Vitamin Injections Q & A

What are vitamin injections?

Vitamin injections deliver nutrients directly into your muscles. Once injected, the nutrients slowly enter your bloodstream for maximum potency. Vitamin injections allow you to experience the full effects of nutrients. Within just 24 hours of injection, you may start to experience the effects of a vitamin shot.

How do vitamin injections work?

When you arrive for your vitamin injection, Kathleen and the team deliver the nutrients into an area with healthy muscle and little fat. Fat can block your nutrients from reaching the bloodstream so the team administers the injection deep into the muscle tissue. Most individuals receive vitamin injections in the buttocks or arm. 

The entire treatment takes only a few minutes. You may start to feel the effects of vitamin injections within 24-72 hours of your treatment.

How are vitamin injections different from IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is the safe delivery of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients into your bloodstream. IV therapy consists of a needle attached to a fluid bag. This bag can contain several nutrients to customize your treatment.

By injecting nutrients into your bloodstream, IV therapy works quicker than vitamin injections. It’s also more customizable. However, its effects don’t last as long as intramuscular injections. While the effects of IV therapy can last for days, you may feel the benefits of vitamin injections for several weeks after treatment.

Why are vitamin injections better than oral pills?

While oral supplements often include additives, vitamin injections contain pure forms of nutrients for maximum potency. Most oral pills simply don’t contain high enough doses of nutrients to deliver the quick benefits you crave. In addition, you have to take them daily, while vitamin injections only require a one-time dose.

What are the different types of vitamin injections?

The most popular vitamin injection is a B12 shot. Benefits of vitamin B12 injections include:

  • Increase energy levels
  • Boost metabolism
  • Reduce symptoms of fatigue
  • Prevent anemia
  • Support healthy bones
  • Promote healthy hair, skin, and nails
  • Improve immunity

While B12 shots are the most well-known forms of vitamin injections, Kathleen and the team can also deliver vitamin C, B1, B2, B5, and amino acids into your body intramuscularly.

Vitamin injections allow you to get the nutrients you need without the digestive discomfort of oral supplements. To learn more, call Broadway Healthcare: Kathleen Broderick Logan, FNP, or schedule an appointment online today.
