  • Poor muscle function

  • Ataxia (uncontrolled muscle movements)

  • Changes in reflexes

  • Infertility

  • Delayed growth/development in children

If you are currently taking heartburn, acid-reflux or GERD medications, the ability to produce B-12 is affected.  According to the Mayo ClinicH-2-receptor blockers (cimetidine, famotidine and ranitidine) & Proton pump inhibitors (omeprazole, esomeprazole and lansoprazole) specifically can block the production of B-12 in the Stomach, as sufficient stomach acid is required for proper B-12 absorption.  Additionally, if you suffer from anemia, you may be B-12 deficient.  Typically shots are given once per week, but can also be given as needed.

Benefits of B-12:

  • Increase energy levels and combat fatigue

  • Speed up metabolism

  • Help improve sleep patterns

The methyl form of cobalamin is reported to be more bioavailable than cyanocobalamin, retained longer and in much higher quantities in tissues, and specifically works to repair nervous system issues.  As every aspect of physiology is dependent upon proper nerve conduction and health, a deficiency of this crucial vitamin may greatly affect your health. Plus, Vitamin B-12 injections make you feel your best everyday!
