Do you often find yourself feeling fatigued – even after a full nights rest? You may not be getting enough B12!  Vitamin B12 is, despite its name, is one of eight B vitamins and is found naturally in meat, fish, and dairy products. The water-soluble vitamin plays key roles in the normal operation of our brain and nervous system as well as in the formation of blood.

A B12 Deficiency is surprisingly common in adults.  The main cause of a vitamin B12 deficiency is just poor absorption from the food you eat.  Vitamin B12 shots are the most common way to treat a B12 deficiency. Typically, a B12 injection is prescribed by a doctor and given on a monthly or bi-monthly schedule.

Vitamin B12 can benefit you by:

  • Reducing the effects of memory loss and slowing the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • Boosting your mood.
  • Invigorating energy levels.
  • Focusing concentration.
  • Slowing the aging process.
  • Improving your immune system.
  • Treating pernicious anemia, a blood disorder highlighted by a deficiency of vitamin B12.
  • Controlling levels of the amino acid Homocysteine which contributes to heart disease.
  • Increases the efficiency of fat and carbohydrate metabolism.
