B12 & B Vitamin Intramuscular Injections

What is B Vitamin Intramuscular Injections?

B Vitamin injections are intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of B vitamins for the treatment of a variety of health concerns. These injections can be single or combined doses of B12, B6, Folic Acid and B-Complex.

What are they used for?

B complex vitamins are an effective way to increase B vitamin levels rapidly. They can be valuable when we want to achieve a therapeutic effect that requires getting higher amounts of the vitamin into the circulation than what is achievable through oral supplementation. Injections are often useful when a digestive concern, like Crohn’s disease or Celiac disease, prevents adequate absorption from dietary or supplemental sources.

Our Naturopathic Physicians routinely give B vitamin shots to our clients as needed. They are extremely safe and cause only temporary local, and typically mild, discomfort.
