If you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, have cancer or are undergoing chemotherapy, prior approval from your treating physician (e.g., obstetrician, oncologist) is necessary.

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-positives or false-negatives; this is especially true when supplementing with biotin (B7), which is found in our (B) Ageless shot.


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 + can be converted to the active coenzyme forms. It does not contain a cyanide molecule like cyanocobalamin + it produces higher + more sustained serum vitamin B12 levels in the body.

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. Based on the evidence available, hydroxocobalamin appears to be the preferred form of vitamin B12 for therapeutic use. There is an advantage to administering hydroxocobalamin + methylcobalamin in combination, which is why we offer both forms of vitamin B12. We are all about producing results + helping you feel better!

About Glutathione

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant + may be contraindicated in the presence of cancer—it protects all cells including cancer cells. It also promotes detoxification. 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.

What’s Not Available + Why

Not all nutrients are available for injection, and not all are safe. Here are some nutrients we don’t offer with explanations.

Vitamin D is not available in our injections. It 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. Also, since D is a fat-soluble vitamin, it is not suitable to be in the same syringe with water-soluble vitamins for injection.

Iron is not available in our injections. It is highly toxic + should not be supplemented without the direct recommendation + supervision of a doctor who has evaluated recent blood work showing iron deficiency. Iron injections should only be done in a facility equipped for emergency care as it can cause severe or life-threatening reactions. It’s important to have a highly skilled professional who is adept at Z-track injections administer an iron shot to reduce the risk of permanent skin discoloration + qualified to immediately treat any adverse reaction.

Folate/Folic Acid is not available in our injections. It can cause serious issues in those with MTHFR + people with pernicious anemia.

Approximately 60% of the population has MTHFR—a genetic issue with metabolizing this B vitamin (B9). Those with MTHFR can’t convert folic acid appropriately, which forces it along pathways in the body that can cause side effects. The other form of injectable B9, methylfolate, can cause someone with MTHFR to become overmethylated, especially if methylfolate is administered along with methylcobalamin (B12)—a common practice with the thought these two vitamins work best together to produce red blood cells + combat anemia. If the individual is taking thyroid medication +/or antidepressants, the effects of overmethylation can be that much greater. Overmethylation can cause reduced motivation, reduced libido, weight gain, confusion, depression, dry skin, frustration, obsessive/compulsive behavior, nervousness, paranoia, restless legs, sleep disorders, panic attacks, anxiety + more.

Folic acid should not be administered to people with undiagnosed anemia. Because the most common sign of anemia is fatigue + most people seeking a (B) 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.
