Vitamin Shots and their Benefits
Vitamin B-12

Vitamin B-12 is the "energy vitamin" as it often increases the energy level helping to prevent fatigue.  It also helps to suppress the appetite in weight loss programs as well as having a mild diuretic effect.  It stimulates the utilization of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in the body. It is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meats, and dairy products. Vitamin B-12 is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in a vitamin B complex formulation which is explained below.  It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.

B-12 injections should be given on a weekly basis (every 7-10 days) to maintain constant blood levels.

Vitamin B-Complex 

All B vitamins help the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose, which is "burned" to produce energy.  These B vitamins are essential in the breakdown of fats and protein.  B-Complex vitamins also play an important role in maintaining the muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract and promoting the health of the nervous system, skin, hair, eyes, moutn, and liver.  B-Complex vitamins are a popular choice of athletes. 

B-Complex injections should be given on a weekly basis (every 7-10 days) to maintain constant blood levels.

Lipo-B

The Lipo-B vitamin cocktail includes compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. Lipo-B decreases fat deposits and speeds up the metabolism and the natural removal of fat from the human body. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate). There are three key amino acids used to make these lipotropic shots are Vitamin B12, Choline, Methione, and Inositol. As mentioned above, Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels. 

Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical wast products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems. 

Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release. 

Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite. 

Folic Acid

Folic acid, along with vitamin B12, is important for formation of red blood cells. Lack of these two vital nutrients leads to variety of anemia called macrocytic anemia. This means the red blood cells appear bloated and large and have a reduced capacity to carry oxygen.

Folate along with other B vitamins are also vital for nerve function. Folate is essential for the formation of DNA (genetic material) within every body cell. This allows normal replication of cells.

Biochemically folates act as chemicals that medicate one-carbon transfer reactions. These are important for formation of purines and pyrimidines. These purines and pyrimidines form basic building blocks for DNA.

Some evidence links a shortage of folate with depression.  Limited evidence from randomized controlled trials showed using folic acid in addition to antidepressants to be specific SSRIs, may have benefits. Research at the University of York and Hull York Medical School has found a link between depression and low levels of folate.
