Afternoon: B12 Injection
Vitamin B12 lies at the core of our body’s ability to make DNA for new cells, form healthy red blood cells, and turn the food we eat into energy to power our metabolism. In the short term, insufficient B12 levels can lead to deep fatigue, mood changes, and dementia-like qualities, preventing you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level. In the long term, an unchecked vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to permanent nerve damage, which is why it’s important to catch it early.
While Dr. Oz recommends getting B12 through diet or supplements, Montel is an advocate of the B12 injection. Montel takes 1 ml of B12 daily via injection. You can receive B12 injections with a doctor’s prescription. If you don’t have prescription, a month supply of B12 injections will cost you about $35.
There are numerous vitamins, lozenges, dissolving oral tablets, lollipops and patches that deliver adequate amounts of B12, so choose a method that works for you. To learn more about how you can get more B12 in your diet, click here.
