Vitamin B12 Injections
We are delighted to offer vitamin B12 Injections here at lily-Rose House Of Beauty.
Please note: The Vitamin B12 we use is a Prescription Only Medicine that is only available on prescription following a consultation.
Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce.
We offer Hydroxocobalamin which is a man-made injectable form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves.
The multi-functional Vitamin works hard to maintain good mental health, whilst reducing signs of stress and depression. Studies have also shown that supplementing this impressive ingredient can help improve sleep patterns, increase energy levels and supporting the nervous system.
Hydroxocabalamin starts to work straight away. However, it may take a few days or weeks before your symptoms start to improve and you feel better.
At first, you may need to have the injection a few times a week to boost your levels of vitamin B12.
Some common side effects are feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.
It's safe to take for a long time. Some people may need to take hydroxocobalamin for the rest of their lives.

Deficiency of B12 affect your health
It is known that vitamin B plays a vital role in producing brain chemicals that affect mood and other functions of the brain. The low level of these brain chemical is related to depression. The decrease in the level of vitamin B12 and B6 can lead to depression.
The deficiency of vitamin B12 leads to diseases like depression and anxiety. Depression can be related to one feeling low or sad for some time without any apparent reason. This could be for days, months or even for years which is not good for physical and mental health.
A person suffering from depression is adversely affected by areas like feeling, thinking and acting. He also loses interest in activities once enjoyed. A person suffering from depression can feel dejected, helpless and hopeless.
It also leads to many physical and mental problems and decreases the ability and efficiency of your performance at home or work. The depression could be a reaction to losing loved ones, or it could be a side effect of taking some medical treatment.
Symptoms Of Vitamin B12 deficiency
If you have anaemia caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency, you may have other symptoms, such as:
A pale yellow tinge to your skin
A sore and red tongue (glossitis)
Changes in the way that you walk and move around
Changes in the way you think, feel and behave
A decline in your mental abilities, such as memory, understanding and judgement (dementia)
What are the Risks?
Although Vitamin B12 has not been shown to cause harm, it is important to note that the POM (Prescription Only Medicine) form of Vitamin B12 requires proper care in its use.
There is a minimal risk of overdose where Vitamin B12 is water soluble – meaning that any excess B12 should pass easily through your system – and any side effects of prescribed Vitamin B12 are very rare.
There are also different types of synthetic Vitamin B12 and unfortunately many are fake or illegal for use in the UK, so it is vital that the Vitamin being used is legal, genuine and safe to be administered by a properly trained and insured professional.
