Happy Fitness Friday y’all! Today I want to chat about vitamin B12 injections! I am no stranger to these suckers. When I was growing up in Alabama my momma would go to this man who had bread beautiful horses and she would buy big bottles liquid vitamin B12 and the shampoo and conditioner he used for his horses ( Mane n Tail) and she would inject me and my sister in the butt with B12 . Plus we used the shampoo and conditioner, I recently saw it in Urban Outfitters and thought wow my mom is pretty smart. Anyway no joke my mom and sister would literally chase me around the house and hold me down b/c I was so scared of the needle. I would get my courage up and then right before she poked me I would take off running! My southern momma would preach about how it was gonna give me and my sister beautiful hair skin and nails and how I was gonna thank her one day. Well thanks Mom! B12 is known to help strengthen your nails, hair, increase energy and some say lose weight. Here is my opinion on it: First find out if you need it. I had a spectrum cell test done last year, its a very detailed blood test, and I came back good in everything except b12. I am also anemic but the spectrum test does not test for iron fyi. That being said I love this article from Shape magazine talking about b12 I think this is a great read before you try the injections. If you do in fact find out that you are one of the many people who is running low on this really valuable vitamin then don’t be scared. I doesn’t hurt and you are putting something great in your body. Every doctor visit I get a shot and it usually cost 25.00 I just purchased 10 b12 shots from Cederhouse in Hollywood for 79.00 that was an awesome deal! Personally I want to get to know the person who is seeing my rear end and injection me with a needle so I intend to keep going back to my girl at even when it goes back to regular price. I am consistent and get the b12 shots one a week in the summer because wedding season is in full swing and about one every 2 weeks during the rest of the year. I have tried the B Skinny before but I did not feel any difference. My next venture is trying the IV drip. Lowd have mercy I get a weedy even thinking about it but my friends who have tried it say it is amazing! Have any of you tried the Iv drip?
