When summer ends, the whirlwind of fall takes over. School starts and weeks begin rushing by as we head toward the holiday season and end of the year. It is easy to feel fatigued when every day is jammed packed full of work, school activities and managing your household. If your energy levels are sagging, give your body and brain a boost with B12 injections.
How Does B12 Increase Energy?
B12 is not a stimulant like caffeine, but it is vital for sustained energy levels. One of the most noticeable side effects of low B12 levels is fatigue. All B vitamins are water soluble, which means they are not stored in the body and must be continually restored. When your B12 levels are low, you can feel tired and drained. Your body cannot produce B12 - it is available in food but only in animal products. For those who do not eat or restrict dairy, meat or other animal-derived foods, B12 can be on short supply in the body. Some people have difficulty absorbing B12 through the digestive system, which can also lead to lower levels. By supplementing this vitamin through injections, you can feel energized and reap other health rewards.
Health Benefits of B12 Injections
B12 injections have been used for decades to give an energy boost, but there are other health benefits to supplementing this key nutrient. B12 plays an important role in maintaining a healthy brain and body. Beyond helping metabolize food for energy, B12 also is vital for:
• Preventing anemia (low red blood counts)
• Preventing birth defects during pregnancy
• Improving bone density
• Maintaining serotonin levels for mood stabilization
• Brain function and memory
• Hair, nail and skin health
• Maintaining a healthy heart
B12 is considered a “super vitamin” due to its major role in so many different systems in the body. With a quick office visit to Arcadia Wellness Center for a B12 injection, you will restore your levels of this vital nutrient. Injections deliver this vitamin directly to your blood stream, bypassing the digestive system.
