People suffering from lethargy, depression, memory loss, or headaches could be B12 deficient and should consider B12 injections. Vitamin B12 is found in many foods, such as yogurt, salmon, sardines, clams, oysters, beef, eggs, and dairy. When a person ingests B12 through foods, some of the vitamins are lost in the digestive process, and not all of it is absorbed into the body. B12 injections have no side effects, and all the B12 is absorbed into the body. Here are several of the many benefits B12 injections can provide:
B12 helps the circulatory and nervous systems operate correctly. It helps create healthy red blood cells, and prevents blood stickiness, preventing the formation of blood clots. A healthy, efficient circulatory system helps nutrients become energy more effectively.
B12 plays a key role in the working of mitochondria in the body. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells and determine the energy-efficiency of cells. Healthy mitochondria mean healthy cells, which means more nutrients – and more energy.
The mitochondria of a cell also determine its basal metabolic rate, or metabolism. Metabolism is the rate in which bodies burn calories. B12-proficient mitochondria can also help repair damage done to metabolism from extreme dieting.
Lack of good sleep raises blood sugar levels and contributes to weight gain. B12 stabilizes the body’s circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is what regulates the quality and depth of sleep. Unhealthy sleeping patterns, such as difficulties with falling or staying asleep, can contribute to a host of health issues.
Enhanced Concentration and Mood
People struggling with depression often have a B12 deficiency. B12 improves moods and helps fight depression and other mood-related disorders. B12 also helps enhance concentration and memory loss, especially in people struggling with dementia.
Assistance with Weight Loss
The combination of a better metabolism, more energy, an improved mood, and plenty of sleep all contribute to healthy weight loss. B12 doesn’t make someone lose weight, but it can help the body burn calories more efficiently. With a healthy diet, exercise, and B12 injections, a person can easily see their weight reaching a healthier level.
Boosted Immune System
B12 helps the circulatory system, which is closely related to the immune system, because white blood cells are part of both systems. B12 reduces the chance of illness by boosting the circulatory and immune systems. The body can fight off bacteria and viruses with greater success.
Increased Hair Growth
B12 is one of the vitamins that promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails. Those with B12 deficiency have cracked or weak nails, irritated skin, and unhealthy hair.
Think you may be deficient in B12? Don’t be afraid to seek help.
