ur bodies require a daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals in order to function well. If one of these vitamins is lacking, it can result in serious health issues. Most of our B12 comes from eating meat in our diet. Those who are unable to absorb enough of the B12 due to dietary restrictions (vegetarians) or health problems (anemia) may need to get a natural supplement through a B12 injection. The B12 Injection is a quick way to get your B12 levels back to where they should be. An injection of B12 can bring on immediate health benefits.
Increases Energy Levels And Concentration If you are constantly lethargic even after a full night of sleep, you may have need B12 injections. This vitamin is required in the production of red blood cells. Red blood cells transport oxygen around your body, providing the fuel your cells need to produce energy. A loss of red blood cell production will create symptoms of low energy and inability to concentrate.
Improves Metabolism And Helps With Weight Loss A deficiency of the B12 vitamin causes anemia. An anemic person can not properly convert fats and proteins into energy. This leads to the frustrating situation of difficulty losing weight despite regular exercise and a good diet.
Boosts The Immune System A lack of B12 interferes with your body’s ability to produce white blood cells. These cells are essential in fighting off infections and keeping your immune system in good working order. If you find yourself getting sick more often than usual or having allergies where you previously had none, you may need a B12 injection.
Helps Improve Sleep Patterns Tryptophan is the amino acid found in foods like turkey that makes you drowsy. Our body manufactures tryptophan naturally, and it’s a big part of what helps you fall asleep at night. Vitamin B12 is a major factor in the tryptophan production process. B12 injections can help you go from restless nights to getting a good night sleep.
Helps Stop Certain Types Of Hair Loss Hair loss is so common in men, that a B12 deficiency as the cause of it is often missed. Because cells are not being metabolized efficiently, it is difficult for hair growth to occur normally. Regular B12 injections restore your body’s ability to metabolize, and cause your hair to begin growing as usual. B12 injections are highly recommended for those who have a deficiency. The synthetic chemical, cyanocobalamin, is not easily absorbed by your body, but methylcobalamin is. Depending on your condition, you may need to get a B12 injection every few weeks until your deficiency is gone. If you have a medical condition where you are unable to absorb sufficient B12 from your diet, you will need to get a shot every month to stay healthy.
Vitamin B12 does a lot of things for your body. It helps make your DNA and your red blood cells, for example. Since your body doesn't make vitamin B12, you have to get it from animal-based foods or from sources. And you should do that on a regular basis, because your body doesn't store vitamin B12 for a long time.
With age, it can become harder to absorb this vitamin. It can also happen if you have had weight loss surgery or another operation that removed part of your stomach, or if you drink heavily.
