We all have times when we feel tired and can’t focus on the work in front of us. Sometimes a good night's sleep can help, but too often it may be something more, like low levels of Vitamin B12. Having a B12 deficiency can make us feel tired or weak and can also cause problems with our concentration and memory.
There are a variety of foods that contain vitamin B12. These foods include dairy, fish, shellfish, meats, poultry, and eggs. Eating these foods may help improve your B12 levels, but it may not be enough. Some of us have a greater tendency toward having low levels of vitamin B12. Age is one factor for this deficiency. Once we are over 50, our bodies have a harder time absorbing this vitamin from food sources. Suffering from digestion disorders and certain medical conditions can also lessen our body’s ability to absorb this vitamin from food alone. It is also important for vegetarians and vegans to supplement their diets with Vitamin B12 shots due to not getting it naturally in their diets from meat products.
Vitamin B12 injections are an easy way to elevate the levels of B12 safely and quickly. Increased levels of the vitamin can help alleviate symptoms of deficiency and improve our health. Optimal B12 levels can help you to feel more energetic by helping to convert fat into energy. Another benefit of a vitamin B12 shot is an improvement in the health of your hair, skin, and nails. The best part is you only need the injection once a month!
