HOW TO Best Absorb Vitamin B-12 Supplements
We all know that B vitamins are important for our general health but how can we maximize their absorption to ensure their effectiveness?
Vitamin B-12 naturally occurs only in animal product, such as liver, beef, herring, mackerel, milk products, eggs and sardines.
Vegans can get vitamin B-12 by taking supplements; eating or drinking fortified products, or adding certain yeast products to their diets. Mild deficiencies of vitamin B-12 are fairly common, and are caused by inadequate intake, disease or a lack of the intrinsic factor. Common symptoms are fatigue and forgetfulness. Severe deficiencies can lead to permanent nerve damage and a condition known as pernicious anemia, which will be covered later in this article.
Certain lifestyle choices or
genetic conditions may either
deplete or enhance the levels
of B-12 in your system.
If you smoke you will need to increase your supplemental vitamin B-12 because tobacco decreases its potency. You should also check your medications because certain drugs, such as cholestyramine, colchicines, and neomycin (oral form only) will also reduce absorption.
