Vitamin B-12 (Cobalami)

Between the 8 B vitamins, vitamin B-12 is especially important to maintain healthy nerve cells as well as in the production of DNA and RNA, the genetic material in the body.

It helps the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose, which is used to produce energy and also helps the body to assimilate fats and protein.

B complex vitamins are essential for healthy skin, hair, eyes and liver and also help for a proper function of the nervous system.

Together with vitamin B-9 (folate/folic acid) vitamin B-12 helps to produce red blood cells and iron work better in the bodily system. B-9 and B-12 together produce S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), important for immune function and a balanced mood.

As all B vitamins, B-12 is water soluble; it´s not stored by the body and has to be added with the nutrition.

Though it is rare for children to have vitamin B-12 deficiency, older people and especially vegans and vegetarians often experience a lack of B-12. This can be due to their diet or when they have less stomach acid, which is needed to absorb vitamin B-12.

People with HIV, Crohn disease, diabetes, weight loss surgery, eating disorders and pancreatic disease, to mention but a few, are under high risk to experience B-12 deficiency.

Typical symptoms of a lack of B-12 can be:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nervousness
  • Numbness
  • Fatigue
  • Short breath
  • Tingling fingers and toes

Severe deficiency of B12 can cause including serious diseases and nerve damage.

You can find B-12 only in animal products, especially in

  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish
  • Dairy products
  • Liver and kidney
  • Beef
  • Pork

Taking in mind its effect on the body, to take vitamin B-12 supplements have shown to be supportive in cases of:

  • age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • coronary artery disease
  • fatigue
  • breast cancer
  • male infertility

Why Omega-3-fatty acids?

Omega-3-fatty acids are essential elements in our bodies, which are not produced by the body and thus need to be added with our nutrition.

They are very important not only for the development of a child but also help to maintain our bodies to be healthy.

You can find Omega-3-fatty acids for example in cold water fish such a hering, makrele, salmon, sardine, tuna and krill as well as in some specific micro algas from the sea.

In plant based fat and oil you will find ALA (alpha-linolacid), a kind of „primarily step“, from which the body can build up the biological more activ EPA and DHA.

Why do we consider Omega-3 fatty acids as so important?

Omega-3-fatty acids can be supportive:

– for a better brain function and eyesight for children

– to balance high blood pressure

– to lower high cholesterol

– in cases of diabetes

– to prevent osteoporosis, specially important for women in menopause

– to relieve chronic inflammation

– the treatment of asthma, bipolarity, depression

– to get pregnant as well as pregnancy and breast feeding time

– to improve blood circulation

– to prevent heart attacks

– a balanced heart rhythm

– good health for the eyes

– a healthy brainfunction and metabolism

– athlets in training and competition

Reiki is one of the best ways to support your general wellbeing; though, to maintain healthy on all levels, body, emotions and mental fitness, you will need more than reiki sessions once in a while. A balanced life is the best basis to feel good.

Everybody knows, that frequent exercise (for example 30 minutes walking,                 YOGA) as well as a good, balanced diet are the basis to feel good and to maintain healthy.

Unfortunately eating well and balanced nowadays does not necessarily guarantee an optimal input of nutrients and thus perfect functioning of our bodies.
