At KIH clinic we offer B12 injections for those with low levels or symptoms indicating they would gain benefit from them. Symptoms may include: Those related to certain neurological conditions, hair loss, mood disorders, low energy or various conditions related to aging such as Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
You can also increase your B12 levels by taking it in capsule or sublingual form. Some people notice a stronger effect however if they receive it in an injection form. Either way, make sure the B12 you take orally or by injection is in a healthy form (i.e. hydrox or methylcobalamin). Sometimes cyano-cobalamin is used and since the co-factor is sourced from cyanide, a heavy metal, the solution becomes something the body needs to detoxify. Hydrox or methyl forms of B12 have health properties associated with them. As such, not only do they not need to be detoxified, but they can also have additional positive effects on your body. The only form of B12 used by KIH practitioners is hydrox or methyl-cobalamin.
Many people decide to receive B12 injections due to enhanced absorption occurring as a result of the B12 entering directly into the circulation.
