Vitamin Shots for Fast, Natural Treatment in Crofton and Millersville, MD
Sometimes we don’t get enough of natural vitamins and minerals from our regular diets. To build up normal levels of these important vitamins, you probably know someone who takes supplements or a multivitamin pill. At Effective Integrative Healthcare, we help boost vitamin levels quickly with injections specifically tailored to compensate for a patient’s inability to absorb a certain type of vitamin and his or her unique dosage requirements based on age, gender, and body mass.
What Are the Benefits of Vitamin B-12?
Vitamin B-12 may seem like a tiny component of a regular diet that’s not important, but in reality, just a few micrograms are responsible for your overall health. Vitamin B-12 deficiency should not be taken lightly which is why it is so vital to monitor. B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin that promotes DNA synthesis, nerve cell health and proper neurological function, red blood cell formation, and healthy energy levels. According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, the average daily intake of vitamin B-12 is 2.4 micrograms (mcg) for men and women over the age of 14.
B-12 is present in many animal-based food sources, bound to the protein molecules. In order to separate the vitamin from the protein molecule to absorb it, there must be adequate stomach acid to release the bond during digestion. If not, you may not be able to absorb the vitamin, leading to pernicious anemia. Vegetarians can also experience low B-12 levels if they don’t eat enough protein containing the vitamin.
B-12 Shots from Effective Integrative Healthcare
Vitamin B-12 shots are administered by a trained professional in our office and contain a large amount of the man-made vitamin called cyanocobalamin. These injections take just a few minutes and counteract common B-12 deficiency symptoms such as fatigue, constipation, depression, headaches, mouth ulcers, balance and vision problems, and a struggle to focus and think clearly.
