*B12 is an essential vitamin with multiple functions in the body. B12 is found in dairy and poltry in very small amounts and abundant in red meat. If you do not consume red meat and do not supplement with B12, you can become deficient within 2 to 3 years. As we age specially, our body’s ability to absorb nutrients, especially B12 diminishes. Absorption of oral supplements are minimal as well. That’s why injections of B12, as to bypass the digestive system becomes more important.
B12 deficiency can have many negative effects including fatigue, anemia, memory deficits, numbness and tingling leading to more serious neurological deficits to name a few.
B12 (as well as folic acid) aid in the formation of red blood cells, which carry nutrients and oxygen through out the body. That’s why patients report “feeling re-charged” after the injections.
Other benefits of intramuscular B12 injections include healthy immune system, supports red blood cell formation, neurological health, and healthy sleep pattern.
*Bcomplex contains the entire spectrum of B vitamins including B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6.
Bcomplex supports carbohydrate metabolism, healthy nervous system/adrenal / immune function. Supports cardiovascular health, healthy mental function and mood. Our patients have reported improvements in their PMS symptoms, as well as mood stabilization after just one injection.
The frequency of the injections depends on whether or not there’s a deficiency and what we’re trying to achieve.
