B-12 Program

Many B-Vitamins help your body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock.

B12 injections are typically used as a treatment for a certain type of anemia. In this type of anemia, people lack intrinsic factor in the stomach which is necessary for the absorption of the vitamin. They are most effective when taken at regular intervals. A regular schedule to receive the injections can be customized to each individual.

What is vitamin B-12?

Vitamin B-12 is an essential vitamin that plays a major role in maintaining good health throughout life. Although the vitamin is found naturally in foods, studies have found many people are deficient in B-12, which is essential for brain and nervous system health. Vitamin B-12 is also important for metabolism, the process the body uses to convert food to usable energy, and low levels can interfere with weight loss programs and diet. Because the body cannot synthesize vitamin B-12 on its own, supplementation can play an important role in maintaining optimal health for many patients.
 
 

What causes vitamin B-12 deficiency?

While low levels of vitamin B-12 can result from poor dietary choices, deficiency can also occur as a result of:
 
  • irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
  • pernicious anemia, a condition that interferes with the body's ability to absorb the vitamin
  • weight-loss surgery that decreases the body's ability to absorb nutrients
  • prolonged use of heartburn medications
  • problems with the immune system
  • alcohol abuse
  • older age
  • following a vegetarian diet
 
 

What symptoms does B-12 deficiency cause?

Vitamin B-12 deficiency cause:
  • heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat
  • dizziness
  • shortness breath
  • weakness
  • fatigue
  • diarrhea, constipation or bloating
  • loss of vision
  • numbness or tingling
  • Vitamin B-12 deficiency can also cause anemia, a serious medical issue that can decrease the amount of oxygen reaching organs and tissues throughout the body.
 
 

Are vitamin B-12 shots better than oral supplements?

Vitamin B-12 shots are designed to be more effective than oral supplements because they deliver the vitamin directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system which can cause the vitamin to break down and lose its potency. Delivering the vitamin directly to the bloodstream is also important where nutrient absorption is an issue.
 
 

How often should I have vitamin B-12 shots?

The frequency and number of shots vary from one patient to another. Blood testing can determine if vitamin B-12 deficiency is present as well as determine the best course of treatment based on the patient's specific needs.
 
 

Benefits of Fat Burner Injection (MIC)

Fat Burner Injections enhance liver function to speed up the removal of fat. Amino Acids in injection help to mobilize fat from fat cells, provide fuel for energy and help suppress hunger
 
 

Methionine:

As an amino acid, Methionine acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat build-up in the liver and the body. It is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue. It may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces the release of histamines

Inositol:

This nutrient in the B vitamin complex is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol is converted by the body to a substance that regulates the action of serotonin within brain cells. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter chemical that plays an important role in regulating mood and appetite

Choline:

Supports liver health by its processing and excreting chemical waste products. This amino acid is essential in its support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
