Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin. It plays a critical role in our DNA production, red blood cell production, and brain function. Vitamin B12 exists in the body in different forms and is stored for long periods of time, so identifying a deficiency can take years of observation.
Many people are currently deficient in vitamin B12 as animal food products are more commonly phased out of diets and replacement vitamin supplements are not actively provided. Others are deficient due to a missing or inactive stomach protein that is required for vitamin B12 absorption.
What Are Vitamin Shots?
Vitamin B12 injections provide your body with the amount of B12 it needs to operate fully and as beautifully as you intend, every day. Vitamin B12 shots provide a wide range of benefits, from increased energy to protecting your eyesight as you get older.
Benefits of vitamin B12 boosts:
- Boost brain function
- Relieve symptoms of depression
- Improve bone mass and reduce the loss of bone mass
- Maintain optimal vision and protect against age-related macular degeneration
- Supplement a vegetarian and vegan diet

Who Is a Candidate?
The most obvious candidate for B12 injections is someone on a vegan or vegetarian diet who is not yet aware of all the dietary ways to receive additional B12 (which is most abundant in animal products). However, anyone is susceptible to vitamin B12 deficiency, so check in with your doctor to find out if you could benefit from injections.
