Dear Health Conscious Reader,
Unfortunately, many of us are familiar with the hallmark signs of aging: declining strength and energy, brain fog and "senior moments," irritability, difficulty sleeping, hearing and vision loss...the list goes on and on. Most people either accept these things as "just part of getting older," or take whatever drugs their doctors prescribe in the hopes of feeling better. But guess what? I have some shocking news to share with you. These are NOT normal signs of aging.
More often than not, there is a singular, easily remedied vitamin deficiency underlying many of these symptoms, making you feel older than you are! Yet tragically, it frequently goes undetected by doctors until it manifests as a severe neurological disorder, dementia, mental illness, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular disease, cancer...or worse.
What I'm talking about here is vitamin B12 deficiency, which sadly, affects nearly 50% of older adults. If you've experienced any of the symptoms I described above, it's imperative that you take action NOW before irreversible damage occurs. The good news is that B12 deficiency can be remedied easily, quickly and inexpensively. But don't run out and grab the first bottle of B12 you see - it's crucial that you take the right kind of B12.
My name is Joshua Corn and I am the Editor-in-Chief of Live in the Now, one of the fastest growing natural health publications in the nation. My passion for natural healing drives me to spread the word about simple, safe and effective health solutions that can dramatically improve your life. Please keep reading to learn more.
Vitamin B12 is essential to the very foundation of life itself - it's one of the building blocks your body uses to produce DNA. It also keeps your immune system functioning optimally, regulates mood and sleep cycles, and is crucial to energy production, which is why it's known as the "energy vitamin." It also protects your brain and nervous system by keeping nerves healthy and communicating in an optimal manner.[6,7] And emerging research is showing that B12 helps to lower levels of the stress hormone homocysteine,[8,9] making it a vital player in maintaining heart and brain health.
Cognitive decline is a serious concern for most of us as we get older. Sadly, the statistics are grim - if you live to be 80, your chances of suffering from severe loss of cognitive function are 1 in 2. The good news is that getting enough B12 can drastically cut your risk!
Scientists now understand that age-related cognitive decline is linked to a process in the body that involves a decrease in brain mass. That's right, your brain actually shrinks as you age! This reduction in brain mass is directly correlated with loss of memory and cognitive function seen in older individuals.
Emerging research is showing that being deficient in B12 puts your brain in serious danger, so if you care about your cognitive health, you better be sure that you're getting enough. Recently, a landmark study showed vitamin B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and declining cognitive scores in older individuals. Another study showed that older individuals with higher levels of B12 in their blood had less shrinkage of the brain than counterparts with lower levels. Those with higher B12 blood levels and increased brain size even scored higher on memory and cognitive tests!
Recent studies have shown that nearly 1 in 2 older adults have dangerously low levels of B12. The older you are, the higher your risk, but younger people aren't exempt from harm. In a shocking recent Tufts University study, researchers found that nearly 1 in 4 people over age 26 are at least borderline deficient in B12 and may already be experiencing symptoms as a result.
The worst part is that doctors typically misdiagnose B12 deficiency symptoms and then prescribe drugs that do nothing to address the problem, but instead, have plenty of side effects that only serve to make you feel worse! But you can avoid falling into that trap.
I learned about B12 deficiency the hard way. When I was a bit younger, I followed a vegetarian diet until I began experiencing some "mystery" symptoms that fit the description of a B12 deficiency. My doctor tried to prescribe me drugs, but luckily, I figured out what the problem was and to how fix it. It's long been known that vegetarians are at increased risk for B12 deficiency, since B12 is only found in red meat and a few other animal foods. But contrary to what some "experts" have said for years, it's not just vegetarians who are at risk.
The reason that the vast majority of people end up B12 deficient has nothing to do with their B12 intake, but rather, their ability to absorb B12 from food. As you get older, the lining of your stomach gradually loses its ability to produce hydrochloric acid, which you need to absorb B12 from food. The use of certain drugs can also lower your stomach acid secretion, further hampering B12 absorption. This is why with B12 supplements, a sublingual (under the tongue) delivery system - which ensures the B12 goes directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive tract - is absolutely essential.
The form of B12 that you'll find in most B12 products - even the B12 injections your doctor may administer - is cyanocobalamin. Can you guess how this form of B12 gets its name? Cyanocobalamin is comprised of a cyanide molecule attached to a cobalamin (B12) molecule. Cyanide is a toxic poison that the body cannot metabolize, and over time, it can accumulate in brain tissues with disastrous results.
For reasons I'll never fully understand, way too many B12 supplements on the market today are made with this virtually worthless form of B12. My guess is that these companies are just out to save money at the expense of your health, which is truly a shame.
What you want to take is a supplement made with the methylcobalamin form of B12, which research has shown to be the safest and most effective. Currently, most experts recommend taking a minimum of 1,000 mcg a day of sublingual methylcobalamin. Higher dosages of up to 15,000 mcg per day are sometimes required to bring levels back up to an optimal level and to restore energy, mental function and mood balance. B12 has no known drug interactions and has never shown any adverse or toxic effects in humans, even when given in very large doses.
In addition to my work with the Live in the Now newsletter, I own a company called Stop Aging Now, which has been making premium-grade dietary supplements for over 15 years. Working with my Scientific Advisory Board, I created a convenient vitamin B12 formula called MAX-B12™ that is simply superior to anything else out there, and it has become one of our best-selling products.
My goal in creating this formula was to offer a B12 product of superior quality at an amazingly affordable price, so that no one has to suffer the consequences of a B12 deficiency.
