What are vitamin B12 shots?

Vitamin B12 shots are injections that a medical professional may prescribe to treat a vitamin B12 deficiency, especially if a person's body has difficulty absorbing the vitamin. Vitamin B12 shots are a form of subjunction that contains a synthetic form of vitamin B12, or cyanocobalamin.

A deficiency in vitamin B12 can lead to various health problems, ranging from fatigue to permanent neurological changes.

How do B12 injections work? 

Instead of being processed through the digestive system as would happen if were ingested in pill form, B12 shots skip the digestive system as they enter the bloodstream directly. This makes B12 injections the most absorptive form of the vitamin. Usually, a person notices an increase in stamina within a couple of days of the first injection. That is also when your health practitioner will know if this route is viable for you or not.

B12 injections are administered like any other injection, typically in the thickest part of the upper arm muscles.
B12 shots are generally considered safe and may be recommended if you have a lab-confirmed deficiency. The frequency of how often you have to take the shot will depend on the level of deficiency.

What are the benefits of B12 injections?
