If, like many Malaysians, you’ve tried everything to boost your energy, but still feel drained, you may want to start looking for answers elsewhere. Low levels of vitamin B12, a vitamin that lies at the core of our body’s ability to make DNA for new cells, form healthy red blood cells, and turn the food we eat into energy to power our metabolism, is often overlooked. Recent studies suggest anywhere from 15-40% of Americans don’t have adequate levels of B12 for optimal health.
Why is a lack of B12 of such concern? In the short term, insufficient B12 levels can lead to deep fatigue, mood changes, and dementia-like qualities, preventing you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level. In the long term, an unchecked vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to permanent nerve damage, which is why it’s important to catch it early.
Symptoms of B12 Deficiency
- Overall lack of energy
- Unusual mood changes
- Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
- Tingling or numbness in hands or feet
- Inflamed, red, cracked tongue
IV therapy is a wonderful way to get a high dose of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream. Thus, the nutrients are rapidly infused into the circulation and are delivered directly into the cellular space without having to go through the digestive tract. Many people notice superior immunity, increased energy and enhanced detoxification from the improvement in cellular health. When cellular health is supported, the body is able to effectively utilize the nutrients supporting the major bodily systems.
IV Energy Booster is a B complex IV. Vitamin B-12, or cobalamin, is a nutrient you need for good health. It’s one of eight B vitamins that help the body convert the food you eat into glucose, which gives you energy. Vitamin B-12 has a number of additional functions. You need it for the:
- Production of elements of DNA
- Production of red blood cells
- Regeneration of bone marrow and the lining of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts
- Health of your nervous system, which includes your spinal cord
- Prevention of megaloblastic anemia
Older adults are in the age group that’s most likely to be deficient in vitamin B-12. As you age, your digestive system doesn’t produce as much acid. This reduces your body’s ability to absorb vitamin B12. Getting vitamin B12 and other B vitamins through intravenous is the best way to give the necessary vitamins to the cells. If you are a vegetarian, there is a high probability that you are B12 deficient. Long term use of diabetic drug Glucophage also create B12 deficiency.
