Vitamin B12 (£45 per injection - course of 3-6 months also available)


Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in brain function and red blood cell production.

Supplementing with vitamin B12 is particularly common, because deficiency is widespread. In fact, many people now receive regular vitamin B12 injections. These are claimed to help with energy levels, brain function and weight loss, to name a few. Since Covid, we have received more and more clients looking to compliment their diet with B12 injections as they look to, not only help with some of the above benefits mentioned, but also to combat some of the symptoms felt as a result of long covid.

An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to neurological problems or pernicious anemia, which occurs when your body doesn’t have enough B12 to produce the amount of red blood cells it needs.

Given the vital roles that vitamin B12 plays in your body, a deficiency can have serious health consequences. In fact, low blood levels of the vitamin have been linked to several health problems including:

  • Brain Function

  • Depression

  • Osteoporosis

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (a condition that causes a person to gradually lose central vision, usually in both eyes)

Vitamin B12 is found in animal foods, as well as some fortified foods that have added B12.

Some especially good sources of vitamin B12 include:

  • Liver

  • Beef kidney

  • Trout

  • Canned salmon

  • Ground beef

  • Eggs

  • Milk

  • Chicken

It can be difficult for some people to meet their vitamin B12 requirements. This is particularly true for those following a vegetarian or vegan diet. We can go further by offering our clients a course of 3 or 6 months of vitamin B12.

 



 

Vitamin C - (£65 per injection)


Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in our diet. It has many important roles our body’s immune function, including:

  • wound healing

  • preventing damage to cells

  • building collagen

  • producing chemical messengers called neurotransmitters

Many of our clients visit us for vitamin C injections for general health, to boost their immune system or because it has been identified that they are vitamin C deficient. Some other reasons people receive vitamin C injections include:

  • cancer

  • general health

  • immune function

  • weight loss

One of the primary benefits of injecting this nutrient is that it can help to boost your immune system, which is always very important, but especially following the pandemic. The reason the vitamin works so well is that it encourages the production of white blood cells and, once produced, protects them from harm. It also strengthens your skin’s barriers and thereby reduces the time it takes for a wound to heal.

In addition, It also has its benefits on the appearance of the skin. Because one of the functions of Vitamin C is to form collagen, it can effectively help you to maintain smooth and youthful-looking skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and helps to maintain the structure of many of your tissues. You can imagine it like the glue that holds your skin and other organs in place so that they don’t wrinkle or sag.

 

Vitamin D (£95 per injection - done only twice per year)


Let's be honest, we are not exposed to much Vitamin D in this neck of the woods! In fact, it is thought that around 20% of the UK population is deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D injections can offer a boost for your health, and could be suitable if you are feeling run down, have a chronic health condition, gut problems, or simply aren’t getting enough vitamin D from your lifestyle and/or diet.

Vitamin D ingested orally can take weeks, even months, to have an impact on your health – and much of the dose is lost when it is converted in the gut. However, vitamin D injections have a much more immediate impact – some clients report feeling the effects right away. Furthermore, because the vitamins are administered directly into the body, by passing the gut, a much higher percentage of the vitamins can be utilised by the body.

Signs that you may need more vitamin D include the some of the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue and low energy levels

  • Low mood

  • Eczema

  • Musculoskeletal aches and pains

  • Muscle weakness

  • Hair loss

  • Generally feeling unwell

  • Impaired cognition

What else can vitamin D injections help with?

  • Maintains bone density and bone health

  • Supports the immune system

  • Aids the absorption of calcium and phosphate in the body (these are essential for muscles, teeth, and bones)

  • Helps prevent osteoporosis

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Protects against heart disease

  • Supports brain function

  • Modulates cell growth

  • May help protect against respiratory infections

A vitamin D deficiency can put you at higher risk of health conditions including heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and depression.
