If you’re lacking this critical vitamin, then your body is going to let you know in some pretty scary ways. 

How? According to Harvard Health, not having enough of this critical vitamin can trigger signs and symptoms like:

  • Strange sensations, numbness, or tingling in the hands, legs, or feet
  • Balance problems
  • Anemia
  • Cognitive difficulties, memory lapses, difficulty reasoning
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue

And best selling author Dr. Earl Mindell adds this trifecta to the list:

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • And even apathy

Any of these symptoms are a red flag for most people. But as a first responder, with lives on the line, these symptoms require your serious attention. 

What’s worse is that even if you’re getting this vitamin in your diet, alcohol can wipe it right out of your system.

Now, imagine the possibility of alleviating the above symptoms, boosting your energy, improving your memory, and reducing your risk of heart disease with just one vitamin. 

It’s possible.

So what is this miraculous little vitamin? 

You’ve probably heard of it and it’s close cousins before. It’s not some groundbreaking herb found in the far reaches of rural Asia. 

It’s B-12. Surprised? So were we when we really dug into the research on this potent vitamin. 

The Miraculous Benefits of B-12

B-12 is a vitamin you don’t need much of, but like many vitamins, minerals and herbs, you do need it. 

Here are the top benefits we discovered…

  1. Helps produce healthy red blood cells
  2. Helps prevent major birth defects
  3. May prevent osteoporosis
  4. Supports healthy nails, skin and hair
  5. Assists in decreasing Homocysteine to improve heart health
  6. May give an energy boost (along with its other B-vitamin cousins)
  7. May improve symptoms of depression and increase mood
  8. Supports brain function by limiting the loss of neurons
  9. Could delay eye diseases such as macular degeneration

As you can see, this is a powerful little vitamin. 

So how do you get enough? 

The top 5 foods to consider for getting enough B-12 in your diet are:

  1. Animal Liver and Kidneys
  2. Clams
  3. Dairy and fortified non-dairy milk
  4. Eggs with yolks (no, they’re not bad for us after all)
  5. Fatty fish like sardines, salmon, and trout

In other words, if you eat a regular diet of meat, eggs, and dairy, you’re probably getting enough. Assuming those are high-quality, mostly organic sources. And assuming you’re not destroying the vitamins you are getting with alcohol. 

However, vegetarians, vegans, pregnant and breastfeeding women along with people with intestinal problems should consider a supplement of B12. 

Just One Example

B12 is just one example of a single vitamin that has ripple effects on our bodies. And the more stress we put on our bodies, the more likely we are to negate the vitamins, minerals and herbs we get from our food. Again, assuming we’re eating a high-quality, high-variety diet in the first place. 

If you’re not absolutely certain you’re getting enough high-quality nutrients in your food (and almost no one is these days unless you’re a full time health food guru on instagram) then you might want to consider trying a supplement like Reload.
