Vitamin B12 is known colloquially as the “energy vitamin.” Without it, your metabolism gets a little haywire. Vitamin B12 helps make DNA, nerve and blood cells and is crucial for the function of your brain and immune system.
In other words, you don’t want to be deficient of vitamin B12 you receive in your diet. We can address these deficiencies at Creative Image Laser Solutions with our vitamin B12 shots.
Where do we get vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is only found in animal products like eggs, meat, shellfish, and dairy. That’s spells trouble for vegetarians. Up to 15 percent of people don’t get enough B12, and they’re more likely to be vegetarian. Others with deficiencies can have celiac disease or other digestive problems, or be over the age of 50.
What does B12 do in the body?
Vitamin B12 is unique among vitamins because it contains cobalt, a metal ion that works together with pyridoxine and folic acid to turn carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from food into energy for your cells.
What are the signs I’m not getting enough B12?
Unlike other vitamin deficiencies, too little B12 will show itself in some pretty obvious ways. Signs of a vitamin B12 deficiency include exhaustion, rapid heartbeat, brain fog, loss of balance, anemia, depression, and even cancer.
What are the benefits of vitamin B12 shots?
At Creative Image Laser Solutions, we offer vitamin B12 injections to remedy deficiencies in our patients. The benefits of these shots are an increase in energy levels, weight loss due to increased metabolism, reduced stress, healthier skin, and other benefits in the cells.
Some people take B12 supplements as pills, nasal sprays, or in a patch. We find that our injections are more effective than these other delivery methods, as the vitamin is injected directly into the blood stream, where it can immediately begin working and where there isn’t any loss due to the digestive system.
