Over 50? Are You Getting Enough Vitamin B12?

The vitamin B family is essential to the function of your overall health, and once you hit your 50s the way your body B12 specifically changes.

Vitamin B12 is part of the B vitamin family that help support adrenal function, is vital for metabolic processes, and helps you maintain a healthy nervous system. It affects the development of red blood cells and nerve cells, and assists in the production of neurotransmitters, DNA, and RNA. B12 is also responsible for energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, and cardiovascular health.

Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiency

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Bleeding gums
  • Loss of appetite
  • Heart palpitations
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Anemia

These symptoms may come on slowly and be difficult to recognize initially. Most B12 is absorbed through meat and fish, so strict vegetarians and vegans need to be especially attentive. As you age you lose the ability to absorb B12 via the intestinal tract, so the elderly should be sure they are supplementing their diet.

That is medical speak to tell you that the body does not need to convert this form to become active. It’s one of the primary benefits of using a patch instead of a digestible form of vitamin. This is especially important to those who carry the genetic mutation MTHFR gene.
