B12 injections are shots that contain high doses of the Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential Vitamin that is crucial for metabolic and hormonal functions. It also carries important nutrients into and out of cells. At Pound Melters we use the most active B12 form, called Methylcobalamin. It is injected into the arm (deltoid muscle). The B12 injection goes into the muscle, which bypasses the entire GI system and is slowly absorbed by the blood over time circulating into the body in a more efficacious manner.
Possible benefits of B12 Injections:
May give you an energy boost
May improve memory and concentration
May help with fatigue
Helps with red blood cell formation and anemia prevention
May support bone health
From time to time, Pound Melters has received requests for other services from our patients. Some of the requests have been at the extreme fringes of having any possible benefit; some have even been potentially harmful. Pound Melters has over the years resisted providing services that are not proven or tested over time. We are intent on “keeping it real” providing only services that have the greatest efficacy.
In the 24 years of serving our patients, we have never had such an overwhelming demand for service as we have had for B12 injections. So many patients have asked for B12 injections, and let us know that they have had great results from them that we could not ignore them. Since vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin and any excess that isn’t used is flushed from the body the risk is minimized. Therefore, we decided to add B12 injections as one of our services and it has been received with an overwhelmingly positive response. At Pound Melters we are always listening! We will continue to bring on new services as the results are proven to be positive, and the risks are proven to be negligible.
