B12: Energize and Revitalize- Naturally

B12 plays many critical roles in your body's normal functioning- too long to list actually. There are various types of B12, and at AuraMD we only use Methylcobalamin, which is the most effective and expensive form of B12 that is specifically designed for immediate utilization by the body.  

Some individuals have problems synthesizing this active form of B12, those individuals can be easily identified by genetic testing with a deficiency in MTHFR gene functioning (up to 40% of population).  These individuals cannot make methylcobalamin which is the form the body can use and can have "normal B12" levels on lab values but little active B12 in their system.  Anyone can benefit from B12 injections, even if they are not deficient. However patients who are deficient typically notice even more pronounced improvement.

Common causes of B12 deficiency:

-Hypothyroidism (about 40% typically have comorbid B12 deficiency)

-Reflux (GERD)- drugs used to treat reflux such as PPIs (ex: omeprazole) or Pepcid/Zantac cause low B12 levels by limiting B12 absorption

-PCOS/Diabetics- metformin interferes with B12 absorption

-IBS/Crohn's disease- often have trouble in GI tract absorbing B12

-Vegetarians- low consumption in their diet
