Patients are asking for the Vitamin B-12 shots. Why? It’s because it gives them the “oomph” they need that makes them feel BETTER overall, the upshot being a sustainable ENERGY! B-12 plays an important role in the proper functioning of the brain, the cardiovascular and nervous systems, and blood cells. In fact, it’s involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, including energy production.
Deficiencies are real, mostly in the elderly, which can result in anemia, weakness, fatigue, depression, insomnia, confusion and even memory loss. Unfortunately, Vitamin B-12 is a little elusive to obtain and maintain. It’s water-soluble, so it’s not stored in the body, and the body absorbs only a SMALL amount of the vitamin from a pill supplement and from the food that we eat (meat, fish and dairy). As we get older, the ability to absorb B-12 continually decreases.
We offer Vitamin B-12 INJECTIONS, which provide a DIRECT method of supplying and benefiting the body with the vitamin – because it’s easily absorbed. Our monthly B-12 shots of 1,000 mcg. are helping to enhance and improve our patients’ sense of well-being. If you would like to reap the benefits from the Vitamin B-12 injections, please call us to schedule an appointment.
