B 12 has many functions in the body and the health benefits of B12 are significant when given as an injection. B12 has been shown to help with detoxification as all fat soluble toxic chemicals require B12 to be cleaned from the body. B 12 is though of as a "happy vitamin" and actually works to help produce Serotonin - This is one of the chemicals produced in your brain that helps you stay positive and is often referred to as a "feel good" chemical. Integrative medicine can help you feel good on the inside and out!
Your liver is your bodies detoxifying organ and uses B12 to process fatty and amino acids used in the elimination of toxins. B12 injections are also helpful for improving nervous system health and function by supporting the fatty tissue around your nerves called myelin, which protects your nerves from damage.

B 12 Deficiency
There are numerous signs of possible B12 deficiency, such as
- lack of memory and poor cognitive function
- nervous system symptoms
- lack of energy
- premature signs of aging
- much more
B12 is needed for healthy metabolism as well as general health. B12 is required for our blood to be healthy (preventing anemia), healthy nerve cell and nervous system signaling, DNA synthesis and to avoid the effects of early physical aging.
While it is important to maintain adequate levels of B12 in your diet, much of what we ingest in the form of supplements is passed right through our gastrointestinal tract unabsorbed. As a general rule of thumb, you can count on absorbing about 30 percent of what supplement you are taking. This is why the B12 Injections are so important. By getting a B12 injection, you are able to benefit directly and immediately, by receiving 100 percent of the vitamin dose directly into your cells. B12 injections need to be provided by your doctor in Santa Rosa at Tru Health Medicine.
Why is it better to receive a shot vs. taking an oral supplement?
The stomach acids that aid in the natural digestion of food will break down the oral supplement in your stomach, and only allow the body to absorb a small amount of the actual B12. As you get older your body's ability to absorb B12 through digestion continually decreases. The enzymes used to break down and metabolize vitamins decrease as you age. Vitamin injections and IV’s provide a direct method of supplying the body with nutrients. As the B12 enters the blood stream, it is more readily available for the body to use as needed.
Length of time Vitamin B12 lasts in the body
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it easily dissolves in water and is not stored by the body. It is eliminated through the urine, typically between 24 and 72 hours depending on how active a person is and the amount of fluids they take in. Due to the rapid rate with which the body processes Vitamin B12 frequent supplementation is needed to address deficiencies and gain maximum benefits. We recommend an injection once per week, but it can be done daily if needed.
