It’s no secret that your body feels better than ever when you’re giving it the right vitamins and nutrients. That being said, sometimes getting the right vitamins and minerals to keep your body functioning the way it should can be difficult. At Art of Balance Wellness Spa, we are proud to offer vitamin B12 shots to boost your body’s health and help you feeling better. Let’s go over some of the benefits you can expect with our vitamin B12 injections.
What is B12?
Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays a vital role in the production of our DNA and red blood cells. Although critical to our overall health, vitamin B12 is only found in animal protein and animal byproducts, making most of the vegetarian and vegan populations vitamin B12 deficient. Even people that don’t limit their intake of red meats can have trouble absorbing the appropriate amount of vitamin B12 to keep their body functioning properly. In addition to improving your DNA production and red blood cell count, vitamin B12 plays a critical role in our overall mental and physical health.
B12 improves your brain function.
Because B12 is vital to our red blood cell production, a lack of this vitamin can lead to lower brain function. Recent studies have even found a possible correlation to low blood levels and the onset of dementia. To keep your blood levels up, and keep your brain sharp as a tack, we recommend supplementing your intake of vitamin B12 with our B12 injections.
B12 can ease your depression.
Believe it or not, low levels of vitamin B12 have also been linked to depression. While vitamin B12 on its own isn’t a viable treatment for severe depression, elevated levels of B12 have been shown to prevent a relapse into a depressive episode.
B12 strengthens your bones.
Osteoporosis is often associated with a lack of calcium, causing the bones to become porous and brittle. What many people don’t know is that studies have proven an association between vitamin B12 deficiencies and lowered bone density. This can lead to having weaker, more brittle bones and osteoporosis in the long-term.
B12 can lower your risk of age-related vision loss.
Macular degeneration is a common condition in men and women ages 50 and older in which the eyes gradually begin to lose their vision. A large study over seven years showed a 35 percent lower risk of macular degeneration in women who had received vitamin B12 supplements.
