B vitamins are one of the most common deficiencies in the U.S. B vitamins can be depleted by stress, lifestyle (increased alcohol, coffee), Birth control pills, hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), chronic use of antacids or other acid blocking medication.
Signs of B-vitamin deficiency are: Fatigue, depression, mental confusion, anorexia, muscle weakness, palpitations, muscle wasting, neuropathy, glaucoma, insomnia, anxiety, acne, dry skin with itchy eyes and sensitivity to light, swelling of the tongue, anemia, high cholesterol, multiple sclerosis, bell’s palsy, dementia, migraines, burning foot sensation, arthritis, eczema, SLE-lupus, nausea during pregnancy, PMS, anemia of pregnancy, allergies, canker sores, hepatitis, herpes zoster, psoriasis, Alzheimer’s, sciatica, bone spurs in feet, heart disease or osteoporosis related to high homocysteine, GI disturbances, restless leg syndrome, malabsorption and GI inflammation, gingivitis, and gout.
If you have any of the conditions listed above then B12, folic acid and B-complex injections may be for you. Depending on the condition, you can get them daily to one time a week until the condition improves. B vitamins may be the answer you are looking for in improving your condition. However, there is a difference in taking oral form verses the injectable. If your digestion is compromised then injections are the right choice for you. B12 in particular, is better absorbed sublingually or IM (intramuscular). When receiving an injection, it bypasses the digestive process and gets right into the blood.
