Vitamin B12 Injections

The Energy Vitamin

Commonly referred to as the "energy vitamin", B12 is a vitamin that is vital to your body's metabolic processes. It is often used as a component of healthy weight loss programs -- this is because rather than acting as an artificial external metabolic stimulator, it naturally supports and works with your body's metabolism.

Vitamin B12 in addition to supporting energy pathways in the body, is also used to reduce serum homocysteine levels (which when elevated indicates higher risk of heart disease), and is also involved in nerve health, red blood cell synthesis and for DNA replication and repair.

It can be beneficial for the following conditions:

  1. B12 deficiency
  2. pernicious anemia
  3. depression
  4. anxiety
  5. fatigue
  6. asthma
  7. infertility
  8. neurologic conditions (tinnitus, palsies, Alzheimer's, MS, ALS, tremors)
  9. chronic fatigue syndrome
  10. restless leg syndrome
  11. immune suppression
  12. allergies
  13. decreased concentration
  14. protection from cigarette smoke toxins

Vitamin B12 can be difficult to be absorbed through oral supplementation or when we do not consume enough B12 foods (esp. meat), and even more so when our stomach does not produce enough acid. B12 intramuscular injections are quick and relatively painless, and are absorbed into your bloodstream, thereby by-passing the digestive tract and ensuring good bioavailability.
