Navigation Links Discusses the Possibility of B12 Shots for Weight Loss

NEW YORK, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It is no secret that Americans have an obesity problem. With more than one third being overweight or obese gyms and supplement companies are in line to make massive profits. Most of the time the condition is primarily related to dietary issues and a lack of physical activity but on occasion it can be the result of a glandular problem or even a vitamin deficiency.


One common vitamin deficiency is a lack of vitamin b12. The vitamin is one of the most important nutrients for the human body and it is also not produced naturally by the body. This means that the vitamin must be consumed in order to stay at the proper levels in the body and vegetarians are sometimes at risk more so than the average person since b12 is often found in meat products.

So how can vitamin b12 be used for weight loss? B12 contributes to several bodily functions and some will directly affect your weight loss progress and others will indirectly affect your weight loss.

Here is a list of b12 benefits and how they can affect your ability to lose fat:

  • Metabolism- Vitamin b12 is well known for its ability to improve metabolism, specifically the ability to convert carbohydrates to glucose which makes it very helpful with creating energy. This is a direct benefit and indirect benefit as the metabolism of carbs is a direct benefit and if the additional energy created is used for fitness purposes then it is providing a benefit there as well.
  • Neurological- Vitamin b12 also has neurological benefits. By protecting the nervous system the vitamin has been credited with assisting with mood and thinking. This is an indirect benefit since thought and a good mood does not necessarily help one lose weight but someone who is thinking clearly and happy is more likely to participate in some sort of calorie burning activity.
  • Anti-oxidant- This is both a direct benefit and indirect benefit. B12 is a powerful anti-oxidant which removes free radicals from the body. After a strenuous workout the vitamin helps in removing the toxins released in your blood. Obviously less free radicals also means less illness which means less time away from the gym.
  • Hormones- This is another direct benefit. B12 helps keep the cell membranes healthy allowing hormones to pass through then easily. Someone who is working out and eating a high protein diet is likely to increase natural testosterone and growth hormone production. By allowing these hormones to pass through cells easily it ensures efficiency and maximum benefit.

These four functions are just the tip of the iceberg for vitamin b12 but as can easily be seen this vitamin can have a direct and indirect impact in a person's ability to maximize weight loss.
