You find yourself dragging each morning when you get up, and it’s a challenge to get through the day. Your energy has gone down the drain, and you don’t know why. You drink plenty of water, you eat a healthy, balanced diet, and you lead an active lifestyle. Sleep is a priority, and you make sure to get a good night’s rest on a regular basis.
In spite of all of your efforts, you still feel like a clock that is winding down. There could be an underlying cause for your problem, and it could all come down to a vitamin B12 deficiency. The B12 shot could give you the boost you need to get some pep back into your step.
B12 is a natural vitamin found in a variety of sources. You can find it in the meat section of your grocery store, the seafood aisle and the dairy section.
You may think that you are eating plenty of foods that contain B12 and take vitamins that include this important nutrient, but still have low energy levels. Your body may simply need more than you are getting or you may have difficulty absorbing B12 in your system.
B12 is important for your nervous system and your brain. It also plays a role in ensuring that your blood cells are healthy. If you don’t have enough B12 in your system, it can throw you for a loop.
If you are dealing with a vitamin B12 deficiency, the most noticeable symptom is fatigue that won’t go away no matter how much rest you get. You may feel weak and have problems with your balance. Your appetite may disappear, resulting in weight loss.
If we determine that you have a B12 deficiency, you can get a major boost to your B12 levels with a shot that contains 500 times the amount that is typically in your daily intake. It will go straight to your bloodstream and give you that pick-me-up that you have wanted. You should see your energy levels go up, as well as your ability to focus. Your appetite should return, and you can expect your mood to improve as well.
If you feel a lack of energy during the day or feel like something may be out of balance with your body, set up an appointment at Skin Boutique in Birmingham. We will discuss your medical history and perform an evaluation to determine if your B12 levels are at the root of your problem.
