Can a vitamin B12 injection benefit my mood and reduce anxiety?

While not a cure-all for mood disorders, vitamin B12 plays a role in your mental well-being. Here’s how B12 injections might support mood and reduce anxiety:

  • Neurotransmitter Production: B12 is involved in creating neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which regulate mood. A deficiency can impact their levels, potentially contributing to low mood or anxiety symptoms.
  • Reducing Inflammation: Some research suggests low B12 might be linked to inflammation, which can negatively affect mood. Injections help restore levels, potentially combating this effect.
  • Supporting Overall Health: B12 deficiency can cause fatigue, weakness, and other physical symptoms that worsen mood and increase anxiety. Replenishing B12 may indirectly improve mental well-being by boosting your energy and wellness.

Important Note: If you have a diagnosed mood disorder, B12 injections won’t replace professional treatment, but they might be a helpful supplement to your care plan.
