What are B12 Injections?

Vitamin B12 injections are a surefire way to get your daily dose of this essential nutrient, also known as cobalamin. When injected, B12 is more easily absorbed as it bypasses your gut and instead enters the bloodstream directly. This makes B12 injections an optimal choice for those with serious deficiencies and sensitive stomachs. B12 is responsible for numerous functions in the body, including immune health and energy levels, but is often missing from diets, especially among those who abstain from animal products.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are B12 Injections Safe?

Yes, when administered by a medical professional as part of your overall wellness regimen, B12 injections are immensely safe. Your body needs vitamin B12 to function its best, and it is an essential nutrient that is often missing from certain diets, especially those who follow a vegan lifestyle. We use the highest quality B12 to ensure that everything that enters your bloodstream has passed rigorous safety and quality control inspections.

Is There Any Downtime?

No, there is no downtime. You’re good to return to your routine immediately after your shot, though you may experience some soreness from the needle. This should dissipate within several hours.

When Will I See Improvement and How Long Will That Last?

Your body will absorb the B12 immediately after the shot. The amount of time it takes to see improvement varies depending upon individual metabolism and how much B12 your body can process, which will also depend on if you have a deficiency or not. Most patients find improvement lasts 3-4 weeks depending on baseline levels: B12 is a water-soluble vitamin so your body needs more over a set period.

How Much Do B12 Injections Cost?

The price is $25 but subject to change – it is not based on how much is used.
