Vitamin B12 Injections
Invigorate your life
Vitamin B12 injections at Sovereign Male are a fast, natural way to invigorate your life. People of all ages find themselves suffering symptoms of B12 deficiency, and the power of the B-shot does wonders to rejuvenate them.
Vitamin B12 injection: Why do some people need it?
Your age, certain prescription medications, or a lack of meat in your diet could all affect the balance of your essential vitamins. Symptoms of B12 deficiency are broad and universal, so the best way to zero in on your issue is to meet with one of our experienced doctors for free, personalized advice.
You may have heard about the near-instant recharge that a vitamin B12 injection can provide. It’s one of our most popular health and wellness services at Sovereign Male. Are you a man who could use more energy, strength, vigour, and mental alertness? Your diet alone may not be supplying or utilizing B12 properly, and everything from memory to muscle strength might suffer.
Thankfully, there are a few different ways to improve diagnosed vitamin B12 deficiency. We’ll be happy to provide you with dietary and lifestyle recommendations after in-depth, personalized analysis. We also offer the B-shot, and our clients love it.
Vitamin B12 injection candidates: Consider the common signs of deficiency
Dizziness or vertigo can signal that your vitamin B12 stores are low. People notice dizziness most often when they change positions or stand up quickly. Chronic vertigo or dizziness should be brought to your doctor’s attention so you can be tested for B12 deficiency or other health issues.
Pins, needles, and numbness
Numbness, commonly in the hands or lips, and pins and needles throughout the body might indicate a B12 issue. Low oxygen due to reduced red blood cell production may accompany low iron as well.
People with a B12 deficiency often show a change in complexion due to lack of red blood cells. Regardless of your skin colour, healthy vibrancy and pink undertones can fade to ashy, yellow, or blueish.
Many patients with a B12 deficiency become concerned about their increasing forgetfulness. Before jumping to conclusions, get checked for vitamin deficiencies if you suffer from memory loss.
If you’re tired throughout the day, even after a good night’s sleep, you may have a B12 deficiency. When B12-dependent oxygen transport to your tissues is insufficient, fatigue sets in.
Low B12 can lead to vision changes, often beginning with blurriness and spots in the visual field.
B12 helps oxygenate the organs and muscles. The same way people feel weaker when they have a cold or flu, they lose muscle strength if they are in need of a vitamin B12 injection.
A smooth tongue
Up to ½ of people with a B12 deficiency lose taste buds and develop a smooth, swollen, and reddened tongue. The inflammation is known as glossitis.
Vitamin B12 may affect an individual’s mood, leading to irritability or signs of depression. B12 is integral to the production of serotonin and dopamine. Combine this deficiency with a testosterone imbalance, and a man’s mood could be way off. Let us assess you for free to help you get back on track.
There are numerous reasons for digestive issues, and one of them relates to vitamin B12. When your blood is unable to carry oxygen to your tissues, symptoms of nausea, diarrhea, or constipation occur.
B-12 deficiency can sometimes lead to anemia. One symptom of pernicious anemia is heart palpitations.
Shortness of breath
Another symptom of low B 12 is feeling like you can’t catch your breath. Deficient red blood cells and hemoglobin impair oxygen distribution throughout your body. That oxygen hunger leads to shortness of breath.
A vitamin B12 deficiency can affect your balance. Given the symptoms of dizziness and muscle weakness, that’s no surprise, but it can be very concerning.
Skin, hair, & nail changes
Vitiligo can be triggered by low B12, as can acne, dermatitis, greying or thinning hair, and many more skin-related concerns.
What could be causing your low B12?
Many of the reasons men why develop vitamin B12 deficiency are out of their control. For instance, age can make it difficult for the body to absorb B12, and this amplifies after 50.
Other possible causes of vitamin B12 deficiency include thinning of the stomach lining and a host of related conditions affecting digestion.
Likewise, if you consume a high amount of alcohol, you may be limiting how much vitamin B12 is absorbed from food through digestion. Alcohol irritates the mucosal lining in your stomach and intestines, which leads to diminished acid production and reduced B12 absorption.
Vegetarians and vegans are vulnerable because most dietary B vitamins come from animal products. The reasons for a B12 deficiency usually narrow down to inadequate supply or poor absorption. Vegetarians and, in particular, vegans often have a supply problem.
If you take prescription medications, note that some of them depress your ability to absorb vitamin B12.
What food can increase your B12 naturally?
If you think that you’re not getting enough vitamin B12, there are safe, simple ways you can alter your diet to boost that B12 and a whole lot of other vital nutrients. This critical B vitamin is found in most dairy, eggs, Swiss cheese, yogourt, salmon, sardines, and organ meats like liver and kidney. If you’re a vegan, it’s a great idea to talk with a trusted physician about supplementation. The vitamin B12 injection can ensure that you’re getting what you need and are feeling your best.
Vitamin B12 injections: How often should you get them, and how quickly do you feel the effects?
The benefits of vitamin B12 shots are numerous and can be felt nearly instantly! Methylcobalamin is an active form of B12 and is readily absorbed. People often ask, do vitamin B12 injections really work? And are B12 injections painful?
We think you’ll be impressed that the process is very straightforward, comfortable, and takes only a few minutes. If you don’t like needles, you’re not alone, but we can assure you that we make this treatment positive, quick, and as painless as possible. The vitamins are injected in the thick arm muscle or hip with one thin needle.
It helps to be in a welcoming, comforting environment, and many of our clients say that the treatment is surprisingly positive. You’ll begin to feel energized within just 10 to 15 minutes, which is also an appreciated bonus.
Are there vitamin B12 injection side effects?
When you meet without doctors at Sovereign Male, your consultation will cover everything you need to know before vitamin B12 injection treatment. That includes the benefits and risks, plus possible side effects. Rarely, vitamin B12 injections can cause digestive upset, inflammation at the injection site, or a strange taste in the mouth. We’ll ensure that you know exactly what to expect and how to report any concerns after your treatment.
