VITAMIN B12 CLINIC

B12 helps the body covert fats and proteins into energy and aids the breakdown of carbs. It speeds up the metabolism and of course the energy lift helps you to also become more active and motivated. 

B12 boosts energy levels and motivation, because of the above point it can stop you reaching for the high fat / sugar foods too. As your body doesn’t crave the instant hit because it is fatigued.

B12 produces blood cells, white that boost immunity and red that prevent metoblastic anaemia, carry oxygen and iron boosting your performance and relieving the common signs of anaemia.

B12 stops demyelination of nerves this enables them to send and receive messages. When B12 is suboptimal the myelin sheath around nerves degrades which can lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression, memory loss, pins and needles, insomnia as well as more severe mental health symptoms.

B12 acts as a precursor for serotonin receptors, essential for mood.

B12 regulates the thyroid, is fabulous for those with ME and fibromyalgia. 

B12 regulates the sleep wake cycle as it prompts proper release of melatonin.
