Vitamin B12 is a vital part of one's health. Some people can not absorb it properly through their diet and their intesintes, so a viatmin B12 injection is neceassry to keep the amount in the body at the appropriate level.
There are also fad weight loss programs that use vitamin B12 shots.
Check with your doctor regardng your nutritional needs and this injection.
When it comes to the actual Vitamin B12 injections I would consult a doctor first to see if you actually NEED it.
If your doctor suspects you have vitamin B12 deficiency, he or she will probably ask you to have a blood test called a full blood count (FBC)
Good sources of vitamin B12 include meat and animal products, such as beef, liver, salmon, cod, cheese, yeast extract and eggs. Some breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamin B12.

I take a vitamin B complex supplement everyday. It definitely helps raise my energy level. When I forget to take it I'm generally dragging by lunchtime (mostly due to a medication I take that causes drowsiness). The injections would have to work just as well as regular supplements. Even better if you can't absorb the vitamins normally. I don't think they've helped much with my weightless per se, but they've upped my energy enough that I am more able to do things like exercise during the day.
