I'm Jackie Arnett and this is vitamin B-12 and nerve reflexes. A low blood level of vitamin B-12 is actually still possible in today's modern diet and it can damage nerves. A short term vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to loss of sensation in your hands and feet, weakness in the muscle and difficulty walking. A long term vitamin B-12 deficiency can permanently damage the brain and central nervous system. So, you're probably wondering how do I make sure I'm getting my vitamin B-12 that I need? Well, vitamin B-12 can only be found in animal products naturally and in nutritional yeast. And it can only be manufactured by bacteria. However there are many synthetic forms of vitamin B-12 and you can find them in rich grains such as cereal and other bread options out there. A great way to incorporate vitamin B-12 is to incorporate quality animal products in your everyday eating. Fish, liver, my favorite is eggs, they're quick, they're easy and they're really good. Another way is to add enriched grains. Make sure your cereal isn't enriched and the different whole grain bread options you choose should also be enriched as well. And as always, you could consult with your doctor or dietitian, if a vitamin B-12 supplement is right for you. It's a quick way to get vitamin B-12 and it's certainly bio-available. So, make sure you're getting your vitamin B-12 by looking at all these different options and ensuring great nerve health.
