You may want to get all the Vitamin B-12 you need from what you’re eating or by taking a multivitamin… But, you’re really NOT getting what you need! Vitamin B-12 requires the assistance of Intrinsic Factor to enter the body from the small intestine. Without Intrinsic Factor, dietary Vitamin B-12 or ‘B-12 containing supplements’ go unabsorbed. The intramuscular shot of B12 (Methylcobalamin) is the most potent and metabolically active form of Vitamin B12 found in nature. We need methylcobalamin for the healthy development and sustenance of our circulatory, immune and nervous systems. Monthly injections of Vitamin B-12 can correct anemia – as well as immune and neurological problems that sneak up on people with pernicious anemia. It also acts to reverse nerve damage and promote nerve cell regeneration; Peripheral neuropathy can be greatly reduced by monthly injections of methylcobalamin as well. B12 (Methylcobalamin) plays a key role in sleep as well. It helps the brain fill up its neurotransmitter “gas tank” when neurotransmitters are produced from amino acids. Similarly, depression can be alleviated more quickly and completely when patients take methylcobalamin.
Vitamin B12 is another nutrient necessary for proper central nervous system function. Many of us are deficient and do not realize it. Many people who take this as a supplement on a regular basis report they have more energy, healthier immune systems, less allergies, stress, depression, more stamina, better sleep, and less frequent, less severe headaches.
