More than one-third of adults in the U.S. population does not get enough B-12 in their diet, and deficiency rises with age.
Preservative-free Methyl B-12 (Methylcobalamin) Injections
B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is found naturally in some foods, added to others, and is available as a dietary supplement as well as a prescription medication. It exists in several forms, such as methylcobalamin, which supports methylation in the body and is the most commonly used form of B-12. Injection therapy for B-12 is superior to dietary supplements due to the fact that only about 50% of the B-12 dose is absorbed when ingested orally, whereas injection directly into the body tissues and bloodstream allow for complete access.
Common symptoms of a B-12 deficiency include impaired mental functionality, poor memory, “brain fog,” confusion, anxiety, emotional issues such as depression or irritability, low energy leading to fatigue (especially in the afternoon), shortness of breath, lightheadedness, dizziness, anemia, and muscular weakness.
When treated with B-12, we address the above symptoms, as well as support the metabolism and digestion, the formation of DNA and blood vessels, hormone synthesis, and overall energy and vitality. B-12 injection therapy is a quick, safe and effective way to combat the symptoms of deficiency, available here at Progressive Health Center.
