VITAMIN B12 is a powerhouse nutrient that improves a wide variety of health impairments, including boosting your immune system. It does this by keeping your metabolism working at a high efficiency to enable the maximum absorption of all essential vitamins and minerals from your diet to keep the immune system topped up and functioning well, and thus providing you protection on a daily basis.

Ageing means that we absorb less Vitamin B12 from food. It is estimated that 85% of us are not getting the necessary amount of B12 from our diet, which can cause severe and irreversible damage. Levels only slightly lower than recommended can cause symptoms such as fatigue, poor memory, breathlessness, headaches, and pale skin. In extreme cases Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause symptoms of mania and psychosis.

Vitamin B12 is not commonly found in a plant-based diet, therefore vegetarians and vegans are particularly susceptible to a B12 deficiency.

How is it administered?

Vitamin B12 shots are most effective when taken at regular intervals, and we recommend one injection weekly for 4 weeks, followed by one injection per month for maximum benefits.


How long will the effects last?

This depends on your response to the treatment and the Vitamin B12 levels in your blood.

Does it hurt?

The injection is given into a muscle known as an intramuscular injection. You may have some pain, swelling or itching where you have had the injection. This is usually mild and will wear off quite quickly.

When will i feel better?

B12 injections start to work straight away. However, it may take a few days or weeks before your vitamin B12 levels and symptoms (such as extreme tiredness or lack of energy) start to improve.
