When we think of the seasons changing, many things immediately come to mind—the temperature fluctuations, the items on a restaurant menu, the holidays we celebrate, and the clothes we wear.
However, what we don’t think about are the things that remain the same—who we are, where we came from, and what we’re accountable for. One of the biggest things we’ll always be accountable for is our health and well-being. It is always in style to prioritize how we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally in order to keep growing and progressing. Scheduling regular appointments for B vitamin injections will help to continually fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to function at the highest level. In fact, Spark Health’s Be Well™ vitamin injection is our form of a magical elixir to bring you body-boosting benefits in just a pinch.
The Powers that B: Benefits of Vitamin B Complex
Our Be Well™ vitamin injection is packed with the perfect combination of B vitamins to keep you feeling energized, alert, and healthy throughout the course of the year. Composed of vitamin B complex—a set of eight B vitamins, including B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (dexpanthenol), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (methylcobalamin)—these vitamins work together to optimize overall body function and control energy levels. Here is how each one plays an equal role in reconstructing and restoring your body from the inside out.
You can think of vitamin B1 as the Energizer Bunny molecule. When your body has sufficient levels of vitamin B1, it is able to effectively transport energy back and forth between cells. It is responsible for converting carbohydrates into energy and using them to power the brain and nervous system.
Riboflavin, like the other B complex vitamins, also plays a role in producing energy that the body can use on a daily basis. In addition, it serves as an antioxidant that is capable of fending off toxic free radicals and warding off the harmful effects they can have on cells and DNA. Vitamin B2 can also help prevent the development of chronic diseases—like heart disease and cancer.
Another energy source for the body, vitamin B3, provides the nervous system, digestive system, and skin with enough fuel to get through the day. It is also often used to help control high cholesterol and its resulting side effects.
Vitamin B5 is an important component of the coenzyme that helps our body process fats, carbohydrates, and proteins that give our bodies the resources to remain strong and protect against foreign invaders. It serves a critical role in converting foods into glucose, synthesizing cholesterol, and creating red blood cells. This results in healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver function.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) plays a role in nearly 200 chemical reactions in your body! Because of this, it is necessary for performing a variety of body functions, such as brain development and supplying oxygen to the bloodstream. It also helps with maintaining healthy immune and nervous system function. Some of the noteworthy benefits of of this versatile vitamin include better circulation, improved mood, and stronger immune response.
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) is essential for proper brain and nerve cell development. It is necessary for the creation of new red blood cells and DNA. It has also been recognized for the role it plays in helping to develop brain and nerve cells.
Vitamin B12 deficiency in humans has been shown in research to decrease lymphocytes and suppress natural killer (NK) cell activity. NK cells are a type of white blood cell that attack cells infected by viruses. People who follow a vegetarian diet are especially at risk since this nutrient is primarily found in sources of animal protein. However, proper supplementation can help reverse the ill effects associated with low levels of this nutrient. Together, these vitamins pack a powerful punch that is delivered through one simple intramuscular injection to maximize health benefits. Plus, research shows that vitamin injections are important for keeping disease at bay since they deliver nutrients directly into the body’s tissues, ensuring 100% absorption of active ingredients.
