b12It’s amazing to me that with all the new research on supplements and nutritional medicine that we can still find out so many new things about vitamins. I see chronic deficiencies in the blood work of both low libido and depressant clients. This time its not just about Vitamin D that affects sexual functioning. Vitamin B12 is critical for libido as well as good health, and many Americans are B12 deficient according to the new University of North Carolina paper. That can lead to serious problems, from low energy to dementia to mental illness to severe anemia, warns the paper.

Studies show approximately 40 percent of the U.S. population has low B12. At least 16 percent has a true deficiency, with comparable Canadian numbers.

For those who think they’re suffering from the following maladies, the problem may be a simple deficiency of vitamin B12.

o Forgetfulness

o Dementia

o Alzheimer’s disease

o Frequent falls

o Chronic fatigue

o Low Libido

o Depression

o Mental illness

o Parkinson’s like symptoms

So how do you know if you are one of the 40%? Vegetarians will often get a B 12 shot to supplement what they aren’t getting by not eating any meat. But even if you are what my sweetie calls a “meatatarian” a B complex supplement is probably a good thing. I buy the bottle of liquid B complex and put a daily squirt into the family breakfast smoothies. That means even my teenage kids are then getting enough. It comes out like molasses and you don’t notice it having that medicinal taste. It prevents a bevy of problems and it really is one of those sexual supplements like magnesium, zinc, Omega 3, and Vitamin D. Great sexual sensations comes from being abundantly healthy. And in my opinion, your sexual health is far more than latex. It’s the twinkle in your eye when you yell at your sweetie “come over here and service me”.
