Vitamins have many important functions in our bodies. Especially vitamin C and vitamin B12 are important building blocks. Our intestine can only absorb a limited amount of these vitamins and we often do not manage to eat a balance diet on a daily basis. Stress phases, infections, alcohol and smoking can also contribute to a deficiency. As a consequence people often feel fatigued and lethargic, experience concentration difficulties and are prone to infections. But we can actively support your body with tailored vitamin regimens.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that has many important functions in our body: it is an antioxidant and protects our cells from free radicals, it supports our immune system and makes us less prone to infections, it helps to neutralize toxic metabolic products (such as from alcohol), it promotes the absorption of iron and it activates our fatburning capacity. Furthermore, vitamin C strengthens our connective tissue und plays a role in our hormonal balance.
A high-dose vitamin C infusion is beneficial:
- Acute and chronic infections
- To improve personal performance capabilities
- After increased alcohol consumption
- To improve musculo-skeletal pain
- To boost the regeneration after illness
- During chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis
- To reduce cholesterol levels
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in different metabolic processes. It is especially involved in the production of red blood cells, the degradation of certain fatty acids and in the production of neurotransmittors that are essential for the functioning of our nervous system and psychological well-being. Vitamin B12 can only be absorbed through animal products. Vegans, vegetarians, older people and people who suffer from different gut problems are at an increased risk of a deficiency.
Vitamin B12 shots are especially beneficial:
- During acute stress periods
- Feeling of tiredness, fatigue and/or exhaustion
- Difficulty concentrating
- As a supplement treatment for vegetarians and vegans
