If you’re feeling lethargic, moody, and scattered, you may be experiencing the effects of a vitamin B12 deficiency. Many men and women fail to get enough vitamin B12 in their diets, especially as they get older. You can supplement your intake with vitamin B12 injections at our Louisiana and Mississippi clinics. Our lipotropic injections, including Lipo B and Lipo C injections, can also boost metabolism and your immune system.

What Is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient whose primary purpose is to make red blood cells. One of the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency is anemia. The vitamin also promotes healthy brain function and DNA synthesis. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in a protein-rich diet that includes meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products, and fortified foods such as breakfast cereal.

According to the National Institutes of Health, though, at least 15% of adults have a vitamin B12 deficiency, and the number increases with age.

Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections

Vitamin injections deliver key nutritional supplements such as vitamin B12 directly into the body through the veins, where they are rapidly absorbed. This method is very effective for reversing or preventing a deficiency because it allows for 100% absorption directly into the tissues. At Rejuvime Medical, we offer once or twice-weekly injections if you have a deficiency or want to get an energy boost, improve your sleep, or get the other benefits of vitamin B12 supplements.

Supplementing your B12 levels with injections can:

  • Increase energy levels and combat fatigue
  • Speed up metabolism
  • Help improve sleep patterns
  • Increase concentration
  • Improve mood
  • Boost the immune system
  • Possibly help with hair growth or stop hair loss

Vitamin B12 is also an important part of our weight loss treatments at Rejuvime Medical. Our compounded semaglutide and lipotropic injections include vitamin B12.

Are Vitamin B12 Injections Safe?

Getting regular vitamin B12 shots—even if you’re not diagnosed with a deficiency—is safe. B12 is water-soluble, meaning it’s not stored by the body, and any excess amount gets flushed out as waste. If you get B12 shots and don’t have a deficiency, your body will use what it needs and flush the rest.

If you are deficient in vitamin B12, it can lead to health problems, including:

  • Weakened immune system
  • Cognitive decline
  • Anemia
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Reduced mobility

Low levels of vitamin B12 may contribute to bone loss, especially as you get older. Osteoporosis is a real threat to bone health, especially if you’re deficient. Vitamin B12 injections may decrease your risk of bone loss related to osteoporosis.

What Are Lipotropic Injections?

Lipotropic injections contain vitamins and nutrients that support weight loss.

Lipo B Injections

Lipo B shots combine vitamin B12 with methionine and choline, essential nutrients that boost the body’s fat-burning ability. You will notice an increase in energy levels when you use these shots and find that they help promote quick fat loss.

Lipo C Injections

Lipo C injections are lipotropic injections that include vitamin C to promote weight loss and boost immunity. The additional antioxidant properties of vitamin C also support liver health and your overall well-being.
