High Dose Activated B12
Vitamin B12 deficiency is prevalent due to inadequate dietary intake (such as among vegans), poor absorption (as seen in pernicious anemia), or impaired activation of raw vitamin B12 due to genetic defects. Insufficient B12 levels can lead to various symptoms including fatigue, dizziness, anemia, blood count disorders, tingling in the hands and feet due to nerve damage, muscle weakness, difficulties with memory and concentration, depressed mood, and even dementia. Some individuals have a genetic mutation called MTHFR SNP, which prevents them from activating B12 effectively. Therefore, we recommend using the active forms of B12. The most commonly used injectable form of vitamin B12 is hydroxocobalamin, typically provided by a general practitioner for severe B12 deficiency. However, at Leicester Ozone Clinic, we administer the activated forms of vitamin B12 through intramuscular, subcutaneous, or intravenous injections.
Activated Vitamin B12: Methylcobalamin 5000 microgram.
1- At Leicester Ozone Clinic, we source our vitamins B12 from one of the most reputable German manufacturer.
2- Because some people have a genetic mutation that makes them unable to activate B12, our vitamin is in the form of activated B12, called Methylcobalamin. Furthermore, we use a megadose of B12 (5000 micrograms) which is safe and more effective than standard doses (which is usually 1000 microgram of Hydroxocobalamin).

Vitamin B12 can be administered by intramuscular (IM) or subcutaneous (SC) route. Some people prefer to have it in a drip, especially if they are having other intravenous (IV) infusions. The IV route will take longer to administer (about 20 minutes) and costs more. Because the metabolism of B12 is closely linked to that of folate, please consider adding folic acid to your therapy plan.
