Frequently Asked Questions

Why a B12 injection instead of a vitamin?

Vitamin B12 can be found in vitamins or animal products, so why choose an injection over these other ways? An injection of vitamin B12 is more effective than using vitamins or relying on animal products. For people on vegetarian or vegan diets, up to 90% have a vitamin B12 deficiency: even those who take extra vitamins. Unfortunately, our bodies do not always absorb vitamins through our stomach correctly. This can be because of high stomach acid or even age.

Vitamin B12 injections bypass the stomach and go straight into the bloodstream. Your body will immediately have access to the vitamin it needs to begin repairing right away. With injections, you will see benefits faster than with vitamins. Another great thing about vitamin B12 is it is one of the few vitamins your body can store. If there is any vitamin B12 your body doesn’t use right away from the injection, it will store it in your liver to use over time, keeping your body healthier for a longer period.

Is it true that Vitamin B12 injections are especially good for vergans and vegetarians?

Vegans and vegetarians who often don’t get enough of the vitamin in their diets because they don’t eat meat will find these injections to be especially beneficial.

Can Vitamin B12 shots help me lose weight?

The shots themselves aren’t formulated for weight loss, but you might have an easier time shedding unwanted pounds with the increase in energy that vitamin B12 can provide.

Can Vitamin B12 injections help treat other medical conditions?

Vitamin B12 has been shown to be effective in treating the symptoms of anemia, ataxia and low blood pressure. Some people who suffer from dementia or other forms of mental or mood disturbances have also shown improvements after receiving vitamin B12 injections.

What to expect after getting a B12 shot?

Pain/redness at the injection site, mild diarrhea, itching, or a feeling of swelling all over the body may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Can Vitamin B12 injections be harmful?

Vitamin B12 injections are generally considered to be very safe. They have no major side effects. However, in very rare cases, some people can experience side effects caused by allergic reactions or sensitivity ( 29 , 30 ). If you experience any side effects, speak with your doctor.

How long does it take for Vitamin B12 to kick in?

B12 injections work quickly; they are the most effective way for your body to absorb Vitamin B12. Within 48 to 72 hours, your body will begin to make new red blood cells. For mild deficiencies, you may need two to three injections over several weeks to notice peak impact.
