Why optimal vitamin D levels are important?
Most people know vitamin D as the vitamin that is created within the body through exposure to the sun, but most of us do not know that most people have vitamin D deficiency and do not obtain enough sunlight a day to keep levels at optimal levels.
Once levels become deficient it is difficult for it to be raised to optimal levels by sunlight alone. Physicians often prescribe high doses of oral vitamin D supplementation weekly ranging from 50,000 units to 100,000 units to increase levels in the body. Some people have difficulty remembering to take their weekly or daily supplementation and their levels never rise to desired levels.
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with;
- Difficulty losing weight
- Migraine headaches
- An increased risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia
- Increased blood sugars
- Increase risk of developing high blood pressure
- Increased risk of breast cancer
- Bone softness
- And more
There are other ways to get optimal vitamin D levels without risking the negative effects of getting too much sun and they include supplements and drips. IV Vitamin D drips and injections offer several benefits over other forms of vitamin D supplementation. For one vitamin D levels are raised much more effectively through the intravenous and intramuscular injection route. This type of therapy also decreases the risk of skin related medical conditions and the discomfort of having to swallow large amounts of food or pills in order to get an adequate amount of vitamin D in the body.
Vitamin D Injection Benefits
One major benefit of vitamin D is its ability to help the body absorb calcium and phosphorus, which plays an important role in helping to keep skin and bones healthy. When injected into the bloodstream through an IV drip, vitamin D maintains a much higher potency and effectiveness than if the nutrient was consumed orally through food or pills. The reason for this is because nutrients like vitamin D that are consumed orally must pass through the stomach and the liver where they go through degradation. By direct injection into the bloodstream, nutrients are introduced at full potency and can be delivered to the parts of the body where they are needed much faster than if those nutrients were swallowed. With so many vitamin D injection benefits that exist, it’s no wonder why physicians recommend IV vitamin therapy for those who suffer from vitamin D deficiency and low vitamin d levels.
Vitamin D IV Injection
Vitamin D IV injection is nothing new - in fact, it has been prescribed to patients since at least the 1970s - but the practice has regained popularity thanks to the media and large number of well known people who have shed light on the importance of therapy and associations with deficiency. With IV vitamin therapy, there’s no need to constantly struggle with low vitamin levels and swallow large amounts of pills, which many people find uncomfortable. Our center is able to boost levels effectively and treat many of the conditions associated with this important vitamin.
IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles
IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles is a full service, upscale, boutique style vitamin clinic offering vitamin D replacement therapy made from some of the best ingredients. Our offices are quiet, modernly designed and make a great location to receive vitamin D injections - but if you prefer, we also offer a concierge house call service available to patients who would rather receive IV vitamin therapy in the comfort and privacy of their own home or office.
How long does IV vitamin D therapy take?
IV vitamin therapy sessions usually take from 20 minutes to 30 minutes while patients are awake for the entire time, which leaves plenty of time to relax or work remotely.
If you’re interested in receiving IV vitamin therapy, you should contact IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles for a consultation. A physician will meet with you to discuss your health needs and history to determine which nutrients should be prescribed for intravenous injection and at what doses.
Depending on your specific health needs and goals, a physician may prescribe vitamin D on its own or as part of a cocktail blend of several nutrients that include vitamin D. We also offer in office laboratory testing to check your levels and assess deficiency.
