What are Vitamin Injections?

Vitamin injections enable direct delivery of key nutritional supplements including vitamins or antioxidants directly into the body through the veins, where they can be rapidly absorbed and delivered through the venous system.

Vitamin injections are a very quick and efficient method of addressing deficiencies. Some vitamins are very difficult to get through diet and supplements are not always readily absorbed by the body. Having an injection means that the vitamin is delivered straight into the blood stream.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 or folate deficiency anaemia can cause a wide range of symptoms. These usually develop gradually, but can worsen if the condition goes untreated.

Anaemia is where you have fewer red blood cells than normal or you have an abnormally low amount of a substance called haemoglobin in each red blood cell.

Some of these symptoms can also happen in people who have a vitamin B12 deficiency but have not developed anaemia.

Symptoms of Anaemia

  • Extreme tiredness
  • Lack of energy
  • Breathlessness
  • Feeling Faint
  • Headaches
  • Pale Skin
  • Noticeable heartbeats
  • Tinnitus
  • Loss of appetite

Symptoms of B12 Deficiency

  • A pale yellow tinge to skin
  • A sore and red tongue
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Pins and needles
  • Disturbed vision
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • A decline in mental abilities

You could experience these symptoms even if your blood tests for deficiencies are normal.

Pernicious anemia (PA) is megaloblastic anemia resulting from a deficiency of cobalamin (vitamin B12), which in turn is caused by a lack of intrinsic factor (IF). Intrinsic factor is a glycoprotein that binds cobalamin and thereby enables its absorption in the terminal ileum. Pernicious anemia is often described as an autoimmune disorder due to the findings of gastric autoantibodies directed against both IF and parietal cells and the increased frequency of other autoimmune diseases seen in patients with pernicious anemia. 

Symptoms of Folate Deficiency

  • Symptoms related to anaemia
  • Reduced sense of taste
  • Diarrhoea
  • Numbness and tingling in feet and hands
  • Muscle weakness
  • Depression

Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.

A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults.

Government advice is that everyone should consider taking a daily vitamin D supplement during the autumn and winter. People at high risk of not getting enough vitamin D, should take a daily supplement throughout the year.

From about late March/early April to the end of September, most people should be able to make all the vitamin D they need from sunlight. The body creates vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin when outdoors. But between October and early March we do not make enough vitamin D from sunlight.

People at risk of vitamin D deficiency

Some people will not make enough vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure.

It is recommended that adults and children over 4 take a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year if they:

  • are not often outdoors – for example, if they’re frail or housebound
  • are in an institution like a care home
  • usually wear clothes that cover up most of their skin when outdoors
  • have dark skin – for example having an African, African-Caribbean or south Asian background

Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has several important functions.

These include:

  • helping to protect cells and keeping them healthy
  • maintaining healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage
  • helping with wound healing

Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant and helps to protect the body. It is vital for healthy skin, blood vessels, bones, and cartilage. It also promotes and aids in healing.

Not getting enough Vitamin C can leave you feeling sluggish, run-down, prone to frequent bouts of illness, and looking tired.

Benefits of Vitamin C Injections

  • Absorbed better than oral supplements
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Improves the look and quality of the skin
  • More gentle on sensitive stomachs
  • Boosts the immune system
