Skip the yawns and embrace the yays with our new Vitamin B12 add-on drip.

Do you find yourself hitting an energy slump and struggling to power through your day? You’re not just tired, you’re tiyaaad! We feel you… We’ve all been there, desperately seeking that extra boost to conquer our to-do lists and seize the day. Therefore (we can be fancy too), it is with great pleasure that The IV Bar introduces our new fatigue-busting add-on drip to you: Methylcobalamin.

What is Methylcobalamin?

Pronounced “meth-yl-co-bal-a-min”, but better known as Vitamin B12 😉, this powerful vitamin is the methyl form of cobalamin. To put it in plain English, this form of Vitamin B12 can be absorbed into the body most effectively. This quality is especially important for people who cannot absorb Vitamin B12 from food and oral supplements.

Unlike many other vitamins, minerals and aminio acids, Vitamin B12 is not made in our bodies, we absorb it from food. But many people don’t get enough Vitamin B12 from their diet, so we need to supplement, with IV being the most efficient form of supplementation.

If you’re ready to leave exhaustion in the dust and start experiencing the many benefits intravenous Vitamin B12 offers you, read on, oh tired one!

Kick fatigue to the curb and boost your energy

Vitamin B12 is known to improve energy levels and reduce fatigue. In fact, we’ve had many drippers come in looking dog-tired, we hook them up with a little Vitamin B12, and presto, they’re bouncing out of our comfy chairs with energy galore!

Here’s why… Vitamin B12 turns the foods we eat into usable energy. It breaks down the glucose in carbohydrates into a molecule (ATP) which fuels our cells with energy. So, it’s not the actual vitamin that gives you energy, but rather it’s that the vitamin releases energy for your body that converts protein and fat into energy.

Help treat anxiety and depression

Suffering from anxiety and depression is hard… Thankfully, there is a super little Vitamin B12 nutrient that is here to help you cope. Vitamin B12, used in conjunction with other B-vitamins, help metabolise serotonin, which is important for your mood regulation. A higher intake of Vitamin B12 has been proven to reduce depressive symptoms over time!

Strengthen those nerve fibres

Nerve fibres help your neurons to connect with each other and send help send signals to and from the brain. And Vitamin B12 ensures yours are nice and strong by covering and protecting them with myelin (sheaths made up of protein and the good fatty stuff). In this way, Vitamin B12 helps keep your blood and nerve cells healthy, even helping to reduce pain caused by arthritis. This is also why Methylcobalamin is safe and excellent for diabetics and people struggling with various neuropathies.

The added(-on) bonus

Now, before you sprint to an IV Bar near you for your dose of Vitamin B12 add-on, there are some things you need to know. There is such a thing as too much Vitamin B12, so you can only get your B12 add-on drip max twice per month.

You also can’t add B12 to any drip that already contains Vitamin B12, but the following drips are A-okay to use with our Methylcobalamin add-on:
