Vitamin B12 is a co-enzyme produced by microorganisms found in (non depleted) soils and the guts of animals. Humans have to obtain it through diet, it is absorbed in the small intestine and stored in the liver. B12 is crucial to our health and has many roles to play in the body including; supporting the nervous system, red blood cell production, DNA synthesis, and energy production from fats and proteins. As B12 deficiency has such diverse symptoms it is often difficult to diagnose. A mild deficiency can cause fatigue, weakness and a general sense of feeling low in mood and tired. Left untreated, symptoms can progress to include, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, depression, anaemia, nausea, heart burn, muscle weakness and tingling in the hands and feet. Late stage deficiency symptoms include nerve damage, neurological damage and digestive system damage.
B12 booster shots benefit the body in so many ways including increasing energy levels, preventing anaemia, improving mood, improving memory and brain function, supporting bone health and maintaining health skin and hair.
It is highly important to supplement if you are on a predominately plant-based diet. B12 Booster shots are a quick, easy and safe way to increase your levels, and as B12 is water-soluble, any excess your body does not require will simply be eliminated.
The B12 booster injections offered at NH Aesthetics Harrogate is in the highest absorbency and naturally occurring form, B12 Methylcobalamin.
