Sick of Feeling Sick and Tired?
According to a study (Framingham Offspring Study) more than 39% of 3,000 volunteers had plasma B12 levels in the low normal range. Which for many people can be harmful, but yet often goes untreated. “Low normal” is frequently considered ‘normal’ and over looked by health professionals. Blood levels are not always the right way to determine whether or not one needs to supplement, symptoms are a better.
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin is an important vitamin for good health. It can be found in foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. It can also be made in a laboratory.
Vitamin B12 is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. B12 injections have been used for many years by famous personalities and politicians. There are several reasons why:
The injectable route contains 500 times more B12 than the recommended daily allowance.
When injected it is easily absorbed by the body and utilized to form red blood cell and it aides in the maintenance of healthy nervous and cardiovascular system.
The three primary benefits of vitamin B12 are increased energy (which aides in weight loss), improved sleep, and a feeling of alertness.
Vitamin B12 is also used for memory loss; Alzheimer’s disease; boosting mood, energy, concentration and the immune system; and slowing aging. It is also used for heart disease, lowering high homocysteine levels (which may contribute to heart disease), male infertility, diabetes, sleep disorders, depression, mental disorders, weak bones (osteoporosis), swollen tendons, AIDS, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, allergies, a skin disease called vitiligo, preventing cervical and other cancers, and skin infections.
Some people use vitamin B12 for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), multiple sclerosis, preventing the eye disease age-related macular degeneration (AMD), Lyme disease and gum disease. It is also used for ringing in the ears, bleeding, liver and kidney disease, and for protection against the poisons and allergens in tobacco smoke.
