B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 deficiency is believed to be one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world. B12 injections can be used to offset the many symptoms of deficiency, such as fatigue and weakness and low mood.

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that’s crucial for many vital metabolic and hormonal functions — including the production of digestive enzymes and carrying important nutrients into and out of cells. Due to how it helps convert and synthesize many other compounds within the body, it’s needed for well over 100 daily functions. Some of the roles that are attributed to vitamin B12 include:

  • Forming red blood cells

  • Playing a role in DNA/RNA synthesis

  • Acting as a cofactor for methionine synthase (helping with methylation or the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, which protects cardiovascular health and more)

  • Facilitating metabolic conversion of protein and fats

  • Carrying out neurotransmitter functions and helping with production of hormones

  • Helping convert amino acids and make creatine

  • Producing myelin sheath (the coating of nerves)

  • Helping with synthesis of hemoglobin

  • Playing a role in fetal development during pregnancy
