Can Vitamin Injections Help You Lose Weight?

If you’ve tried dieting and exercise to lose weight but still find those extra pounds hanging on, you’re not alone. About 30% of adults in Florida struggle with their weight. A lack of essential vitamins and minerals could be slowing their weight loss journey — and yours.

Eugene Guerre Jr., MD, and our team at Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers offer help for patients in the Brooksville, Florida, area struggling to lose weight. Our medical weight loss program uses a proven three-step method to help you lose, and keep off, extra pounds.  

We also believe in educating you about how what you put into your body affects your weight loss. Read on for the information you need about vitamin injections and whether they can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Vitamins and your weight

Vitamins play a key role in many of your vital bodily functions. For example, vitamin B12 supports the production of red blood cells. It also helps your nervous system function the way it's supposed to.  

Unfortunately, studies show that as many as 9 out of 10 Americans are deficient in at least one important vitamin or mineral. When it’s low in necessary vitamins, your body begins to crave food to replenish the stores.

Your system interprets your cravings as hunger and can cause you to overeat or eat foods that aren’t healthy for you. This can sabotage your weight, energy stores, and overall health, and even leave you struggling to absorb vitamins in the future. 

Vitamin injections and weight loss

At Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers, we understand how this deficiency affects your body’s ability to function and maintain a healthy weight. As part of our three-part medical weight loss program, we give your body the boost it needs by providing vitamin injections. 

With injections, you receive the vitamins directly into your bloodstream, where they can be absorbed more efficiently. By bypassing the digestive system, you get the full effect of the vitamins, reducing your unhealthy cravings more quickly.

Vitamin injections also help increase your energy levels, making it easier to stay active and follow through on your exercise routine. Vitamin B12, for example, can boost your metabolism and kickstart your energy, helping you shed unwanted pounds. 

Other benefits of vitamin injections include:

Some of our patients also report a reduction in muscle pain and faster muscle recovery.

Medical weight loss for the win

We personalize a weight loss plan for you, taking into account your current and desired weight. We always begin with a medical health evaluation that includes blood work and an evaluation of your cardiovascular health. 

We use a three-phase plan that includes education and help with long-term strategies, vitamin injections and oral multivitamins for optimal results, and fat-burning medications to help melt excess fat. 

Once you reach your goal weight, we continue to help you with meetings to monitor your health and provide ongoing support. With Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers, you’re never alone in the battle to lose weight.
