One of the major differences between physician-grade supplements and general or over the counter supplements is the level of government regulation of their manufacture and sale. Physician-grade supplements undergo stringent regulations by the Food and Drug Administration, and the pharmaceuticals undergo testing to monitor their contents, safety and efficacy. Over the counter supplements undergo regulation to ensure they cannot harm the general public, but do not undergo the same stringent regulation with respect to contents and efficacy.
Another major difference between physician-grade and over the counter supplements are their ingredients. Physician grade supplements will often contain a relatively pure sample of active vitamins, minerals and amino acids, allowing doctors to administer a very precise dosage of supplements to meet a patient's needs. Over the counter supplements, on the other hand, may contain a less pure sample of vitamins, and might also contain additives and fillers.
Consuming prescription-quality supplements can prove useful for treating specific diseases, as it provides a dosage of vitamins without additives, which could affect the vitamin's function. For example, physician-grade niacin proves more effective than the over the counter vitamin supplement equivalent in treating high cholesterol, according to a study published in "Post-Graduate Medicine" in 2011.

If you want to stay away from all diseases and avoid getting sick, you must have a strong immune system. In order for you to have a strong, healthy immune system, you must eat healthy, take vitamins, and be active. Still, it can be very difficult with busy schedules to find foods that contain the level of vitamins that are needed to help you remain healthy and have energy throughout the day. You could have a condition like leaky gut syndrome that was caused by a gluten intolerance which is making it very difficult for your body to absorb the needed nutrients from food. Vitamin injections and IV’s are an easy and effective way to receive the essential vitamins your body craves. When taking a multi-vitamin, very few of the vitamins and minerals actually penetrate into the blood and may not have the daily requirements that are needed for one person. Where as, vitamin injections go directly into your blood stream thus absorbing all the nutrients and contain the daily requirements for your body.
Why take injections over pills?
The stomach acids that aid in the natural breakdown of food also breakdown Vitamin pill supplements. The body will only absorb a small amount of the actual vitamin from a pill. In addition, as you get older your body's ability to absorb vitamins through digestion continually decreases. In fact, many adults are unable to absorb vitamins such as B12 into their body at all! Injections provide a direct method of supplying your body with the vitamins.
Can vitamin injections be used as a tonic for wellness or prevention - even if I'm in good health?
Yes. Vitamin injections can be a nice instant boost if you are under stress, if you have been unable to take your vitamins as diligently as you might want, or if are exposed to others who are sick. In fact, vitamin injections are what our doctors and staff use to avoid getting sick when we see so many sick people!
Are vitamin injections safe?
Yes. Vitamin injections have one of the safest track records for injections of any kind. Although they are not right for everyone, most people tolerate them very well. Talk to one of our doctors about the risks and benefits of vitamin injections.
For what conditions might vitamin injections be helpful?
Vitamin injections have been used for over a century. They may be helpful for people with:
- Fatigue and low energy
- Chronic Pain
- Prevention or treatment of cold & flu
- Digestive issues like irritable bowel
- Immune weakness causing chronic infection
- Erectile dysfunction & other poor circulation diseases
- High Blood Pressure
- PMS or other hormonal problems
- Nutritional problems related to gastric bypass surgery
- Malnutrition & Malabsorption
- Reducing cravings when quitting tobacco
How do I know if I would benefit from vitamin injections?
Although most people can benefit from a vitamin injection, a practitioner must prescribe it and a trained staff member must administer it. If you have any of the symptoms listed, or if you just want an extra boost to your health, a vitamin injection might be right for you.
