Injectable supplements have become more popular because of the ease of administration thru home self-administration kits. At Integrated Health Products we offer several injectable products to aid in optimizing your health and boosting performance.
Supplements have been the mainstay of replenishing the body’s nutritional requirements for many years. It is often difficult to obtain all necessary elements from diet alone. When taken orally, they are first broken down in your mouth by your teeth and/or digestive enzymes. The process continues as food travels to the stomach and then the first part of the intestine where most of the remainder of digestion occurs. All of these intricate processes have to function properly to obtain the most out of what you eat or drink. In many cases, these steps are broken, altered or diverted allowing the products to be lost. Even with the best of digestive processes, oral ingestion as compare to injection directly into muscle or fat can be significantly reduced resulting in a lot of money spent and little results.
IV infusions, intramuscular (IM) and subcutaneous (SQ) injections can offer a means of obtaining the body’s basic requirements and providing a better means of extra nutrients. With IV infusions 100% of the supplement is absorbed into the blood-stream with a large portion then being used by the body. IM injections and SQ injections are absorbed to a lesser degree than IV therapy but they can be significantly better than oral pills, powders or liquids. Dosage amount is typically increased to adjust of lower absorption with oral medication. Other alternatives are also available such as creams, gels, and transdermal. Pellets, nasal prays and sublinqual now offer an comparable alternative to IM and SQ and depending on medication.
