Support Your Wellness with Vitamin B12 Injections
B12 injections are a great energy booster if you have been feeling sluggish, a little foggy, or just don’t have the pep you used to. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is essential for the normal functioning of nerve cells, the formation of red blood cells, and DNA synthesis in our body. Yet the amount of B12 in our system may diminish due to natural aging, or other factors such as malabsorption, diet (particularly vegetarian or vegan), regular use of antacids, PPLs, diabetic medications, gastrointestinal disorders or surgery recovery. We all need Vitamin B-12, and now you can enjoy enhanced wellness with B12 injections right in the comfort of our office!
Sources of Vitamin B12
The amount of Vitamin B12 your body needs depends on your age, health and diet. Most people get a sufficient amount from what they eat, such as fish, meat poultry, eggs, dairy products, foods that are fortified with B12, or one of our Metagenics Wellness supplements. However, according to the National Institute of Health, it is estimated that over 15% of people still lack the proper amount of this essential nutrient. Intramuscular B12 injections allow for maximum absorption directly into the tissues and have been shown to be very effective in addressing deficiency. Even if your levels are sufficient, Vitamin B12 injections are a popular way to stimulate your overall feeling of vitality.
