Vitamin booster shots are a quick and effective way to instantly boost your energy, focus, metabolism, immune system and more! When vitamins are administered intramuscularly, via the deltoid or gluteus muscle, it bypasses GI metabolism and provides increased bioavailability. Bioavailability is the degree and rate at which vitamins are absorbed by the body's circulatory system and able to have an active effect.
With a highly concentrated dose, you are receiving up to one week’s worth of vitamins in one booster shot. Intramuscular injections are also absorbed faster because muscle tissue has a greater blood supply than the tissue just under the skin and it can also hold a larger volume. This pales in comparison to taking oral vitamin supplements daily that must first filter through your digestive system and provide only 20-30% absorption. When vitamins are ingested in tablet or capsule form, the contained micronutrients must disintegrate rather quickly and be released into the body within a 20 minute time period for any real efficacy.
Many over the counter supplements contain excipients, binders, fillers, and flow agents that can be used to make the ingredients stick together, mass produce in bulk, or allow formulas to run smoothly through manufacturers’ machines. In turn, all of such factors can contribute to the poor quality and disintegration rates for pills.
Oral vitamin supplement production is not regulated by the FDA where as vitamins compounded for IV (intravenous) and IM (Intramuscular) use are heavily regulated and often require patient specific prescriptions. Only when a pill is deemed harmful by the FDA, after a lengthy process, it is removed from shelves.
