The Surprising Benefits of B-12

Female Patients Beverly Hills CA

March is here, spring is almost here, and it can be more difficult to keep energy at its peak. You feel that you have tried everything to increase your energy level, but still feel exhausted. Sometimes it’s easy to blame poor energy on the weather, but what if there is an alternative reason?

B-12 Deficiency

One cause could be a deficiency in vitamin B-12. According to John’s Hopkins, more than 3 million cases of vitamin B12 deficiency are diagnosed each year. These are only the diagnosed cases. The chances are high that vitamin B-12 deficiency is much more prevalent. Symptoms of this deficiency include:

  • Weak muscles
  • Numbness and tingling in extremities
  • Trouble Walking
  • Nausea
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Increased heart rate

There are steps you can take to increase B-12 naturally. By consuming foods rich in B-12 such as spinach, rice, barley, sprouts, green leafy vegetables, oranges, asparagus, peas, lentils and chickpeas, symptoms can often be alleviated.

B-12 Injections Offered at AuraSpa

With our busy lifestyles, sometimes our nutrition suffers. Long days at the office, shuttling kids to activities and the constant pressure to perform at our peak can lead to skipped meals, infrequent exercise and poor nutrition choices. Other causes are much less obvious, such as increased alcohol consumption and gut conditions including celiac disease and leaky gut syndrome. Low stomach acid and some medications can also contribute to low levels.
