At Healthy Habits Medical Weight Loss Centers, we offer unique combinations of vitamin injections to improve health and nutrition, boost overall energy, and burn body fat. Included in these injections is a very important vitamin—B12. What exactly is vitamin B12 and why do we need it?
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient we need to keep our nerve cells healthy and to keep our red blood cells at optimum efficiency. It is also extremely important for proper digestion and is also used to metabolize carbohydrates and fats. When administered as an injection, B12 is absorbed 100% into the system.
If you have a vitamin B12 deficiency you are likely to feel tired, lightheaded, and weak. You may also experience digestion problems such as diarrhea. You may feel tingling in your hands or feet, get out of breath easily, hear a ringing sound in your ears, have chest tightness. This deficiency can even cause neurological symptoms such as forgetfulness, inability to focus, and becoming easily confused.
Vitamin B12 is a known energy booster, and we recommend it to our weight loss patients whether or not they have a vitamin B12 deficiency. The reason for this is most people who are dieting; tend to complain about losing energy, perhaps because of their limited calorie intake.
Vitamin B12 injections have also been shown to reduce cravings. If you can eliminate or greatly reduce your desire for those foods that you know are not good for you, you are well on your way to overcoming your weight loss obstacles.
