There is a lot of hype and even a new B12 Cardiovascular Benefits Study on CNN confirming what patients at Delete – Tattoo removal and Laser Salon have already discovered. Your body loves B12 shots! In addition to tattoo removal, B12 Boosts aka B12 shots and customized Nutrient Infusions are our most popular services but what are they and what do they do for your body?
What is B12?
Cobalamin (B12) is a water-soluble vitamin that is usually consumed through your food. Foods that contain B12 are meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy. So if you’re not consuming enough of these foods or if your body cannot absorb them, you are most likely deficient in this essential vitamin. Deficiency of this vitamin can lead to serious health concerns like dementia, memory loss, neuropathy, anorexia, fatigue, anemia, and insomnia.
B12 works to protect us from nerve damage, cardiovascular disease, and is necessary for our body’s healing pathways. Vitamin B12 is important for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels. Other benefits of B12 include stimulating your metabolism and balancing mood by naturally encouraging the production of dopamine and serotonin in the brain.
Advantages of B12 Shots and Other Important Vitamins
Many times due to stress and malabsorbtion, this vitamin is not completely absorbed through our gut. This vitamin is available in supplement or injectable form to increase availability in our bodies. At Delete, we have this vitamin in injectable form. We can also add other vitamins to your B12 shot for an added boost. These additional vitamins are folic acid, B-complex, and MIC.
Folic acid is a water-soluble B vitamin that helps with cases of anemia, prevents neurological defects in fetuses, and can help with cardiovascular health. Since it is also a B vitamin, it has many common healing properties as B12 like helping to improve depression and memory.
B-complex is a combination of different B vitamins together. B-complex injections typically contain vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B7. All of these vitamins aid in the production of energy, new cell turnover, and normal growth and development. B vitamins also keep the immune system functioning properly and the skin and digestive system healthy.
MIC contains compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, MIC shots contain lipotropic substances that decrease the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver.
Methionine is one of the sulphur-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. Patients with a Sulfa allergy should not take this injection.
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.

Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste 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. We can add any of these additional vitamins onto your B12 shot to give you an extra boost. So if you are having your tattoo removed or faded, this is a perfect addition to your treatment protocal.
