Vitamin B12 Deficiency

As far as I know, vitaminB12 deficiency causes anemia, am I right? This vitamin is needed to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of your body. Naturally, it is derived from animal products such as red meat, dairy, and eggs. Anemia may make you feel tired, weak, and even short of breath. I know one good solution in order to avoid all these. You can take vitamins as a preventive measure. I am browsing very intriguing resources at the moment. You can find Alaffia brand here and many others. I think I will definitely order something by the end of the day.

Are you taking heartburn / acid reflux medication? Meds like Prilosec work by killing the enzyme in your stomach that alow it to produce acid... problem is, your body cant convert and absorb Vitamin B without that enzyme, so users of these Meds develop a vitamin deficiency.

I get heartburn quite often, so I knock it back with Pepcid (Tums) which isn't good because it doesn't allow your body to fix itself, but its certainly more mellow to knock it out short term than to take a medication that causes the aforementioned issues.

For sure, it's important to have enough levels of B12 specially when hitting weights trying to build muscle on a daily basis. So yeah, if you are on a strict and demanding program go ahead and take vitamins as you might need them. However, I've noticed that to have a balanced immunity and body function you really need a natural detoxifier that promotes a healthy gut and boosts your energy levels. This is where these fantastic apple gummies come in, and you are on the right road to pure wellness!

I'm not a gym freak, but I really like apple cider and I will give gummies a try as they seem more pleasant and stomach friendly!

Vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to Pernicious Anemia. Generally, it is caused by a malabsorption problem of the gut of which there are a few causes like surgery, autoimmune disease, or a diet lacking in B-12 (no meat, dairy, or eggs). It is generally easy to supplement as noted in the above answers and easily discovered with a blood test.

Do you ever have patients who are sick because of a deficiency and when they supplement they get better?

Would you tell patients to supplement with D?

I'm going take some right now. . . .

Vitamin B12 is one of the main ones. Its deficiency usually develops with its insufficient absorption or lack in the diet. Severe drought can cause permanent neurological damage. Most of the vitamin B12 is found in animal products.
Well, I also took vitamin B12 for a while. It all started because I decided to become a vegan with my already poor health. As a result, a variety of diseases were divorced. I needed a whole complex of vitamins already. Then I turned to https://www.xcellr8.health/iv-hydration-therapy/, and they picked up a complex of vitamins for me. This therapy is called intravenous rehydration therapy. This brought me back to normal. I am no longer a vegan.

When I lived in Africa I worked with Italians. They saw me taking a daily multi vitamin and asked what it was. I told them it was vitamins. They said, "In Italy we get our vitamins from food." Seems like a good plan.
