Cos Cob, CT patients interested in finding ways to boost their energy levels may turn to caffeine in specialty drinks. However, sugar and caffeine can only do so much and provide short-term energy boosts with a recurring crash hours after. Instead, our bodies use nutrients such as B-12 to boost energy levels in a more natural manner, allowing us to harness long-term energy each day. Terry L. Conrad of NaturallYou provides a unique treatment known as B-12 injections to quickly metabolize this nutrient and allow for a natural boost in energy levels.
How do B-12 injections boost our energy levels?
Vitamin B-12 is actually an essential nutrient that our bodies need to function correctly. It helps with the formation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to our cells and tissues. B-12 is also involved in the synthesis of DNA and the proper functioning of our nervous system. Because it is water-soluble, our bodies cannot store B-12 for long periods of time, so we need a regular supply through our diet or supplements.
Some people may not be able to absorb B-12 from food as effectively as others due to gastrointestinal issues or certain medications. This is why our team will recommend B-12 injections.
Why are B-12 injections better than oral supplements?
Injections bypass the digestive system and allow the vitamin to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream for maximum benefit. B-12 injections are usually given intramuscularly, meaning they are injected into a muscle where they can be rapidly absorbed.
What are the benefits of B-12 injections?
Boosting your energy levels is just one of the many benefits of B-12 injections. B-12 can also help to:
- improve cognitive function
- slow the progression of dementia
- treat mood disorders such as depression
- help with weight loss
- support a healthy pregnancy
