A deficiency of a key nutrient like B12 can become a serious health threat. The B vitamins are important in metabolic activity, meaning that they help create essential energy that is released on demand when your body needs it. This group of vitamins is also involved in making red blood cells which carry oxygen to organs throughout your body. It is important to get a sufficient amount of B12 and doing so will ensure sufficient energy to actively pursue better health, all around.

The body can typically store a significant supply of vitamin B12, but issues arise when the body is unable to properly absorb B12 because of illness or old age. Deficiencies can contribute to unhealthy weight loss and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other concerning symptoms. Extreme cases can even result in permanent nerve damage if left untreated. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that is needed by the body to maintain basic functions.

A person diagnosed with a B12 deficiency will need to supplement their diet. Our patients come to the Integrated Health Clinic to get regular B12 shots in conjunction with direction on appropriate diet and exercise. These shots are administered directly into the muscle (either in the hip or upper arm), allowing for better absorption.


Because vitamin B12 causes the metabolism to naturally speed up, effective weight loss is a favourable byproduct. But this in itself is not ideal. Injection therapy in conjunction with adopting a healthy lifestyle and whole food diet as part of a managed weight loss program, will deliver the wanted results.

Shots give a tremendous boost of energy. This generally helps people to maintain their diets and motivates them to exercise and increase physical activity. Vitamin B12 also helps to fight stress and depression, symptoms which are sometimes associated with weight gain.

While the shots can be a great benefit to some, particularly those with a B12 deficiency, there can be some negative side effects when taken excessively or along with certain other substances. There is also a risk for those who have certain pre-existing conditions. It is important to consult with Integrated Health Clinic physicians to determine if your condition is right for B12 injections.

We encourage you to visit Integrated Health Clinic to meet with our physicians and learn more about this treatment.
