What are B12 Injections?
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an essential vitamin that plays a role in many important bodily functions, including DNA production, nerve cells, and red blood cells. When a person is low in vitamin B12, they may begin to feel tired or weak due to anemia.
Vitamins are essential compounds for organic processes such as metabolism, protein formation, hormone regulation, and digestion.
Vitamin B12 injections are a form of supplementation that contains a synthetic version of vitamin B12. This injection is given into the muscle since muscular tissue contains more blood supply.

Am I a Candidate for B12 Injections
Almost anyone can benefit from B12 injections, as they are generally considered to be very safe. If you are looking for a boost, consider asking us about this injection.
Unlike vitamins A, D, E, and K which are stored in fat, B vitamins are water soluble and not stored in large quantities. Therefore, we can more easily become deficient.
If you believe that you may be anemic or are experiencing symptoms such as numbness or tingling in your hands or feet, fatigue, or pale skin, be sure to visit your doctor for assessment and diagnosis. If you are diagnosed with anemia, you may be given a prescription of B12 shots.
Following B12 injections, you may experience a dull ache at the injection site for about an hour. This should not be painful and will resolve with time. Avoid touching your injection site for about six hours after injection and avoid strenuous activity for 48 hours. There is no downtime needed, so you can return to your daily tasks right away.
