What are Vitamin B12 injections for?

Vitamin B12 injections are becoming more and more popular.

This is because the awareness of the benefits are found in almost every article relating to good health & well-being. A deficiency in vitamin B12 can result in a range of health issues, including fatigue, weakness, and potentially permanent neurological impairments. If an individual has low vitamin B12 levels due to a suboptimal diet or an existing health condition, their GP may recommend vitamin B12 injections. These injections facilitate faster absorption of vitamin B12 into the body compared to supplements in tablet or capsule form, as they bypass the digestive system and directly enter the bloodstream.

While vitamin B12 deficiency is uncommon in most healthy adults due to the liver's ability to store it over time, individuals with gastrointestinal conditions like Crohn’s Disease or Celiac Disease may struggle to absorb sufficient vitamin B12 from their diet. This deficiency can be more prevalent in those following a vegan or vegetarian diet, as vitamin B12 is primarily found in animal products. Consequently, vitamin B12 injections prove highly beneficial in elevating levels to a healthy range.

Consider vitamin B12 injections if you experience any of the following deficiency symptoms:

  • Forgetfulness 

  • Fatigue 

  • Heart palpitations 

  • Pale skin 

  • Weight loss 

  • Infertility 

  • Tingling and numbness in the feet and hands 

  • Dementia 

  • Mood changes 

  • Sore tongue 

  • Loss of appetite

  • Increased metabolism
