Frequently Asked Questions
A B12 shot is an injection of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many areas of the body, including the formation of red blood cells and nerve health.
For many people, a vitamin injection is a safe way to replenish the body’s vitamin stores. It is not always easy to prepare the best foods to ensure that we are getting adequate vitamins in our diet. As a result, many people likely suffer from mild vitamin B12 deficiencies and may not even know it. While some people try oral supplements to replenish their levels, many feel that an intramuscular vitamin injection works better for them. Reported benefits from our patients include improved sleep, more energy and a better body fat distribution.
In contrast to oral supplements, a direct B12 injection involves getting the vitamins injected directly into your muscle. While this sounds painful, it actually is relatively painless for most people. One good part about getting a vitamin shot in this way is that you bypass any absorption issues that your gut might have, leading to a full dose in your body.
Assuming that you have received a high-quality B12 shot, the most common side effect (which is uncommon) is pain at the injection site. Also, there are people with rare medical conditions who can have more severe side effects and should not receive a B12 shot. Through our screening protocols we will check for these conditions before we administer one to you.
We recommend getting shots from a reputable place. There are many reasons why someone should not get a vitamin shot (we screen everyone before administering one) but, for the most part, they are very safe and any excess vitamin will be excreted by your body.
At most, we recommend getting our B12 injection once per week. If you find they work for you, we recommend getting one at least once per month. These are just guidelines as the best thing you can do is pay attention to how your body feels after you get the vitamin shot and when you notice any effects wearing off.
While vitamin shots like B12 and lipp are injected into a muscle (intramuscular), IV vitamin injections involve placing a needle in your blood vessel and administering vitamins and minerals directly into your blood. Because of how our bodies work, some vitamins and minerals cannot be absorbed from an intramuscular injection.
