Many people have heard of vitamin shot injections from articles on celebrities who swear by them and use them religiously. We did a little research about how they benefit the body and if they are worth the sting, monetary wise and literally. Research shows that taking vitamins orally is not always the best way to absorb nutrients because of the many factors such as, time of day, with or without food, or dose amount. It is a highly debatable topic whether you should inject, ingest, or infuse your vitamins. We think there must be something behind it when celebs are lining up for them.
The main benefits behind them are an immune system boost, aids with weight-loss, and increases your energy. Many claim that they feel like a million bucks after getting a vitamin shot because studies show that 90% of people are lacking one or more nutrients. The most common being vitamin D and B12, iron, calcium, vitamins C, E, and A, fiber, and potassium. It is also said that liquid vitamins are also easier for the body to absorb rather than a pill form.
Zsofia Illes, one of our trainers visited Alcheme in Little Italy to see what the hype was all about and see how she felt afterwards. She said that she felt a noticable increase in energy after getting the Alchemist shot, which contains B6, B12, Methionine, Inositol, Choline, and L-Carnitine.
