While it’s not absolutely necessary to take a Vitamin B12 shot during the hCG diet, it’s highly recommended! Without it, it’s like trying to drive a car without power steering – still driveable, but difficult.

Vitamin B12 works synergistically with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin to encourage and promote fat-burning. You’re also getting the benefits of improved mental clarity, increased energy levels, and enhanced moods.

When you’re on a calorie-restricted diet, the injectable B12 will step in and ensure replenishment of this vital nutrient. You’ll need all the happy hormones and encouragement you can get!

Both of the companies above offer B12 with their hCG kits. With RiverFront MD you can opt to have B12 pre-mixed with your hCG for a small fee. This means no extra shots to take! US HCG Shots has a hCG and B12 combo available in both 28 day and 56 day kits, although they are not pre-mixed so you do have to take them in separate doses.
