Vitamin B12 Shots
Do you feel low on energy? If you are depleted in vitamin B12, this could be contributing to your diminished energy levels. Many people can have a deficiency in vitamin B12, especially if they eat a plant-based diet, but even meat eaters can have low levels of this water-soluble vitamin. At Ederra Bella, we offer vitamin B12 shots to restore healthy levels of this nutrient at our medical spa in Johns Creek, GA.
Vitamin B12 is one of the many “B” vitamins that are water soluble, meaning they are not stored in the body. These vitamins need to be routinely replenished, and most are found in a wide variety of foods. However, B12 is unique, as it is only found in animal-based foods like meat, fish, poultry and dairy products. This can make it challenging for some people with restricted proteins in their diet to get enough vitamin B12, requiring supplementation.
It is not only vegetarians and vegans that may be low in vitamin B12. Many people experience deficiencies due to poor absorption within the digestive system. This is why B12 injections are superior to oral supplements. These shots bypass the digestive system so the vitamin is directly added to the bloodstream, giving immediate results.
Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections
Vitamin B12 is known for its impact on energy, but it does much more than give you a boost. Vitamin B12 is important for your metabolism, nerve function, immune system, eye function, red blood cell formation, sleep cycle and much more. Low levels can impact your overall wellness, while keeping higher levels can add to your vitality. Since vitamin B12 is water soluble, any portion not used in the body will naturally flush out through your elimination system.
Vitamin B12 shots can be performed in about 15-20 minutes. Many people notice a difference almost immediately in their energy levels, but multiple shots may be needed to get to a healthy level in those that are deficient.
