Beat the Economy Blues

Struggling with a tough economy can take a real toll on health. In fact, earlier this year the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published guidelines to help people cope.
The guidelines state: “Economic turmoil (e.g., increased unemployment, foreclosures, loss of investments and other financial distress) can result in a whole host of negative health effects – both physical and mental. It can be particularly devastating to your emotional and mental well-being.” Some of the health risks involved include depression, anxiety, overeating and substance abuse.

Years of clinical data demonstrate why taking a quality B-12 supplement may help ease emotional and mental problems. It’s well known that B-12 deficiency can lead to decreased mental and nerve functioning, including mental confusion and forgetfulness, mood swings and low energy.

What’s more, because aging reduces our bodies’ ability to absorb B vitamins, we may be eating healthy foods, but still be lacking in these crucial vitamins.

Alfred Libby, M.D. – Inventor of TriVita Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid Dr. Libby, a renowned nutraceutical pioneer, worked to help hundreds of patients feel better every day. An associate of Dr. Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize Laureate), Dr. Libby developed this unique, sublingual delivery system for his own patients. It was known to give similar mental energy results as B-12 shots, but without the shots’ added pain and expense. Coping with the economic “meltdown” is a real struggle for many people around the world, but it doesn’t have to be the controlling factor in our happiness. If you or someone you care about is having financial trouble, stay focused on health to feel better. Let TriVita’s quality B-12 products, and the 10 Essentials, be your key to beating the economy “blues.”

Could B-12 Curb the Bipolar Epidemic ?

While this research is still underway, we do know that the number of people, young and old, being diagnosed with bipolar disorder (it used to be called manic-depression) continues to climb. Mental health experts estimate that some 5.7 million adults are affected by the highs and lows of this very serious problem. The trend is especially disturbing when you look at what’s happening with children under 18.

A research paper published in a psychiatric journal recently reported this shocking statistic: The number of youths diagnosed with bipolar disorder is 40 times higher than it was 10 years ago. So it isn’t surprising that some are calling this mood disorder an epidemic.

You might have even seen a Newsweek cover story on this topic in a recent issue. Dramatic evidence that a vitamin powerhouse can help boost mental well-being. Bipolar disorder is classified as a medical illness, and those who suffer from it experience extreme swings in mood, energy and ability to function. While strong prescription drugs are often prescribed to treat this problem, there can be dangerous side effects. And, not everyone can or should take these pharmaceutical medications. That’s why, if you or someone in your life struggles with mood issues, it is vital to work on ways to control stress, remain very active, and get a balanced diet, including appropriate supplements, in particular B-12.

Studies have shown that those who have a B-12 deficiency can experience symptoms caused by decreased mental and nerve functioning. These symptoms can include mental confusion and forgetfulness, mood swings and even psychotic behavior like seeing and/or hearing things. A B-12 deficiency can also lead to shaky movements and walking unsteadily (ataxia), loss of bladder control, vision problems and muscle weakness. Because of these associations, one of the first things I do when people complain of these problems is make sure they are getting enough of the essential vitamins like B-12.

Who’s at risk, what you can do If you’re an older adult, a strict vegetarian, or have thyroid, liver or kidney problems, you’re at risk for B-12 deficiency. As we age, our bodies may become less able to absorb some vitamins efficiently, especially in the case of Vitamin B-12. Without enough B-12, other vitamins like folate and B-6 cannot function normally within the body. As you continue your own Sublingual B-12 daily regimen (and recommend it to others), you’re taking a positive step forward to promote optimum health in mind and body.
