A vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to various health problems, ranging from fatigue, weakness, and even permanent neurological impairments. If a person has low vitamin B12 levels due to a poor diet or an existing health condition, your GP may prescribe vitamin B12 injections. Injections allow the body to absorb vitamin B12 faster than health supplement tablets or capsules because they don’t have to go through the entire digestive to enter the bloodstream.
This article will explain what vitamin b12 injections are for and how they can benefit you.

Who Needs Vitamin B12 Injections?
Vitamin B12 deficiency is quite rare in most healthy adults because our liver stores it over time so we can maintain healthy levels. However, if you have a gastrointestinal condition such as Crohn’s Disease or Celiac Disease this can prevent your body from properly absorbing vitamin B12 from the food you eat, thus causing a deficiency. Vitamin B12 is found in animal products including meat and dairy, so if you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet it can be hard to get enough of this vitamin in your daily diet.
For this reason, vitamin B12 injections can be very beneficial to boost levels into a healthy range.
