Vitamin B12 is essential in the building of red blood cells, maintaining healthy nerve cells, and the formation of DNA in the body.
This vitamin is a critical component to overall body function, and therefore a deficiency can lead to several health complications. As B12 is consumed via diet, and many individuals do not consume enough foods with adequate B12 vitamin levels. Any time someone has gut issues or irritation, the possibility exists that they will not produce enough intrinsic factor to absorb their b12 as well. Some of our elderly are even incorrectly diagnosed with dementia when in reality they have pernicious anemia due to b12 deficiency. Therefore, B12 injected intravenous or intramuscular, has become a good alternative when dietary sources fail to be ingested or absorbed. The proper vitamin B12 levels in the body give you more energy, improved concentration and mood, better sleep patterns, and increased metabolism. The appropriate form of b12 also matters as there are many.
B12 shots reduce some of the risks associated with B12 deficiencies, such as:
- Heart disease
- Neurocognitive disorders
- Coordination problems (ataxia)
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Vision loss
- Neural tube defects in the babies of women with B-12 deficiency
