Even though I HATE SHOTS (did I mention I hate shots?), I get a weekly B12 shot, and here is why:
There is a lot of information out there like..
♡ This site states “B12 is a great energy boosters. It works through the red blood cells, by enabling them to carry oxygen more efficiently. An oxygenated cell is a cell that is at its optimum, full of energy and won’t tire easily. B12 is also great for the skin. These are just some of the benefits— overall, it’s an essential vitamin that the body must have to stay in balance. The only problem is that it is not that easily found in food— very few foods are B12 rich and these are essentially meat and eggs. This leaves especially vegans to look for sources elsewhere, in fortified foods, supplements or vitamin B12 shots. Shots are a preferred option because of their direct and immediate absorption into the bloodstream.”
♡ According to another source, “B12 increases metabolism, the side effect of which can be weight loss. With regular B12 injections and a combination of other weight loss regimens, people have reported to lose weight much faster and they attribute it to the shot.”
♡ Also it boosts energy— & delivers an energy booster straight to the bloodstream.
♡ YOU RETAIN ALMOST ALLLLL THE B12!! This source states “none of it gets lost in the digestive process. For comparisons sake, a B12 tablet leaves you with only 1.2% of B12 in the tablet. A shot will lose very little, if any.”
♡ They’re mood boasters. Seriously though. I feel so much better after my weekly B12. Basically Vitamin B12 is really important for a properly functioning central nervous system. If you’re nervous system isn’t functioning properly it can lead to depression.
♡ You need B12 to maintain a properly functioning cardiovascular system. It things the blood & prevents blood stickiness.
The recommended dosage is every other day or every other week or whatever floats your bloat!
You can get your B-12 at New Leaf Wellness. Also, wanted to note: I always prefer to get the methylcobalamin ( it absorbs better & is used better in your brain, liver, & nervous system ) B12, not the cyanocobalamin (does not occur in plants or animal tissue ).
Basically I’ve been getting them for years & they rock. I would consult with your doctor first to see if you’re a candidate (a lot of men and women are low on B vitamins ). Ultimately, I do what works for me, you should do what works for you.
Ok, so do you get B12 shots? SPILL!
