Many people in this country have low B12 levels. B12 is critical vitamin for metabolism and energy. One study from the US Department of Agriculture found that over 40% of people are in the “low normal” or “deficient” range. The people with the low values described themselves as “busy people with fast-paced lives.” Doesn’t that describe most people in Las Vegas?
The low normal and deficient ranges for B12 levels are levels where people can experience symptoms of B12 deficiency. These can include low energy level, memory loss, tingling of the hands or feet, clouded thinking, and shortness of breath. B12 is in most meat products and fortified cereals. The problem is that many people have a hard time absorbing it. In addition, many people are on medications (zantac and prilosec) that cause vitamin absorption problems. B12 shots are also an excellent idea if you are just hungover from life due to stress, work, hectic schedules, or otherwise.
B12 shots are an excellent way to get B12 rapidly into the system. We recommend B12 shots twice per month. These shots are administered as an IM (intramuscular) injection, usually in the arm or buttocks. It is relatively painless and has few side effects. You can be in and out of our clinic in less than ten minutes. We are conveniently located to the Strip, right behind Fashion Show Mall.
Our B12 shots are $30 (includes initial consult) for the first shot and then $20 each. We do have a special program for entertainment industry personnel, please call and ask our receptionist for details. All of our medications are high quality and obtained from a US-based supplier, Physician Sales and Service, the largest supplier of medications and equipment to physician offices in the country.
At Vita Heaven, we also offer our “Heavenly B Complex Shot,” which is a combination of six different B vitamins. Unlike other b complex injections, ours is painless and fast. B12 is important, but it just one of the B vitamins necessary for a fast-paced, hectic lifestyle.
