Get Vitamin B-12 for proper red blood cell formation

Vitamin B-12 exists in several forms and contains the mineral cobalt, therefore it is also called cobalamin. A water-soluble vitamin, Vitamin B-12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and the formation of red blood cells in your body. Naturally bound to protein in foods, Vitamin B-12 is released by the activity of hydrochloric acid and gastric protease in the stomach. This process is eliminated when a synthetic Vitamin B-12 is consumed.

How does Vitamin B-12 work?

Free Vitamin B12 then combines with intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein secreted by the stomach's parietal cells, and the resulting complex undergoes absorption within the distal ileum by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Click here to learn more about the importance of Vitamin B-12 and here to how to optimally consume it.

Vitamin B-12 has been used to treat pernicious anaemia, a serious type of anaemia that is due to vitamin B-12 deficiency, found mostly in older people. It is also used to treat memory loss; Alzheimer’s disease; improve mood, energy, concentration and the immune system. It is also used for heart disease, diabetes, depression, mental disorders and AIDS patients. Look at iprice’s offering on Vitamin B-12 supplements now!

Clinicians Vitamin B12 Oral Drops provide the methylcobalamin form of Vitamin B12. Each drop supplies 50mcg of Vitamin B12.Cyanacobalamin is the most commonly supplemented form of Vitamin B12. It is usually supplemented orally or as an intramuscular injection. However, nutritional problems, enzyme defects and pathological changes to tissues can all impact on the way in which cyanacobalamin is processed in the body. Oral forms of Vitamin B12 supplements have been shown to be as effective as injection forms, as the cobalamin is absorbed through the mucosal lining of the mouth. Evidence indicates that Vitamin B12 from methycobalamin is utilised more efficiently than any other form of Vitamin B12.Methycobalamin has also been shown to stay in tissue longer than other forms of Vitamin B12. Signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency include: numbness, a sensation of pins and needles, a burning sensation in the feet and sometimes diarrhoea.

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and hypotheses. Recently, the breath-taking pace of development in research technologies has changed our understanding for the role of nutrients and the complex interaction between diet, environment and diseases. Conditions like aging, diet and drugs increase the risk of developing cobalamin deficiency, probably because of diminished ability to liberate, absorb or distribute the food-derived vitamin. From a basic science point of view, understanding of the transport and function of the vitamin, may pave the road for using this system for drug delivery. This book represents up-to-date literature on the discoveries and developments in the field of cobalamin. It includes multifaceted aspects of the vitamin in health and disease conditions. The book has been written by leading scientists who have significant contributions in this field and represents therefore, a timely unique encyclopaedia on cobalamin.

If so, then you/they are in danger of suffering the effects of a serious vitamin B12 deficiency. These "effects" can take various forms such as anemia where you feel tired all the time and that your strength has absolutely vanished to real neurological damage as in newborn babies of strict vegan mothers to mental disorders in the elderly mimicking Alzheimer's disease. Without proper testing, even doctors can be fooled into providing inaccurate diagnoses. Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies is written in straight-forward, easy-to-understand language so anyone with an interest in the subject matter can quickly grasp the concepts. However, self-diagnosis and treatment is highly discouraged. To peek inside the book and read the first few pages, scroll up the page and click on the book's cover (different excerpt below). You'll get a sense of the writing style and be able to decide if it's for you. To purchase, click the purchase button on the upper right. Excerpt from Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies:. Vitamin B12 Deficiency: Neurological SymptomsOne of the most important functions of vitamin B12 in the body is helping to form the protective coating, called the myelin sheath (i.e. Schwann cells), around the nerves. They make the nerve fiber in the peripheral nervous system (Pns) look like a string of pearls. Schwann cells are one of two supporting cells in the Pns. The other is called a satellite cell and surrounds cell bodies within the ganglia (cell bodies that lie along the nerves in the Pns). It is believed that both types of supporting cells provide insulation for the electrical current that flows through the nerves, but their function is still largely unknown. When vitamin B12 is deficient, this protective covering does not develop properly. One o

Vitamin B12 Deficiency and Chronic Illness
RM 31.40
Kobo
Vitamin B12 Deficiency is now being revealed as one of the most misunderstood conditions of the 21st century. The potential for it to result in permanent nerve damage and varying levels of disability irrespective of the amount of B12 replaced in the blood is slowly being recognized by modern clinicians. Yet this is knowledge which is not emerging, but re-emerging, because physicians who dealt with this illness a century ago were well aware of the long-term implications. They were also aware of an underlying cause - low stomach acid. In addition, they understood that patients suffering from the condition would also have stomach atrophy, gut dysbiosis and intestinal permeability - in themselves conditions which could give rise to further ailments relating to mental health issues, autoimmune conditions and a broad range of what we today recognize as chronic diseases. Yet for decades these issues, once well recognized, have been forgotten, and patients of the 21st century are often given advice and treatment which fails to combat not only the injuries caused by a deficiency of Vitamin B12, but which may well be misinterpreted as other, often untreatable conditions, or, as is possibly the case, that the underlying cause of the B12 deficiency may also be the cause of other illnesses. This book aims to pave the way in setting the record straight. It aims to help both patients and clinicians to deepen their understanding in respect of a condition which was once feared and which, it would seem, still exists but is simply not recognized for what it is. It also aims to explain to those with other chronic and neurological conditions that a deficiency of B12 might prove to be a cause of at least some of their symptoms, and that the cause of any deficiency, even outside of B12 may well be impacting their health. Chapters include information on: Subacute Degeneration of the Spinal Cord, Symptoms, Dysaesthesia, Paraesthesia or Polyneuropathy, Restricted Diets and Assumptions, Low Stom

Vitamin B12, feeding your body with nutrients that it needs

One thing that the doctor would recommend you to take even though you are as healthy as a horse are vitamins. These vitamins are packed with essential nutrients that your body needs in order to work properly. Some of the famous vitamins include Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and also Vitamin K. Some are water soluble which are needed more frequently as they do not stay in the body while the others best friends with water. Not all vitamins are found in the racks of your local drug store as some can be in your food – fruits, vegetables, potatoes, grains, milk and dairy products. With that being said, the vitamin that we will be discussing today is Vitamin B12, a family member of Vitamin B.

Vitamin B12, what is it?

Vitamin B12, as the name indicates, is a part of the Vitamin B complex and just like the other Vitamin B, this particular vitamin is directly involved in energy metabolism and other related biological processes. However, this is where their ties end.

  • Vitamin B12 can be stored in your body while most of the other vitamin B do not.
  • Other than Vitamin B12, all the other Vitamin B are easily absorbed into your body.
  • Vitamin B12 has the lowest daily requirement compared to all the other Vitamin B.
  • Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin to contain a metal element (cobalt).

Vitamin B12 helps keep your body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and makes up the DNA, the genetic material found in all your cells. The amount of this particular vitamin that you need in your body depends on your age.

  • Birth to 6 Months – 0.4 mcg
  • 7 to 12 months – 0.5 mcg
  • 1-3 years old – 0.9 mcg
  • 4-8 years old – 1.2 mcg
  • 9-13 years old – 1.8 mcg
  • 14-18 years old – 2.4 mcg
  • Adults – 2.4 mcg
  • Pregnant teens and women – 2.6 mcg
  • Breastfeeding teens and women – 2.8 mcg

Getting your Vitamin B12 supplies

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in a wide variety of animal food and is added to some fortified foods. You can get the dose that you need by eating a variety of food which includes:

  • Beef liver and clams
  • Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and other dairy products
  • Certain cereals, nutritional yeasts and other food products that are fortified with vitamins B12.

You can also get your dose of Vitamin B12 from your dietary supplements as it can be found in almost all multivitamins. If you are not sure, you can always check the supplement facts label to determine the amount of B12 that is provided.

The importance of Vitamin B12

When your body lacks vitamin B12, you might suffer from

  • Anemia (having less red blood cells compared to the normal number)
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Energy deficiency
  • Pins and needles (paraesthesia)
  • Heart palpitations and shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Red and sore tongue
  • Constipation and loss of appetite
  • Vision loss
  • Mental problem like depression, memory loss or drastic behavioural change.

If you think that these symptoms are visible on your or your loved ones, its best to consult your doctor for the right procedures and treatments.

To prevent deficiency of Vitamin B12, you can now get your recommended dose exclusively from iprice.
