Increase your metabolism! Want more energy? Lose weight quicker! These are all headlines you will find when researching vitamin injections. Even in my nutrition class, my professor encouraged B Vitamin injections. I decided to do my own experiment.
I went in to get my first shot, the nurse told me that this was better than a vitamin pill because it would restore me on a metabolic level. In my research I did find that B12 injections can bypass some of the potential absorption barriers. She also told me I would feel a difference in my body within three hours. I felt that was a pretty bold assertion, but I was excited to see what would happen. Would I suddenly kill it at the gym? Would I be laser focused at work? I didn’t feel a difference that day.. . I had bought a package of six, and did one on Monday and one on Friday of every week. I was also going to the gym at least four times a week and eating better. So, all in all I did feel great. I cannot attribute it to anything, but having a placebo effect. It did motivate me to be healthier in my all around day-to-day life. It did make me feel like I was being a healthier person. For some reason that inspired me to make better choices throughout my week. And just for that reason, I can’t say I wouldnt do it again.
