Old Age or B12?

A mind blowing discovery recently printed in the New York Times by Jane E. Brody, indicates that a B12 deficiency can show similar symptoms to someone with Alzheimer’s. She shares an evocative story of Mrs. Katz, who was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease. Mrs. Katz was also found to have a B12 deficiency, and after receiving weekly injections of B12, her symptoms decreased incredibly. As we age our ability to absorb B12 from food declines, and a B12 deficiency can creep up without warning with symptoms that can be misdiagnosed or ascribed to aging. This may just be your loved one’s shot at a newer life.
