It’s an essential b vitamin that you must get from your diet .

And what it does is it makes these little things called nucleic acids , which which are the foundational genetic material for your cells .

So basically , they make the foundation of red blood cells , white blood cells , and myelin .

What is myelin

Myelin is the outer covering of your nervous system , and it allows the connectivity of nerve impulses to travel .

When you lose myelin , you have all sorts of electrical problems , pain problems , nerve problems , pain , MS , all sorts of things .

So that’s what happens when you’re deficient in that .

But you can also become fatigued , pale , memory problems , dementia , Alzheimer’s , neurological issues like peripheral neuropathy with even with , like that’s foot pain or hand pain , anemia .

Kind of you’re completely you know , there’s there’s something called pernicious anemia .

But most b twelve deficiency does does not come from necessarily the diet .

Causes of vitamin B12 deficiency

  • • Fatigue
  • • Pale
  • • Memory problems
  • • Neurological issues
  • • Anemia

Most vitamin B12 deficiencies are not caused by a lack of vitamin B12 in the diet, but rather a lack of absorption because the stomach is not acid enough. A lot of people have a problem with the pH of the stomach.

A few signs of low stomach acid are:

  • Acid reflux
  • GERD
  • • Gas
  • • Bloating

Apple cider vinegar may help with this situation. You could try apple cider vinegar pills, or you could try mixing apple cider vinegar in some water and drinking it.

You may not even need to take more B12 because this could help with the absorption. Sea salt, potassium, and iodine could also help build up your stomach acid and help with absorption.

It comes from the stomach not being acid enough , low stomach acid .

Because it takes a very strong acidic stomach to absorb Vitamin B12 into the body .

Acidic stomach

And a lot of people have a problem with the pH in their stomach .

Normally , a pH in the stomach should be between 1 and 3 , which is really , really acidic .

Low stomach acid

Low stomach acid

The way you know you have low stomach acid is you have acid reflux , GERD , gas , bloating , because the stomach is needed to be able to close the valve , digest protein , absorb minerals like calcium , iron , all these different minerals .

One third of everyone over the age of 65 has a Vitamin B12 deficiency , but they all also have a low stomach acid problem .

So it’s a really simple solution to fix a big problem .

So what do we recommend ?

Apple cider vinegar .

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar pills or just go ahead and start drinking with your meals with some water , with a little straw , and that will create some really cool changes for a lot of people just by adding that one little thing in there .

And you’ll you don’t even need to take more Vitamin B12 .

You can just go ahead and acidify the stomach and a lot of things clear up and you start to absorb Vitamin B12 .

So it’s a real simple , simple solution .

Now to build the stomach acid , you also need certain healthy salt , like in sea salt , because a lot of times when you’re low in sea salt , the acid goes down .

Also , you need potassium .

It comes from the vegetables , so you need potassium to build the acid , also iodine .

So you do need these minerals as well .

So if you’re taking antiacids or you’re just eating poorly or you’re not taking enough minerals and eating healthy , you will lose the stomach acid and then you start having a problem with this , so it’s a whole chain reaction .
