B12 Shots & Injectable Therapies

Injectable Therapy

Vitamin B12 Shots

Regular $20   High Potency $28

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and is key component in the formation of red blood cells.  B12 is found in animal products, dairy products and seafood. B12 is so essential, yet it can be very tricky to absorb. Oral supplements should only be in the methylcobalamin or hydroxycobalamin form, however, a cheap, but stabile form called cyanocobalamin is often used in supplements purchased in drugstores or in injectibles used in conventional medical setting. Cyanocobalamin contains a cyanide molecule (!) that is not found in nature.

Here at NatureMedica we use methlcobalamin 90% of the time and hydroxycobalamin the rest of the time.

Here are some things you may not have known about B12:

•  Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause nerve damage, fatigue, depression, neuropathy, poor memory, loss of balance mania and psychosis.

•  Drugs that can cause B12 deficiency: alcohol, oral contraceptives, antacids, proton pump inhibitors and H2 blockers, Metformin, Dilantin.

•  Vegetarian and vegan diets are often B-12 poor and may require supplementation.

•  B12 helps safeguard against allergies. B12 stimulates production of TH1 suppressor T cells that down regulate IGE antibody production.

•  B12 can optimize metabolism and improve energy; key components in weight loss!

•  B12 is necessary for the formation of the myelin sheath around nerves. This is likened to plastic coating on wires. This keeps are nervous system from figuratively speaking, getting “our wires crossed”.

•  B12 protects against heart disease by reducing homocystine levels. Elevated levels of homocysteine increase cardiovascular risk by increasing atherosclerosis and hardened arteries.

•  B12 also has an important role in forming new red blood cells and can cause an anemia if deficient. Anemia can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate and weakness.

Most people can do well to have a B12 Vitamin shot at least once a quarter!
