B-12 Injections for Weight Loss: Their Effect in Men and Women Over 35

B-12 injections are offered as part of the SynergenX weight loss program to support effective fat burning. Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble B complex found naturally in a variety fish, meat and dairy products. It helps convert fats and proteins into energy and aids in the breakdown of carbohydrates. B-12 also regulates the nervous system. A deficiency can exacerbate symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress. Chronic stress is often associated with an increased risk of weight gain.

How do B-12 injections affect weight loss for men and women?

Vitamin B-12 turns the food you eat into glucose, which is a type of sugar that fuels the body. It also helps metabolize the enzymes found in fat and protein.This association with metabolism and energy is why many medical weight loss clinics offer B-12 injections as part of their weight loss treatment.

A recent study from Ireland suggests as many as one in ten adults may be deficient in vitamin B-12. Surprisingly, men are more likely to have the deficiency than women. Vegans, pregnant women, people with anemia or conditions that affect the small intestine are also at risk. Using vitamin B-12 to supplement deficiencies during weight loss programs allows the body to correct and effectively manage itself, making weight loss more likely.

While B-12 injections do not directly support weight loss, they can boost energy levels and metabolism as well as regulate feelings of stress, anxiety and depression—everything a person needs to get up and get moving.When used in combination with lipotropic injections, B-12 injections may also support medical weight loss.
