What are B12 injections?

B12 Injections are an effective way to gain energy quickly and boost your overall health. Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble nutrient, also known as cobalamin. B12 plays a key roll in the normal functioning of the brain & nervous system as well as the formation of red blood cells. In addition, they assist with metabolism and boost energy so you can be alert throughout the day. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, however a deficiency may still occur.

What happens if I’m deficient?

The recommended daily intake of vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms per day. Deficiency is a widespread phenomenon. It is estimated that up to 90% of people following vegan or vegetarian diets are deficient. They may get little to no B12 from their food because it only occurs naturally in animal sources. If left untreated, vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to neurological problems or anemia.
