Nutritional deficiencies are common among patients diagnosed with Celiac Disease (CD). When CD is triggered, the small intestinal villi become damaged (flattened) over time and are unable to absorb nutrients properly, resulting in deficiencies, sometimes severe. When a deficiency is detected by a health care professional, a supplement is generally recommended until levels return to a normal range. Research suggests that even people who adhere to a strict gluten-free diet may continue to have nutritional deficiencies, or develop new ones, primarily because gluten-free packaged products are not fortified with enough healthy vitamins and nutrients.
B-12 is a vitamin found to be deficient in patients diagnosed with CD, along with iron, calcium, D, folate (& others). A B-12 deficiency is also a concern for the elderly population and people with other conditions such as Pernicious Anemia, Crohn’s, Graves’ Disease and Lupus. Vitamin B-12 is critical for the body to function well and plays a vital role in our health by: Improving cell function; Promoting new red blood cell production; Boosting immune system; Supporting liver function and Improving focus and concentration.
People diagnosed with a B-12 deficiency can replace it with either oral supplements or if a more potent form is required, by injection. In general, B-12 is not absorbed well in the stomach, and when injected, the B-12 goes directly into the muscle tissue, bypassing the digestive system and offering better (100%) absorption.
