Vitamin B12

10 minute appointment


What is it?

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that helps keep the body's nerves and blood cells healthy. It also plays a role in the production of DNA.

In general, vitamin B12 increases energy, supports a healthy nervous system, and helps make DNA. A lack of vitamin B12 can lead to anaemia and other problems with the nervous system or blood cells.

Vitamin B12 is commonly found in animal foods such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products.


Hydroxocobalamin is a type of vitamin B12. It's used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency. This can happen if you don't eat enough foods that contain vitamin B12, such as meat, poultry, and certain types of seafood.


Vitamin B12 deficiency can also be caused by certain medical conditions, such as pernicious anaemia. This is a condition where the body can't absorb vitamin B12 properly.


Hydroxocobalamin is given as an injection into a muscle. A healthcare provider will usually give you this injection once every 3 to 4 weeks for six months to a year.

How it works

Hydroxocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is important for many processes in the body, including the production of red blood cells and the maintenance of nerve tissue.


Hydroxocobalamin works by replacing vitamin B12 in the body. This can help treat deficiencies and improve symptoms.

Our doctor will determine the dosage that is best for you based on your age, weight, medical history, and laboratory test results.

Hydroxocobalamin should not be given more frequently than every 3 months.

Hydroxocobalamin is generally well-tolerated. The most common side effects are injection site reactions, such as pain, redness, and swelling.



  • Hydroxocobalamin can help treat vitamin B12 deficiency. This can improve your energy levels, mood, and memory.

  • It can also help treat pernicious anaemia. This is a condition where the body can't absorb vitamin B12 properly.
