Vitamin B12 Injections

B12 is a great energy booster. It works through the red blood cells by enabling them to carry oxygen more efficiently. An oxygenated cell is a cell that is at its optimum, full of energy, and won’t tire easily. B12 is also great for the skin. These are just some of the benefits – overall, it’s an essential vitamin that the body must have to stay in balance. The only problem is that B12 is not that easily found in food – very few foods are B12-rich and they are essentially meat, eggs, and fermented foods. Vitamin B12 Shots are a preferred option because of their direct and immediate absorption into the bloodstream.

The side effect of which can be weight loss. With regular B12 shots and a combination of other weight loss regimens, people have reported to lose weight much faster and they attribute it to the shot.

What better way to deliver an energy booster than directly into the bloodstream? The other option would be to take a supplement, which would take many hours in the digestive process and would lose much value along the way.

None of the B12 gets lost in the digestive process. For comparison, a B12 tablet leaves you with only 1.2% of B12 in the tablet. A shot will lose very little, if any.

B12 is essential for a properly functioning central nervous system – we know that dysfunction can lead to depression. If you suffer from mild depression once in a while, you can try a B12 shot as a mood booster – some people have reported feeling happily giddy afterwards, but not for long. In a few hours, it settles and you are just happy!

B12 thins the blood and prevents blood stickiness. Blood cells sticking together is what leads to a blood clot which can cause a stroke.
