B-Complex Injections Q & A

What are B-Complex injections?

B-Complex shots, also called cobalamin injections, have often been used to treat people with acute anemia which results from a deficiency of this vitamin. Typically, the B vitamins are not easily absorbed by the body, but when consumed with green vegetables such as broccoli and/or spinach, the absorption rate is enhanced. Since Vitamin B-Complex is not readily absorbed by the human body, people easily become deficient in it. Consequently, regular and sustained intake of Vitamin B is necessary and recommended. B-Complex supplements can be taken in various forms such as a pill or a nasal spray.  The clinicians at Pro-Care administer B-Complex injections. They are quick, safe, effective, and painless. These injections are mostly done in the arm but they can also be administered elsewhere.

What do B-Complex injections help with?

These shots are very effective for treating skin diseases, reducing stress levels, acting as energy boosters, and also in weight loss programs. For example, B12 is believed to increase energy levels and boost metabolism which can aid in weight loss. This can be especially helpful for patients with type 2 diabetes. One of the side effects a drug frequently prescribed to diabetes patients has is vitamin B12 deficiency. These injections can help to maintain sufficient B12 levels. If a patient does opt for these injections, he or she should ensure that their doctor is aware of all other medications currently being taken. High levels of the B-complex vitamins can interact with some medications. Other key benefits for B-complex injections include:

  • Improved liver function
  • Increases red blood cell production, reducing chance of anemia
  • Protects nerves by stimulating myelin production
  • Helps to produce serotonin, one of the “feel good” chemicals in the brain
  • Allergy prevention
  • Hypothyroid support
  • Improves memory
