Vitamin Supplements ingested orally can take weeks, even months, to have an impact on your health – and much of the dose is lost when it is converted in the gut. However, intramuscular vitamin injections have a much more immediate impact – some patients report feeling the effects right away. And because the vitamins are administered directly into the muscle, bypassing the gut, a much higher percentage of the vitamins can be utilised by the body. Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin D and Vitamin C are available.

Vitamin DAs the main source of Vitamin D is from sunlight synthesising on your skin, our bodies don’t make enough for our needs here in the West. In fact, it is thought that a large proportion of the UK population is deficient in Vitamin D. The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) advises that everyone in the UK should supplement daily with 10 micrograms of vitamin D between October and March, with some encouraged to supplement throughout the whole year. However, as explained above, these oral supplements have to navigate the digestive system resulting in little benefit, if any at all. Vitamin D injections offer a better alternative and can give an immediate boost for your health, and could be suitable if you are feeling run down, have a chronic health condition, gut problems, or simply aren’t getting enough vitamin D because of the time of year, your lifestyle and/or diet. So, if you suffer from any of the following a 3 monthly jab can help.
|SAD (seasonal affective disorder)
|Pale skin and dark circles
|Weak bones and teeth
|Frequent coughs and colds
As with the other Intramuscular injections these Vitamin C injections are delivered straight into the muscle bypassing the gut meaning the Vitamin boost is readily available for your body to use.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant protecting your cells and strengthening your body’s natural defence. The process of aging is oxidation. If you think of a nice shiny piece of metal left outside to become rusty this is oxidation. We need to fight this (aging) by eating as many ANTI-oxidants as possible.
Years ago before fierce farming practices were introduced with chemicals used on produce, the crops were grown with natural antioxidants to protect them from harm from the climate or insects. Since the spraying has been introduced it diminishes the antioxidant properties of the produce so we are not getting the levels we used to. Also, the crop is picked and stored in giant cold containers for what can be months at a time with the nutritional and antioxidant content diminishing every single day.
The body cannot store Vitamin C and as its water soluble, meaning its hard to keep vital stores topped up. Plus in these days of pollution, processed food, stress and alcohol we are not getting or storing the level of antioxidants we used to. So, in addition to helping with healing and a boost to the immune system, this vitamin fights ageing and increases collagen reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it also brightens the skin and fights pigmentation. I therefore consider it the beauty vitamin!
Lots of cosmetic companies are promoting skin care with Vitamin C that sits on the surface and is not clinically proven, whereas a quick monthly shot of this straight into the muscle will see benefits that supplements and skincare cannot rival.For best results have one injection every month. £35 per shot.
