Vitamin injections are a great way to boost your own vitamin levels especially if you have a deficiency or difficulty absorbing nutrients via the gut. There are many benefits of Vitamin B12 injection therapy. Here are some of our favorites here at EmPower U: -- 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 heart diseases and stroke This service may be an add on therapy to an office visit or a standalone appointment. You might need to complete a health screen prior to receiving B12 injections if you are not an established EmPower U patient. Some other conditions or situations where B12 may be indicated. -- Treatment for a certain type of anemia (pernicious anemia). -- Vegetarians (especially vegans) since their diet is low in animal products, the primary source of B12. -- People with chronic fatigue or anemia. Vitamin B12 shots are most effective when taken at regular intervals (usually weekly or 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 anaemia. 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. Ask your doctor or ask Dr. Emma if a Vitamin B12 injection is appropriate for you.
