Vitamin Injections Q & A

Why are B12 injections administered?

Vitamin B12 is essential for the health of your red blood cells and your blood's ability to move nutrients through the body.

Without enough B12, the number of red blood cells decreases resulting in a condition known as megaloblastic anemia. The condition causes extreme fatigue as your body's cells are deprived of the nutrients they need to function.

Dr. Gastellum can administer B12 injections to bring the body's levels back into a normal range and stimulate the production of new red blood cells. As more new red blood cells are produced, the transportation of nutrients becomes more efficient, and your health improves dramatically.

Why are B complex injections beneficial?

B complex is a chain of vitamins that work together to improve brain function, support the immune system, and strengthen the endocrine system. While you can take one B vitamin at a time, it's better to make sure you have sufficient amounts of all of the nutrients in the chain.

Even if you're only missing one, your body can’t utilize all of the others fully. As a chain, they have a powerful bond that allows the effects of each to be enhanced once the body utilizes them.

B complex vitamins can be found in supplement form, injections, or in IV therapy solutions that are designed for fast and efficient utilization.

What are the benefits of using injections to administer vitamins and other natural medications?

Much like with IV therapies, injections deliver supplements and medications directly into the blood stream or into the soft tissues of the body where they'll do the most good. If only one vitamin, is needed, using an injection is a more beneficial than hooking you up to an IV.

A good example of this is B12 injections. Using an injection to deliver the required amount requires less time and is more efficient.

Dr. Gastellum can perform lab tests to determine what vitamins and minerals are needed and determine the best way to deliver them, either through an injection of an IV.
