Why Injectable Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 injections are commonly used by healthcare professionals to treat conditions that cause a deficiency of vitamin B12, such as pernicious anemia. When dietary absorption is not sufficient to meet an individual’s vitamin B12 needs, alternative methods, such as injections or sublingual absorption, may be necessary. Injections are the most direct method of delivering vitamin B12, as they enter the bloodstream faster and are more easily absorbed. However, the effectiveness of this method can vary from person to person, as everyone’s metabolism is unique. Some people may prefer sublingual absorption, while others may find injections more effective. It is important to consult a healthcare professional to determine the best delivery method for you.

Additionally, it is important to be aware of the clinical pharmacology of cyanocobalamin vitamin B12 for intramuscular injection, including contraindications and precautions.

Why Is Vitamin B12 Important?

The B vitamins are crucial for various functions in the human body, including energy production, immune system function, and the production of red blood cells. Among the B vitamins, vitamin B12 is especially important for maintaining good neurological health. It plays a vital role in the proper functioning and development of the brain and nerve cells. Without sufficient vitamin B12, the body may experience problems with brain function and nerve function. It is important to ensure that you are getting enough vitamin B12 in your diet or through supplements in order to support good overall health.

Why Generic B12?

It is possible for any laboratory to manufacture vitamin B12 safely and affordably, as there are no patented processes or secrets involved in its production. However, some large pharmaceutical companies may try to discourage consumers from purchasing generic vitamin B12 products in order to increase their own profits. These companies may use scare tactics in their marketing efforts, but it is important to remember that these tactics are often based more on marketing than on reality.

Injectable vitamin B12 is sometimes only available with a prescription due to concerns about injection safety, but the vitamin itself is not a scheduled or restricted substance. It is a essential nutrient that can be found in a variety of over-the-counter supplements and in many of the foods we eat as part of a healthy diet.

The initiation, administration and discontinuation of use of vitamin supplements should be under the guidance of a treating physician. Proper injection requires guidance and experience. Injections should be performed under the supervision of a doctor or medical professional.

While we don’t advise that people self inject these vitamin supplements themselves we offer a safe injection protocol for intramuscular injection as follows:

  1. Swab the top of the vial with isopropyl alcohol
  2. Insert the needle of a 21-24 gauge syringe into the vial and pull out the desired measure of injectable vitamin as per your Dr.’s prescription (generally .5CC-1.0CC
  3. Insert the needle into one of the areas of the body without arteries and few large veins IE. the buttocks (glutimus maximus), the shoulder muscle (deltoids) or the front of the quadriceps large (rectus femoris) muscle of the leg.
  4. * Before you inject the contents of the syringe into the location you’ve selected make absolutely sure you have not inserted the needle into a vein by pulling the plunger back. If you draw any blood whatsoever into the syringe then withdraw the needle immediately and pick another location.
  5. Once you’ve determined that your injection site is safe and that the contents of the syringe will be injected into a muscle only, then slowly depress the plunger of the syringe until all of the syringes contents are safely inside the muscle tissue.
  6. Slowly withdraw the syringe.
  7. Swab the injections site with alcohol.
  8. Put the cap back on the used syringe and dispose of it in a safe manner.
