The Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections

Various vitamins and antioxidants have been getting their time in the limelight over the last several years. One of the hottest trending vitamins right now is Vitamin B12, specifically in the form of an injection. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is required for essential physiological activities such as red blood cell formation, development, and nervous system function. Vitamin B12 deficiency, which can be common, is caused by a variety of circumstances, including ageing, blood disease, vegetarian diet, dyspepsia, drug usage, and inadequate nutrition.

Vitamin B12 shots have become so popular because of their benefits and safety that you can get them at almost any health or wellness spa without a prescription, whether you’re deficient in B12 or not. Have you thought about getting a Vitamin B12 injection? Not sure if you need it or about the benefits? Keep reading and find out some of the reasons why this specific injection has so much popularity around it.

At Sabrina Medical Aesthetics, our Vitamin B12 injections will assist your skin with looking more youthful, bringing out an enhanced appearance overall. This vitamin will in general, promote healthy skin, hair, and nails. 

With our B12 injections you’ll be receiving other optimal benefits as well, such as DNA support that keeps your cells younger, protecting brain cells and preventing depression, promoting heart health and of course, energy production. Let's discuss the benefits of vitamin B12.

What Are the Health Benefits of Vitamin B12?

  1.   Boost Your Hair Health

Red blood cell production is aided by Vitamin B12. Some people feel that this will help them improve the quality of their hair health.

In a study conducted, hair loss patients were found to have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Although not conclusive, improving levels of Vitamin B12 could modify the progression of hair loss. The blood vessels at the base of our hair follicles that link to each strand transport oxygen to the hair, thus promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss.

  1.   Improve Your Mood

The impact of Vitamin B12 on our mood isn’t completely understood. What we do know is this vitamin is necessary for the production and metabolism of serotonin, a chemical that regulates our mood.

A deficiency in B12 may lead to decreased levels of serotonin production, which may cause a down or depressed mood. In fact, supplementing with Vitamin B12 has been shown to improve symptoms of depression in people who are deficient in B12.

  1.   Get Your Skin Glowing

Vitamin B12 aids in the healing of injured or damaged skin. It evens out skin tone and inhibits hyperpigmentation, which causes skin darkening. It significantly reduces skin pigmentation, which again helps to maintain an even skin tone.

Vitamin B12 also aids in the synthesis of collagen and through this helps with the formation of healthy new skin cells.

  1.   Give Yourself an Energy Boost

Are you feeling fatigued or have a lack of energy? A B12 deficiency might be one of the reasons. This vitamin is talked about often when it comes to “improving your energy”, although all B-vitamins play a role in our body’s energy production, they don’t directly provide energy.

Why Choose Vitamin B12 Injections Over Oral Supplementation?

When it comes to choosing your mode of B12 supplementation you might be asking yourself, does it really matter? The truth is there are pros and cons to both methods that you should evaluate before deciding on your method of supplementation.

If you’re taking an oral supplement, you must take a pill daily and one might not be enough. When you take any pill or tablet orally, they’re usually not absorbed fully as they’re being broken down by our bodies. This means you would likely need to take higher doses of Vitamin B12 daily to absorb an adequate amount. The average adult needs roughly 2.4mcg per day, this means you may need to take 1-2 pills on top of your other oral supplements. You’ll also need to supplement for several days to restore your B12 levels.

With B12 injections, you can have one done once a week or once a month, this is because B12 injections are absorbed much more easily by the body. The effects of the B12 injection are also a lot faster than oral B12 supplements. This is especially true in those who are deficient in B12, supplementing orally can take sometimes up to 8-to-12 months to restore their B12 levels. However, with B12 injections deficient levels can be restored within a handful of injections over a period, this varies on a case-by-case basis as everyone’s needs are different. Therefore, it’s crucial you consult with a professional beforehand so you can have a treatment plan created for your specific needs.
