Vitamin B12 | Lipo Shot | Pure Energy | Meadows Surgical Arts

B12.  Or as we like to call it, PURE ENERGY.  This is the magic bullet, the tiny little vitamin that packs a power punch of energy. It's an ingredient in almost every energy drink, every energy supplement, everything out there that's marketed for a "boost" of energy.

But what is it?

Vitamin B12 is a vital nutrient that is essential to several cellular processes in the body. It helps to make your DNA and red blood cells.  It keeps our nerve cells healthy, and helps us fight diseases.   


Your body does not make B12, so you need to get it from animal-based foods, or supplements. It is naturally found in animal products such as fish, meat, and poultry, as well as dairy products like milk, butter, and cheese. For those who do not eat meat or dairy, it is available in fortified grains like breakfast cereals, as well as soy products and supplements.  


Over 40% of people are deficient in B12, and with age, it becomes harder for our bodies to absorb it. That explains why so many of us feel fatigued and sluggish, with inexplicable aches and pains. Once we improve our diets to include this vitamin, or supplement with oral or injectable B12, we perk right up and have a ton of energy to get up and get moving. That's why Lipo B12 injections are included as part of our medical weight loss program... while B12 does not actually eliminate fat at the cellular level, it gives us the energy to get off the couch, out of the house, and live the fullness of our lives with improved moods and energy. Once we do that, the weight loss often follows as a natural result.

If taken via oral supplements, B12 is required daily. If taken via injection, you only need your B12 fix once a week. PURE ENERGY.
