A B12 deficiency can create problems even before anemia develops. It has serious, pervasive symptoms including tiredness, weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath, constipation, and more. It can also sabotage body systems responsible for weight management.
During aerobic exercise, which contributes to fat loss, the body relies strongly upon its respiratory and circulatory systems. Both of these are hindered by low B12 levels. In that case, exercise may produce fewer results, and fatigue means sufferers will be incapable of prolonged exercise.
B12 deficiency can lead to long-term weight control problems. When the body’s natural balance is disrupted, it typically responds by slowing down your metabolism, conserving fat stores, and burning fewer calories throughout the day.
Like many vitamin deficiencies, B12 problems are easily treatable. While it’s a good idea to change dietary habits to include more B12, injections are often the best way to return to a healthy and more energetic lifestyle. Nusbaum Weight Loss Centers of New Jersey offers a range of quick, easy nutrient injections which include methylcobalamin (the most easily absorbable form of B12) when you are feeling symptomatic.
