Vitamin B12 is critical for the human body. It is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. At Creative Laser, we provide vitamin B12 injections for our patients.
What does vitamin B12 do?
Vitamin B12 is the largest and most complex of all the vitamins. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and blood cells needed when initially creating DNA.
Vitamin B12 is bound to protein in food, is stored in the liver, and is in most proteins we consume including dairy, meat, and eggs. Cobalt is contained in vitamin B12. This metal ion works together with pyridoxine and folic acid to turn carbohydrates, fats, and protein from food into energy for your cells, increasing your metabolism and helping to burn calories and fat.
Vitamin b12 deficiency can be very serious. Side effects are elevated rates of DNA damage, general weakness, loss of balance, links to cancer, depression, and anemia. The elderly are the most susceptible to vitamin B12 deficiency, as well as strict vegetarians.

So, what do vitamin B12 shots do? They help reduce stress, give the patient healthier skin, increase energy levels, and help in weight loss by elevating metabolism. If you are feeling low on energy, are always very physically active, or just feel you need a boost, a vitamin B12 injection could help you.
Of the other available delivery methods — by mouth, nasal spray, and patch — injections are superior because the vitamin is placed directly into your bloodstream so the body has instant and complete access to it.
