Vitamin B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 deficiency is common, especially in people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. In fact, many people regularly get injections with vitamin B12. The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms per day. B12 is only found naturally in animal foods. However, vegans and vegetarians are not the only ones who are deficient. Even some meat eaters don’t absorb it very well. 

Unlike other vitamins, the absorption of vitamin B12 depends on a protein produced in your stomach, called intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor binds to vitamin B12, so that you can absorb it into the blood. People who don’t produce enough intrinsic factor can become deficient.

Deficiency is particularly common in elderly people, because the ability to absorb vitamin B12 can decrease with age. Other people at risk of deficiency include those who have had intestinal surgery, including weight loss surgery. Those with diseases that affect the gut, such as Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, are also at risk.

Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections;
Prevents fatigue
Boosts energy levels
Improves the immune system
Accelerates the metabolism
Supports mental health
Improves memory and concentration
Aids sleep

*Results will vary from person to person.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do I need a blood test?
No, this isn’t necessary as you cannot overdose on vitamin b12, the body will store what it needs and get rid of the rest.

What happens if I take too much?
Nothing, your body will only store what it needs and get rid of the rest.

How often can I have an Injection?

 GPs normally give these every 12 weeks, but the effects wear off before this and as a result the patient is left feeling sluggish and run down. There is no reason not to have them more regularly. Normally the average time between a client needing another is around 6 to 8 weeks.

When will I feel the effects of the treatment?
It can take up to a week, but normally you will start to feel the benefits after a few days.

Can I have the treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Unfortunately not with us. Although it is safe it has to be prescribed and administered by your gp.

Are there any side effects?
Apart from tender muscle at the injection site, normally no.

We cannot treat under 18s
