Vitamin B12 is an essential growth factor and plays a vital role in the metabolism of all cells, especially those of the gastrointestinal tract and bone marrow. This vital nutrient is also essential for the overall health of the entire nervous system.*
There are certain conditions that can promote B12 deficiency, even when there is adequate dietary intake of the nutrient. Vegan vegetarians who do not consume animal source foods are prime candidates for supplemental B12. Many people find they have much more energy when they take proper amounts and high-dose oral supplementation in the range of 1000-2500 mcg. This dosage has been found to bypass the intrinsic factor.Folic Acid works closely with vitamin B12 and is necessary for the production of red blood cells and the metabolism of amino acids and proteins. It is vital to healthy cell division, replication and tissue growth. Folic Acid assists to regulate neural development and is highly recommended during pregnancy.*
Symptoms of folic acid deficiency include megaloblastic anemia, birth defects, cervical dysplasia, elevated homocysteine, headache, fatigue, hair loss, anorexia, insomnia, diarrhea, and increased infections.*
A recommended approach is to take Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid in combination.
