B-12 DEFICIENCY 
MORE COMMON
THAN YOU THINK

Vitamin B-12 is needed to make red blood cells.   It is also needed for nerve health and plays a role in making DNA.  Main sources for B-12 are fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and fortified breakfast cereals. This is why all vegetarians and vegans are at risk but others also can be at risk.

This includes individuals:
· over 50
· taking non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications (aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve) 
· taking ant-acids
· receiving Warfarin
· with hypo-thyroidism, Chrohn’s disease or upper GI disease
· receiving chemo therapy
·after upper GI surgery or any major surgery with general anesthesia

Symptoms of B-12 deficiency include:
· Dizziness  
· Pale complexion
· Feeling numbness and tingly throughout the body
 fatigued or “mushy” muscles
· Forgetfulness
· Depression and anxiety
· Blurred, double vision or spotting in eyes
· Food is tasteless

If you are at risk, have your B-12 level checked during routine blood work or if you are experiencing any B-12 deficiency symptoms. It is easily treatable with B-12 supplementation. To avoid a deficiency, eat a well-balanced diet including high B-12 foods or take a B-12 supplement.  WHO (World Organization for Health) recommends 2.4 mcg daily.


Please eat and exercise responsibly.
