Just recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Ralph Green, M.D., Ph. D and Peter Shaw, M.D. in regards to B12 deficiency and a new oral option to manage B12 deficiency without the need for an injection. It was an eye opener for me to learn the need for B12 in our bodies and its necessary function for our body.

Here are some highlights from that interview:

One in five adults are vitamin B-12 deficient.

Most people do not recognize the symptoms or understand the risk of deficiency.

Those most at risk are people over the age of 60, pregnant women, people with gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s and celiac disease and those with diabetes who are taking metformin.

B12 plays a huge role in cellular function.

Blood requires B12 for the formation of new red blood cells and other cells.

B12 deficiency in the nervous system can cause symptoms of anemia, decrease in energy, thinning of the blood and tiredness. It can also lead to pins and needles feelings, tingling of the hands and feet, memory issues, concentration problems and also a dementia like state.

If caught early, complications can be avoided.

A new tablet is being introduced that can be taken just once a day—without the need for any accompanying injections.
