Have you heard of vitamin B12? It's a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for your blood, nerves and even your DNA to function properly. B12 is found in a wide variety of animal foods but, even meat-eaters often have a deficiency. This could be for a variety of common reasons. We need to separate and then reattach B12 to different proteins in order to absorb it...many people have a problem with this step. Medications, digestive problems, age and stress level can also decrease our levels of B12. Supplements can be taken orally but, if the problem is absorption (which it often is), the deficiency persists. B12 injections to the rescue! Injected into the muscle, the vitamin can by-pass the digestive system and be absorbed. This is the best part, reaping the benefits of a B12 injection may include:
A better sense of well-being
Improvement in Hair, Skin and Nail health
A positive effect on heart health
Vitamin B12 has not been shown to cause harm. Maybe it's time you try a B12 shot!
