Understanding U

Vitamin B12

  1. If U are struggling to get going, U may be deficient in B vitamins
  2. Vitamin B12 deficiency has become a silent epidemic
    • Side effects: fatigue, lack of energy, sluggishness, and dizziness
    • Example: A person low on red blood cells may have pernicious anemia, B12 deficiency anemia caused by an inability to absorb the vitamin B12 needed for your body to make those healthy red blood cells
  3. B12 Rich Foods: dairy products, eggs, meat, poultry, and fish
    • Vegetarians and Vegans are at high risk for B12 deficiency – be sure to supplement vitamin B12
  4. Your body doesn’t store B12 for a long period of time
    • As U age your body’s absorbency rates decrease, making it even more challenging to ensure that U are getting B12 nutrients
  5. B12 helps manufacture your DNA and red blood cells
    • Essential to endurance activities
  6. Heavy drinking and long-term use of acid-reducing medications can also inhibit the absorbency of vitamin B12
    • Heavy alcohol consumption is not good for your body for a variety of reasons, the impact on vitamin B12 absorbency being one of them
    • Acid reflux and heartburn are common conditions that are also brought on by deeper-rooted factors that should be looked into
    •  Eliminating the need for medications for the issue would be a win-win situation partitioning of the nutrients U eat depending on fat mass
  7. The average adult should get 2.4 micrograms/day
  8. Sublingual (under the tongue) – vitamins provide supplementation with a maximum absorbency (superior absorption rate in the bloodstream)
  9. Make sure your vitamins are preservative-free and promote improved overall health, energy, metabolism, and mental acuity all around
