While it’s no secret that B vitamins are critical to our health and well-being, many of us don’t realize that we’re not getting enough of them.

The eight crucial B vitamins work together as a team. Some of them help cells burn fats and glucose for energy, while others help with the production of serotonin. B vitamins work intricately together behind the scenes with amazing results. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved mood
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Reduced PMS symptoms
  • Improved memory

Supplementation with B vitamins plays a crucial role in the regulation of our physiology.  They can be taken orally, intravenously or intramuscularly.  People who are unable to absorb these vitamins in their digestive tract do particularly well with them injected directly into the bloodstream or intramuscularly as high concentrations of water-soluble vitamins can be achieved when bypassing the digestive tract.

Many people who are deficient in B-12 find great success with injectable B12 in methylated form. This crucial B vitamin is important for DNA synthesis, red and white blood cell development, and the secretion of melatonin in the brain.  B12 is essential for adrenal hormone synthesis, promotion of nerve growth, and keeping inflammatory homocysteine levels in check. Normal levels of B12 are associated with feelings of well-being, increased energy and decreased anxiety. 

Thankfully, vitamin B12 injections are safe, almost painless, and very effective.
