Vitamins are essential for healthy living, because the body doesn’t naturally produce vitamins, we must supplement or consume nutrient rich foods to survive.
Having a vitamin deficiency could be setting you back from your weight loss goals, therefore it is imperative to have these injections to help level your body’s systems.
Vitamin B12 (known as Cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that helps with a multitude of normal functions of the body. B12 helps maintain the brain, nervous system, blood formation, metabolism of cells, DNA regulations and is highly involved with the metabolism of fatty and amino acids. If you suffer from, low energy, fatigue, mental fogginess, concentration difficulties, low blood pressure or muscle weakness, you could be B12 deficient.
For people struggling with weight loss, the low energy levels and fatigue can be what is preventing losing weight. The B12 injections stimulate the body to convert carbohydrates into fuel and energy at a faster rate. This enables the body to fight through the afternoon slumps, high intensity works, burn calories and melt fat to shed the pounds!
The effects of B12 should be almost immediate, unless you are B12 deficient. You’ll notice a spike in energy, without the worry of crashing or feeling on edge. The metabolizing role it plays in every cell allows it to put energy when and where it needs to go to get you through the day without feeling sluggish.
B12 helps your body extract other key nutrients from the foods we eat. If taken while maintaining a nutritious diet, your body will stop craving processed, unhealthy foods.
B12 is a complicated vitamin, its absorption and distribution process can be complex due to the digestive system. Taking B12 by injections allows for the vitamin to immediately enter the bloodstream, which allows the body to fully utilize the B12. With oral B12 supplements, most of the nutrients will be lost before your body can utilize it.
Historically, B12 was used to help cure pernicious anemia, an often deadly disease. Other than B12 deficiencies that have treatable symptoms such as fatigue, poor memory and depression, there can be other serious symptoms and illnesses such as psychosis, mania, Imersund- Grasbeck syndrome, Crohn’s or Celiac disease. However, after studies were done in the 1960’s, it was determined that B12 could help with energy, weight loss and weight control.
B12 has a very low toxicity level, because of this, side effects of B12 and large doses pose no threat or harm to the body. What can’t be used, will be expelled from the body. Side effects from B12 are extremely rare, however if anything feels “off” seek medical care.
There are different types of B12 shots depending on your needs. At Premier Med Spa, we use methylcobalamin Lipotropic injections for several reasons. Methylcobalamin B12 is a more bio-active shot than Cyanocobalamin, which means your body doesn’t have to work as hard to utilize the B12. Smokers’ bodies have a hard time converting cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin due to the toxins in their bodies. Methylcobalamin is able to help increase the metabolism and ensure the body receives optimal nutrition to sustain and maintain normal functions. This helps the body burn up its fat stores which reduces the body’s fat circumference and lowers the pounds reflecting on the scales.
Premier Med Spa utilizes the B-Lipo shot, which has a combination of essential vitamins, amino acids and minerals to provide additional support for the liver. The natural ingredients are vitamin B12, Methionine, Inositol and Choline which promote overall wellness and aid in metabolic processes. B-Lipo shots enable clients to get the nutritional support they need to shed the pounds while supporting the normal functions of the liver.
