BOGO 50% OFF
Buy One Get One 50% OFF! Many people enjoy the benefits of getting more than one shot at a time, which is why we offer a 50% savings on your second (+ third) shot ... for the health of it!
To qualify for the savings, shots need to be administered to the same person at the same time. Discounts are applied to shots of lesser monetary value.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have Leber’s disease or cancer, or are currently undergoing chemotherapy, prior approval from your treating physician (e.g., obstetrician, oncologist) is required.
If you are planning on going in for blood work, please refrain from getting a shot for at least one week prior to your blood draw so your results do not reflect false outcomes; this is especially true when supplementing with biotin (B7)—found in our (B) Ageless™ shot, or when having your serum B12 level or hormones tested (including TSH).
Forms of Vitamin B12
We use both hydroxocobalamin + methylcobalamin. While cyanocobalamin is the most widely used form of vitamin B12, mostly because of its low cost + commercial availability, only traces of cyanocobalamin occur naturally in the human body. The human body primarily contains hydroxocobalamin, adenosylcobalamin + methylcobalamin.
Hydroxocobalamin is a stable form of B12. It occurs naturally in the human body + converts to the active coenzyme forms (methylcobalamin + adenosylcobalamin). It does not contain a cyanide molecule like cyanocobalamin + it produces higher, more sustained serum vitamin B12 levels in the body. Based on the evidence available, hydroxocobalamin is the preferred form of vitamin B12 for therapeutic use.
Methylcobalamin is a coenzyme form of B12 + is typically recommended for those with MTHFR. However, there is no clear evidence that methylcobalamin is preferable to hydroxocobalamin. Methylcobalamin cannot convert into adenosylcobalamin (the other coenzyme form of B12), whereas hydroxocobalamin increases the concentration of both biologically active forms of B12: methylcobalamin + adenosylcobalamin.
There is an advantage to administering hydroxocobalamin + methylcobalamin in combination, which is why we offer both forms of vitamin B12 for injection.
NOTE: Occasionally, hydroxocobalamin is not available + therefore will be substituted with methylcobalamin.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant. As we age, glutathione is depleted from the body, so repletion is important. Glutathione supports the immune system, has anti-aging benefits, helps absorption of vitamin B12 when co-administered + has been shown to improve fertility as well as lessen tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease. Glutathione supports liver function + promotes detoxification.
Glutathione may be contraindicated in the presence of cancer—it protects all cells including cancer cells. Intramuscular (IM) injections of glutathione have been found to reduce toxicity following chemotherapeutic drug therapy. If you have cancer, please consult your oncologist to see if glutathione is appropriate for you.
Although glutathione may be taken orally, studies show that the most effective way to increase glutathione levels is by injection (Pizzorno, 2014).
*Glutathione improves nitric oxide bioavailability. Nitric oxide could react to create s-nitrosoglutathione, a molecule that can act as a vasodilator. Vasodilation can lead to lowered blood pressure; therefore, glutathione may not be safe for people who have hypotension (Prasad et al., 1999). Glutathione is in the following shots: (B) Ageless, (B) Allergy Free, (B) Invincible + (B) a Rock Star.
About Biological Homeopathic Preparations
Biological homeopathic preparations are composed of very low doses of active natural ingredients (plants +/or minerals) that help restore the body's ability to self-regulate + heal. Each biological homeopathic preparation contains sterile water for injection + sodium chloride. There are no preservatives or animal-derived components + have a very low risk of adverse reactions. Biomedical therapy is a modality used in traditional medicine; its use is based on the Materia Medica + supported by various studies. The laboratories + manufacturing facilities are certified by globally recognized institutions such as the US Food + Drug Administration (FDA) + meet validated manufacturing standards such as Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The active ingredients in each preparation are many. Solutions contain “X” potencies (1:10 dilution) + are considered low-dose. Allergic reaction is extremely rare.
About Our Shots
Our shots are natural, safe + effective, vegan-friendly + cruelty-free—they have not been tested on animals. Shots are prescription-only solutions; all clients are required to complete our informed consent + conduct a brief intake with our doctor. All shots are doctor-administered.
What’s Not Available + Why
Not all nutrients are available for injection—some are not safe + some may not mix well with others. Here are some nutrients we don’t offer in our shots with explanations.
• VITAMIN D is not available in our injections. Vitamin D is a lipid (fat) soluble vitamin + stores in the body making it potentially toxic. One should not supplement with vitamin D unless a recent blood panel has been evaluated + supplementation with proper dosing has been prescribed by a qualified healthcare provider after reviewing recent labs. Supplementing with vitamin D can cause health issues in persons with certain conditions including artherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), histoplasmosis, hyperparathyroidism, lymphoma, kidney disease, sarcoidosis + tuberculosis. Supplementation with D in those with elevated serum calcium levels may make the condition worse + put the individual at risk for kidney stones. Supplementation with D in those with vitamin K deficiency may induce long-term soft tissue calcification + cardiovascular disease.
• IRON is not available in our injections. It is highly toxic + should not be supplemented without the recommendation of a doctor who has evaluated recent blood work. It’s important to have a highly-skilled, trained professional who’s adept at Z-track injections administer an iron shot in a reclined position to reduce the risk of permanent skin discoloration (tattooing). Iron injections should only be done in a facility equipped for emergency care as they can cause severe or life-threatening reactions that can come on quickly.
Approximately 60% of the population has a genetic defect of the MTHFR gene, which can cause an issue with methylation in the body. Those who can’t efficiently convert folic acid into its methylated form for proper absorption tend to have high serum levels of folic acid, low serotonin, high histamine + are considered to be under-methylated. Administering folic acid to an under-methylated individual can not only make them feel much worse, it may increase their risk for developing cancer.
Some symptoms + traits of under-methylation include: chronic depression, history of perfectionism, seasonal allergies, high libido, addictiveness, phobias, obsessive compulsive tendencies, calm demeanor but high inner tension + frequent headaches.
Folic acid should not be administered to people with undiagnosed anemia. The most common sign of anemia is fatigue + because most people seeking a B12 shot have fatigue, it is highly likely some have undiagnosed anemia. Administration of folic acid to those with undiagnosed pernicious anemia may result in severe nervous system damage. Vitamin preparations containing folic acid should be avoided by those with pernicious anemia because folic acid may potentiate neurologic complications of vitamin B12 deficiency.
• VITAMIN C (ascorbic acid) is not available in our injections. Ascorbic acid is generally well tolerated + absorbed when taken orally. It can’t be mixed with all B vitamins in solution for injection + can be very painful as an intramuscular (IM) injection. Typically, the most that can be tolerated in an IM shot is about 150-250 mg, whereas when taken orally most people can tolerate 3,000-6,000 mg before it causes loose stools.
Overloading the body with supplemental vitamin C may result in the formation of calcifications + kidney stones in the urinary tract. Vitamin C is metabolized to oxalate + excreted in urine potentially increasing the risk for calcium oxalate stone formation, especially in men (Curhan et al., 1999; Auer et al., 2001; Thomas et al., 2013; Ferraro et al., 2016).
