IM and IV Vitamin Therapy 


Vitamin Boosters are a powerful  and very quick and efficient method of addressing deficiencies. Some vitamins are very difficult to get through diet and supplements are not always readily absorbed by the body. Having an injection means that the vitamin is delivered straight into the blood stream.
B-Complex – 

Research and studies have proved that Vitamin B complex injections are more efficient than tablets, gels or liquids. This is because the digestive system, stomach acids and enzymes attack the molecular structure of B vitamins when consumed in the form of tablets or gels. But in case of injections, neither acids nor enzymes are able to attack the vitamins.

This results in higher rate of absorption and retention of B vitamins with faster and effective results. Many countries use these injections as dietary supplements.

Vitamin B complex injection is used by many individuals for an immediate boost in energy and to aid in weight loss. These injections are most useful for fatigue caused due to nerve damage, diabetes, sciatica, tinnitus, effects of stress, chronic disease, B12 deficiency and a number of other conditions.

Vitamin B is not actually a single vitamin but is a collection of 8 different vitamins that form the group of B vitamins. These vitamins are all water soluble which means that they can be easily transported around the body.

The importance of B vitamins cannot be understated. Vitamins and minerals are usually required by the human body in extremely small quantities. However, the absence of these small quantities is likely to cause serious health problems to the individual.

B complex vitamins promote immune system function, cell growth, metabolic function and nervous system function. Various characteristics of the individual such as energy levels, skin health, and muscle condition therefore depend on the consumption of adequate levels of B complex vitamins.

Vitamin Complex 

B1 (thiamine):

  • Thiamin is also known as vitamin B1

  • The water-soluble vitamin that is required for the proper metabolism of starch and sugar in order to provide energy to the body.

  • Thiamin also plays an integral role in nerve function.

  • B-l helps the heart and other muscles function properly.

  • Thiamine plays an essential role in metabolism by helping convert nutrients into energy.

  • The richest food sources include pork, sunflower seeds and wheat germ

B2 (riboflavin):

  • Riboflavin is mainly involved in energy metabolism and helps the thyroid function properly.

  • Vitamin B2 aids in weight loss by releasing the unused energy in the body and preventing unused energy from turning into fat.

  • Vitamin B2 is crucial for the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

  • People who exercise daily are actually losing B2 by using up their supply of the vitamin.

  • Riboflavin helps convert food into energy and also acts as an antioxidant.

  • Foods highest in riboflavin include organ meats, beef and mushrooms

B3 (niacin):

  • B3 support healthy carbohydrate metabolism.

  • The water-soluble vitamin Niacin is essential for the body to convert carbohydrates, fat and alcohol into energy.

  • Vitamin B3 aids in the normal maintenance of thyroid hormone production.

  • It helps maintain skin health and supports the normal function of the nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract.

  • B5 is also a component of the glucose tolerance factor which is released every time your blood sugar rises.

  • Niacin is usually not lost during the cooking process, unlike most other B group vitamins. The severe lack of which can be a potential contributing factor towards obesity.

  • Niacin plays a role in cellular signalling, metabolism and DNA production and repair. Food sources include chicken, tuna and lentils

Vitamin B4 (Choline)

  • Sometimes referred to as Vitamin B4, choline is a member of the B-complex family also known as Adenine, (Although not officially deemed a Vitamin per the FDA definition) is an essential and vital nutrient for our health.

  • Vitamin B4 is also one of the water-soluble vitamins that aids in weight loss.

  • This nutrient is a fat emulsifier that works with the nutrient inositol. Choline and inositol use the cholesterol and fats in the body to prevent weight gain and promote weight loss.

  • Without choline, the excess fats that are digested get trapped in the liver and block fat metabolism which leads to weight gain.

B5 (pantothenic acid):

  • Vitamin B5 plays an important role in weight loss.

  • Vitamin B5 is involved in energy production and helps to control fat metabolism.

  • Pantothenic acid is needed to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, fats and alcohol as well as produce red blood cells and steroid hormones.

  • Vitamin B5 also aids in digestion and helps break down fat and carbohydrates, thus giving more energy and boosting one’s metabolism, which also helps in weight loss.

  • Like other B vitamins, pantothenic acid helps your body obtain energy from food and is also involved in hormone and cholesterol production.

  • Liver, fish, yogurt and avocado are all good sources

B6 (pyridoxine):

  • Pyridoxine the water-soluble vitamin plays an integral role in the metabolism of fats, particularly fatty acids which are unsaturated and help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy.

  • Vitamin B6 helps with the regulation and production of the thyroid.

  • B6 is also required for protein and carbohydrate metabolism.

  • Vitamin B6 helps the pancreas produce enzymes that aid indigestion. Proper digestion will make one feel full longer, thus resulting in weight loss.

  • Pyridoxine is involved in amino acid metabolism, red blood cell production and the creation of neurotransmitters.

  • Foods highest in this vitamin include chickpeas, salmon and potatoes

B7 (biotin):

  • Vitamin B7 (biotin) is needed for energy metabolism, fat synthesis, amino acid metabolism and glycogen synthesis.

  • Biotin improves blood-sugar control.

  • People who exercise often have an increased need for biotin for several reasons: Increased metabolism resulting in the loss of this vitamin in urine or sweat, need for tissue repair and maintenance.

  • Biotin is essential for carbohydrate and fat metabolism and regulates gene expression.

  • Yeast, eggs, salmon, cheese and liver are among the best food sources of biotin

B12 (cobalamin):

  • Methylcobalamin the most bio-available form of Vitamin B12, i.e. it is the most readily absorbed.

  • Further to this research has shown that it remains in the body for a longer period of time and at higher levels than Cyanocobalamin, which means that your body is supplied with vitamin B12 for longer if you use Methylcobalamin than if you use Cyanocobalamin.

  • Methylcobalamin is used primarily in your liver, brain and nervous system, in fact methylcobalamin is the specific form of B12 needed for nervous system health.

The following symptoms may be a sign that you’re not getting enough B vitamins-

  • skin rashes

  • cracks around the mouth

  • scaly skin on the lips

  • swollen tongue

  • fatigue

  • weakness

  • anemia

  • confusion

  • irritability or depression

  • nausea

  • abdominal cramps

  • diarrhea

  • constipation

  • numbness or tingling in the feet and hands

Vitamin B complex helps prevent infections and helps support or promote-

  • cell health

  • growth of red blood cells

  • energy levels

  • good eyesight

  • healthy brain function

  • good digestion

  • healthy appetite

  • proper nerve function

What does a B Complex Injection help with?

Complex injections help with a number of health concerns, including:

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Weight Loss

  • Chronic Pain

  • Blood Sugar Control

  • Nerve Pain

  • and More

  • hormones and cholesterol production

  • cardiovascular health

  • muscle tone

In women

B vitamins are especially important for women who are pregnant and breastfeeding. These vitamins aid in fetal brain development as well as reduce the risk of birth defects.

And for expectant mothers, B vitamins may boost energy levels, ease nausea, and lower the risk of developing preeclampsia.

In men

B vitamins are thought to increase testosterone levels in men, which naturally decrease with age. They may also help men build muscle and increase strength.



Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is antioxidant and helps prevent oxidative stress

  • Works with enzymes to make collagen

  • Brightens skin and complexion

  • When taken by injection Vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when taken orally

  • Vitamin C is used to treat colds, boost immune,

  • Lowers Hypertension

  • Guards against heart disease

  • Higher dosage by injection over oral counterparts

  • Vitamin C is non-toxic, even at high doses

  • Can be used to facilitate healing

Vitamin C Injection is also known as Ascorbic acid. It plays an important role to maintain healthy skin, bones, teeth, and cartilage. This vitamin is an essential nutrient to protect cells of the body from damage. Vitamin C Injection acts as an antioxidant. Insufficient amounts of this vitamin can cause scurvy, muscle weakness, joint pain, skin rashes, and tiredness. Vitamin C is important for healthy bones, tissues, veins and help in the production of red blood cells. The disease scurvy which is caused due to deficiency of Vitamin C is treated by supplying enough of the vitamin to the body from external sources. Ascorbic acid is used in such treatment. It also helps in better iron absorption in the body. Vitamin C is a vitamin absorbed by the body from different food sources, mostly from citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, kiwi, papaya etc. as well as smaller amounts in some vegetables. You should not be taking Vitamin C Injection if you have a problem of hemochromatosis or iron overload, or any kind of complications related to kidney stones in the past. Vitamin C injections are safe when taken in proper dosage according to the need of your body. 


Why Vitamin B12?

  • After water and oxygen, vitamin B12 is the next essential micronutrient molecule vital for health.

  • Vitamin B12 deficiency is common and can manifest at any age and is largely unrecognised.

  • Vitamin B12 is crucial for many systems of the body to function correctly.

  • Pernicious anaemia is just one illness related to a deficiency in vitamin B12.

  • It is believed that vitamin B12 deficiency is not always detectable on blood tests.

  • Symptoms such as depression, anxiety and psychosis as well as the early onset of dementia are common with vitamin B12 deficiency.

  • Causes of B12 deficiency include genetic disorders, poor diet, gastrointestinal illness or surgery, alcoholism and use of antacids.

  • Vitamin B12 is non-toxic – even at really high doses.

What is Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is the generic name for a group of compounds based on the cobalamin molecule that has cobalt as the trace mineral at its core. Cobalamin is a highly active complex organometallic molecule. It is the largest and most chemically complex of all of the 13 known vitamins and is generally red in colour. Like other B & C vitamins, Cobalamin is water-soluble, a characteristic that effects how it is absorbed, excreted and stored in the body. Vitamins A, D, E & K are all fat-soluble.

It is classified as a vitamin as it is an essential nutrient for the human body and is regularly obtained from the food we eat. Like other vitamins its role is to catalyse or regulate metabolic reactions in the body. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the body responsible for hematopoiesis (producing all types of blood cells), neural metabolism, DNA & RNA production, and carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. It also helps to improve iron function in the metabolic cycle and assists folic acid in choline synthesis.

Vitamin B12 can only be made by microorganisms, such as bacteria and algae, if the cobalt mineral is available in the soil or water. The main source for humans to obtain vitamin B12 is from the consumption of meat and fish. The vitamin is made by microbes in the digestive tract of animals, where it is absorbed and deposited into their tissues. As well as meat and fish, vitamin B12 can also be obtained by the consumption of cheese, milk and eggs. There are no known sources of vitamin B12 in plants, although some species of seaweed have been found to contain it. Therefore it is quite common to see vegetarians or vegans present with vitamin B12 deficiencies.

Vitamin B12 is absorbed into our tissues through the digestive tract, however this process can be disrupted from poor digestion, intestinal disease or the use of some medications etc. Main causes are due to atrophic gastritis and lack of Intrinsic Factor (IF), a glycoprotein produced by the stomach that is required for the absorption of B12. As well as from poor diet and digestion, vitamin B12 deficiencies can also be affected by a genetic condition such as:

  • Pernicious anaemia

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Treatment with proton-pump inhibitors

  • Atrophic gastritis

  • Coeliac disease

  • Use of antacids (acid is required to release B12 from food)

  • Gastrointestinal surgery

  • Use of certain medications

  • Use of illegal drugs and substances including nitrous oxide

The body systems where B12 is important

Vitamin B12 plays a key role in many body systems and organs and this list is increasing. It is needed for energy production through the Krebs Cycle, for the synthesis of DNA via the folate cycle which affects trillions of cells in the body, and for the expression of genes through epigenetic processes. It affects the proper functioning of the nervous and peripheral systems, mood and cognitive functions and the formation of blood in the bone marrow, skin and mucous membranes, bones, the glandular system, the immune system, the digestive system, fertility and pregnancy and development of the embryo.

Vitamin B12 deficiency consequently manifests as a wide range of different symptoms, some of which appear to be unrelated or may even be misdiagnosed. B12 is fundamental to animal life and metabolism that the symptoms are also widespread.

B12 is responsible for:

  • Manufacture and normal function of blood cells.

  • It rapidly divides all cells from epithelial cells to bone marrow cells.

  • Energy production through the Krebs Cycle.

  • Metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

  • Nerve cell conduction.

  • Neurotransmitters.

  • Endocrine systems.

  • Immune systems.

  • Conversion of homocysteine to methionine, then to SAMe (mood enhancing) and amino acids, with effects on many metabolic processes.

  • Correct synthesis and transcription of DNA.

  • Removal of toxins.

Neuropsychiatric disorders

The earliest symptoms of B12 deficiency and include:

  • Irritability

  • Mood swings

  • Confusion

  • Forgetfulness

  • Fogginess

  • Psychosis

  • Hallucinations or delusion

  • Depression

  • Anxiety/Panic attacks

  • Tension headaches

  • Onset of dementia

Neurological disorders

  • Bells palsy

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  • Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)

Autoimmune disorders

Autoimmune disorders take many forms, they include overactive immune system disorders when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys its own tissue and underactive system disorders when the body’s defence against disease is reduced. Such disorders are frequent with vitamin B12 deficiency. The list includes:

  • Addison’s disease

  • Amyloidosis

  • Ankylosing spondylitis

  • Coeliac disease

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Dermatomysositis

  • Graves’ disease

  • Guillain-Barre syndrome

  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS-like presentation/SACD (subacute combined degeneration))

  • Myasthenia gravis

  • Pernicious anaemia/B12 deficiency

  • Reactive arthritis

  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS)

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Sjogren’s syndrome

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus

  • Type 1 diabetes

  • Ulcerative colitis

Many of the above conditions have overlapping symptoms, for example fatigue, general ill-feeling, joint pain and rash. Many of these conditions cease to exhibit their symptoms once vitamin B12 balance is restored in the body.

B12 SAFTEY

Experience has shown that vitamin B12 is completely safe, at any concentration in the diet and in the blood.

The non-toxicity of Vitamin B12 is confirmed by the US National Institute of Health Office of Dietary Supplements which states that the US Institute of Medicine (IoM) has not established any upper limit for B12 ‘because of its low toxicity’. The IoM states that ‘no adverse effects have been associated with excess vitamin B12 intake from food and supplements in healthy individuals’.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) states that the European Committee on Food (SCF) has concluded that ‘it is not possible to derive an upper intake level, mainly because no clearly identified adverse effect could be identified’.
