If you have noticed that you consistently experience lows throughout the day, and perhaps this has been a theme for quite a while, it could be a sign of vitamin deficiency. This a condition that impedes the body’s ability to function properly. It should be noted that vitamin deficiencies tend to occur over a very long period of time; therefore, you may not be aware that you are vitamin deprived until the symptoms become very apparent. So what are the symptoms of vitamin deficiency, exactly? They include:
- Shortness of breath
- Weight loss
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of equilibrium
- Irregular heartbeats
- Tingling in hands or feet
This is not an all-encompassing list of symptoms as there are several; it is, however, some of the more commonly reported symptoms. Vitamin deficiency can be the byproduct of a poor diet and, in some cases, blood diseases. If you have experienced prolonged fatigue or any of the symptoms detailed in this article, vitamin injections may be the solution to your problems. You’re probably wondering if injectable vitamins are superior to oral vitamins. If that is the case, the remainder of this article will detail what you can expect from vitamin injections.
Better Absorption and Increased Energy
In most case, when individuals report feeling energy deprived, a lack of vitamin B12 is usually the culprit. After all, vitamin B12 is essential when it comes to helping the body build energy to sustain daily activity. And although oral vitamins are great, as we age and our stomach acid decreases, it becomes increasingly difficult to break down certain vitamins. Vitamin injections have been proven to be effective at ensuring that the body receives the critical vitamins that it needs.
Because the vitamins are injected into the body, they are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, unlike oral vitamins that have to work their way through your digestive tract. And as an added bonus, patients do not have to worry about the body treating the vitamins like waste and removing them from the body, which can sometimes occur through the body’s normal digestive process. Additionally, the benefits of injectable vitamins can be felt almost immediately. In fact, many patients have reported feeling a boost of energy within minutes of receiving their injections.
Folate and Vitamin C Deficiency
Although a great deal of time has been spent on B12, folate and vitamin C deficiencies can cause problems as well. Similar to B12, vitamin C and folate (vitamin B9) can be administered through injections. So who is more likely to experience these types of deficiencies? When it comes to folate deficiency, pregnant women and women who breastfeed their newborns need more folate than their body can readily produce, and therefore, are more likely to experience folate deficiency. Vitamin C is typically the result of either smoking or the body’s inability to absorb the vitamin from foods and can affect men and women, alike.
