Dear Karen
The entire vitamin B complex (which includes B12 and folic acid) may stimulate cell oxidation, but these vitamins also tend to stimulate the appetite, so the 2 effects may cancel each other out. I doubt that having these injections will assist with weightloss and they are not necessary if you eat a balanced diet which contains a variety of foods (even when slimming). Weightloss is achieved by reducing your energy intake and increasing your energy output.
Best regards
