Vitamin B-12 deficiency can have many causes. . Diet. Vitamin B-12 is only found in meats. With modern convenience foods, it's possible to eat a lot but still not get enoug…h B-12. Also, vegetarians/vegans will have no supply at all (some vegetables like soy have B-12, but not in a form the human body can digest). Increasing meats and dairy products in your diet (especially clams, mollusks and liver) will increase dietary B-12. Fortified breakfast cereals are also a good source of B-12. . Digestive problems. Getting B-12 out of your stomach and into your bloodstream is remarkably complicated. Any medical issues affecting the gastrointestinal tract can result in B-12 deficiency, including simple old age. Crohn's disease, IBS and others do too. . Medications. Quite a few medications can interfere with B-12 absorption, as well as smoking and drinking. The most common culprits are antacids and migraine medication. . Gastric bypass or other gastrointestional surgery like stomach cancer removal. Many gastric surgical procedures will remove tissue required for proper vitamin B-12 uptake. . Other medical issues. Many other medical issues can result in B-12 deficiency indirectly. Examples are chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and arthritis. If you have any problems with B-12 deficiency, you're best off getting supplementation. And if you have any digestive issues, surgery or medications that interfere with digestion you're best off with either B-12 shots (painful, inconvenient, expensive) or vitamin B-12 transdermal patches (easy, cheap, pain free - you just stick one on your neck for twenty four hours and that's it). If you supplement, be sure to avoid cobalamin or cyanocobalamin in favour of methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin is the form your border needs B-12 to be in; otherwise it has to work to turn cobalamin into methylcobalamin.
It's known as vitamin A deficiency. Signs and symptoms include: . Nyctalopia (poor adaptation to darkness) . Xerophthalmia (pathologic dryness of the conjunctiva and and co…rnea) .

Follicular hyperkeratosis (due to clogging of hair follicles) . Pruritus (skin itching)

Carrots contain beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. But there's more to vitamin A than beta-carotene. Vitamin A falls into a much larger family of nutrients called carote…noids. Many carotenoids provide health benefits. In general carotenoids work as http://healthyanswers.com/multi-vitamin/2009/10/the-truth-about-antioxidants/ in your body. They help to neutralize free radicals and clean up after the damage that they do. Because your eyes contain such delicate cells, they are very vulnerable to free radical damage. By getting a variety of carotenoids, you'll help protect your eye cells from that damage. Some carotenoids like alpha carotene and beta-carotene also promote vitamin A production, which further supports the http://healthyanswers.com/general-health/2009/04/natural-ways-to-beat-colds-and-boost-your-immune-system/ . In one study, a diet rich in beta-carotene and lycopene proved to help protect skin cells from damage by the sun's ultra-violet rays. Researchers believe that diets rich in these two carotenoids will help protect against skin cancer. In another study, researchers found that lycopene plays a protective role against heart disease. Lycopene helps prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and hardening the arteries.Cholesterol oxidation is a major contributor to heart disease. The carotenoids zeaxanthin and lutein help lower the risk of macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness. These two nutrients can reduce your risk of this devastating disease by 35%.
