Description Vitamin B12 is often overlooked as a key, missing factor when the body is dealing with fatigue, anemia, depression and developmental delay issues in children and dementia. The best way to rule out the possibility of a B12 deficiency (and to prevent one) is to use a sublingual, bio-active B12 supplement, formulated along with co-factors B6 and folate, also in their bio-active forms. Because B12, B6 and Folate play such a vital role in energy production and detoxification, results from one bottle will usually reveal whether you need more B12. Thus, it became clear that it is wise for everyone to be aware of their need for B12, regardless of their diet. And for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet, including The Hallelujah Diet, it is vital to use a B12 supplement, preferably one formulated with methylcobalamin, the active form of B12, not cyanocobalamin, which the body must convert before it can be used. Vegans and vegetarians are typically low in vitamin B12 because it is not found in plant foods. However, people who eat meat are often low in B12 as well. An article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2000 revealed that 39% of individuals tested had low-to-normal levels of B12 in their blood, and 17% had levels low enough to cause symptoms of deficiency. The most reliable source of B12 for people in this study was supplemental B12 from breakfast cereal. As we age, most of us do not absorb B12 efficiently from animal source foods, so supplements become the best source of dietary B12. HD Fall in love with food again. Feeling tired and run down?
