Vitamin B12 Booster Injections

Vitamin B12 is a vital component in ensuring we function properly in our day to day lives. It helps us stay energetic, protects us against a number of health issues and studies have even suggested that it can improve your memory and overall brain function. Vitamin B12 injections typically contain synthetic Vitamin B12 – a man-made version called cyanocobalamin – and can quickly boost the levels of B12 in a person’s system as needed

The Benefits

Vitamin B12 injections can give you an energy boost.
Even if you don’t suffer from a deficiency, a B12 boost can still provide a number of benefits, from reducing the risk of deficiency-related conditions to improving brain function, bone health and giving you an overall energy boost:

Reduced risk of associated complications
Even if you aren’t showing pressing signs of a B12 deficiency, many of us still aren’t getting the right volume every day, particularly if we’re sick, pregnant or breastfeeding.

Vitamin B12 shots can help to prevent the associated complications of deficiency, including heart disease, coordination problems, vision loss, infertility, neurocognitive disorders and peripheral neuropathy. Some of these conditions can be solved with an injection, but we can discuss this with you on a case-by-case basis.

Higher Level Of Absorption
When injected into the body, Vitamin B12 can bypass the gastrointestinal tract and go directly where it’s needed – for this reason, a shot can be a better choice than oral supplements for a higher level of assimilation.

This is particularly beneficial for adults over 65 and those with problems or previous surgery in the digestive tract.

While B12 can’t necessarily improve your brain function on its own, it can help to prevent the loss of neurons associated with memory reduction. Some studies suggest that it can even slow down the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. One study, in particular, suggested that while it could not reverse the effects, a mixture of B12 and Omega-3 could slow down mental decline for early-stage dementia patients. 

How often will I need the injection?

You will require a blood test in order to assess your Vitamin B12 levels. On average it is every 6 months if you don't get enough B12 from your food, or every 2-3 months if you have pernicious anaemia
There is no need for another blood test after the first.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency (such as tiredness, headaches, shortness of breath and heart palpitations), and you do not already receive the vitamin B12 injection, you will need to be tested to determine if you have a deficiency before we can begin treatment. This is done to ensure that you are healthy enough to get the injection.
