When to Consider Vitamin Injections

Poor nutrition and vitamin deficiencies are a huge problem in the United States. In fact, about half of American adults have a chronic disease that could have been prevented with better nutrition. Not only does neglecting your vitamin intake raise your risk of developing chronic conditions, but it also causes frustrating and debilitating symptoms you have to live with every day.

Often, your body just needs help restoring its vitamin content. Our vitamin injections administer high concentrations of vitamins directly into your bloodstream, and you leave our office feeling replenished and healthier in a matter of minutes. 

An initial evaluation with Dr. Michael Tachuk at Viva Wellness Medical Group in San Diego, California, helps you decide if vitamin injections are right for you. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering vitamin injections. 

Are you running low on energy?

When you feel sluggish, a vitamin deficiency could be the culprit. Vitamins play a huge role in your body’s ability to regulate its functions efficiently and supply you with enough energy to get through the day. 

For low energy, Dr. Tachuk recommends vitamin injections that include B12, biotin, and L-carnitine.

Do you struggle with aches and pains?

It’s natural to feel achy every now and then. But when those aches creep all over your body and become chronic, you may need the help of vitamin injections. Our injections with vitamin D prove effective in managing fibromyalgia pain and can help you find relief from your chronic pain. They may also make you more resistant to COVID-19.

Do you get sick often? If you’re constantly saddled with the sniffles, a vitamin deficiency may be to blame. In this case, Dr. Tachuk recommends injections filled with vitamin C or glutathione to give your immune system a boost. 

Do you struggle to sleep?

Getting enough sleep is just as important to your overall health as proper nutrition. Research suggests that good levels of vitamins B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12 may help achieve good sleep, as they help regulate the body's level of the amino acid tryptophan, which helps the body produce sleep-inducing melatonin.

When sleep eludes you, our vitamin injections containing magnesium, calcium, and these important B vitamins can help you find normal, restorative sleeping patterns.

Are there gaps in your diet?

Do you chronically skip breakfast? Are you guilty of neglecting vegetables at dinnertime? These gaps in your diet can cause serious vitamin deficiencies and the resulting symptoms. Dr. Tachuk helps you identify which vitamin or combination of vitamins you need most to complete your nutrition, rid your body of toxins, and support your overall health. 

Are you struggling to lose weight?

Hitting a plateau in your weight loss journey can be extremely frustrating. In addition to increasing your time on the treadmill or cutting more calories from your diet, consider getting a vitamin injection. 

The B vitamins and lipotropic vitamins rev up your metabolism and help your body process the food you eat, turning it into energy instead of storing it as fat. Injections are a great way to complement your other weight-loss efforts. 

IV infusions also support your health

Whether you’re looking to completely overhaul your health or simply want to give yourself a healthy boost, our vitamin injections are for you. We also offer IV infusions, which deliver vitamins in even higher concentrations. A popular one is the glutathione IV push, which takes 5 to 10 minutes.

Glutathione is an amino acid that contributes to immune defense. The immune system requires glutathione for two important reasons: It protects host immune cells through its antioxidant mechanism, and it provides the optimal functioning of lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system.

When you’re ready to get more vitamins and feel instantly healthier, call the friendly staff at Viva Wellness Medical Group, or request an appointment online.
