During the winter, it seems as though everyone could use a little immune boost when facing cold and flu season head-on. For most of us, our lives tend to be so chaotic that we could all benefit from several more hours per day just to take care of all the work and activities that are on our calendars. Having a vitamin deficiency can lead to lower energy and resistance to fight of any unwanted germs that enter our bodies, you may notice your energy level depleting after the simplest of tasks. Bloodwork is recommended to diagnose whether you are vitamin deficient and if supplementation is needed, you may want to consider the positive benefits of vitamin injections in Lake Stevens.
Vitamins play important roles in our body, from the production of DNA to keeping our blood, tissue, nerve and muscle cells alive and healthy, a little added energy boost is just a welcomed bonus for many. Most people take in enough vitamins into their system by the food and nutrients that we eat and drink on a daily basis. For some, a one a day vitamin may be just enough to balance vitamin levels in the body but, if the deficiency is severe enough, vitamin shots may be required.
Some indicators that you may have a vitamin deficiency are memory impairment, fatigue, mood changes, numbness or tingling in the fingers and toes, difficulty walking even the possibility of a painful tongue. If you happen to be experiencing any of these symptoms, it is always best to discuss them with your doctor as these can also be signs of many other diagnoses.
