Injectable nutrition is an effective way to supplement for vital micronutrients that the body needs to stay healthy. With injections, all of the vitamin or mineral is delivered into the bloodstream, which means you don't lose portions of it to the digestive process.
This makes injections the ideal delivery system for many nutrients, and it can often be more cost-effective, with better and more immediate benefits.
Some popular injectable nutrients that Defy Medical provides access to include:
When it comes to our diet, there are many things we need. These include macronutrients (often called macros) which are healthy carbohydrates, fats, and protein.
To keep your body healthy, you also need micronutrients.
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that the body doesn't create but instead receives through diet and supplementation. They are necessary for your body to function and perform.
Micronutrients come in four main categories:
All these micronutrients are crucial for your body to perform its processes. For example:
Unfortunately, most adult diets do not include enough of the micronutrients we need for optimal wellness. This is where supplementation comes in. Because you body needs these micronutrients for optimal performance, supplantation is the best way to ensure you’re getting the nutrition you need.
It's well-known that unhealthy, high-caloric diets can lead to weight gain. But nutrient deficiencies can affect your body's ability to maintain a healthy weight, as well.
Nutrients keep your body running at an optimized level, which can give you energy and encourage fat burn. It's also important to supplement nutrients if you are eating at a caloric deficit, to make sure your body is still receiving the nutrition it needs.
Some injectable nutrients that are good for fitness goals and fat loss include:
Gaining weight can be the symptom of a larger issue. If you're putting on more weight than you used to (especially around the abdomen), finding it harder to exercise consistently and recover, and failing to see the results you'd like — a hormone imbalance may be the cause.
Hormone imbalance can lead to weight gain, poor body composition, difficulty recovering from physical activity, and a harder time building lean muscle.
For women, changes in estrogen levels affect weight, particularly during menopause and perimenopause. Weight gain in men is commonly caused by a Testosterone deficiency, because Testosterone promotes muscle gain and may suppress increased fat buildup, among other functions. Thyroid disease can also lead to a thyroid hormone imbalance, which can affect metabolism and weight gain.
