Vitamin B12 Shots (Intramuscular B12 Injections)
Vitamin B12 boosts energy, memory, mood, and overall health. Normally, we obtain vitamin B12 from dietary sources, such as animal protein, dairy, and fortified grains, or in supplement form.
Vitamin B12 is absorbed in our digestive system by way of a series of chemical processes. However, vitamin B12 can sometimes be difficult to absorb from food or pills, or we simply do not have enough vitamin B12 in our diet. Other factors, such as stress or aging, can impair our body’s ability to properly absorb vitamin B12.
Intramuscular B12 injections are an excellent way to restore vitamin B12 levels. B12 injections bypass potential gastrointestinal absorption issues, and efficiently deliver the vitamin to the tissues that need it most.
Conditions that may benefit from vitamin B12 shots include:
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
Anxiety, depression, psychiatric disorders
Mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s
Nerve pain, numbness, tingling
Fatigue, low energy
Note: B12 injections are for existing patients only (no appointment required).
