Vitamin B12 – what is it, why do we need it – and where can we get it?

What is Vitamin B12, and why do we need it?

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that our bodies need to function correctly. From producing red blood cells and DNA to supporting the normal functioning of the nervous system, it plays a pivotal role in maintaining overall health.

Vitamin B12 is not produced in the body naturally; we obtain it from food or supplements. Due to its abundant presence in animal products, certain groups of people, especially those following vegetarian or vegan diets, are particularly at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency.

When we do not have enough Vitamin B12, the deficiency can manifest in various ways:

• Fatigue and weakness.
• Numbness/tingling.
• Depression and anxiety.
• Brain fog and memory issues.
• Swollen, itchy tongue.
• Blurred vision.
• Dizziness or shortness of breath.
• Headaches or migraines.
• Fast heart rate.
• Nausea and heartburn.

But fear not. We have a solution.

Where can you get Vitamin B12?

Welltree Health offers private Vitamin B12 treatments.
To get you back on track, we suggest:

•  Six initial loading doses of vitamin B12, administered over 2-3 weeks. These will swiftly elevate your B12 level into the therapeutic range and help you feel better.

• Once your B12 level reaches this optimal range, an injection is typically given every 8-12 weeks to maintain it. However, the frequency depends on your clinical progress and overall feelings.
