So many people are complaining about being tired. It seems to be the malaise of our time. Do you find you just don’t have the same get up and go as you used to? Somewhere along the way, you have come to rely more and more on caffeine to keep you going. No matter how much you sleep, you still wake up tired, right? Join the gang; you’re not alone.

The reasons have become obvious. First of all, the food supply has become depleted of the nutrients it once had. The addition of junk foods, bad oils, starches and preservatives to your diet have clogged up your arteries and made you sluggish. Lastly, but probably most importantly, stress has contributed greatly to the deterioration of your health.

The big question now is what to do about it. Taking multi vitamins is good. So is the addition of antioxidants to your daily diet. The medical profession all too often treats fatigue with antidepressants as it is most often accompanied by listlessness and a lack of zest for life. But none of the above has alleviated your situation, has it? Medication may give you a rosier outlook and an artificially induced sense of peace. But beware of the repercussions in your inward parts! Besides, you’re still tired!

When your body is not feeling its best, it typically lacks vitamins, minerals and/or enzymes. Any form of chronic fatigue may be due to a number of reasons, including medical. Medical research has uncovered one vital element that plays a pivotal role in keeping your energy level up. And that is vitamin B12. This vitamin is processed and stored in the liver of animals. Even people who eat lots of liver, fish, and dairy products may not be getting adequate vitamin B12 in their diet. Vegans and vegetarians may thus be even more affected by the depletion of this crucial vitamin.

When it was first discovered in 1948 that lack of B12 caused pernicious anemia, patients were treated with raw liver on a daily basis! Thankfully, eventually a synthetic version was developed. However, that was difficult to digest. The reason is that vitamin B12 requires very specific conditions to be properly digested.

Although it is absorbed in the small intestine, B12 must interact with the bacteria in your intestines for several hours before it is finally absorbed into your liver. Deficiency of B12 is mainly due to the inability of the intestine to absorb the vitamin. As you age or begin to rely on antacids, your stomach produces less gastric acid, or what is known in medical terminology as Intrinsic Factor. Without it B12 cannot be released from its protein. Due to this oral tablets, although they proliferate on the market, are totally ineffective.

Other factors that affect malabsorption of B12 are the aging process, overeating, fast eating without sufficient chewing, and mixing sugars and/or starches with your protein. Antacids, antibiotics, laxatives, antihistamines and stress are major contributors as well.

Over the years patients with serious vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms have been treated with intravenous B12 shots. Although this has shown some improvement in the condition, much of the B12 is eliminated in the urine. Also, these shots are painful, inconvenient and expensive.

Subsequent research has revealed that folic acid and vitamin B6 work hand in hand with B12. All three combined produce better results than any one of them separately. Taken simultaneously, it has been proven for instance to keep cognitive functions intact among seniors. (Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University) You may be thinking what relationship this has to being tired? Well, fatigue usually affects your brain as well – at any age. When you are really tired, you don’t really feel like solving major problems, do you? You’d much rather close your eyes and let the world go away, right?

The good news for you and me is that, thanks to Dr. Alfred Libby, there now is a solution to being tired all the time! He has developed and patented a sublingual B12, B6 and folic acid tablet, which is placed under the tongue, thus dissolving directly into the blood stream! The beneficial effects are speedy!

What’s even more miraculous is that B12 plays a vital role in the production of brain transmitters such as the “feel good” substances of dopamine and serotonin! What a bonus!! Now you can regain your energy and reclaim your zest for life, naturally and without side effects!

Enjoy your life! Prosper and Be in Health! Remember: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
