Vitamin B12 Injections

What is Vitamin B12 and who would benefit from injections?

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an essential role in nerve function, cell metabolism, red blood cell formation, and a few other critical processes of the body. People with a deficiency of this vitamin may experience fatigue, muscle weakness, anemia, and mood swings on an ongoing basis if left untreated. 

The main factors that can cause a B12 deficiency are:

  • Age (the older you are, the more you need)
  • Diet
  • History of certain diseases, conditions, or gastric surgeries
  • Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
  • Alcohol misuse or excessive smoking
  • Anything that may be preventing your tissue from absorbing vitamins well

Vitamin B12 can be found in meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy, so if you are eating a vegetarian or vegan diet, you are likely not getting this key vitamin everyday unless you are receiving it as a supplement. Likewise if you are living an unhealthy lifestyle by excessively smoking and drinking, your body’s ability to absorb nutrients severely diminishes which triggers the deficiency. 

Vitamin B12 injections go directly under the skin or in the muscle tissue. The injections are a more effective option if your body has trouble absorbing vitamins and nutrients since these go directly into the tissue. There’s also not a long waiting period– you’ll likely experience the effects of injections within 12-24 hours.

There are many different reasons why you may be feeling tired or fatigued more than usual. Other signs that you may be deficient or could use a boost of B12 include:

  • Issues with focus, memory, or feeling confused often
  • Depression or irritability 
  • Headaches and muscle weakness
  • Pale skin
  • Pain or swelling in the mouth/tongue

What are the top benefits of Vitamin B12 injections?

Vitamin B12 converts carbohydrates into glucose in the body which leads to energy production and a major decrease in lethargy and fatigue. Other top benefits of B12 injections include:

  • Helps to regulate the nervous system by reducing depression, stress, and brain shrinkage
  • Helps to maintain a healthy digestive system
  • Protects you against heart disease and stroke by aiding cholesterol levels and high blood pressure
  • Helps cell reproduction and skin rejuvenation– this is an essential vitamin for healthy hair, skin, and nails
  • Helps protect against different types of cancer including breast, lung, colon, and prostate 

What makes the shots so effective?

Injection shots are often prescribed or recommended because they allow for 100% absorption directly into the tissues. There’s an array of health conditions that could be preventing your body from properly digesting and absorbing nutrients efficiently. 

A low-quality oral B12 supplement will likely never have the same quick and positive side effects that injections will have. There’s a recommended measurement of how much B12 your body needs and with swallowing the supplement, it’s a guessing game at how much of it will actually be absorbed and used properly.

Injections are effective at both reversing and preventing a B12 deficiency. But it’s important to note that many people without a deficiency are choosing to still add B12 injections into their wellness routine as they have been proven to:

  • Speed up metabolism and aid in weight loss
  • Improve overall mood and ability to concentrate
  • Improve energy levels and fight fatigue
  • Boost the immune system
