The Need for Vitamin B12
If you've tried everything to boost your energy, but still feel drained, you may want to try B12 shots. Low levels of vitamin B12, a vitamin that lies at the core of our body's ability to make DNA for new cells, form healthy red blood cells, and turn the food we eat into energy to power our metabolism, is often overlooked.

Recent studies suggest anywhere from 15-40% of Americans don't have adequate levels of B12 for optimal health. If you are low in Vitamin B12 it can lead to deep fatigue, mood changes, and dementia-like qualities, preventing you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level.

Protocol suggests weekly injection for 4 weeks, then bi-weekly injections for 4 weeks, and then monthly injections for maintenance.
Walk-in for B12 Shots
No appointment necessary but you may want to call ahead to make sure a nurse is available.
MIC Shot (also known as Lipo Shot)
- Amino Acid
- Vitamin B8 Complex
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin B Complex
Injection of this mixture of lipotropic compounds may be more effective than oral supplementation, this is due to the increased bioavailability of parenteral exposure. These lipotropic agents are structurally and functionally closely related to the B-vitamins or are involved in the homeostasis of energy production from fat. These compounds are often employed together in the hope of potentiating fat-loss, thus while the MIC mixture and B vitamin(s) are often injected separately, they are part of the same overall injection cycle. The non-vitamin compounds (MIC) that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and provide the needed metabolic environment of the body for a fatty acid (fat) mobilization and utilization.
Amino Acid: helps the liver maintain the optimal ability to process fatty acids.
Vitamin B8 Complex: is a sugar-like molecule, referred to as a sugar alcohol. Even though very similar in molecular structure to glucose, this molecule does not exhibit the traits that simple carbohydrates exhibit. Contrary to simple carbohydrates, this sugar alcohol has been shown to not actively increase adipose storage. In fact, Vitamin B8 has been found to decrease fatty acid synthase activity, a multi-enzyme protein that catalyzes fatty acid synthesis. This set of enzymes ultimately enables the body to produce triglycerides fat molecules that reside in adipose tissue (body fat).
Vitamin B12 Complex: is a simple molecule usually classified as a B vitamin. The B vitamin class is usually involved in the generation of energy and support of metabolism. Vitamin B12 Complex is an important precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is involved in a host of activities, one of which includes muscular function and contraction. Acetylcholine is a fundamental neurotransmitter that enables the communication between neurons.
Vitamin B Complex: is essential to growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and nucleoprotein and myelin synthesis. Cells characterized by rapid division (epithelial cells, bone marrow, myeloid cells) appear to have the greatest requirement for Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 Complex can be converted to coenzyme B12 in tissues.
