Vitamin B

We do need vitamins – vital amines … vital to life – we can not make these and have to eat/ingest substances either with these in them, or have co-factors that allow us to digest them.

Told that you have MTHFR?
Trouble conceiving?

Need all the B’s together ..
B1 – Watch here

 

B 5 pantothenic acid

MTHFR and folicinic acid . .

It may well be that seeing a good naturopath not a doctor who is trained in drug therapy will mean that your entire body – not just the bits that bother you – will be scrutinized and restored holistically.

Who is at risk of B12 deficiency?

The most frequent cause of B12 deficiency is malabsorption, which may be caused by low stomach acid, a lack of intrinsic factor and/or suboptimal pancreatic, small intestinal or liver function. Those most at risk include:

  • Those who have adopted a vegetarian, vegan or macrobiotic lifestyle
  • The elderly and people with eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia
  • Those taking certain medications, including laxatives, antacids and metformin, or those who have been exposed to nitrous oxide (oxidises B12 – can’t use it in the body – acute neurologic dysfunction – for all those who react with paralysis with GA)
  • Pregnant and nursing mothers
  • The offspring of those already deficient
  • Heavy drinkers and smokers
  • Those with high homocysteine
  • Those with gastrotintestinal disorders, including autism, or those who have had gastric surgery
  • Those taking high doses of folic acid
  • Those with autoimmune disorders

DO NOT USE FOLIC ACID BY ITSELF. . .

How do we get B12? Unfortunately for all vegetarians – from meat.

Perhaps watch here then go onto the nearly one hour clip to really see how widespread and how dangerous it is to NOT pay attention to this and other vital ingredients of life.

Gluten damaged intestinal lining – and B vitamins no longer synthesized there.
