You easily drift to sleep. You sleep soundly, uninterrupted. You wake up refreshed and ready for your day. Isn’t that what we all want? When you aren’t sleeping well or getting enough sleep, your day also begins to suffer: work productivity, driving ability, and your overall health and energy levels drop significantly.
Sleep experts recommend seven to nine hours of sleep for adults. Yet how many of us hit that mark? Job, family, and all the other obligations of our waking hours, chip away at the sleeping hours, leaving us with a sleep deficit that some sleep experts say you can’t refill by sleeping more next time you go to sleep.
You actually want your sleep time to be a productive time! While you are ZZZing, your body is repairing itself. The organs are detoxing and digesting, and your nerves are finally getting a break from your demanding and stimulating day. There is much interest in understanding how to improve sleep — and ensure a replenishing good night’s sleep.
Dr. Shannon Wood Gallegos, the founder of B12 LOVE, notes that many customers come in for B12 shots for increased energy — and report back that along with noticing improved energy — they also notice a better night’s sleep.
“70% of the B12 LOVE clients that come in to receive a B12 injection tell me — from their personal observation — that they are falling asleep better and not waking up in the middle of the night. They say they are waking up feeling more refreshed since they have started B12 shots,” explains Dr. Shannon Wood Gallegos.
Frequently not being able to fall asleep within a reasonable amount of time (such as 30 minutes or less) could be a sign that you might be deficient in Vitamin B12. B Vitamins are especially important for healthy sleep. If you are having difficulty initially getting to sleep, sleep disturbances, insomnia, or other sleep-related problems, you should have your Vitamin B12 levels tested.
Low or borderline B12 levels point to a possible reason for your sleep issues. There is a solution! At B12 LOVE, an experienced medical professional will answer any health questions you have and administer a B12 LOVE Methylcobalamin shot — the superior, most bioactive form of B12. If you have tried other B12 shots (such as commercially available Cyanocobalamin, a synthetic form of B12, or Hydroxocobalamin, a natural form of B12) in the past, or take an oral Vitamin B12, come check out the difference that injectable B12 Methylcobalamin makes.
