So, as I stipulated yesterday, B12 is a great vitamin; a supplement that helps to reduce pain – such as that of neuropathy. One of my clients suffers horribly from that.
Vitamin B12 protects nerve and brain cells from any free radical damage meaning that any atom or molecule which has a single unpaired electron in an outer shell. It seems to be the reason for FRTA or what is known as the free radial theory of aging. It is believed that free radical damage is the reason that organisms age over time since cells accumulate.
The creation of healthy DNA and RNA, our genetic material, is in part due to Vitamin B12. B12 also works in conjunction with other B vitamins in order to form red blood cells. Together, they also support immune system health, improve moods, protect the cardiovascular system, and maintain overall energy levels.
Like I stipulated in yesterday’s post, bacteria in the gut can create B12, but even he is uncertain as to whether or not that production is adequate to support the energy basis that human bodies need. Animal foods are the only other natural source of B12. Dairy products, organ meat like the liver and kidneys, eggs, meat from cattle and pigs and seafood are all examples of natural B12. Unfortunately, these varieties of food, according to Dr. Edward Group on the website http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/four-types-vitamin-b12/, often carry a heavy toxic burden.
If your client is vegan, it is very important that they supplement their diet with vitamin tablets. Vegetarians get their supplements through dairy. Meat eaters get B12 through all of the sources named.
If your client suffers from early symptoms of B12 deficiency, you should know the signs so that you can help them. The symptoms include fatigue, digestive problems and nausea. If the symptoms are advanced, your clients will suffer from nerve pain, mental health disorders, impaired immune function and anemia.
Now that you know, you are able to help; help show once again that With Age Comes Respect.
