Perfect for anyone that needs an energy boost, but doesn’t have the time for an infusion. Busy Bees, Working Moms and Dads, Athletes and Students love the B12 Injection. B12 also improves focus and boosts the immune system. Some even say it can enhance mood and slow aging. B12 is vital to red blood cell production and nerve health. There is no doubt B12 is an essential nutrient for life. At the Injection and Infusion Clinic of ABQ, we use an ACTIVATED form of B12 called methylcobalamin or hydroxycobalamin. We never use cyanacobalamin. Not only does this form have cyanide, it is an extremely inefficient form for the body to actually use. B12 is found in meat, fish and dairy, so if you aren’t a vegetarian you probably get plenty in your diet. However, B12 absorption naturally declines with age…because the production of intrinsic factor in our stomach declines. Bummer. B12 absorption is also affected by any digestive problem, alcohol, smoking, inflammation and illness. Also, if you are extra stressed, B12 quickly becomes depleted.
