Re: B-12 Injection Shots- Need 2 Gain Weight
B 12 does not make you burn fat it supplies energy which in turn helps speed up your metabolism. B12 helps to fight stress and depression, symptoms which are sometimes associated with weight gain but it doesn't directly cause weight loss. If that was the case B vitamins would not be able to be kept on the shelves. B vitamins are water soluble so what you do not absord you urinate out. They have to be replaced.
A lack of Vitamin B12 deficiency at the same time can cause you to loose weight. Weakness, fatigue, and lightheadedness, being pale,red tongue or bleeding gumsm nausea, decreased appetite, diarrhea and constipation and weight loss.
So if you are lacking B 12 in your body then you might be B12 anemic and taking b12 might help you regain a healthier weight. In order to find that out you would need to take a simple CBC blood test.
