Who We Are: The B12 LOVE Story

Our company name, B12 LOVE, shows how much we LOVE vitamin B12 and how much we LOVE helping others experience the many benefits of B12 injections and self-care through vitamin + nutrient injections. We formerly called ourselves Got Vitamin B12 when we first established our business in the Mission District of San Francisco in 2013.

Our founder, 
Dr. Shannon Wood Gallegos, a Naturopathic Doctor and licensed midwife, began administering vitamin B12 injections during the mid 2000s to pregnant and nursing mothers. She found it to be a safe way to increase energy, support the immune system, and improve anemic states. Due to its incredible efficacy, she began offering injections to all of her patients.

In this fast-paced society, people are exhausted, stressed, and have difficulty sleeping (especially in the San Francisco Bay Area). Dr. Shannon believes that these safe and effective injections should be readily available to everyone without the inconvenience of a doctor’s office. The 3 hour pop-up “B12 Happy Hour” was created to bring these essential injections to you, without the need for an appointment or a prescription.

Today, B12 LOVE proudly offers locations throughout the Bay Area. At all of our locations, we offer a robust menu with 20+ signature injections and the B12 LOVE experience of a welcoming environment thanks to our incredible 30+ talented team of Client Experience Specialists (CES), Naturopathic Medical Assistants, Naturopathic Doctors, and Registered Nurses.

We recently opened B12 LOVE Lounges in San Francisco (Marina/Cow Hollow), Mill Valley, and Walnut Creek, giving our clients more access to B12 shots, vitamin + nutrient injections, and expanded services, including walk-in access (due to client demand) to  IV Vitamin Drips. We LOVE what we do here at B12 LOVE thanks to the LOVE and support of our 15,000+ (and always growing!) amazing clients. B12 LOVE is here to help you achieve and maintain optimal health within the demands of your busy, everyday life.
