FRUNUTTA: Can B12 help prevent dementia?

 

We at Frunutta feel that regardless of how helpless one may feel in the face of disease such as dementia we can always try some preventive measures to help ourselves or our loved ones.

 

A recent medically reviewed article discussed the benefits of B12 regarding neurological preventative diseases. We have summarized the article and the benefits of B12 here for our readers.

 

Vitamin B12 has many known health benefits from assisting in production of red blood cells to possibly preventing dementia. Most people can get obtain vitamin B12 from foods such as eggs and red meat; however, at times dietary supplements are needed to increase your bodies B12 levels.

 

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in the body as the methylated form Methylcobalamin. However, many vitamin companies only offer the synthetic form Cyanocobalamin which is not able to be processed into the methylated form by a certain subset of the population. We at Frunutta provide our customers with both forms of vitamin B12 so our customers can have a choice in their vitamins.

 

Vitamin B12 Benefits!

 

Vitamin B12 has many proven benefits and one is in the production of red blood cells. Without the benefit of B12 the body will be unable to produce adequate red blood cells which carry oxygen to the body and that is known as a form of anemia.

 

Vitamin B12 may also improve depression. In a recent study subjects injected with B12 and treated with antidepressants fared better than the group that was only treated with the antidepressant.

 

Vitamin B12 may assist the body in hair and nail growth and avoid the skin disease Vitiligo, were patches of discolored skin form.

 

Vitamin B12 may assist with prevention of dementia in elderly. A study in the American Academy of Neurology monitored 107 patients over 61 years of age for 5 years showing greater rate of atrophy on MRI studies in subjects that were B12 deficient vs. controls. Vitamin B12 appears to be crucial for a well-functioning brain and nervous system. The study concluded that “Low vitamin B12 status should be further investigated as a modifiable cause of brain atrophy and of likely subsequent cognitive impairment in the elderly”.

 

 

Vitamin B12 Absorption!


The problem with any oral vitamin B12 is that it must be swallowed. Now, whether you chew, drink or swallow your vitamin the biggest issue is that the vitamin must survive the stomach acids and then the pancreatic fluids introduced in the small intestine, get absorbed by the intestine, and finally survive the liver-bypass metabolism that all food must go through when swallowed. After which, only a fraction of that vitamin survives and enters your blood stream. If all of that was not bad enough, B12 must be bound to a protein called Intrinsic Factor (IF) to do any of that, which as we get older the body makes less and less of it. Hence there is such a huge business for B12 injections.
