Westcoast Naturals Vitamin B12 Tablets
Description & Features
This essential nutrient is required by our bodies to make nuclearic acids that make up genes; to produce energy from sugars and fats; to form red blood cells; and for normal growth of the nervous system. Vitamin B12 is found only in foods derived from animals.
Everyone needs Vitamin B12, but seniors and vegetarians are especially vulnerable to deficiency.
Minor B12 Deficiency
A minor deficiency can be indicated by impaired brain function, fatigue, numbness or pins and needles sensation in the toes, pale complexion, or male infertility.
Major B12 Deficiency
A major deficiency can cause severe nerve damage. An “early warning system” of nerve damage is the development of anemia or pernicious anemia. A high dose of a folic acid supplement will prevent anemia, but also masks this early warning system, therefore allowing permanent damage to the nervous system. Individual B12 levels should be checked by a physician prior to taking large doses of folic acid.
Direction: Take 1 tablet per day with a glass of water.
