Nutrional Shots

Why Nutritional Shots?

Injectable forms of nutrients are a very efficient way to quickly correct national deficiencies and insufficiencies.  Studies show that many nutrients such as magnesium are not as efficiently absorbed by the body when taken orally.  Nutritional intramuscular injections (injection in to the muscle) allow nutrients absorb directly into the body.  Many conditions have been greatly improved by regular intramuscular injections of nutrients such as vitamin B12.  In order to overcome some deficiencies or treat severe symptoms injectable forms of nutrients may be the best initial route to use.

We offer a variety of weekly or daily shots to boost your immune system, weight loss and address nutritional deficiencies.  Some of our weekly shots can be prescribed to administer to yourself at home.

  • Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
    • This is the activated form of vitamin B12 which is better absorbed by the body and assists in detoxification and helps to treat inflammation.
    • Some individuals are impaired in their ability to activate their B vitamins and taking the activated form helps to ensure the effectiveness of the vitamin replenishment.
  • Folic Acid (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate)
    • This is the activated form of folic acid which is better absorbed by the body and assists in detoxification and helps to treat inflammation.
    • Some individuals are impaired in their ability to activate their B vitamins and taking the activated form helps to ensure the effectiveness of the vitamin replenishment.
  • Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) & Folic Acid (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) Combination
    • This is a combination of both activated vitamins.
  • Vitamin B5
    • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) plays a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy.  Vitamin B5 is critical in the production of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands (the small glands that sit on top of the kidneys). This vitamin is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract and helps the body use other vitamins, mostly B2 (riboflavin).
  • Vitamin B6
    • Like vitamin B5, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) also plays a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy.  Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters which are substances that carry signals from one nerve cell to another in our bodies. This vitamin is needed for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin.  Vitamin B6 also helps to control inflammation.
  • MIC Shot (Methionine, Inositol, Choline)
    • This combination boosts energy levels and enhances weight loss.  It also aids in blood sugar and lipid (cholesterol) metabolism.
    • Methionine
      • Methionine helps the body process and to eliminate fat. This essential amino acid is required to produce cysteine and taurine, which help eliminate toxins in the liver.   It also helps to build muscle and also promotes cardiovascular health.
    • Inositol
      • Inositol assists in the transport of fat throughout your body and it also aids the nerve cells in your brain. Inositol is also thought to have enhanced function when administered with choline.
    • Choline
      • Choline functions in the structure of cell membranes (outer surface), protects our livers from accumulating fat and is the precursor molecule for the critical neurotransmitter (brain chemical) acetylcholine. In studies choline has been shown to protect the liver from certain types of damage, and can help reverse damage that has already occurred. Also, it may help lower cholesterol and decrease inflammation.
  • L-Carnitine
    • L-Carnitine is an agent that helps the body turn fat into energy. Your body makes it in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm.  In studies L-carnitine has shown to be of benefit in weight loss, muscle recovery, energy production and cardiovascular disease.
  • Adenosine monophosphate (AMP)
    • Adenosine monophosphate is a chemical which is created as a critical byproduct of our body's effort to create energy from the food we eat.  Adenosine monophosphate improves energy production by stimulating fat cells to use their fat stored in the form of energy.  In studies adenosine monophosphate has shown to aid in pain relief of acute nerve-related pain (also known as post-herpetic neuralgia).  This condition is due to intense pain from Shingles outbreaks.
  • Other shots are available.
  • Some shots may be given alone or in special combinations to help meet your specific needs and goals.
