IV B12 is good for helping your body burn fat, turn carbohydrates into energy and manufacture new protein. It keeps your body in constant balance for these essential building blocks, which aid you in maintaining optimal function.
When you practice proper nutrition, you can get the B12 you need in your diet. It comes from animal products such as fish, poultry, red meat, milk and eggs. Those who eat a plant-based diet are at risk of their B12 levels falling below healthy recommendations. You can’t get naturally occurring B12 from plant-based foods. You must either take a supplement or eat fortified foods.
People suffering from vitamin B12 deficiencies will notice their energy levels dip below normal levels. They may also develop a yellow cast to their skin, feel irritable, grow mouth sores or experience vision disturbances. Stomach problems frequently pop up among those with vitamin B12 deficiencies, too.
Getting the right amount of this essential vitamin can protect you from painful side effects and decrease your anxiety while supporting proper neurological function.
What Is Vitamin B12?
B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that must be replenished frequently in the body. The manufactured, human-made version of B12 is referred to as cyanocobalamin.
The body best absorbs vitamin B12 through an IV drip. While taking oral supplements can eventually raise your B12 levels, it takes longer and parts of the supplement often go to waste, being excreted before your body can use them all. It can also take time to determine the right amount of supplement to take, which you can find only through trial and error.
Benefits of B12
Taking intravenous B12 can provide many advantages to someone with a vitamin deficiency, or a person looking for more energy or an immune system boost. It is the most effective way to add B12 to your body, because you can take in 100% of what’s administered via IV. You excrete the excess through your urine.
Vitamin B12 can assist with overall energy levels and decrease irritability. You can also use it to treat a range of conditions, including:
- Improving and regulating the production of blood cells and nerves
- Immune system issues
- Lack of energy
- Mood disorders
It can take a year or more to develop vitamin B12 deficiencies, so becoming proactive with supplementation can help you avoid the most severe symptoms of the condition.
If you eat a vegan or plant-based diet, you are at risk of having low B12 levels. Getting intravenous B12 addresses the problem more efficiently than oral supplements and can raise your energy levels and fight side effects such as fatigue and constipation. In some cases, you can even develop dementia from a B12 deficiency.
