The Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is known to energize and enhance mental and physical performance. However, the energy boost that people get from B12 is what we like to call “Energy Enhancer”. Unlike caffeine or other stimulants, B12 doesn’t give you a wired or buzzy feeling. It provides a balanced level of energy that feels natural and manageable.
Clients that suffer from brain fog and lack of focus may also notice a brain boost from vitamin B12. When combined with other B vitamins and certain amino acids, the energizing effects are beautifully enhanced. Specifically, our injection (B12 + Taurine + B5) is an example of this combined mental and physical boost. Our nutrients, plus the added benefits of Carnitine, Glutathione, and B-complex takes it to another level with those three.
Metabolism and Weight Loss
While vitamin B12 itself won’t shed the pounds for you, it does help the way our bodies absorb and utilize nutrients. Instead of turning these nutrients into fat, B12 helps turn them into energy. Studies have shown that nutrients with B vitamins can effectively reduce weight gain and plasma levels of lipids.
Vitamin B12 also functions as a cofactor for methionine synthesis. Methionine supports weight loss (and overall health) by helping to remove heavy metals within the body while breaking down fat deposits. This helps to prevent a toxic build-up of fat in the arteries. Methionine is also converted to cytosine, a precursor of Glutathione, an essential antioxidant that aids in the liver’s detoxification.
If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, our “Weight Loss” with extra strength B12 gets the job done. We recommend doing it weekly for at least 8 weeks.
Reducing Stress, Inflammation, and Pain
For clients with anxiety, insomnia, migraines, chronic pain, and inflammation, vitamin B12–along with certain other nutrients – helps to calm and restore balance to the nervous system. In fact, it’s well-established that B12 plays a role in synthesizing serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters. People who are deficient in B12 may suffer from irritability, agitation, mood swings, migraines, insomnia, and even gastrointestinal distress.
For example, our NAD Drip and IV formulas of Vitamins utilize the calming benefits of extra strength vitamin B12, along with Magnesium, various amino acids, and other water-soluble vitamins.
Enhancing Immune Function
The body’s ability to create new immune cells and initiate an immune response requires B vitamins, especially vitamin B12. Specifically, in clinical studies of immunological or neurological disorders, such as autoimmune diseases and HIV infections, some unproductive effects of vitamin B12 have been reported. Vitamin B12 not only supports the immune system directly, but its ability to help aid sleep, improve digestion, and suppress excessive inflammation allows the body to better fight off infections.
The past year the focus of medical science was to improve our immune system to fight against covid-19. In fact, our immune boost IV drip with the extra strength of B12 is still the most requested service of all time.
Vitamin B12 in Pregnancy and Nursing
Vitamin B12 is not only safe to give during pregnancy, it can actually help prevent birth defects, including some that can be fatal. It’s also extremely helpful for pregnant and nursing mothers who suffer from nausea and fatigue
