Benefits of B12 Shots

Whether your realize it or not B12 is a critical vitamin involved in very important processes in your body like energy production and metabolism. If you’re suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and have ever tried or considered trying vitamin B12 injections, you’re not alone. Many patients who suffer from relentless fatigue and the many other symptoms of CFS, such as pain and disrupted sleep, know about the potential vitamin B12 shot benefits.

One of the most common symptoms of B12 deficiency is increased fatigue or lack of energy levels. Vitamin B12 is required for proper energy production in your mitochondria. Recall from basic biology that your mitochondria produce energy for your body in the form of a molecule called adenosine triphosphate. Anything that lowers energy production in the mitochondria may manifest as fatigue.

Another very important benefit of vitamin B12 supplementation is an increase in basal metabolic rate or metabolism. Low vitamin B12, low mitochondrial energy production, low thyroid hormone, a history of recurrent dieting, etc. have all been shown to slow down your metabolism. B12 shots don't directly result in weight loss but they do in an indirect way.
