Vitamin B12 & the Benefits

Vitamin B12 injections have become increasingly popular in the Aesthetics industry. It is administered for medical, health, and well-being purposes to promote DNA replication, boost your energy production, encourage nerve cell health, and produce new red blood cell formation and neurological function.

What is Vitamin B12?


Also known as cobalamin, Vitamin B12 provides an essential vitamin that your body can not produce itself. This vitamin can be found naturally in various animal products; however, in some cases, it is also added to specific foods. People who are Vegetarian or Vegan can benefit the most from supplementary Vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12 has multiple roles within the body; in particular, it is vital for cell development in the central nervous system (CNS) and is therefore fundamental for the normalised function of your nerve cells.

In addition, vitamin B12 is also crucial for the development of red blood cells and DNA synthesis. As well as being critical to the body’s biological processes, supplementing Vitamin B12 can improve your general well-being and physical health. B12’s essential role in boosting the metabolic function of the cells can increase energy release, improve your memory, and help prevent heart disease.

Where can you find Vitamin B12?

The human body cannot produce Vitamin B12; however, B12 can be commonly found in many animal products, including cheese, milk, eggs, fish, and poultry. You will notice some food products have Vitamin B12 specifically added to their ingredients for some food products. For example, some cereals will promote on their packaging that their grains are fortified with vitamin B12. People who have none or minimal amounts of animal products in their diet are more likely to encounter a deficiency in vitamin B12.

Why is it important?

Another crucial role of Vitamin B12 is in maintaining a healthy metabolism. The body’s metabolism can affect your energy levels, appetite and, most importantly, your weight. B12 is also vital for women during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding. If your body does not have the correct vitamin levels, you may notice that you start to feel tired, forgetful and may even become at higher risk of developing heart disease. 

How can Vitamin B12 injections benefit you? 

Vitamin B12 injections can help enhance both physical & mental health as well as emotional well-being.

  • Increases Energy Levels – decreasing the feeling of tiredness and fatigue
  • Boosts the Immune System – to support the best possible physical health
  • Boosts metabolism – helps maintain a healthy rate of fat burning and weight 
  • Improves concentration and thinking and improve sleep patterns
  • Supports Mental Well-being – helps to reduce stress and enhance emotional imbalance.
  • Encourages weight loss
  • Reduces anxiety levels
  • Lowers any risks associated with heart disease

Are Vitamin B12 injections better than taking oral supplements?

Although there are multiple benefits to taking them, and not many people know this, but the body’s natural absorption process may decide that up to 85% of the vitamin tablet is unsuitable and only extract 15% of the nutrients from the vitamin tablet to enter the bloodstream. By injecting a Vitamin B12 supplement directly into the bloodstream, you will receive a higher concentration of nutrient delivered straight to your body’s cells, allowing your body to absorb and utilise the nutrients quicker.

How long do the B12 injections last?

Typically, you will start to see a difference within 48 to 72 hours. New red blood cells will begin to form. Once B12 reserves reach normal levels, injections of vitamin B12, we recommend that you go onto a maintenance programme of needed a B12 shot every 4-5 weeks to prevent symptoms from returning.
