Struggling? Maybe You’re Missing B12

January 7, 2019

It’s almost a week after the new year, and if you feel that you’re struggling, maybe you’re missing Vitamin B12. Starting a new exercise routine can be difficult, but if you’re exhausted after even a short amount of exercise, it might be Vitamin B12 deficiency. A new diet may be just the thing, but if you have no appetite, your mouth is funny/sore, you have headaches and are tired… it might be B12 deficiency. Don’t let missing an essential nutrient mess you’re resolutions up, get support from Cardio CVS Complete.

Vitamin B12 is important for cell metabolism (which is why missing it will zap your energy), and in addition to its other roles throughout the body, it’s also important to the nervous system and red blood cell development. Animals are the biggest dietary source of Vitamin B 12 (salmon, meat, cheese…).

Who’s most at risk for not having enough Vitamin B12? Although there might be others, two groups at high risk for Vitamin B12 deficiency are vegans (who don’t eat the main sources of Vitamin B12) and others on special diets (like those who can’t or don’t eat dairy), and people whose gastrointestinal tracts don’t function optimally, which could mean people with inflammatory diseases (Crohn’s, IBS, etc.), or even just seniors (our bodies don’t function as well with age).

Fortunately, supplements can offer vegan sources of Vitamin B12 that are easily digested (also called having bioavailable nutrients) so that the body can more easily absorb and use the nutrients. Just make sure you choose a high quality supplement like Cardio CVS Complete.
