Who do you know that has been having difficulty with their energy, mood, or immunity? A B12 injection may help! Now is the time to try it out, applied in an Acupuncture point for double function!

 

 

Why is Vitamin B12 important?

  • Vitamin B12 is vital, because every cell in the body needs it to grow:
    1. for endurance and energy
    2. to recover well from illness
    3. for memory and mood
  • Since we do not produce B12 in our bodies, we need it from an outside source. And the best source for active B12 is from foods – eggs, meat, seafood, and mushrooms are some examples.

Flags for needing extra Vitamin B12:

  • Vegans or strict vegetarians
  • Having low stomach acid
  • Having Blood sugar issues and taking Metformin
  • Having digestive issues: bloating, heartburn, gas/belching on more days than not is a sign that digestion is having a hard time. (The takeaway is key nutrients may not be absorbed well. Especially if someone has a diagnosis of Crohns or Celiac disease.)
  • In this case correcting digestive issues will correct nutritional deficiency issues – Vitamin B12, iron, etc.

If you need extra B12 is it better to take it by mouth or by injection?

  • Either by mouth (under tongue or oral) or injection are both effective. However, a B-12 injection has its advantage because it bypasses a weak digestive system, and goes straight into blood, peaking within an hour.
  • If you are concerned if taking B12 orally is enough, have your doctor test your levels (MMA test) to see if injection would be better.
