Vitamin B12, or Cobalamin, is often referred to as the “energy vitamin.” It is required to maintain optimal health and vitality and is essential for various critical body functions. Vitamin B12 is involved in DNA synthesis, energy production, the formation of red blood cells, and neurological health. While Vitamin B12 is naturally present in certain animal-based foods, deficiency can arise due to dietary restrictions, age, medical conditions, and poor absorption.
As a vital nutrient that plays a crucial role in energy production, neurological health, and overall well-being, Vitamin B12 injections are available at Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic as a quick IM injection or as a beneficial ingredient in many of our IV drip protocols. Our clinic is located in Port Moody – convenient to Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.
Some of the many benefits of Vitamin B12 include:
Vitamin B12 plays a pivotal role in converting food into energy. It supports the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to provided a natural boost in energy and reduced feelings of fatigue.
Vitamin B12 aids in proper nerve transmission by supporting the myelin sheath, which surrounds and protects nerve fibers. It is essential for maintaining healthy nerve cells and promoting optimal cognitive and neurological function.
Adequate B12 levels contribute to the production of neurotransmitters that regulate mood. B12 deficiency has been linked to mood disturbances and cognitive decline.
Vitamin B12 helps regulate the amino acid, homocysteine, and keep levels in check. Elevated homocysteine levels are associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
B12 is essential for the division of cells, as well as for DNA synthesis. It plays a vital role in maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails, while also supporting overall cellular growth and repair.
The administration of Vitamin B12 into the muscle (IM injection), bypasses the digestive system and is readily absorbed into the bloodstream. This direct route ensures much higher bioavailability than oral supplementation. Injections are highly effective for those with severe deficiencies or absorption issues, such as pernicious anemia.
In addition, Healthcare professionals can tailor the dosage of vitamin B12 injections to meet individual needs to ensure precise supplementation.
Intravenous administration of B12 take supplementation to a new level and allows for higher concentrations of B12 to be immediately delivered to the bloodstream. This can be particularly beneficial when addressing severe deficiencies or when requiring quick replenishment. IV administration ensures nearly 100% absorption of the administered B12, making it an ideal option for individuals with impaired gut absorption.
