B 12 Injections

Increase your Energy - Increase your Metabolism with B12

Intramuscular vitamin injections are a technique that delivers nutrients deep into muscles allowing better nutrient absorption. There are limits to the amount of nutrients that can be absorbed via oral administration but muscular tissue has excellent blood supply, holds large volumes of nutrients and bypasses the digestive system. Intramuscular injection allows the body to absorb large doses of vitamins making it more effective.

B12 improves brain function and mental clarity, increases energy, boosts metabolism, enhances mood, supports immune system, helps build more red blood cells, promotes deeper sleep and promote proper nervous system function.

Vitamin B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many functions in the body, including:

  • DNA synthesis

  • energy production

  • nerve cell health

  • red blood cell formation

  • neurological function


What are the benefits of vitamin B-12?

Since vitamin B12 is associated with neural and cognitive functioning, some people take B12 to improve mood, energy, and concentration.

  • Lipotropic shots contain B12 in addition to several amino acids that help the body metabolize fat, which is a great tool that helps people lose weight. 

  • Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the circulatory system, and high levels of B12 can reduce homocysteine levels. Homocysteine blocks the arteries and taxes the heart, so by reducing homocysteine levels, vitamin B12 reduces the risk for heart disease and stroke.

  • By helping the body regulate your circadian rhythms, vitamin B12 can help you sleep better.

  • Vitamin B12 provides a boost to the immune system by making the rest of the body run more smoothly, which can reduce chance of illness.

B-12 is present in many food sources (mainly animal-based), where it is bound to the protein molecules in that food.

Vitamin B-12 is separated from the protein during digestion and is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Adequate stomach acid is required to release the vitamin from the protein, and a substance called intrinsic factor is necessary to ensure its absorption.

People who are unable to absorb vitamin B-12 properly may have pernicious anemia, which is a type of anemia characterized by a lack of intrinsic factor.

In addition to getting B-12 from food sources, it is possible to acquire B-12 through a man-made version of the nutrient, known as methylcobalamin.

Vitamin B-12 shots are injections containing high levels of methylcobalamin. These shots can quickly boost B-12 levels in someone who is deficient.
