Vitamin B12 is often thought of as the key energy booster. It supports the adrenal glands (stress and energy), neurological functioning (sleep and mood), red blood cell formation, and helps convert carbohydrates to glucose – the fuel your body uses for energy. Often used for weight loss, as you tend to feel better and with increased energy, you have the potential to burn more calories. B12 deficiency is a serious problem that can cause anemia, fatigue, weakness, constipation, weight loss, depression, poor memory, asthma, vision problems, and low sperm count.
Folate (sometimes referred to as Folic Acid) is often added to Vitamin B12 injections to treat and prevent Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia. Folic acid is used to treat or prevent certain anemias, and their associated symptoms of tiredness. Women of childbearing age should maintain adequate amounts of folic acid to prevent spinal cord birth defects.
Iron is an important part of your red blood cells and is needed to carry oxygen in the body. Iron dextran injections are used to treat iron deficiency anemia, when people cannot take iron by mouth because of side effects or because their anemia has not been successfully treated by it. Low iron levels can occur when the body can’t get enough iron from food (poor nutrition, poor absorption) or when there is a large or long-term blood loss.
Vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin that is necessary for building and keeping strong bones. Most people should get enough Vitamin D from exposure to the sun and from fortified food products, but in North America, we lack the ability to produce it efficiently and many people are chronically deficient. Three more surprising benefits of Vitamin D are its ability to fight disease (and reduce the likelihood of the flu), it regulates mood and wards off depression, and it boosts weight loss.
