Winter can be a drag. Once we get past all of the fun holidays, it can feel like we’re stuck muddling through dark and cold days for ages, and we just feel drained. But what if there was a way you could naturally boost your energy? Vitamin shots are a great way to help enhance your energy, immune system, and mood to keep you healthy all year round. Plus, vitamin shots can do even more for your body, too! Keep reading to learn about different types of vitamin shots and their unique benefits.
What is a vitamin shot?
A vitamin shot is an injection that contains a concentrated dose of vitamins. At Mint & Needle, we offer specific vitamins and vitamin/mineral blends to help treat and prevent common ailments, as well as to improve your health in specific ways. Shots that we offer include Vitamin D3, B12, Lipo-mino, and Amino Acid Blend. Please keep in mind that our vitamin shots are only administered by medically trained professionals. At Mint & Needle, we evaluate each patient during our initial consultation, and our clinician will ensure it's appropriate for you to get certain shots and how often you can get them.
Best vitamin shot to boost your energy this winter
Your body naturally creates this vitamin when sun rays are absorbed into your skin, which your body converts into Vitamin D. However, because the days are so much shorter during the winter (and typically cloudy), your body is likely to become Vitamin D deficient during the winter months. And Vitamin D is important! It strengthens your bones, lowers cholesterol, supports weight loss, and improves your cognitive health. Also, it supports a strong immune system and helps to ward off colds and flus. Having a healthy amount of Vitamin D also helps to elevate your mood! It’s no surprise that many people’s moods dip during the winter, and this is partially due to the lack of sun and natural creation of Vitamin D in your body. Vitamin D3 shots could help to correct that deficiency, resulting in a better mood and all of the other positive health benefits as well.
Vitamin shots for all year round
- Vitamin B12
Do you experience difficulty thinking and remembering, feel weak and tired, have numbness or tingling in your feet or hands, low appetite, or mood swings? If yes, you may have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in creating red blood cells, nerve cells, and DNA. You can typically get this vitamin naturally through eating meat, eggs, and dairy, so those relying on plant-based diets are especially prone to being Vitamin B12 deficient. Vitamin B12 shots could help you feel stronger and more awake, and help to even out your appetite and mood. They could also help to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and neurological disorders.
If a current goal of yours is weight loss, you may want to consider a Lipo-mino shot. These injections include a blend of Vitamin B12, Inositol, Choline, and Methionine.
As stated just above, the inclusion of Vitamin B12 helps to provide energy. Inositol is a natural sugar, and Choline is a natural nutrient, and both work alongside Vitamin B12 to help metabolize fat. Additionally, methionine is an amino acid that has a significant function in metabolizing energy. Altogether, this blend of vitamins, sugars, and nutrients can be used in accordance with a weight loss plan that includes exercise and a healthy diet to promote fat loss.
- Amino Acid Blend
Are you looking to improve your athletic performance, start an exercise journey, or promote heart health? If yes, then check out our Amino Acid Blend shot. This blend of amino acids work together to boost your performance, metabolic rate, and blood flow, as well as reducing fatigue. Your heart is such an essential part of your body and overall health, so why not nurture it as much as you can?
Ultimately, vitamin shots work to improve your health. Whether you are looking to protect yourself this cold and flu season, to boost your overall health, or to get assistance in your weight loss journey, then consider coming in for a vitamin shot.
