Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that you must obtain through diet or supplements

It’s responsible for many bodily functions and may benefit your health in various ways, such as by preventing major birth defects, supporting bone health, improving mood and maintaining healthy skin and hair. Getting enough vitamin B12 through your diet is imperative. However, if you struggle to obtain enough or have a condition that affects absorption, injections are a simple way to increase your B12 intake.

Benefits of Vitamin B12 injections

Helps improve your appearance 

B12 is essential for the health of your skin, hair and nails as it plays a role in cell reproduction and therefore the renewal of your skin. Regular B12 shots restore your body’s ability to metabolise, and cause your hair to begin growing as usual, skin to glow and nails to get stronger. 

Alleviates anxiety

B12 can help fight mood swings, loss of focus and depression in a number of ways. One way it does this it’s by synthesizing melatonin, dopamine and serotonin, the chemical messengers that influence your moods.

Helps improve sleep patterns

As well as regulating your mood, melatonin also control your sleeping patterns and if you are suffering from B12 deficiency, a common effect is being unable to sleep and feeling tired throughout the day.

Increases energy levels and concentration

Vitamin B12 is required for the production of red blood cells that carry oxygen and nutrients around the body. Providing the fuel your cells need to produce energy, prevents tiredness, fatigue and inability to concentrate. B12 also assists in the process of converting food into glucose, which the body required for energy production.

Boosts the immune system

A lack of B12 interferes with your body’s ability to produce white blood cells. These cells are essential in fighting off infections and keeping your immune system in good working order. If you find yourself getting sick more often than usual or having allergies where you previously had none, you may need a B12 booster injection.

Improve metabolism and helps with weight loss

A deficiency of Vitamin B12 causes anemia meaning individuals can not efficiently convert fats and proteins into energy. B12 injections boost the metabolism so increasing levels of this vitamin can be invaluable support if you are trying to lose weight.

Increase your sex drive and chances of conceiving

Scientists believe that Vitamin B12, along with other essential B vitamins boost the sex drive by regulating sex hormones, keeping them in good balance to enable fertility.
