Vitamin B Injections

A Vital Path to Wellness!

Humans do not make their own vitamin B12, so it is vital that we have adequate intake from food sources, supplements, or injections. Unfortunately, as we age, we produce less and less hydrochloric acid in our stomach, an essential chemical for the activation and absorption of vitamin B12. This makes it very challenging to acquire adequate vitamin B12 through diet and supplementation alone. Therapeutic injections of Vitamin B12 bypass the stomach and go directly into circulation, immediately being put to use within the body.

 

Assessing B12 status is especially important for people with immune function abnormalities, such as Grave’s disease, hypothyroidism, thyroiditis, vitiligo, and Addison’s disease. Additionally, people over 45 years old, African-American of Northern European descent, diabetics, or those who suffer from autoimmune conditions are especially likely to have lower levels of B12 and a more challenging time meeting their B12 needs.

 

How Does B12 Become Depleted?

  • Prolonged high stress
  • Low HCL in the stomach
  • Low enzyme function in the GI tract
  • Dysbiosis from an imbalance of healthy gut bacteria
  • Dietary deficiencies common in vegan or vegetarian diets
  • Medications such as proton pump inhibitors and other acid-reducing treatments.
  • Alcohol
  • Malignancies
  • Liver or kidney disease
  • Thyroid conditions

Symptoms of low B12:

  • Sleep problems
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Trouble focusing
  • Dieting difficulty
  • Anxiety
  • Sore tongue with red swollen appearance
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Nausea and poor appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Yellowish tinge to the skin and eyes

If low B12 persists for long periods of time it can a serious impact on health, including:

  • Numbness and tingling in hands and feet
  • Memory loss
  • Dementia
  • Irritability
  • Trouble walking
  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Muscle Weakness

B12 is important for:

  • Liver detoxification
  • Blood cell production
  • Cardiovascular protection
  • Neurotransmitter synthesis
  • DNA Function
  • Energy production and proper metabolic function
  • Metabolism of fats and carbohydrates, turning food into fuel
