What is Vitamin B12?
B12 is an essential nutrient and plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function, and DNA production. B12 deficiency is not common in the US, but many who have it might not realize. It is commonly found in meat and dairy products, but vegans are particularly susceptible to B12 deficiency as it is not commonly found within plant foods or synthesized by the body.

What causes B12 deficiencies?
For most people, the main culprit behind their B12 deficiency is their diet. B12 mainly comes from animal products such as eggs, meat, fish, and dairy, meaning that vegetarians and vegans are particularly susceptible to having a B12 deficiency. Some people also have conditions that prevent their bodies from properly metabolizing or absorbing B12, but both issues can be treated through direct injections.
How often should you get B12 shots?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Some patients might need to get an injection as frequently as 3 times a week while others might only do it once in a while when they need a boost of energy. Most patients do come in on a weekly basis, but you can also exercise your best judgment and come in when the effects start to wear off.
