Vitamin B-12 Test

Dr. Oz did an interesting segment on Vitamin B-12 and how many people (from 15% to 40%) have a deficiency in this vitamin. Some of the symptoms are:

1. Lack of energy.

2. Unusual mood changes.

3. Difficulty concentrating or remember things.

4. Tingling or numbness in hands or feet.

5. Has your tongue become inflamed?

What can cause a deficiency?
Aspirin, proton pump inhibitors(acid reducers), Metformin, aging(over 50) .

Here’s the link for the show.

Costco has timed- release pill I’m going to try out. I don’t think I’m deficient, but I can always use more energy.

  1. Great post; another deficient nutrient, in most humans, is magnesium. When I read that, I started looking up foods that contain a lot of that nutrient in them….oatmeal was one of the highest. That helped me with my nervous, anxious behavior I go through, from time to time. Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))
