What is Vitamin B12?
While it is only one vitamin in a long list of vitamins and minerals that your body requires, vitamin B12 plays a major role in the proper function and development of the brain, blood cells, nerves and other parts of the body.
Not having enough vitamin B12 in your diet can disrupt some of these processes. While some people experience no symptoms as a result of insufficient vitamin B12 levels, others can have multiple symptoms such as:
- Improper balance
- Memory issues
- Numbness or tingling sensation in some parts of the body
Why Choose Vitamin B12 Injections at Optimum Health?
While vitamin B12 is often available over the counter in pills, powders and chewable tablets, these forms often contain inactive “filler” ingredients that have no direct benefit to your body. Additionally, these forms are often not absorbed properly by the body, causing you to not receive as much of the vitamin as you should.
With medically-supervised B12 injections at Optimum Health, the vitamin is delivered directly where it is needed, and in dosages that are safe for the individual. It is possible to overdose on vitamins, which can be detrimental to your overall health.
During your consultation, our medical team will assess your health, medical history and individual condition to determine the level of vitamin B12 you should be achieving. We will also create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve this level safely.
Are There Any Side Effects?
While vitamin B12 is safe when administered in this form, regular treatment can react negatively with contraindicating medical conditions and some medications. Providing an accurate medical history to our medical team will ensure that the best course of treatment is created for you.
Results may vary from patient to patient, but vitamin B12 injections are a common treatment with positive results for the majority of patients. Contact Optimum Physicians Healthcare today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out if you are a candidate for vitamin B12 injections.
