Vitamin B12 is the largest of all the vitamins. For this reason, it is one of the most difficult of the vitamins for the body to absorb. If you do not have enough stomach acid or intrinsic factor protein, it becomes next to impossible to absorb vitamin B12 orally. To avoid this problem, vitamin B12 injection treatments were designed to put vitamin B12 directly into a patient’s bloodstream. This effectively bypasses the normal approach to getting the body to absorb vitamin B12, and at the same time, it ensures that a patient is getting far more of this life-promoting substance. The following are a few more benefits of vitamin B12 injections that you should be aware of.
Vitamin B12 has long been known for its energy-increasing benefits. Along with the supplementation of other B-vitamins, vitamin B12 injection treatments will help cell mitochondria to produce more ATP. ATP is the molecule that is used by the body for energy production. When your body is not producing enough ATP, it will inevitably feel fatigued and sluggish all the time. Producing ATP also gives way to another important benefit of vitamin B12 injections.
When it comes to losing weight, vitamin B12 injection treatments that produce ATP help the body to heat up and increase the body’s basal metabolic rate. This increase in the basal metabolic rate can mean the difference between only burning around 1,400-calories-per-day versus burning closer to 2,000-calories-per-day. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
A lot of people who are low or deficient in vitamin B12 often suffer with depression. For this reason, vitamin B12 injection treatments at our office can serve as a positive mood-enhancer for many of these individuals.
