Vitamin B12 Injections
Increase your energy levels and cognitive functionBook your consultation
Are you feeling weak and fatigued? Or perhaps you suffer from low energy and brain fog? You may have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in keeping our bodies healthy and functioning properly. It is responsible for the production of red blood cells, the maintenance of the nervous system, and the metabolism of proteins and fats. Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough of it through their diet alone, especially vegans and vegetarians.
Vitamin B12 injections can provide a quick and effective way to increase your body’s levels of this vital nutrient, helping to alleviate symptoms of deficiency such as fatigue, weakness, and numbness. By delivering a high dose of the vitamin directly into the bloodstream (bypassing the digestive system, and potentially avoiding absorption problems) these injections can boost energy levels, improve cognitive function, and support a healthy immune system.
What happens during a Vitamin B12 injection procedure?
You will have a consultation initially to ensure that a B12 injection is suitable for you. Then, once the injection site has been cleansed with an antiseptic solution, an ultra-thin needle will be used to inject the B12 solution into your upper arm or thigh. You may wish to have anaesthetic cream applied beforehand, to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible, but a B12 shot feels the same as any other injection.
The number of regular injection sessions you’ll need will be decided during the consultation stage. It will depend on your level of deficiency. This is a simple, safe procedure carried out by a highly experienced practitioner.
Most people will start to feel the benefits of B12 injections within a few days to a week after their first injection. These benefits can include increased energy levels, improved mental clarity, and a reduction in symptoms such as fatigue and weakness.
The effects of B12 injections are not permanent, and regular injections may be required to maintain optimal levels of the vitamin in the body. Generally, the effects of a Vitamin B12 injection can last for several weeks to several months. Our practitioner will discuss with you when to come in for your next shot.
Our practitioner is trained to administer the injection in a way that is as painless, and quick, as possible. You may apply anaesthetic cream beforehand if you wish.
These injections are generally considered safe and effective, however, you may experience mild swelling at the injection site, as well as redness or itching. This will soon subside.
Vitamin B12 injections are valuable to individuals who have a deficiency in this important nutrient, or have conditions that may prevent the absorption of vitamin B12, such as those with anemia or gastrointestinal disorders. Additionally, vegetarians and vegans may require these injections as this vitamin is primarily found in animal products. Our practitioner will discuss your current meds and and medical history with you before deciding whether it is suitable for you.
