What are IM vitamin injections?

It’s the administration of vitamins via injections into the muscle.  It’s a fast way to deliver medications or vitamins to the body. (Compared to eating or swallowing)

What are the benefits?

  • Better bioavailability of nutrients via bypassing what is called the 1st pass effect and avoiding losing potency or gastrointestinal upset.
  • You can receive nutrients directly to the system and keep maximum efficacy.
  • Assists with the repletion of nutrients.
  • Allow our bodies to absorb 10 times more of the required nutrients.

What is the first-pass effect?

The first-pass effect is a phenomenon where the concentration of the food, supplements, or medications we consume when we eat or swallow is greatly reduced before it reaches the systemic circulation in our bodies.  This process is done by the liver during digestion to filter everything we eat.  This filtration process by the liver reduces the bioavailability of the food, nutrients, or medications we consume.
