Hey, guys, Dr. Axe here from In this video, I'm going to talk about how to overcome a Vitamin B-12 deficiency and the great health benefits of Vitamin B-12. And Vitamin B-12 is something that about 40% of people are deficient in today. And it really is one of your body's most important vitamins and something that a lot of people struggle with. And if you struggle with any type of fatigue or low energy, levels that is a big warning sign that you have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. If you struggle with lack of focus or poor memory issues, that's a big warning sign you have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. If you are a person out there that's struggles with poor cellular function or you've been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, that's a warning sign that you have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

Also, anemia, if you have anemia or you ever stand up and you felt light-headed or here and there, you feel, again, like you get light-headed when you stand up, that's a warning sign you have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. And this is very, very common in people. Also, if you have a thyroid condition like hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto's, or adrenal fatigue, or adrenal gland issues, and you get emotionally stressed out easy and frazzle easy, those are the biggest warning signs that you may have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. In this video, I'm going to go over exactly how you overcome a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. By the way, it's probably going to surprise you some of the answers I give. Now here is my first thing I want to talk about with Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

The biggest reason that most people have Vitamin B-12 deficiencies is because they don't have a healthy digestive system. So some of us get enough Vitamin B-12 in our diet in certain ways, but we're not absorbing and digesting Vitamin B-12 properly and that's because you can develop a condition called leaky gut, having a leaky gut can be caused by consuming things like gluten, too many dairy products and other issues can cause digestive issues and then proteins leak through your gut. It causes something called malabsorption. So malabsorption is when you're not actually digesting the food you're eating. You know a lot of people have heard the principle “You are what you eat,” it's not true. You are what you digest. And if you're not digesting properly, you are not able to absorb Vitamin B-12.

And so, the first people that tend to have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency are people that struggle with leaky gut and digestive issues. And so if you have food allergies, if you have any sort of bloating, or gas, or acid reflux, or inflammatory bowel disease, that probably means that you Vitamin B-12 deficiency. The second subgroup of people that have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency are people that are vegans or vegetarians because they're getting little to no Vitamin B-12 in your diet. You only get Vitamin B-12, if you're consuming meat products. They're not found in vegetables so that would leave you at a deficiency and the third group of people that would tend to have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency are people that follow a poor diet and don't have enough probiotics in their diet or good bacteria.

And so again, if you don't consume probiotic-rich foods on a regular basis that probably means that you could have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. And Vitamin-B-12 is important for so many things. Vitamin B-12 benefits include improving red blood cell formation which is important for energy and heart health. They actually help with a cellular function which is important for your cells and body functioning property. They actually support the brain and nerve system. And they're actually studies out there showing that actually there are 430 studies that prove that if you're deficient in Vitamin B-12, it's almost been linked to anxiety and depression. And so, obviously, Vitamin B-12 is important for a lot of things especially your red blood cell cellular function and supporting the brain and nerve system. And here is how you can overcome Vitamin B-12 deficiency and really take your health to the next level. Number one, start consuming more Vitamin B-12 rich foods. And the best Vitamin B-12 foods are going to be liver, so chicken liver, beef liver. After that, wild caught fish, like wild-caught salmon and tuna, are packed with Vitamin B-12, then doing grass-fed beef and lamb products.

In fact, grass-fed lamb is very high and grass-fed beef in Vitamin B-12. And then the fourth group of food is actually going to be raw dairy products. Things like kefir, yogurt, raw cheeses, raw milk, but raw dairy products are the source of getting Vitamin B-12. So step number one, get more Vitamin B-12 foods in your diet. Number two, and I think this is amazing, there is a study that came out of Stanford University that found if you take a probiotic supplement, it greatly increases your levels of Vitamin B-12. And here's what people think, you'd think, you're deficient in Vitamin B-12, that means you have to start loading up on Vitamin B-12 supplements or getting Vitamin B shots. No, the truth is if you're doing that without absorbing it, it doesn't matter. Probiotics help you absorb the Vitamin B-12 you're taking, and so you've got to be getting a good quality probiotic supplement and loading up on probiotic foods if you want to overcome a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

And the third step would be you've got to start really healing your gut, getting your gut healthy, and that's going to include probiotics. It's going to include getting gluten and inflammatory foods out of your diet. So really Step Three is improving your diet. And Step Four is taking the right supplements. You can take a high-quality Vitamin B-12 supplement. In fact, there are Vitamin B-12 sprays that work very well. You can take Vitamin B-12 and a B-complex vitamin or isolated. Also, you can take a desiccated liver supplement and take liver in a capsule form and get it that way. And no matter how you take it, taking a Vitamin B-12 in supplement form to increase your dose is also very important.

So if you can really follow those steps, you can help address that Vitamin B-12 deficiency. And for some people, you will immediately notice you function better. Your energy is increased. Your adrenal glands are better. You're less stressed. Your mood is improved. You can find all of those benefits by consuming Vitamin B-12 food and overcoming your Vitamin B-12 deficiency.
