so today we’re going to talk about why b12 is not being absorbed in your body unless you’re a vegan you’re getting enough from the diet okay but the problem is usually the absorption not from the diet here are a few symptoms that a person can experience if their b12 deficient depression paranoia delusional dementia memory loss pins and needles or numbness in your hands and your feet or any part of the body anemia swollen tongue red tongue fatigue weakness and tremors and there’s a lot of other ones as well so b12 is one of the only B vitamins that could be stored in the body so it can be stored for several years so let’s talk about the barrier of absorption b12 is attached to a mineral okay cobalt in its protein bound so to break this up you need a very strong protein enzyme called pepsin which happens to be triggered by acid in your stomach in order to activate pepsin you need pH between one two three that’s extremely acid so if you’re taking any acids for example that could be a definite reason why you’re deficient in b12 here are some other reasons you could have a condition called atrophic gastritis and that’s a situation where the stomach is inflamed and the stomach lining is breaking down maybe from years of consuming bad foods or junk foods or whatever because as soon as you destroy the lining of the stomach you can’t make this acid anymore gastric bypass okay that’s another way that it can disrupt the stomach lining affecting the not just the acid but the release of enzymes as well celiac okay now that’s a problem in the small intestine what happens is that b12 is normally broken down in the stomach and then absorbed in the small intestine but if the lining of the small intestine is damaged whether you have celiac or Crohn’s or IBS that could be the reason why it’s not going in okay and this is another common reason right here you just don’t have enough stomach acid so many people have this problem what the top symptom that the experienced acid reflux why because the valve at the top of the stomach doesn’t close unless this pH is very very acidic okay so there’s a sensor in this valve and then the acid starts splashing back up and you get GERD or acid reflux and you think oh wow I need an anti acid okay well that just takes the stomach acid out and the problem gets worse and worse and worse so it’s a real easy solution what you do is you take this version of b12 methyl cobalamin okay in thousands of micrograms so I would suggest maybe 2,000 or maybe 3,000 micrograms of b12 this version right here and you will see a great improvement in these symptoms right here and then don’t forget to acidify the stomach with either betaine how to chloride or apple cider vinegar or a combination to both and you can get them in pills as well now there’s one last thing let’s say for example you have these symptoms or some of them and you take the b12 and you still don’t see change there’s one more thing it’s called the intrinsic factor that’s made by your stomach this is a factor that helps the absorption of b12 okay and if you have damage in your stomach it’s very very difficult to absorb b12 because you just don’t have the intrinsic factor there is a product that I know about I don’t sell it okay you can do a search on it it’s called site Pam it has the intrinsic factor in this product if the natural product it’s from standard process I used to use it when I was in practice but if you do a search on Saipan okay and you start taking this it also has obtained how to Cora to help acidify the stomach that can help the absorption of b12 as well all right guys thanks for watching so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to subscribed
