Vitamin B12 Deficiency Treatment
Vitamin B12 is a member of the B complex of vitamins and is primarily responsible for brain and nervous system health. If you don’t have enough B12 in your system, you could become deficient in B12. There are several possible B12 deficiency causes that you will want to watch out for if you are concerned about the level of B12 in your body. There are also, however, several vitamin B12 benefits which can be experienced if you take B12 on a regular basis. In order to help make sure that you have enough B12 in your body, IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles offers vitamin B12 injections made from some of the best ingredients that the medical industry has to offer.
Vitamin B12 Benefits
In addition to being primarily responsible for brain and nervous system health, vitamin B12 plays a part in the metabolization of every cell in the body, so it is also important for converting food into fuel for energy. Despite the vitamin B12 benefits, there is no way for the human body to make this nutrient on its own, which is why so many people decide to take regular B12 supplements. Many of the people taking B12 supplements, however, take the supplement in pill form, which may not be as potent or as effective as injecting the nutrient directly into the bloodstream through IV vitamin therapy.
B12 Deficiency Causes
B12 deficiency causes include reduced B12 intake, usually due to a poor diet, or malabsorption of the intestine, which is responsible for transmitting vitamin B12 from the digestive system into the bloodstream where it can travel to where it is needed throughout the rest of the body. A lack of vitamin B12 due to one of these reasons can result in poor muscle function, low red blood cell count, depression, and psychosis. In both of these common cases, vitamin B12 injections can help.
IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles
An upscale, boutique style medical office, IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles is a full service medical provider specializing in IV vitamin therapy of B12, other B complex vitamins, and a host of other nutrients. The main benefit of IV vitamin therapy is that it allows nutrients like vitamin B12 to be injected directly into the bloodstream, instead of sending the nutrients through the digestive system as would be required if the nutrients were consumed orally. When introduced through the digestive system, the stomach and the liver degrade the potency and effectiveness of consumed nutrients and only allow a small fraction of the amount consumed to actually enter the bloodstream. With IV vitamin therapy administered by a basic IV drip, 100% of the injected nutrients are delivered into the bloodstream where they can begin traveling to the areas of the body where they are needed
Most IV vitamin sessions last from 20 to 60 minutes and patients remain awake and aware the entire time, leaving plenty of time and opportunity to work remotely or relax with something good to read. IV therapy sessions can take place in our quiet and modern medical offices or, if you elect our concierge house call service, in the comfort and privacy of your own home or office. Aside from the slight pin prick of a needle at the sight of injection, little to no discomfort is usually reported by patients who receive B12 injection therapy. Plus, since nutrients injected directly into the bloodstream can begin having a positive effect on the body almost immediately after injection, it is not uncommon for patients who receive vitamin B12 injections to leave sessions feeling renewed, energized, and in good spirits.
