Why Vitamins Injections?
Vitamin deficiencies are not just a reflection of lifestyle, but also environmental factors. Since we are all biochemically unique, nutrient deficiencies will vary from patient to patient, and do not necessarily correlate with conditions. Many factors beyond diet determine whether nutrient function is adequate. These include stress, absorption, metabolism, genetic predisposition, age, disease conditions, and medications. So what is included in our vitamin injection program?
Immune Enhancing Injections
This is a new category of vitamin injectables in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our compounding pharmacy has created several "blends" of vitamins and mineral which are designed to enhance your immune response. They are oftentimes combined with our other vitamin cocktails and ozone therapy to create a customized vitamin and mineral cocktail to meet your personal health needs.

This formula consists of potent antioxidants and and essential an mineral that assists in supporting the body’s immune response. This includes: Glutathione, Ascorbic Acid and Zinc. This high concentration blend is essential to maintain a healthy immune response.
Ascorbic Acid: a strong antioxidant that contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system.
Zinc: An essential mineral that contributes to immune defense by its role in the development and function of many immune processes. Supplementing with this mineral may help combat infections and aid wound healing.
Glutathione: An amino acid that contributes to immune defense because it is required by the immune system for two important reasons: it protects host immune cells through its antioxidant mechanism and it provides the optimal functioning of lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system.

Vitamin B12 Injections
Vitamin B12 is most effective for the above ailments when given in injection form. When used to help with treating symptoms, most people who receive a Vitamin B12 injection notice more energy increase and a decrease in pain and weakness within the first few days following their injection. Vitamin B12 is important for metabolism, the formation of red blood cells, and the maintenance of the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Vitamin B12 deficiency causes fatigue. Oral B12 supplements are unlikely to obtain the same results as injectable B12, because the body's ability to absorb large amounts is relatively poor. When vitamin B12 is used for therapeutic purposes other than correcting a deficiency, injections are usually necessary to achieve results.
Vitamin B Complex Injections
Vitamin B complex is a group of vitamins that includes thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B-6, folate, B-12, pantothenic acid, biotin and choline. Some of the benefits of vitamin B complex supplements include increased energy, improved or more stable moods, healthier skin, hair and eyes. The vitamins are important for proper nervous system and immune system function. The benefits of vitamin B complex to the elderly include improved memory and mood. No matter what their age, most people notice an improvement in memory and ability to concentrate, as well as a decrease in depressed feelings and irritability. Vitamin B complex is used by the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose, which is then converted by the cells into energy, commonly referred to as metabolism. The symptoms of vitamin B complex deficiency are similar to symptoms of low blood sugar levels. Increased irritability is one of the first symptoms. Those with a sluggish metabolism or problems controlling their weight often benefit from vitamin B complex supplements.
Most people who start taking a vitamin B complex injections notice an increase in energy immediately. If you suffer from dry skin or hair, it may take a few weeks to notice a difference, but you will see an improvement. It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of the vitamin B complex from a typical daily diet. In addition, certain things increase an individual's daily vitamin B complex requirements. Drinking coffee or alcohol increases the need for the B vitamins. Taking birth control pills, sulfa drugs and sleeping medications increase the need for the vitamin B complex group. It is interesting to note that a lack of vitamin B complex in the diet can lead to insomnia, which could lead someone to ask for a sleep aid, which increases the need for the vitamins. Before you reach for a sleeping pill, you may want to look at your diet and whether or not you are getting adequate amounts of the vitamin B complex group.

What Does MIC Stand For? And What Is It?
MIC or the popular name: Lipotropic are a combination of B-12 and essential and non-essential amino acids. Some of which are not produced by the body or not easily obtained from current food sources. MIC or Lipotropic shots injections are used in conjunction with many different diet plans to aid in losing weight or weight-loss programs. Below you will find a listing of the MIC components--and what each does in the body.
Methionine (the M in MIC): it assists in the breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body since it can be converted to cytosine, which is a precursor to glutathione, which is of prime importance in detoxifying the liver.
Inositol (the I in MIC) or B-6: helps to maintain proper electrical energy and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane. It also acts as a lipotropic which converts fats into other useful products. Inositol helps establish healthy cell membranes, which facilitate nerve impulses.
Choline (the C in MIC): has been shown to protect the liver from certain types of damage, and can help reverse damage that has already occurred. Additionally, it may help lower cholesterol and homocysteine levels associated with cardiovascular disease, and may also help protect against some types of cancers.
Enhanced versions of the Lipo B injections have been formulated and are also available at our practice locations. Call today to find out more about the latest Lipo B formulations.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy
Used for decades in hospitals and medical settings, intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, has traditionally aided symptoms from dehydration to nutrient-absorption conditions. In the past few years, IV therapy has increased its presence.
Intravenous therapy helps users feel their best through rehydration…But it’s more than just H2O that brings you to ultimate wellness!
What is Intravenous Therapy?
Intravenous therapy is a treatment that administers fluids and nutrients directly into the vein. The intravenous route is the quickest way that medications and fluids can enter the body, as they are brought straight into circulation. That being said, they can be used by the body almost immediately. When individuals ingest nutrients orally, they typically do not receive all of the benefits effectively. This is due to a variety of reasons — from the inability for the gut to process nutrients properly to the lack of tolerance for high vitamin and mineral dosages. IV therapy eliminates this issue. Intravenous administration allows you to receive the vitamins, minerals and medication you need — quickly and in the total amount required.
Why Should You Use Intravenous Therapy?You can use intravenous therapy to increase your overall wellness, as adequate hydration and nutrient levels are key in achieving maximized health. In addition, IV can also:
* Lift immunity
* Relieve fatigue
* Detoxify the body
* Reduce stress
* Alleviate anxiety
* Promote athletic recovery
* Enhance beauty
* Relieve illness
* Boost metabolism
What Does the Process Look Like?Intravenous therapy is easy and safe. IV treatment is virtually painless, with most patients feeling only a slight initial pinch during IV administration. During the treatment, it’s normal to experience a cooling sensation. No major side effects are associated with intravenous therapy.

As we age, the level of NAD gradually declines, and our IV drip can provide NAD to your cells for use. NAD+ works by repairing cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain, resulting in restoration of a clear mind, balanced mood, and reduction of cravings.
