Methylcobalamin- The Preferred Vitamin B-12

  Methylcobalamin- The preferred Vitamin B-12

Here are the Symptoms to  help find if you could benefit from taking the active form of  Vitamin B-12

Vitamin B12,  is vital for your future brain health, new research continues to prove the importance of this vitamin in keeping your mind sharp as you age.
According to the latest research, people with low vitamin B12 , considered an anemia affecting your blood, not just a deficiency, were more likely to score lower on cognitive tests, as well as having a lighter and smaller brain, which suggests a lack of the vitamin may lead to brain shrinkage.

This is of paramount importance for many of you for two reasons:
  1. Vitamin B12 deficiency is very widespread
  1. Your blood level of vitamin B12 is not an adequate marker of whether or not you're deficient, making vitamin B12 deficiency easy to miss


 B12 contains methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) and folic acid.    Most  other vitamin B12 supplements contain cyanocobalamin; however, the liver must first "detoxify" the cyanide molecule.


A deficiency of vitamin B-12 can lead to vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia.  A mild deficiency may cause many symptoms. 

 But as the anemia worsens it may causes symptoms such as:
A sore tongue means you could be deficient in B-12  folic acid, zinc, or iron
weakness, tiredness or light-headedness
rapid heartbeat and breathing
pale skin
sore tongue
easy bruising or bleeding, including bleeding gums
stomach upset and weight loss
diarrhea or constipation
The Brain and the Immune System both require enough B-12 to function. Low White Blood cells are supported with B-12


If the deficiency is not corrected, it can damage the nerve cells. If this happens,         vitamin B-12 deficiency effects may include:
tingling or numbness in fingers and toes
difficulty walking
mood changes or depression
memory loss, disorientation, and dementia

Methyl -SP can help adults with this condition along with  B-12 shots.

B-12 deficiency in infants and Mothers Can Be Spotted

if not detected and treated, can lead to severe and permanent damage to the nervous system. 

New mothers who follow a vegetarian diet should have their babies' B-12 levels checked by a doctor. 

Homocysteine is a blood test that may reveal low B-12 and an increases in risk for heart disease and stroke many years before they occur. Levels above 7 increase brain risk, above 15 Heart Attack risk. MethylMalonic acid is the most accurate way to test for B-12 levels.


What are the other anemia symptoms?

People with anemia typically feel tired and weak. In addition, they may experience symptoms such as:

Shortness of breath
Dizziness
Chest or abdominal pain
Headaches
Cold or numb hands and/or feet
Low body temperature
Pale skin
Irritability
Black, tarry, or bloody stools (from blood loss)
Weight loss
Rapid or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)

 B-12 Max (Methylcobalamin) by Apex Energetics is a raspberry flavor liquid vitamin B-12 supplement. It is especially beneficial for people who are unable to absorb B12 from food or don't get enough because of a vegetarian diet, for example.

 A typical pattern is macrocytic anemia meaning the blood cells get large but don't have adequate quantities of hemoglobin.

 One common symptom is fatigue. We also recommend anyone having any brain issue to take this Vitamin B12 for the methyl donors inherent in the vitamin that your brain needs to make neurotransmitters.
