Why Vitamin Injections are Recommended
We are now at a point where nutritional supplements are becoming requirements due to nutrient deficiencies. Ongoing research is finding injectable vitamin therapies are important for many disease states and could be essential to slow the steady decline of societies health. Vitamin Injections, however, provide direct delivery of nutrients into the body’s tissues, ensuring 100% absorption of the active ingredients.
Vitamin B12 Deficiency
A vitamin B12 deficiency can be the main result of your diet. Many vegans and vegetarians are prone to B12 deficiencies since B12 mainly comes from animal products, such as fish, meat, eggs, poultry, milk, and dairy products. Crohn’s and Celiac disease are other deficiency cases, which prevent the body from properly digesting and absorbing vitamin B12.
B12 deficiency can cause a variety of symptoms that interfere with a balanced well-being:
– Mood changes
– Weight loss
– Brain fog or trouble concentrating
– Loss of memory
Vitamin B12 Shots for Healthy Skin
B12 vitamins help to improve the health of your skin. B12 vitamins are used to treat and prevent such conditions:
– Dry skin
– Dull complexion or uneven skin tone
In addition to our B-Well Vitamin Injection we have offer a Sparkle & Glow IV Nutrient Therapy. This IV supports collagen production through Vitamin C, promotes glowing skin by removal of toxins that dull our skin, increases vitality and energy, and maintains healthy skin with amino acids.
Vitamin B12 Shots for Energy
B12 helps your body absorb folic acid, another nutrient which releases energy. B12 aids in the production of serotonin, a chemical in your brain that helps you feel happy with a positive mindset.
Vitamin B12 Shots for Weight Loss
Vitamin B12 helps to boost your metabolism, while metabolizing fats and protein. B12 provides energy to promote weight loss and increase lean body mass. Try our B-Well, our Detox Booster or Body Sculpt Vitamin Injection.

B12 Vitamins are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. B12 protects your body from infection and forms the creation of red blood cells. Try our Super Immune Vitamin Injection to improve cell level defense, speed recovery time, and prevent illness. For a more effective treatment, try our Immune Boost IV Nutrient Therapy to prevent illness, reduce recovery time from illness, and protect against viral and bacteria infections.
Anemia and B12 Injections
Without enough Vitamin B12, our bodies have a hard time producing the correct amount of red blood cells. Anemia is a type of B12 deficiency that can be treated with regular B12 (B-Well) Injections. Anemia symptoms include:
– Always tired
– Bright red tongue
– Tingling or numb hands and feet
– Shortness of breath
Ingredients & FAQs
VITAMIN B12 – HYDROXOCOBALAMIN B-12 is the most critical nutrient for nerve and blood health. It is the primary component building the biochemical pathways that help convert the foods we eat to energy. It acts as direct spark to the metabolism, resulting in surge of energy and mental clarity. B-12 helps against fatigue, sleep disorders, depression, stress, mental fog, and intestinal malabsorption.
VITAMIN B100 COMPLEX – A group of seven different nutrients designed to address all aspects of the nervous system, metabolism and detoxification. This group of nutrients work together to boost energy by synthesizing neurotransmitters in the brain, strengthening nerves, aiding in the breakdown of fats and accelerating the removal of toxins from the body. B-COMPLEX contains twice the amount of B-12 than the regular B-12 shot and includes all of the following: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9.
VITAMIN B1 – THIAMINE Thiamine helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy and is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system.
VITAMIN B2 – RIBOFLAVIN This easily absorbed micronutrient plays a key role in energy metabolism, and is required for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins.
VITAMIN B3 – NIACINAMIDE Niacinamide assists in the functioning of the digestive system, skin and nerves; it is also important for the conversion of food to energy.
VITAMIN B5 – PANTOTHENIC ACID Pantothenic acid is important for our bodies to properly use carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids and for healthy skin.
VITAMIN B6 – PYRIDOXINE Pyridoxine is needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein metabolism and is also essential for red blood cell metabolism. B6 helps the nervous and immune systems function efficiently and converts the amino acid tryptophan into niacin, vitamin B3.
VITAMIN B9 – FOLIC ACID B vitamins/folate help support adrenal function, help calm and maintain a healthy nervous system, and are necessary for key metabolic processes.
GLUTATHIONE is an amino-acid. It is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants that exists. It works directly with the liver to make it more effective at eliminating toxins. The more toxins you have the less your body is able to fight of disease and illness. Along with the kidneys, the liver is the main detox organ of the body.
INOSITOL is a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with Choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats, helps reduce blood cholesterol, and participates in the action of serotonin. CHOLINE supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products with the body. It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic system.
L-CARNITINE This naturally occurring amino acid plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell.
Why is it better to receive an injection 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 vitamins. Vitamin injections (IMs) and IVs provide a direct method of supplying the body with nutrients. Vitamin injections also provide the patient with a 100% absorption of the nutrients which allow the patient’s body to utilize more of the desired nutrients and aid in the overall performance and function of their body.
How long does a vitamin injection last in the body?
Vitamin injections are 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 vitamins, frequent supplementation is needed to address deficiencies and gain maximum benefits. We recommend an injection once per week to prevent illness or fatigue, but it can be done daily if needed.
How often can I get a vitamin shot?
Most patients typically get a vitamin shot once per week. If you are feeling tired or ill you will benefit from getting more than one injection per week.
Do I need an appointment?
No appointment is needed, stop by anytime during our business hours.
Does it hurt?
Vitamin shots are relatively painless. Some feel a little pinch, and most do not feel the needle at all. Because of our nurses’ expertise and the technique, we use at Spark Health, our patients report that they didn’t feel anything and that it was virtually painless.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are generally non-existent or very mild. This could include slight discomfort, bruising, redness, or inflammation at the injection site. Allergic reaction is extremely rare. However, if you experience swelling to the throat, low blood pressure, a body rash, or symptoms associated with anaphylaxis visit your nearest urgent care facility.
Is it safe during pregnancy?
Please consult with your physician before getting a b12 shot or any other vitamin injection.
Where is the shot administered?
The most common locations are administered in your buttock / glute muscle.
