The group of B vitamins help to maintain the health of nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, and mouth as well as regulate metabolism and energy levels in the body. Since Vitamin B12 is integral in the production of red blood cells, it can help to address anemia and help you feel recharged by increasing the amount of oxygen you carry in your blood. Of all the B vitamins, the most commonly found to be deficient is Vitamin B12, because it is found sparsely in our foods and difficult to absorb.
There are many other benefits of Vitamin B12 including: proper digestion and absorption, protein synthesis, metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, and it assists in cell formation and cell longevity. In addition, B12 prevents nerve damage, maintains fertility, and promotes normal growth by supporting nerve and brain tissue.
As mentioned previously, Vitamin B12 is not always actively absorbed by the digestive system. Often to attain therapeutic B12 levels, patients will undergo a short series of B12 injections to boost their bodily levels of this nutrient. Patients often report a mild energy boost and the regulation of their sleep patterns with regular B12 injections.
