B12 is essential to health and wellbeing and the sad truth is that the vast majority of people have issues absorbing enough and are deficient.
And that's a big problem because B12 deficiency can cause some pretty severe symptoms and heres a big list of them!
And if these weren't enough it lowers your Libido too.
B12 protects your nervous & immune systems, boosts serotonin production, guards against age related cognitive decline and is vital in your energy and endurance levels. Who doesn't want more energy these days??
We absorb B12 in the gut but the trouble is that many factors are reducing our absorption levels. So even if you are a meat eater (no pun intended) its quite likely you are still deficient. As we age we absorb less so especially in the 40 & 50 plus ages groups extra B12 is essential to guard against age related horrors like Alzheimer's, Dementia & Parkinson's.
So I highly recommend B12 supplementation. Its water soluble so you cant overdose on it so if you have any of the symptoms of B12 deficiency or you are over 50 then its really important to increase your B12 and see what happens! Some people actually get B12 injections but I don't think that's really necessary. A good quality daily dose of Methylcobalamin B12 taken sublingually is an excellent choice and a wise health investment.
And look after your gut by reducing stress. I highly recommend avoiding gluten and reducing caffeine and alcohol . Plus eat lots of leafy green vegetables, switch to more organic produce and take high doses of probiotics. If you can reduce medications and antacids then that would be ideal too.
The long and short of it is B12 supplementation is a very wise move to power up your body and optimise your health both for now and in to the future.
