Intravenous and injectable vitamins are growing in popularity, not just for use on patients who have a known deficiency for a vitamin, but due to the known benefits of receiving these vitamins straight into the bloodstream. Taking vitamins orally or relying on your digestive system to absorb all of the vitamins is not as effective as injections because a certain percentage of the vitamins will be lost through the digestive process and expelled as waste. Having the vitamin be administered into the bloodstream directly ensures that patients are able to absorb 100% of the amount administered.
By bypassing the process of absorbing vitamins that are consumed orally into the body to eventually be able to experience the benefits through the fraction of what the body was able to absorb, vitamin injections provide much faster and more effective benefits of taking vitamins. Sufficient levels of vitamin B12 in the body help to increase energy levels, and overall brain function, support a healthy metabolism, encourage better moods, and even support weight loss. They are a great option for those who suffer from a vitamin B12 deficiency or just want to improve their overall health, especially in those who are unable to consume enough vitamin B12 through diet alone or who wish to experience the benefits much more efficiently as intravenous vitamins ensure that the entirety of what is injected into the body is able to be used, unlike consuming vitamins which are not 100% absorbed into the body.
While the vitamin can start providing benefits in your body almost immediately following injection, most patients will start to notice the benefits after a few days. The alleviation of symptoms that are treated through vitamin B12 injections including fatigue and lethargy can start to be noticed after a few days and will continue to improve for multiple weeks. Those symptoms as well as weakness and feelings of depression can often be totally resolved within 6 to 12 weeks of regular vitamin B12 injections. Within this timeline of several days to several weeks after starting regular B12 injections, patients will be able to notice an increase in clarity with their general brain functioning, improving their mood and memory.
There are quite a few people who just are not able to get enough vitamin B12 without receiving it through regular injections for a multitude of reasons, most often including dietary restrictions or medical conditions. It is common for those who follow vegetarian or vegan diets to be vitamin B12 deficient the majority of the population relies on the consumption of meat in order to maintain a healthy level of vitamin B12. There are also a number of health conditions that prevent patients from being able to absorb a sufficient amount of vitamin B12 both through their diet and through vitamin supplements, making injections the only method that ensures they are not deficient. Examples of these health conditions include those with a lack of stomach acid, those who have undergone bariatric surgery, anemia caused by the inability to absorb the vitamin, other autoimmune digestive diseases, as well as several medications. A deficiency of vitamin B12 is fairly difficult to diagnose and there are quite a few variables that can lead to the deficiency or just not quite having enough of it regularly, so injections of vitamin B12 can benefit quite a few people who suffer from symptoms including brain fog, fatigue, lethargy, feelings of depression, tingling in their hands or feet, dizziness, and memory loss.
For those who suffer from a vitamin B12 deficiency, injections will likely be recommended every 10 days as a build-up phase and then will continue as a monthly treatment or to be administered every 2 to 3 months in order to completely reverse the side effects of the deficiency. If a patient without a diagnosed vitamin B12 deficiency is receiving the vitamin through regular injections to experience the multitude of benefits, the frequency of these injections can vary quite a bit depending on the reason they are getting the injections (weight loss treatments will likely have a higher frequency of vitamin injections than other treatments) and this timeline will be established by the patient and the specialist providing the injections to ensure that the treatment is both as safe and as effective as possible.
