Vitamin B-12: I'm Deficient, and So Are YOU!

This is not only for Vegans and Vegetarians. This is for everyone, meat eaters and all. I have just recently learned that the Vitamin B-12 is a very necessary vitamin for everyone, but we're barely getting it, if any at all.  The Standard American Diet (a.k.a. SAD), is not nutrient dense, at all. Most people are heating things in a microwave, which gets rid of anything that would be of value to people's bodies. I don't want to go into everything wrong with SAD, but I do want to talk about Vitamin B-12.

Vitamin B-12 is a necessary vitamin, just like protein and good fats are necessary. The thing is, barely anything that people eat is rich in B-12. Lets go over the things that have B-12 in them:

Fortified Cereals
Red Meat
Fortified Soy
Swiss Cheese

You're probably thinking. Okay, I eat a lot of those foods, so why am I deficient? Well, the things about these foods is that, most of them, you have to cook. Therefore, most to all of the nutrients are depleted. The dairy foods on this list have most likely been pasteurized, if bought at the grocery store, and therefore have little to no nutrients, except fat. And then we come to the fortified cereals and fortified soy. Fortified means they add the nutrients back into what was depleted when they cooked, pasteurized, bleached, etc. Fortified nutrients are hard for your body to absorb, and you may not absorb any of it, and therefore have wasted your money and time, but think you're getting nutrients, and wondering why you're feeling sick, losing your memory, feeling tired all the time, etc.

The truth is, most of the US population is deficient in Vitamin B-12, and doctors aren't acknowledging it as a problem. Now, I will say, Doctors are not being taught enough about preventing diseases, or vitamin deficiencies. I'm not trying to knock doctors' knowledge on things, but there are so many people being misdiagnosed! There is a book I recommend reading. It's called Could It Be B12? The book is by Sally M. Pacholok and Jeffrey J. Stuart. They have both worked in the medical field, and in hospitals, and have seen so many patients come through with a simple vitamin B-12 deficiency, but end up getting prescribed medicines, and end up dying because they're not being treated properly.

You need to have a supplement of Vitamin B-12, and the best one is probably found on globalhealingcenter.com.The best thing about this site, is if you buy something, and then leave a video review, you get a $100 store credit!

I hope this was helpful and informative! If you would like a direct link to the best B-12 supplement, please click here.
