Nov 11, 2019 | Skin Care



For many the holidays and the associated retail frenzy trigger happier times and warm memories with family and friends. But some people really struggle with winter blues, fatigue, and stress, which can make one miss out on all the fun. In most cases, a Vitamin B12 deficiency can be the culprit behind it all. A B12 shot can give you improved vigor and more positive energy for your day-to-day tasks and holiday activities.

What’s is Vitamin B12?

Also known as cobalamin, Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that’s crucial for many hormonal and metabolic functions. It plays a key role in red blood cell production and brain function. And because of how it helps synthesize and convert compounds in the body, B12 is needed for many daily functions.

Adults should take at least 6 micrograms of vitamin B12 daily. Deficiency is common, especially among those who follow a plant-based diet. This is because vitamin B12 is only naturally occurring in animal foods. However, even some meat-eaters can have a deficiency if they don’t absorb it well. Deficiency is also common in the elderly, those who have had intestinal surgery, or those with celiac disease or Chron’s disease. An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can result in pernicious anemia and a host of other neurological problems.

Benefits of B12 Shots

A B12 shot is a highly concentrated dose of vitamin B12 and is the most effective way to raise blood levels of this vitamin and reverse/prevent deficiency. B12 shots can boost your mood and increase your energy by supporting normal, healthy metabolic functions. It can also improve concentration, prevent memory loss, and help to lift depression. Other roles attributed to vitamin B12 include:

  • DNA/RNA synthesis
  • Increased production of red blood cells
  • Enhanced conversion of protein and fats
  • Increased production of hormones
  • Myelin sheath production
  • Synthesis of hemoglobin

With the holiday season being jam-packed with shopping, parties, cooking, hosting, and many other obligations, a B12 shot is ideal for a quick feel-good boost. The shot will help you kick fatigue and supercharge your energy levels so you can enjoy what the season has to offer to the fullest.

While you can easily grab oral energy boosts when you’re at the pharmacy or grocery store, your body will not fully absorb supplements in liquid or pill. But when administered through injections, your body can absorb the maximum amount required for normal function and full energy boost.
