VITAMIN B-12 DEFICIENCY

B12 shots are another important part of all the medical weight loss strategies offered at Thrive Health Solutions. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient. A vitamin B12 deficiency can sabotage our body’s systems responsible for weight management and impede the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Yes, it is found in foods like fish, poultry, eggs and milk, to name a few, but not in enough quantity to really help you lose weight. The same applies to over-the-counter supplements with promises that just don’t pan out. With B12 shots, this invaluable nutrient goes directly to the bloodstream instead of through the digestion process, which means you can get the benefits of it sooner. Which will boost your metabolism, increase your energy and best of all, speed up your ability to lose weight. B12 shots don’t just sound better, they work better. Which is why Vitamin B12 shots just might be the help you’re hoping for.
