One of the most common complaints from American adults is tiredness. There are many reasons that could lead to tiredness: lack of adequate sleep, diet, or an undiagnosed medical condition, among others. Often, long-term tiredness can add to other health concerns, making you feel stressed out and anxious, even if you aren’t necessarily an anxious person, since your body isn’t able to properly recharge itself. But what is there to do if you’ve tried all avenues, and yet you still feel tired, sluggish, anxious and stressed out? The culprit could be a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.
The quickest way to determine if you are experiencing a Vitamin B-12 deficiency is to schedule a consultation with the experts at The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center in Cincinnati. Dr. Shalini Gupta and her team will perform the necessary tests to determine if you’re experiencing the effects of a Vitamin B deficiency and recommend the appropriate course of treatment.
What is Vitamin B-12?
Vitamin B-12 helps to keep your nerve and blood cells happy and healthy. It also makes DNA, and factors in preventing a form of anemia. While many people get enough Vitamin B-12 from the food they eat, between 1.5% and 15% of the population suffer from deficiencies. Older people, vegetarians and vegans, and people with anemia or digestive disorders are most likely to suffer from Vitamin B-12 deficiencies. Vitamin B-12 is only found naturally in animal products, making it more difficult for vegetarians and vegans to consume it; and other conditions can prevent the body from absorbing it correctly.
Vitamin B-12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 injections are a safe way to remedy a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. In addition to reducing tiredness, stress, and fatigue, Vitamin B-12 injections also have a host of other great benefits. These benefits include:
- Aided digestion and supporting a healthy metabolism
- Improved strength and appearance of hair, skin, and nails
- Boost mood and can help to reduce depression
- Increased exercise performance
- And many more
Why choose injections instead of a different method?
Vitamin B-12 is included in virtually every multivitamin. However, only injections guarantee that the vitamin will be successfully absorbed into your body. If you suffer from Vitamin B-12 deficiency due to the fact that your body is unable to break it down correctly, you may not be able to absorb it from a pill either. With an injection, you’re guaranteed results.
