Feeling run down, moody, forgetful and unable to focus?
You might not be getting enough B-12.
B-12 is an essential vitamin for the production of red blood cells and research shows it is one of the leading nutrient deficiencies in the world, including the United States.
Estimates of deficiency in the U.S. are between 1.5% and 39% depending on who is doing the research. Since animal foods and dairy products are the only sources of Vitamin B-12, those who follow a vegan diet are most likely to have a deficiency.
B-12 Deficiency In Older Adults:
It is estimated that people over 60 have a 15% chance of being deficient.B-12 is processed by acids and enzymes in the stomach and small intestine. As people age, their ability to absorb Vitamin B-12 tends to decrease because they have less acids and enzymes. The symptoms of B-12 deficiency such as fatigue, anemia, neuropathy and memory problems are common with other diseases so people don't always recognize the symptoms as a B-12 deficiency.
