B12 SHOTS Atlanta
What is B12?
B12 is a vitamin essential in several physiologic processes. B12 critical for the function of blood cells and nerves. Deficiencies can be caused by inability to absorb B12 in the diet, causing nutritional problems leading to poor absorption and even weight gain. People with gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s’ disease or Celiac disease may become deficient. Humans cannot make B12 and it is found in meat and animal products but not in plant-based diets. Strict vegetarians are at risk for B12 deficiency without supplementation. A B12 shot can rapidly replenish a deficiency.
