It’s likely most of us are fighting against some degree of inflammation and could benefit by turning our attention to it and making a decided effort to reduce it. But where to begin? The secret to reducing inflammation is to stop it from as many sources as possible.

Are You B12 Deficient?

October 8, 2018

B12 is one of the harder vitamins to get. If you have a limited diet, especially if you’re vegan, you’re more likely to be Vitamin B12 deficient. Like most deficiencies, it’s easy for it to go undiagnosed. The recommended daily guidelines really only cover extreme deficiency—but a mild or moderate vitamin deficiency can also cause symptoms and disrupt your life.

What are vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms? Like other vitamins, fatigue and mental fog are symptoms. More unique to vitamin B12 are a sore tongue, and a single, twitchy eye. Symptoms come on slowly enough that most people adjust before they complain, and only see a doctor if symptoms get worse.

Don’t live with a mild deficiency. Make sure you’re at your best and feeling good by covering your bases with a multivitamin. Get all your B vitamins with CoEnZyme B-Complex. Read more about B Vitamins…

But recent outbreaks and research has turned up some other sources of antibiotic resistance. Read more about antibiotic resistance…
