What is B12?
What is B12?
Methylcobalamin, or vitamin B12 Injections, is a B-vitamin. It is found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meats, and dairy products. Although methylcobalamin and vitamin B12 are terms used interchangeably, vitamin B12 is also available as hydroxocobalamin, a less commonly prescribed drug product. Methylcobalamin is used to treat pernicious anemia and vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin found in the foods such as meat, eggs, and dairy products, but sometimes our stomachs do not absorb it well.
Deficiency in healthy individuals is rare; the elderly, strict vegetarians (i.e., vegan), and patients with malabsorption problems are more likely to become deficient. If vitamin B12 deficiency is not treated with a vitamin B12 supplement, then anemia, intestinal problems, and irreversible nerve damage may occur.
The most chemically complex of all the vitamins, methylcobalamin is a water-soluble, organometallic compound with a trivalent cobalt ion bound inside a corrin ring which, although similar to the porphyrin ring found in heme, chlorophyll, and cytochrome, has two of the pyrrole rings directly bonded. The central metal ion is Co (cobalt). Methylcobalamin cannot be made by plants or by animals; the only type of organisms that have the enzymes required for the synthesis of methylcobalamin are bacteria and archaea. Higher plants do not concentrate methylcobalamin from the soil, making them a poor source of the substance as compared with animal tissues.

What To Expect
Before booking your infusion, you will need to have a brief consultation with our nurse practitioner to discuss your concerns and goals. At this time, please notify our staff of any allergies or medical conditions you have, as well as any medications you are taking.
For the duration of your appointment, you will be seated in a comfortable, quiet room to yourself. To start the infusion process, we will apply a tourniquet to the upper arm or forearm to find a vein, and then we'll clean the skin with rubbing alcohol. A small needle will then be inserted to hook you up to the IV line.
The rate at which the bag empties through the IV into the body varies, but generally, the whole process takes 30–45 minutes. This means you can be in and out of our clinic within your lunch hour.
After Your Appointment
IV vitamin infusions give nutrients a direct path into the body’s tissues for increased benefits and effects. Unlike digesting oral supplements, this ensures that 100% of the active ingredients are absorbed into the bloodstream. This also means the body can immediately utilize the nutrients so you may start feeling the positive effects before your appointment is even over!
When receiving an infusion, you can rest assured knowing you’re getting the exact dosage of the nutrients you have been prescribed. In some cases, however, you may need more than one session to get the desired results.
If you’re treating a chronic condition or if you want ongoing exercise recovery boosts, then talk to us about booking regular appointments.
