Vitamin B12 for Peak Performance

Vitamin B12: What is there not to like? Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is an essential nutrient for healthy body functions. It supports the blood cells, nerve and brain cells and muscle function. It plays a key role in the building proteins, hormones and neurotransmitters, and ensures healthy function of skin and hair growth.

Most healthy people absorb 56% of vitamin B12 from a varied diet or supplements. People with pernicious anemia, gastric surgery and vegans are at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency. Also, common medications impair vitamin B12 absorption, such as omeprazole (Prilosec), ranitidine (Zantac), metformin, and others. Enter vitamin B12 injections!

With benefits that outweigh risks, B12 injections of 500-1000 mcg weekly to monthly can be helpful for short and long range health goals. There are no reports of B12 toxicity or getting too much. Here is a short list of benefits.
