Did you know that there’s one non-invasive procedure that can have a drastic impact on your brain health, sleep, and the whole function of your body? Yes, it’s true, they’re called B12 shots, and DragonFly MedSpa has a team of experts who can administer B12 shots for customers in the Orlando area.
What Is A B12 Shot?
Vitamin B12 is one of the 13 essential vitamins our bodies need to survive and function each day. Many of the foods we eat contain vitamin B12. However, no amount of food will ever be sufficient if you can’t fully digest and absorb vitamin B12. Pernicious anemia is a condition where people lack “intrinsik factor,” a protein made in the stomach that absorbs B12. These people should speak with their doctor to see if they’re the perfect candidates for B12 shots.
A B12 shot is an injection of the B12 vitamin that allows the body to fully absorb the vitamin without the risk of the vitamin diminishing through digestion.
With B12 shots, your body can better optimize energy levels, mood, and metabolism for burning fat!
Why B Vitamins Are Important
B vitamins play a huge role in your body’s overall health, having an impact on the amount of energy your body has to function, brain health, sleep, and metabolism.
Vitamin B12 is the B vitamin responsible for producing red blood cells nerve cells and even has a vital part in producing DNA in your body.
Without vitamin B12, your body can’t complete these essential functions, resulting in fatigue, low energy levels, body weakness, and even low concentration levels. Keeping balanced nutritional levels is key to staying healthy, and vitamin B12 is an essential part of the puzzle.
Signs Of B Vitamin Deficiency
Vitamin B12 is present in many foods that we eat daily, including meat, eggs, fish, and dairy products.
However, there are many reasons why our bodies can’t absorb vitamin B12 from these sources.
- Diet: Today, many people decide to decrease the amount of red meat they eat, which is one of the highest vitamin B12. Having a vegetarian or vegan diet has also put some at risk of a B12 deficiency.
- Age: As we get older, our body’s digestive system loses strength. As a result, we cannot break down the nutrients of B12 found in foods.
The many symptoms of being deficient in vitamin B12 include constantly feeling tired, having low energy levels, and decreasing mood and concentration.
In severe cases, you may start to feel extremely weak and tired, resulting from anemia from low vitamin B12 levels.
If you suffer from one or more of these throughout your day-to-day life, you may be running low on B12!
Don’t worry; we have a solution for that.

Vitamin B12 can come in many versions. Hydroxocobalamin is a natural vitamin B12 that can be completely safe for pregnant women to receive. Pregnant women who’re vegan or vegetarian and currently or plan to breastfeed are at a higher risk of a B12 deficiency.
