In 1844, an Irish inventor and physician by the name of Francis Rynd made the first hollow needle and used it to perform the first-ever injection. A few years later Charles Pravaz and Alexander Wood made the syringe with a hollow needle, and medicine has never looked back.
Injecting medicine directly into the bloodstream can be more effective than ingesting pills or taking the medication in other forms such as absorbing it via the skin. Injections have been used to administer vaccines, and, as a result, well-being has improved. Intravenous (IV) therapy, today, has become a popular treatment for people seeking fast and effective treatments for many different conditions (jet lag, exhaustion, and so on) or even acute illnesses. Today, there are a variety of injections that contribute to overall health and wellness, including B12 injections, iron injections, and fat burning injections.
Vaccines aside, there are several injections one might consider to improve the overall health and wellness of an adult such as vitamin B injections. Having low B12 can result in feeling fatigue or developing anemia. As the human body ages, acid production in the stomach reduces, making it difficult to absorb B12 from foods. Intramuscular shots may be the best solution. B12 is also known to keep your nerves and blood cells healthy, and many people claim that B12 helps with weight loss.
There are several different reasons that one might take iron injections:
- If your diet is deficient in iron
- If you take medication that interferes with the body’s hemoglobin production
- If you have lost significant amounts of blood
- Pregnancy may require iron shots
- Kidney failure
Whatever the reason, you should consult your medical professional since some side effects can occur. It is also important to tell your doctor right away if you experience symptoms such as:
- Muscle, joint, or back pain
- Nausea and/or vomiting
Fat Burning Injections
It may sound too good to be true, but the fact is that there are different types of fat burning injections available. These are used for weight loss, and the different types are easy to find. Lipotropic, for example, is made by choline, methionine, and inositol. Vitamin B12, as mentioned before, is also believed to aid in weight loss. Combined, vitamin and lipotropic provide more effective weight loss.
