Did you know that Vitamin B12 is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies? It is particularly low in people who take stomach acid altering medications for heartburn and acid reflux and that is up to 20% of the U.S. population. Other people who are deficient in B12 are those who are on antibiotics, the elderly and vegetarian/vegans.
Common symptoms of low Vitamin B12 include fatigue, weakness, poor mood and low concentration. Very low B12 levels can be harmful and affect one’s neurological and cardiovascular health.
B12 injections have many benefits including:
- Increases your energy levels and fights fatigue
- Improves your metabolism
- Helps with weight loss
- Helps improve sleeping patterns and circadian rhythms
- Increases concentration and mood
- Boosts your immune system
- May increase hair growth and prevent hair loss
Is it dangerous to take too much Vitamin B12?
Because B12 is a Water Soluble Vitamin, it doesn’t get stored in the body and any excess that isn’t used gets flushed out of the body. In healthy individuals no adverse effects have been associated with excess Vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 levels can be tested with a blood serum test, however since B12 is stored in the liver the results may not be accurate.
Basically, if you are suffering from some of the symptoms of low B12, why don’t you try a Vitamin B12 series? There is little risk and no downtime and we can likely get you in same day!
