Many people in this country have low B12 levels. B12 is critical vitamin for metabolism and energy. One study from the US Department of Agriculture found that over 40% of people are in the “low normal” or “deficient” range. The people with the low values described themselves as “busy people with fast-paced lives.” Doesn’t that describe most people in KL?
The low normal and deficient ranges for B12 levels are levels where people can experience symptoms of B12 deficiency. These can include low energy level, memory loss, tingling of the hands or feet, clouded thinking, and shortness of breath. B12 is in most meat products and fortified cereals. The problem is that many people have a hard time absorbing it. In addition, many people are on medications (zantac and prilosec) that cause vitamin absorption problems. B12 shots are also an excellent idea if you are just hungover from life due to stress, work, hectic schedules, or otherwise.
What does Vitamin B12 do?
- Helps the body process carbs (this is how it helps with weight loss)
- Helps the body make red blood cells (especially important for women)
- Is a critical part of making ATP, which is the basic unit of energy for the body (like gasoline for your car)
- Helps the body breakdown alcohol
B12 shots are an excellent way to get B12 rapidly into the system. We recommend B12 shots twice per month. These shots are administered as an IM (intramuscular) injection, usually in the arm or buttocks. It is relatively painless and has few side effects.
