8 Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Vitamin B-12 deficiency is shockingly common and studies show that as many as 2 out of 4 people are B-12 deficient. The elderly population and people who don’t consume foods high in B-12 (such as meat, dairy and eggs) are especially at risk. However, even meat eaters can be deficient in B-12 due to poor digestion, and some prescription medications can interfere with B-12 absorption.
Do you have any of the symptoms below?
- Shortness of breath or chest pain
- Dizziness, fainting or trouble with balance
- Confusion, memory loss or dementia
- Pale or yellow tint to the skin
- Coldness, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Slow reflexes or nervous system function
- Soreness in the mouth and tongue
- Fatigue or unexplained weakness
If you or someone you know has any of the above symptoms, please give us a call to discuss whether or not you might be deficient in this crucial vitamin. In addition to poor health, vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause brain shrinkage and some research is suggesting a link to Alzheimer’s.
The best form to supplement B-12 (besides diet) is methylcobalamin as opposed to the synthetic form, cyanocobalamin. We urge staying away from the low-end vitamin cyanocobalamin because it is bound to a toxic cyanide molecule that must be filtered through the liver.
Methylcobalamin exists in nature, and it is pre-methylated, meaning it’s ready for your biochemistry to put to immediate use. In this form, you will get increased absorption, better retention in the tissues, and it contains no toxic cyanide.
We offer affordable methylcobalamin B-12 via injections at our office, which are extremely effective because this method bypasses the digestive tract and immediately enters the bloodstream.
A B-12 injection is $10, a B-12 with MIC (fat burner) is $20 and a B-12 with B-complex and Glutathione is $25. Glutathione is a master antioxidant and extremely important for the immune system, healing and anti-aging. You can come in once a week (most common), every other week, or even once a month to the receive the amazing benefits. For those who are comfortable self-injecting can purchase a month supply to take home and we'll provide instructions for treatment.
