What is vitamin D?

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that plays an important role in many of your body’s processes, including building and maintaining healthy bones, supporting your immune system, and promoting calcium absorption in the gut. 

Vitamin D comes from three main sources: food, nutritional supplements, and the sun. Food sources of vitamin D include:

  • Fortified milk
  • Fortified orange juice
  • Fatty fish (like salmon and canned tuna)
  • Egg yolks

Though vitamin D can be found in foods, it’s difficult to get enough through your diet alone. Getting sunshine and taking dietary supplements are often considered more reliable ways to get enough of the vitamin. 

However, if you still have a vitamin D deficiency, you may benefit from vitamin D injections. 

What is a vitamin D injection?

A vitamin D injection involves administering vitamin D using a needle. Every vitamin injection at Altimate Care and Services, LLC, is customizable according to your treatment needs and the results of advanced testing. Your provider can also use a blood test to identify nutrient deficiencies and develop a formula for your therapy. 

While consuming a balanced diet can meet the same nutritional needs, dietary restrictions, digestive problems, and life circumstances can prevent you from getting adequate vitamin D. 

Vitamin D injections are more beneficial than taking oral supplements because the nutrients go into your bloodstream immediately instead of being absorbed, often only partially, in your digestive system. 

How is a vitamin D injection administered?

Vitamin injections are a fast and effective experience. When you come in for vitamin D injections at Altimate Care and Services, LLC, you sit back and relax in a comfortable chair as your provider injects the vitamin directly into a vein in your arm. 

You may notice a difference in how you feel right away or shortly after the treatment. If you want to experience ongoing vitamin injection benefits, you can schedule regular sessions. Your provider may suggest visiting the Altimate Care and Services, LLC, office once every two weeks or so to replenish your vitamins and minerals.
