What Are B12 Injections and How Do I Benefit?

B12 is an amazing vitamin, and researchers are still finding more benefits of taking it regularly. B12 has been shown to relieve asthma in children, improve mental functions, help melatonin production- resulting in a better night’s sleep, and has even been shown to block replication of HIV. This wonderful vitamin is plays a vital role in assisting folate in making both DNA and RNA, which are responsible for carrying the genetic code for cells and telling them how to function. The most common reasons that people take B12 injections are for the feeling of alertness, increase in energy, and an improved night’s sleep.

An injection of B12 has about 500 times the recommended daily dose; but unlike most vitamins you don’t need to worry about taking too much. It will stay in your system longer than most vitamins; some can even be stored in your liver and fatty tissue. Taking B12 by injection rather than pill form allows the body to absorb it faster and much more efficiently so it can immediately start help with the formation of red blood cells and promote a healthy cardiovascular and nervous system. B12 has also been linked to the prevention of arthritis, shingles, senile dementia, depression, nerve damage, infertility, and multiple sclerosis.

B12 can be found naturally in fish, poultry, beef, eggs, and dairy products, but it can be very difficult to absorb. People with digestive problems may find that they have an even harder time holding on to and effectively using the vitamin. People that may have stomach ulcers, low hydrochloric acid in the stomach, or take medication designed to lower or prevent stomach acid may suffer from a B12 deficiency and have a particularly difficult time absorbing it. Taking the vitamin in injection for is an effective way to combat the absorption troubles these people may face.

Although B12 deficiency is a very common problem, people in good health, such as athletes, will find an immediate benefit as well. This incredible vitamin promotes a feeling of alertness, increased memory, and a generally improved mood. What is most important to many people is the improved sleep that occurs due to the influence on melatonin secretion that B12 has. And a good night’s sleep can make all the difference in the world.
