Vitamin B12 deficiency


The most amazing thing about the aloe vera plant is that besides over 200 different substances, which provide a healthy supplement to our diet, this plant contains vitamin B12!
This is pretty unique in the flora world. Only some edible sea algae also contain this vitamin. People who have a normal diet obtain B12 by eating meat. This is not the case for vegans and vegetarians who should supplement their diet with B12 injections.

Vitamin B12 deficiency in the general population is more prevalent than we think. People need B12 to produce red blood cells and to have a strong nervous system. It is hard to say how many cases of vitamin B12 deficiency have been reported in general population but some sources say between 5% – 20%. These are usually alcoholics! Alcohol depletes the body of B12 (students and people who like their wine take note!).
Symptoms of B12 deficiency include weakness, tiredness, easy bruising, stomach upset or weight loss. And pernicious anemia is one of the most common causes of B12 lacking in your diet.

This is another reason to have an aloe vera drink!

    efficiency and significantly develop memory. All of the major diseases of aging, as well as the epidemic of
    brain disorders, including mood problems, are directly associated with this change

    could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send
