Fatigue, Irritability, Depression,
It's Not You... it's a Vitamin B12 Deficiency
A vitamin B12 deficiency is caused by an inadequate dietary intake or impaired absorption. Most people only experience milder symptoms such as fatigue, irritability and depression. However, these symptoms can lead to more severe long-term problems such as stroke, heart disease, severe neurological dysfunctions and an increased risk of Alzheimer's Disease.Blood levels of B-12 decline with age and your ability to absorb the vitamin through your digestive system diminishes after age 40.
42% of adults 65 years of age and older are lacking sufficient levels of B-12 required for prime cognitive function, cardiac health, energy levels, proper neurological function and mental and emotional well-being.
Most people don't even know if they have a vitamin b12 deficiency, and if left untreated, it can lead to serious consequences.
I had no idea that I was deficient in vitamin b12 nor did I realize that B vitamins were essential to healthy living.

Do You Take Prescription Medications?
Hundreds of prescription drugs impact your ability to absorb vitamins from the foods you eat. If you are taking prescription medications, ensure you get the B Vitamins you need to get and stay healthy by eating a diet rich in whole foods combined with a sublingual B Vitamin supplement.
Other medications that directly interfere with B-12 absorption are antacids of all kinds, antibiotic medications, laxatives, antihistamine medications and helicobacter infections also reduce your chances of getting adequate vitamin B-12 into your system.
