Preservative-free Methyl B-12 (Methylcobalamin) Injections – New at Progressive Health Center!
More than one-third of adults in the U.S. population do not get enough B-12 in their diet, and deficiency rises with age.
B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is found naturally in some foods, added to others, and is available as a dietary supplement as well as a prescription medication. It exists in several forms, such as methylcobalamin, which supports methylation in the body and is the most commonly used form of B-12. Injection therapy for B-12 is superior to dietary supplements due to the fact that only about 50% of the B-12 dose is absorbed when ingested orally, whereas injection directly into the body tissues and bloodstream allow for complete access.
Vitamin B12 is found only in animal foods and fortified foods. People who avoid all animal products should look for meat alternatives, such as plant based protein products fortified with vitamin B12. The best sources of Vitamin B12 include: eggs, milk, cheese, milk products, meat, fish, shellfish and poultry. Some soy and rice beverages as well as soy based meat substitutes are fortified with vitamin B12. To see if a product contains vitamin B12, check the Nutrition Facts on the food label.
Common symptoms of a B-12 deficiency include impaired mental functionality, poor memory, “brain fog,” confusion, anxiety, emotional issues such as depression or irritability, low energy leading to fatigue (especially in the afternoon), shortness of breath, lightheadedness, dizziness, anemia, and muscular weakness.
