More on Vitamin B12 shots

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that aids the body’s functioning of the brain and nervous system. It also helps keep the nerve and blood cells healthy, while assisting in the formation of new cells. Most people consume enough vitamin B12 in their everyday diet; however, dietary restrictions such as being vegan or vegetarian may cause one to have a vitamin B12 deficiency. This is because most people receive their portion from foods such as eggs, milk, poultry, and/or fish. When one is not consuming these foods, a deficiency develops. Some people with Crohn’s disease or celiac disease may also find that they have a vitamin B12 deficiency because their body is unable to absorb this essential nutrient correctly.

A vitamin B12 deficiency has a wide range of symptoms. This includes fatigue, numbness or tingling sensation in fingertips or feet, loss of appetite, constipation, weight loss, memory loss, and development of megaloblastic anemia. A vitamin B12 shot is a very effective type of treatment for people with this type of deficiency. This injection helps combat the symptoms and increases the level of vitamin B12 in one’s body. The injection allows for the nutrient to be transported directly into the bloodstream. Therefore, people that have difficulty absorbing this specific vitamin will now have a way of receiving enough B12 to keep their cells healthy and developing correctly. After the injection, one will notice an increase in energy levels and an increase in concentration and memory.

If you are interested in receiving a vitamin B12 shot or want to learn more about the effects of these injections, please contact Dr. Lee at (206) 319 – 5322 or visit Seattle Naturopathic and Acupuncture Center.

How does lipotropic injections help with weight loss?

Lipotropic nutrients are a class of natural ingredients that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. Dr. Lee has used this special formula for individuals who are “stuck” in their weight loss attempts and need that extra boost to achieve their goal weight. This injection has also been gratefully used for individuals who want to maintain their weight, or prevent re-gain of their lost weight. The main ingredients in the lipotropic injection are methionine, inositol, and choline. Some individuals will also benefit the addition of vitamin B12.

 

 

Methionine

assists in the breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body since it can be converted to Cytosine, which is a precursor to Glutathione, which is of prime importance in detoxifying the liver.

 

Inositol

helps to maintain proper electrical energy and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane. It also acts as a lipotropic which converts fats into other useful products. Inositol helps establish healthy cell membranes, which facilitate nerve impulses.

 

Choline

Assists in controlling your weight as well as cholesterol levels, keeping cell membranes healthy and in preventing gallstones. It is also most useful in the maintenance of the nervous system, assisting memory and learning, and may help to fight infections, including hepatitis and AIDS. Choline is critical for normal membrane structure and function. Choline is the major precursor of betaine, and it is used by the kidneys to maintain water balance and by the liver as a source of methyl-groups for Methionine formation. It is also used to produce the important neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. It assists in nerve impulse transmission, gallbladder regulation, liver functions and lecithin production.

 

B-12

is a vitamin which is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production.
