Vitamin B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 Injection

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.

When administered via injection, vitamin C is quickly and efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have difficulty absorbing vitamin C through their digestive system, such as those with malabsorption issues or certain medical conditions.

  1. Boosts immune system: Vitamin C is known for its immune-boosting properties. Vitamin C injections can help improve immune function, making it easier for your body to fight off infections and illnesses.

Biotin Injection

It is believed that the vitamin biotin improves the basic protein that makes up the hair, skin and nails.

This basic protein is called keratin. Biotin deficiency can cause brittle hair and hair loss.

Biotin can be taken in a tablet form or given intramuscularly as an injection  Many supplements and vitamins are not completely absorbed by our bodies through ingestion and thus intramuscular biotin injection has been helpful in increasing biotin levels faster in patients.

Biotin intra-muscular injections also go hand in hand for hair growth and strengthening.

Most people get the biotin they need from eating a healthy diet, but there have been many claims that getting more biotin can regulate your blood sugar, promote healthy hair, skin, and nails.
