Whether you realize it or not, B12 is a critical vitamin involved in very important processes in your body like energy production and metabolism. It’s currently estimated that as many as 50% of people in the US have B12 deficiency or suboptimal B12 (1) levels in their body.
This means that as many as 1 out of 2 people are walking around with sub-optimal energy levels and a slower than normal metabolism. It’s no wonder that many patients who use B12 shots experience many benefits that range from increased energy to weight loss and even better sleeping patterns.

WHY SHOT VS JUST TAKING VIT B12 ORALLY?
How much of the Vitamin B12 absorbed depends on the health of your stomach lining. Many people do not have the healthiest stomachs due to processed foods and toxin build up. The stomach decides how much it will absorb and the rest is excreted in urine. By receiving B12 in a shot form, it goes directly into the blood stream.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET VIT B12 SHOTS?
Weekly shots are preferred for maximum effect, but you can also schedule them bi-weekly or even monthly. It may take a few shots to feel the effects longer term, but you will notice some increase in energy and better sleep within the same day of receiving the shot.
HOW MUCH ARE VIT B12 SHOTS?
B12 shots are each $35. You may also purchase a package of B12 shots for some savings.
