Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D Injections at 4Ever Young Anti-aging Solutions in Wellington

You probably heard over and over growing up that you should take your vitamins. Doesn’t everyone remember Flintstones vitamins? Vitamins were a lot simpler when you were a kid. As you age, however, it becomes harder and harder for your body to absorb the right amount of vitamins and nutrients it needs to function well. That’s where vitamin injections from 4Ever Young Anti-aging Solutions can help!

What Are Vitamin Injections?

Vitamin injections are a quick, effective way to get the energy, immunity, or overall health boost you need to feel better.

Vitamin Injections at 4Ever Young Anti-aging Solutions

4Ever Young Anti-aging Solutions offers a variety of vitamin injections, including:
  • Vitamin B12
  • B-complex vitamins
  • Fat burning accelerator injections
  • Vitamin D3
  • Amino blend
Each injection is designed for a specific treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Two of our most common IV vitamin infusions are vitamin D (in the form of vitamin D3) and vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin for a variety of functions in your body, such as:
  • Red blood cell formation
  • Nerve function
  • DNA production
  • Cell metabolism
Your body doesn’t make B12 itself, which is why you have to supplement it. You also have to consume B12 regularly because your body doesn’t hold onto B12 for a long time. Most people can get vitamin B12 through foods like eggs, dairy products, meat, fish, and poultry. However, some people need to supplement vitamin B12, such as people on plant-based diets. Older folks also frequently need vitamin B12 supplements since it’s harder to absorb B12 as you age.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency

When you’re deficient in vitamin B12, you may feel tired, depressed, or overall drained. But B12 deficiency goes beyond just how you feel: it can also have detrimental health effects, including atrophic gastritis, anemia, small intestine disease, and immune system disorders.

Vitamin B12 Injection 

Vitamin B12 injection can help add or supplement B12 in your body. Some of the improvements you may notice after treatment include:
  • Improved mood
  • Decreased symptoms of depression
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Higher, more sustained energy levels
4Ever Young Anti-aging Solutions is happy to offer vitamin B12 injections to patients in Wellington, FL, and the surrounding areas.

Vitamin D

Unlike vitamin B12, vitamin D is produced in your body. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, your body responds by producing vitamin D. Vitamin D isn’t technically a vitamin; it’s a fat-soluble hormone. Fat-soluble hormones work by entering your cells and diffusing across the plasma membranes to bind with your DNA. This helps affect the long-term structure and overall function of your cells. Some foods naturally contain vitamin D, such as egg yolks, fish, fish liver oils, dairy, and grain products. Just like with vitamin B12, people who consume a primarily plant-based diet can face vitamin D deficiencies. Vitamin D is an essential part of having strong bones because it plays a role in helping your body use calcium.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a lot of severe health issues, including:
  • Rickets, a disease that causes softening of the bones
  • Increased risk of cardiovascular disease 
  • Decreased cognitive functioning in older adults
  • Pediatric severe asthma
  • Certain forms of cancer
New research has also indicated that vitamin D can help prevent or treat both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and multiple sclerosis.

Why Are You Vitamin D Deficient?

You might think that it’d be hard to be vitamin D deficient since your body creates it in response to the sun. But actually, around 41.6% of adults in the United States are deficient. Think about how much more limited your time in the sun is compared to your ancestors. Your ancestors likely spent more time outside working, relaxing, or simply living out of doors versus indoors. Today, the life of the average American is much different, with increasing time spent indoors in front of screens for work and entertainment.

The Dangers of Too Much Sun 

Getting too much sun is just as bad – if not worse – as getting too little. There are almost half a million cases of skin cancer in the United States each year linked to tanning and too much sun exposure.

Vitamin D3 Injection

It’s much safer to supplement additional vitamin D through IV vitamin infusions. With vitamin injections, it’s also easier to quantify how much of a vitamin you’re receiving, whether that vitamin is B12 or D. When you get vitamin injections, your provider can work with you to establish a treatment plan and schedule for how often you should receive injections in order to maintain ideal vitamin levels.

Vitamin D3 Injection Benefits

There are many benefits of vitamin D3 injection therapy beyond just preventing common diseases. Vitamin D3 injections are shown to help grow strong bones by helping to prevent weak and brittle bones and conditions like osteoporosis. Heart health is also boosted by vitamin D. It offers support to your blood vessels, which may help reduce your risks of high blood pressure. Since the brain has many vitamin D receptors, it also supports brain health. Vitamin D3 injections may help you build a strong immune system by helping ward off germs that cause illnesses and inflammation.  And vitamin D contributes to maintaining a healthy weight and reducing your risk of diabetes. Complimenting your healthcare routine with vitamin D3 injections can help support your overall health and wellness regimen.
