Vitamin injections are popular for good reason. UK adults have ‘considerable gaps’ across a range of micronutrients. We are all busier than ever with social causes, work, family, and friends. So eating enough nutritious foods is a challenge. Unfortunately, taking over-the-counter vitamins in tablet form isn’t enough to supplement the shortfall.
The good news is that you can access the vitamins you need by injection. Unlike tablets, vitamin injections bypass the gut so that the body’s cells have direct access to the nutrients they need for optimal functioning.
This exciting, fast, and easy way of getting the nutrients you need means you can have more energy. Your skin and hair can look and feel healthier. Your gut will function better. You may sleep more soundly. There are many benefits. See below for more information on each vitamin injection.

Our bodies don’t naturally produce B12. We get this important vitamin from eating animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs. You don’t have to eat much of any B12 source to get what your body needs. But you may be deficient if you’re vegan or vegetarian, if you have Crohn’s or celiac disease, if you’re over a certain age, or even if you’re taking supplements or medications that interfere with B12 absorption.

Tingling and muscle weakness
