Fatigue, weakness and a general feeling of sluggishness can be a sign that you are deficient in vitamin B-12, an essential nutrient that helps the body convert fuel to energy. Proper B12 levels regulate metabolism and burn fat, so a deficiency can mean our bodies are not working at peak efficiency.
Since our ability to metabolize the B-12 tends to diminish with age, supplementation of this important vitamin is something many adults who’ve reached middle age and beyond can consider.
Terry Conrad, APRN administers B-12 injections at her boutique medi-spa in Greenwich, CT. to help patients who are seeking a healthy, natural approach to increasing their energy levels and keeping their metabolisms running smoothly.
Terry recommends B-12 injections over supplements because this method of administration bypasses the digestive system, delivering the vitamin boost directly into the bloodstream. This results in a more immediate metabolism of the vitamin than occurs when taking oral supplements.
Terry favors this approach because there is clinical evidence which supports its efficacy. She notes that researchers who used high doses of B-12 injections to treat patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) found their subjects experienced an 80 percent increase in perceived energy levels as well as improved sleep habits.
Some other benefits her patients have experienced can include:
