WHY IS VITAMIN B12 IMPORTANT FOR MY HEALTH?
Vitamin B12 plays an essential role in many body functions, including balancing your metabolism by supporting your digestive system, and creating new red blood cells. B12 helps increase your energy levels and prevent weight gain and anemia. This vitamin also promotes bone health and may decrease your risk of osteoporosis.
B12 is also vital for your brain health and helps with:
- Increasing focus
- Reducing stress
- Improving memory
- Regulating mood
- Neuron regeneration
If you are pregnant or trying to conceive, getting enough vitamin B12 is important for your baby’s development, and it can significantly minimize the risk of birth defects or miscarriages.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN GETTING A B12 SHOT?
Vitamin B12 oral supplements exist but your body doesn’t absorb nutrients as well when they have to go through the digestive system. A B12 injection bypasses your stomach and delivers the vitamin straight into your bloodstream. This near 100% absorption rate can make a significant difference in restoring your body’s B12 supply. This is especially useful as B12 is one of the few vitamins that your body can store. Since B12 can last in your liver until other parts of your body need the vitamin, you may enjoy the shots’ effects for a longer period.
You may experience minor side effects in the hours or days following a B12 shot, such as pain or redness at the injection site, mild diarrhea, itching, or swelling. We will adjust the dosage and schedule of your B12 treatments to your specific needs. We can work with your physician to make sure you reach your health goals and feel energized!
