Vitamin B12 Q & A

What is vitamin B12?

B12 is an essential vitamin that plays a vital role in brain function and in the production of DNA and red blood cells. Vitamin B12 also assists your metabolism by helping convert fat and protein into energy. It also aids in the breakdown of carbohydrates. All of this support can be an asset to a weight-loss program.

The vitamin is water-soluble. In food, it’s found only in animal products. Vegetarians and vegans can become deficient because they lack adequate B12 in their diets. Other people don’t produce enough of a specific protein called intrinsic factor that facilitates absorption of vitamin B12, and this can also cause you to be deficient in the nutrient.

What is supplemental B12?

B12 is offered in an injection at Elite Wellness Weight Loss. The injections can promote the health of your nerve and blood cells, resulting in a great boost of energy. The injections can also give your metabolism a kick, helping with a reduction in weight.

How can vitamin B12 help with weight loss?

By boosting your energy levels, the shots of vitamin B12 can help motivate you to exercise more, burn calories, and drop pounds. Plus, if you’re on a restrictive diet, it might be hard to get all the B12 you need from whole foods.

The injections give you the supplemental B12 you need to maintain optimal health as you move toward your weight-loss goals. Taking an excess of vitamin B12 won’t hurt your health either. Your body simply eliminates any excess in your urine, so there’s no risk of overdosing.

How long do the effects of B12 injections last?

The effects of B12 injections are temporary. Once your body processes the supplements, you return to a normalized state. Regular injections keep your metabolism and fat-burning mechanisms optimized.

The team at Elite Wellness Weight Loss devises a specific plan for you, but many patients benefit from weekly injections that continue throughout the duration of your weight-loss plan.
