Vitamin B-12 is an important nutrient that keeps the brain and nervous system functioning normally and is essential in the formation of red blood cells. It is essential in making DNA, the genetic material in all living cells, and is involved in cellular metabolism. B12 lowers homocysteine levels, a protein that has been associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and dementia. While B-12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, many medications, certain medical conditions, stress, poor eating habits, and the normal aging process can lead to a B-12 deficiency.
The injections should increase your energy level and improve your mood. Many of our patients feel that a weekly injection of Vitamin B-12 gives them the energy necessary to stick with their reduced calorie food plans and increased activity.
You do not need an appointment to receive an injection. If, on your initial doctor’s visit, the physician determines you can take B-12 injections, all you need to do is come by the office during regular business hours.
