Not sleeping well? Stressed? Noticing symptoms of irritability, lack of drive, reduced exercise capacity, fuzzy thinking, or tingling in your hands or feet? Vitamin B-12 deficiency or suboptimal levels of B-12 can cause all these symptoms. Regular use of heartburn medications, certain anti-diabetics, antibiotics, excessive coffee intake, and vegetarian diets can exacerbate vitamin B-12 deficiency, as can the aging process. Moreover, for anyone taking antidepressants, researchers have found better results when such medications are taken concurrent with vitamin B-12 shots. Vitamin B-12 plays an important role in protecting us from heart disease and supports healthy circulation, immune function, red blood cell production, mood regulation, memory, concentration, and mental clarity. B-12 shots are offered through the Wellness Center. Appointments are recommended, though walk-ins can be accommodated. Thursdays: 3–6 pm; $50 initial visit, $25 subsequent visits; one full business day cancellation required to avoid charge Body Composition Analysis Have your body composition measured with a professional-grade segmental bioimpedance analyzer.
