About B12 Injections
B12 Injections in Halifax & Dartmouth
What is vitamin B12?
B12 is a nutrient your body uses to build and maintain healthy red blood cells and nerves. It also helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy, aids in DNA synthesis, helps carry out neurotransmitter function, and supports hormone production. Your body can’t make this essential vitamin, so it relies on the food you eat and the supplements you take.
Why get a B12 shot?
B12 shots ensure better absorption and more rapid effect than B12 supplements. If you have any digestive issues, B12 is not well absorbed in the digestive tract and you’ll find the benefits are more noticeable after a shot.
The benefits of B12 injections include increased energy and improved mood. B12 shots also support your nervous, immune, and metabolic systems.
You might also benefit from a B12 shot if you experience:
- Depression and other mood disorders
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Chronic fatigue
- Poor memory or lack of concentration
- Multiple sclerosis
- Anemia, or a vegan or vegetarian diet
- Malabsorption disorders (Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease)
B12 injections are administered by a naturopathic doctor, and are often covered by your private health care plan.
