Vitamin Shots Q & A

What are vitamin shots?

Vitamin shots are injections of essential micronutrients that have different purposes. They are injected into the body, rather than consumed orally as pills or tablets. This allows the body to utilize the nutrients at much higher levels because they are directly absorbed into the system. There are numerous vitamins and other micronutrients available.

Dr. Guy provides the following shots:

    • Basic B12 ($20)

    • Super Energy ($30)

    • Fat Burner ($40)

    • Detox Shot ($40)

    • Zen Shot ($30)

    • Beauty (Skin & Nails) $30

    • Immunity Boost ($40)

    • Glutathione Add-on: ($20) 

Contact Dr. Guy to find out which vitamin shot could be the best option for you. 

Why would I need a vitamin shot?

Vitamin shots are also more effective than taking them orally because the digestive system doesn’t need to break them down first. Also, Dr. Guy can supply a larger amount of the vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream. Therefore, you get a larger amount and more of the nutrients you need!

What conditions could benefit from vitamin shots?

As well as helping when you feel fatigued or have a nutrient deficiency, vitamin shots can also help as part of a treatment program for chronic conditions such as:

  • Anemia

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Allergies

  • Asthma

  • Migraines

  • Colds and flu

  • Fevers

  • Hair Loss

  • Pain

  • Immune Concerns / Viral / Bacterial Infections

Vitamin shots can also boost athletic performance, so if you’re a keen sportsperson, a regular vitamin shot could give you an edge over your competitors. Certain vitamins, like B12, may also boost your metabolism and energy levels, which can help you lose weight if needed.  


How often should I have a vitamin shot?

Dr. Guy recommends getting a vitamin shot every week for a few weeks depending on your health goals. If you’re sick or fatigued, you could get up to three vitamin shots per week.

Each treatment takes around five minutes, with the actual injection being 10 seconds or so. This involves a simple PAINLESS injection of a vitamin solution into your muscles. There’s no downtime and minimal risk from vitamin shots, so they can become a part of your routine without causing any significant disruption.
