Vitamin B12 Injection benefits: The Energy Tonic

Vitamin B12 is a vital nutrient required by the body. It supports us to stay healthy allowing a multitude of the body’s processes to function. Some find it to be beneficial during periods of stress, fatigue and burn out. It's restorative effect can offer an energy boost.

Our body has a limited capacity for storage of Vitamin B, so an adequate amount of Vitamin B12 consumption is necessary for the proper functioning of the body’s processes.

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient required by our bodies. Humans must get B12 from food or dietary supplements because the B12 we do produce in our colon is unfortunately not in the part of the digestive tract where we absorb nutrients. Feeling stressed, lacking mental clarity and having reduced physical energy levels are common side effects of a vitamin B12 deficiency.

B12 rich foods are most abundant from animal sources. Lifestyle choices such as veganism and for those interested in sport and endurance performance have lead to an increase in the demand of B12 shots and their availability.

Oral vitamin supplements have to go through the long process of digestion before they’re absorbed into the bloodstream. Vitamin B12 injections, on the other hand, deliver the dosage directly into your body allowing your body to absorb the full amount of Vitamin B12 injected, unlike supplements, which, after digestion, only deliver a portion of the dose they originally contained.

What are the possible benefits?

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient having many important roles in our body’s functioning, including:

  • Improved energy and stamina
  • Improved sleep quality and duration
  • Higher metabolism
  • Improved mental clarity and mood
  • Balanced immune system
Vitamin B12 Injection Benefits

How often can I receive the injections?

Vitamin B12 supplementation is most effective when taken at regular intervals. If you’re looking to feel better and look better we advise a healthy lifestyle including good food choices, adequate rest and minimising stress. Injections of Vitamin B12 may give you the boost if you are finding yourself over indulging or in physically demanding or stressful periods. If you adhere strictly to a plant based diet then in order to receive adequate amounts of B12 you may require supplementation.

We recommend once weekly for 4 weeks. A regular injection schedule can be individualized and treatment only takes a few minutes.

Aesthetic facts about Vitamin B12

In order to absorb B12 via our digestive tract we rely on a substance called intrinsic factor. This is a naturally occurring substance that our body makes allowing us to absorb and assimilate B12. Intrinsic factor reduces as we age making it more difficult to absorb B12. The American College of Physicians assumes that our ability to produce intrinsic factor is severely reduced by 70 years of age.

Vitamin B12 assists in the body's manufacturing of healthy red blood cells and supports the nerve cells to be in good condition.

Benefiting our overall appearance including our mood, energy level, memory, heart, skin, hair, digestion, playing an essential role in multiple metabolic functions.

Vitamin B12 helps to regulate the production of pigment in the skin, helping to prevent dark spots and pigmentation. B12 also assists the body with the metabolism of protein which, in turn, promotes the growth of healthy skin cells and helps to repair damaged skin.
