Are you suffering from the holiday blues? Many do. It could be a Vitamin B12 deficiency.

holiday bluesVitamin B12, an essential water-soluble vitamin that the body uses to maintain healthy nerve cells, produces RNA, DNA and red blood cells and help iron to function properly. B12 also works to produce the amino acids, which helps control mood and supports immune function. In some cases it has been linked to relieving depression.

 

B12 injections have many benefits and are often prescribed for deficiencies that cause fatigue, shortness of breath, diarrhea, numbness and neurological damage.

Studies have linked depression with a Vitamin B12 deficiency.

Why get a B12 shot?

One of the benefits of B12 injections over oral supplements is its immediate availability to the body. Injections that go directly into the blood stream bypass absorption barriers according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and can help people with malabsorption issues like those who have intestinal disorders.
