6 Health Benefits of B-12 Injections

Vitamin B-12 is a vitamin that is essential for numerous biochemical processes in our bodies. We can get B-12 from food sources such as meat products, fish, eggs and milk. Therefore, vegetarians and vegans may not be getting enough B-12 in their diets. These people might want to talk to their doctor about supplementation or injections. Furthermore, individuals taking certain medications like stomach acid reducers may not be getting enough B-12.

Injections of B-12 can be more effective than supplementation for those that are depleted of B-12 and for those on acid reducing medications. Also, some patients prefer a monthly shot rather that taking a B-12 tablet everyday. Listed here are benefits from B-12 injections:

1. Can improve energy

- One symptom of B-12 deficiency is fatigue.

2. Can prevent anemia

- B-12 is essential for making new red blood cells. This is likely the reason B-12 deficiency causes fatigue.

3. Can improve mood

- B-12 is essential for producing and processing serotonin.

4. Supports memory and cognition

- Research has shown that lower levels of B-12 can be associated with memory loss.

5. Supports heart health

- B-12 helps to decrease homocystine. Homocystine is an amino acid that is associated with heart disease.

6. Supports hair, skin and nails

-B-12 deficiency can be linked to a number of skin conditions, nail discoloration and hair loss.
