What’s The Buzz Around B12 Injections
B12 comes in different compounds, Hydroxocobalamin is the compound recommended by the World Health Organisation, it’s recommended over other compounds that are used as it stays in the body longer!
Vitamin B12 deficiency is believed to be one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world. For this reason, B12 injections are used to offset the many symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency, such as fatigue and weakness, poor moods, and low concentration.
While foods like grass-fed beef, dairy products and fish supply a good dose of vitamin B12, some people abstain from eating these foods or have a harder time absorbing and utilizing this nutrient due to digestive/metabolic limitations. Sometimes certain genetic conditions can hinder the body’s use of vitamin B12, and other times low dietary intake plus unhealthy lifestyle habits are to blame. Plus, because B12 vitamin is bound to amino acids (found in protein foods) and is only released when certain enzymes and stomach acids are present, it’s possible to consume enough but still remain somewhat deficient.
B12 shots are thought to:
Increase energy levels
Improve Menopausal Symptoms
Improved sleep patterns
Better skin, hair and nails
