B12 (hydroxocobalamin) injections are important to the body for growth, cell production, and blood & nerve function. They are given to treat low levels of B12 or in conditions where more is required such as in chronic illnesses. B12 injections can also be used to speed up metabolism and to enhance energy production. Many people report feeling more awake and well-balanced.
Most cases of vitamin B12 deficiency stem from absorption problems rather than dietary deficiencies. B12 injections have a large advantage over diet and oral supplementation because they allow for direct access to your cells and bypass your gastrointestinal tract.
Your body depends on B12 for a host of functions:
- Helping to maintain normal energy levels
- Promoting healthy neurological activity
- Supporting normal homocysteine levels for healthy cardiac function
- Helping to ease stress and sleeplessness
- Maintaining healthy cell growth and repair
- Promoting normal immune functions
- Supporting normal metabolism of carbohydrates and fats
There are several forms of vitamin B12 that you’re likely to come across in a doctors office specializing in weight loss: methylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, and hydroxocobalamin. Valley Medical uses hydroxocobalamin in our injections. Hydroxocobalamin has the added benefit of remaining in the body for a longer period of time and at higher levels. It is also the only form of B12 recommended worldwide by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a drug of choice for the treatment of vitamin B12 deficiency.
In the majority of cases of B12 deficiency, this isn’t actually caused by not getting enough of the vitamin from the diet, but being unable to absorb the vitamin properly (which can be caused by a variety of medical issues). Taking B12 through an injection allows the body to bypass the problematic absorption in the small intestine and use the vitamin immediately. This ensures that your body gets exactly what it needs.
You might be wondering why other weight loss clinics offer cyanocobalamin, instead of methylcobalamin or hydroxocobalamin? Why does this form of B12 commonly appear in multivitamins, and why do so few people know about the better alternative? The simple answer is money. Cyanocobalamin is far cheaper than methyl or hydroxo, and most of these businesses are more focused on increasing their profits rather than making sure you get the best possible supplementation.

I started at Valley Medical Weight Loss several weeks ago. I was very impressed with all of the staff and felt very comfortable talking with them. I am thrilled with the personal attention I receive. Very affordable and personalized.
Cost is excellent for the medication, supplements, B12 shot you receive every week around $26. Also in the last two weeks I have lost 10lbs. There is no appointments. There is also more helpful medication just in case you have trouble losing but be ready to stay by a bathroom since you drink a lot of water and eat very little cause you don't feel hungry.
