What is Vitamin B12?
Also known as the “energy vitamin,” B12 is most commonly found in meat, fish and dairy products. It is essential for the functionality and proper development of the brain, nerves, blood cells and other parts of the body.
Getting adequate amounts of Vitamin B12 has several benefits to the body, including:
- Improving mood
- Increasing concentration
- Reducing fatigue
- Serving as a natural diuretic
- Helping to suppress the appetite
- Boosting the immune system
- Slowing down the signs of aging
The benefits of B12 are also increasingly being used in the medical field and have shown promise in helping to treat several conditions, such as anemia and other blood deficiencies. Although it is available in various forms, it is better absorbed into the body as an injectable.
While Vitamin B12 is often manufactured for home use, it should always be administered by a licensed professional in order to get the exact dosage and benefits that your body needs.
During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be made for you to determine the extent and duration of your injections. In most cases, the injections will need to be performed on a regular basis in order to maintain the amount of B12 in your body.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Slight bruising or swelling may occur at injection sites but will subside shortly after treatment. Vitamin B12 injections have a proven safety profile, but individuals who have abnormal red blood cells, Leber’s disease, an allergy to cobalt or who have had a coronary stent placed should seek alternative forms of treatment. Vitamin B12 is also safe for women who are pregnant, but specific dosages may apply.
Am I a Good Candidate for B12 Injections?
Prior to treatment, you should also let our medical team know if you are experiencing any of the following:
