B-12 Injections Q&A

What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that enhances brain function, promotes red blood cell production, and contributes to your nerve function. The B vitamin is also vital to metabolic efficiency. B12 helps the body convert protein and fat into energy while breaking down the carbohydrates. 

B12 is available in several foods, including fortified cereals, shellfish, and liver. However, it can be very difficult to get enough vitamin B12 your body needs from foods alone (especially if you have specific dietary limitations or health conditions). 

If you have a chronic condition like diabetes and need medication like metformin, it can affect your body’s overall ability to absorb vitamin B12 properly. 

A B12 deficiency is common, causing symptoms like pale skin, irritability, and fatigue. Fortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is a treatable condition.

When might I need B12 injections?

B12 injections can help optimize your metabolism and improve the health of your hair, skin, and nails. 

Other conditions that vitamin B12 can help with include*:

  • Dizziness 
  • Persistent fatigue 
  • Blurry vision 
  • Depression symptoms
  • Weight loss 

The team at Atlantic Health Medical Associates offers B12 treatment in an injection form, as well as intravenously through IV vitamin therapy. 

IV therapy and injections are often preferable to oral supplements because you won’t lose any of the nutrient in the digestive process. 

Many researchers believe that when you consume vitamins and minerals orally, your body breaks it down before it can be absorbed for maximum potency. That means, you might lose the nutritional benefits of vitamin B12. 

How many B12 injections will I need?

After getting B12 injections, your body takes what it needs to fuel its processes, but it gets rid of the rest through natural processes. 

Whether you choose B12 injections or IV therapy at Atlantic Health Medical Associates, your provider can recommend an injection or IV therapy schedule so you can get the most benefits.

You can also combine your IV therapy plan with B12 injections if you’re interested in boosting your wellness after an illness, hangover, intense workout, or long work day.
