The Sunshine Vitamin Injection (IM)

ABOUT THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN INJECTION

The Sunshine Vitamin Injection (Cholecalciferol) is a fast-acting means of supplementation for individuals who are unable to obtain adequate supplementation from fish and/or UV exposure. Available in two forms, exposure to sunlight produces everything we need naturally - although this isn't always the most practical or healthy solution. Vegetarians and vegans may also find it difficult to obtain adequate levels. As an essential vitamin for optimal bone health, deficiencies in the ‘sunshine vitamin' may lead to various health conditions, so for many individuals, supplementing their natural vitamin intake is vitally important.

 

HOW DO SUNSHINE VITAMIN INJECTIONS WORK?

UVB rays do not trigger as much vitamin production in darker skin types as they do in lighter skins, meaning that the former group typically require a greater degree of supplementation. Overweight people also require supplementation in larger quantities in order to attain optimal levels. In comparison to oral tablets, the Sunshine Vitamin Injection is highly potent, fast-acting and ultimately more effective.

Treatment Indications

The Sunshine Vitamin Injection treats many different conditions and can improve athletic performance. Factors that affect your body’s natural levels include:

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Body mass
  • Skin colour
  • The use of sunscreen
  • Diet

Vitamin D Shots aftercare

The Sunshine Vitamin Injection is safe. Rarely, however, injections can lead to a number of side effects - the most common of which are stomach discomfort and nausea. We recommend contacting our IV/IM practitioners if either of these last for more than two days.
