Vitamin B 12
Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA, the molecules inside cells that carry genetic information.
People who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet might be prone to deficiency because plant foods don't contain vitamin B-12. Older adults and people with digestive tract conditions that affect absorption of nutrients also are susceptible to vitamin B-12 deficiency.
Vitamin B-12 injections can:
- Increase energy levels, mood, and concentration.
- Improve metabolism and help with weight loss.
- Boost the immune system.
- Help improve sleep patterns.
- Help improve hair, skin and nails
