Every Cell in Your Body Needs B12!
Vitamin B12 is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Even Dr. Oz states that vitamin B12 is essential for your normal metabolic function and overall health (read our post about Dr. Oz on Vitamin B12). Too much to do and not enough time? Get a great energy boost with a weekly B12 shot. The great thing about vitamin B12 is that, unlike many other vitamins, it is so safe that the FDA has no upper limit! This means that there is no risk of overdosing when you get a vitamin B12 shot.

B12 increases metabolism, which can help with weight loss. With regular B12 shots and a combination of calorie reduction, you can lose weight faster with less hunger and more energy. If you really want to ramp up your weight loss, add lipotropics (fat burners) to your B12 shot. Body Beautiful Spa Phoenix provides B12 shots with or without MIC (also called lipotropics, fatburners, or “Slim Shots”). MIC is a combination of three amino acids (methionine, inositol, choline) that has been reported to increase fat metabolism and mobilization by the liver. Some case reports show the B12 MIC combination to improve weight loss, helping you get slimmer, by up to one additional pound per week! If you really want to powerful boost to weight loss, get L-Carnitine in your B12 MIC shot.
Methionine is a sulfur-based amino acid that helps prevent excess fat buildup in your liver and throughout body. Methionine helps prvent and relieve fatigue. Methionine may be useful in reducing allergies because it reduces histamine release. More methionine is needed to deactivate estrogens when estrogen levels are elevated to prevent the increased estrogens from reducing the flushing of fat from the liver and increasing cholesterol levels.
Aids in the metabolism of fats, aids in the redistribution of body fat, and helps to lower cholesterol levels. In addition, inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is actively involved in fat metabolism by functioning as a transporter for fatty acids. L-Carnitine both boosts energy and stimulates the body to burn triglycerides as fuel.
Vitamin B12 an essential vitamin that every cell in your body must have to stay in balance. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in both DNA synthesis on a cellular level and neurologic function. Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in blood, nerve, and mood disorders. The sad fact is that many people are B12 deficient, and they don’t even know it! A US Department of Agriculture study of 3,000 women and men showed that almost 50% had “low normal” or “deficient” B12 levels. The study did conclude that those who took B12 supplements were unlikely to have deficient or low B12 levels.
One of the challenges with B12 intake is that B12 is not that easily found in food – very few foods are B12 rich and these are essentially meat and eggs. This leaves especially vegans to look for sources elsewhere. Furthermore, only 1.2% of the B12 in an oral supplement is actually absorbed in the intestines. Fortunately B12 shots are available. When you have a B12 shot, the B12 is immediately absorbed into the bloodstream.
Vitamin B12 shots are highly recommended mood boosters as well. B12 is essential for your central nervous system to function properly. It is well known that nervous system dysfunction can lead to depression. Many people who suffer from occasional mild depression can try a B12 shot as a mood booster – some people have reported feeling happily giddy afterwards, but not for long. In a few hours, it settles and you are just happy!
