When previously talking about gluten symptoms in the previous article here, we can also talk more about vitamin B deficiency. How is it connected to gluten? Well, gluten causes gut damage that later leads to a higher risk of vitamin B deficiency. Vitamin B function is also important in the body, but people often
Problems that vitamin B deficiency can cause:
· Heart disease
· Brain fog
· Liver damage
· Energy loss (read more about how to stay energetic here,
· Bone loss etc.
It is important for people to understand that B Vitamin deficiencies are serious as they can ruin health. I have seen more and more people come to my practice and say that they felt a lack of energy no matter what they do and it makes them hard to make the daily tasks. People with energy problems also have big issues with mood swings, sleep (read about how important sleep is here), exercising, libido, ability to maintain healthy and worthwhile relationships, and the list goes on.
There are three main B vitamins: B12, B9, and B6. They all take care of chemical called homocysteine. It on its own is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s, diabetes, bone loss, and other health issues (vitamin B deficiency diseases list). A lab test analyzes the level of homocysteine to understand whether a person has B vitamin deficiency.
Gluten is the most common reason why people have exactly vitamin B12 deficiency as it damages the specific sells that are responsible for its absorption. Vitamin B12 foods are mostly animal foods. Vegetarians and vegans are under higher risk of having this vitamin deficiency. It is important to talk with the doctor as a vitamin B12 supplement might be a necessary addition. Also, Nutrition & More offers a supplement for nutritional support, immune system support. It can also help to boost energy detoxification and energy production together with other changes in the lifestyle choices. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause depression, fatigue, and anemia (shortness of breath). They are often symptoms of a lack of this vitamin that many people cannot imagine that being the real reason behind these illnesses. Another signal for B12 deficiency can be nerve damage that is visible as tingling, burning, and other unpleasant sensations, especially in feet. A part of vitamin B foods is algae and yeast, but that cannot always help. Vitamin B12 deficiency treatment can take time, so it is important to stay devoted and have patience. In case of inflammation and genetic problems, it is even harder to keep balanced levels of vitamins. Appropriate measurements of vitamin B levels can help to understand the situation and act appropriately.
