Sources and Treating Deficiencies
Vitamin B12 is necessary to produce an adequate amount of healthy red blood cells in the bone marrow. Vitamin B12 is available only in animal foods (meat and dairy products) or yeast extracts (such as brewer’s yeast). Vitamin B12 deficiency is defined by low levels of stored B12 in the body that can result in anemia, a lower than normal number of red blood cells, which leads to soreness, and weakness in the arms and legs.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it easily dissolves in water and is not stored in the body. All Vitamin B12 in the body is eliminated through the urine, typically between 24 and 72 hours depending on how active a person is and the amount of fluids they take in. Due to the rapid rate with which the body processes Vitamin B12 frequent supplementation is needed to address deficiencies and gain maximum benefits.
The stomach acids that aid in the natural breakdown of food also break down oral Vitamin B12 supplements. The body will only absorb a small amount of the actual B12 from a pill. Injections provide a direct method of supplying your body with the Vitamin B12.
The body’s ability to absorb Vitamin B12 is reduced with increasing age. Older people are often detected to have a more potent Vitamin B12 deficiency, even in cases where they do not suffer from pernicious anemia. Moreover, an intake of vitamin B12 from food sources decreases with an increase in age, probably because of a lack of stomach acid. The conventional way of fixing a Vitamin B12 deficiency has been through intramuscular injections. Experiments also reveal that Vitamin B12 intramuscular injections are useful healers of neurological disorders such as progressive memory loss and lethargy.

Are you 50 or older? Have you had chicken pox?
Shingles is a painful localized skin rash often with blisters that is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has had chickenpox can develop shingles because VZV remains in the nerve cells of the body after the chickenpox infection clears and VZV can reappear years later causing shingles. Shingles most commonly occurs in people 50 years old or older, people who have medical conditions that keep the immune system from working properly, or people who receive immunosuppressive drugs.
