Feel like you’re short on time? 

You’re not alone – as things continue to wind back up (and the holidays inch closer), many of us find we don’t have the time to really give ourselves the attention we deserve. Whether it’s your career or other obligations, it can be too easy to skip on that workout, that spa session, or that detox method because we’re busy doing something else. 

Enter vitamin injections. No longer only for people with vitamin deficiencies, even perfectly healthy people can reap benefits from a quick jab, supplementing their diets with beneficial vitamins, amino acids, and other critical building blocks of a healthier, happier life. 

Whether you’re looking for a pick-me-up, a way to build muscles naturally, or simply a way to look better, there’s an injection for you. 

Here’s five reasons to roll up your sleeves: 

You Need A Boost 

Vitamins do a lot of things in our bodies, one of which is making sure we have enough energy to get through the day. If you’ve been feeling sluggish, you might have a vitamin deficiency. A vitamin injection before a busy week (or a vacation where you’re going to be active) is the perfect thing to kick you into high gear. 

Vitamin B12 is especially good for this – a B12 injection will kick in between 48 to 72 hours after the shot.

You’re Looking To See A Little Less Of Yourself 

Trying to shed a few pounds before the holiday season? Vitamin injections help here, too – your metabolism will get a jump start along with the rest of you. Combine B12 with additional formulas like methionine inositol choline (MIC) or L-carnitine, and your diets and fitness routines will reap even more rewards. 

L-carnitine is a supplement which helps your cells burn fats. MIC, meanwhile, is a combination of fat-burning amino acids often known as a “slim shot”  

You Want To Be Stronger, Faster 

The thousands of different proteins in our bodies are made up of 20 amino acids. Our bodies aren’t able to produce nine of those amino acids, which is why that group is called “essential amino acids.” Traditionally, those amino acids come from the foods we eat. 

Three of those amino acids are the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): isoleucine, leucine, and valine. BCAAs are popularly used to grow muscles, especially when they’re accompanied by other essential amino acids. A BCAA injection can be the thing which supercharges a healthy, muscle-building diet already rich in protein and other foods with essential amino acids. 

You Want To Up Your Detox Game 

Glutathione is an amino acid produced naturally by our livers. It fills a huge variety of helpful roles in our bodies, from repairing and building tissues, making proteins our bodies need, and helping our immune systems work. Unfortunately, we tend to produce less glutathione as we age, and the loss starts early – around age 40. 

There’s a reason glutathione is often called the “master” antioxidant: by helping to recycle vitamin C and E, glutathione is key in fighting the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are basically unstable atoms which bond with other atoms or molecules in the body, resulting in oxidative stress. 

Oxidative stress damages the cells in our bodies, which causes diseases like Alzheimer’s, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. This stress also causes the appearances of aging, like gray hair and wrinkles. 

Glutathione injections can help slow aging, help fight off the harmful effects of free radicals, and can assist in the detox process.

You Want To Bounce Back More Quickly 

If you’ve been feeling like your workout has really been working YOU out, consider a vitamin injection of folic acid, B complex, and magnesium. Why? 

  • Folic acid is a form of vitamin B9 and has been used to treat pregnancy complications, stroke, mood disorders like depression and more. It also helps the body make healthy red blood cells. 
  • B complex is a combination of eight B vitamins, B complex helps the body in a vast number of ways, including overall cell health, appetite & digestion, and muscle tone. 
  • Magnesium is a mineral found throughout the body, in food, and in supplements. It plays roles in nerve function, blood pressure, and muscle function among many others. For workouts, magnesium blocks calcium uptake, meaning it helps your muscles relax after workouts. 

Combined, this combo will help you recover more quickly from workouts and keep you at the top of your game. 

You Want To Be Good To You 

Feeling a little older? After the past couple of years, nobody could blame you. Maybe you’re unhappy with how your skin feels – and creams haven’t helped. Or maybe you’re worried about how your hair looks or are tired of chipped nails. 

Enter Biotin – a name for vitamin B7. Biotin seems to have real benefits for our appearance, including: 

  • Hair: Biotin seems to strengthen, thicken, and help hair growth. 
  • Nails: A study from Switzerland showed biotin supplements strengthened brittle fingernails. 
  • Skin: Biotin helps the body produce fatty acids which help our skin keep a clear complexion by producing new skin cells and helping oil glands work properly. 

Combined with the age-fighting qualities of glutathione, an injection combining both is a quick, efficient, and effective way to work in some self-care during a busy schedule.
