Vitamin B12 Injections
What is vitamin B12?
VItamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin which plays a vital role in brain function and the production of red blood cells. The vitamin is found in food such as red meat so many people can be deficient in B12 including vegetarians and vegans.
How does vitamin B12 work?
A deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause neurological problems and anaemia so vitamin B12 injections are a good way to prevent deficiency. As well as absorbing Vitamin B12 from food sources, it can also be acquired through a man-made supplement.
By having B12 supplements injected, the vitamin bypasses the digestive system which means it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. For those people who are not deficient, vitamin B12 injections can help to improve energy levels and help aid sleep.
What are the benefits of vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 can be taken orally but it can also be injected intramuscularly in order to bypass the digestive system and into the bloodstream quickly for absorption.
The key benefits of vitamin B12 include:
- High energy
