Facts About Vitamin B12
When we age our body tends to absorb less B12 vitamin from foods. Researchdemonstrates that 85% of us come up short of the needed vitamin from our
diet. In order to absorb B12 from our stomachs, our body requires a substance called intrinsic factor. The production of intrinsic factor decreases with age.
Research has also demonstrated that people no longer have intrinsic factor after the age of 70. People that have anemia or chronic fatigue require regular injections of Vitamin B12 because the oral form is not as reliable.
B12 is important for the nervous system. It helps produce myelin which insulates nerves and is critical for a proper functioning nervous system.
