What is B12?
B12 or cobalamin is one of the B vitamins that is essential for DNA synthesis, cell development, metabolism, red blood cell formation, and overall brain health. It is primarily found in animal sources like milk, cheese, meat, and fish but can sometimes be found in fortified grain products such as breads and cereals. B12 supplements can be given orally and by injection. However, studies show that B12 injections are more readily absorbed because they are transmitted via the muscle directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system.
How many B12 injections do I need?
The number of B12 injections needed varies depending on the clinical symptoms and the level of deficiency. Weekly injections x 4 weeks followed by an injection every 1-2 months is typically recommended to address the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency.
