Boost Your Brain with B12
Vitamin B12 plays a role in brain function and the nervous system. B12 is also needed for proper red blood cell formation and energy production. Elderly people (and anyone else who is deficient in B12) can prevent a number of potential health complications by getting B12 injections.
Studies have shown that B12 levels tend to decline with age. Poor dietary choices and lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach are two reasons older people may be B12 deficient. In addition to the elderly, there are other groups of people who may benefit from B12 shots. These include vegetarians, people taking antacid medications, and those with low iron levels.
At Penticton Naturopathic Clinic we give injections of B12 and B-Complex vitamins (B1-B6). The combination of B-vitamins works together to provide a boost of energy and supports improved mood and brain function. Vitamin B12 can also be taken orally. The most easily absorbed forms of B12 are liquid drops or tablets which dissolve under the tongue. B12 injections ensure maximum absorption because the vitamins go straight into the blood stream.
