B12 vitamins have a variety of benefits from improved sleep to weight loss.
What is the B12 Boost?
B12 is found in eggs, meat and dairy. Deficiencies in B12 can lead to a host of problems, such as light-headedness, exhaustion, memory issues, and constipation. While everyone needs B12, some populations are at greater risk for deficiency. These include the following:
- Older adults - As the body ages, it gets harder to extract nutrients from our food. Digestion just isn’t what it used to be. B12 can help mitigate this trend.
- Vegetarians and vegans - These individuals are not able to get B12 from their food, so an injection is an ideal way to make sure the proper nutrients get absorbed.
- Those suffering from chronic disease - Persons with Crohn’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, diabetes, osteoporosis or muscular degeneration all tend to find improvement in their symptoms once they introduce B12 shots.
