Vitamin B12 is an extremely vital nutrient and oddly, difficult to detect when deficient. B12 deficiency is often seen in people who follow vegetarian or vegan diets, regularly use anti-acids or have overused antibiotics. And, even if meat and seafood are part of your diet, it’s important to know that most of the proteins you consume aren’t wild caught (fish) or grass-fed (meat and dairy) thus, the amount of B12 (and other nutrients) you are consuming can be much lower.
Some of the most common symptoms of low B12 levels are poor concentration, moodiness and general fatigue (see below for a full list of symptoms.) Unfortunately, the benefits of oral supplementation are often drastically reduced by poor absorption (either due to genetic predisposition, autoimmune disorders or leaky gut/poor gut). And aging itself means we absorb less Vitamin B12 from food. It is estimated 85% of us come up short of the necessary B12 from our diet.
In addition, absorption of B12 in food requires a substance from our stomachs called intrinsic factor, the production of which decreases with age. (The American College of Physicians assumes that no one has intrinsic factor past age 70). The decline in our intrinsic factor starts decades earlier. For all of these reasons contributing to unpredictable and low levels, we like to recommend the injectable form of B12.
Our prescription for most patients is weekly B12 shots for a two to three-month period and with monitoring symptoms to see the response. We then suggest injections once a month. Our formula includes the following components to cover the spectrum of B vitamins most beneficial in combating symptoms. We offer 2 variations on B-12: one directed to weight loss and the other to building muscle.
Look Forward to the following benefits:
° Improved energy and stamina
° Improved sleep quality and duration
° Higher metabolism
° Improved mental clarity
° Balanced immune system
