FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO B VITAMIN SHOTS HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
Vitamin B12 and B6 injections are great ways to increase your energy and aid in natural weight loss. Both B12 and B6 injections help your body metabolize more efficiently by speeding up the rate at which it breaks down protein, fat, and carbohydrates. B6 also aids in the conversion of glycogen to glucose, which increases the body's energy level without the need for additional carbohydrates, acting as a natural appetite suppressant. So, after the injections, you'll eat less while your body burns more calories. It's no surprise that you'll lose weight faster.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES A B12 SHOT FROM AN ORAL SUPPLEMENT?
Many individuals struggle with absorbing nutrients from supplements or food because of intestinal inflammation, poor gut health, or a lack of intrinsic factors— such as the glycoprotein produced in the stomach that is required for B12 absorption. Injecting nutrients intramuscularly eschews this problem by delivering nutrients directly to the cells, instantly feeding your body for immediate utilization.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE THE RESULTS?
Most people notice results almost immediately. Patients' increased energy and general sense of strength frequently inspire them to intensify their exercise regimen and promote further weight loss. Restoring healthy B12 levels in the body is often a very noticeable sensation, and patients can expect a much faster metabolism within a few days. The overwhelming positive effects of B12 injections have made them a popular choice for men and women alike.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM B12 VITAMIN SHOTS?
Due to their lack of consumption of meat and dairy products, vegetarians and vegans frequently have low B12 levels. People who have had any type of gastrointestinal surgery or weight loss surgery are also at risk because reduced stomach volume means less absorption. Other conditions that can cause B12 deficiency include anemia, celiac disease, and other auto-immune conditions.
IS BLOOD WORK REQUIRED BEFORE RECEIVING A B-VITAMIN SHOT?
Although blood work is not required, you can always get an inexpensive routine test to check the amount of cobalamin in your blood. It is important to note, however, that these tests are not the most accurate way to determine your vitamin levels. If you're concerned about any specific health condition, your doctor can ask for a methylmalonic acid (MMA) to properly measure the amount of B12 vitamin stored in your body.
