Glutathione (GSH) is a powerful antioxidant formed by the liver to prevent oxidative stress by the body. GSH, and other antioxidant compounds when eaten orally are quickly inactivated gut enzymes, but when injected, will bypass the gut and can help detoxify the body and liver, clearing free radical damage and aiding the liver in removing waste by-products from external chemicals.
They act to improve and enhance the body’s own detoxification systems by reducing the burden on the liver and improving liver function, scavenging toxins in the body to prevent free radical damage, and helping to inactivate and remove toxic metabolites from the body. Some medical issues that may benefit from Vitamin Injection Therapy include:
- Chronic use of certain medication
- Chronic use of NSAID pain medication
- Elevated liver enzymes
- Fatty liver diseases
- Liver cirrhosis
Digestive and dietary problems
Those with digestive problems such as inflammatory bowel diseases or IBS may have difficulty with nutrient absorption, and be unable to effectively absorb any supplements or nutrients from their diet. Additionally, those with dietary restrictions such as vegans or those with leaky gut may have issues maintaining a balanced diet as they will avoid certain food groups.
Vitamin Injection Therapy helps to effectively bypass both these problems, and deliver highly active forms of nutrients directly to the bloodstream. Digestive and dietary problems are best treated with the concomitant use of a proper dietary program. Some digestive and dietary problems that may benefit from Vitamin Injection Therapy include:

What is Vitamin Injection Therapy?
Dr. Yeung works with pharmacies and labs to customize mixtures of injectable vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and other therapeutic substances. The injections (either intramuscular or subcutaneous) can be prescribed by Dr. Yeung for your personal use either in the office, or yourself at home.
Your vitamin injection will be customized for your particular medical concern(s) based on your complete blood work, medications or supplements you may currently be taking, current diet/lifestyle, and other medically relevant factors.
Are they safe? Do they hurt?
Your safety will be paramount when compounding your injection. Like any medical treatment, your specific case will need to be assessed thoroughly, before your injection can be customized and prescribed by Dr. Yeung.
Many people barely feel the injections, and others that do feel some discomfort often report the sensation passes within a few minutes. The injectables are formulated to reduce pain and irritation, without the use of any anaesthetic or numbing agents.
What substances are used in the injections?
They are composed of pure vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutraceuticals. The substances used in the injections do not contain any pharmaceutical medication, nor contain any preservatives, anaesthetics, or numbing agents.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
- Blood work. If available and convenient, a copy of all recent blood work from your family physician is acceptable. Otherwise, blood work can be run in your first appointment as part of the initial appointment.
- Medications and supplements. Have a list of current medications and supplements ready. You can take pictures of the supplements and ingredient lists.
