Why are B12 Shots or B12 Injections so important for Weight Loss?
Vitamin B12 serves a multitude of purposes in the body including, but not limited to the following. None of these are directly tied to weight gain, but they all cause problems that lead to obesity and weight gain.
✓ Brain Health: B12 supports myelin, which is what allows nerve impulses to properly conduct through our brain. As B12 levels decline, brain health declines, and common symptoms include memory deficits, lack of focus, anxiety, depression, and even dementia. Many of our patients admit that they are emotional eaters, and are more likely to go off of their diets when they are anxious or depressed. Therefore when B12 stabilizes their moods, they become less emotional and eat less.
✓ Blood Cell Formation: Without B12, we cannot adequately produce proper amounts of red blood cells, thus leading to anemia, and subsequent fatigue. Many of our patients tell us that they are more likely to eat more sugars and bad carbs when they are tired. Therefore, raising the energy naturally helps such patients lower carb cravings.
✓Peripheral Nervous System: Neuropathy due to B12 deficiency can manifest in a number of ways from loss of sensation to gait abnormalities and a myriad of other problems.
✓Energy: Without proper B12, the most likely symptom is a decline in energy, producing fatigue that is easily and quickly reversible by administering B12 in the right form at the right dose.
What are the different types of B12 Shots or Injections Available?
Cyanocobalamin: This is the most common form of B12 that is used by most doctors and clinics. Unfortunately, it is also the least effective as it is B12 in an inactive form that has to be converted into the active form. It also releases a small amount of Cyanide into the blood stream, which you then have to use valuable resources, call Glutathione, to detoxify.
Hydroxycobalamin: This is a much better form of B12 that is commonly used for injections. It does not have cyanide and is much more easily activated than is the Cyanocobalamin form.
Methylcobalamin: This is the most active form of B12, however due to FDA changes on compounding pharmacies, it is also the most difficult to acquire and most expensive form of B12. However, at san franskinny, we do have it and it is available for injection.
