Excessive Caffeine – What’s the Issue?
Though there’s likely little harm in your daily morning coffee ritual, when your favourite caffeinated drink starts to become less of a pleasure and more of a crutch, it might be time to start exploring healthier options.
Because although caffeine can provide a temporary rush of energy, with excessive use you might find yourself feeling extremely tired, unable to concentrate or with a nasty headache whenever you skip your caffeinated drink of choice. Unfortunately, this can lead to something of a self-fulfilling prophecy – one that leaves you reaching for more caffeine in a desperate bid to delay these ‘caffeine crash’ symptoms.
What are the Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections?
Whether you’re struggling with caffeine use or not, vitamin B12 injections boast a range of great health benefits. For example:
– Increased energy release from food, leaving you feeling alert and energised.
– Helps regulate sleep, diet and other important bodily rhythms.
– Prevention (or management) of vitamin B12 deficiency or vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia.
You can find out more information surrounding Vitamin B12 and its benefits in our previous blog post:
Vitamin B12 injections could be useful for many individuals with a whole range of goals and motivations, but may be of particular benefit to those who are vitamin B12 deficient. Being deficient in vitamin B12 is very common, particularly amongst people who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.
– Pale skin or skin with a slight yellow tinge
– Sore tongue and mouth ulcers
– Pins and needles
– Vision disturbances
– Mood changes like irritability or depression
Vitamin B12 deficiency may also lead to anaemia. Symptoms of anaemia include:
– Extreme tiredness and/or lack of energy
– Loss of appetite and weight loss
If you have noticed any of these symptoms, it’s worth seeking advice from a GP or pharmacist. They may recommend some simple dietary changes, or other treatments like vitamin B12 injections. Vitamin B12 injections are not only beneficial to people with a deficiency, though.
For individuals looking to increase mental alertness, boost everyday energy or improve athletic performance, vitamin B12 injections could be the ideal supplement. And as vitamin B12 injections are introduced straight into the muscle, they’re absorbed rapidly, providing quickly noticeable yet lasting effects.
