How the Body uses Vitamin B

Vitamin B is a water-soluble vitamin, not stored in your body, so a consistent supply is crucial. Vitamin B-12 & B6 injections in Irvine can help your body to:

  • Convert carbs into sugar to provide you with an energy boost and fight fatigue.
  • Maintain heart health by regulating homocysteine.  
  • Digest fat and break down protein for use in building muscle (B6, pyridoxine).
  • Produce brain neurotransmitters that affect mood and reduce stress.

  • Ensure proper central nervous system function properly function, preventing numbness/pins-and-needles sensations, balance problems, memory issues and even dementia (B12).
  • Achieve weight loss (B12).

Why consider Vitamin B Injections?

Injections are typically absorbed faster and better by the body and this method may also be more convenient for some patients than taking daily pills. The injections can be given in the upper hip, thigh or deltoid. Your doctor should determine the proper dosage for your individual needs through nutritional testing. Treatment may begin with larger doses, up to 2000 mcg. per day temporarily, then a maintenance dose monthly, for example.
