Vitamin B12 Q & A

Why should I consider vitamin B12 injections?

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that supports good health. Since your body doesn’t naturally produce B12, you have to get sufficient amounts of it through your diet by eating eggs, milk, and meat. 

However, many people don’t consume enough vitamin B12, especially if their diet is made up of fruits, vegetables, and salads. Injections of vitamin B12 ensure your body has what it needs to stay healthy. Since the vitamins go directly into your bloodstream, you don’t have to worry about losing vital amounts of the vitamin during the digestion process.

Praxis Wellness Center makes it easy for you to receive in-office injections once a week with no wait times and medically supervised treatments. You can be in and out of the office in as little as six minutes.

The medical team is highly skilled in administering injections safely at just the right dosage to support your health needs.

Why is vitamin B12 important?

Vitamin B12 is vital for healthy digestion. B12 binds to the proteins in your digestive tract to increase your ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients from the foods you eat. 

This vitamin is also important for your metabolism, increasing your energy levels and helping you burn fat more efficiently. You can also combine vitamin B12 injections with Lipo-EXTREME injections to boost your body’s ability to burn fat as part of your weight loss program at Praxis Wellness Center. 

Your body also needs sufficient vitamin B12 to form healthy nerves, support brain function, and produce red blood cells — the cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout your body. 

What are the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency?

If you’re not getting enough vitamin B12 in your diet, you can end up with a vitamin deficiency. Some common signs that you need more vitamin B12 include:

  • Pale skin
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Persistent fatigue

You may also experience frequent changes in your mood and struggle with issues like depression. 

If you are elderly, following a vegan diet, or taking certain medications for underlying medical conditions, you may be at increased risk for developing a vitamin B12 deficiency.
