We understand just how difficult it is to lose weight. We also know how difficult weight loss can be if you’re vitamin deficient.

At Murray’s Health & Wellness, we’re here to cover all of your healthcare needs. That’s why we’re proud to offer you vitamin B12 injections to help you shed those unwanted pounds with a healthy weight loss plan. Give yourself the best chance for weight loss this year!

B12 and weight loss

Vitamin B12 helps your body break down carbohydrates, protein, and fat. If your body is lacking in this essential nutrient, your weight loss efforts can be compromised as your body has trouble burning calories. 

Vitamin B12 also helps your body function by keeping your energy levels up. It maintains healthy nerve cells and helps in the production of DNA and RNA.

The risks of B12 deficiency

Sometimes, low levels of vitamin B12 can lead to anemia. You can also become fatigued, so in addition to helping you lose weight, B12 injections can boost your energy levels as well. 

When your energy is restored, you're more likely to become motivated and work out more which helps you lose weight. B12 restores your energy levels by restoring your red blood cells, which helps to boost your metabolism and improve your body’s overall functioning.  

Other factors that place you at an increased risk of developing a B12 deficiency include having diabetes, using metformin to regulate your blood sugar, having had gastrointestinal surgery, taking stomach-acid reducers for longer than two years, being HIV-positive, and having digestive disorders, like Chron’s disease and celiac disease. Your risk of developing a B12 deficiency also increases with age.  

B12 deficiencies in vegetarians and vegans 

Those who abstain from animal foods are more likely to develop a B12 deficiency since the vitamin is predominantly found in animal-based foods. So, it’s more difficult for vegans and vegetarians to get enough vitamin B12. 

For plant-based sources of B12, vegans may want to try: 

For B12 in vegetarian foods, try adding the following foods to your diet:

You can also use B12 supplements if you aren’t getting enough of the nutrients in your diet. But regular B12 injections for a period of time are the fastest and most efficient way to get the weight loss benefits of B12.
