Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is one of the eight B vitamins that all humans require. It has many critical functions throughout the body, including producing red blood cells and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 deficiency, which can be caused by insufficient dietary intake or certain health conditions, can lead to a variety of symptoms affecting the nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and other areas of the body. However, it can be treated through supplementation and vitamin B12 IV therapy.
What is a Vitamin B12 shot?
A vitamin B12 injection, also called a cobalamin shot or bolus, is often recommended for patients with pernicious anemia (which occurs when your stomach does not properly produce intrinsic factors). When you consume food containing vitamin B-12, it combines with intrinsic factors so that you can absorb it into your bloodstream. Your body needs B-12 because it aids in healthy nerve function and helps form DNA. It is also crucial for making red blood cells.
This vitamin helps to improve blood circulation, which benefits your cardiovascular system, bones, and nerves. Unfortunately, our body doesn’t produce or store enough of it; therefore, it needs to be replenished on a regular basis.
There are numerous reasons that you might need to get vitamin B12 injections. If you suffer from anemia or have Crohn’s disease, it’s vital for your health. Aside from these medical reasons, many people undergo vitamin B12 injections to boost their energy levels and help them stay focused. Because of its importance for various body functions, it is crucial that you receive adequate amounts of it regularly.
