Description: These are all common symptoms of a Vitamin B12 deficiency. This is shockingly wide-spread, with studies estimating that up to 40% of the population may be clinically deficient in Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 plays a crucial role in the brain, the nervous system, the production of red blood cells, the production of DNA and it is literally involved in the metabolism of every cell in the human body. As you can see, this micronutrient is vital to good health. Good dietary sources of Vitamin B12 include shellfish, liver, red meat,eggs and dairy products. Unfortunately, due to the large structure of this vitamin (the largest of all known vitamins), it doesn’t always absorb well through the digestive system. Various common digestive imbalances will also result in poor nutrient absorption. This means that even those of us who eat a diet rich in the above mentioned foods and take Vitamin B12 supplements can still be deficient. So, what is the solution? First you should try to establish if there is indeed a deficiency present. Live blood analysis has been shown to accurately detect vitamin B12 deficiencies, by assessing red blood cell size and hypersegmentation of the neutrophils. Since we have already established that Vitamin B12 can be difficult to digest, it would seem inconsistent to now recommend an oral supplementation. So this is where the trans-dermal Vitamin B12 patch comes in. Locally produced by NeoGenesis Health and easy to use. You simply apply 1 patch directly onto the skin for 24 hours, twice weekly to receive 100% of your B12 & Folic Acid requirements. It offers the following advantages over oral supplementation: Virtually immediate absorption Sustained release over 24 hours with minimal elimination Bypasses the digestive tract ensuring maximum dosage delivery Contains the natural form of Vitamin B12, Methylcobalamin, which is far superior to the synthetic cyanocobalamin found in most supplements. Vitamin B12 supplementation is very safe with virtually no known side effects, so if in doubt, get the patch!
