The Benefits of Vitamin B12 Shots

Vitamin B12 deficiency affects between 1.5% and 15% of the public according to the National Institutes of Health. Vitamin B12 is found in animal protein including dairy, eggs, meat, fish, and shellfish. It is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent anemia, a condition that often makes people feel tired and weak.

Several groups are at risk of vitamin B deficiency:

Adults over 50: As you age, hydrochloric acid decreases in the stomach and hinders your ability to absorb vitamin B12 that is naturally present in food. 

Pernicious anemia: People with this condition are unable to absorb vitamin B12. Doctors usually treat pernicious anemia with vitamin B12 shots.

Crohn’s or Celiac disease: These conditions can decrease the amount of vitamin B12 that the body can absorb.

Vegetarians and Vegans: Only foods derived from animals have vitamin B12 naturally so people who eat little or no animal products can experience vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vitamin B12 Treatment

Intramuscular Vitamin B12 shots are a very effective way of reversing or preventing a deficiency because they allow for 100% absorption directly into your tissue. If you are unable to absorb enough B12 due to dietary restrictions or health problems, a B12 shot can have immediate health benefits. 

Increase Energy and Focus

Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient that is required for proper red blood cell formation. Red blood cells transport oxygen in the body and provide the fuel your cells need to produce energy. Low production of red blood cells can leave you feeling lethargic. A vitamin B12 shot will increase red blood cell formation so you immediately have more energy. 

Boost The Immune System

Vitamin B12 also aids in the production of white blood cells, which play a critical role in fighting off infections and keeping your immune system healthy. A vitamin B12 shot can elevate your immune system so you can fight infection.

Improve Your Mood

According to Harvard Health, vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to deep depression, paranoia and delusions. Studies suggest a link between vitamin B12 and brain chemicals like serotonin which help regulate mood. A vitamin B12 shot can correct or prevent a deficiency and improve your mood. 

Increase Metabolism

Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause anemia which will prevent your body from converting the proteins and fats in your diet into energy. Vitamin B12 will give your metabolism a boost by increasing the availability of oxygen-rich red blood cells in your body.

    This is such a well researched and well written article. B5 is great for the skin. I also love B6 and B12 for boosting energy, promoting a healthy luteal phase, and stopping PMS. Anastasie Delmar Kenison

    We often went to North Wales, Conwy to be precise. My grandparents had a thing about the place, mainly because it was west coast and they claimed you could see Ireland on a clear day. It was passed down the generations. I loved it there. Beryle Allen Handy
