What is Vitamin B12 Injections?
Vitamin B12 is involved in energy production in your body and can improve your energy levels and decrease fatigue. It is also the essential vitamin which is needed for the production of mood-regulating chemicals in the brain. So, having the right balance can improve your mood, sleep, emotions and even help prevent depression.
Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble based vitamin that is stored in the liver. A member of a larger group of B vitamins, it is the only vitamin that contains a metallic element called cobalt and for this reason, it is sometimes referred to as Cobalamin. As with the other B Vitamins, it acts within the body as a coenzyme.
Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency
The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms per day. Deficiency is common, especially in people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. In fact, it’s thought that up to 90% of people following these diets have a deficiency. This is because B12 is only found naturally in animal foods. Unlike other vitamins, the absorption of vitamin B12 depends on a protein produced in your stomach, called intrinsic factor.
Anyone who has signs and symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency or pernicious anemia should consult a doctor.
Signs and symptoms include:
- difficulty thinking and remembering
- heart palpitations
- pale skin
- weight loss
- numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
- mood changes
- a sore tongue
- low appetite
