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:
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:
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:
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:

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Astoria Laser Clinic!! I have been going to see Olga (who is amazing) for ~5 months. I have done everything from CoolSculpting to Cool Tone to Vanquish to Venus to Laser Hair Removal and all of it has been fantastic.
Everyone is knowledgeable, professional and efficient. The treatments are state of the art, and I feel like those I had made a visible difference. All of the staff members are lovely, and really know the ins and outs of treatments. The establishment is spotless and all COVID precautions are enforced.
The girls here all super sweet and know how to treat you like family especially Louisa and Olga. They are experts at face care and so much more. Do yourself a favor and don’t go anywhere else for your spa needs. All staff are knowledgeable and courteous. It’s hard to find a friendly place that also knows the business
Very Pleased with my cooltone results. I met with Olga who was very knowledgeable and offered good insight on why and how this treatment would work and aid my goal in defining certain muscle groups. With Olga's advice and game plan I was able to obtain and meet my goal a bit early.
Astoria is a great medspa. It’s extremely clean, professional, and everyone makes you feel comfortable. Olga is absolutely incredible. She is extremely knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. She not only wants you to look good, but feel good. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Absolutely love the atmosphere and service that Ivana and Louisa have given me. Ivana is very careful and she truly cares and follows up after all treatments. Years of sun damage and rosacea problems are slowly being erased, and by face looks amazing! Their facilities are extremely neat and clean, you won't be disappointed!
This med spa and laser clinic has the latest techniques and procedures, delivered in an inviting, courteous and professional atmosphere. The staff is knowledgable, and excel at providing personal attention. I felt confident that the procedures I had would deliver results.
