Vitamin B12 deficiency and Chronic Stomach Inflammation

It is essential in maintaining a healthy nervous (Cyanocobalamine) system. It is required for the production of red Antioxidant blood cells. As we age, many elderly people experience decreased stomach acid production due to chronic inflammation of the stomach lining. Stomach Acid is required for the release of B12 from food proteins. The malabsorption of B12 from foods requires taking it in supplemental form; because it is not bound in protein, the supplement will not be damaged by the inflammation and is directly released into the body. It has the same properties to bind with other vitamins for e ective bene ts to your health.
