Many people who participate in a medical weight loss program will benefit from the addition of vitamin B-12 therapy. Although vitamin B-12 should be present in every person's body, many people have a vitamin B-12 deficit. This deficit may occur simply because the person isn't eating enough foods that are rich in vitamin B-12, or it may be because the body is no longer able to absorb vitamins as effectively as it ages. As many as 15 to 40 percent of all people in the United States have inadequate vitamin B-12 levels today, and that segment of the population are ideal candidates for vitamin B-12 therapy. People who are trying to lose weight often find B-12 therapy extremely effective.
Vitamin B-12 is known to help prevent the development of megaloblastic anemia, a condition which often causes body weakness and exhaustion. People who lack sufficient vitamin B-12 in their body may suffer from the chronic fatigue that characterizes megaloblastic anemia, even if they haven't developed anemia yet. People who don't have enough vitamin B-12 in their body often suffer from cravings that just won't go away. This may lead to the type of binges that can completely derail a diet.
Vitamin B-12 therapy helps medical weight-loss plan participants in multiple significant ways. Regular vitamin B-12 injections can not only help alleviate fatigue, but they can boost the effectiveness of the body's red blood and nerve cells. People who have regular vitamin B-12 therapy frequently enjoy a faster metabolism and more energy, which makes it far easier to stick to the diet plan. Many patients find that vitamin B-12 therapy helps them keep stress and depression from having such a negative impact on them.
*Each patient's experience is unique based on medical conditions and body composition, as each patient's body is different. The amount of weight loss may vary based on these and other variables such as program adherence and metabolic factors.
