Just about anyone who makes regular trips to the doctor or who is concerned about keeping themselves healthy has heard of the benefits of B12 vitamins or B12 injections. Often times, B12 injections are mixed with other things as well.
B12 injections have been shown to improve a person’s energy, make them feel better, work to improve fat loss and help with memory. B12 can be found naturally in a lot of the foods that people eat every day. These include things like fish, meat, milk and even some cereals that are fortified with vitamins.
Without B12, the nervous system and the brain would not function properly. B12 plays a vital role in the creation of blood cells. Every single cell in the human body relies on B12 to help them metabolize what they need, and B12 is also used by DNA as well as in human energy production. B12 is more important than most people understand.
When a person has B12 levels that are very low, they might feel tired, they might have memory problems, they might get stressed out and they may suffer from depression. In addition to having low energy, some individuals who were later diagnosed with a B12 deficiency comment on a sensation of numbness or tingling in their legs, feet or hands.
In extreme cases, people with B12 deficiencies have been shown to experience mania and even psychosis. Some researchers believe that if a person does not have enough B12 for an extended period of time, it can do permanent damage to the brain and to their nervous system.
There are two groups of people who usually have very low B12 in their body. They are individuals who are on diets that prevent them from eating dairy, seafood and meats. Then there are also individuals who have absorption issues that make it difficult for their body to absorb the B12 they need.
As a person ages, it can be harder for their body to absorb B12 vitamins. Additionally, some people do not produce the gastric acids and proteins needed to absorb the B12 vitamin. Some people take medication that makes it difficult for their body to absorb B12. There are certain medications designed to prevent seizures and convulsions and antibiotics that will decrease the levels of B12 in your body.
Individuals who have an absorption issue and are not getting enough B12 from their diet will feel better after B12 injections. If their B12 levels are truly low, then this treatment will increase their energy quickly and provide mental clarity.
When a person gets B12 injections, their energy level increases, they become more active and their mood improves. This also makes them more active, which often times makes them see weight loss as a result.
