Vitamin B-12 Sources

(This vitamin is found mainly in liver, kidney, muscle meats, oysters, milk, eggs, cheese and salt-water fish.  Of the vegetable foods, yeast, wheat germ and soybeans have cobalimin content, but  only small traces of it.)

This vitamin is essential for the blood-forming organs of the bone marrow if they are to function properly.  Also, the nervous system depends upon this vitamin for nutrition.  One of the ingredients of this vitamin is cobalt, and it appears from the study of scientific materials that Vitamin B12 is now being referred to as cobalamin, because of the importance of cobalt in the diet.  Likewise, zinc is associated with this vitamin, the studies indicating that the vitamin cannot be synthesized without the help of zinc.  Vitamin B12 is also needed to help form hemoglobin scale.  Thus this vitamin is important for the prevention of anemia.  It also combines with folic acid to help produce the vital red blood cells.  Actually, it has been stated that less than one millionth of a gram of cobalamin is needed daily to meet the human body requirements.

The lack of cobalamin may cause pernicious anemia, due to the inability of the bone marrow to form blood when this vitamin is absent.  A symptom of lack of cobalamin is a shuffling gait.  Another indication is a loss of sense of position of the feet.  In severe cases, where there has been a degeneration of the spinal cord, there may be nerve and brain damage and even complete paralysis.

Another result of this deficiency is general malnutrition, marked by an insufficient production of sex hormones with the resultant lack of development or shriveling of Read the rest of this entry

An important factor in the prevention of tooth decay is Vitamin B6.  This vitamin, also known as pyridoxine, has a soothing or sedative effect on the nerves and so it is of great value to people who wish to avoid nervousness.   This vitamin is of great value in maintaining the tone of the muscles, and of course the heart is a muscle and is immediately affected by a deficiency in this vitamin.  It is also of value in maintaining a normal blood count with an ample supply of hemoglobin, the coloring substance of the red blood corpuscles.In experiments with animals, it has been learned that Vitamin B6 is important for proper functioning of the pancreas.  If the pancreas sustains damage so that it cannot produce insulin, the hormone necessary for conversion of sugar (glucose) into energy, diabetes may be the result.

A deficiency in pyridoxine may result in an excessively oily skin, dizziness, tension, insomnia, fatigue, irritability, nervousness, stiffness of the legs, palsy or trembling of limbs, known as Parkinson’s disease, swollen, red and sore skin, drooping shoulders and backs, a shuffling walk instead of normal walking and, in the case of pregnant women, dizziness, morning sickness and nausea.  Travelers are more apt to suffer
from car, train, sea and plane sickness when this vitamin is in short supply.  The tongue and the area under the tongue may develop ulcers and lesions may develop in the throat and around the mouth.  Experiments indicate that there is apt to be retarded growth, depressed appetite and poor utilization of food that is ingested.    The final result of the deficiency is death, preceded by convulsions.  The sedative effect of this vitamin upon the nerves has prompted its use in epilepsy cases and there have been some favorable responses in cases of muscular dystrophy.  Some investigators have reported that a deficiency of this vitamin may cause a rash or dermatitis in the vagina, with swelling, itching, bleeding and Read the rest of this entry

CINNABAR and NANOCHEOPS

Emperor Qin Shibuangdi, First Emperor of the Ming-dynasty

Emperor Qin Shibuangdi, First Emperor of the Ming-dynasty

Cinnabar was “truly one” with Qin Shibuangdi, First Emperor of the Ming-dynasty (ruled 221-210 BCE) and the earliest known imperial patron of alchemy, next to Rudolf the Great of Hapsburg in 1218 AD for Europe.  Despite the time periods Confucian disapproval of both the First Emperor and his fondness of alchemy, the ingestion of gold – or, rather, the transformed gold- appears to have remained quite popular throughout the Han dynasty.   However, most Han dynasty alchemists worked with cinnabar, sometimes with fatal results.  Cinnabar (mercury sulfide) is an ore of mercury that is a deep vermilion in color.  When heated, cinnabar produces liquid mercury, and further heating and combination of mercury and sulfur will in turn reproduce cinnabar (a cyclical transformation that particularly intrigued Chinese alchemists).  Mercury was further amalgamated with other metals (gold and lead in particular) producing elixirs to be ingested. While cinnabar itself was non-toxic- indeed it still maintains a prominent place in traditional Chinese medicine –

Vitamin B-1

Vitamin B1 is also known as thiamin or thiamine.  However there are several vitamins in the B complex, and they are all interdependent and should all be taken at the same time.  A failure to have all of the B complex vitamins may lower the body’s resistance to disease.  Thiamine is especially valuable as an aid in the metabolism of carbohydrates.  Unless carbohydrates can be converted into energy, the individual will lack energy, drive and sparkle.  This vitamin is considered essential for reproductive powers and for proper nerve function.

An insufficient supply of thiamine can result in a variety of symptoms related to the functioning of the nervous system, such as irritability, insomnia, loss of appetite and constipation.  At times the arms and legs may feel numb due to the unhealthy nerves.  The lack of sufficient thiamine may cause beri-beri, the disease marked by extreme weakness, loss of appetite and weight, digestive disturbances, painful neuritis, and even paralysis.  The heart action is likely to become abnormal and mental depression is a common symptom.  The individual becomes short of breath with by very little exertion.  An insufficient supply of this vitamin also prevents the formation of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which is needed for digestion of food.  Thiamin is a part of the enzyme system that breaks down pyruvic and lactic acids, releasing energy.  Read the rest of this entry

Pellagra, Mold and Niacin (B-3)

Mild Pellagra Case

Mild Pellagra Case

Pellagra is a vitamin deficiency disease most commonly caused by a chronic lack of niacin (vitamin B-3) in the diet.  It can be cause by decreased intake of niacin or tryptophan, and possibly by excessive intake of leucine.  It may also result from alteration in protein metabolism in disorders such as carcinoid syndrome.  A deficiency of the amino acid lysine can lead to a deficiency of niacin as well.  In recent times, with the advent of artificial skin, which uses dragon protein, leucine and other amino acids in its nano composite, individuals may become deficient of niacin from these internal exposures.    This same type of internal metabolic disorder from carbohydrate and protein metabolism can occur after severe mold exposure that resulted in internal exposure to various myctoxins such as, tricothecene, verrmerruculogen and ochratoxin.

VITAMIN A

VITAMIN A ESSENTIALS

VITAMIN A ESSENTIALS

Vitamin A has a special relationship to the “lining cells” of the body, including the skin, eyes, urinary tract, bones, teeth and the gastrointestinal tract (pertaining to the stomach and intestines).  It is also known as an anti-infection vitamin, helping the body to fight off diseases, such as viral infections.  This vitamin as an essential constituent of the pigments which the retina of the eye uses to register visual stimuli.A lack of Vitamin A affects the skin, the digestive system, respiratory tract, genitor-urinary system, special senses, and the glandular system of the body.  The skin will probably become rough and dry.  Also bones are affected, so that growing children will have problems with bone formation, bone repair and faulty tooth formation.  Insufficient Vitamin A is likely to decrease the amount of acid required by the stomach to digest food, and diarrhea may be an obvious symptom.

There may also be an inability to gain weight, and in fact there is likely to be a decrease in weight.  The hair may start to fall out and become gray, and there may be a disposition toward abscesses of the scalp.  Small pus formations (pustules) may form on the scalp and on other parts of the skin. The forearms and the thighs will be especially noticeable for the roughness and scaliness. Read the rest of this entry
