Cold, dreary winter days can make us all feel a little less energetic, especially for people who are deficient in vitamin B-12. 

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble B complex vitamin that helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein.It is found naturally in a variety of foods, including meat, fish and dairy products.  Vitamin B-12 is also added to some foods and is available as a dietary supplement.  It is important for normal blood, cells, and nerves. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, but a deficiency may occur in certain health conditions, such as poor nutrition, stomach and intestinal problems, infection, cancer and anemia.

Robin Stoloff discusses the benefits of a Vitamin B-12 shot with a local plastic surgeon.
