Vitamin D Shots (IM)
ABOUT VITAMIN D SHOTS
The Vitamin D Shot is a fast-acting means of supplementation for individuals who are deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is available in two forms: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 , the latter being the form we use. Known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, exposure to sunlight produces vitamin D naturally - an essential vitamin for optimal bone health. A deficiency in Vitamin D may lead to various health conditions. For individuals suffering from Vitamin D deficiency, supplementing its intake can be vitally important.
HOW DO VITAMIN D SHOTS WORK?
UVB rays do not trigger as much vitamin D production in darker skin types as they do in lighter skins, meaning that the former type typically requires a greater degree of vitamin D supplementation. Overweight people also require vitamin D in larger quantities in order to attain optimum vitamin D levels. In comparison to oral tablets, the Vitamin D Shot is more potent, fast-acting and effective - particularly in cases where a deficiency in vitamin D exists.
Vitamin D Shots treat many different conditions and can improve athletic performance. Factors that affect your body’s natural vitamin D levels include:
- Exposure to sunlight
- Body mass
- Skin colour
- The use of sunscreen
Vitamin D Shots aftercare
The Vitamin D Shot is a safe treatment. Rarely, however, Vitamin D injections can lead to a number of side effects - the most common of which are stomach discomfort and nausea. Contact your IV/IM practitioner if either of these last for more than two days.
