“B-12 Shots” typically contain B-12 and all the B-Complex vitamins. Vitamin shots are used to help fight fatigue and mood disorders in those that are genetically predisposed, elderly, stressed, don’t absorb nutrients well or have a poor diet. Patient with fatigue, depression, memory impairment, alcoholism, addiction disorders, diabetic neuropathy, sciatica, autism, chronic pain and impaired detoxification may benefit from weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly injections.
Coffee, alcohol, toxins, and stress rapidly deplete these nutrients. The B-vitamins also have the added benefit of helping hair and nails grow quickly and strong. Although these injections have very few side effects or drug interactions please let your doctor know about any allergies, medications, changes in health before the injection.
We only use the finest ingredients in our injections, and the more biologically active form of B-12 called Methylcobalamin, not the cheaper and toxic form of B-12 called Cyanocobalamin.
B-1: Thiamin need increases with age and alcohol use. The nervous system depends heavily on B-1, and it is especially needed to metabolize carbohydrates in the brain. Thiamin is used therapeutically to treat Anemia, Depression, Diabetic Neuropathy, Sciatica, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Glaucoma, Insomnia, Neurosis and Anxiety. Signs of thiamin deficiency include mental confusion, anorexia, muscle weakness, calf pain, constipation, indigestion, rapid or irregular heart beat.
B-2: Riboflavin is used by the body to produce energy in the form of ATP, as well as niacin, and folic acid. Antibiotics, birth control pills and prescription hormones deplete the body of B-2. Deficiency symptoms include skin rashes, enlarged tongue, itchy eyes, sensitivity to light, hair loss, anemia, neuropathy, pre-cataracts, and seborrheic dermatitis, or flakey scalp. Riboflavin is used therapeutically to treat Acne Rosacea, Anemia, Cataracts, Depression, and Migraine Headaches.
B-3: Niacin is vital for the production of energy, fatty acids and steroids, as well as the detoxification of alcohol. Alcohol intake depletes niacin. Deficiency results in dermatitis, diarrhea, dementia, and death. Niacin is used therapeutically to treat Osteoarthritis, High Cholesterol, Anxiety, Multiple Sclerosis, Bell’s Palsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Tardive Dyskinesia, Type I Diabetes, Insomnia, Menstrual Cramps, Migraines, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Alcoholism, Acne, Alzheimers, and Smoking Cessation.
B-5: Pantothenic Acid deficiency causes fatigue, hair loss, premature gray hair, mood disorders, attention disorders and slow healing. B5 is important in converting hormones and carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy.
B-6: Pyridoxine is needed primarily for detoxification and to form neurotransmitters that boost mood such as serotonin, and norepinephrine. The body depends on B-6 for energy production and the development of the myelin sheath surrounding nerves required for nerve conduction. Signs of deficiency are depression, nausea, vomiting, mouth lesions, dandruff, neuropathy, clumsiness, instability, irritability, decreased concentration, seizures, tics, and convulsions. B-6 is frequently used to treat PMS, Nausea, Carpal Tunnel, Seizures, Depression, Asthma, Acne, Dementia, and Diabetic Neuropathy.
B-12: Methylcobalamin deficiency causes anemia, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, depression, confusion, memory loss, psychosis, enlargement tongue, and decreased immune system. B-12 is used for treating Allergies, Asthma, Pernicious Anemia, Canker Sores, Hepatitis, Herpes, Psoriasis, Dandruff, Acne, Diabetic Neuropathy, Chronic Neurological Pain, Fatigue, Dementia, Heart Disease, Smoking Cessation, Bone Spurs, Bursitis, and Osteoporosis.
