B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal function of the brain and central nervous system. Symptoms of B-12 deficiency include fatigue, depression, poor memory, loss of sleep, nerve problems, and more. When the vitamin is in short supply, elevated levels of Homocysteine are present in the body which has been linked with increased risk of Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease, and chronic fatigue. The body also needs B-12 to protect both DNA and RNA, help with weight loss, support immune function, and form red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body.
Medications have a profound effect on the levels of micronutrients in our body. Although medications are designed to help with symptoms, they often cause deficiencies of important vitamins that are vital to many bodily functions . Antacids, hormones, anti-convulsants, anti-inflammatories, diuretics, and antivirals are common causes of B-12 deficiency.
Methylcobalamin is the form of B-12 that occurs naturally in the body and is the only form we use for our injections and hydration packages. Methylcobalamin is the most bio-available form of B-12 and is ready for immediate use once injected into the body.
