Low energy, decreased immunity and pain can all be the result of long-term nutrient deficiencies. In order to absorb vitamins and minerals, the body requires certain molecules and processes to be available in the digestive tract. Various factors can decrease the availability of these molecules and processes such as age, medications, disease or poor digestive health. Using a needle and syringe, injection therapies deliver a variety of therapeutic agents directly into the body, bypassing the slow and often inefficient digestive tract and allowing 100% absorption.
One common injection therapeutic is Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential water soluble vitamin required for many processes in the body including energy production (metabolism), red blood cell synthesis and nerve conduction. Those with chronic low energy, nerve-like pain, depression and anxiety and weight gain often are diagnosed with a deficiency in B12, also known as pernicious anemia. Inadequate quantities of B12 are also associated with elevated homocysteine levels, which have been linked to heart disease. Injecting this vitamin into the muscle is a relatively painless way that ensures 100% bioavailability and can dramatically improve energy, reduce pain, reduce the risk of heart attacks, improve mood and aid in weight loss. Vitamin B12 has become associated with good health, and many health insurance plans are now covering Vitamin B12 injections to improve overall health.
If you suffer from low energy, chronic stress, poor digestion, chronic disease, nerve pain or poor immunity, you might benefit from injection therapy.
