Your body’s ability to survive is absolute incredibly — especially when it’s placed in extreme situations. It will draw on internal resources to sustain you — but that comes at a cost. Over time, those resources become depleted and your body’s ability to function is severely hampered. This can make it difficult to achieve your goals, like losing weight.

Vitamin injections can help you replenish the key vitamins and minerals your body needs so you can lose unwanted belly fat and keep it off. 

5 Reasons Vitamin Injections Can Help You Lose Weight

1. Vitamin Injections Replenish Deficiencies Can Help Curb Cravings

“Stress eating,” isn’t just an old wise tale. In 2018, Harvard Medical School published an article exploring how stress can cause the adrenal gland to release cortisol. The addition of cortisol can ramp up the body’s cravings, causing you to overeat.

Furthermore, research shows vitamin deficiencies can actually heighten, and sometimes even induce, stress. So when your body is vitamin deficient you can slip further and further into a cycle of stress eating as a form of stress management — causing you to gain weight.

2. Vitamin Injections Can Increase Energy

It’s no secret exercise can play a pivotal role in weight loss. But it’s important to remember that working out draw on your body’s energy stores. It depletes your nutrient levels. And, it can make you sluggish and tired.

The result can often cause you to struggle with making good food choices. Luckily, you can help restore your body’s key nutrients with a vitamin injection. This additional support can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

3. Replenishing Key Vitamins Can Speed Recovery

In addition to helping boost your energy, vitamins can help you recover faster — whether you’ve been working out hard or you had a little too much fun on vacation.

The 2018 review, “Dietary Supplements for Health, Adaption, and Recovery in Athletes” researchers found several different vitamins including Vitamin D, probiotics, and anti-inflammatory supplements could boost a body’s ability to train, recover, and compete.

Whether you’re training for life or training to lose weight, replenishing these depleted stores can help you stay on track with your goals.

4. Vitamin Injections Can Improve Sleep and Promote Weight Loss

Think your mood is the only thing affected by poor sleep? Think again. Lack of sleep can also make it more difficult to lose weight. A research study published in Am J Epidemiol found that women who slept five hours or less were 15% more likely to become obese. 

Further research published by the Annals of Internal Medicine revealed that curtailing sleep can decrease weight loss success by 55%!

And when you’re vitamin deficient, it’s harder than ever to get enough sleep. A 2018 meta-analysis of studies compared vitamin deficiencies and sleep disorders. Researchers found those who were vitamin deficient were at a significantly higher risk of having a sleep disorder.

5. Vitamin Injections Can Boost Your Immune System

Losing weight can be great for your overall health and wellbeing. Research shows that ultimately even just a modest amount of fat loss can reverse many of the damaging changes often seen in the immune cells of obese individuals.

However, losing weight often means restricting calories. In a 2016 research study that looked at the up- and downside of calorie restriction, researchers found that the reduced caloric intake leads to a weakened immune system. One of the biggest issues of a decreased diet on your immune system is that it often means a decrease in the key vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive and recover.

Vitamin injections allow you to replenish these stores without the heavy calorie load. This means you can get the immune boost you need without consuming the calories you’re trying to avoid.
