B12 Shots are the easiest, safest, and most effective way to…
One of the most common symptoms of B12 deficiency is fatigue. If you recall from basic biology classes, mitochondria produce cellular energy in the form of ATP. It so happens that vitamin B12 is required in the production of ATP. In other words, if there is a lack of Vitamin B12, there is a lack of ATP resulting in fatigue. The reverse is also true; adequate B12 levels can reinvigorate and re-energize your daily routine.
Improve Sleep Quality
If you are having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, it may be due to problems with your circadian rhythm. This is the process that helps regulate your quality of sleep. Studies have shown that vitamin B12 can help resynchronize your circadian rhythm resulting in more restful sleep and less daytime drowsiness.
Increase Metabolism for Weight Loss
Vitamin B12 is involved in 100’s of biochemical reactions in the body that control fat and carbohydrate metabolism! Recent research has revealed an inverse association between Vitamin B12 status and obesity which means that the higher your weight, the more likely you are to be deficient in Vitamin B12. For these reasons, some refer to Vitamin B12 as ”The Energy & Weight Loss Vitamin”
Boost Immune System
Vitamin B12 also plays a role in white blood cell (WBC) production. White blood cells defend us against viruses and bacteria that come into contact with your body. Therefore, low levels of B12 have an impact on the body’s ability to fight off infection.
What is Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is an incredibly important, water-soluble nutrient, also known as COBALAMIN (the Cobalt Vitamin). In addition to improving sleep, energy, metabolism and mood, B12 is needed to form hemoglobin in red blood cells (RBC’s) which bind oxygen. Oxygenation, along with these other factors, has a strong influence on your energy level and ability to lose weight. This is why many report better success with weight loss after starting B12 treatments.
Do you think your body gets enough vitamin B12?
The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B12 is
6 micrograms per day. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. It is estimated, however, that 85% of us don’t receive the daily recommended requirement of B12 from our diet!
One reason for Vitamin B12 deficiency, is poor absorption during the digestive process. Basically, you can be consuming B12 in your diet and even supplementing with B12 tablets, but your body is not actually absorbing it. Moreover, the capacity to absorb vitamin B12 diminishes with age. Other people at risk of B12 deficiency include vegetarians and those with prior intestinal or weight loss surgery.
Where can I inject B12?
It is recommended that anyone who administers a B12 injection should receive training and guidance from a professional health expert. Solutions Weight Loss will train you to self-inject at home!
B12 can be injected intramuscular or subcutaneous. While less common, subcutaneous injections are much easier to do and equally effective. With Subcutaneous injections the needle is inserted just below the skin into abdominal fat. Because our B12 is more concentrated, you will only need to inject a small amount to get the full dose of 500 mcg.
B12 SHOTS vs. B12 PILLS
The best way to restore B12 levels is a vitamin B12 shot. By taking a shot, you are bypassing the GI tract and allowing for 100% absorption and bioavailability (available to be used by the body). There are several forms of B12. Solutions Weight Loss prefers to use Methylcobalamin, the most active and most stable form of B12.
How often can I do the B12 shot?
We recommend injecting Subcutaneously once weekly
**There are some exceptions that may require more or less frequent injections at the discretion of the physician.
Do I have to do injections to be in the program?
No. Everything is optional, so you decide! Lipo Burn Injections are highly recommended, but not mandatory. You can still lose weight if you decide to forego the injections. However, these are tiny shots that do not hurt. We can make you very comfortable doing the injection on the 1st visit, even if you are a needle-phobe.
