What is Vitamin B12?

B12 is an essential part of your diet and your body’s well-being. B12 is an essential B vitamin that is most often found naturally in foods like meat, eggs, dairy, and some fortified foods, so it can sometimes be difficult to achieve high enough levels of B12 if you do not regularly eat these foods. Vitamin B12 is most important in helping your circulatory and nervous systems to function smoothly, as well as boosting your brain function through DNA and red blood cell production. It’s also highly beneficial for bone health.

What are the Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections?

Vitamin B12 is so important because it’s what the body uses to make red blood cells, nerves, and DNA and carry out many of its basic functions. Without it, the body does not work as it should. With a regular treatment package, Vitamin B12 injections can help combat certain medical conditions and health concerns like poor mental health, age-related bone and muscle degeneration, reduced brain function/cognitive decline, certain neurological symptoms, and poor eye health. This means it can improve mood, energy, and concentration with a regular regimen. Additionally, it can help boost metabolism and provide greater energy for better weight loss results, as well as help normalize sleep schedules and boost the immune system.

Vitamin B12 comes with a lot of benefits, so our team can help you find the treatment process that works best for you. By administering vitamin B12 via injection, we also completely bypass the digestive system, allowing for better absorption. It’s much more efficient than oral supplements.

Who Should Use Vitamin B12 Injections?

There are groups of people that can especially benefit from regular B12 injections, including vegans and vegetarians who do not normally eat animal foods like meat, egg, or dairy products. Additionally, elderly people can often have trouble achieving enough nutrients, whether because of their diet or health concerns that make it harder to absorb B12 naturally. Finally, certain disorders or health conditions like Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, or other intestinal disorders can mean it is more difficult for the body to absorb B12 from the food you eat. People with long-term health problems like diabetes, osteoporosis, and macular degeneration can also see improvement in their quality of life with B12 injections.

However, most people can benefit from a regular regimen of B12 injections. Vitamin B12 deficiency is extremely common and can be responsible for several mental health and medical concerns. Whether you have specific health conditions, are looking for a way to boost your weight loss results, or simply want to increase your energy, mood, and quality of life, B12 injections can help.

Why Choose Vitamin B12 Injections Over Supplements?

Although it is possible to easily find B12 supplements at pharmacies, they usually come in the form of pills or gummies. For people who have difficulties with digestion and nutrient absorption, it can be difficult to get the full benefit from supplements you buy at the store— especially if they come in much lower doses than you need for your health. Alternatively, injections come with a much higher rate of direct absorption, meaning you will get the benefits immediately and with greater potency. This can even mean you save costs on treatment by ensuring you are getting the benefits for your money versus spending more on supplements that are not as effective.

In some cases, it can be difficult for older people to get the full benefits of supplements due to the inability to swallow pills and digest them properly. Even with the right diet, the elderly can experience difficulty extracting the right nutrients out of the foods they eat. In this case, injections can be a much more direct and necessary way for you to get the nutrients you need.

The side effects of a vitamin B12 injection also are very minimal. You may experience some redness at the injection site, mild discomfort, and itching. While allergic reactions are possible, they are very rare.
