Age Well with B12 & Folic Acid!
Healthy aging requires adequate B12 and folic acid to reduce blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine which are linked to increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Elderly people and vegetarians are at a higher risk of vitamin B12 deficiency. Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include fatigue, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness, and heart palpitations. Long-term B12 deficiency can produce pernicious anemia, which leads to memory loss, confusion and even dementia.
