What is Vitamin B12?

This course is suitable for both medics and non-medics who meet our minimum entry requirements, Our Vitamin B12 training course is designed to teach you the safe and effective administration of Vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12 is a man-made form of vitamin B12 known as Cyanocobalamin, your body uses vitamin B-12 to make red blood cells, nerves, DNA and protein. It also helps metabolise fat and carbohydrates. Unlike other forms of oral supplements, vitamin injections go straight to work. Oral supplements must be digested and absorbed by the body, and to survive the process, they often contain unnecessary ingredients. Not only are these ingredients absent in nutritional value, many could be potentially harmful.

The many benefits with having B12 injections are:

  • Helps With Red Blood Cell Formation and Anaemia Prevention
  • Speeds Up Metabolism
  • Improves Fatigue
  • Improves Wellbeing & Protects The Heart
