B12 is also Cyanocobalamin, and is one of the essential B complex vitamins that our body needs. B12 is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. 

What are symptoms of B12 deficiency?

Vitamin B12 deficiency may lead to a reduction in healthy red blood cells (anemia). The nervous system also may be affected. Diet or certain medical conditions may be the cause. Symptoms are rare but can include fatigue, breathlessness, numbness, poor balance, and memory trouble.Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in anemia, stomach problems, and nerve damage.

How common is B12 deficiency?

B12 deficiency is very common as over 3 million cases of B12 deficiency are diagnosed annually in the US alone.

What causes of Vitamin B12 deficiency?

Common causes include poor absorption from the stomach or intestines, decreased intake, and increased requirements.[1] Decreased absorption may be due to pernicious anemia, surgical removal of the stomach, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, intestinal parasites, certain medications, and some genetic disorders.

Who gets B12 deficiency?

Although B12 deficiency is more common in vegans, B12 deficiency can occur even in people who consume meat, poultry, and fish. Children are at a higher risk for B12 deficiency due to inadequate dietary intake, as they have fewer vitamin stores and a relatively larger vitamin need per calorie of food intake.

Can you get B12 deficiency due to absorption issues in the stomach?

Yes. In some people, the stomach may not produce what is called intrinsic factor which is required for absorption of vitamin B12. In others, there are issues with absorption.

Can B12 be taken orally?

Yes. However, in many people, taking B12 orally may not be enough due either to lack of intrinsic factor as noted above or due to malabsorption issues.

How does B12 shot help better than taking pills?

Since B12 shots bypass the stomach and is given directly, we can avoid the absorption issues altogether.

Cost of B12 shots?

At most W8MD weight loss center locations, the cost of B12 is just $25.00 which compares favorably with most other places that charge over $40.
