HEALTHY LIVING: VITAMIN B12


Vitamin B12Not too long ago, I wrote about vitamin D and how hugely deficient I am of that vitamin. Recently, I found out I’m deficient in vitamin B12, too (It really does all go downhill after 40). So, now I’m on a daily sublingual dose of B12 as well as vitamin D, and I found a really good multivitamin I’m taking for good measure.

Vitamin B12 helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA. It also helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak. I’m all about not being tired and weak.

Even though I’m taking a supplement, getting nutrients from natural sources is optimal.

Vitamin B12 is found naturally in foods like liver, clams, fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk and other dairy products. Some breakfast cereals, nutritional yeasts and other foods are fortified with vitamin B12.

I’d better go stock up.
