How many amino acids are there?

There are 22 different amino acids that have been identified in nature, with 20 of these being present in the human body. These 20 amino acids can be categorised into two groups: essential and non-essential. Non-essential amino acids can be synthesised by the human body, whereas essential amino acids can only be obtained through a balanced diet. This is the key difference between essential and nonessential amino acids. There are 9 essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. These are all included in Get A Drip’s Amino Acids formula, which is a blend of 18 different amino acids. Available as an IV Extra, Amino Acids are also included in our Energy Drip, Anti-Ageing Drip, and Hair Health Drip.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are small organic molecules that combine to form proteins: the building blocks of life itself. Amino acids are used in every single cell of your body to build all the different proteins you need to survive, all of which play a huge range of roles within your system. Each protein consists of between 50 and 2,000 amino acids that are connected together in a specific sequence according to genetic instructions. For instance, hormones, enzymes, nutrient transporters, and structural proteins are all made of amino acids. There are 20 different amino acids in the humans body, 9 of which are considered ‘essential’. This means that they can only be obtained via a balanced diet. An amino acid deficiency can affect the functions of all bodily organs, including brain function and the immune system. Rich dietary sources of essential amino acids are meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, milk, and soya products.

What does Vitamin B do?

There are 7 different B Vitamins that we offer here at Get A Drip: B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin (B7), and B12 (Cobalamin- we offer three different forms). We do not currently offer Folate (Vitamin B9). Each of these B Vitamins are essential micronutrients that play a vital role in helping you maintain good health and wellbeing. They are essential for your overall bodily function, helping support areas such as: energy levels, normal nerve function, eyesight, muscle health, brain function, digestion, immunity, cardiovascular health, cell health and division, hormonal balance, red blood cell formation, skin, and much more. The richest sources of B Vitamins are animal-based: meat (especially organ meats), fish, poultry, seafood, eggs, and dairy products. This is why people who eat a primarily plant-based diet are more susceptible to Vitamin B deficiencies. Other risk factors include the use of certain medications, and pre-existing health conditions such as digestive issues or excessive alcohol use. Signs you may not be getting enough B Vitamins include: fatigue, low energy, getting ill often, cracks on and around the lips, anaemia, irritability or depression, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, nausea, constipation or diarrhoea, and poor skin health. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please see your GP and have some diagnostic blood tests done.

What does Vitamin B12 do?

Vitamin B12 is responsible for many bodily functions and provides numerous health benefits. It plays particularly major roles in your energy levels, immunity and stress, since it contributes to normal red blood cell production and energy-yielding metabolism, as well as normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems. Vitamin B12 also helps your body absorb other macronutrients and micronutrients, such as iron and folic acid – further contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. Symptoms of a B12 deficiency include extreme fatigue, feeling weak and depression.

What is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 – along with B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin (B7), and Folate (Vitamin B9) – is a water-soluble B Vitamin that is crucial for maintaining healthy energy levels. B12 helps the body convert the food you eat into glucose, which gives you energy. It also aids in normal cell division, red blood cell production, nervous function, immune system health, reducing tiredness and fatigue, and more. B12, also known as Cobalamin cannot be produced by your body. Therefore, it must be obtained and healthy levels of it sustained via daily diet and supplementation. Your body can only store a small amount of B12 in the liver. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs, so vegans and vegetarians are at risk of low intakes and therefore Vitamin B12 deficiency. Older people, people with malabsorption or digestive issues, and those who take certain medications (e.g. metformin) are also at increased risk of deficiency. The richest sources of Vitamin B12 include: meat (particularly organ meats such as liver), fish, milk, dairy, and eggs. Many breakfast cereals and nutritional yeasts are also fortified with this important micronutrient. Signs that you may be deficient in B12 may include (but are not limited to): weakness, tiredness, or light headedness, heart palpitations and shortness of breath, nerve problems like numbness or tingling, muscle weakness and loss of appetite/weight loss. Whilst most of these symptoms are reversible by replenishing your B12 levels through diet or supplementation, some can be permanent – particularly when it comes to neurological damage.

How can I increase my energy levels?

There are several Vitamins and minerals that are essential for contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, as well as normal energy-yielding metabolism. These include: Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin (B7), Folate (B9) and B12 (Cobalamin), as well as Vitamin D, Iron, Magnesium, and Vitamin C. A deficiency in any of these micronutrients can cause you to feel low in energy, so it’s important to maintain a balanced diet and take supplements as needed in order to keep your blood nutrient levels in range and your energy levels healthy. More generally, making small changes to your daily routine has the ability to significantly affect how energetic you feel. An obvious one is to ensure you are getting enough sleep, and that your sleep is of good quality. Although the amount of sleep each individual needs can vary, a rough recommendation is to aim for at around 7-9 hours of sleep each night to maintain healthy energy levels and support overall health. Research also suggests that adding more exercise to your daily routine and staying active could also reduce fatigue and increase your energy levels. It is also important to drink enough water to ensure you are fully hydrated, as dehydration can have a huge effect on your brain function, mood and energy levels – as well as your health in general. If you drink a lot of caffeine, make sure you are having hydrating drinks also, as caffeine itself is a mild diuretic.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please see your GP and have some diagnostic blood tests done.

How much Vitamin B12 should I take?

We recommend having a B12 Booster Shot Injection no more than once a month. Our doses and frequency of administration are meticulously set by our CMO so that Get A Drip can help you supplement your diet in a safe way, free from risk of overdosing/having too much B12 in your system. If you have B12 Booster Shots with us, you will not need to supplement via other means in between doses. This applies to our Hydroxycobalamin, Methylcobalamin and Triple B12 services. How much Vitamin B12 an individual requires really varies from person to person, depending on factors such as age, diet, digestive health, genetics, use of medication, alcohol consumption, health conditions, and more. However, the NHS provides a general recommendation of about 1.5μg per day of B12 for adults. In regards to supplementation, the NHS advises that taking 2mg or less a day of Vitamin B12 in supplements is unlikely to cause any harm.

How can I ease a migraine?

There are a number of methods you can try to help ease your migraine. The most immediate response that may help you feel better during a migraine attack is to lie down in a darkened room. Some find that having something to eat helps, while others start to feel better once they have been sick (if they have been feeling nauseous). A growing body of research suggests that some Vitamins and minerals can aid in migraine prevention, such as Vitamin B2, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and CoQ10 (short for Coenzyme Q10). Over-the-counter (OTC) medications such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can help relieve the pain, although taking these too frequently may cause medication overuse headaches, making you feel worse. If OTC painkillers do not help ease your symptoms, your GP can prescribe you other treatments including triptans and anti-sickness medication.

Is Vitamin B12 good for you?

Definitely. Vitamin B12 is an essential Vitamin that is responsible for many bodily functions and provides numerous health benefits, so you should try to maintain a healthy amount of B12 in your body via diet and supplementation. A deficiency in B12 can lead to Vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia and range of negative health effects.

What is Vitamin B12 used for?

Vitamin B12 supplements are very popular. This is due to the fact that B12 cannot be produced by your body and only a small amount can be stored in your liver. Therefore, it must be obtained and healthy levels of it sustained via daily diet and supplementation through oral, intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) means, and for many people it can be difficult to get enough B12 via food only. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs, so vegans and vegetarians are at higher risk of low intakes and therefore Vitamin B12 deficiency. Older people, people with malabsorption or digestive issues, and those who take certain medications (e.g. metformin) are also at increased risk of deficiency. Signs that you may be deficient in B12 may include (but are not limited to): weakness, tiredness, or light headedness, heart palpitations and shortness of breath, nerve problems like numbness or tingling, muscle weakness and loss of appetite/weight loss. Whilst most of these symptoms are reversible by replenishing your B12 levels through diet or supplementation, some can be permanent – particularly when it comes to neurological damage. Vitamin B12 supplements are useful for preventing B12 deficiency and its related symptoms.

What is Vitamin B?

B Vitamins are a class of water-soluble Vitamins. There are 7 different B Vitamins that all play essential roles within your body, particularly relating to healthy red blood cell production and energy-yielding metabolism: B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin (B7), Folate (B9) and B12 (Cobalamin).

It is important to maintain healthy levels of all these B Vitamins to keep your cells healthy and your general wellbeing robust.

Are Vitamin B12 injections safe?

Yes, Vitamin B12 injections and infusions are safe. Our doses and frequency of administration are meticulously set by our CMO so that Get A Drip can help you supplement your diet in a safe way, free from risk of overdosing/having too much B12 in your system. Our IV Drips and Booster Shot Injections are administered by our team of medical professionals, comprised of NMC Registered Nurses and GMC Registered Doctors. Our team has over 100 years combined medical experience in the NHS. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for treatment and diagnosis.

How many essential amino acids are there?

There are 9 essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. These are all included in Get A Drip’s Amino Acids formula, which is a blend of 18 different amino acids. Available as an IV Extra, Amino Acids are also included in our Energy Drip, Anti-Ageing Drip, and Hair Health Drip.

What are amino acids made of?

Amino acids are small organic molecules that consist of a central carbon atom linked to an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen atom, and a variable component called a side chain. There are 20 amino acids that make up all proteins in the human body. They all have the same basic structure, differing only in the side chain they have. Multiple amino acids in different combinations are linked together by peptide bonds to form proteins.

What are amino acids used for?

Hormones, enzymes, nutrient transporters, and structural proteins are all made of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of your body, so it’s crucial that obtain enough of them via diet and supplementation. The best sources of amino acids are found in animal products such as meat, poultry and eggs. Foods that contain all nine essential amino acids are called complete proteins.

What are essential amino acids?

There are 9 essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. They are categorised as ‘essential’ because they can only be obtained via a balanced diet: your body cannot produce them. Rich dietary sources of essential amino acids are meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, milk, and soya products.

Can B12 deficiency cause weight loss?

A deficiency in Vitamin B12 may cause loss of appetite, potentially leading to weight loss if left untreated. Conversely, while a deficiency in Vitamin B12 may not cause weight gain, it can decrease energy levels and contribute to fatigue, making it harder to stay active and manage/maintain your weight properly.

How are amino acids made?

Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body. As a result, they must come from food and supplementation.

What is Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) good for?

Vitamin B2, otherwise known as Riboflavin, contributes to normal: energy-yielding metabolism, nervous system function, normal skin and mucous membrane maintenance, red blood cell maintenance, skin health, vision, metabolism of iron, protection of cells from oxidative stress, and reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Can you take too much Vitamin B12?

Yes, it is possible to have too much Vitamin B12 in your system. Your body is generally very efficient at excreting excess B12 through your urine. However, taking more than the recommended amount of B12 can cause unwanted side effects. Our doses and frequency of administration are meticulously set by our CMO so that Get A Drip can help you supplement your diet in a safe way, free from risk of overdosing/having too much B12 in your system. If you have B12 Booster Shots with us, you will not need to supplement via other means in between doses. This applies to our HydroxyCobalamin, MethylCobalamin and Triple B12 services.

Where can I buy Vitamin B12?

You can purchase Vitamin B12 supplements from pharmacies, supermarkets and health food shops. These come as tablets, capsules, mouth sprays and drops. They come in different strengths from 10 to 1,000 micrograms (μg). However, the bioavailablity of these oral supplements tend to be poor, particularly if you are older in age, experience malabsorption or digestive issues, or take certain medications (e.g. metformin). Intramuscular (IM) injections of Vitamin B12 are much more effective because they are 100% bioavailable: since IM injections bypass the entire digestive tract, it makes 100% of the micronutrient available for your body to use. You can book a Vitamin B12 Booster Shot Injection at Get A Drip.

What is the best Vitamin B12 supplement?

Vitamin B12 Booster Shot Injections or IV Drips are a particularly effective way to supplement this essential micronutrient. Unlike oral supplements such as tablets, capsules, sprays and tinctures, intravenous (IV) and intramuscular (IM) administration of nutrients bypass the gastrointestinal tract entirely, facilitating the direct delivery of Vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream. This means that the bioavailability of nutrients is not hindered by the digestive system, allowing optimum absorption of micronutrients by the body. Receiving supplements via IV Drip or IM Booster Shot allows for 100% bioavailablity, also circumventing any digestive issues and related malabsorption one might face due to poor gut health, e.g. inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This makes IV and IM supplementation the most effective ways of receiving essential nutrients such as Vitamin B12 In contrast, a Vitamin that is taken orally is subject to being processed and broken down during its journey through the digestive system: significantly limiting how much of the Vitamins and minerals can actually be absorbed into the bloodstream and used by the body (a maximum of around 50%). We offer three different B12 products at Get A Drip: B12 Hydroxycobalamin, B12 Methylcobalamin and Triple B12 – a combination of Hydroxy, Methyl, and Adenosylcobalamin.

How is Vitamin B12 made?

Vitamin B12 is made by microorganisms living in soil and water. Animals then absorb these microbes into their systems via the food they eat. Neither plants nor animals can produce their own supply of Vitamin B12. Humans can only obtain Vitamin B12 via diet and supplementation. B12 is synthesised in laboratories by allowing bacterial cultures to ferment and naturally produce the Vitamin. This is then harvested and sent off to be used as a key ingredient in dietary supplements.

How do I overcome tiredness?

There are numerous reasons you might be feeling tired. These include causes that are: psychological, e.g. stress, anxiety, depression; physical, e.g. hypothyroidism, anaemia, sleep apnoea; and lifestyle-related, e.g. night shifts, alcohol consumption, and getting too little or too much exercise. Many Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause tiredness and fatigue. If you are feeling tired all the time (TATT), it is well worth speaking to your GP and having a set of blood tests done. Get A Drip also offers a range of Blood Testing Profiles for diagnostic purposes. Low levels of Vitamin B12, other B Vitamins, Vitamin D, Iron and overall hydration can especially wreak havoc on your energy levels.

How many amino acids are in a protein?

Each protein consists of between 50 and 2,000 amino acids that are connected together in a specific sequence according to genetic instructions.

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is a naturally occurring amino acid that your body needs to make protein. It is involved in a number of different functions within the body, including circulation and energy production.

What is Cobalamin?

Cobalamin is another word for Vitamin B12. It exists in various different forms, including: cyanocobalamin, hydroxycobalamin, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, cobalamin (Vitamin B12) cannot be produced by your body, so it must be obtained via diet and supplementation.
