You might have heard about the energy-boosting, fat-blasting powers of weekly B 12 with MIC injections. But what is B 12, and why are people all over Phoenix scheduling their mobile B12 injections weekly with AZ IV Medics?
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamine, is an essential water-soluble vitamin. Our body uses it for brain health, red blood cell production, and energy production. It’s known to assist with fat burning and metabolism, as well as helping to regulate appetite and sleep patterns. Deficiencies can lead to a host of issues, including pernicious anemia, depression, and cognitive decline
B12 is also one of the most common vitamin deficiencies. It’s primarily found in the modern diet in animal products, so vegans and vegetarians need to supplement with B 12 regularly. But a huge number of meat eaters are also deficient and likely don’t know it – B12 is absorbed through the stomach, and our ability to assimilate it through the stomach wall decreases with age, as well as due to any stomach issues like IBS, Crohn’s, and Celiac Disease, and medications that impact the stomach like metformin, antacids, PPIs, and ibuprofen. Many people are also genetically predisposed to having impaired B12 absorption.
Just about everyone can benefit from a B12 shot! It’s water soluble, which means it doesn’t build up in your system – once you’re at the appropriate amount for your body you will just eliminate any extra, so there’s very little risk of an overdose.
Vegans, vegetarians, people over the age 50, anyone with stomach/bowel issues like chronic gastritis, leaky gut, IBS or celiac, and anyone who regularly takes medications such as Metformin, PPIs (used for GERD), H2 Receptor Antagonists (used for peptic ulcers), or anything that interferes with stomach acid production are actually at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency, and should supplement B12 regularly.
While B12 can be taken orally, injections or IVs are really the most effective, absorbable ways to get B12 into your system. B12 is absorbed through the stomach, so if you have any stomach issues at all – or have taken many common medications – you may not be able to absorb it as effectively. B12 injections and IV treatments bypass the stomach altogether, and are already in a form your body can use, so absorption is not an issue.
Most of our clients love getting B12 weekly for things like energy & athletic gains, or if they are vegans, vegetarians or people over the age of 50 who know they are already at risk for low B12.
We also have many clients who opt for B 12 bi-weekly – generally adults between 18-50 who eat animal products regularly, but who feel the energy benefits from B12 shots and want to ensure they are never in a deficit.
AZ IV Medics offers B12 injections, and can come to you anywhere in the Phoenix area (as long as your order is $100+) We can also add your B12 to an IV drip. Many people love a B12 drip combined with other weight loss and immune system enhancing agents such as Vitamin C, glutathione and zinc. We also include B12 in our Myers’ Cocktail.
