Vitamin B12

What inspired you to become a Vitamin B12 Technician?

 I have a health condition that requires regular monitoring of my Vitamin levels, including B12. Whilst test results consistently showed my levels to be in an acceptable range, I continued to feel fatigued, along with various other health niggles.

I was on holiday in America when I stumbled upon a private Vitamin B12 Clinic. Having researched the benefits of Vitamin B12 Shots, I decided to have a consultation with the technicians and doctor, resulting in a treatment course.

With the first shot, I experienced positive changes. The improvements continued as I continued my treatment back in the UK. I had more energy, was less irritable, slept like a log and woke up feeling rested. I previously had trouble with my hormone imbalances, and that completely stopped. I have Coeliac disease and have struggled with energy levels for many years, and to realise something as simple as a Vitamin could be so life-changing and elevate my well-being was very surprising, and I wished I had discovered it years ago. 

I found it hard to find anyone in this area who offered B12 injections, so I travelled quite a distance for my B12 shot.

I decided to train to be a Vitamin B12 Technician to offer this treatment to other people locally. I found the best training academy for vitamin B12 in the UK. My training in Cambridge included the Injection Technique Course, Vitamin B12 course, Nutrition Course, Adult Safe Guarding, Life Saving Course, and DBS.

Why has the B12 shot rather than just taking the Oral Vitamin B12 supplement?

   The downfall of oral vitamin B12 is the problem of absorption through the digestive system. The conditions have to be perfect for the body to absorb effectively. Only 2% of the oral supplement is absorbed. 

With a Vitamin B12 shot, we bypass the problems with absorption through the digestive system by introducing the vitamin by intramuscular injection into the deltoid muscle (top of the arm) where 100% of the vitamin absorbs into the system.  

What ingredients are in the injection? 

The VITB12SHOT is 1000mcg/1ml of Hydroxocobalamin and is the best form of Vitamin B12 for intramuscular muscular use. It also contains a small amount of glacial acetic, sodium chloride and of course, water for the injection. 

Is it safe? Who should not have the treatment?

Yes, Vitamin B12 shots are entirely safe as it is water-soluble and non-toxic. You cannot have too much or overdose on vitamin B12 as it is water-soluble, so what the body doesn’t need it excretes through the urine. 

The contra-indications for Vitamin B12 are Cobalt allergy, Cobalamin and derivative allergies, low blood Potassium levels and Lebers Hereditary Optic Atrophy. I do not administer B12 to anyone under 18 or anyone pregnant. It is safe for pregnant ladies to have B12. It’s just not a service we offer. For everyone else, it is our doctor who assesses the client for suitability. Some medications stop B12 from working, so it is unethical for us to administer B12 when taking these medications.

What has been the response to your service? How are the Vitamin B12 shots helping your clients?

One client has had trouble getting a full night’s sleep for over 15 years. After one B12 health boost, she started getting good deep sleep all night and waking up feeling rested. She completes her four boost course next week and has more energy, and is generally feeling better than she has in years.

Another client worked in a school and was getting every bug and virus going and feeling generally unwell for a long time. She was at the end of her rope. Her immune system seemed to be very low. It wasn’t until the third boost that she started to feel the benefits. She has completed her four boost course, is feeling so well and has a spring in her step. 

It’s worth just saying that vitamin B12 can help with many medical conditions, but I do not treat any medical conditions. The Vitamin B12 I administer is a health boost to improve energy, sleep, mood, cognitive focus and well-being. The above are just examples of what my clients have experienced.

How often do you need the injection?

We recommend a course of 4 boosts over a 4-6 week period and then a monthly/6 weekly top-up. However, I know my clients know their bodies best and when they would like their top-up boosts. Some clients decide to have one every three months or just when they have a busy week at work or are going on holiday. It is really up to you when you have your repeats.
