Vitamin B-12 Injections

The body relies on a variety of vitamins to maintain optimal health, and B-12 is among the most important for weight management. Vitamin B-12 is one of the essential B vitamins that help support a healthy nervous system. B-12 works by converting the food we eat into sugar and other types of fuel that keep the body running smoothly. B-12 is often associated with weight loss because of its ability to boost metabolism and provide lasting energy.

Why Vitamin B-12 Injections?

Vitamin B-12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B-12 also helps prevent certain types of anemia, birth defects, osteoporosis, eye disease, and depression. Vitamin B-12 has also shown to support healthy skin, nails, and hair!

On top of all that, Vitamin B-12 is the easiest way to boost your energy levels and maintain your health!

How Often should I receive B-12 injections?

A response usually is seen within 48 to 72 hours, with brisk production of new red blood cells. A repeat B-12 should be done 1 time a week for the first month. Then once B-12 reserves reach normal levels, injections of Vitamin B-12 will be needed every one to three months to prevent symptoms from returning.

How is B-12 administered?

The four most common injection sites for B-12 injections are the shoulder, hip, upper buttocks and the thigh. Practitioners commonly choose to give shots in the deltoid (shoulder) muscle, though the gluteus maximus (buttocks) muscle is sometimes used.
