressed or have a lack of energy. These and other symptoms can be lessened or alleviated with a B-12 shot.
MIC injections contain methionine, inositol, choline, and several key vitamins. These components work together to improve your metabolism and help you lose weight if you’re already eating a nutritious diet.
Glutathione is a substance produced by your liver. It has several jobs in your body, including building and repairing tissues and boosting your immune system. When injected, it gives your skin a renewed glow and can reduce side effects of chemotherapy for cancer.
Many nutrients are easy to get in your diet alone, but deficiencies can occur and leave you feeling moody or tired. If you’d like to test your nutrient levels and find out if nutrient injections can help, call Rejuvenicity or request an appointment online today.
