Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2014 -- Orlando, Florida – Obesity may lead to Vitamin B12 deficiency as the condition may affect absorption of the B complex vitamin by the body. Therefore, overweight individuals have to make certain they get sufficient levels of the vitamin through supplementation as deficiency of the vitamin can have serious health consequences such as permanent nerve damage.
Having sufficient levels of Vitamin B12 is very important as it is necessary for various functions within the body including the production of new and healthy red blood cells and maintenance of the nervous system. Although it can be stored in the liver for a long time, people can still be deficient of it, and one of the groups of people whom are at risk of developing this deficiency are the obese.
The main reason why obese individuals have higher chances of developing Vitamin B12 deficiency is that they are more prone to developing diabetes and gastrointestinal problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Diabetic people are typically prescribed with metformin, and those with GERD may have to take PPIs (proton-pump inhibitors). These medications may negatively affect their ability to absorb Vitamin B12.
All things considered, obese individuals are urged to make sure that they have sufficient levels of the vitamin. In addition to getting it from their diet that should include protein, they can get it through Vitamin B12 liquid drops supplementation from Choice Nutrition Supplements.
“I'd been receiving B-12 injections at the doctor's office for the diagnosis of fatigue and tingling in the legs. A friend suggested that I try this product and I switched to the Vitamin B-12 Complex Sublingual Drops for convenience. I am glad I did. I really feel this has helped my energy level and would highly recommend this product.” – Brenda, Choice Nutrition Supplements Vitamin B-12 Complex user
