B12 (Cobalamin): Gives the body a boost of energy for weeks. It also plays an important part in the production of red blood cells.
- More energy, mental alertness, and stamina for everyday tasks
- Healthier immune systems
- Improves sleep
- Increases metabolism, thereby aiding in weight loss
- Reduces allergies, stress, and depression
- Improves mood stabilization
- Lessens frequency and severity of migraines and headaches
- Helps lower homocysteine levels in the blood, thereby reducing the probability of diseases and stroke
B12 injections are typically used as a treatment for pernicious anemia. In this type of anemia, people lack an intrinsic factor in the stomach which is necessary for the absorption of the vitamin.
Vegetarians (especially vegans) are also given injections of B12 since their diet is low in animal products, the primary source of B12.
People with chronic fatigue or anemia require monthly injections of vitamin B12 mostly because the oral form is not dependable.
Vitamin B12 injections are most effective when taken at regular intervals (usually monthly). A regular schedule to receive the injections can be customized to each individual.
The body’s ability to absorb vitamin B12 is reduced with increasing age. Older people are often detected to have a more potent vitamin B12 deficiency, even in cases where they do not suffer from pernicious anemia.
Deficiency of vitamin B12 can lead to abnormal neurologic and psychiatric symptoms including ataxia (shaky movements and unsteady gait), muscle weakness, spasticity, incontinence, hypotension, vision problems, dementia, psychoses, and mood disturbances.
B12 Possible Side Effects and Contraindications
- A B12 shot is safe and generally has no side effects, even in higher doses.
- Some redness and swelling may occur at the injection site may occur. This will resolve within 48 hours.
- In rare cases, B12 can cause diarrhea, peripheral vascular thrombosis, itching, transitory exanthema (rash), urticaria (hives), or feelings of swelling of the whole body.
- Sensitivity to cobalt and/or cobalamin is a contraindication.
People with chronic liver and/or kidney dysfunction should not take frequent B12 injections. If you have not checked your blood work recently, we ask that you get a complete blood workup as soon as possible.
Interactions with drugs: Chloramphenicol can impede on the red blood cell producing properties of B12.
Other drugs that decrease or reduce absorption of B12: antibiotics, cobalt irradiation, colchicine, colestipol, H-2 blockers, metformin, nicotine, birth control pills, potassium chloride, proton pump inhibitors, such as Prevacid, Losec, Aciphex, Pantaloc, and Zidovudine.
B12 is contraindicated in Leber’s disease, a hereditary optic nerve atrophic condition.
B12 c MI injections contain supplements that are used for fat loss. They are intended to complement other aspects of a weight loss regimen, including exercise and a low-calorie diet
B12 c MI can help support energy levels, help build lean muscle mass, and even help initiate modest weight loss. For some, it can help to jump-start weight loss.
For patients looking to help push beyond a sticking point in their health goals, short-term B12 c MI use might be appropriate. For others looking for a longer-term solution, the B12 c MI formulation can be used along with other weight loss strategies, including our weight loss injection SEMAGLUTIDE.
B12 c MI Components and Benefits:
- Leucine: Although an essential amino acid, the human body does not produce Leucine. It is found in high-protein foods such as chicken, beef, dairy, fish, and eggs. This protein-rich amino acid helps your body lose body fat, yet maintain your muscle mass. You’ll also have a decreased need for calories, which helps reduce your cravings for snacks. This increases your energy levels. Leucine also is shown to help stabilize the blood sugar levels, which is excellent for those with type 2 diabetes.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is for more than building a healthy immune system. This super antioxidant fights free radicals and helps lower your body’s overall fat, especially in your stomach and abdomen areas. Vitamin C helps speed up your body’s metabolism. Without sufficient Vitamin C, your body stores excess fat and never uses it. Those deficient in Vitamin C, who regularly exercise, will notice a dramatic decrease in body fat if they receive the Vitamin C they need.
- Chromium: Chromium aids in your body’s natural ability to produce insulin. Insulin is a critical component of keeping fat levels stable. Chromium is a mineral found in many foods. However, it’s stripped due to all the processes that foods go through. Although it’s not too difficult to obtain the Chromium levels you need, the Lipolean injection helps give you the energizing boost you need to start melting fat away.
- L-Carnitine: L-Carnitine is a powerful amino acid that supports fat loss, reduces fatigue, increases your energy levels, suppresses your appetite, improves brain function, maintains a healthy heart, and supports healthy muscle movement. It also combats free radicals. L-Carnitine’s key role in the human body’s functionality is to transpose fat into fuel that you can use for energy.
- Vitamin D: Vitamin D is well known to help strengthen bones. However, recent research does show it promotes a healthy heart and increase your ability to focus, as well as controls blood sugar. It protects you against certain cancers, auto-immune diseases, fatigue, muscle aches, and mild depression. Studies also show that those with a Vitamin D deficiency find it difficult to obtain the weight loss they want. In fact, many people who are overweight are deficient in Vitamin D.
- Methionine: Works with choline to detoxify amines and acts like a catalyst for choline and inositol, opening up their function. It is also a great detoxifier as it aids in removing liver fat and protects the kidneys.
- Inositol: Deficiency in this can lead to hair loss. Inositol works with Vitamin E to aid in the actions in the treatment of muscular dystrophy.
- B1 (Thiamine): Helps your body to utilize carbohydrates for energy. It is also important for normal function of your heart, muscles, and nervous system.
- B2 (Riboflavin): Aids in metabolism and the conversion of food into energy; helps produce red blood cells.
- B3 (Niacin): Assists fin digestion and the conversion of food into energy. It is important in the production of cholesterol.
- B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Important in fatty acid metabolism.
- B6: Important for the nervous system. It aids the body in metabolizing proteins and sugar.
- B12 (Cobalamin): Gives the body a boost of energy for weeks. It also plays and important part in the production of red blood cells.
