Vitamin B12 is part of a larger vitamin B complex, but it is regularly singled out as an essential vitamin that is necessary for good health. For this reason, more and more people are choosing to supplement their diet with vitamin B12 shots.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is an essential water-soluble vitamin that the body uses to maintain healthy nerve cells, produce RNA, DNA and red blood cells and help iron to function properly. B12 also works with folate to produce the amino acid SAMe which controls mood and supports immune function. B12 injections have many benefits and are often prescribed for deficiencies that cause fatigue, shortness of breath, diarrhea, numbness and neurological damage. Vitamin B12 is water-soluble: "When taken in excess, your body eliminates what it doesn't need.
Absorption and Availability
A B12 deficiency can result from a lack of intrinsic factor, a substance needed to absorb B12.
One of the benefits of B12 injections over oral supplements is its immediate availability to the body. Injections that go directly into the blood stream bypass absorption barriers according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and can help people with malabsorption issues like those who have intestinal disorders or have undergone intestinal surgeries.

Vitamin B12 is involved in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. If you’ve been deficient for a while, newly-restored B12 levels will have a somewhat magical effect on your energy levels. You’ll feel more upbeat. More energized.
Fatigue and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
