B12 Supplementation

Vitamin B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meat, eggs, and dairy products. It plays an important role in protein, DNA synthesis, fatty acid synthesis and energy production. More specifically, it is essential for the normal functioning of the brain, nervous system, and the formation of blood.

A deficiency of B-12 is difficult to develop in a healthy individual who eats some red meat because the liver stores up to a year of B-12 and the levels can easily be checked with a simple blood test. However, many feel a distinct improvement in their sense of wellbeing and increased energy level with supplementation despite no deficiency.

At YBI, we offer the B-12 injections. After a brief history and evaluation to make sure that it is safe for you, you may receive your B-12 injection the same day.

Please call the office if you have any further questions and we will be happy to discuss your concerns.
