Vitamin B-12 is a vitamin that is involved in many different metabolic processes. Many of the processes involved are chemical reactions that are burning the food that we eat to create the energy that we’re going to use. Vitamin B-12 has developed the nickname as the energy vitamin. A lot of people and weight loss clinics use Vitamin B-12 because it’s involved in these processes and metabolism, and it’s suggested that B-12 boosts the metabolism.
The reason that we use Vitamin B-12 injections in our clinics is simple. When you start consuming fewer calories, two things are happening: One is you’re going to feel the energy reduction, and the other is that you’re going to be consuming less B-12 through the foods that you eat. What we’ve found over the years is that B-12 injections help people get a boost in energy while they’re on a reduced calorie diet. That ultimately makes them feel better and helps them stick to the diet plan, and therefore be successful with their weight loss.
