Warning Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency and How to Correct It

Warning Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency and How to Correct It | Holistic Nutrition Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

 gettiWarning Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency and How to Correct It - This vitamin is dubbed the energy vitamin and its shortage can result in an array of health problems, including some potentially very serious conditions.


Via Sandi Cornez, Demarcio Washington, askdrmaxwell
Ellen Naylor's insight:

Vitamin B12 deficiency is more common for vegetarians and vegans. However, above the age of 50, we are all more at risk since we don't absorb as much nutrition from what we eat. Meat, dairy, fish and eggs, tempeh, spirulena, seaweeds and blue algae are all great sources of B12.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, June 30, 1:20 PM

B-12, one of the B complex vitamins is an essential anti-fatigue vitamin because its function is essential to energy production. from cell formation, to helping produce adrenal hormones.  B-12 works with folic acid to control the production of oxygen-carrying red blood cells and keeps your nervous system healthy by helping your body use iron.

 

Vegetarians and vegans who don't eat animal products are at risk of being B-12 deficient as are some people who do eat animal products and don't get enough of the B-12 as they may not be able to absorb it. For people in these categories and for people over 50 it's recommended to take a B-12 supplement and/or take a B complex every day which will cover your B requirements.

 

Foods that contain B-12 - animal products, seafood, and spirulina (blue-green algae which is a high protein superfood), and nutritional yeast (high in B complex)

Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014

Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014 | Holistic Nutrition Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

"Oh how the times are changing fast in our perception of nutrition. While our culture has been deeply embedded in fat-phobia for over three decades, it now seems that the tide is turning in favor of looking at dietary fat as a good thing."

 

My latest evidence–the June 23, 2014 front cover of Time magazine boldly proclaiming “Eat Butter. Scientists labeled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong” by Senior Editor and enviro-writer Bryan Walsh. This is a stark juxtaposition to the infamous front cover with the bacon and eggs shamed in a frown face that ran back on March 26, 1984 telling us about the “bad news” regarding fat on our cholesterol and health. And because this was Time magazine, it got some attention on mainstream television when media darling registered dietitian Joy Bauer offered up her analysis of this story on the TODAY show with Matt Lauer, Al Roker and the gang on set listening to this positive coverage about saturated fat being HEALTHY! Unbelievably amazing!

OK butter has gotten a bad rap all these years, but it's actually the bread and starchy carbs that many people put it on, that are the problem. Interesting.
