When our bodies are deficient in essential vitamins, they can act out in unexpected ways. Given our access to processed foods, it’s very easy to become deficient in key elements that our bodies need.

Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections

The purpose of the Vitamin B12 injections is to improve energy levels, boost metabolism and help burn fat, some of the key benefits are:

  • Boosts Overall Metabolic Rate - B12 helps in metabolizing fats and protein which in turns helps you to lose weight.
  • Helps to regulate sleep, mood, appetite, and energy.
  • Detoxification/ Liver Health - All fat soluble toxic chemicals require B12 to be cleaned from the body. Your liver is your bodies detoxifying organ and uses B12 to process fatty and amino acids used in the elimination of toxins.
  • Increases Red Blood Cell Production - Aids in the production of red cells, when deficient in B12, it can cause anemia.
  • Keeps nerves healthy - Helps to produce the fatty tissue around your nerves called myelin, which protects your nerves from damage.
  • Works to help produce Serotonin - This is one of the chemicals produced in your brain that helps you stay positive and is often referred to as a “feel good” chemical.

Why is it better to receive a shot vs. taking an oral supplement?

The stomach acids that aid in the natural digestion of food will break down the oral supplement in your stomach, and only allow the body to absorb a small amount of the actual B12. As you get older your body’s ability to absorb B12 through digestion continually decreases. The enzymes used to break down and metabolize vitamins decrease as you age. Vitamin injections and IV’s provide a direct method of supplying the body with nutrients.  As the B12 enters the blood stream, it is more readily available for the body to use as needed.

Length of time Vitamin B12 lasts in the body

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it easily dissolves in water and is not stored by the body. It is eliminated through the urine, typically between 24 and 72 hours depending on how active a person is and the amount of fluids they take in. Due to the rapid rate with which the body processes Vitamin B12 frequent supplementation is needed to address deficiencies and gain maximum benefits. We recommend an injection once per week, but it can be done daily if needed.
