Did you know that vitamin B12 is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world? This vitamin regulates several functions of the body, while combating adrenal fatigue and memory loss. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms you may have a deficiency in B12:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle aches and joint pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Memory loss
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Heart palpitations
  • Digestive problems

When your body is not receiving enough vitamin B12, red blood cell counts are lower causing fatigue, confusion, weakness, and even anemia. The elderly, vegetarians, and vegans are particularly at risk, however, anyone is susceptible to experiencing these symptoms. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, thus explaining why vegans and vegetarians may be more at risk. Adults over the age of 50 do not produce as much stomach acid, which is essential for the absorption of this vitamin. This can be prevented by taking your daily dose of vitamin B12 through a supplement or increasing your intake of foods, such as meat and fish. By doing this, your body will experience several benefits, including:

  • Increased energy
  • Prevention of Alzheimer’s
  • Nervous System Support
  • Cardiovascular Support
  • Healthy Skin and Hair
  • Digestive Aid
  • Red Blood Cell Production
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Anxiety and Depression Prevention
