Most of us associate vitamin B12 with a boost in energy levels and a positive mood, but B12 is also linked to maintaining a healthy, robust immune system. As the temperatures drop and we begin to enter the cold and flu season, it’s important to make sure your immune system is getting all the vitamins and minerals it needs to perform optimally.
What Is B12 and How Does It Boost Immunity?
B12 is a water-soluble vitamin and an important micronutrient. It plays an important role in the development of DNA, red and white blood cells, and protein. White blood cells are essential for proper immune system functioning, and a vitamin B12 deficiency can actually lower your immunity.
Our bodies do not produce vitamin B12 naturally, so we need to regularly ingest it through animal-based foods, supplements or injections. Moreover, B12 is not stored for a very long time, meaning it has to be constantly replaced. When we don’t replenish our bodies with vitamin B12, we run the risk of developing vitamin B12 deficiency.
Does Right Weight Center Offer B12 Supplementation?
Yes! We provide B12 supplementation in the form of lipotropic injections, a preparation of amino acids, vitamins and minerals that increase your vitamin and mineral intake. In addition to enhancing absorption of important nutrients, lipotropic injections also encourage the natural breakdown of fat by working in tandem with your body’s metabolism, making a great weight loss aid.
In our experience, lipotropic injections provide a faster-acting, more potent delivery of vitamin B12 than a pill alone. Since an injection is delivered directly into the bloodstream, it ensures a 100 percent absorption rate. A lipotropic injection is given quickly using a narrow needle so as to minimize discomfort. It feels no different than getting a flu shot.
Our board-certified physicians and staff are extensively trained in administering lipotropic injections to patients of all ages and backgrounds. Dr. Eveline Ane, a board-certified family physician, and a board certified internist Dr. Girish Rao, both have years of experience providing high-level, customized treatment to patients who want to safely lose weight and increase their energy levels.
Our lipotropic injections contain the following essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12:
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12a
Should I Get B12 Injections?
There are a number of health-related reasons to consider getting a lipotropic injection containing B12 at a Right Weight Center location.

- Have a vitamin B12 deficiency
- Are vegetarian or vegan
- Want to boost your immune system this winter
