For more on the Vitamin B12 deficiency, you can check out my article:
In this video, I’m going to talk about how to overcome Vitamin B12 deficiency and the health benefits of Vitamin B12. Surprisingly, about 40% of the population is deficient. Some of the big warning signs that show you are Vitamin B12 deficient are if you struggle with low energy, fatigue, lack focus, poor memory, poor cellular function, autoimmune disease, anemia, or thyroid condition.
The biggest reason most people have Vitamin B12 deficiency is because they don’t have a healthy digestive system to digest this vitamin properly, also known as leaky gut. If you can’t absorb nutrients and vitamins properly, then you won’t be able to absorb the vitamins you need for optimal health. People who struggle with leaky gut or digestive issues, vegans or vegetarians, and people who don’t’ have enough probiotics in their diet all tend to have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Some of the benefits of Vitamin B12 include red blood cell formation, which is vital to heart health, cellular function, and supporting the brain and nerve system.
If you want to overcome Vitamin B12 deficiency, then you must follow these specific steps:
1. Consume more Vitamin B12-rich foods (liver, wild caught fish, grass-fed lamb and beef, and raw dairy products)
2. Probiotic (increases absorption)
3. Heal your gut (getting inflammatory foods out of your diet)
4. Supplementation (VitaminB12, B complex, desiccated liver supplement)
If you can follow these steps, you will notice improvements immediately and overcome your Vitamin B12 deficiency.
