What Are B12 Injections? 

There are two types of vitamin B12 injections: hydroxocobalamin and cyanocobalamin. We tend to use hydroxocobalamin as it stays in the body for longer; these injections help restore the right balance of this essential vitamin to enhance your mood, energy, and sleep.

What Do B12 Injections Do?

Vitamin B12 is involved in the production of DNA & red blood cells and plays an important role in the creation of mood-regulating chemicals in the brain. When your body doesn’t have enough B12, you can develop a deficiency, which can lead to neurological problems or pernicious anemia. Vitamin B12 shots prevent or treat this deficiency by raising your blood levels.

Who Is Most Likely To Suffer From A B12 Deficiency?

B12 is found naturally in animal foods, making a deficiency extremely common in vegetarians and vegans who get little to no B12 from their diet. But even some meat eaters don’t absorb the vitamin very well. Those at risk of deficiency include: 

  • The elderly – the ability to absorb B12 can decrease with age.
  • Individuals who have had intestinal surgery, including weight loss surgery.
  • Those with diseases that affect the gut, such as Chron’s or Celiac.
