5 Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections

About 40% of all Americans have a vitamin B12 deficiency, which can cause symptoms that range from uncomfortable to serious. The good news is that a B12 deficiency can be corrected.

Our team at our MultiCare Medical in Papillion, Nebraska, offers B12 vitamin injections to supplement your body and give it the support it needs. But, what happens if you don’t get enough B12?

Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency

When you don’t get enough vitamin B12, you can experience:

You can also suffer from depression, mood swings, and overall behavioral changes.

Benefits of vitamin B12 shots

Your B12 deficiency can be remedied with B12 injections, offering many benefits that include:

1.   Increased energy

Do you feel lethargic on a regular basis? A B12 shot produces red blood cells, which provides oxygen for your body so your cells can produce energy.

2.   Improved metabolism

When you don’t have enough B12 in your body, you can develop anemia, which robs you from converting fat and protein into energy. A B12 shot can intervene with your anemia, help your metabolism function effectively, and ultimately lead to weight loss.

3.   Supported immune system

When you’re deficient in B12, your body can’t produce the white blood cells needed to fight off infections. The B12 shot keeps your immune system strong, allowing it to fight off sickness.

4.   Improved sleep

Vitamin B12 helps produce tryptophan, which is an amino acid that helps you sleep at night. B12 can help you go from sleepless nights to restful ones.

5.   Reversal of hair loss

Improper metabolization can cause hair loss. But, B12 shots can restore your ability to metabolize efficiently and allow your hair to grow naturally.

B12 shots also bypass your stomach, allowing quick absorption into your bloodstream. The shot works better than an oral supplement, especially if you have gastrointestinal problems or low levels of acid in your stomach.

How often do you need vitamin B12 injections?

Depending on your symptoms and condition, we may recommend that you have a B12 shot every few weeks until your body operates at its peak level. If your body can’t get enough B12 from your diet due to insufficient absorption, then we recommend that you visit our practice once a month for your B12 injection.
