VITAMIN B12 SHOTS BENEFITS AND B12 SHOTS SIDE EFFECTS
I have heard a lot of wrong information regarding b12 vitamin shots lately and everyone is talking about the benefits of B12 shots. These shots are the most accepted treatment among doctors for people showing symptoms of vitamin b12 deficiency. I would like to give you some new perspective over them, so you can make up your mind accordingly. A lot of people get stuck with these shots for the wrong reasons, for example – I’m sure you have heard something like ‘vitamin b12 for weight loss’ before. This vitamin formats red blood cells and grows tissues, creates Myelin around your nerve cells, reduces Homocysteine levels and replicates DNA, this effectively increases your metabolism.
While raising your metabolism does help with losing belly fat, the amount you would need to notice a change in your body would put you in a vitamin B12 overdose. Most people will not notice the effects of a B12 shot unless they have vitamin deficiency. However, the Mayo Clinic (which is a great site that is well respected for is medical advice) suggests there is no evidence to support B12 injections for weight loss. While their are benefits of B12, there is such thing as too much B12
While their are a few vitamin B12 injections benefits, serious side effects sometimes occur, and we at Cleanse Your Body suggest you avoid them if at all possible. These shots are usually given to people that have problems absorbing this vitamin, which is usually caused by a protein in the stomach called Intrinsic Factor. Make sure to look for things like parasites that might be eating your B12 stores. It is also possible that toxins like cyanide from cigarettes can destroy your bodies supple of b12. These are common reasons for a vitamin b12 deficiency.
Vitamin b12 injection dosage differs from patient to patient, depending on their age and mainly their level of deficiency, but it would be safe to say that it is something around 2-3 thousand micrograms a shot. These shots are also used to treat different conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
You should decide if vitamin b12 shots benefits outweigh their side effects: Skin redness, problems swallowing, difficulties breathing, mild diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, tingles, pain in the area of injection, and more.
Taking vitamin b12 injections for weight loss purposes is a bad idea. Why? because you can get the exact benefits from other less-radical sources, like food, or sub-lingual tablets. B12 simply boosts up your metabolism and increases your chance to do some exercise and lose some calories. That’s what it is all about. I don’t know why, but I believe you would rather eat B12 instead of injecting it with pain, and again the be B12 injections dosage would need to be extreme to induce weight loss. Really there are much better ways to lose weight, weight loss shouldn’t even be considered when talking about b12 shot benefits.
Considering all these, you should have a fairly strong idea of what’s going on in this ‘industry’. B12 vitamin deficiency symptoms are not to be overlooked, but can be easily treated unless it is really in it’s late phases. Only use these shots if you have no other choice, or in other words, only if you have problems absorbing this vitamin to your bloodstream. Be a smart ‘consumer’, as I always say. It’s your health and your body – Your most important assets.
If you are looking for ways to get more vitamin b12 naturally and with out the use of supplements, you can usually get your daily dose through the consumption of poultry and dairy products. However, for those of us doing a plant strong diet we are going to need to look for foods that are fortified with vitamins, as there are not plants that currently produce or store vitamin b12.
