The Importance of Vitamin B12
Welcome to another HealthNews video news release brought to you by HealthNews.
In today’s news, we look at the importance of vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 deficiency impacts 6% of the population under 60 and 20% over 60.
Lack of Vitamin B12 can contribute to permanent nerve damage including damage to your brain so it should be taken seriously.
Vitamin B12 is found in meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, or eggs, as well as foods that have been fortified with vitamin B12 like some breakfast cereals.
Unfortunately for vegetarians and vegans, plants do not contain B12.
Some signs that you might be B12 deficient include:
1. Forgetfulness or decline in mental ability
2. Muscle weakness
3. Numbness or tingling
4. Restless legs syndrome
6. Abnormal gait
Many people with B12 deficiency can be treated just by eating more animal products, and most can be treated by taking B12 supplements.
Some people may need B12 injections.
You can improve your overall health by eating a nutritious diet right for your Metabolic Type, regular exercise, quality sleep, and a positive attitude.
Remember your best source for diet, nutrition, and supplement information is your Metabolic Typing Advisor, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner.
