If you’ve been having some unexplained fatigue and weakness, a deficiency of vitamin B12 may be the cause. B12 is vital to many of your body’s systems, but your body can’t produce it by itself. Vitamin B12 injections can give you a needed boost and help your body function optimally.
B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that supports many functions:
Red Blood Cells. B12 helps your body develop healthy red blood cells. When you’re B12 deficient, cells become malformed, which can negatively affect the way they deliver oxygen to your body. This can lead to fatigue because your cells in your vital organs aren’t getting the oxygen they need.
Bones. Some studies have shown that B12 may also affect your bone mineral density. Low mineral density is associated with osteoporosis, which leaves bones brittle and prone to breakage as we age.
Mood/Depression. Although this is still being studied by researchers, there are indications that B12 plays a role in your mood, and that a deficiency can cause depression. B12 treatment is associated with better outcomes for people with depression.
Brain Function/Memory. Some studies have linked B12 deficiency with poor memory or memory loss.
Energy Levels. Many people who are B12 deficient experience a lack of energy that leaves them feeling listless and fatigued. A boost of B12 can increase your overall energy level.
Studies have shown that about 40% of Americans are B12 deficient. While it’s well known that vegans need B12 supplementation (it’s only available in animal sources in our diet), new research has shown some genetic links to B12 deficiency. This means that everyone should understand their need for this important nutrient.
B12 injections can give you a boost of energy, improve your mood, help you sleep better, enhance your cardiovascular function, promote weight loss, and give you an overall sense of improved well-being.
