Vitamin B12, an essential nutrient for your overall health

Vitamin B12 is responsible for proper functioning of our heart, brain, and nervous system. Our metabolism also depends on Vitamin B12 as it takes part in energy production and synthesis of fatty acids. Individuals over the age of 14 should consume at least 2.4 mcg of B12 daily.

At our medical center, we use Vitamin B12 shots for weight loss programs and to treat some other disorders due to the benefits they offer.

They help to:

  • increase energy level,
  • maintain a healthy liver,
  • detoxify the body,
  • increase red blood cell production,
  • regulate sleep and appetite.

The studies of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by renown doctors revealed that B12 injections dramatically improve ​energy and sleep quality.
For this reason, doctors administer Vitamin B12 shots in case their patients complain about a lack of energy.

Pills VS injections

Nowadays, Vitamin B12 is available in pills and supplements. The stomach acids that provide a natural breakdown of food also breakdown supplements that we take. Our body can only absorb as much as it naturally absorbs, which means that it will only absorb a small amount of B12 from the pill. Moreover, as we get older, our body’s ability to absorb nutrients through digestion decreases. Some adults even become completely unable to absorb B12 into their body. Injections allow you to directly supply your body with Vitamin B12.

Lifespan of Vitamin B12

​Vitamin B12 is water-soluble, which means that it quickly dissolves in water and does not remain in the body. It gets eliminated through urine within 24-72 hours depending on a person’s physical activity and water intake. Due to fast elimination, frequent supplementation is required to avoid Vitamin B12 deficiency and its consequences.
