It seems that everyone is looking for a little extra energy these days. Our lives are so frenetic that many of us could use an additional 12 hours daily to complete all of the work and play activities on our calendars. Having a B12 deficiency can certainly exacerbate the energy situation. Energy levels may drop even after a seemingly mundane and simple task. If a blood test shows that you require supplementation, consider the benefits of vitamin B12 injections in Lake Stevens from a medical professional.
B12 is an important nutrient that is necessary in the body to develop DNA and keep blood and nerve cells healthy. Adding a boost of energy is a bonus. Most people get enough B12 from the food they eat, as it is present in varying amounts in fish, fowl, eggs, milk and fortified cereals. However, should you have too much B12 in your system, it is not really possible to “OD” on it since it is a water-soluble vitamin. Excess amounts are excreted in waste products.
Signs that you may be vitamin B12 deficient include memory loss, numbness or tingling in the toes or fingers, tiredness, a painful tongue, mood changes, difficulty with walking. Note that these symptoms could be from any number of problems so be sure to get a diagnosis from a doctor.
